5 Practical Ways to Boost Your Child's Immunity

5 Practical Ways to Boost Your Child's Immunity

5 practical ways to boost your child's immunity

Children are as vulnerable as they are adorable. Their immune system is not as strong as that of adults, so they are easy victims to environment borne diseases like cold, cough, influenzas and other infections. Here are 5 practical and easy ways in which you can boost your child's immunity and make sure that your role as a parent is sufficiently fulfilled.

1. Decide judiciously what he is supposed to eat and drink

Your child's daily diet must contain a lot of fruits, vegetables, juices, organic foods and proteins. Healthy fats like butter, pastured eggs, coconut etc. Are also essential as they help in absorbing important vitamins like vitamins a, d, e, k and others. Even your child's water intake should be at an optimal level. Processed food and excessive sugar intake should be avoided as they add to your child's calorie count.

2. Get your child to exercise

Regular exercise is a must. It may include running, swimming, jumping or simply strolling. Screen time should be limited as much as possible as those video games and i-pads are robbing your child of his immunity. Make sure your child spends a few hours outside in the sun so as to absorb vitamin d that is obtained from sunlight, for his immunity.

3. Ensure a clean and hygienic environment for your child

You must make sure that that your child learns to keep himself clean. Teach him to wash his hands whenever necessary and tell him not to sneeze and cough in a way that spreads germs. Maintain a clean and healthy environment in and around your home but make sure that you don't shoo away the good bacteria that prevent diseases.

4. Cut down the stress levels of your child

It is very important for you to recognise and eliminate stress from your child's life to ensure immunity for him. Do not force your will upon your child and let him follow his heart. Help him relax if he is stressed and talk to him patiently about things that are worrying him. Maintain a healthy and loving environment in your family to help your child grow.

5. Ensure you child gets adequate rest

Make sure that your child gets adequate amount of comfortable sleep. It is important for you to make your child understand the benefits of sleeping early. This not only increases his/her immunity but also helps him/her to stay attentive and focussed.

If it's not associated with fever it's likely to be due to allergy. Then it needs avoidance of allergens and symptomatic treatment.

I think child is having nephrotic syndrome. If it occurs between 1 to 8 years it responds to treatment. As the age is less than 1 year it may need a renal biopsy.

My daughter is about to be 9 years old. Since the age of 5/6 years she has been seen rubbing her genital portion. What could be the likely cause and what as a parent should we do?

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
Finding your child touching or rubbing his genitals can be very disturbing to parents who mistakenly believe that small children don't have any sexual feelings. These parents may consider the behavior a bad habit, but most of the time, it's not. Babies discover their genitals just as they learn about other body parts -- by reaching for them -- and then learn that they are a source of pleasurable sensations. The innocent repetition of what feels good is an entirely normal part of the process of self-discovery and play. Yet many adults harbor conflicted feelings about masturbation, viewing it as somehow immoral or unhealthy. When parents overreact to genital exploration, a toddler can conclude there is something wrong with him.So as a parent never react negatively when you find her rubbing her genitals but at that time try to distract her mind in some other activity.

Immunity Booster For children i.e. Swarn Prashna

Ayurveda, Dehradun
Immunity Booster For children i.e. Swarn Prashna

Swarn Prashana:

Since ancient times, our ancestors passed their best practices of holistic lifestyle to their next generations. Over a period of time they became a ritual that got integrated into their day to day life. These series of rituals are known as samskaras. They are connected with the major events of life such as pregnancy, childbirth, naming ceremony, education, marriage, etc. These samskaras enables us to live a complete fulfilling physical and spiritual life.

Swarna Prashana is one  of sixteen samskaras mentioned in ancient texts for paediatrics. It is an unique method to build long lasting health and intellect naturally without leaving any harmful side effects.

Swarna prashana is an unique method of giving swarna bhasma (gold ash) mixed with honey and ghee that is fortified with arka, an herbal extracts like vacha, brahmi, shankupushpi, etc. to children orally.

This process promotes overall growth in a natural way. Due to its broader benefits, it is not only useful for normal children, its much more beneficial for children with special needs such as autism, learning difficulties, attention deficit disorder, hyper activity, delayed milestones, etc.

 

Administering small quantities of Swarna causes:
Medha Vardhana – Improvement in intelligence
Agni Vardhana – Improvement in digestion strength
Bala Vardhana – Improvement in strength and immunity
Ayushya Vardhana – Improvement in life expectancy
Mangala, Punya – Auspicious
Vrushya – Aphrodisiac
Grahapaha – Relieves bad evils.
By administering Swarna for a month time, child becomes super-intelligent.
By administering for up to six months, person becomes Shruta Dhara – can remember whatever she hears.

Hi my children s are active and healthy. My son is 7years weight 20kg. My daughter 9years 30kg. Just want clear that they are in normal weight or abnormal any healthy drinks for childrens and as well as for me with milk.

DNB Paediatrics, DCH, MBBS

Hello lybrate-user, the weight parameters of both your children are in the normal range. Since your daughter maybe approaching the pubertal age group soon, that's when the growth spurt happens so make sure you give a healthy balanced diet comprising of more of proteins like milk and milk products, soyabean, eggs, paneer etc in their daily meals. Also exercising is a must. 3 major meals and two snacks will be helpful in providing adequate nutrition. You could give vitd and calcium supplements to meet the daily requirements. Hope that helps.

My daughter had met with an accident at the age five had injured in righ side forehead, now she is nine years old, scar is now more visible looking odd, kindly suggest a remedy for this? Is plastic surgery is advisable?

MCh - Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, MS - General Surgery, MBBS

The only solution for the scar is scar revision surgery. Usually scar revision is done in stages to improve the condition of the scar interspersed with creams, massages and sometimes lasers. You should understand that scars can be improved and made to look better and cannot be made to disappear.
