Ayurvedic view of Treatment

The cardinal features of this condition are loss of desire for food or distaste for food, even which may be one's own liking. Vata dosha, in association with Pachaka pitta play vital role in bringing about hunger. Hunger stimulates proper perception of taste. Anorexia called as Aruchi In Ayurveda is a condition manifested due to affliction of gastro intestinal tract (amavaha srotas) in association with circulatory system (rasa vaha srotas). Tongue is the main site of manifestation. For normal perception of taste, bodhaka kapha (existing in mouth), prana vata (existing in head and neck) and samana vata (persisting in stomach) should have proper co-ordination. When this balance is altered due to the various causes ,anorexia is caused.
