Don’t have an appetite? Don’t have much (or any) interest in eating?
Biologically, we have to eat to get nutrition into us so that we can build and maintain bodily tissues. No food = no nutrition = no resources to supply the body with what it needs. You can see where this is a problem. (Now I’m not talking about doing a planned fast; I’m talking about having no interest in eating.)
We are, of course, biologically driven to eat, to take in nourishment. Our physiology demands it. So when we experience little or no desire to eat (for more than, say, a day), pay attention.
There are many reasons why this may be so, but I would be willing to bet that stress is going to be a factor. So, let’s look at that.
The three Ayurvedic doshas of Vata, Pitta, and Kapha all handle/process stress differently. Accordingly, we give different recommendations, depending on which constitution is at play (as well as any mitigating factors).
