APPETITE, lack of (in children)
A young mother complained that her 2 year old son suffered from a chronic lack of appetite, was tired and listless, had dark rings under the eyes and hardly ever wanted to go for a walk. This changed rapidly when, following my advice, she gave the child a Thyme bath which was prepared from 50 gm of herbs (see on Thyme “directions”; the heart region has to be outside the water). In addition the child had to sip 1 cup of Stinging Nettle tea daily. The happy mother told me that she hardly recognized her child. He showed good appetite, enjoyed being outdoors and going for walks. It was quite funny, how the little boy kept reminding her of the Stinging Nettle tea “one sip at a time” as he said.
