Blood building foods....
Here's some 'blood building foods' that I've found online, and some suggested by the acupuncturist and my doctor:
(aaauugh -- but probably the BEST blood builder -- has all the minerals/vitamins required) and what I did today was actually grind some up with some lean ground beef
. Couldn't taste it!
-- organic beef bones cooked for hours to bring out the marrow/gelatin
(beet root powder is supposed to be great -- it's very cheap, but a spoonful equals a dozen beets or so!)
and other dark green veggies
yams, carratos, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, beets
(high vit c)
Dates, figs, molasses
These can be served with rice, barely, oats, spelt, millet, potatoes, etc.
And then foods to avoid/reduce[/I]: salads, raw fruits, sprouts, raw veggies (these are all more cleansing, rather than "building') excess amounts of dairy, esp cheese, nut butters and other high oil foods (fried foods), overly sweet foods, refined sugars, cold foods like ice cream (these are all considered too cooling, 'clogging', stagnating for healthy liver function, according to TCM.
But I'm not a doctor, just a sick man.
