Homeopathic remedies for Anemia
Anemia is not in itself a disease, it just gives an indication towards various medical conditions associated with diseases. Anemia refers to a reduction of red blood cell count or decreased haemoglobin level. Since the red cell production is reduced or the red blood cells are destroyed at a high rate, the end result is weakness, fatigue and various other symptoms. Homeopathic remedies provides a complete cure for anemia. The natural homeopathic medicines are free from any side effects and are very effective in the treatment of anemia.

Various causes and types of anemia
Haemorrhage: after accidental trauma, heavy bleeding during periods in women or bleeding during childbirth, bleeding in medical conditions like gastric ulcers, inflammatory bowel disease, cancer of gut, parasitic manifestation in gut-like hook worm, schistosomiasis.

Iron deficiency: iron deficiency anemia is common during pregnancy and lactation and from acute haemorrhage or chronic blood loss. The cause is either a decreased intake of iron rich diet or impaired absorption of iron in the gut.

Deficiency of vitamin b12 or folic acid: it leads to megaloblastic anemia.

Pernicious anemia: this type of anemia arises from an autoimmune disorder where there is atrophy of gastric mucosa with the resultant decrease in parietal cells and intrinsic factor produced by these cells. Intrinsic factor is required to absorb vitamin b12. So, in pernicious anemia, defective absorption of vitamin b12 is the cause and not its nutritional deficiency.

Haemolytic anemia: it is a result of destruction of red blood cells as in malaria, and abnormal red blood cells prone to breakage as in sickle cell anemia.

Thallasemia: an inherited disorder in which the haemoglobin production is impaired.

Symptoms of anemia
Pallor; weakness or fatigue; vertigo; mouth soreness; difficulty in breathing or shortness of breath; palpitation; jaundice in haemolytic anemia; koilonychia (spoon-shaped nails) in iron deficiency anemia; pica (desire to eat strange indigestible things including chalk, clay, lime, dry rice, etc) in iron deficiency anemia; gastric symptoms (like diarrhoea, nausea and vomiting); tingling and numbness of limbs in pernicious anemia.[toc]

Natural homeopathic treatment for anemia
The homeopathic mode of treatment, with the use of medicines made of natural substances, is very effective in treating anemia. There is no specific homeopathic remedies for anemia. The medicines are solely selected on the basis of individual symptoms.

Anemia - How Can Homeopathy Handle It?

In this fast-moving world, everyone is so busy that it's hard to take self-care. People give less importance to what they eat, when they sleep and so on. Conditions such as anaemia have become very common, and we still neglect knowingly and unknowingly. You tend to find quick alternatives. Homoeopathy is the alternative for such a condition.

Understand AnemiaIf hemoglobin (that carries oxygen throughout the body) count is less in red blood cells, such condition is known as anaemia. Body doesn't receive enough oxygen, thereby leading to weakness and fatigue. Anaemia can affect all age groups; from kids to elders.

Apart from poor diet, certain anaemic conditions could be hereditary, which are beyond one's control. Women who are of childbearing age tend to be anaemic due to menstruation.

Causes and Types:

  • Accidental blood loss, child birth or medical conditions such as gastric ulcer lead to haemorrhage, which ultimately leads to anaemia.
  • Iron deficiency during pregnancy, poor diet or haemorrhage may cause anaemia
  • Megaloblastic anaemia occurs due to deficiency of Vitamin B12 (Folic Acid).
  • Pernicious anaemia occurs due to autoimmune disorder. One is unable to absorb Vitamin B12 adequately.
  • Hemolytic anaemia is caused to the destruction of red blood cells during ill health conditions such as in malaria or due to irregular red blood cells such as in Sickle-Cell Anemia.
  • In a condition where haemoglobin production is impaired due to hereditary disorder, it is called Thallasemia.

Homeopathic Remedy:
There are numerous homeopathic treatments available for anaemia.

  1. Aletris Farinosa is mainly given to women who are extremely weak and feel tired. Such patients always feel tired with minimal energy levels. Vertigo and fainting are quite common. Facial skin looks pale.
  2. Cinchona is the best for one who experiences excessive bleeding. Bleeding could be due to traumatic injury, periods and so on. The person is usually tired and faints quite often. China is used to control haemorrhage as well as improves blood quantity after bleeding episodes.
  3. Cinchona also helps to treat anaemia due to blood loss.
  4. Ferrum Metallicum is considered to be the best homeopathic medicine for anaemia.
  5. Natrum Mur helps to treat anaemia due to grief. Reasons could be personal tragedy or any other circumstance. The condition worsens due to heat. One tends to ingest more of salt content food.
  6. Nit-acid-One is given to anaemic persons who have a desire to eat chalk, paper and earth.

Besides these treatments, eat iron-rich food and have a regular blood check-up at least once in six months.

