I wanted to drop you a line and let you know that I am thrilled with the carao syrup and its effect upon my 6-year old daughter! She had been anemic, with hemoglobin of 10.2 despite my efforts to feed her a very healthy diet and provide vitamins with iron for years.
She went Tuesday to the pediatrician and I asked them to do a check on her hemoglobin - they were blown away, as was I , to find out that it was at 12.4! They asked me what I had done. I told them about carao syrup, and said that I didn't want to tell the doctor about it until/unless I saw results. She's on her third bottle, but this is the first time she's been checked since starting the syrup.
The nurses had me talk with the doctor, and he agreed "keep on doing what you're doing".
Thank you so much for telling 'the world' about this product. I am thrilled to have discovered it.
One question: from your experience/knowledge, would a child need to stay on the syrup 'indefinitely' if they have a history of anemia, or does their red blood count stay up once it's been achieved, and they can eventually stop taking the syrup? Again, thanks so much, and please let me know what your findings about how long they should take the syrup indicate. Judy, MO
[Lloyd replied] Hello Judy. Thank you very much for your email. I'm sorry to not have responded sooner to it.
Glad to hear the good results with your daughter! You were very smart to not tell your doctor about the carao at the beginning, since almost every doctor will advise against anything they don't know about. This is in fact understandable in today's "litigation society."
In people without a chronic disease or health problem that is causing the anemia, the anemia may be resolved without need to continue using the carao. This is especially true in the very young. Therefore, we think you can stop giving it to her and she will probably maintain her normal hemoglobin. However, since she had a long history of anemia, we think it would be a good idea to give it to her about once a week as a nutritional boost for a couple of months, since her diet might not be perfect.
Remember that carao is a natural food, not a medicine, and it can be taken at any time with no adverse effects.
