If the right type...: It's not that abnormal nor unusual to get 3 colds in 2 months. Unfortunately the average doctor won't have much knowledge about how to evaluate or treat you. But this IS evidence your immune system could be stronger. An integrative MD or a Naturopath will assess you for nutrient deficiencies (such as low zinc), poor diet (too much sugar),parasites,too much stress etc. and help boost your immunity.
