Anemia is a disorder characterized by an abnormally low level of hemoglobin, usually accompanied by an abnormally low red blood count. As a result, an insufficient amount of oxygen is transported from the lungs to the cells. Rather than being a distinct illness, Anemia is considered a condition, like paralysis or fever, with many potential causes. Some of the causes of this disorder include insufficient iron, vitamin deficiency, hypothyroidism, the untimely destruction of red blood cells, the destruction of bone marrow cells due to cancer or leukemia, bone marrow injury, an inherent defect in red blood cells such as sickle-cell Anemia, or an immune system deficiency.
Indications may vary considerably with age, general health and other factors, and persons suffering from this disorder may experience one or more of the following symptoms: chronic fatigue and exhaustion, irregular pulse or heart palpitations, dizziness, headache, tinnitus (ringing of the ears) or vertigo (dizziness), irritability, difficulty sleeping or trouble concentrating.
The main problem which results from this condition is tissue hypoxia. When it has developed rapidly, the intravascular blood flow may become unbalanced, resulting in a fall in cardiac output, shunting of blood from skin to central organs, sweating, restlessness, thirst and shortness of breath. If it progresses slowly the body creates many adaptations for oxygen maintenance.
Perhaps the most common sign of this disease is unusual paleness. In older people, chest pains can be an important indicator. Women may experience abnormal menstruation, both amenorrhea and increased bleeding. Men may experience decreased libido or impotence.
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, who brought the Transcendental Meditation technique to the world more than 50 years ago, has revived and systematized Maharishi Vedic Vibration Technology. The word "Vedic" means pertaining to Veda, the field of Pure Knowledge or Total Knowledge of Natural Law.
For thousands of years, Veda and the Vedic Literature have been held to be the expression of the Total Knowledge of Natural Law. According to tradition, the Vedic sounds contained in Veda are the fundamental vibrations which structure the material universe, including the human body. Through a tender impulse of Vedic vibration, pain can be transformed into a feeling of pleasantness and abnormality can be transformed into normal physiological functioning.
