In brief: Diet is not key

Despite all the huckstering, food choices are important in only a few relatively uncommon illnesses.
You've got rheumatoid arthritis and are being treated with a powerful medication. RA itself is prone to cause a moderate anemia that will be better if your illness improves but that you can't otherwise manage. If you're anemic from some other cause, it needs to be worked up. Best wishes.
