The Cure

You can prevent anemia easier than you can cure. A liberal intake of iron in the formative years can go a long way in preventing iron-deficiency anemia. Diet is the most important in treating anemia.

You should consume iron-rich foods:

  • Rice
  • green leafy vegetables
  • cabbage
  • carrot
  • celery
  • spinach
  • tomatoes
  • apples
  • berries
  • cherries
  • raisins
  • figs
  • dates
  • peaches
  • eggs.

A generous intake alone of iron will not help in regeneration of hemoglobin. You should also include protein in your diet.

Taking the entire B-vitamins, it is essential in preventing anemia.

Beets are very important in curing anemia. 
Beet juice contains multiple nutrients such as calcium, potassium, sulfur, iodine, iron, copper, vitamins B1, B2, B6, C and P.
It supplies the body with fresh oxygen and keeps the normal functioning of vascular breathing.
 
Iron is the classic remedy for anemia. However, there are several forms of anemia, and iron deficiency anemia is only one.
 
If one is taking iron pills due to insufficient intake of iron in the average diet, one should also take at least 40 mg. of folic acid every day, along with 10 to 25 mg. of vitamin B12.
