I recently had a patient whose blood work showed low iron, which is a fairly common issue people are running into. So today, I thought I’d share the three main reasons why you may be low on iron. From what we put in our bodies (medications and foods) to how we digest, there are a few key reasons for low iron that can be adjusted easily.

You will hear about how important acid is to our bodies, as well as why medications we commonly take can cause iron loss. I will also share how chronic inflammation is related and how you can cut down on it. When it comes to normalizing function, I’ll give you tips on how to give your body the energy and important nutrients it needs.

What You’ll Learn In Today’s Episode:

  • How aspirin and other things you’re taking affect your iron levels.
  • Why your stomach NEEDS acid.
  • What iron is and how it interacts with acid.
  • How to digest your food well.
  • Foods that are great sources of iron.
