Hi my daughter is constantly sick she has had her bloods taken for allergies and she is fine.The meds the doctors and peads put her on dont seem to have any effect what so ever.Her runny nose always leads to some type of infection.I was told these vitamin supplements to build their immune system is a waste but to be honest I am dessperate.I have bought viral guard but want to know your opinion on this? Also do you think it will soon be decided she get grommets, what are gromments and their purpose??

Grommets are tiny tubes which are inserted in the eardrums to drain fluid and mucous from the middle ears. They are commonly used in children for a problem called 'glue ear' and are very effective and safe.
You can certainly try the Viral Choice Junior as an immune booster as well as using Probiflora children's chewable tablets as a probiotic and immune booster for 10 days per month during the winter months.
