Your Question:

Please, which of your products will you recommend for someone suffering and recovering from Guillian barre syndrome? My son had the syndrome 3 days after taken malaria injection. He was treated with IV Immunoglobulin 20g for 6 days. He is on physiotherapy now.


Zara’s Answer:

I am sorry to hear of your son’s condition. Thankfully it is a condition which will get better but in the meantime it is very good to support recovery and strengthen the whole immune system.

You are right that looking at gut microbiome is the first thing to do to strengthen the immune system. You don’t say how old your son is, if he is 0-12 I would use the GOO for YOU. If he is over 12 I would use the Bio-Live Gold. His diet should include a good amount of vegetables if this is possible as they help the beneficial microbes live well in the gut. Inulin is a vegetable fibre which acts as a prebiotic food for the beneficial microbes.

I also suggest looking into a Beta-D-Glucan supplement and tumeric/curcumin. Beta-D-Glucans has been shown to modulate and strengthen the immune system but does not over stimulate it and a good tumeric/curcumin supplement will help with the excess inflammation that occurs when the immune system is out of balance. Also it is important to make sure to get enough Vitamin C and D3 .

I hope this is helpful. Do contact me again if you have further questions.
