My hemochromatosis reading was 2500, ferritan level very high, was having weekly phelabotomies, slowly coming down. Started to eat raw cabbage for a month and level had dropped to 175, still on cabbage and hemo level down to 33, ferriten level where it should be. Feel great now, no more phelabotomies.

Cabbage and Hemachromatosis:

Some of you may notice I posted a question about this over a month ago and did not receive any replies.

Anyway, I post this hoping that it will really help others.

I was diagnosed with Hemachromatosis (non-hereditary) due to too many blood transfusions....and the blood transfusions were given years ago due to a mis-diagnosis.

So to get to the point, yes....I decided to try the cabbage to see if it would work. I ate 1/2 to 1 cup of raw cabbage a day (mostly in a vegan sandwich, and I do not eat much cooked food). I stayed consistent each day though.

You be the judge. My ferritin level in 1 month went from ...2000 to .....1596 in 3 weeks. I kid you not, and thank goodness this is without any phlebotomies. The nurses could not get my veins anymore, so I will keep on going. The doctors are scratching their heads right about now...lol. So please try it and tell me. I hope you get results too. ;-)

Well wishes to you all.
