Anemia Herbal Remedies

Anemia is a condition in which you don't have enough healthy red blood cells to carry adequate oxygen to your tissues. Having anemia may make you feel tired and weak.

There are many forms of anemia, each with its own cause.  The most common are Vitamin B12 deficient anemia,  iron deficient anemia, and folic acid deficient anemia. Anemia can be temporary or long term, and it can range from mild to severe. There are so many different types’ of symptoms associated with anemia including weakness, fainting, heart palpitations, shortness of breath, lack of libido, ulcers, slow healing, fatigue, skin pallor, violent mood swings, irritability, confusion, depression, and seeing spots before the eyes. Secondary signs include vision problems, apathy, brittle nails, poor appetite, hair loss, yellowish skin, headaches, dark urine, and poor memory.

Many attribute anemia to a poor diet, low immunity, mineral deficiency, pregnancy, lupus, blood loss, parasites, excessive menstruation, infection, thyroid disease, lead toxicity, and alcoholism have been directly related to recorded cases of anemia. It is also said that excessive use of aspirin, ibuprofen, or other non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs may also attribute anemia.

Eating iron and manganese rich foods such as red meats, poultry, seafood (clams and mussels), spinach greens), molasses, beans (legumes), beets, brown rice, whole grains, eggs, grapes, raisons, pineapple, yams, and tofu can help. Try to avoid drinking coffee, tea, beer, or cola with meals because these drinks can inhibit the absorption of iron.

Try adding some potassium rich foods to your diet too which include broccoli, bananas, sunflower seeds, kiwi, and dried fruits should be eaten regularly. Adding cultured foods like yogurt to the diet helps replace friendly bacteria that is needed for good digestion.

Foods rich in vitamin C are also needed for iron absorption. Adding citrus, tomato, green pepper, and chives can be a benefit to anyone with suffering with anemia.

Three well known herbal remedies for treating anemia are green drinks, beet juice, and aloe-vera juice. Iron enhancing herbs include yellowdock, red raspberry leaf, gentian, barberry root bark, mullein, nettle, parsley, ginseng, watercress, bee pollen, bladderwrack, and dandelion.

Avoid foods and supplements that prevent iron absorption such as almonds, cashews, chocolate, kale, rhubarb, sorrel, spinach, Swiss chard, calcium, vitamin E, antacids, and zinc.
