How do I boost my 2yo dd's immune system? She has had a terrible cough off and on for 2mo. Her nose is constantly running. I would really like to help her get over this. Any suggestions??

I would give her Sodium Ascorbate to get her over the sickness. And after she is well, try to boost her immune system with a super healthy diet. Lots of raw foods, vegetables, fruit, whole grain, organic yogurt..

Don't give any sugar. Sugar damages the immune system. No soda or white anything...and most importantly avoid antibiotics and vaccines.

Vaccines do not permit a human to develop a normal healthy immune system and antibiotics trash the gut which will never recover and get all the healthy flora back again. Without it the child is always vulnerable.

You might want to try echinaeca and probiotics.
