Getting extremely thin
My grandfather's health has reduced drastically. He has no fat left in body. Bones are visible and veins, he looks very weak. My grandma passed away 3 years ago, after that his body has become very weak. He takes proper food though. He doesn't have any major illness. But his BP doesn't remain fine so he take some medication for bp (rosulip, olsar, geripod). He had some problem in palm, it used to shiver. So he is taking some medication for that also (syndopa, rasalect). Rest everything is fine. He has always adopted a fit lifestyle and diet also. But within last three years, his health is getting drastically down and he looks extremely weak and skinny. Please help doctor.

Give him Ashwagandha rasayana two tsf twice a day. Milk and milk products are also good. Banana,papaya are super foods. Cooked vegetable soup is fine. Gruel is also best.
