Natural Ayurvedic Cure For Iron deficiency Anemia- Sickle cell, Pernicious, Aplastic, Myelodysplastic, Autoimmune


Natural Ayurvedic treatment For Anemia


Anemia is a condition caused due to the lower red blood cell count and hemoglobin levels. 


Patients diagnosed with this condition may choose to treat the condition with natural alternative ayurvedic herbs.[1]









The causes of anemia include a decreased production of red blood cells (RBCs) and hemoglobin. It may also occur due to the loss of RBCs and hemoglobin as a result of excessive bleeding.


Patients with mild anemia may not suffer from any noticeable symptoms. In severe cases, it may cause unusual tiredness, pallor of the skin and nails, fatigue, shortness of breath, and palpitations. Iron deficiency treatment in Ayurveda includes the use of herbs that help to restore the normal hemoglobin levels by stimulating the RBC production. These herbs also possess natural abilities to arrest abnormal blood loss thus preventing bleeding and anemia.


Hemoglobin plays an important role in the transport of oxygen to different cells and tissues of the body. It combines with oxygen and forms oxyhemoglobin. Oxygen is released by hemoglobin in the cells as the blood circulates through different organs. Hence, normal hemoglobin level is essential to ensure proper supply of oxygen to all the organs.  However, this function is hampered when the patients develop anemia.


Iron deficiency is a common cause of anemia as iron is a major component needed for the production of hemoglobin. Chronic blood loss or a deficiency of this mineral in a regular diet can reduce the iron levels in the blood and increase the risk of anemia. Hence, patients suffering from this illness are advised to increase their intake of natural iron by including foods rich in this mineral in their diet.


If anemia is not managed properly, the low hemoglobin levels may reduce the supply of oxygen to the vital tissues such as the heart and the brain. This can result in unpleasant symptoms such as chest pain, confusion, decline in cognitive functions and a reduced ability to focus. Patients suffering from these symptoms may opt to use the natural iron supplements to restore healthy hemoglobin levels and prevent the complications caused due to the low oxygen supply.


The reduced oxygen supply to the skin and hair leads to additional symptoms including hair loss, and the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines at an earlier age. Iron deficiency cure based on the concepts of Ayurveda is aimed at enhancing the general health of the patients and restoring the natural health and glow of the skin.


Natural Remedies to treat Aneamia with Ayurveda


Ayurveda also recommends a holistic treatment that involves the natural ways to increase iron intake by using herbs and making appropriate changes in the diet. This can provide long-term results for preventing anemia and iron deficiency.


The risk of anemia is higher in women due to the loss of blood through normal menstruation. Recurring internal bleeding from the colon or stomach due to disorders such as colon cancer or peptic ulcers are also the common causes of anemia. Ayurvedic treatment can help in healing anemia naturally by managing the root cause of the condition. The ayurvedic doctors at the Melbourne natural medicine clinic advise tests to determine the exact cause of anemia and prescribe herbs to eliminate the conditions responsible for it.


Aplastic anemia is a form of anemia caused due to the bone marrow failure. It results in an inadequate production of the red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets by the bone marrow.


Patients who suffer from anemias may seek the find out the best natural care for anemia based on the concepts of Ayurveda to improve the supply of Hb in th body and enhance the bone marrow functions and prevent the complications caused due to the low production of RBCs, WBCs, and platelets.


Natural Iron Supplements For Anemia


Natural iron supplements for anemia such as herbs having high iron content can help to manage this condition. A regular use of herbs for anemia is also recommended for the women who suffer from polymenorrhea and menorrhagia that result in an excessive blood loss during menstruation.

  • Amala: Amala is an effective herbal ayurvedic medicine for anemia caused due to the destruction of RBCs due to toxins, pollutants, and oxidative damage.


  • Punarnava: Autoimmune anemia can be managed well by using Punarnava that works by regulating the functions of the immune system.

  • 3+ years ago just before covid hit, I had sudden intolerance to a string of food predominantly gluten, cow's milk, egg and night shade vegetables. Energy was low and brain was foggy. I consulted and tried other treatments but minimal improvement. I was recommended to Drs Saini and Pooja by a friend who came out of her issues after ayurvedic treatments. Without hesitation, i consulted and started my ayurvedic journey 2+ years ago. It was the best decision I made. During those time, I had 2 sessions of panchakarma treatments. 2+ years later, I can now confidently say that I am able to incorporate gluten and cows milk products into my diet without any issue. My energy is back to normal and the other bonus for me is that unnecessary food cravings have diminished. I am very grateful and appreciated Drs Saini & Pooja's dedication and patient throughout my ayurvedic journey...

