If You Want To Improve Your Kids Immunity – Ask Yourself These 5 Questions

How often do your kids fall sick in a year? Random fevers are completely avoidable. There are many children who rarely fall sick, and there is no reason why your child cannot be one of them..

Studies suggest that viruses keep developing newer strains to counter the effect of medicines and disinfectants. So better choice is to enhance the overall immunity of kids, so ask these questions to self-everyday.

Do you give him a glass of water first thing in the morning?

Drinking water on an empty stomach purifies the colon, making it easier for your body to absorb nutrients; early morning water consumption increases the daily production of new blood and muscle cells and helps in bowl movement.

Drinking chilled water in the morning can boost your daily metabolism by up to 24%, it clears and moisturizes skin and helps to purge toxins from the blood, which helps keep your skin glowing, moisturized and clear.

If you can add lemon juice with chilled water then it is even better.

Are you strict with kids on basic hygiene factors ?

Are you pampering your kids during morning rush and ignoring the fact that they are not brushing teeth regularly. Brushing teeth reduces the bacteria before exposing them to food. Also you need to make sure kids potty routine are regular and they are taking the bath properly using disinfectants.  It is good habit to wash hands regularly before meals; even if you don’t soap it is fine. Last thing before sleep should be brushing of teeth.

Do you provide good nutrients to kids and not dependent on Sweets, White bread and Maida stuff?

fruitsThe trick is to play with right stuff for kids and add healthy ingredients in their diet by doing some modern innovations. Choose easy-to-digest foods. Intelligent foods include fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains and light dairy products. If you choose fresh, whole foods that are not altered by processing, then your meal is going to wake up the intelligence of nature and convert quickly to better immune system.

Healthy Ingredients are Fruits, Carrots, Garlic, Soups, Green vegetables mixed in cheese. Beans, lentils and Chickpeas are very good for immune system and should be part of the diet every day.

Nuts and seeds provide vitamin E, fiber, magnesium, zinc and healthy fats and can be mixed in so many daily food items – with vegetables, rice, puddings, and chocolates.

Do you let them enjoy while playing without being hygiene Freak or your children are being raised in “Over hygienic” conditions?

Childhood is for getting dirty and it does good for body and soul. Dirt has bacteria which activates neurons that produce serotonin, a natural anti-depressant. In other words, dirt helps make you feel happy. Many researches have shown that early exposure to the naturally occurring microbes in soil help build stronger, more disease-resistant kids.

Without enough exposure to different bacteria and microbes, how immune system will learn to recognize and protect its own cells. This could be a reason for overprotective kids felling sick more than other kids. The outgoing kids enjoy more; laugh more and hence happier and hence healthier. They also become more adventurous, more self-motivated, and they are better able to understand and assess risk in life. So hence I agree “Daag Acchey hain”

Do you believe in Indian Ayurvedic system and provide them with Ayurvedic supplements?

Chyawanprash is a great Ayurveda supplement and its benefits are proven from centuries and many researches are done in recent years with proven benefits.
