Home Remedies For Anemia

Are you suffering from anemia?

If you’re feeling fatigued or weak or are having trouble concentrating, you may be suffering from anemia.
Having anemia means your red blood cell count is low. Types and causes of anemia vary. Your doctor can do tests to diagnose anemia and determine the details, but there are things you can do at home, too.

Try these home remedies while you’re waiting for your doctor appointment or after you’ve consulted with a doctor and determined which remedy to combine with his advice.

Multivitamins and iron-rich food

A common cause of anemia is iron deficiency, so an easy way to combat anemia is to get more iron in your diet. If you’re not already taking a daily multivitamin, now is a good time to start. Make sure to read the label of the multivitamin to confirm that it contains iron, or check the label of the vitamin you’re already taking.

In addition to a multivitamin, eat iron-rich foods as part of your meals. Some great options are liver, oysters, spinach, kale and broccoli.

Eat plenty of these and you’ll also be adding protein and calcium to your diet. If you’re getting plenty of vitamin C from your multivitamin or foods, your body will be able to better absorb the iron. Get vitamin C from red bell peppers by adding them to your spinach salad or eat them plain, as a snack.
