Sure, the issue of strengthening the body’s defenses worries most mothers. Someone chooses the easy way – spending crazy amounts of money on immunomodulating drugs, the rest use folk remedies.
If you choose from these two – I still closer to the second option. I offer for your consideration the most common ways to improve the immunity of a child without taking immunomodulators.
It is scientifically proven that garlic contains substances – phytoncides that help the body fight viruses. I do not argue, the number of children who voluntarily agree to eat these vegetables, tends to zero. However, it is not necessary to eat garlic, you can simply place a few plates with its teeth in the room, and explain to the child that this is from vampires.
And one friend of mine went further – she took a container from a chocolate egg toy, made a lot of holes in it, and put inside sliced garlic cloves, and hung such aroma containers near the child’s crib, and during periods of epidemics her son walks into the garden with such a pendant around the neck.
In our family with the arrival of winter, dogrose infusion replaces compotes. So that the daughter did not guess about the replacement, I add sugar to it and call it compote. I do not brew these fruits in a thermos, but grind them in a coffee grinder. After that, simply pour the powder with boiling water and wait 10-20 minutes.
If you bother with the fruits of a completely reluctant, for sale is packaged tea from the hips. I tried several times, in principle, I am pleased with it – after brewing there is a specific fatty film, which confirms that the rosehip is still present in the sachets.
Cooking is even easier than compote – I crush berries with sugar and pour boiling water over it. Yes, you have to add a lot of sugar, but otherwise the drink turns out to be sour, which may not coincide with your child’s taste preferences. If sugar is not in your favor, it can be replaced with honey, it will be even more useful.
They can be used both in the form of fresh juices, and in a clean, chopped version. Remember that fresh fasting, it is better to give the enemy, even then he suffers from diseases of the gastrointestinal tract. Also, do not forget that after half an hour after the preparation of the juice of vitamin C in it is two times less, so do not hesitate with the use. By the way, this vitamin does not belong to heat-resistant – you should not heat the juice and fruit.
Fresh juice should be diluted with water at least in a 1: 1 ratio. Beware of allergic reactions, and then one of my friends had to somehow carry her daughter to the ARC (Dermatovenerologic Dispensary), in order to prove to everyone that the rash on the face is not contagious, and this is just a reaction to orange juice.
Food alone is not enough, it should be combined with an active lifestyle. During periods of epidemics, of course, it is not worth visiting places of mass gathering of people, but nobody canceled walks in the fresh air.
Do not forget after each walk to thoroughly wash your hands and face with soap and rinse the child’s spout with saline. If public places cannot be avoided, pre-lubricate the baby’s nostrils with oxolinic ointment, chlorophyllipt, or any fat cream. For completeness of sensations, you can give a couple more droplets of the oily solution chlorphillipt inside, in order to eliminate infections in the throat.
And how do you strengthen the child’s immunity?
