Some of the symptoms of anaemia are pallor, tiredness, dizziness, headaches, depression, slow healing, loss of sex drive, bruising, nervousness, shortness of breath, and palpitation. First go for a blood test if you have any of these symptoms and suspect iron deficiency.

Dear Mr Hopking, As you know, I was pregnant and somewhat anaemic when I came to see you. I was going to be taken into hospital because of it. You prescribed for me some herbs with a high iron content. It was great. They were happy with my blood tests. I even was allowed to have my baby at home. I am so grateful to you. I’m now breast feeding, and we’re both doing fine. Thank you so much.

Dear Mr Hopking, I’ve been a patient of yours since 1985! You’ve kept me well down the years. I’m now 88 and was diagnosed anaemic by my GP. I felt very low and out of sorts. You prescribed your Anaemia Tonic. It has transformed me! My blood is normal again, and my energy is 100 percent again and I feel so well! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You’re the iron in herbal medicine!
