"Yes" to supplements and "No" to childhood surgery

At less than a year old, our daughter Alyse began getting frequent ear infections.  The doctor gave her antibiotics.  Less than a month later she was sick again.  Her nose ran from September through March, she had dark circles under her eyes and was always tired.  Two years later she was referred to a specialist who recommended tubes in her ears.  I asked if we could postpone the surgery for a month and try nutrition.  The doctor reluctantly agreed.

Her program included:  1 tsp Instant Protein, 3 Alfalfa tablets (crushed), 1 Chewable Vita C (crushed), 1 tsp Liqui-Lea and 1 Calcium Complex (crushed), 1/4 cup orange juice and 1 tsp honey.  I mixed the 'mush' every morning and spoon fed it to her.  One month later the doctor found her ears free of fluid behind the eardrum with no need for tubes.  She continued the vitamins and remained free of ear infections, viral infections, etc.  Her nose stopped running, she had more energy and her disposition improved.
