My young daughter used to get sick all the time; fever, flu, and colds. I never thought much of it until I chanced upon the fact not all children fall sick. At least, not regularly like mine did anyway.
After some deep-dive research and meeting a pediatric expert, I managed to turn my daughter’s health around. Some lifestyle adjustments had to be made to improve her immune system over the span of five months, but it was well worth it.
Here’s what you can do to improve your child’s immune system:
Restructured the diet
Sugar and additives are hard on your child’s immune system. Take food allergies, for example. Inflammation will occur and your child’s digestion will suffer, which weakens its ability to fight off invading virus and bacterias. It’s sort of the same thing when your child consumes more sugar and additives than he can take.
Some clinical trials also suggest that sugar suppresses immunity, so reduce your child’s intake of secondary sugars and additives as much as you can, and get a doctor to perform an allergy test on him at least once.
Feed your children wholesome and nutritious foods, such as leafy greens, fruits, eggs, chicken, beans, fish, and various superfoods. I’m almost certain you’ll see improvements in a matter of weeks.
Give your child plenty of downtimes
Children experience stress in the same way adults do. When their schedule is jam-packed with school, tuition, and other extracurricular classes, they get stressed—leading to a rise in cortisol and adrenaline levels. When that happens, the function of your child’s immune system will be compromised.
Let your child relax and engage in creative play. He doesn’t need to be learning all the time; that karate class can wait.
Supplement the diet
Your child’s immune system can use some help. You can supplement it with a delicious milk formula such as Pediasure Watch Me Grow. It contains 25 essential vitamins and minerals that fortify the immune system and in turn, reduces sick days.
