I have a friend whose kid is always sick...like quite low immune system. Any suggestion to improve their resistance and not fall sick so often?

I gave my kid Chlorella http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chlorella supplement, suppose to help built immune system and remove heavy metals from the body. Another supplement is Spirulina http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spirulina_%28dietary_supplement%29. He still do occasionally get sick, but it is like once every 2 months.

I also have a serumi ionizer running in my room, suppose to kill germs. Actually, I am not sure weather it works or not. Just that lots of articles says it works.

When he was 3years old, my son was always falling sick due to the "childcare centre syndrome". No sooner than when he recovered from one bout of cold would he contract another one. And when he coughs at night, he can literally last the entire night.

At 4, I started him on an intensive swimming programme. By 6, he was practically swimming about 2 hrs every night, and he was cold-free for months. So swimming really helped him by strengthening his lungs and resistance.

Where u buy the bullet types? If easy to consume, that's the best solution. Maybe we should do a mass order and try to get discount from the supplier. Who wants to join? How many bullets you want? (alamak... sound a bit like some jihad group)

Elder son used to be sick every month.
After a change in 'lifestyle' his last doctor visit was about half a year ago.
Now he
- swims weekly
- cuts down on snacking
- sleeps in non-aircon environment
- eats original flavour cod liver oil.
