Why Do I Develop Anemia?
Question for Ted please: Dear Ted, thank you for all your help and advice and valuable information on a previous question I asked (regarding fluoride). About two years ago my cat had a fungus growing on his skin. About a month later I developed itchy sores which looked almost like pimples on my legs. I also had no appetite and became nauseas every time I try to eat. I could only eat a little bit of lettuce and tomato once a day and lost a lot of weight. I was happy about the weight loss but felt really sick, weak and as if I was not getting enough oxygen. Various doctors wanted to treat me for stress, but I refused. I finally asked a doctor to treat me for a fungal infection and after a month of Lamysil tablets, the sores and other symptoms disappeared. I also started taking iron tablets. I noticed that if I stop with the iron tablets for more than a week, I develop dandruff and if I stop long enough (about a month) the sores on my legs come back. I also feel week and out of breath if I stop for too long with the iron. I am worried that the fungus might still be in my body and I am also wondering why I need to constantly take iron supplement. Will it work if I take a pinch of Borax and a drop of clove oil in a glass of water to kill a possible fungus. I am still exposed to my cat's fungus every day as the vet could not cure my cat. I am also wondering where my iron is disappearing to as I am not a vegetarian and am not menstruating. Why do I develop anemia so quickly when I don't take iron supplements? (I am 32 years old.) Any help and advise will be very much appreciated.
