8 Tips for Building a Child’s Immune Function

Parents can set a good example by making Good Health a Priority in the home. Regular visits to a Licensed Chiropractor are an excellent way to Improve Health and and Wellness for the entire family. Below are 7 Tips for Building Up Your Child’s Immune System Naturally and fighting off those nasty viruses.

  • Adequate Sleep: Getting enough sleep can be difficult while juggling homework, sports, after school activities and friends. Sleep is critical for keeping immune systems strong and healthy. Aim for at least 10 hours per night for kids 12 and under and at least 8.5 hours for older children.
  • Eating A Healthy Diet: Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables that are rich in vitamins and nutrients to boost your immune system. Vitamins D and E are particularly important for reducing your risk of illness and infections. Dynamic Greens are a great option both you and your kids will enjoy.
  • Regular Exercise: Exercise helps your body to identify and fight off sickness more quickly. Studies have shown that people who exercise regularly are less apt to get colds.
  • Exposure to Germs: Though it may seem counterintuitive that germ exposure can help keep children healthy, some exposure to bacteria can help to build a stronger immune system. Some experts believe that living in a more sterile environment decreases a body’s ability to fight allergies.
  • Proper Hand Washing: Cleaning hands after a bathroom break, before a meal, after activities and right after school can reduce illness up to 50%. Washing hands often with soap and water should be a part of your everyday routine.
  • Stress Reduction: Chronic stress is hard on your body and the demands of schoolwork and peer pressure can be very stressful. Stress reduces the amount of white blood cells and leaves you more likely to become sick.
  • Chiropractic Care: Regular Chiropractic Care can reduce stress and boost immunity. Restoring proper alignment in your spine can enhance your body’s immune system and ability to fight off illness. A Licensed Chiropractor can treat patients of all ages to improve nerve function, immunity and wellness.
  • If you find yourself or your child feeling run down we recommend adding a Colostrum supplement until you are back on track.
