What is Anemia?

Anemia is diagnosed when a person has a low number of or poor quality red blood cells.  Red blood cells carry oxygen from our lungs to our brain and other tissues in the body.  Most people who have anemia have symptoms of fatigue, weakness, or shortness of breath.

How can I treat it naturally?

Before a treatment plan can be put in place, we first have to determine the underlying cause(s).

The body is wise and trying to convey to you, using the language of “symptoms”, that something you are doing is not agreeing with it.  Dr. Wells will help figure out what your body is saying and correct the problems.  The internal environment of the body produces an external reflection.  Most likely the cause is due to an internal physiological imbalance in the body.

In the case of anemia, the cause could be gastrointestinal bleeding, poor digestion, poor absorption, lack of iron intake, lack of co-factors for iron or heavy menstrual bleeding.  Whatever it may be, Dr. Wells will determine the underlying cause(s) of your anemia, and put a treatment plan in place to get your body back in balance again.

How long before I notice a difference?

Every patient is unique and healing happens faster for some than others.  Treatment protocols usually last from 3 – 6 months to heal the underlying cause.  Most notice improvements within a week or two.

What’s involved in natural treatment?

It is likely Dr. Wells will have you change your diet in some way.  Some natural treatments such as oral herbs, vitamins, minerals, IV nutrients or acupuncture may be needed.

Dr. Wendy Wells treats the person, not the disease.  Everyone labeled with a disease has their own unique symptom picture and will be treated individually from a holistic vantage point.
