Anaemia is a condition that develops,when your blood lacks enough healthy red blood cells or haemoglogin, or a lowered ability of blood to carry oxygen which makes an individual unable to do daily activities with strength and enthusiasm as of a healthy individual.
Anaemia can affect any age groups and both genders, but it varies by age, sex, habits, altitude and pregnancy status. Anaemia is widespread in India and other developing countries as well, and is commonly associated with malnutrition.
Iron deficiency is thought to be the most common cause of anaemia globally, although other conditions, such as folate, vitamin B12 and A deficiencies, certain medicines, protein malnutrition, chronic inflammation, parasitic infections, and inherited disorders can also cause anaemia.

Shortness of breath, fatigue, paleness of skin, lack of perspiration, cold extremities, muscle pain and change in digestion.
According to Ayurveda, anaemia (pandu) occurs due to disturbances in internal metabolism which is the resultant of various factors such as :
FOOD HABITS: foods with antagonistic properties, excess salty, spicy, alkaline and sour food intake.
PHYSICAL ACTIVITIES : Controlling natural urges, excessive exercise, daysleep, blood loss.
MENTAL FACTORS: Anger, anxiety and grief
Anaemia occurs when there is an imbalance in pitta dosha(basic element of body). This vitiated pitta moves through the 10 dhamanis(main arteries) propelled by vitiated vata, reaching all corners of body.
It finally gets lodged in between the skin and muscles, and further aggravates kapha, rakta(blood), twak(skin) and mamsa(muscles). The pitta imparts pale colour to skin and causes anaemia(pandu).
