Every year when spring arrives, many parents are filled with stress and tension. They know that with the change of seasons comes more allergies and illness. Although it may be tempting to turn to over-the-counter or prescription medications right away, there are other steps you can take to help your child this spring.
Immune challenges and allergies are more prevalent than ever before, due to birth trauma and early use of antibiotics in so many infants and young children.
Steroid-based medications are so easily and readily available over-the-counter or with recurring prescriptions.
But parents, there is a way OUT of this neuro-immune-medication storm that brews every spring (and likely fall as well) for your family. And the way out is IN to a more natural and neurologically focused health plan for your family.
One important step you can take is to get your child's nervous system evaluated by a trained pediatric chiropractor. When the nervous system is functioning properly, the immune system is better able to do its job. However, if the nervous system is not functioning properly, it can weaken the immune system and make your child more susceptible to allergies and illness.
Another important step you can take is to make sure your child gets enough sleep. This is important because sleep is essential for a strong immune system. When children don't get enough sleep, they are more likely to get sick. So, even during busy times at school or with extracurricular activities, it is important to make sure your child gets enough rest.
Finally, you can help your child this spring by cutting back on or eliminating sugar, dairy, and food dyes and preservatives. These substances can weaken the immune system and make your child more prone to allergies and sickness. Eating healthy foods and drinking plenty of water will help keep your child's immune system strong this spring.
By taking these steps, you can help your child this spring allergy season. Getting your child's nervous system evaluated by a trained pediatric chiropractor, making sure your child gets enough sleep, and eliminating sugar, dairy, food dyes, and preservatives from their diet will all help strengthen their immune system. With a strong immune system in place, your child will be better equipped to fight off allergies and illness this spring season.