Anemia Mukt Bharat!

Anemia Mukt Bharat!

This year's pledge on dietetics day is anemia mukt bharat. Spread this msg to all

Anemia happens when your body doesn't have enough red blood cells. The condition is mainly caused by blood loss, the destruction of red blood cells, or your body's inability to create enough red blood cells.

There are many types of anemia. The most common type is iron deficiency anemia. Red blood cells contain a protein called hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is full of iron. Without sufficient iron, your body can't make the hemoglobin it needs to create enough red blood cells to deliver oxygen-rich blood throughout your body.

A lack of folate and vitamin b-12 may also impact your body's ability to made red blood cells. If your body can't process b-12 properly, you may develop pernicious anemia. A diet that is rich in iron and b vitamins like the plan below is important if you are anemic. Be sure to talk to your doctor about supplements as well.

Anemia treatment plans often include dietary changes. The best diet plan for anemia includes foods rich in iron and other vitamins essential to hemoglobin and red blood cell production. It should also include foods that help your body absorb iron better.

There are two types of iron in foods: heme iron and nonheme iron. Heme iron is found in meat, poultry, and seafood. Nonheme iron is found in plant foods and foods fortified with iron. Your body can absorb both types, of iron.

Although anemia treatment plans are individualized, most require 150 to 200 milligrams of iron daily. It's hard to get these levels through diet alone. You may also need to take prescription iron or an over-the-counter iron supplement until your levels are replenished.

Add these foods to your diet to get more iron and help fight iron deficiency anemia:

1. Leafy greens


Leafy greens, especially dark ones, are among the best sources of nonheme iron. They include:

  1. Spinach
  2. Kale
  3. Collard greens
  4. Dandelion greens
  5. Swiss chard

Some leafy greens such as Swiss chard and collard greens also contain folate. A diet low in folate may cause folate-deficiency anemia. Citrus fruits, beans, and whole grains are good sources of folate.

When eating dark, leafy greens for iron, there's a catch. Some greens that are high in iron, such as spinach and kale, are also high in oxalates. Oxalates are compounds that prevent the absorption of nonheme iron. So, while it's beneficial to eat your greens as part of an overall anemia diet, don't depend on them solely to treat the condition.

Vitamin c helps your stomach absorb iron. Eating leafy greens with foods that contain vitamin c such as oranges, red peppers, and strawberries may increase iron absorption. Some greens are good sources of both iron and vitamin c.

2. Meat and poultry

All meat and poultry contain heme iron. Red meat, lamb, and venison are the best sources. Poultry and chicken have lower amounts. Eating meat or poultry with nonheme iron foods, such as leafy greens, can increase iron absorption.

3. Liver

Many people shy away from organ meats, but they're a great source of iron. Liver is arguably the most popular organ meat. It's rich in iron and folate. 

4. Seafood

Some seafood provides heme iron. Shellfish such as oysters, clams, and shrimp are good sources. Most fish contain iron. Fish high in iron include:

  • Sardines, canned in oil
  • Canned or fresh tuna
  • Fresh salmon


Although both fresh and canned salmon are good sources of iron, canned salmon is high in calcium. Calcium binds with iron and reduces its absorption. Foods high in calcium shouldn't be eaten at the same time as iron-rich foods. Other examples of calcium-rich foods include:

5. Fortified foods
Many foods are fortified with iron. Add these foods to your diet if you're a vegetarian or struggle to eat other sources of iron:
 

  • Fortified, ready-to-eat cereals
  • Foods made from fortified refined flour such as white bread
  • Fortified pasta
  • Foods made from fortified cornmeal
  • Fortified white rice


6. Beans
Beans are good sources of iron for vegetarians and meat eaters alike. They're also inexpensive and versatile. Some iron-rich options are:


7. Nuts and seeds
Many types of nuts and seeds are good sources of iron. They taste great on their own or sprinkled on salads or yogurt. When choosing nuts and seeds, choose raw varieties whenever possible. Some nuts and seeds that contain iron are:


Almonds are also a good source of iron. They're great as part of a healthy eating plan, but since they're also high in calcium, they may not increase your iron levels that much.

Remember these guidelines:

  • Don't eat iron-rich foods with foods or beverages that block iron absorption. These include coffee or tea, eggs, foods high in oxalates, and foods high in calcium.
  • Eat iron-rich foods with vitamin c-rich foods, such as oranges, tomatoes, or strawberries, to improve absorption.
  • Eat iron-rich foods with foods that contain beta carotene, such as apricots, red peppers, and beets, to improve absorption.
  • Eat a variety of heme and nonheme iron foods throughout the day to up your iron intake.
  • Eat heme and nonheme iron foods together whenever possible to increase iron absorption.
  • Add foods rich in folate and vitamin b-12 to support red blood cell production.
