Anaemia - 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.

  • 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.

McDowell's Herbal Practice recommends:

  • Anaemia General Mix: Elecampane, Nettle, Red Clover, Broom, Echinacea, Sage, Rue, Elecampane and Yarrow. Added to this are the Bach Flower Remedies Wild Rose, Pine, and Olive.
  • This mix contains herbs which will safely assist with all the processes listed above (with the exception of the exercise). You can help further by drinking Rosehips Tea and eating some red meat and plenty of green vegetables.

Please consult your Herbalist if, after a course of 3 to 6 months on the mix and with better habits, the symptoms return after stopping the mix. There will be other issues which need specific attention.
