Q.

Build my 2 year old son’ s immune system


What can I give my little boy of 2 years to build his immune system? He gets tonsillitis about every month and from that he gets a croup attack. He was in hospital two weeks ago for croup but since the weekend he has a runny nose and teary eyes and a wet cough. Like in when they just start to get a cold. What can I do? He does get Scott’ s every day but it does not seem to work. From December up to now he was on antibiotics.

Give your son a good probiotic every day such as Probiflora Children's once daily. Continue doing this right through the coming winter. Also give him Creche Guard daily. You can stop the Scotts Emulsion.

Thank you very much will try the Probiotic and Crè che Guard for now. Don’ t really want to put him through the removing of his tonsils. Because he does not eat well and is still on formula Milk. But will defiantly look at it in the near Future.

I agree with the doc and Tina. Creche Guard and Probiflora have made a big difference to my LOs.

The antibiotics is the problem - destroys the immune system. Why don' t you have the tonsils removed? My baby was 17mnths when his was removed - he was a different child!!! He also struggled with tonsilitis every 2nd week, was constantly on antibiotics.... it all changed when his tonsils were out!

Try creche guard or olive leaf extract for his immune system - I found it to be very good for my kids.

Good luck :-)
