Here are two links to info on the many
health benefits of coconut water
I heard it is best served chilled.
Everything you ever wanted to know about kefir, and more, and recipes. http://www.mothering.com/discussions...d.php?t=203282
Here are a few other threads with suggestions: http://www.mothering.com/discussions...th+green+juicehttp://www.mothering.com/discussions...th+green+juicehttp://www.mothering.com/discussions...th+green+juiceBone broths. Many vitamins, minerals, including magnesium, phosphorus, calcium,
sulphur and trace minerals. The sulphur binds with toxins.
Liver. Vit A, B-vitamins, selenium, tryptopan (an essential amino acid), zinc, vit C, iron.
Water, structured water. So, not tap water. Well water or mineral water or spring water or filtered water are all preferable.
CLO, CO, magnesium, zinc, vitamins A, B, C, D, E, selenium, bone broths, whole food probiotics: yogurt, kefir, kombucha, fermented vegetables.
Also, high doses of vit C, and Epsom salt baths for detox.
I'd eliminate dairy, except cultured dairy, or raw dairy, preferrably goat's milk. I really don't believe that we were evolved to consume homogenized, pasteurized dairy. Dairy casein is hidden in many products. http://www.kellymom.com/store/handou...dden-dairy.pdf
We use Sambucol for Kids (also for Adults). It has propolis and elderberry extracts which help lungs/secretions and echinacea for immune support. Only use for any hint of respiratory illness coming on, not constantly.
Also, I strongly recommend classical homeopathy to optimize her immune system. Ds was sick 10 of 14 weeks his first winter. On homeopathy, we never get more than sniffles for 24 hours.
I'd definitely encourage you to make kefir. It has 37+ beneficial microbials to help recolonize the gut. I'd include kombucha in very small daily doses, like only one ounce. It has S. boulardii which displaces and replaces candida yeast. GT Daves has an organic, commercial version. For bottled probiotics, I'd focus on bifidum bacteria for infants/children.
Removing other inhaled allergens and irritants is important also. Here are a bunch of natural alternatives, for folks with (preventing) allergies (or asthma): http://www.mothering.com/discussions...&postcount=147
