Prepared for the unexpected: How Henri beat C. diff
Henri and his sister, Lucienne From the time he was born, Henri has been very reactive — to everything. As a baby, he was allergic to milk and soy, which led to weeping eczema all over his body.

At age 3, he had a circumcision because of the repeated UTIs. At age 4, a sinus infection spread to his eye orbit. Every sunscreen on the market gave him (and still gives him) a rash. At age 5, a bug bite on his ear led to a cartilage infection that required ant...
