Got Anemia? Use These Dietary Recommendations to Fight It!

Anemia is a condition where the creation of haemoglobin is not enough. Mentioned within are a few dietary pieces of advice that can help.

  • Have a balanced diet

  • Consume fresh fruits and vegetables

  • Cool off the body regularly

  • Avoid beverages like tea and coffee

Anaemia, according to Ayurveda, is named as the Pandu roga. It is connected to the pachaka sub-dosha of the pitta. Pachaka is responsible for the proper assimilation of the digested food. This results in insufficient rakhta dhatus in the body. That’s why, having food that promotes the formation of haemoglobin is highly recommended.

A few dietary recommendations that anyone suffering from Anemia should follow are as follows:

  • Eat a well-balanced diet, rich in iron and proteins, with ample intake of fresh fruits and vegetables.

  • Include in your diet herbs (like methi seeds and amla), fruits (like pomegranate and apples), and green leafy vegetables (like lettuce, spinach and radish).

  • It is important to pacify pitta as it is connected to the rakhta dhatu. Increase the intake of ghee, it pacifies the pitta and vata dosha by removing heat and dryness. It also eases digestion and nourishes the tissues

  • Avoid beverages like tea and coffee. It interferes with the absorption of iron from food

  • Keep drinking water in a tamra (copper) vessel overnight. Drink it early in the morning on an empty stomach. It helps in pacifying vata and kapha

  • Soak sesame seeds (til) in warm water. Prepare a paste and mix a tsp with honey. Mix it with a warm glass of milk and have it daily.

  • Mix a tsp of turmeric (haldi) in a bowl of yogurt. Consume on an empty stomach before breakfast. For people with kapha imbalance, eat this at noon.

  • Cool your body regularly. Coconut water in the morning or a lukewarm milk at bedtime are recommended.
