Anaemia and what to do - McDowell's Herbal Treatments

Anaemia is generally taken to mean a lack of iron in red blood cells due to an inadequate diet, or an incident involving major blood loss. However it really reflects a lack of oxygen in the blood, which can be a result of a number of factors...

Some causes of anaemia

  • Lack of iron in the diet.
  • Poor absorption of the iron from your food.
  • Inefficient bone marrow production of red blood cells.
  • Inefficiencies in the spleen, which is responsible for monitoring red blood cell quality.
  • Poor and shallow breathing habits which can be in turn related to posture or lack of aerobic exercise.
  • Fragile blood vessel walls which leak oxygenated blood and iron.

Western mainstream medicine prescribes Iron supplements as the treatment for anaemia, the problem being that the human body has trouble absorbing most forms of iron supplements in tablet form. There can be some issues with constipation and excess blood iron levels.
