Do you feel fatigue easily? 



Or you have dizzy spells rather often? Do have a check with your doctor. 

If your result is anaemia - low red blood cells  count, the low haemoglobin in the low blood count have limited capacity for iron. Thus low iron due to this low haemoglobin count results in low oxygen and hence, your frequent and easy fatigue.


So what do you do?
Safety first. Guard yourself from falls - ensure that you do not make sudden movements especially those of changing heights. 

To increase the mineral - iron in your body,

1. Eat green vegetables including brocoli, kale and spinach

2. Increase your consumption of liver, chicken, turkey, fish, shellfish and lean red meat (beef or liver)

3. Take vitamin C as it helps in the absorption of iron. 

4. Limit coffee, tea and cola which hinders the absorption of iron in your body

5. Stress management. As your body becomes stressed, stress hormones create havoc on your system.  2 to 3 minutes of deep breathing at regular intervals throughout the day helps. 

6. Exercise regularly. Jogging, swimming, cycling - physical movements helps to regulate blood flow throughout the body and it strengthens the cardiovascular system which includes your heart, blood vessels and lungs. 

7. Sleep destresses the body and it helps in repair for recovery of body systems. Do ensure that you have 7 to 8 hours sleep. Elderly who are inactive can get by with 5 to 6 hours of sleep, but keyword is quality sleep.

8. Relaxation through yoga and deep breathing.

9.  Schedule regular medical check ups with your doctor to keep tab on your haemoglobin progress.
