Thalassemia Help!

I was listening to you on CJAD (Montreal) - I would really appreciate your help with my thalassemia. I have been prescribed iron pills (300mg THREE times a day!!) but cannot take them because of the horrible side effects. I am a very active 37-year-old woman (no children, yet) but very tired all the time.

Thank you so much, Myriam

Hi MyriamA,

Have you looked in taking IRONsmart? Lorna has 2 forms - Liquid (tastes like caramel) and capsules. They are high dose formulas that have virtually zero side effects - nothing like cramping, black teeth, constipation etc.

This should be a fantastic option for you! You can also read Lorna's A-Z Guide for free under the books tab and read the Amenia section for more tips and on the IRONsmart product page there is a whole booklet dedicated to Iron information.

Creating links

There are two ways of creating links:
  • [Example]( produces a link like this: Example
  • The fully qualified address, like, will automatically be converted to a link.

Formatting Text

  • You can make your text italic by surrounding it with * characters, *like this.*
  • Bold formatting is produced by surrounding your text with two stars, **like so**.
  • You can even ***use both at the same time***.


  • You can make a bulleted list using stars, like this:

    * First Item
    * Second Item
    * Third Item

  • If you want a numbered list, just write it out like this:
    1. First Item
    2. Second Item
    3. Third Item


You can produce headers for your posts using the '#' symbol.
  • '#Main Heading Example' produces a top level heading.
  • '##Sub Heading Example' produces a sub level heading.
  • '###Small Heading Example' produces a small heading.
