Seems to be a case of Anorexia nervosa. Mx., Treat initially the depression through satvavajaya chikitsa. Anti depressants herbs like tagar,ashvagand be given along with manasa mitra vatakam. Symptomatic relief be provided with suitable antacids, in case if he presents with urdhvagata amlapitta. With regards to the constipation, it may be even due to IBS, hence you can advice a simple remedy of Shunti with panchalavana partaken with takra, which will take care of the agni, bowel movement both together at the same time.

ताप्तादि लौह 4 रत्ती शहद में मिलाकर सुबह-शाम सेवन कराएं। कुमारियासव द्राक्षासव दोनों को मिलाकर 25 ग्राम सुबह-शाम खाने से पहले दें। निश्चित रूप से लाभ होगा। योग परिक्षित है। पिछले 40 वर्ष से प्रयोग कर रहा हूं।
