A friend is undergoing severe blood loss from chronic bleeding ulcers and I want to share indications of blood deficiency. These indications apply to both weak, thin blood and to loss of blood volume.
Blood Deficiency indications:
Ongoing severe fatigue
Shortness of breath
Weakness of back and legs
Spasms in muscles, limbs
Insomnia, slow/poor memory
Dry eyes, mouth, hair
The more severe the fatigue and other symptoms, the more severe the blood loss/deficiency.
Basically nothing in the body is working well, and is very slow due to lack of sufficient blood supply to any and all organs and systems.
Blood/Qi tonics – *Ganoderma/Reishi, *Dong Quai, Polygonum root (He Shou Wu/Fo-ti), Atractylodes rhizome, Ginseng, Maca, *Wolfberries (Lycium fruit).
Yang/blood tonics – *Ashwagandha root, Cordyceps
Also – Parsley and/or Alfalfa extract; Beef Consumme; Blackstrap Molasses.
