Fennel is delicious but it's not a treatment for anemia, which has several causes. A person with anemia needs a doctor to help figure out what's causing it and thus what the best treatment is.

I rather like fennel with fresh salmon, fennel braised in EVOO with black pepper, salt, fennel seeds and origano, I like it sliced very thin in a simple salad (lettuce - not iceberg, I hate that, and grated carrots), I like it cooked with carrots as a simple pasta dish, and I like it just as it is for a snack. I always use the green feathery fennel tops - there are plenty of uses for that, but they're pretty good as a garnish.
