Ayurveda refers to anaemia as Pandu Roga. This translates as ‘pale’ since the condition causes a paleness in the body. Ayurveda traces the roots of diseases to improper digestion and metabolism. When the digestive fire Agni in the body is not efficient, it causes improper digestion and the formation of a metabolic toxin called Ama. When there is an imbalance in Agni, it is most often because of the Pitta Dosha and Vata Dosha aggravation. Pitta is aggravated by eating food that is too spicy, sour, salty or hot, exercising or indulging in sexual activity during digestion and being stressed or subject to negative emotions such as anger, fear, and jealousy. When the Pitta Dosha is imbalanced, it weighs and slows down the body. It affects the blood and muscles negatively. Both the Kapha and Vata Doshas can cause anaemia and the Pandu Rog can be further classified based on the Dosha that is causing it.
Vata Dosha – Vataj
Pitta Dosha – Pittaj
Kapha – Kaphaj
All three Doshas – Sannipataj
Clay eating causing anemia – Mrttika bhakshan janya pandu roga

Anaemia is the health condition when a person has too few healthy red blood cells. This impacts the ability of the blood to carry adequate oxygen to the tissues. It makes the person feel very weak and tired. There are many causes for anaemia that include; the body nor producing enough red blood cells, deficiency of iron, sickle cell disease, thalassemia, or vitamin deficiencies. It treats this with supplementation of vitamins and iron as well as diet changes. The conditions that are causing the anaemia are treated individually. Depending on the cause of the disease, the person might need bone marrow transplants, blood transfusions, and treatment of the underlying disease. While genetic problems like thalassemia cannot be prevented, most forms of anaemia are prevented by eating a proper diet. Problems such as burning and flatulence are treated with antacids and avoiding trigger foods.
