Abstract: Iron Deficiency Anaemia arises when the balance of Iron intake, iron stores, and body loss of Iron are insufficient to fully support production of erythrocytes. Anaemia affects an estimated 2.36 billion individuals globally, especially women and children. The prevalence of anaemia is estimated to be higher in India when compared to all other developing countries. Also, it is the second leading cause of maternal deaths in the country. The third national family health survey (NFHS-3) estimates suggest that 56% of women and 70% of children in India have anaemia. Homoeopathic system of medicine is a safe, rapid, gentle mode of treatment causing permanent annhilation of disease. The aim of this study was to study the utility of individualised Homoepathic medicines in treatment and management of Iron Deficiency anaemia using Kent Repertory. The medicines were administered on the basis of Homoeopathic principles, & we fulfilled our objective to show effectiveness of homoeopathically similar medicine in taking the case towards improvement & cure. The patients diagnosed with Iron Deficiency anaemia were selected from OPD & peripheral dispensaries of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Homoeopathic Medical College & Hospital, Ludhiana.

In the study, it is found that 30% (15 patients) patients have shown marked improvement in their Reticulocye count, 52% of cases (26 patients) showed moderate improvement & no case got worsened. Similarly, it is found that 28% (14 patients) patients have shown marked improvement in their Haemoglobin count, 56% of cases (28 patients) showed moderate improvement & no case got worsened.
