Herbal Remedies for Anemia
Anemia is a deficiency of oxygen-carrying pigment hemoglobin or red blood cells in the blood. It is symptomatic of a number of metabolic and bodily imbalances.
Blood deficiency is a condition that is more comprehensive than the Western concept of anemia and relates to the health of the blood in general. The blood contains immune substances, hormones, carrier proteins, electrolytes, sugars, toxins and metabolic by-products, as well as iron, hemoglobin, and oxygen. A diagnosis of "blood deficiency" means that a number of important functions of the blood may be deficient. Anemia is often treated with chlorophyll-rich foods and herbs. Chlorophyll is the plant analogue to hemoglobin, and when the body has a good supply of chlorophyll, it produces hemoglobin more efficiently. An herbal program for general anemia or weak blood would include blood builders, digestive stimulants, and a good supply of dietary iron and magnesium.
