    i'm sorry, you said you don't want to go to a doctor. how you know you have anemia?

    the reason why am i asking because there are many types of anemia which sometimes may need special medical attention. for example vit.B12 deficiency may require injectable or oral B12 which cann't be replaced by diet.
