As every parent knows, having a sick child is certainly not fun and can impact on the health and wellbeing of the whole family. If your child is getting sick, with regular colds and flus, or is susceptible to eczema, asthma, wheezing, sneezing, hayfever or prone to allergies, then make it a priority to boost up their immunity and bring them back to balance.
* There are natural medicines that work by providing symptomatic relief naturally as well as addressing underlying immune imbalances that can cause our children to feel under the weather.
* Taking care of your children’s digestive health will also assist in promoting a strong, healthy immune system.
* By strengthening the gut barrier, the immune system is able to respond with greater effectiveness.
* Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that are important in keeping the digestive system in balance and supporting a healthy immune system.
There are also many dietary and lifestyle tips that can support strong immunity:
*Increasing fresh fruit and vegetables, proteins, healthy fats as part of a well-balanced diet.
*Reduce inflammatory foods such as sugar, white breads, dairy, cakes and soft drinks that may suppress immune function and trigger reactions in sensitive children.
*Ensure children are getting enough rest and sleep.
*Encourage more outdoor activity and less ‘screen time’.
*Eliminating environmental triggers that may be exacerbating your child’s condition.
