Iron

  • Posted by Al.E.Light on March 19, 2022 at 1:07 pm

    Hi all, Iron continues to come into my awareness and I’m feeling it’s needed both in my physical body as well as I’m exploring what it can do for the land I currently live on. (We have been in a drought for many years in the Texas Hill Country as well as seeking to better innerstand why I’ve been drawn to this land for aiding in healing) Anyone have suggestions on Iron intake/supplements? I lean more towards getting our minerals through food intake and I’m open to quality supplement options. Thanks I’m advance 🙏🏽🙏🏽

    Thats a good question! Do you know your blood type? In some cases copper could be more beneficial!

      Yeah, I’ve been needing to double check that. I remember from middle school I am O just don’t remember if positive or negative. I’ve been intentional about asking the land what it needs lately and how I can assist, and Iron has been showing up big in my reality these past few days. And I notice the land that we live on parallels me and my family’s bodies pretty accurately so was thinking it’s something I can be doing for my physical body as well as explore how I can work with the land also. Will look into copper also, thanks for that.

    Hi, Al.E,

    I am a beginner herbalist and can give a good suggestion. The herb Yellow Dock/Broadleaf dock can be extraordinarily beneficial for helping your body absorb the iron you already consume naturally. I make a syrup by simmering the dock roots with blackstrap molasses (which has tons of iron), and take that near my periods. I also will take if I ever get pregnant again. It has the added benefit of being a liver detoxifier, as well as a digestive aid. It will not make you constipated – quite the opposite! lol

    I would go online and check to see if there is a type that grows in your area. If it doesn’t, you can order online. There are other herbs that grow in desert type areas that I’m less familiar with, but I can find that info if you like.
