Home Remedies for anemia


The term ‘anemia’ means lack of red blood corpuscles or of hemoglobin. Oxygen is very important for the maintenance and functioning of body cells, and this oxygen is carried from the lungs to different parts of the body through the red blood corpuscles. When there is a deficiency of hemoglobin or red blood corpuscles (RBC), the patient suffers from weakness and palpitations even after a non-strenuous work. There is evident paleness in the face as well as other parts of the body.
Home Remedies for anemia

2) Take a tsp of the powder of the dried root of banana with milk twice a day.
3 Due to the iron rich content of fig (Anjeer), it is ideal to include it in ones diet in anemia.
4) Add amla (gooseberry) juice and honey to sugarcane juice and drink everyday to ward off anemia.
5) Raisins with sugar or honey consumed twice a day cures anemia.
6) Make a decoction with a tsp of liquorice(‘Mulhati’ in Hindi and ‘Jeshtamadhu’ in Kannada) powder and water and drink twice a day with some honey .
7) Including sugarcane juice and apples in your diet is also helpful in anemia.

    Anemia can be quite dangerous and fatal if not taken care. Since red blood cells are absent, oxygen is not delivered to the body tissues which may cause serious problems in the future
    Since, lack of nutrients is one of the main causes of anemia, it is very important to have a healthy meal which is rich in iron, calcium, proteins and other various vital nutrients. Vitamin B12 is an effective anemia home remedy should be consumed on an everyday basis. Vitamin B12 helps in increasing the formation of red blood cells and helps cure anemia at a fast pace

    Bananas are a great source of vitamin B12 and at least four should be consumed all throughout the day. Red meat or white meat should be eaten on a daily basis as they contain maximum amounts of vitamin B12. Iron deficiency is another main cause of anemia. Fish, eggs, raisins, apricots, apples and carrots among many others contain high levels of iron and should be consumed on a regular basis.

    Anemia may cause general weakness, loss of appetite, dizziness, headaches due to the iron deficiency in the blood. Leafy green vegetable juices like spinach juice prevents or reverses iron deficiency and the chlorophyll helps combat fatigue. Spirulina in this juice provides a valuable burst of Vitamin B12.

    See if your doctor can order iron treatments for you. You will get it through an IV. Sound like you can't absorb it, but through an IV, it goes directly in the bloodstream.

    Anaemia is a condition which occurs when you have an abnormally low amount of red blood cells. Red blood cells contain haemoglobin, a red pigment which gives blood its colour. The job of haemoglobin is to carry oxygen around the body. When red blood cells and therefore haemoglobin are low the blood fails to supply the body's tissues with sufficient amounts of oxygen. As your lungs and heart will then have to work harder to get oxygen into the blood, symptoms of anaemia, such as difficulty in breathing will begin to develop.

As your lungs and heart will then have to work harder to get oxygen into the blood, symptoms of anaemia, such as difficulty in breathing will begin to develop.

    As anaemia causes a shortage of oxygen, the main symptom is usually chronic tiredness and palpitations. Other symptoms you may get could include:

    * Pale appearance
    * Shortness of breath and dizziness
    * Fainting
    * Angina
    * A red, sore tongue and a reduced sense of taste, this is usually only a symptom with folic acid and vitamin B12 deficiency anaemia.

    If anaemia is left untreated your symptoms will get worse and you may become very tired and weak, you may also develop angina or suffer with leg pains when walking. The body's ability to fight infection may also be weakened so you may find you pick up infections more easily.
