ABSTRACT:
Sickle cell anaemia is a genetic blood disease due to the presence of an abnormal form of ‘haemoglobin S’ (the haemoglobin becomes shaped like a sickle, hence the name sickle cell anaemia). The cells eventually undergo lyses causing blockage or occlusion of the blood vessels and it leads to severe pain in the bones (this episode is called as crisis). Due to the many complications that are associated with the diseases, natural herbs such as the Annona species, clove, papaya etc. are important to keep the patient at least healthy as the use of synthetic drugs may have lots of complications and negative side effects on the patient in the long run. Synthetic drugs are also comparatively expensive to maintain continuous use since drugs are taken all through the individual’s lifetime. The patient might as well develop tolerance or incompatibilities may occur. Therefore herbs are better used since they are more like food substances, comparatively less side effects, comparatively cheap and more acceptable.
