What is resistance? That human resistance to foreign substances (such as bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites) the ability of invasion, including the immune system and physical state. We organized to protect their own body functions, will produce a foreign body in the power of exclusion of immunization responsiveness is mainly dominated by the lymphatic system. the body’s immune system is divided into cellular and humoral immunity, cellular immunity is the defense of our Men, including neutrophils, lymphocytes and macrophages and other white blood cells; and humoral immunity, including immunoglobulin protein, complement proteins and chemicals, which is white blood cells to fight pathogens tool.
Determine physical reasons are complex, inter-related, including genetic, hormonal, nutrition and exercise. Physiological structure of every individual also has a specific weakness, and some weak trachea, some bad stomach, such as: children with allergies , when the season changes, easy runny nose, cough, are often mistaken for recurrent infections.
Of resistance factors: To sum up, it should be discussed from three perspectives, including age factors, nutritional factors and customary factors.
1, age: age is a resistance to the most important reason, young children susceptible to illness because the immune system is not yet mature. Newborn infants, cord blood can only be entered by the fetus through the maternal immune globulin against infection Such metabolic globulin gradually after birth to 4 months when the content is less, until 6 months when the baby itself immune globulin gradually increased after 6 years of age to catch up in the adult level.
Cellular immunity, the age of two children, T lymphocyte function, and the film clip wrapped in bacteria, can not be eliminated, so if this type of bacterial infection to (for example, pneumococcus, Haemophilus influenzae), the course will Rapid progression to meningitis, septicemia. Therefore, young children and the environment, pathogens in the confrontation, down at the leeward not surprising. a normal child, in his first 10 years of life, estimated to be 100 times infectious disease, within a year on average 6 to 10 times risk of infection.
2, Nutrition: dietary goal is to get the body of various nutrients, and nutrients and physical health related, diet, nutrition, health, three aspects are closely related. Good health or not, not born, by luck, but can be by the right diet to achieve. child anorexia, the partial eclipse, the resistance will decrease. studies have shown that infants lack of protein, vitamins, calcium, iron, etc., there will be poor immune function.
3, living habits: habits, including diet, exercise and health habits can affect the immune and nutritional factors above. Exercise can promote blood circulation, improve heart and lung function. Modern life, the children stay at home too much time, lack of activity should be more than the baby out with fresh air, aerobic exercise can greatly enhance the ability of white blood sterilization, of course, need to be reminded that the most early age to develop good health habits. Do not pay attention to children’s cold, too hot not to wear too thick to let him have the appropriate cold exercise. Do not want the child, cold, and more importantly, always be careful not to let a child with a fever. sweat more children, is often cold sick.
How to improve the resistance? As follows:
1 breastfeeding: Breast milk is rich in immune substances, infants and young children can enhance immunity. Is generally believed that infants breastfed less sick, this is because breast milk contains to prevent bacteria, virus attack the body’s immune substances IgA antibodies. In addition but also to develop an intestinal probiotic containing Bi Feide’s factor, a bactericidal effect of lactoferrin, lysozyme enzyme, white blood cells and so protect the body in many substances.
2, vaccination: vaccination is the prevention of infectious diseases the most economical, safe and effective method, there is no immunity to the child should be vaccinated. Current routine vaccination of infants and young children can enhance the diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, hepatitis B, tuberculosis , polio, measles immunity. vaccination can choose their own expense, chicken pox, mumps, rubella, pneumococcal, Haemophilus influenzae, influenza virus vaccine to reduce the chance of the baby being infected.
3, a balanced diet: a healthy balanced diet is the foundation of any age should pay attention to diet to sustain life and prevent diseases. Balanced diet is the food into four major categories, including 5 cereals, meat, eggs, beans, vegetables fruits and other food categories, the daily food should include these 4 types of food, and pay attention to the proper weight. vegetable and fruit classes can supply fiber, vitamins, and minerals to strengthen body resistance and to prevent constipation, eat more anyway.
4, moderate exercise: any action should be considered from the safety of infants and young children, it must not make any movement of more than ability of infants and young children. Do not do gymnastics because of the discomfort caused by infants and young children, the best time in the two meals of room. time is too short of fitness to be ineffective, time is too long then make the infant too tired, it is proposed for 20 minutes each time is more appropriate (but depending on the situation of infants and young children make flexible adjustment). and more outdoor exercise, received sunlight, the sun for 20 minutes per person per day, will have their own requirements for synthesis of vitamin D a day.
5, right hand: Infant is the exploration period, his hands touching everywhere, the stuff into their mouth is nothing new. All contagious diseases are invading your mouth and nose touch, so wash your hands in the first pass to eliminate pathogens, Hand washing is the most effective methods of prevention.
Daily life to form good habits: human resistance from multiple factors, to strengthen the resistance, but also from a multi-pronged approach should be to eat a single food seeking physical, role quite where to go, parents do not have blind faith in health food performance. If your child has frequent illness problems, please use patience and perseverance. to the above mentioned reasons in several directions to explore and develop in everyday life in good health habits.
With child growth and development, immunity to improve, many weak and sickly child, grown up they will be disease-free painless, as long as the concept of the right parents, perseverance, soothing the child’s growth and optimistic expectations thrive it! If you want your children healthy, the best approach is to encourage children to take more exercise and balanced nutrition, and need appropriate rest, eat, sleep, more exercise stage a cliche, but it is an effective way to increase resistance.
