Iron is a trace mineral that we don't need much of and its found in plenty in green leafy vegetables, the darker the leaf, the more iron in general. People are generally anemic not due to iron deficiency but due to lack of B12 which in a healthy intestine is made in plenty. however, most people do not have healhty intestines and so need a b12 supplment for a few years when transitioning into a diet that builds the healthy bacteria.
yes, do get the B12, most people do best with under the tongue B12 drops. And the best results i have seen with an iron supplement is floridex.
Goodluck with everything,
Hi @Ernst and Everyone, what would cause someone to have more trouble digesting cooked foods than raw foods? I don't seem to have a problem with raw foods (no gas, bloating, etc.) and I can eat a lot of raw cabbage, kale, etc, with no problems at all but I always have bloating, indigestion and gas from cooked foods/veggies. I know my gut and digestion isn't in good shape/efficient so this has always puzzled me.
Thank you for your insights,
There is a lot of complexity going into it. For instance, if you have mercury in your system, cooked cabbage and its family veggies can cause digestive issues. I am sure there are so many things that we dont even understnad yet causing these different reactions. If you can eat raw, you are lucky, do it and reduce the toxic load and you wlll be much better off.
That's a possibility for mercury in the body. I had a hair analysis many years ago and mercury was fairly high. Is there a way to remove it from the body without chelation? Thankfully I don't like the taste (or lack thereof) of cooked food so I'm definitely good with eating raw! Thanks for the reply! 😀
