At age five months, Linnea developed cold symptoms which seemed to worsen by the minute. Within hours her breathing became labored. I phoned her pediatrician, who saw her immediately in the office. Linnea was diagnosed as having Bronchialitis / Asthma, a lung illness common in children under two, and was admitted to a local hospital. To combat the illness, antibiotics, steroids, and bronchial dilators were administered. After three days and marked improvement, Linnea was released from the hospital. Within a week, the illness appeared to be completely cured and the pediatrician released Linnea to her normal activity. This was only the beginning of an eighteen-month nightmare for me and my family.
Two weeks later, Linnea’s baby-sitter called me for throughout this particular day, Linnea had developed a persistent, unproductive, croup-sounding cough. She again saw her pediatrician and was diagnosed as having croup. Again she was treated with antibiotics.
Throughout the following months, Linnea demonstrated daily congestion, a constant runny nose, chronic constipation, and a distinctive croup-sounding cough.
The nights seemed endless as I was forced to hold Linnea in an upright position so the baby could have some relief from her cough and so that we both might get a little sleep.
I tried every cough syrup and cold remedy that was safe to give a small child. I tried top onion packs, warm chamomile tea, eucalyptus rubs, and cool mist humidifier. Nothing relieved her symptoms. Finally, she would cough so hard she would vomit, sometimes large amounts of mucus, and sometimes her dinner. Linnea’s symptoms continued throughout the next eighteen months with little or no relief.
She has been seen by specialists. We have taken her to different hospitals and emergency rooms. She was tested for allergies, immune deficiencies, and even cystic fibrosis which all proved to be negative.
One day my sister called me. She told me about some nutritional supplements that she was having success with. I was anxious to try anything that might help. I began Linnea on the Healthy Systems™ products. I noticed results in my baby within a week. The runny nose was drying up. The eczema began to fade. The cough had completely ceased within two weeks. Within a month Linnea had normal bowel movements on a daily basis. She is completely off all prescription and non-prescription medications. I have continued her on her nutritional therapy. I thank God every day for my family’s health and well being. I also thank God for sending my sister Helen with an answer to my eighteen months of prayer.
p.s. Lennea has only suffered two minor cold/allergytype symptoms that only lasted for about four to five days and then they disappeared. But better than this, it was with no doctors, no antibiotics, and no steroids. All we did was increase the nutritional supplements for a short time to relieve her and help her immune system. Oh! Yes, we are very happy with Healthy Systems™ products and how much they have helped Linnea. She is a very happy well adjusted child ...enjoying life!!
