Q: What are some natural foods that can help with low white blood cells?
A: To intervene Ayurvedically in response to leukopenia, you will most likely need a very precise herbal regimen as prescribed to you by a trained Ayurvedic practitioner. After investigating the specific nature of your constitution, the cause of your imbalances in the body, as well as other indications, he/she will be able to determine the most effective way to increase your white blood cell count and improve your immune function overall. To learn more about Ayurvedic practitioners, you can go to theNational Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine.
With that said, you will do well to consider having a simple vegetarian diet of cooked vegetables and grains along with natural oils like olive, sesame, and almond oil as well as ghee. Eating meats and other heavy foods greatly taxes your body’s digestive system, and the more resources your body has to commit to digesting food the fewer resources it has for the body’s other systems—like the immune system. Beyond a simplification of diet, consult with a trained practitioner to determine the specific cause of your disease and then take the necessary steps to restore your body to balance.
