A decrease in appetite can be a dangerous situation because it hinders the function of the immune system and causes the body to lack nutrients it needs to function in a healthy way. Now we all have times that we just don't feel like eating, but if it's a regular problem, you want to be sure you do something about it.
What could cause a decrease in appetite?
Here are some ideas to naturally increase the appetite:
*Alfalfa is a green food that is a very nutritious appetite stimulant. I add this to my tea mixtures that we drink on a regular basis because it is extremely rich in vitamins and minerals, it has 8 essential amino acids and the highest chlorophyll content of any plant. Click here to buy alfalfa.
*Green Tea is good to drink half an hour before you eat to stimulate the appetite. Green tea is another herb that I add on a regular basis to my mixture of teas. Studies have shown it to fight and help prevent cancer, and it decreases the risk of tooth decay. Click here for green tea.
*Chamomile is another herb that can stimulate the appetite, especially if the decrease of appetite is from stress or anxiety. Chamomile settles the stomach and calms the nerves. It also aids in digestion and expels gas. This herb is good for any age, and is especially used for babies. Click here for the whole flowers and here for the powder form. The flowers are good to make a tea from, and the powder can be put into capsules or sprinkled in food.
~All 3 of these above herbs can be taken freely and as much as you wish, for children and adults!
