Anemia is characterized by low oxygen capacity and decreased tissue oxygenation. Anemia is not necessarily a direct result of low iron, many people have adequate iron levels and still suffer from anemia, and many experience weakness, dizziness, shortness of breath, and irregular heartbeat. One essential factor in healing anemia is proper mineral and nutrient absorption. Removing sulphur, mucoid plaque, and congestion in the stomach and bowels is critical to improving this condition. Another key element is the health of the kidneys - Erythropoieten, a hormone largely secreted by the kidneys, is essential to the production of red blood cells and hemoglobin, an iron-rich protein that supports red blood cells in transporting oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body. Rather than iron supplementation that your body cannot utilize or taking in animal products on the recommendation of the mainstream, work on the health of the gut and the kidneys. Bioavailable iron is found in abundance through fruits and leafy greens, and can better be absorbed by the body. A balanced approach to healing anemia would be to purify the body through a diet of raw fruit and greens, focusing on the kidneys, lymphatic system, and stomach and bowels, as well as including plants such as dandelion greens and nettle in the form of juices and herbal preparations.
