Immune Systems and Deficiencies

When thinking about children’s health, we need to consider two things. First, it is important to strengthen your child’s immune system so that it is ready to react appropriately when your child is exposed to a bug or toxin. Second, start working on eliminating deficiencies in your child’s diet. The health problems we have as adults partly stem from deficiencies we experienced in childhood, so it is important to work on these immediately to stave off any chronic illnesses that may crop up in the future.

Common Health Problems in Children

Why is it important to work on building up the immune system and eliminating deficiencies? There are so many common health problems children experience that make life harder for the child and the parents. Not only is it scary for families to go through illnesses, but it is not enjoyable to be at the doctor’s office every single week because of symptoms and illnesses that can be avoided. Many children experience ear infections, which are caused by the bacteria streptococcus as well as by certain viruses. Children pick up colds, flus, and fevers all year long, and they might get bronchitis, pneumonia, or sinus infections. It is also common for children to get mystery swollen glands and a fever which are very early signs of mono. Doctors try to avoid diagnosing younger children with mono because of training they receive in medical school that prohibits this. If the truth that children may have an Epstein-Barr virus infection very early on becomes known, there will be much greater awareness of the virus and it will need to become a focus of research and funding, which requires millions of dollars. This is the reason it’s prohibited. It's not the doctors’ faults. It has nothing to do with them. Even blood labs aren’t responsive to early EBV testing in children, toddlers and even babies for this very reason. This might sound controversial but it’s the truth. I share more of the unknown truth about EBV in detail inthe book Thyroid Healing.

Another common ailment is tonsillitis. Medical research is still unaware of the true cause of tonsillitis. Medical science and research aren’t aware that the true cause is a form of EBV when it is in the tonsils, along with EBV’s cofactor—the bacteria streptococcus—and this can be healed by working on lowering your viral and bacterial load with the information I share in my books, radio shows, and articles.

Other common health problems in children include issues that stem from liver stagnancies, like eczema, psoriasis, constipation, food allergies, and sleep issues. It’s possible to have a stagnant liver even as a child because our parents can pass down toxins, viruses, bacteria, radiation and more at conception and throughout pregnancy (and at any time in our youth or adulthood,) and they can affect the liver of a child even before birth. These ailments caused by a sluggish liver are often labeled as autoimmune diseases, when actually they can be healed by bringing in some foods to build up the child’s immune system. You can learn more about the unknown cause of each of these conditions and how the liver is involved along with how your children can heal in Liver Rescue. There are also viral conditions that children often experience, which requires the immune system to be further supported to fend off these pathogens.

While many of these health problems get labeled as autoimmune diseases, this is simply not the case. Your child’s body is not attacking itself. Please do not fall into this trap of confusion. Our bodies love us unconditionally and are always working for us, not against us. You can trust your body, and your child’s body, is always supporting you. It’s also vital that you know that these symptoms and conditions are not genetic. You and your child do not have faulty genes. This is another mistaken theory that is leaving people feeling let down by their own bodies. It’s absolutely critical to know the truth about these two misguided theories. You and your loved ones need to know the truth for the sake of your health.

FOOD ALLERGIES

You can also strengthen your child’s immune system by removing certain foods from his or her diet. When you hear complaints about tummy aches or digestive issues, consider eliminating gluten and dairy products. I am aware that we have been told our whole lives that cow’s milk is essential for our children’s health and that dairy builds strong bones. However, this is inaccurate. Children do not require dairy to have strong bones. In fact, it is the calcium and silica in plant foods that strengthen bones. If you are worried about removing dairy, please know that we have been misinformed about this aspect about health. Also, consider removing eggs, corn, and soy. These are common allergens that are not supportive for children’s immune systems.

Remember that you have options when it comes to eliminating foods. If it feels overwhelming to remove all of these foods from your family’s diet, consider taking out one or two at a time and see how this affects your child’s health and immunity.

Another note, if you are not breastfeeding and would still like to give your child milk, you can make your own supplemental milk at home that is very healthy and full of vitamins and minerals your child needs. Just blend avocado, ripe banana, and water or coconut water to create a delicious drink to replace breastmilk or to supplement on top of it.

WHEN DEALING WITH A FEVER

If your child comes down with a cold or flu, hydration is critical. As soon as you feel your child is developing a fever, stop the solid foods right away and increase the liquids. Give your sick child plenty of lemon water, vegetable broths, fresh cucumber juice, coconut water or even a pure bottled fruit juice such as 100% apple juice and you can dilute it with a little bit of water or coconut water. Giving your child food when the fever has begun will only spike their temperature and make it more difficult to fight. It’s crucial to stave off the fever with high quality hydration.

Helpful Foods for Deficiencies

When considering deficiencies in your children, it is very helpful to work on correcting them early on so that your kids are set up for a better life for years to come. Decades into the future deficiencies will crop up if they are not handled at a young age, even if your child’s health seems good and stable during their younger years. The following are some foods that are very helpful to include in your child’s diet. If your children are older already, there’s nothing to be concerned about, you can simply take these steps now to support them. I understand that children are their own individuals with their own unique opinions and preferences; so if your child simply won’t eat certain foods at this age, perhaps that will change in the future. For example, if your child won’t eat avocado, try offering them another one of the foods from the list below. By keeping your house full of delicious fruits, leafy greens, and vegetables, you will be able to see your child make their own decisions and reach for the healthful foods they are interested in. Just keep your counters stocked with their favorites from this list, and maybe soon their palate will begin to expand.

Bananas are one of the top foods for children. They are loaded with amino acids, protein, and even healthy fats. Bananas are filled with potassium, which is critical for brain health and brain development. These are an absolute staple to include in your child’s diet. And do not be afraid of the sugar in fruit.

Berries are another staple food to provide to children. They are absolutely packed with phytochemicals, antioxidants, and anthocyanins. Try to incorporate wild blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, and any other type of berries your children gravitate toward.

Apples and pears are some more fruits that are important to include in your child’s diet. And remember to have sweet potatoes and winter squash on hand to throw into your meals. Try to incorporate turnips, different varieties of potatoes, coconut, and avocado, as well. These are all great foods to help your children avoid deficiencies.
