Too many parents are asking the same question: the child is frequently ill, what to do? This is not surprising - because children often get sick almost incessantly - ARI blends in with a sore throat, sore throat - in otitis media, otitis media - in bronchitis and bronchitis - again in the ARD. Parents have a strong feeling that they are running in circles like a squirrel in a cage - pills, potions, compresses, warm ...
Why is this happening? More recently, the people talked about these children, "so he freaks grow." Indeed, fast enough to hurt the child stopped. In our time the picture is somewhat different - now about sickly children say that they have reduced immunity. Immediately following tips to treat these children. But despite the increased treatment often ill child the number of diseases, not only does not decrease, but on the contrary - increases.
So what should parents do - be patient and wait until the problem goes away by itself, or else try to treat it and improve immunity? It is in this issue and we will try to understand this article. Of course, there are plenty of similar materials, so we decided to go not quite standard way, so you'll see a little bit non-standard approach to the problem, from a different angle. After all, a little humor does not hurt never, is not it?
Who is to blame and what to do?
As you know, in Russia there are two issues - who is to blame and what to do? First we need to deal with first. Most often, the parents go to extremes and decide that their child is born with low levels of immunity. And start to blame themselves - poor nutrition, colds during pregnancy, hassle, etc., etc., etc ... However, doctors - immunologists argue that this is not the case - in fact with congenital disorders of immunity in the light there is, fortunately, very small number of children.
And believe me, these kids have much more serious problems than the banal repetitive. The most common colds turns to these kids serious bacterial complications that are virtually untreatable. Thus, we can conclude that the innate immune deficiency is a deadly condition of the child. However, a continuing sore throats and colds it is not related in any way, fortunately.
So what then is the basis of permanent illness of such a huge number of today's children? The doctors - immunologists argue that the blame - that the secondary immune system. From the primary is characterized in that the crumb is born with perfectly normal functioning immune system. Over time, however, the influence of water of different factors or development of the child's immune system is suppressed, or at all stops.
Simply put, the reality is - if the baby would be born healthy, starts to ache constantly, it is a conflict with its environment. Out of this situation can be only two - you can either attempt to reconcile the child with his environment with the help of numerous pharmacological agents, however, without any guarantees for a successful outcome of the event.
And you can go for unconventional ways - to try to change the environment so as to fully meet the demands and needs of your demanding baby. At first glance, this task seems nearly impossible, however, if this is really the case?
How, then, formed the capricious lady - the immune system? Numerous studies have shown that the formation and subsequent functioning of the immune system entirely depends on a wide variety of external influences. All these influences and factors in the aggregate form is what is called the "way of life" - air, water, exercise, rest, food, living conditions. All these little things play a huge role.
Thus, the main truth that you need to understand and recognize those parents who are often ill children - in these diseases do not blame the child. And the phrase "he is really a black sheep" - a very weak excuse for parents. For almost all cases, the child's illness to blame anyone other than the parents themselves. Yes - yes, we adults are to blame for that. What our children are sick!
However, unfortunately, almost none of the parents does not find the courage to openly admit that it was their fault dearly beloved, but often ill child so weak. This is not surprising - after all recognize this fact is to recognize that we have something wrong doing: may not feed, do not dress up, improperly treat.
However, as long as parents do not find the courage and do not recognize this fact, help their child will not be able, none the most competent and qualified doctor, even if he is the most distinguished luminary of science. Do not believe? Judge for yourself. Treat this discussion with a bit of humor, but be careful - you might recognize yourself in some situations.
So, one cold, second, third, bronchitis, otitis media ... My mother was seriously disturbed and begins to rush in search of advice. As a rule, the first course is "heavy artillery" - grandmother. A woman comes for advice, and in response to hear a bunch of claims: dress and you're not the way you want - and the naked neck and a thin jacket. And feed him badly - almost nothing to eat, and what eats - improper quality. And he sleeps you are not on the mattress, and even at night he has a habit of open, what a nightmare!
Well do not worry, grandmother beside her grandmother experienced so smart - they really - it is not unreasonable Dityatki will disappear, and both, as the eldest and youngest. Already a warm scarf we associate, but to roll up to the neck, but a couple of socks - the warm, yes to sew quilt ties.
*** Tsat food pans to cook with shamans, tambourines and dancing baby fed. However, despite all the efforts of the grandmothers, the child continues to be ill. But the grandmothers in the presence of not only a clear conscience, but also a moral right to tell you that you are a bad careless parents smyslyaschie nothing at all in the education of their own children.
Then my mother to ask for help to friends, colleagues and people you know who have children about the same age. As a general rule, in response to the woman often heard mumbling about all of the same weak immunity and vague advice to wait until better times. And when they are, the better times will come, not to say none of them. However, someone will tell the story of how Masha - Lena - Amy child suffered almost continuously.
However, once it someone suggested incredibly, just archive the active supplements, which used the seminal vesicles silver unicorn caught on the slopes of Mount Olympus. And should her child drink only one course as he is not only the adenoids and lymph nodes mysteriously came back to normal, but even the common cold for more than a year, never thought of the baby. Even the famous doctor - a pediatrician was so shocked that he had purchased for his children a couple of packages.
