Somewhere there is a list of paleo friendly doctors around the country--hopefully someone who remembers where will chime in. It would also help if you state what general area you live in.

I would look into an IgE anti alpha-gal test.

What kind of iron are you taking? (ferrous gluconate?)

Ostrich meatloaf FTW. I think @sydneypark's problem is an opportunity for some interesting meals.

What kind of doctors hear an anemic patient isn't eating meat and goes "hmm.. we're out of options" and prescribes magnetic tablets. My vote is for octopus supplements.

Fried cephalopod will put you on the one.

You might need to start mainlining some b12. What about bison / lamb and other animals and organs? Oysters and goose liver.. octopus, you eat any of this stuff?

I had the best bison ribeye for breakfast yesterday.. I need to track down some chicken hearts.

Eat liver from some kind of animal you're not allergic to. Goat, goose, duck, lamb, bison...maybe even try eating it raw (make sure it's organic and humanely raised and frozen for at least two weeks at a VERY low temperature) and grated with some lemon juice. The vitamin C will help you absorb the already usable iron in it.

I can't recall where (perhaps it was on the Bulletproof Executive forum somewhere?), however I read recently that Vitamin C supplementation to the tune of 1-2 grams with meals can increase iron absorption. For most of us on Paleo, this isn't exactly a desirable effect, however in someone with anemia, it might be beneficial. You said that the iron pills aren't helping much? Try 'em with a little Vitamin C, perhaps. Or take some Vitamin C along with iron-rich foods. Vitamin C in the form of ascorbic acid crystals or powder, dissolved in water. Might help.

In reply to Jankintz's suggestion for list of doctors, there are two lists I know of:

The problem with these lists is that most of the providers on them aren't MDs or even NDs: they're chiropractors. They're trained on a faulty basis of disease and proceed from there. Some have educated themselves beyond this training, but they aren't well-trained in all the arcana of physiology, endocrinology, disease pathology, and they usually can't order lab work, write prescriptions, or admit people to hospitals. Your situation seems like it might require all three.

How about eggs? They're an excellent source of protein and nutrients you're probably not getting. They're very satiating, though, so you'll need to eat quite a few.

Also, how about fish? Salmon is great. Are you allergic to shellfish? They're nature's vitamin pill. How about macadamia nuts?

A combination of 2000 IU D3, magnesium malate, and potassium iodide supplementation can fix a lot of weird problems.

If you have crazy amounts of food allergies/intolerances, suspect leaky gut. Going gluten-free is a must, and a Whole 30 might be a good idea.

Sounds like you could do with a consult with a good functional medicine doctor--make sure it's an MD or DO because of your medical complexity. Functional medicine doctors will look at the WHOLE person--environment, nutrition, medical evaluation etc. and come up with a plan.

What you are describing is way beyond what lay people can help you with on the internet, although a good paleo diet, perhaps with an autoimmune protocol, wouldn't hurt. You don't have to eat beef on paleo if you can't, and dairy isn't officially paleo anyway. But please don't skip being seen by a good functional medical doctor who can diagnose what is going on and prescribe the most effective treatment.

have you needed iron infusions or blood transfusions?

what are your iron and hemoglobin levels?

Have you been raised by vegan/vegetarian parents?

Because the "beef allergy" is extremely uncommon, and usually passes with age.

Meat is possibly the only caloric source that almost no adult human on the planet(like 99%) is allergic to(as opposed to grains, nuts, berries, fruits and vegetables).

Also, Anemia doesn't cause blood loss or disruption of hematological coagulation.

The only thing that Anemia does, it reduce the ability of your blood in transporting oxygen(by either reducing absorption of iron/causing a deformity in the formation of hemoglobin, which causes it to bind oxygen less effectively/ or some other combination of the previous).

What you're describing with the blood loss sounds somewhat like hemophilia, which is a terrible, terrible disease, but completely unrelated to anemia.

Has anyone actually tested you for "beef allergy"?

How does the allergic reaction manifest;

Soreness/swelling/flushed skin/difficulty breathing/any combination of the three?).

As to why I asked the first question: A lot of people who were raised by vegans but "stray from the vegan path" experience some kind of pseudo allergic reaction to nutrients that were previously barred from them(Also incredibly common with Jews who never mixed meat and dairy, or ate pork) because their bodies have never learned how to deal with the new nutrient, so it just goes all kinds of crazy(Which is also why in recent years nut allergies turned to an epidemic; Parents aren't exposing their children to nuts early enough, so that when they ARE exposed, their bodies can't handle the new nutrients, and just goes apeshit.
