How to cure anemia without a doctor? My experiences as a teenager and as a pregnant woman.
The problem of anemia is diagnosed in many people. A large group of people diagnosed with anemia is pregnant women. Because let’s face, the health care system in my Central European country obliges pregnant women to do regular tests while refusing to give other people prescriptions for tests.
Maybe your blood is missing hemoglobin or its molecules are too small to transport enough oxygen for your body functioning?
Anemia can – and for your own comfort should – be cured. I do not recommend to you what doctors suggest – attempts to cover up the symptoms instead of dealing with what caused the illness.
Why do I call doctors’ actions stupid?
Taking iron tablets (ferric or ferrous iron supplements) is like covering blemish with a foundation. The blemish still exists and after some time the foundation will wipe off or you will remove it.
The same it is with iron deficiency in the body.
Firstly, understand that it is possible that you deliver enough iron to your body, but for some reason, it is not absorbed.
Secondly, does it make sense to take iron pills to meet the proper level of iron in the blood, if after finishing the treatment your blood will return to the previous state?
How to cure anemia without a doctor?
The theory is:
1 | Provide appropriate doses of iron in your diet.
Doctors mention beets and spinach. But there are those who admit that plants contain such little amounts or such a form of iron that you would need to eat daily two trucks of spinach to meet the demand for iron.
So there is the meat. Iron from meat is best absorbed, and the best is in organ, for example, liver.
2 | Deliver a lot of vitamin C.
The body needs vitamin C to absorb iron. So eat fruits and sauerkraut.
3 | Look at your health holistically.
The doctor did not tell you, but problems with iron, especially with its absorption, may have a multitude of reasons other than that you do not deliver iron in your diet.
You can have parasites that feed with your iron. So, as in the case of most diseases – it would be perfect if you would say goodbye to sugar, bread, and processed food. With these products, you feed your parasites which can steal the best bits of your meals.
My teenage anemia story and does doctors’ work make any sense?
During my first pregnancy, by following wise people advice (and not by taking doctor’s supplements) I got to a point where I had great blood tests results. It was the blood composition considered healthy. In the case of pregnant women, doctors recognize that unreachable. I deduce that their pills can not improve the blood to the needed level.
When I was a teenager I also got anemia diagnosis. The doctor tried to cure it. For a year and a half, I examined the blood. I was doing tests before the menstruation, in the middle and after. The doctor tried to discover, how to cure anemia in my body. The actions proposed by her did not give results. Instead of trying other methods, after a year and a half of trying to cure anemia, my doctor said it is how I am. I have such a tendency, such beauty that I just have a lower iron level. A healthy woman has a specific amount of hemoglobin, and I have a lot less because it is how I am.
She did not try to look for help in homeopathy, nor to look at my body from a different point, nor to eliminate parasites, do detoxification, cleansing, big changes in diet. No, nothing. Pills have not worked, but it is me who is not working properly, not the pills.
How have I improved my blood tests results and treated iron deficiency in pregnancy?
During another visit, with a standard set of test results, the midwife told me that my blood test results are not like the blood results of a pregnant woman. I had improved it so much, and I already had anemia just a few weeks earlier. And then my doctor, watching the results, asked if I was taking something for such blood results. I have understood that pills, advertised by her, had never given such results.
And a friend of my Mum recommended me to buy a beet and apple juice – available once a week at a health food market in our town.
In the past, there were times when I was making juice from beets, carrots, and apples at home. But it was too much work for then-pregnant me, having a demanding business. So I just mixed the bought juice with water. The taste was good.

For all those who are struggling with anemia I recommend: take care of yourself – nobody else will do it for you. Get informed, take control of what you eat, what kind of substances are in your environment, what is your lifestyle. I temporarily improved my health with beet and apple juice. But I’m working on cleaning my body of sugar and other harmful substances or toxins.