And by the way, the last package of the miracle - means the most wonderful - incredible way to have overlooked some Marya Mikhailovna. However, if you want to get it, you need to run to her with all haste - because silver unicorns season started mating season, and so the admission of a new party can be expected not earlier than in five years - six.
And parents are throwing away this means losing on track shoes. Have time to buy - their conscience is clean, because they are wonderful parents, who for his precious treasure no money do not mind, though a star from the sky, if necessary, we'll get. Well, if not a star, then a piece of the meteorite's for sure! But colds going? Well done, the child has such a weak immune system.
Further, when the "bad advice" exhausted parents finally - after "mature" and decide to see a doctor. And not to a local pediatrician who is absolutely clueless and did not want to work, and to a serious doctor in an expensive private medical centers. It does not matter that on the wall of the office with expensive interior is not always possible to find at least a medical degree, indicating that he graduated from medical school. After all, no one would pay money to bad doctors. A weighty argument, is not it?
And start complaints ... "Oh, Doctor! We are for the year 22 times ill with acute respiratory infections, and 33 - a sore throat! We ate three kilograms of vitamins, two kilograms of antibiotics and expectorants medicine drank a pound. Help us, Doctor! After all, our pediatrician Oksana frivolous and completely illiterate doctor! The only advice we hear from her - a hardening of the child. But how it can be tempered, because his immune system is absolutely not perform its functions! Save us, doctor, probably because the child is sick some unknown terrible disease.
As a rule, the parents continue to hear a proposal to examine the child from head to toe - in the presence of worms, bacteria and viruses, to determine the current state of the immune system. Notice, for a very substantial sum of money.
And as a result of this examination the doctor finds a beautiful bouquet: in the gut - sticks staphylococcus in the blood - titres lamblia, cytomegalovirus, herpes and other "charms". And the results of blood tests by the method of wearing the extremely clever title "immunogram", and does clearly demonstrates that there are serious problems.
On the one hand parents are terribly scared - well, still, the poor little child! On the other hand, as it were blasphemous it may sound, the parents sigh with relief - it's not our fault! We are all so good and positive, do all that depends on us. Oh, poor, our Lena - Light - Peter - Michael, how to attack the kid came over - and viruses and bacteria, and even staph ... Well, that's okay, because the "smart" the doctor has prescribed us a lot of wide variety of expensive drugs that are sure relieve crumbs from all this shit.
Then there is almost proud to demonstrate the results of these analyzes. And the first who will show these analyzes - a grandmother. They, perhaps, even words such clever as immunogram and cytomegalovirus, not heard. But even if you cease to criticize - it's not that you're bad parents, and that the child's immune system does a lousy.
And then these analyzes will certainly be shown the very same Oksana V. - absolutely irrational and illiterate pediatrician. Now she too is aware of the exact depth of his delusion. And we are fine - we did not listen to her, and they were right, do not expose your child to the dangers and temper, because he has a terrible immunogram.
But what is strange - Oksana refuses to admit that she is wrong! Moreover - horror of horrors - it states that no inhabitant of the city, in the blood has no antibodies to cytomegalovirus, herpes and giardia. And, she said, Staphylococcus aureus - is a natural inhabitant of the intestine. She still refuses to treat crumbs, and continues to insist on tempering procedures. Obviously, she does not like us, and she is trying to make us understand that we are bad parents.
How to break the vicious circle?
Of course, very few people want to admit the fact that the child is frequently ill as such because of their parents. But almost all of these cases it is right that the most "illiterate" pediatrician Oksana. It is unlikely that a huge number of different pharmacological drugs you will be able to cope with regularly occurring colds.
So go the other way and allow the immune system of the child alone. Try to get rid of the negative factors from the external environment - and the immune system will immediately take care of itself. To do this, first of all change the way of life - this measure will greatly enhance the chances of the child to strengthen immunity.
And you should not go to extremes, and dipped the child in an ice hole. Such drastic measures at all to anything. Try a more sparing methods:
- Air. Pay attention to the air in your home. It should be cool, clean and wet - a humidifier will be very helpful. And try to get in the air there was no pungent smells - air fresheners, paint or perfume.
- Sleeping child. Please note that the child was sleeping in a cool room. Sleep child must last at least 10 hours per day. Do not make the child sleep during the day more than three - five years, unless, of course, he does not express a desire. Make sure that the duration of daytime sleep was not more than one and a half hours.
- Feeding a child. Pay special attention to the child's diet - ideally, discuss it with your doctor - a pediatrician. And remember one thing - in any case, never force a child to have forcibly - only if he asks.
- The presence of liquid. Pay attention to the fact whether the child has permanent access to liquid, so that he could remove the thirst. And note - it must be a fruit tea, non-carbonated drinking water, but in any case no sugary drinks.
- Clothing child. Do not get too much "coddle" baby - too warm clothing will not do any good, more harm. After all, perspiring child more likely to get sick. It is not necessary to dress the baby warmer than wearing yourself.
Believe me, these simple techniques is very effective. They check on the huge number of parents - even the sickly children rather quickly forget about most of all diseases.
