Anemia Causes and Gem Therapy

What is Anemia? Is there a connection between this health condition and your personal horoscope chart? Do your Astrological birth sign have any role in you being Anemic? Before I talk about the influence of Planets in the Horoscope, let me briefly explain what is Anemia and how it is caused.

Anemia is a health condition in which the hemoglobin or red blood cell count is lesser than normal. The normal level of hemoglobin is generally different in males and females. For men if the hemoglobin level is less than 13.5 gram per 100 ml and for women if it is less than 12 gram per 100 ml then they are said to be anemic. Generally speaking Anemia is either caused when there is a decrease in production of red corpuscles or by a loss of blood. Some other causes of anemia can be heredity, long term use of malaria drugs, lack of iron or vitamin C or other essential nutrients in diet etc. As a result of anemia the individual may appear pale, lacks good appetite, gets easily tired or may suffer from headache and nausea. A proper diet can be helpful for those suffering from anemia. An anemic should consume green leafy vegetables, sprouts and fruits like oranges, guava, sweet lime etc.
