THREE NATURAL WAYS TO HEAL ALLERGIES FROM THE INSIDE OUT
Here we go. March, the wonderful month where plants are beginning to bloom, and families spend more time outdoors. It’s the start of allergy season, or more like ‘unnecessarily suffering season for my child’. This does not have to be the case.
Take back the season. A few simple remedies can offer a lot of allergy relief. Good health begins at home with high quality food and nutrition, a non-toxic environment, minimal stress and emotional nurturing.
Diet and overall health can make a big difference when it comes to allergies!
Any child can develop an allergy. It happens when their immune system overreacts to a substance that’s normally harmless. Genetics can play a role in the development of allergies, but for children and adults alike, healing often begins with the gut.
Children need whole foods to nourish and cleanse the body, and activate and support the immune system. Choose whole food sources like fruits and veggies, beans and legumes and grains like brown rice to provide much needed vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, enzymes, amino acids, and other nutrients. Reduce processed foods, sugar, and soda as those choices can weaken the immune system. Avoiding would be best, but alas we are all human.
Use the power of nature for a gentle effective allergy relief.
An allergy is an over-reaction of the immune system. Most times, the outcome is sniffling, sneezing, congestion, itchy eyes, coughing, and other symptoms.
Everything a body needs to combat allergies can be found in nature. Over-the-counter medications do not get to the root cause, they give quick relief and help suppress the symptoms of allergies. On the other hand, natural remedies for allergies can give both relief and restore balance to a child’s immune system without the negative side effects found in conventional allergy medications.
The question is what is safe and what is most effective for the individual. Homeopathic medicine is a safe alternative to conventional medicine, and is derived from natural substances found in nature. Keeping that in mind, homeopathy uses micro doses of a substance to stimulate the body’s own healing mechanism.
Provide an environment of minimal stress and emotional nurturing.
Make the home as healthy as possible. Incorporate routine sleep schedules, active time and allow creativity to shine, this will provide building blocks for a happy, healthy child.
As an adult we are conditioned to take on anything thrown our way. Children need to focus on what matters so they can grow and learn to flex their mental muscles.
Life is chaotic, but taking a more holistic approach to home life can strengthen and stimulate immunity and support your child’s natural health and wellness. As parents, you are the main providers of holistic health care for your kids. You know your child’s body, mind, and emotions better than anyone else.
Implement changes focusing on these three primary building blocks of health, and you will begin to see changes in your life from the inside out.
