What is appetite loss?

Almost any infection can cause a loss of appetite.  Sometime obesity that leads to diet fads cause eating disorder; emotionally blocking the mind from eating.

Remedy (Nuskhe)

  • Mix half teaspoon each of—carom seeds (ajwain), fennel seeds (saunf), dried ginger powder (saunth), salt and black cumin seeds (shah jeera).  Swallow about ¾ teaspoon of this mixture with water—2-3 times a day.
  • Take 2 teaspoons of amla juice and mix it with 2 teaspoons honey and 2 teaspoons lemon juice.  Add 1 cup water and drink on an empty stomach every morning.  To take out juice from fresh amla, remove seeds and grind the pulp into a fine paste.  Tie it in a muslin cloth and squeeze out the juice.  Whenever fresh fruits are not available, dried amla can be used.  Soak 1 tablespoon of dried amla at night in a cup of water.  Strain it the next morning.  Add 18 teaspoon black pepper powder (kali mirch) and 2 teaspoon lemon juice.  Dilute it if necessary with water and drink every morning regularly on an empty stomach.
  • Take ½ teaspoon black pepper powder (kali mirch) and 1 tablespoon jaggery powder (shakkar) mixed together.
  • Cut 1 inch piece ginger (adrak) into small pieces.  Add 1½ cups of water.  Boil.  Simmer for 2-3 minutes.  Add milk and sugar to taste, and take it frequently like tea.
The consumption of plums increase appetite and helps in the digestion of food.
