Do yall have any kind of herbs that makes your hips, thighs, and butt bigger? I am in need for that -- too skinny.



Well, that depends. What is the underlying cause for your lack of weight gain? How is your thyroid, your nervous system, your digestive system, your adrenal function, your liver function? If any or all of these are burning "hot", then it can be difficult to gain weight. If your thyroid is hot, herbs such as lemon balm or bugleweed can be helpful. For hot adrenal function herbs such as ginseng, ganoderma mushrooms, or nettle seed would be indicated. If our digestive system is hot, then cooling bitters such a dandelion, gentian or yellow dock would be indicated. For a hot nervous system, herbs such as wild lettuce, wood betony or catnip would be indicated. I suspect it is likely a multi-system issue and as such a combination of the above herbs would be indicated. I suggest your consult with a local herbal practitioner for a plan specific to your needs.
