Six Natural Ways To Boost Your Child’s Immune System
2) HYDRATION: Drinking plenty of fluids (H20 is best) is key to preventing infection. Staying hydrated keeps mucous membranes moist, which lowers the chance of a cold or flu taking hold in your nose or lungs.
3) FRUITS & VEGGIES: Carrots, green beans, kiwi, oranges, strawberries: They all contain immunity-boosting goodies. Eating a balanced diet, including healthy snacks, can ensure adequate nutrition and also keep the digestive system healthy. A balanced diet should include at least 5-7 servings of fruits and veggies and below in processed and refined foods.
4) STRESS LESS: Just like you, your children can experience harmful stress that weighs on their immune system. Children still need time to play and enjoy their childhood. Help your kids to manage their time so homework gets completed but relaxation and fun don’t get buried beneath the schoolbooks.
6) GET ADJUSTED! Spinal abnormalities called “vertebral subluxations” interfere with the functioning of the nervous system by placing pressure on the nerves. When your spine is misaligned, your immune system can suffer. Getting regular chiropractic adjustments can make you and your child’s immune systems up to 200% stronger!
If you can boost your immune system by following many of these suggestions, you are much less likely to become sick. Stay healthy and happy this school year!
