Are there any ways to bolster my 5-year-old son’s immune system

Question:

Are there any ways to bolster my 5-year-old son’s immune system so he is less susceptible to respiratory infections?

Answer:

Yes, there are many ways to bolster a child’s immune system, or an adult’s for that matter. We really want to focus first and foremost on a healthy whole foods diet. That probably will do more for his immune system than anything else. Also probiotics, for which there are children’s formulations, can be very helpful in creating a healthy gut. An optimal vitamin D level can be also very helpful to boost immune system and children can also take appropriate doses of Echinacea, Propolis, vitamin C, and things that adults use as well to support the immune system. This should all be done under a physician’s care and the dosing really should be monitored by someone experienced with using any type of treatments in children.
