Anemias

Anemia is one of the most common blood conditions in the United States. It can be caused by a variety of things but is most commonly linked to poor gut health. The Gut Authority can work with you to make changes to your diet and lifestyle to ensure your gut is absorbing the iron you need. 

What Is Anemia?

Anemia happens when you have a low red blood cell count or irregular red blood cells. Without enough hemoglobin, which is the oxygen binder, your blood isn’t transporting enough oxygen around your body. When your cells aren’t getting enough oxygen then it can wreak havoc on your body and cause all sorts of unpleasant symptoms.

Symptoms of Anemia

Symptoms will vary greatly depending on the individual. Often, patients don’t know they have anemia until a general blood test reveals it. Some common symptoms include:

  • Fatigue and low stamina
  • Headaches
  • Increase in infections
  • Restless Leg Syndrome
  • Unusual cravings for non-edible things such as dirt and starch
  • Cold hands and feet

Some other symptoms of anemia include symptoms associated with low thyroid and depression.

We Take A Holistic Approach to Treatment

While many doctors just treat the symptoms, we want to get to the root cause of your issue. Most iron deficiencies can be linked to leaky gut and bowel inflammation. We’ll go over your health history and your lifestyle as well as do a variety of tests. We’ll then provide nutritional and lifestyle counseling to help you make choices to heal your gut.
