How to Support Your Immune System this Winter

What do you do when you are sick? What do you do when your child is sick? Last year, our son spiked a 40-41C fever a few days after Halloween.

Probiotics

Why are probiotics beneficial?

Probiotics, translated “for life”, refer to bacteria in the intestine considered beneficial to health. Two of the most important healthful bacteria are Lactobacillus acidophilus (specific to the small intestine) and Bifidobacterium bifidum (specific to the large intestine), but there are many other organisms to keep in mind. It is important to note that you have more bacteria in and on you than you have cells in your body and that the bacteria in your digestive tract weigh approximately 3lbs.
