Depends on cause: There are many causes of anemia. You need to know why before treating. Sometimes it is diet related (iron deficiency), other times it is can be caused by chronic inflammation, auto-antibodies, or diseases in the bone marrow. If it is iron related, eating red meat and green leafy vegetables can help. But first, you need to know why you are anemic.
