Re: child with poor immune system....please help
With the use of herbs, it's essential that a healthy diet is followed. In my opinion, it's best to avoid processed foods. Stay away from all "sweets". Foods like fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and whole grains are best. I avoid meats, but that's my personal choice. I think there's so many opinions of what is healthy in a better diet, so there's room for establishing your own guidelines.
With all these natural non-processed foods, we can find so many things to enhance our immune system. For herbs, one of my favorites for the flu is raw garlic. All it takes is one small clove crushed in some food, like in mashed potatoes. Sometimes two cloves can be taken for a large adult. It must be raw to be effective. Ginger and chamomile tea are also good for colds too. I've used that combination for myself with good results. There's others herbs too that work well when we are sick.
