Boost your Child’s Immunity to Protect against Illness
A Healthy Immune System for a Healthy Child
There can be no greater worry for a parent than seeing their child sick. Parents do everything they can to protect their children, yet protection from germs seems next to impossible. Some children seem to attract the common infection far more than others. So often it happens that a child goes to school only to come back with an infection caught from the neighbouring. Or even the slightest weather change sends him/her into a sneezing fit.
At home parents can still try to create a germ-free and clean atmosphere for the children, but once they hit the playground, all bets are off. Now children and germs are a common sight, yet we often observe that one child seems to fall ill a little more often than his friends. If this is the case, it may be due to a weak immune system.
It’s the Immune System that’s weak not the Child
Many times if a child falls ill frequently, he is labelled as weak or sensitive, when actually it’s just the immune system that needs to be strengthened. Further, parents tend to rush to the nearest doctor to get their child treated for whatever infection he may have picked up, exposing his young body to a whole lot of medicine. And it’s understandable as no parent can see their child suffer even for a moment.
- Decreased cognitive development
- Weaker muscles due to low physical activity
- Decreased stamina and lethargy
- Increased sick days and absenteeism in school
- The feeling of social exclusion
- The belief that they are weaker than their peers
- Social awkwardness due to increased absenteeism
Other than this, childhood is meant for fun times at the park and running around with other children. When a child stays consistently ill, he is more home-bound and isolated from his friends. This can seriously affect his ability to relate topeople later on in life and make friends. In addition, consistent illness can further weaken the immune system and make him more susceptible to ailments in the future.
