Diet For Sickle Cell Anemia

yuccaApparently, people with sickle cell have lower levels of thiocynate in their blood, a compound and reduces ‘sickling’. This is evidenced by those SCD patients living in the Caribbean or African countries who have very few painful episodes, but once they move to the US…they have much more flare ups. You need to continue the same diet you had back home, a diet rich in earthy foods like the following:

 

 

African yam
alfalfa sprouts
apricot
bamboo shoot
banana
bitter almond
broccoli
Brussels sprouts
buckwheat
buffalo berry
cabbage
carrot
cassava
cauliflower
cherry
chickpea
cloudberry
elderberry flaxseed
kohlrabi
lentils
lima bean
macadamia nuts
millet
mustard green
peaches
plantain
plums
radish sprouts
raspberry
red clover
rutabaga
salmonberry
sorghum
strawberry
turnips

The supplement Dioscovite has thiocynate as the active ingredient…so if you want to go that route, you can. Good luck!
