Constant colds, sinus infections and stomach flus. He has literally been healthy less than a week since Christmas. He receives supplements and organic, healthy food. He started preschool in September so the germs are everywhere but when I discuss this with the other parents of the children in his class, they are not seeing nearly as much illness as we are experiencing.
