Find cause: You should not try to treat your own anemia without finding a cause. Although the most common cause worldwide is iron deficiency, there are other anemias for which iron treatment is dangerous. Even for iron deficiency an underlying cause must be found. Please get with your physician, find the actual cause, and accept scientific treatment that is right for you.
