Sickle cell herbs

There is absolutely no known cure for sickle cell disease, also referred to as sickle cell anemia.  As a matter of fact, this disease is genetically inherited and it is, therefore, harder to treat than contracted diseases.  It is reported that the disease exists in around one in every five hundred African-American births. 

I had three friends who passed away from this disease.  I felt so helpless when they took sick and eventually died.  I kept wondering if there was something I could have done to help them manage this terrible disease. I hoped they would be around for a long time.

I would not wish this disease on my worst enemy after witnessing what my friends went through.  They all had at some time or the other, not once, not twice but numerous times suffered repeated episodes of excruciating pain involving every joint and organ in the body. Although they lived a near to normal life, they were always in and out of the hospital until it took a hold of their bodies in the worst way.

It has to be one of the most dreaded feelings to go to your doctor and hear that you had inherited sickle cell anemia.  Especially, when there is no known cure, the fear must be overpowering.  However, good management to curb the disease is possible through the use of certain medicinal herbs.

Description and symptoms of sickle cell disease

Sickle cell changes the structure of the haemoglobin in red blood cells by producing a sickle or crescent shape which has a very hard time going through the small blood vessels.  

Some of the symptoms of sickle cell anemia are rapid heart rate, severe pain all over the body, dizziness, infections, swollen hands, swollen feet, shortness of breath, sores on the feet, jaundice as well as poor development of the body.  All of my friends had these symptoms along with other symptoms.

Sickle cell herbs 

These medicinal herbs might not be able to cure sickle cell, but they will help to treat and manage the disease and may even prolong life.  My friends died in their thirties and forties.

The medicinal herbs that can be used to treat sickle cell are thyme, yellow dock, Fenugreek, echinacea, yerba mate, sorghum, blue cohosh, white oak, garlic, raspberry, and nettle.  

These herbs will greatly minimize the symptoms of sickle cell disease, and regular drinking of green tea is also very beneficial.

It is paramount that you follow every instruction from your practitioner because this is not an ailment to play around with.  It is a must that you take your medication and endeavor to avoid serious repercussions.  Serious conditions can develop such as stroke, as well as the building up of gallstones.

Therefore, keep in close contact with your practitioners and let them advise you on which of the above sickle cell herbs is suitable for you to consume while taking your prescribed medication.
