In brief: Adjunct only

You would be making a terrible mistake to rely only on a "traditional herb" for such a serious illness.
Start with evidence-based treatment that is your right in the 21st century.

In brief: Not known!

In saptamrita lauha as in many other herbal supplements, there are not enough research available to confirm or refute its effectiveness.
In uncommon diseases such as sickle cell retinopathy- related vitreous hemorrhage, conducting such a research is difficult to conduct.
