HEMOFORM, as the name implies, is designed to build the blood. This includes red blood cells, white blood cells, and all other constituents of the blood. The blood functions best when all constituents are held within certain limits.
A secondary aim of this product is to help the body eliminate from the blood all substances which do not belong there. Blood overloaded with toxins and waste products suffers in many ways. One, concentration of healthful substances is necessarily lower than it should be. Two, white blood cells, and the glands and organs that supply them, are continually being used up. The stress on the immune system that results can lead to exhaustion of body reserves and to subsequent breakdown of the whole immune process.
HEMOFORM contains several plants that contribute vegetal iron; theoretically, this iron is presented in a form that more easily assimilated and utilized by the body than elemental iron, and is less likely to exert a toxic effect if overconsumed.A program designed to build healthy blood may also include DETOXOFORM, FORTEFORM, GLUCOFORM and perhaps ORTHOFORM. HEMOFORM can also be used to potentiate the action of any of those products and purposes to which they are respectively utilized.
B. Patient Reactions
Most patients presenting with anemia, hypoglycemia and related
conditions will respond to HEMOFORM by steadily improving in health
over the period of several weeks or months.
Neither the patient nor the doctor should be impatient in their expectations about how long it will take for recovery. Typically, the body will utilize the nutrients in this product to the degree it is capable of doing so. Over time, that capability or capacity will increase.
A certain amount of detoxification of the blood can be expected. This may be manifested as headache, nausea, diarrhea or some other mild symptom. These symptoms usually disappear with a few days.
