In brief: Diet
Eat foods high in iron (such as fortified cereal/breads, lentils/beans, tofu, and green leafy vegetables).
To help your body absorb iron, consume foods like orange juice, strawberries, broccoli, or other fruits and vegetables with vitamin c. Keep in mind calcium prevents absorption of iron. Also don't forget to consume Folic Acid and vitamin b12. Talk to your doctor to discuss these options.
