Herbal Home Remedies for Anemia

Blood is an extremely complex substance that consists of a variety of liquid and solid elements, including red blood cells, white cells and platelets.

The average adult has between 5 and 6 quarts of blood circulating through his/her body by way of the blood vessels.

Anemia is a condition in which the blood lacks iron, which reduces the blood's ability to carry oxygen. This may make a person feel weak and listless.

To combat anemia, it's important to increase your consumption of iron-rich foods (like beef or spinach) and supplement with B vitamins and minerals like copper.

To help circulation as well as purification of the blood and aid in elimination of iron­deficiency anemia, we offer suggestions with the suggestion that you first have appropriate professional blood tests performed. And always consult with a physician before embarking on any self-help program.

  • Grape juice (no sugar or preservatives. added) is a wonderful source of iron. Drink 8 ounces every day.
  • Soak 10 currants overnight. Remove seeds and have for 3-4 weeks and have first thing in the morning .
  • Eat raw spinach salads often. Be sure to wash the spinach thoroughly. Combine any of the following in your spinach salad-water­cress, radish, kohlrabi, garlic, chives, leek and onion. They're all high in iron.
  • Daily intake of 3-4 pieces of dry figs helps in curing anemia.
  • Every morning after breakfast and every evening after dinner, eat two dried apricots.
  • Snack on raisins.
  • Beet juice is the best anemia remedy.
  • Try to cook in iron pots; it is proven that doing it can significantly increases the amount of iron in your foods.
  • Honey-It is very good for an anemic person because it helps increase the haemoglobin in the blood. It is rich in iron, copper and manganese.

NOTE: In the case of a serious iron deficiency, you may require more iron than you can possibly get from any or all of these remedies. We suggest you seek help from a health professional.
