Resolved Question:

My wife and I run a home business, When one of us gets sick, its puts the business behind. We have a 2.5 year old daughter, that goes to school for 3 hours a day, four days a week. Last year we got sick 7 times. We took "C" and "D" and it really did not nothing. This year, I have been sick twice already. I looked into herbal aspect and saw that there are some herbs that I could take to prevent this. Looking to find out what I can do to stop from getting sick so much. Also what can my 2.5 year old daughter take.

Can you tell me what you mean by your getting sick?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Sore throat, runny nose, basically common cold. Last year we all got the stomach flue twice.

Do you get a flu vaccination each year?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
We do. I am looking on what to build my immune system up.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 5 years ago.
OK. I'd recommend omega three, astragalus, vitamin D, zinc, echinacea, garlic, ginger, and vitamin C, although the jury's still out on that last one. A HEPA filter air filterer in the home can also help. As for your daughter, although those are OK for her also, you should ask a pediatrician about this before giving her any more than the vitamins.
