Anemia is a disorder that results from having a lower than normal red blood cell count or not enough hemoglobin. Basically, if you're suffering from anaemia you’re body is not receiving enough oxygen-rich blood. Anemia is quite a common condition, particularly in females and people with chronic diseases. According to the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, this condition affects more than 3 million Americans.
Heavy blood loss during menstruation, pregnancy, intestinal disorders, bleeding disorders, ulcers, infections, and chronic diseases such as cancer, rheumatoid arthritis or other autoimmune diseases, kidney disease, liver disease, thyroid disease, and inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn disease or ulcerative colitis) are a few of the most common causes of anaemia. However, a deficiency of iron, zinc, copper, magnesium, manganese, folic acid and vitamin B12 is the root cause of this problem in nearly all cases. All of these nutrients are crucial for the maintenance of healthy red blood cells and hemoglobin production.
Some of the symptoms of anemia include…
• Shortness of breath
• Rapid or irregular heartbeat
• Pounding in ears
• Cold hands and/or feet
• Regular headaches
• Pale or yellow skin (a common sign)
• Chest pain
• Cognitive problems (brain fog, difficulty concentrating, etc)
Contrary to what you may believe or have been told, treating anemia is actually quite simple - replace the lost nutrients listed above and you will cure your anemia. Guaranteed.
So here’s 7 of the most effective ways to do this…
Home Remedy for Anemia #1… Unsulphured Black Strap Molasses (BSM): Black strap molasses is a nutritional powerhouse. It contains all of the essential nutrients required for increasing red blood cell production and boosting hemoglobin levels including magnesium, zinc, copper, manganese, folate, and B group vitamins. Black strap molasses is especially rich in a safe and highly absorbable form of iron. In fact, a tablespoon of BSM supplies around 15% of your daily iron needs. If you’re suffering from anemia, black strap molasses should definitely be your first “go to” remedy.
Simply mix a tablespoon of organic unsulphured black strap molasses (such as these ones
) in a glass of warm filtered water and drink down once dissolved. Do this twice daily on an empty stomach for 3 months then drop down to once a day and stay on this amount indefinitely (yes, for the rest of your life). Remember this… continuing to take your BSM every day is crucial if you want to treat and cure your anemia for good.
Black strap molasses is also 100% safe for everyone to take (adults and kids), regardless of what health problems you may be suffering from. Even pregnant women and nursing mothers can safely take it without harm. BSM is truly a wonder food, so make sure you get some into you as soon as you can!
How to Get Rid of Anemia Cure #2… Wheat Grass Powder: Organic wheat grass powder contains chlorophyll, the life sustaining green pigment in plants. On a molecular level, chlorophyll is virtually identical to our own red blood cells or hemoglobin, so much so that during the Second World War chlorophyll (combined with coconut water) was used for blood transfusions in soldiers and actually saved a whole lot of lives!
The oxygen-carrying capacity of the blood can be enhanced significantly by taking chlorophyll every day, so of course, it’s a wonderful solution for anemia or for those with compromised red blood cell production.
One of the best sources of chlorophyll is wheat grass powder or the juice. In fact, the Hippocrates Health Institute says… “Wheatgrass Juice is one of the best sources of living chlorophyll available.”(1
So to get your daily intake of wheat grass, either grow your own and juice it every day or add 2 rounded teaspoons of organic wheat grass juice powder
to a glass of clean filtered water and drink down. For best results,
be sure to take your wheat grass on an empty stomach, 15-20 minutes before food.
Natural Remedy for Anemia #3… Pumpkin Seeds/Pepitas: Pumpkin seeds or pepitas are a simple yet very effective remedy and treatment for anemia. Pumpkin seeds contain 110% of the recommended intake of your daily iron, as well as being a rich source of zinc, magnesium, manganese, copper, B vitamins, and vitamin E. Pepitas also taste great, so eating them shouldn't be a problem. Either snack on a handful of pumpkin seeds each day or add them to your morning cereal. I find them quite addictive so it pays to keep them to only a handful!
Home Remedy for Anaemia #4… Beetroot: This healthy vegetable is also an exceptional treatment and cure for anemia. Beetroot is high in iron, along with calcium, magnesium, potassium, sulphur and essential vitamins. It’s a powerful detoxifier and internal cleanser, including a blood cleanser, so it’s terrific for increasing the body’s red blood cell count and increasing oxygen levels in the blood. Don’t buy the tinned beetroot though. Only consume fresh beetroot either baked and used in a salad or eaten along with other vegetables. Making your own home-made beet kvass or adding some fresh beetroot to a morning smoothie are two other great ways to get this important vegetable into you.

Natural Cure for Anemia #5… Probiotics: Without a healthy functioning gut, none of the essential nutrients and cleansing agents you need to cure your anemia can be absorbed and utilized by the body. The result is, well, no result - you’re anemia will stay. A study out of Stanford University School of Medicine found that when people supplemented with probiotics, their iron and B level vitamins went up, quite substantially in fact.(2
So to get your digestive system healthy and in tip top condition it’s imperative that you ingest plenty of good gut bacteria or probiotics. Taking a good quality daily probiotic supplement (like these
) is crucial, along with culturing and fermenting your own healthy probiotic rich foods. Sauerkraut, yogurt, kefir, miso, kombucha, pickles, tempeh, natto and kimchi are all excellent probiotic rich foods that you can easily make yourself at home.

Home Remedy for Anemia #6… Eat Healthy: Consuming natural foods that are high in iron and other essential nutrients is a sure-fire way to get rid of your anemia fast. Spinach, pomegranates, sesame seeds, nuts, dates, bananas, apples, blackcurrants, squash, kale, chard, along with beef and chicken liver and grass-fed meats such as beef, bison and lamb are all high in iron and blood cleansing nutrients, so be sure to include these in your diet.
Avoiding all refined and processed foods is also crucial as these offer no nutritional value and many of these foods (particularly processed dairy and soda drinks) actually cause loss of nutrients such as iron from the body. In addition to this, many refined and processed foods contain artificial additives and chemicals that choke up the blood and make your blood platelets sticky, essentially worsening blood disorders such as anemia and its accompanying symptoms.
How to Get Rid of Anemia Cure #7… Reduce Stress And Do Some Regular Moderate Exercise: Maintaining a healthy liver and spleen is crucial for not only curing your anemia, but for keeping it away for good. Stress is one emotion that can quickly exhaust these organs. If you’re a highly strung or stressed out person then you must learn to keep this emotion under control. Do some Yoga or daily meditation to help you relax. Practicing regular tai chi is another great way to relax and gain control over your emotions. Epsom salt baths are also terrific for relaxing the body and come with the added benefit of replenishing the body with crucial magnesium. So be sure to take an Epsom salt bath 3-4 times a week.
Exercise is likewise handy for relieving stress and anxiety. Regular exercise also helps to increase the oxygen supply throughout the body (not to mention that it’s great for your overall health and well being). And it doesn’t need to be fancy either. A brisk 40-50 minute walk or bike ride 4-5 times a week is all you need.
So hopefully these tips and remedies help you out Megan.
