Anemia is known as Pandu roga in Ayurveda and is characterised as a disease where the rakta dhatu (the haemoglobin in the blood) falls below the normal level. Ayurveda finds the roots of anemia in the imbalance of Agni. This imbalance leads to the formation of ama, which circulates pitta around the body.

One will be surprised by how much simple lifestyle changes can help reduce the symptoms of anemia and stimulate the production of rakta dhatu. Listed below are a few simple tips that you can incorporate in your daily routine:

  • Proper nutrition is essential for good health. Maintain a balanced diet which is iron centric and exercise lightly. Your body could make the need for iron higher. Cooking in iron pots and pans is highly recommended.

  • Sitting in the morning sun has proven to stimulate the production of red blood cells. It effectively acts as a natural remedy for anemia.

  • Agni (The digestive fire) should be stimulated in order to facilitate proper digestion, high metabolism, and better absorption

  • Bowel movements affect the body’s functioning. Irregular bowel movements and constipation worsens anemia. Take natural laxative such as Isabgol and Dandelion root tea to alleviate any such issues.

  • Take ample amount of rest whenever you feel like you need it. Avoid stressing too much as it hinders the working of Agni. Avoid smoking, drinking and doing drugs.
