Nature Cure For Anaemia
Anaemia is a condition where a person feels very weak, tired, unable to stand for long, feeling breathless, irritability, headache, palpitation, loss of appetite, looks very pale and in severe conditions one may even faints. This is because of low haemoglobin in our body. Anaemia is not a disease but can lead to one if not treated immediately and sometimes it may be the beginning of a disease. The main cause of this is malnutrition. Deficiency of iron, vitamin B-12 and folic acid leads to anaemic conditions. Especially pregnant women and small children are prone to iron deficiency and are recommended to take folic acid in the form of syrup or tablets. Besides this they are advised to take diet that is rich with iron and protien. Vegetables like spinach, fenugreek, carrot, beetroot etc. and fruits like apple, guava, pomagranade etc. and orange juice, tomato juice or soup etc. will definitely raise the hemoglobin levels in due course of time. Everybody should generally eat all types of fruits and vegetables, especially those which turn black on cutting with knife like apple etc. and whole gram sprouts to maintain good haemoglobin levels and to maintain good health. One should not neglect the symptoms of anaemia and should be treated early by taking the advice of a doctor, because if the condition gets worse, blood transfusion may be needed. The normal haemoglobin level for a male is 13.5 and for a woman it is 12.0, a person less than this count is considered to be anemic.
