Ayurveda is a boon for those with iron deficiency. The say-to-do tricks, mediations, and therapies can help you deal with iron deficiencies. Here, Dr. Vaishali Sawant Chavan, Ayurveda expert and Asst Medical Director, Vedicure Healthcare and Wellness, tells you more about the benefits of Ayurveda when it comes to managing iron deficiencies. Read and opt for it right away!
Did you know? Iron deficiency occurs when the body lacks the vital mineral iron. The causes of iron deficiency are low iron intake, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), blood loss because of heavy periods, or even internal bleeding. The symptoms of iron deficiency are shortness of breath, tiredness, paleness, headaches, dizziness, dry damaged hair and skin, swelling of the tongue, heart palpitation, and brittle nails. The body needs iron to make haemoglobin, which is a protein present in red blood cells enabling the cells to carry oxygen throughout the body. If the haemoglobin is low in the body, then the tissues and muscles won't get enough oxygen to be able to function effectively and this can be termed anaemia.
Are you aware? Anaemia imbalances the Agni of the body. Anaemia is called PANDU in Ayurveda. It can drop your haemoglobin count too. You will be shocked to know that not treating anaemia on time can lead to complications that impact the heart and the lungs. But now you don't have to worry as Ayurveda is the remedy to your problem.
Ayurveda plays a pivotal role in the prevention of such diseases and the promotion of health. It is the ancient Indian system of natural and holistic medicine that can help one improve the quality of life. Those opting for this alternative treatment option will be able to fight the disease naturally.
Takeaway: You will have to take Ayurvedic treatment from a certified practitioner only. He/she will examine you thoroughly and then only recommend medicines or therapies.
