According to Henry, "Antibiotics, vaccines and a poor nutritional status could be working to drag the immune system down." He recommends eating anti-inflammatory foods and avoiding pro-inflammatory foods such as sugar and cows' milk. Also, make sure the child is getting plenty of essential fatty acids, he advises.
Several readers suggest homeopathy for this child. "As a registered homeopath with a lot of experience of working with young children, I have found that homeopathy works wonders with children who are repeatedly ill with various infections," says Gill. "The children respond so well and only need treatment for a short time to make a huge difference to their level of health." To find a practitioner in your area contact the Society of Homeopaths (www.homeopathy-soh.org) or the Alliance for Registered Homeopaths (www.a-r-h.org).