  • I had an absolute life changing experience with Taking an Ayurvedic approach for coming out of my son’s eczema. We were struggling with eczema and other skin concerns for my 4 year old almost since his birth. Had tried all sorts of creams available in the market but every time the flareups were coming back . It is only until Someone recommended us Dr. Gurnam Saini and we were put on Ayurvedic healing path. In 4-5 months his eczema started going away; some stubborn eczema spots disappeared with no flareups, itchiness . I will highly recommend Ayurvedic holistic healing over western medicines.

  • I have been struggling with IBS-C related gut issues for over 10 years, have been eating low fodmap for many years with no resolutions to my gut function. Recently I’ve been seeing Gurnam Saini (Ayurvedic Doctor) and in only one month of treatment with natural therapies I’ve seen outstanding results. Previously I was unable to digest foods properly/unable to have regular or efficient bowel movements (feeling very unwell due to this), back pain related to abdominal pain, having trouble sleeping and low energy. I’m currently one month into treatment and I never thought I’d be able to restore regular gut function, but I’m properly digesting foods, my sleep is phenomenal and I have a surge in energy, most importantly my mind feels clear and focused with no brain fog and I feel like myself again after years living with the stress of IBS. I’m going to start re-introducing foods in 6 months and have great faith in the knowledge and professionalism shown by Gurnam Saini and the team at Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic.

  • Three weeks after my first visit with Gurnam, I started noticing big differences in the symptoms that I was experiencing as a result of hormonal imbalance, anxiety & stress, sleeplessness, hair loss, diabetes and weight issues. The most noticeable change were my hot flushes. My constant hot flushes (approx every 20-30 minutes) were debilitating and driving me to the point where I was just not going out. I was constantly hot and not sleeping week at all. Within 3 weeks this changed to about 2 during the day and just general warmth overnight, which meant I was sleeping better and not having to get up and cool my face and wash my body before returning to bed. My anxiety levels have been reduced significantly, even though I have still been faced with stressful situations and the hair fall much less. The herbal tea that I make each morning and drink through the day keeps me full and is neutral tasting unlike other ‘tonics’ Ive tried before. I look forward to seeing Gurnam monthly to get my mix of Herbal treatments and feeling better with each visit. Thank you Gurnam 🙌🏽

  • I was suffering from headaches for the past 5-6 years which lasted more than a day. Sometimes it was so severe that I had nausea and vomiting. Tried a lot of medications but they did not help. Then I thought of trying Ayurveda as my last remedy. 2 months with Gurnam Saini and I have no headaches. My sleep has also improved. I’m still continuing to improve my overall health as the medicine seems to work for me. I will definitely recommend this place to everyone who wants to improve their overall health and well being.

  • Dr Saini has been so supportive in working with me to refine my mind, body and spirit to once again be able to consume gluten. Once I was diagnosed as gluten-intolerant, I thought I would never eat gluten again. But by embracing the ways of Ayurveda, I am now eating gluten on a daily basis that is pain free and discomfort free. Joseph Ferguson

  • Thank you Dr Saini for the remarkable improvement in my health since first seeing you only 3 months ago. With herbal supplements, herbal teas and a single panchakarma treatment I have already experienced the following benefits that western medicine had not been able to assist: * Lower blood pressure permitting a reduction in medication. * Reduced anxiety. * No dizziness or fainting following sudden exercise such as climbing stairs. * Eye floaters gone. * Persistent (2 year) cough almost gone. * Frequent reflux gone. With continued treatment and lifestyle changes I am looking forward to: * normal blood pressure without medication, * weight loss without strict diets, * cough gone!

  • I’ve had sinus problems my whole life, sneezing multiple times a day, always had a blocked nose and snoring quite bad. After my treatment with Dr Saini, my breathing is so much better, my nose is now unblocked and snoring has reduced dramatically. My sneezing has also reduced a lot. I recommend his treatments if you have similar issues

  • I started to get depressive mood and nightmares since diagnosed with varicocele and hydrocele. Specialist recommended me getting coil embolization to block the veins. I was hesitant with the idea of it and ignored his advice. I thought I would try with natural approach to deal with my health issues. After reading online I started to make healthy changes in my life-style and food regime e.g. avoiding inflammatory and junk food, energy drinks etc. Also reduced smoking and alcohol for 3 months. But my pain and swelling in the scrotal area did not improve. More over I started to get lack of libido, premature ejaculation and erectile difficulties. Due to that I started to remain frustrated and angry most of the time. My relationship with my family members, friends and partner started to get difficult. Finally came across Dr Saini ayurvedic medicine clinic in Melbourne. Had a detial consult with Dr Saini. His Ayurveda approach for varicocele and its related problem worked like magic for me. First month he modified my life-style and food, based on my ayurvedic makeup. He also introduced some his own blends of organic herbs and spices with daily breathing exercise. In second month I did panchakarma detoxification. Now there is no pain or swelling in my scrotal area. My manpower is back to normal (even better than earlier), having grounded emotions and sound sleep with best physical and mental health. I highly recommend everyone to follow ayurvedic life style and its natural way of healing your body. Dr Saini is best in his job.
