Q.

Confused

Hi Doc
Please can I have a medical opinion. My mother in law says that bananas are cold fruits. So they aggrevate the flu. Is this true. Are there some fruits that we should not give my 17 month old?

I have my son on Probiflora daily to boost his immune system. I recently spoke to a naturopath who said that the probiflora that I give my little on is an animal strain and that I should get a human strain immune booster. Is this true and should I get another immune booster?
Thank You
Kaaj

Both of these statements are without any foundation. You can give your little toddler bananas and Probiflora is an excellent immune booster.
