Chronic Infections

My client has presented with: mastitis, five throat infections including strepp throat & tonsilittis, flu, sinusitis, conjuctivitis and viral menengitis - all within the last nine months. All of these infections occured within 3-4 weeks of her giving birth to her first child. She is also low in Vit D, Vit K and iron. I suspect she picked up a bug in the hospital which is travelling around her system. Does anyone have any ideas?

I am not qualified to diagnose by tongue or pulse

I am not a fully qualified TCM practicioner. My practice is primarily reflexology & auriculartherapy incorporating accupressure and some moxibustion.

I strongly suggest that you

I strongly suggest that you refer this patient to a properly trained practitioner.  Because of the strong diagnostic tools within Chinese Medicine, practitioners can begin to make sense out of these complicated cases without chasing after random symptoms/conditions.

Infections all involve fluid or mucous

Thank you for your suggestions. To clarify my first post, the mastitis was the first infection to occur (last Nov) which then transmorphed to the other infections, each in turn. The last & most recent was the menegitis. All infections are within a fluid or mucous area of the body. Other condition is PCOS & had glandular fever when 16 leaving susceptible to thraot infections ongoing.
