I restored my iron level in just 4 weeks!
Several years ago I was recovering from a miscarriage where I lost over half the blood in my body. Even after a blood transfusion, my numbers were...
Hematocrit 23.8, Hemoglobin 8.6
When I left the hospital, I was told it would take 4-6 months to get my blood count and iron level back up to normal.
My plan was to rest and drink plenty of water. I knew the iron supplements doctors prescribe are hard to absorb and usually cause constipation. So I wanted something natural.
I went home and muscle tested myself to see what my body needed to build itself back up. I got a list of herbs: alfalfa, dandelion root, and burdock root.
I also got a blend I now call Iron Supplement…simple, right? It contains dehydrated liver powder (which is a superfood!) and Indian Gooseberry for the vitamin C. The body needs vitamin C in order to absorb iron. It's a good thing I own an herb store and had everything I needed!
For good measure, I also took a liquid iron supplement that had helped me before. It’s an all herbal formula (also contains vitamin C) called Floradix. Obviously, the company that makes it knows what they’re doing!
I was SOOOO tired when I first came home!
I rested as much as possible, drank lots of water, and took the herbs I mentioned. Loving friends brought me meals, and my husband was great about helping make sure I ate. My kids even stepped up to help. But let’s face it, Mama needs to be able to function!
Exactly 4 weeks later, I had blood work done and my new numbers were normal!
Hematocrit 35.4, Hemoglobin 11.5
I made it into the normal range in just 4 weeks instead of the 4-6 months the doctors said it would take!
Your body is a miraculous healing machine, it just needs the right tools!
