Low energy and low iron is fairly common. Yes, you can take iron supplements but there are a lot of other things you can do to help and I want to share some of them with you!
- Nourish your spleen. Your spleen is responsible for your red blood cell production and foods that will help nourish that are- squash, pumpkin, and green leafy veggies like kale, chard, spinach, arugula etc. It should be an obvious one, being anemic or not, get in your veggies!
- Probiotics. You need a healthy digestive system in order to be able to absorb nutrients like iron. Getting a probiotic or having things like kefir and sauerkraut on the regular would be very beneficial.
- Get rid of any processed sugar and grains. If you need things sweet try sweetening with stevia or a local raw honey.
- Consume iron rich foods like chicken, liver, grassfed beef, lamb, bison etc.
- Reduce stress in your life. Stress affects a lot more than you may think. It has a huge impact on your health and specifically your spleen. So if you are anemic and live a stressful life, find ways to reduce it and take daily action to step away from the stress when you can and make time to breathe and do something that makes you happy.
- Ginseng. A ginseng supplement help support your spleen and deal with stress. Even a ginseng tea would be a good thing to sip on
Peace, Love & Simply nourish your body
