What are the Causes, Symptoms and Natural Remedies for Anemia?

If you’re feeling tired or weak, having trouble sleeping, and are unable to do even moderate exercise, Anemia could be the culprit. Here is what you should know about anemia and holistic ways to potentially deal with it.

What Is Anemia?

Anemia occurs when the number of red blood cells circulating in the body decreases. It is the most common blood disorder. There are different forms and symptoms of anemia. Some people suffer from conditions such as sickle cell anemia in which the shape of red blood cells is defective. And some are anemic from birth because their bodies genetically inherit difficulty in producing healthy red blood cells. It is important to determine the root cause of anemia to get the best possible cure for it.

Symptoms Of Anemia You Shouldn’t Neglect

People suffering from anemia may experience different symptoms. The main symptoms are as follows:

  • Feeling Dizzy

    Deficiency of iron or vitamin B12 causes a deficiency of a protein called hemoglobin. Hemoglobin gives the red colour to the red blood cells, and it’s important for the normal functioning of RBCs (Red Blood Cells). It also binds oxygen to the cells and carries it to all the body parts through the bloodstream. When iron is deficient, there is a deficiency of hemoglobin due to which all parts of the body do not receive enough oxygen. The result is that people suffering from anemia may feel out of breath easily and dizzy due to less supply of oxygen to the brain cells.

  • Feeling Weak & Tired

    The most common symptom of anemia is feeling weak and tired. There is a general feeling of exhaustion. Every individual may experience it differently. Tiredness is caused due to shortness of breath or dizziness which occurs due to less supply of oxygen to the brain cells, and body parts.

  • Pale Skin

    When there is a deficiency of red blood cells and your body parts do not get enough oxygen, your skin starts to look pale and unhealthy. This also happens due to an improper supply of oxygen and nutrients to the skin cells.

  • Pain In The Chest

    heart painWhen fewer red blood cells are circulating in the body, the heart has to work harder to pump the blood to all parts of the body. The heart starts beating faster than normal and you may feel stressed or pain in the chest. When your heart has to work harder, you may get irregular heartbeats, a heart murmur, or other heart problems. 

  • Cold Hands & Feet

    Some people may experience cold hands and feet than other body parts. This could be due to a deficiency of iron. This happens because there is a deficiency of healthy red blood cells in your body. Red blood cells supply nutrients and oxygen to all body parts and keep your body temperature normal. Thus, if you have a deficiency of RBCs, you may feel cold.

  • Strange Cravings

    Craving for unnatural things such as baking soda, clay, dried paint or ice cubes could possibly be the reason you are suffering from a deficiency of red blood cells.

  • Constant Headaches

    Headache - Sinusitis SymptomsHeadache is a common problem and it may occur due to stress, lack of sleep and other reasons. But, if you are getting regular headaches you should get your iron levels checked. The headaches may range from low-grade to severe. Therefore, it is better to go for a proper diagnosis to get the best therapy for migraine 

  • Cramping & Tingling In Fingers

    A deficient supply of oxygen to the limbs may cause cramping and tingling sensation. People with anemia may also feel a crawling sensation in the feet and legs. This may become worse at night.

 Causes Of Anemia

  • Long Term Blood Loss

    It is the most common cause of iron deficiency. It may occur due to heavy menstrual bleeding in women, peptic ulcer disease, colon cancer, uterine cancer and malignant tumors.

  • Poor Absorption Of Iron

    Iron deficiency also occurs when there is poor absorption of iron in the body or iron intake is deficient in the diet. Poor absorption may occur due to celiac disease.

  • Pregnancy

     Pregnant women may suffer from anemia especially when they fail to take proper iron during pregnancy. A pregnant woman needs more iron than a non-pregnant woman.

  • Poor Diet

    Diet deficient in vitamin B12 and folic acid is also an important cause of anemia in some people. It is mostly seen in young children.

Certain conditions reduce red blood cell production. This happens when there is inadequate stimulation of red blood cell production by the hormone erythropoietin. Health problems such as hypothyroidism can cause hormonal imbalance and this also reduces the capacity of the body to produce healthy red blood cells.

It is seen commonly in people suffering from chronic kidney disease. People with CKD develop anemia in early stages and it becomes worse as the disease progresses. Dysfunction of kidneys causes anemia.

Anemia is more commonly seen in children whose diet lacks proper iron intake and folate. It is also common in older people suffering from a wide range of health problems such as heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure. Blood donation is a good thing but frequent blood donation is not healthy for your body. It may also cause anemia. If you have any of these symptoms, you can consult our doctors right away.

Treatment for anemia

The treatment for anemia depends on the cause. In the conventional system, doctors only prescribe iron pills to fulfill the need of your body without addressing the root cause of the problem. In natural or alternative systems such as Ayurveda and Homeopathy, the root cause of the problem is identified that helps to give better results.  For anemia-related queries or help, you can visit our website www.biogetica.com or call +18005920304 to speak to our doctors for free.
