Hemochromatosis Treatment in Ayurveda with Herbal Remedies

Iron is one of the essential minerals present in the body that helps in growth as well as development. Iron helps in making hemoglobin, a protein present in red blood cells that is useful in carrying oxygen. The body stores almost 25 percent of the iron in the form of ferritin which is circulating in the blood. The average amount of iron stored in the adult male is 1,000 mg and adult women contain 300 mg but when this amount of iron is increased more than our body needs it gives rise to a disorder known as Hemochromatosis. In this article, we are going to discuss this disease in detail along with its management through herbal medicine.


It is the disorder that causes the body to absorb iron from the foods more than needed. This excessive amount of iron is then stored in the organs including the heart, pancreas, and liver. This much amount of iron results in life-threatening conditions like diabetes, liver disease, or heart problems. It is a genetic disorder that is found in a minority of people. The signs and symptoms of hemochromatosis are usually seen in midlife. It is difficult to diagnose the disease in the earlier stages and it cannot be prevented.
