My 22 year old daughter has been diagnosed with Mono and Anemia. she had a positive ANA testing her immune system. Her Dr has scheduled an apt. with a Hemotologist. Is this all related to the Mono? What would you suggest to build her immune system naturally.
Mild iron deficiency anemia is common in women do to the monthly loss of blood. The diet needs to be rich in natural sources of Iron; foods naturally rich in Iron would include: molasses, brewers yeast, organic meat including organ meats, dark green leafy vegetables to name a few. Healthy iron rich blood cells carrying oxygen are the building block of a healthy immune system. A clean, well balanced diet that eliminates sodas, processed foods and foods made with processed sugar also help to build healthy immune systems. There are many herbal and supplemental supports to a healthy immune system but I recommend making those choices with a professional who can help tailor a program to your specific health concerns, diet and lifestyle.
