Herbal Remedies for Lack Of Appetite

Lack of appetite, or anorexia is a symptom that can accompany a wide range of metabolic disorders. Appetite loss also occurs in hot weather or when one is tired or emotionally upset, and may not be a sign of illness. If this condition persists for more than a few days to one week, it is wise to consult a qualified health care practitioner or physician.

Herbal treatment consists of digestive stimulants and relaxing herbs. Two particularly effective herbs are hops and wild lettuce, as they contain both digestive stimulating and relaxing properties.
