Hi, Welcome to Health care magic forum.
The habit usually present in anemic, and deficient of vitamin people.
The worms in the intestines also causes the eating of raw rice, clay, slate pencils, etc.
I advise you to consult a physician for diagnosis and treatment.
I usually prescribe to my patient with such symptoms albendazole, iron supplements, vitamin supplements,and protein supplements.
Take more of green leafy vegetables, pulses, sprouts, and protein rich foods,to cope with the deficiencies.
Wishing for a quick and complete recovery. Thank you.
I find this answer helpful
