I have had an symptoms of anorexia (loss of appetite) for 30 years. Anorexia can be caused by bacterial, viral, fungal, or other infections such as respiratory, pneumonia, gastroenteritis, colitis, skin infection, meningitis, etc. I have treated problems such as candida or parasites, removed amalgam (mercury) fillings, replaced infected teeth with implants, and have fairly well overcome chronic constipation with IBS. I feel so much better, but I still frequently feel like I can't eat after stool - due to bloating and also sinking feeling in stomach, after stool.
If I have already had enough fruit and have loose stool, I may need to dip rice cakes in a mix of organic mayonnaise, olive oil and Bragg Liquid Aminos. Lately I have discovered Grapeseed Oil VEGENAISE by Follow Your Heart. It is in a refrigerated case in health stores. Makes my stomach feel good. Also, I may eat some natural sweet or dill pickle.
Or, I may need to eat some plain goat yogurt with brewer's yeast, goat whey and lecthin to settle the stomach and give me a pick-up.
If the pit of stomach seems painful, that would be a sign of duodenitis. In that case, I find it helpful to eat a piece of raw potato after scraping off the pealing and a piece of raw cabbage, chewing well, with green olives made with sodium alginate (Sodium Alginate removes bad effects of x-ray).
Natrum Sulphuricum 6x The signs for needing Nat Sulph are: biliousness with excess internal and external burning heat, burning pain in stomach with thirst for cold drinks, pain and stiffness in shoulders and nape of neck, loose stools, and sadness.
Well, now I have returned to a remedy I had used years ago for severe bilious condition, Natrum Sulphuricum, 6x. Wow, Nat. Sulph. and its complements are resolving my anorexia problems. I do find with this treatment remedy, however, that I may need to have more fruit or some spiced apple cider before meals to avoid constipation.
Natrum Sulphuricum (sodium sulfate) is one of the 12 cell salts. It is a natural constituent of the tissues and fluids of the entire body. It is not like taking a drug. Nat Sulph has to be in the body or you would not be alive. If there is a slight deficiency, one may feel a little less than alive - not so good.
