Reiki and Anemia
Reiki is another form of alternative medicine. Although it can cure certain illnesses, one that has never been thoroughly studied in humans is anemia. Anemia is a common blood disorder and this happens when the person's red blood cells are below normal. This often leads to other health problems like fatigue and stress that affects the body's other organs. Until such time that there is scientific proof that it can help patients who are suffering from anemia, Reiki should not be recommended or even attempted. The person should seek the help of a medical professional and then work with what is available.
The medical community for its part has only done a few tests to check on Reiki's effectiveness. For instance, a random test shows that it has an adverse effect on the nervous system as it can lower one's blood pressure, heart rate and breathing. Another suggests it can help the person fight the symptoms of depression. There was also a report stating that Reiki can aid in patients who are in stroke recovery since positive effects on both energy and mood have been noted. The nice thing about Reiki is that it is completely safe. The patient does not have to be injected or required to swallow anything. He or she will just have to sit still and just relax while the practitioner puts the hand over the body.
