ANEMIA DURING PREGNANCY AYURVEDIC TREATMENT

Anemia during pregnancy can easily be treated by adding iron or vitamin supplements to the daily routine. Typically, this is all that is needed to reverse the effects of anemia. However, in very rare cases, women with severe anemia may need a blood transfusion.

Diet Recommendations (Aahar)

Diet rich in iron is recommended. Some of the iron rich foods are –

  • Lean, red meats and poultry
  • Dark, leafy green vegetables (such as broccoli, kale and spinach)
  • Eggs
  • Raisins, dates, pomegranates, apples, sesame seeds, jaggery, figs and beetroot
  • More fresh fruits, vegetables, legumes and whole grains
  • Milk is essential but avoid drinking milk immediately after taking an iron supplement as calcium may interrupt iron absorption

Iron taken along with vitamin C helps in better absorption of iron. Some of the vitamin C rich foods include citrus fruits and juices like oranges, lemons, amla etc., strawberries, tomatoes, peppers etc.

Lifestyle changes (Vihar)

  • Avoidance of smoking and alcohol
  • Regular exercise to maintain fitness
  • Avoidance of contact with animals for prevention of worm infestation
  • Eating a healthy balanced diet
  • Getting adequate sleep
