Here is some extremely important information for you if your kids get a lot of colds or just seem to go from one cold to another.
Even though it is not unusual for kids to get more colds than adults because their immune systems are learning, developing and maturing, it should not seem like they are fighting a cold most of the time.
This is not considered to be normal.
As a parent, there are 3 things that you need to know about colds and what you can do to combat them effectively without having to rely on antibiotics or medications.
1—sugar; sugar is never good for anybody but if your kids consume a lot of sugar in their diet, this will actually make them prone to getting more colds.
2—dairy; if your kids consume a lot of dairy products ( milk and ice cream especially ) these things will actually make a cold last a lot longer than it should.
3 – and this may be something that you are not aware of, but chiropractic adjustments have a huge impact on immune system function and when your kids get chiropractic care on a regular basis, you will notice that they will be healthier and get colds less often.
So, if your kids are struggling with colds –whether it is too many or they last too long – my best advice to you is to eliminate all forms of sugar from their diet, minimize how much dairy they consume especially when they have a cold and most importantly, make sure they get chiropractic check-ups on a regular basis.
