Immunity Strengthening of Children by Means of a Natural Way

Autumn and Winter are in full swing, and so it comes the most suitable time for strengthening immunity of the organism. Let us have a look at the possiblities of its strengthening by means of herbs, aromatherapy and other natural ways, without chemical medicines and vitamins, which needlessly burden a little child organism. Then it can devote more power to the struggle with omnipresent viruses.

Organism is daily exposed to the attacks. It has to struggle with aliens, such as viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites. The main function of immune system is to recognize foreign particles and react to them. Microorganisms causing infections can be for example foreign substances (antigens), transplantable organs or tissues, but also tumors which are recognized as foreign to a body. The right body immunity then ensures defence against infections.

Nourishment is the essence

We can influence health of a child organism primarily with the structure of a regimen. The raw vegetables should be the essence, fruit, salads, wholegrain pastries, pulses, buckwheat, the brown rice, sprouts and tofu. We must not forget about the vegetable oils- olive, almond, sesame, flax. On the contrary, we should reduce cow milk products and meat.

We can indulge them maximally three times a week. We try to replace sugar with healthier variants such as for example grape or fruit sugar, honey, sirup of agave, barley, corn or rice malt.

 

Sea buckthorn

It is an excellent source of vitamins A, C, E and other valuable substances. It is available in the form of juice or sirup, children should take one half of a tea spoon per day from September to May.

Pumpkin seeds

Pumpkin seeds are the most plentiful source of natural zinc. Zinc is absolutely irreplaceble for the functions of all kinds of organs and the whole organism, however it is dependant on the sufficiency of vitamin A, because it does not activate without it- it is also otherwise.

Children from 1 to 6 years of age should take one half of a tea spoon of oil three times a week

Children from 6 to 10 years of age- one spoon of oil three times a week

Children from 10 to 15 years of age- one spoon of oil four times a week

Attention! There should be 12 hours break between giving sea buckthorn and pumpkin oil, because sea buckthorn contains lots of vitamin E and pumpkin seeds contains ferrum which completely destroys this vitamin which would be pity.

 

Flax oil

It contains non saturated fat acids and it should be included in any regimen.

Children from 1 to 6 years of age should take one half of a tea spoon of oil three times a week

Children from 6 to 10 years of age- one spoon of oil three times a week

Children from 10 to 15 years of age- one spoon of oil four times a week

 

Honey carrot strengthens organism

We need: 1 liter of carrot juice (preferably freshly squeezed or bought in bio quality), 250 g high quality honey (in case of alergy to bee products it is possible to replace it with sirup of agave, barley or rice malt).

Procedure: We have to mix well all these aforementioned ingredients, we pour them into a glass and keep them in a cold place. We give it to children two times a week one spoon before food for the period of 8 weeks.

 

Strengthening herbs

We can start to strengthen organism immunity at an early age. I recommend homeopaticum Silicea 9 ch for children from 6 months of age, we take two balls two times a day for the period of 3 months regularly. We must melt the balls in a child´s mouth or in a spoon of For example Coneflower (Echinacea purpurea) is an excellent remedy primarily for children (from 2,5 years of age) – it is Echinacea suitable in the form of tea or tincture.

It proves as a good remedy in combination with beta glukans which are medical strengthening substances from mushrooms – Oyster mushroom (Pleurotus ostreatus), Shiitake (Lentinula edodes), Auricularia auriculajudae and champignon. These remedies should be taken together incessantly for the period of 4 months.

 

Tincture from Echinacea

We need: We pour 3 dl with 40% of pure alcohol with one spoon of dried echinacea or two spoons of fresh echinacea (blooms, leaves, roots). We leave all in a warm place to soak for 14 days, we must not forget to shake it two times a day. Then we filter a tincture and pour into a glass bottle. We store it in a cold and dark place.

Children from 2 to 5 years of age take four drops of tincture two times a day into 1 dl of water

Children from 5 to 8 years of age take five drops of tincture two times a day into 1 dl of water

 

Tincture from Oyster mushroom (Pleurotus ostreatus)

We mix into a mash 60 grams of dried mushrooms and 200 grams of 40% pure alcohol. We pour the mixture into a two liter glass, close it well and put it in a shady warm place for 14 days. We turn the glass daily. Then we filter the mixture well, squeeze the rests of mushrooms and we fill the prepared tincture into the dark and lockable little glass bottles. It will last even two years when it is stored like this.

Children from 2 to 5 years of age take one drop of tincture two times a day into 1 dl of water

Children from 5 to 8 years of age take two drops of tincture two times a day into 1 dl of water

Tincture of echinacea and Oyster can be taken together, there is no need to have a break.

 

Child tea mixtures

We need: 1 part of the raspberry leaves, 1 part of the strawberry leaves, 1 part of the blackberry leaves, 1 part of the elderberry blossom

Procedure: We mix the herbs together, we prepate the tea so that we pour over two spoons of the mixture with 2 dl of boiling water and leave it soak for 10 minutes. Then we filter it and dilute it according to the age of the child.

Children up to 3 years of age – 1 tea spoon of tea into 2 dl of clean water

Children from 3 to 5 years of age – 2 tea spoons of tea into 2 dl of water

Children from 5 to 9 years of age – 3 tea spoons of tea into 2 dl of water

Then we do not have to dilute any more.

 

Flower fairy

Children from 5 to 9 years of age will get 3 tea spoons of already prepared tea into 2 dl of water

Then we do not have to dilute any more.

 

Aromatherapy

All etheric oils contain substances that strengthen organism immunity more or less they have antivirus and antibacteria effect. For these purposes I would recommend primarily essential oils of lavender, spruce, pine, tea tree, myrtle, thyme, eucalyptus. It is necessary to pay attention to quality when we choose etheric oils. There must be always a label on the small bottle, that it is 100% natural oil. If there is no label or no etiquette or for example natural out of 95%, we never buy it, the remaining 10% is namely synthetic, i.e. irritant and very detrimental to organism.

Instructions for using an aromalamp We pour 2,5 spoons of clean water into an aromalamp and add three up to four drops of chosen etheric oil. Then we light the tea candle, put it in a safe place and leave to scent through the room.

When you strengthen your immunity, do not forget about sufficent motion and sleeping.

When you stay two hours outside, that is minimum.

 

Strong immunity is the essence ofeverything!
