What is Anemia and how is it caused?

When the amount of Red Blood Cells in your blood declines to an alarming level, it results in anemia. Normally around 1% of RBCs are replaced everyday, with their average lifespan being around 100 to 120 days. Any process that upsets this balance between the production and destruction of RBCs causes anemia. Since red blood cells are responsible for circulating oxygen throughout the body, a low count of RBC indicates decreased oxygen supply to organs.

One of the most common dietary causes of anemia includes a deficiency of iron in one’s daily diet. However, there are other causes that are related to both decrease in RBC production and increase in RBC destruction.

Let us now look at the different types, symptoms and causes of anemia below and see the solutions offered by homeopathy for anemia treatment .
