Antibiotics are great at killing the bad guys, however, they also kill of the good ones in the process, leaving your child more prone to picking up additional infections. By killing off the good bacteria in the gut, the immune system is also being reduced, hence recurrent infections.
Other common childhood ailments including eczema, molluscum contagiosum and food intolerances share a similar trait, and they are all immune related.
Children are more prone to picking up infections as their exposure to illness is greater once they start childcare and school. Building up their immune system naturally is the best way to reduce the onset, duration and recurrence of illness.
Diet is vital when it comes to building up a child’s immune system, with identifying food intolerances, nutrient deficiencies and imbalances essential to resolving recurrent infections.
Food intolerances are more common in children than you may think, and may be affecting your child’s concentration, weight, gut function and skin health.
