Allergy in children — the scourge of the modern generation. Not many people can say, "My child is not allergic." How to organize life, including nutrition, child allergy? Should he live in a sterile environment or contact with the outside world may eventually become safer? What are the different methods of getting rid of various types of allergies? These questions help us answer MD, author of the methods of treatment of overweight Golden Eagle ®, physician reflexologist Mariyat Mukhina.
— Mariyat, why now all children suffer from allergies?
It is very difficult to answer this question. The development of allergies can be affected by many different factors. Starting with the fact that we always drink some drugs, including during pregnancy and lactation. And finishing unwholesome food products and bad environment. You have to understand that allergies — this immune deficiency, because it is the link in depressed immunity, which blocks the production of antibodies. Excess antibody affects its own organs and tissues.
— That is not necessary to drink the medication during pregnancy and the child will not be an allergy?
Any extremes are harmful. No need to give up any treatment prescribed by a doctor, but abusing drugs is not worth it. For example, antibiotics for any drink a cold or cough. Or take vitamins while eating dumplings. It's better to diversify your diet to vitamins and essential minerals through the consumption of food. No need to eat fast food, eat a lot of fried foods and sweets during pregnancy. Everybody knows it, but then sometimes it tyayayayanet. For the health of the child is necessary to limit myself.
— Here the child is born and, despite our best efforts, he's allergic. What to feed him?
First, try as much as possible to breastfeed. Of course, if there is such a possibility. In breast milk contain extremely useful for the kid connection — immunoglobulins, which strengthen and protect his immune system. In artificial mixtures do not. It would be ideal to feed the baby to a year, but if this is not possible, then at least six months. Secondly, you need to understand — what the baby allergy. It will soon realize the color of mother baby cheeks — what specific foods cause he has allergies. These are the foods you need to avoid.
— Therefore, these products should not be given to him for the rest of your life?
No, I would not say so. First, rule out a later start to give very small portions. The body starts to get used to the baby to the allergen and no longer react to it. This process is called "desensitization" — the administration of a low dose of allergen. Sometimes you could get rid of allergies. And from either — a cat, a dog, pollen, etc.
— And what advice constantly wash the floors, clean the animals, plants and carpets from the house of allergy?
The sterile environment only weakens the body. A person simply need to deal with different alien agents to train your immune system. Without exercise any authority, be it muscle or brain weakens and reduces its reserves. This applies in full to the organs and the immune system. Therefore no sterility in the house! Of course, on the dirt and chaos no one speaks. Regular wet cleaning has not been canceled. Carpets really better to remove — they are an adult and do not need. But the plants and animals are even useful. If the child does not have allergies to them, get rid of them is not necessary. On the contrary, it will be a good training the immune system of your child. And how much love and joy they can bring to the kid! It is also an important factor.
Be sure to put a home humidifier or air unit. Dry air, especially in winter, when the batteries are working, is a very powerful provocateur diseases and allergies. The fact that the dry air dries the nasal mucosa, which is the first barrier body against infections and allergens. In the dry state this barrier is not running. It is therefore important that the humidity is maintained in the apartment all the time.
— That is, the "healthy" amount of allergens, moist air and everything? That's all you need to allergy sufferers?
Certainly not. Another important condition of the baby's skin, especially if he is concerned about atopic dermatitis. The skin is also an organ of our body protection. And with dermatitis, dry skin, chapped, sore. This skin can not protect from anything. This condition should be removed and prevented. To do this, there are lots of selling medical and cosmetic creams. Necessarily have to use them and make sure that the skin is moistened, soft and smooth.
A child with allergies just need a lot of walking. Not so much because of the fresh air is good to all, and to get acquainted with the world of microbes. In a closed room — a group of kindergarten, clinic — too many of them, and the child's body can not cope with such a massive attack. But on the street they are just enough to make the immune system is painless for the child "adopted" them and adapt to them.
— Mariyat, we have not talked about what foods you can have a child with allergies.
It is clear that those products for which the baby allergy — should be excluded. Especially useful for a child with allergies products that will have a beneficial effect on the skin and the immune system. This products containing dietary fiber, vitamins A, D, E, antioxidants, potassium, magnesium, calcium. For example, a very useful organic (home), vegetables and fruits, homemade meat and poultry. They are useful for the body substances necessary for normal metabolic processes in the body: fiber, B vitamins, vitamin E, provitamin A, and trace elements such as zinc, copper, potassium and magnesium. Vegetable fibers contained in the bran, fruits and vegetables stimulate the intestines and prevent constipation.
A young child needs protein for building and growth of the organism. But be careful, because it is protein fractions in foods cause allergies! It is any meat, fish, cheese, eggs, nuts, cottage cheese.
Needless to say, that necessarily fresh vegetables, berries and fruits only buy from those sellers who use only organic fertilizers and do not add to the soil nitrates.
Also, avoid brightly colored products — they can cause allergies!
As sweet, I would recommend candy, jellies, marshmallows, and a variety of home-made jam, jam, jam.
If a doctor deems it necessary, detoxifying herbal medicine for allergies effectively protect the child's body from intoxication, and sweet syrup stevia will help to diversify the background of a balanced diet taste baby.
