Symptoms Of Anemia
            Anemia means deficiency of Red Blood Cells in the blood. In this condition the blood becomes more fluid and flows with more speed, this makes the person feel like " Pumping" in his chest and his heart beats going up.

Red Blood Cells are also oxygen carriers of the blood, and their deficiency leads to lack of oxygen to the different body parts, which leads to Headache, weak memory, irritation, lack of concentration, black spots below eyes, insomnia and loss of weight.

These includes green vegetables, onion, potato, apple, date, carrots etc. A very easy remedy for anemia is to cook your curries in iron vessels, this leads to iron inflow into the curry and it helps us to gain iron needed for our body.
Non-nutritional anemia is due to some other reason than nutritional deficiency, they are due to various factors for which you should consult your physician.
Aplastic anemia is due to deactivation of bone marrow, due to which red blood cells don't gets manufactured.
Familium Homiletic anemia is a genetic disorder. Many times an old infection may also leads to anemia.
