Natural Home Remedies for Anemia

Anemia may be defined as a condition in which there is a decrease in the quantity of hemoglobin or in the number of red
cells. Anaemia is among the most common ailments affecting human beings.





Nearly half the blood flowing in our veins and arteries consists of red blood cells which carry oxygen to the tissues.
Approximately one trillion or 100 million new blood cells are formed daily in the bone marrow. The raw materials required in
the production of these cells are iron, proteins, and vitamins, especially folic acid and B12. Of these, iron and proteins are
essential in building up the red colorings matter called hemoglobin.





A red cell has a lifespan of approximately one hundred and twenty days and is then destroyed and replaced. Each person
should have about 15 gm of hemoglobin per 100 ml of blood, and a blood count of approximately five million red cells per
millimeter of blood.
The patient usually complains of weakness, fatigue, lack of energy, and dizziness. Other symptoms include a haggard look,
premature wrinkles, dull and tired looking eyes, poor memory, shortness of breath on exertion, headache, slow healing of
wounds, and palpitations. The skin and mucous membranes look pale.

A diminished formation of red blood cells in the bone marrow, either due to defects in the bone marrow, or due to an
inadequate intake of iron, vitamins, and proteins, is one of the main causes of anaemia. Other important causes are heavy
loss of blood due to injury, bleeding piles, or excessive menstruation in women. Anaemia can also occur due to a lack of
hydrochloric acid in the stomach, which is needed for digestion of iron and proteins, or Intestinal parasites or worms.
Hookworms, pin worms, round worms and tape worms feed on the supply of blood as well as on the vitamins.

Remedies for Anemia  with Fenugreek
The leaves of fenugreek help in blood formation. The cooked leaves should be taken by adolescent girls to prevent anaemia,
which may occur due to the onset of puberty and menstruation. The seeds of fenugreek are also a valuable cure for anaemia,

Anemia Home Remedies with Soya beans
Soya beans is rich in iron and also has a high protein value. As most anaemic patients usually also suffer from a weak
digestion, it should be given to them in a very light form, preferably in the form of milk, which can be easily digested.

Anemia Home Remedies with Lettuce
Lettuce is another effective remedy for this ailment as it contains a considerable amount of iron. It can, therefore, be used as
a good tonic food for anaemia. The iron in it is easily absorbed by the body.
Spinach: This leafy vegetable is a valuable source of high grade iron. After its absorption, it helps in the formation of
hemoglobin and red blood cells. It is thus beneficial in building up the blood, and in the prevention and treatment of anaemia.

Anemia Remedies with Vitamin B12
Vitamin B12 is needed for preventing or curing anaemia. This vitamin is usually found in animal protein, especially in meats
such as kidney and liver. There are, however, other equally good sources of vitamin B12 such as dairy products which also
contain some B12.

Beets are very helpful in curing anaemia. Beet juice contains potassium, phosphorus, calcium, sulphur, iodine, iron, copper,
carbohydrates, protein, fat, vitamins B1, B2, B6, niacin, and vitamin P. With their high iron content, beets help in the formation
of red blood cells. The juice of red heel strengthens the body's powers of resistance and has proved to be an excellent remedy
for anaemia, especially for children and teenagers, where oilier blood-fanning remedies have failed.

Black sesame seeds, as a rich source of iron, are valuable in anaemia. After soaking one teaspoon of the seeds in warm water
for a couple of hours, they should be ground and strained, and then mixed with a cup of milk and sweetened with jaggery or
sugar. This emulsion should be given to patients suffering from anaemia.

Remedies for Anemia Using Almonds:
Almonds contain copper to the extent of 1.15 mg per 100 gm. The copper along with iron and vitamins, acts as a catalyst in
the synthesis of hemoglobin. Almonds are, therefore, a useful remedy for anaemia. Seven almonds should be soaked in water
for about two hours and ground into a paste after removing the thin red skin. This paste may be eaten once daily in the
morning for three months.
