I have two children: a daughter and a son. Like every loving mother, I care about their health. Unfortunately, the ecological situation in the country wants the best, viruses and bacteria are now very strong, and many people come to be treated with antibiotics, which are very harmful for the children’s organism.
About how you can restore the immune system, I have repeatedly asked our local pediatrician. But, unfortunately, I did not hear a sensible answer. She is still so young and inexperienced that she cannot answer my questions. But we became friends with our nurse, she often helped us when the doctor was not there, and she would call for the vaccine and tell her, and she would simply advise a drug that would really help.
When asked how to strengthen her immune system and be resistant to viruses, our Oksana advised us to take immunomodulators. They help strengthen the immune system, make it less vulnerable to viruses and various kinds of irritants.
But it was not about drugs, but about natural ones. The fact is that medicinal immunomodulators act on everyone in different ways, and we cannot take risks when it comes to a child! They can become addictive, and they simply will not help, if they help at all.
They are easy to take, it is even a simple vitamin complex, but is it really effective? Will there be an allergic reaction? Will there be any serious problems after taking them or contraindications?
It is worth remembering that the child’s immunity is a very fragile system that is very easy to break and to harm. But besides chemical immunomodulators there are also natural ones. They act on the children’s body gently and carefully, adhering to hormonal balance. These are herbs: wheatgrass, lungwort, chicory, nettle, yarrow. But herbs should be treated carefully.
Honey. For myself, I chose an immunomodulator such as honey. It is tasty and healthy. The daughter is a very big sweet tooth, and eats it with spoons. But here it is worth being careful, because honey causes allergies and is contraindicated for children under one year old. We did not show any allergies, and little by little I gave the youngest child when he was still nine months old. In fact, honey is a storehouse of vitamins. When we have a sore throat, we drink milk with honey, and we are less likely to get sick.
Propolis. This is a famous and popular beekeeping product. It generates human defenses, helps to cope with such dangerous pathogens of viruses as herpes, influenza, candidiasis. It is found in many medicines. But we can use it in the composition of ointments, as tinctures, in balls.
Onion garlic. Previously, my daughter did not really love, but now she can eat onions and garlic, both raw and stewed. The main thing is to submit it unobtrusively and in a reasonable dose. Naturally, we all know that onions and garlic are resistant to viruses and pathogens, so I advise adults and children to use it in order to be healthy. If someone is ill with us, I take the garlic, press it through the garlic box, put it on a saucer in my room so that the garlic can kill the virus.
Birch juice. It is unique for its healing properties, has a positive effect on metabolism, strengthens the immune system. Due to the active substances, a huge amount of vitamins, birch sap acts as a fortifying agent. This drink is very useful for children to drink, only you have to make sure of its naturalness or collect it yourself.
Tea with raspberry leaves. My children and I gather both linden and raspberry leaves, blackberries, strawberries, and strawberries. We dry, as it should be, in a bright place, but not in the sun. It is very wonderful in the winter to brew these fragrant leaves and recall pleasant summer moments. Such teas supply the body with beneficial substances, vitamins and trace elements.
And what natural immunomodulators do you know and how do you protect the immune system?
