Hi,

My son ate some jelly I made few days ago and now he is down with cough and a flowing nose. He is five years old now, but whenever he has an ice cream or cold water the very next day onwards his cold and cough symptoms start he was hosipitalised about 2 years back for bronchital problems. He doesnt have asthama but then why does the cold and cough keep recurring. How can I make his immune system strong?

Hi Lorendsa! Your five year old can take a few simple, specific supplements to maintain a strong and vital immune system during the winter months when colds and flues predominate. An omega-3 fat supplement in the form of fish oil capsules, DHA from algae (Neuromins), or cod liver oil will establish healthy cell membranes that prevent inflammation and resist toxins and attack by pathogens. 200 mg of DHA or one teaspoon of cod liver oil for each 50 pounds of body weight is an appropriate dose. A diet containing significant amounts of fat will help ensure adequate vitamin A intake. Whole milk products, butter, and free range eggs will help maintain necessary levels of this important nutrient. Vitamin A is needed for proper mucous membrane function. It is essential for the growth and repair of body tissues, and for efficient digestion of protein. Most children would benefit from a vitamin A supplement derived from fish oil. Proper dosage is one teaspoon per 50 pounds of body weight. Vitamin E will ensure that fatty acids are maintained at optimum efficiency once they are absorbed into cells. Zinc stimulates immune function, prevents infections, and acts as a cofactor in many enzyme reactions, including the creation of antioxidants. Normal dosage is 10-20 mg. per day. Vitamin C has anti-inflammatory effects, antioxidant activity, and antibiotic qualities. Use 1,000 mg for your five year old. The easiest way to give supplements to your five year old is through powdered sources mixed in a blender with fruit, fruit juice, yogurt or milk, and honey. Capsules can be opened and dumped into the blender. You already know the ways how to trick him :-D I hope this will help you. :-)
