The Fundamentals

In general terms, anemia is a reduced number of circulating red blood cells per cubic millimeter. When hemoglobin content is less than what is required to oxygenate the body, anemia may be diagnosed. It may result from excessive blood loss due to hemorrhage, from decreased blood cell formation, iron deficiency, and loss of bone marrow or bone marrow failure, called aplastic anemia. While anemia is not a disease in and of itself, it is a symptom of various diseases. Some symptoms include slight fever, gastrointestinal disturbances, tachycardia, headache, dizziness, palpitation, dyspnea, drowsiness, sore tongue, and pallor to the skin and nailbeds of the fingers.

Understanding Anemia

n estimated 18 million people in the United States are iron deficient, causing anemia to some degree. Just as there are many different causes of anemia, there are a variety of types of anemia. Before any treatment is begun, the type of anemia needs to be determined. Iron-deficiency anemia, the most common type and what is focused on here, may be corrected simply by supplementing iron in the diet. One effective alternative to medicine is Stinging Nettles, rich in iron, which the body is lacking, and vitamin C, which helps ensure that the iron is absorbed properly. Also having a high iron content is Yellow Dock, used for many years in the treatment of anemia. As a blood purifier, Dong Quai may also be helpful, as well as Siberian Ginseng, which detoxifies the blood.
