Simple ways to Boost your Child Immunity – Go Natural

” Developing & Developed are the keywords on which now parents have to understand to work upon.

The efforts to develop a child immunity can be fruitful more in Developing stage.  There’s a great opportunity to set the stage for improved health and resilience when the immune system is under development.

Further, the role of our lifestyle and the quality of food we eat are the most important to work upon anyone’s immune system.”

Let ’em Get Dirty

Majority of ‘First Time Parents’ reacts overprotective to their child and create a dome around them.  For them, I would guide that “Once a child has been exposed to dirt and germs, the immune system responds by trying to expel those bacteria from the body, which strengthens immunity.
Majority of antibacterial soaps, cleansers, and gels contain the chemical triclosan, which some researchers suspect of contributing to the development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Instead, use a natural antibacterial gel or make one, by combining witch hazel or alcohol, tea tree oil, and lavender essential oil.

 

Laugh Out Loud (Don’t feel shy to show you this aspect)

“You can give your kids the best food and nutrition, but if they have underlying sadness, their immune system will suffer,” remarks Sheppard. “When you’re happy and when you laugh, your brain releases chemicals that increase immunity.”
‘We should try to teach our kids like the way they want to.  The best worked out way is to make them feel that they have total control on their own body’

Focus on High-Quality Foods

Fruits and veggies have a wealth of protective phytochemicals that enhance immune cell function and protect against disease. In a study published in the Journal of Epidemiology & Community Health, kids that ate the most fruit had a 38 percent lower risk of cancer later in life. Berries, cherries, plums, and pomegranates are among the most powerful immune-boosting fruits. For veggies, eat more dark leafy greens, tomatoes, carrots vegetables such as broccoli and cauliflower. Also, emphasize whole grains and healthy fats such as those found in nuts, seeds and avocado, advises Fuhrman.

Sugar-laden calories depress the infection-fighting activity of white blood cells, says Dr. Alan R. Gaby, of Concord, New Hampshire, author of the textbook, Nutritional Medicine. Even natural sweeteners such as honey and juice have similar effects when consumed in excess, he says. Try healthy options like pomegranate and kiwi fruit salad; trail mix with raw almonds; dried cranberries and air-popped popcorn; and hummus with red pepper strips and baby carrots for dipping.

Pinpoint Allergies

“Whenever there is extra inflammation, the body has less available energy to keep the immune system functioning as well as it should,” says Dr. Fred Pescatore, a New York author of The Allergy & Asthma Cure. Food allergies and sensitivities can suppress the immune system by increasing inflammation in the body and call for a consultation with a health specialist.“It’s like putting the wrong type of fuel in the car; it hinders your performance.”

    When parents are getting too much into sanitizing, protecting their kids from falling sick in different ways, you brought out few basic and natural things that we forget or say take it for granted. First point is very important. Letting them get dirty. True. If we keep on sanitizing them then how their body will build the immunity?

  9. Pooja Kawatra says: July 8, 2018 at 3:22 pm

    Such an important topic often overlooked by the parents and caretakers. In the hope to save their kids from getting ill, they, in fact, don’t even allow them to develop the much-needed immunity. Well curated information, Gurjeet!

  12. Princy Khurana says: July 7, 2018 at 4:14 pm

    Even I try to give my child high quality fresh food and we do laugh and cry both are hearts out.

  16. Sharvari Paivaidya Mehan says: July 7, 2018 at 10:57 am

    I agree with not using hand sanitisers 50 times at home because when they are out they will be dealing with germs and then would not know how to deal with them. Fruits and veggies are key to their development internally.
    Well written
