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.
Hi - I have haemocromatosis for the past 6 years and I now take cooked cabbage on a regular basis and must say that my ferritin levels as I speak are around the 30 mark!!!!
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.
