Homeopathic Treatment for Loss of Appetite

The loss of appetite is known as Anorexia. There are various causes for the loss of appetite. Some causes are psychological in nature and include stress, grief and anxiety disorders. Other causes may be bacterial or viral infections. Diseases like hypothyroidism, tuberculosis, chronic liver disease, chronic kidney disease, hepatitis, and cancer can also lead to the loss of appetite. Certain medications and drug addictions also cause Anorexia. Another significant reason for the loss of appetite is Anorexia Nervosa. In homeopathy, cases of loss of appetite are treated with much success. Homeopathic treatment for loss of appetite uses medicines that help stimulate appetite.

Homeopathy helps by safely boosting the appetite. It works by correcting the cause of the anorexia to enhance the appetite. These medicines are useful for treating anorexia in patients of all age groups. Top grade homeopathic medicines to treat loss of appetite are Alfalfa, Antimonium Crudum, Psorinum, China, Colchicum, and Ignatia.

Homeopathic Treatment for Loss of Appetite

1. Alfalfa – Top Grade Medicine for Poor Appetite

Alfalfa is a high-grade treatment for loss of appetite. Alfalfa helps tone up the appetite in a very natural way. Along with boosting the appetite, it also helps to provide mental and physical strength to the body. Alfalfa works well in patients who experience a loss of appetite accompanied by weight loss, loss of flesh and emaciation. In such cases, the medicine helps improve the appetite as well as gain weight. Alfalfa is also a suitable medicine for anorexia nervosa and loss of appetite with weakness, fatigue, and exhaustion.

2. Antimonium Crudum And Psorinum – Appetite That Has Diminished After a Severe Disease

Antimonium Crudum and Psorinum are well indicated medicines for treating anorexia. These medicines help stimulate appetite after a serious illness. A patient needing Antimonium Crudum experiences a loss of appetite along with an aversion to every kind of food. But in some cases, the patient can eat acidic and sour things and has an aversion to all other food. Nausea and a bitter taste in the mouth are accompanying symptoms. Along with these features, the tongue feels thickly coated. Psorinum works well when there is a loss of appetite, but there is a constant thirst for water. Other symptoms include belching that tastes like rotten eggs. Psorinum is also useful for the loss of appetite and weakness arising after an acute disease. In such cases, Psorinum helps to improve appetite as well as provide strength to the body.

3. China – For Poor Appetite and Abdominal Fullness

China is a beneficial remedy for improving appetite. It works by helping to aid the desire to eat. This medicine works well in cases of reduced appetite with a sensation of fullness in the abdomen. China is useful when a person feels full in the stomach all the time. The abdomen feels bloated and distended. There is an aversion to all food. China works well in cases where there is not a complete loss of appetite, but the patient feels satiated by eating very little. Lastly, China is a beneficial medicine for a total loss of appetite during malaria.

4. Colchicum – When Nausea Accompanies Anorexia

Colchicum is another excellent treatment for loss of appetite. It helps to promote appetite in such cases. Colchicum is most helpful when nausea is present along with the loss of appetite. A person requiring Colchicum gets nauseous at the thought or smell of food. The patient feels hungry, but on smelling food, the appetite vanishes. If food is somehow taken, it seems tasteless. Colchicum helps to reduce nausea and stimulate the appetite.

5. Ignatia – Anorexia From Depression or Sadness

Ignatia is a high-grade treatment for loss of appetite. It helps to bring back appetite in patients who have lost their appetite due to depression. The guiding feature to use Ignatia is a loss of appetite from sadness, grief, and depression. A patient needing Ignatia refuses to eat and is absorbed in sad thoughts. The person feels sad and disappointed all the time, avoids the company of people, and feels exhausted both mentally and physically. Ignatia will help to recover from depression and assist in regaining the healthy appetite.

      My 93 year old mother has no appetite. She is still walking with a fame. I take her home everyday from a nursing home and cook her nutritious meals but she barely eats. This has been going on for years and she has lost a lot of weight. She is still enthusiastic about life. About a year ago she was diagnosed with scleradoma which affects the muscles in her neck from working properly according to doctors.Is there anything I can do to get her to eat more. She is only on a vitamin D capsule daily.
