Hello. My 2 yr old child catches cough and cold every month. His cough has phelgm and needs to be given antibiotics almost every time.
I give him soaked anjeer every morning and even tulsi leaves to eat to build his immunity but nothing seems to help. Pls suggest some remedy that I can do on daily basis to avoid his cough. Thanks.

Dear Rasna
Your son only needs to build a strong immunity. Well, Give him 1 teaspoon of Honey, add some ginger juice, a pinch of Cinnamon, a pinch of Cardamom powder and a bit of Black pepper. Give this mixture 2 to 3 times in a day. One time before going to bed. I advise you please take care of doses as he is only 2 years old. So take very small doses of each Ingredient. And boil Basil leaves in water and give 2 tablespoon 2 times in day. I repeat, please take care of doses. Also take a good care of his diet.
