How Acupuncture Supports Recovery From Iron-Deficient Anemia

Iron deficiency anemia is a common condition that occurs when your body doesn’t have enough iron to produce hemoglobin, which is a protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen throughout the body. This can lead to symptoms such as fatigue, weakness, and shortness of breath. While iron supplements are often prescribed to help manage this condition, acupuncture is a helpful adjunct therapy.

Acupuncture helps with iron deficiency anemia by improving the absorption of iron and the production of hemoglobin. Acupuncture works by stimulating specific points on the body to improve the flow of energy or Qi. This improves the function of the digestive system for better absorption of nutrients, including iron. It also increases the production of hemoglobin so your body puts the iron to good use.

Acupuncture also increases the body’s supply of ATP, which is a molecule that provides energy to cells. Iron is necessary for the production of ATP, so by increasing the body’s supply of ATP, acupuncture supports the production of hemoglobin and helps alleviate symptoms of anemia.

At Accessible Acupuncture, we also offer a high-quality, bioavailable liquid iron supplement to be used in conjunction with acupuncture to resolve iron deficiency anemia. Our liquid iron supplement is easy to digest and absorbs quickly, making it a convenient and effective option for those who are looking to support their recovery from anemia. (It is also non-constipating)

If you’re struggling with iron deficiency anemia and are looking for a natural, effective way to manage your symptoms, consider acupuncture. The body needs more than just supplemented iron pills to recover from chronic anemia.  At Accessible Acupuncture, we offer personalized treatments that are tailored to your unique needs and goals.
