Red beet cures my anemia
I have low red blood cell count for years. Tried all kinds of iron pills, but they all either have bad side effects (upset stomach, constipation) or do no good or both.
I heard red beets contain lots if iron in easy-to digest natural form (also some powerful antioxidants). I tried to make juice out of raw beets, but it was very heavy for the stomach.
Then remembered eating pickled red beets when I was a child as a side dish for meats. So I went with the easiest way (although was not sure if it works in processed form) and got some canned pickled beets from Del Monte.
I have a good sip of the juice and eat some pieces first thing every morning, and it has an instant effect! My day begins well without the headache, weekness, blurred vision and slow thinking caused by the anemia.

Anyone tried it? I know some people dont like the taste - I have some ideas for seasoning.

...I wish I could grow them in the garden.



Red Beets

Their multiple effects are still to be explored!

The ancient Greeks and Romans used red beets (Beta conditiva alef) as a remedy for fever complaints. In medieval times, the juice of red beet roots was recommended as an easily digestible food during various illnesses.

It seems to have been an effective digestive regulator for centuries. The purifying and nourishing qualities of red beets have always been of great value to the nutritionist, and there is unanimous agreement among naturopaths about the fever-reducing, disinfecting, loosening and eliminating properties of this vegetable. Beets obviously stimulate and strengthen the peristaltic activity of the bowels as well as the neighbouring glands: liver, gall bladder, spleen and kidneys.

The bright red colour of the beet--which seems to indicate large stores of vitamins and minerals--attracted the attention of modern medical and nutritional researchers. Their laboratory tests authenticated the claims of our forebears. Thus, red beets are commended today as an easily digestible food (containing carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals) for cases of weakness, sensitive stomach, and for stimulation of the kidneys.

Red beets particularly stimulate the function of the lymphatic system and strengthen bodily resistance to infection in young adults. Because of their general fever-reducing and nourishing effect, red beets have a most favourable influence on catarrhs in connection with colds and flu. Furthermore, red beets speed up the metabolism and facilitate digestion.

As a nutritional supplement in cases of cancer, red beets have gained a reputation in recent years, due to the research carried out by Drs. Ferenczi, Seeger, and Trub. Their tests and results have been chronicled in many scientific publications, particularly in the book Red Beets as Therapeutical Supplement for Patients with Malignant Growths (Karl F. Haug Verlag, Heidelberg.)

Beet Juice is known as a powerful cleanser and builder of the blood. It is an excellent source of vitamin B-6; the minerals choline, iron, organic sodium, and potassium; and natural sugars. while the actual content of iron in beet roots is not as high as in some other foods, it is high-quality iron that is easily and efficiently used by the body.

Re: Red beet cures my anemia
It is possible to overdose on beets.

According to the latest FDA findings only 7600 pounds of beets twice a day can cause a serious (but rare) symptom know as death.

In light of recent studies it has been decided to remove ALL beats from consumer markets immediately. If you have any beets you should return them to your local retailer (at your own expense). Do not pester retailers with any refund requests or abandon any leaking beet containers. Thank you for your coopoeration and have a nice day.

Re: Red beet cures my anemia
Great thread topic, thanks OP. I love beets. I like the pickled ones as well as the plain ones. It's nice to know they are a good source of iron as I definitely need more iron in my diet.

Here's the Earth Clinic page for beets, not too much there but one thing they said is that some Eastern European countries consider eating beets the "Fountain of Youth":

Boil beets and then dice them with olive oil and vinegar onions, garlic, salt pepper tomatoes onions and basil. It's great. I had it for lunch. I had roast pork for dinner with red cabbage and a mango for dessert.

Get in the colors! Red, blue, yellow, orange. It's variety that keeps us healthy!

Hey that is great you like pickled beets! YOu not only get all the beet goods, but the vinegar too! Try eating something with vit. C in it when you eat the beets, it helps your blood absorb the iron.

Re: Red beet cures my anemia
If you decide to cook the beets, best to cook them in whole. When they are cooked (fork goes in easily) let them cool down, peel and slice them. Heat up water,season it with apple cider vinegar, a little cumin seed, a little shredded horseradish, maybe some mustard and pour over the beet slices. Experiment with the spices, dont use too much of any. Store it in the fridge. Great side salad with meats.

Re: Red beet cures my anemia
That was a good joke above about banning beets because they are lethally poisonous.

It made me remember that I wanted to say, it's a good line of study to find out about the medicinal properties of ordinary foods and culinary herbs. Pretty much all kitchen spices have their applications in herbal medicine. I really don't think flavorful cooking herbs like rosemary, cinnamon, sage, etc. will ever fall under rationing for prescription the way some medicinal herbs have in Europe. It is good to have large quantities of them and regular tea herbs like peppermint, and some books that tell what they are good for.

If the Codex laws every really do go into effect in the USA, and we can't get our vitamins and supplements that we are used to taking, we will want to know what some alternatives are.

The web site Earth Clinic [link to www.earthclinic.com]
has so much good information about how to experiment with things like vinegar, honey, molasses, hydrogen peroxide, etc., that you already have around the house and that can be used effectively and safely against a lot of different ailments.

Home remedies are the future, I'm sure of it.

Re: Red beet cures my anemia
Great stuff, OP.

Hillcrest, I don't know anything specific about anemia cures but I do know that there are a couple of kinds of dietary iron (heme & non-heme) and that there are some foods that help you absorb iron and some that block you from absorbing it. So if you do want to absorb more iron you might want to eat the iron-blocking foods at a different time of the day.

 Quoting: Hillcrest

From Back to Eden by Jethro Kloss...herbs that are good for anemia...comfrey, dandelion, fenugreek, barberry bark, agrimony, century, raspberry leaves, quassia chips...
*****************************
From The Ultimate Healing System by Donald Lepore..
Anemia is a condition in which the iron level of a person is so low not enough red blood cells are produced, making the person feel constantly tired. One of the secrets I have found in correcting anemia, is to first check the zinc level instead of the iron level. When the zinc level is low, the body rejects iron, so both the iron and zinc levels must be balanced. By bringing the zinc level up, the iron will then be absorbed because it will then have to keep up with the zinc level. What will happen then is that the red blood cells will be manufactured and the anemia will eventually be healed.

There are two types of iron: organic iron, which is from vegetables, and inorganic iron, which is from the mines. Most pharmaceutical products are inorganic. We have also found the herb yellowdock to be a very good source of iron, and also liver and blackstrap molasses to be very good sources of organic iron. Be taking thise organic iron substances and raising the zinc level, you will have an effective remedy to get rid of the anemic condition.
*********************************
Beets are good, but don't throw away the tops. I've read that beet tops contain 3 times the amount of iron as the beet itself.
