I am not very familar with anemia. So l did what I always do. I went to Teds ailment page to understand. Here is the email I felt was close to your issues. I wish Ted was well enough to write. He seems to think digestion... as if it were me is always a factor. I would recommend reading the entire chapter. Always baking soda, borax, vitamin c.
I had those horrible periods scary scary. I did not have Earth Clinic then. My Dr. put me on estrogen. Which made my issues worse overall. I never got better until I stsrted borax. Always, my symptoms changed or morphed into other problems.
Fungus stores iron. Borax helps reduce the fungal load. Vitamin c is nessesary to absorb iron. Lugols iodine reduces fungus. Helps thyroid. Chlorophyll assists with pain and absorption. Vinegar douche helps with fungal issues.
Baking soda is critical to digestion. Please read Teds email: http://ted.earthclinic.com/cures/anemia4.html
