Homeopathy for Anemia

Anemia is a condition that occurs when the body is lacking iron. This lack of iron leads to a reduction in red blood cells which store and carry oxygen throughout the body. When the body is lacking oxygen a person can be pale, tired, short of breath, have headaches and altered sense of taste, itchiness, mouth sores and even hairless sometimes.

The usual treatment for low iron is taking iron supplements, (which can cause nausea, bowel issues and abdominal pain), and increasing your intake of iron rich foods like leafy green vegetables, pulses and beans, nuts and seeds and of course meats and dried fruits.

Thankfully there are a number of options through homeopathic treatment. I have listed a few remedies below that could be helpful but you'll have the most success by seeking the help of a licensed homeopath that can prescribe a constitutional remedy for you.

Natrum Muriaticum:

This is one of the best homeopathic medicines for anaemia. The person is typically worse in heat or in summer. There is increased desire for salty foods. Edema is often seen in the feet or around the eyes.


This remedy is useful when the main symptom is weakness or exhaustion.

There is increased thirst for cold water. The patient is usually thin and tall. There is great weakness of the nervous system. There can also be an increased restlessness and they can't stand noise, light or strong smells.


This is often a female remedy, although not always. The patient is typically sensitive and cries easily. They feel better in outdoors and are worse in heat. Thirstlesness is another guiding symptom for the use of this medicine.
