It’s about allergies. We all know such mothers who wash the floors three times a day, boil and wash anything, for any case they have a sanitizer, and the cat should not sleep with the child. And this can serve the poor service of the child and his immunity.
Immunity – immunity, body resistance to infections and invasions of foreign organisms (viruses, bacteria, protozoa, parasites), exposure to foreign substances. Another important role is played by the antitumor function of the immune system. The biological meaning of immunity is to ensure the genetic integrity of an organism throughout its individual life. Without an immunity system, the development of highly organized organisms would not have been possible.
Allergies are affecting more and more people, and especially young children, moreover, the forms can be the most severe. Sometimes this is not just a reaction to certain foods, but deadly Quincke’s edema and bronchial asthma. In addition, there are a number of dangerous autoimmune diseases: diabetes, Crohn’s disease, celiac disease, multiple sclerosis, asthma. Moreover, their occurrence is not always of a hereditary nature.
Some doctors are of the opinion that immunity needs an “enemy”, it develops by fighting bacteria. And we, by our efforts, bring this struggle to nothing. Perfectly washed floors now instead of a lawn, lack of domestic animals (or very limited contact with them) instead of a whole farmyard in the village, “healing” of existing viruses and fear of new viruses – simply do not allow immunity to develop. In the absence of “work”, immunity finds enemies wherever possible: in pollen and house dust, in animal hair, in certain products.
Doctors give these tips:
- Keep order without fanaticism. Of course, you need to maintain an acceptable level of hygiene, but calmly. No need to worry if the floors are a bit dirty.
- Let the child walk on the grass and touch everything that he wants to touch on the street (also without fanaticism, calmly. Of course, if this does not threaten the baby).
- There must be animals in the house. American researchers published the work of the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology. Which says that contact with the coat should be, moreover, good if it will be in the first years of life. Some families, having learned about pregnancy, get rid of their animals. Do not do it, it’s useless.
- Do not use antibacterial soap and other antibacterial agents. In some countries, they are generally prohibited – this is a direct path to weakened immunity and asthma. These are antibiotics, they change the strains of bacteria, and they become immune to antibiotics when you need to treat a disease.
- Do not be afraid of childhood infectious diseases: you also do not need to run it, but it is also not necessary to heal and panic.
