Kids and allergies, a tough combination and a chronic problem that is driving parents to look for natural allergy remedies and holistic herbal treatment. Kids allergies make playing outside a miserable experience. Allergy relief brings the freedom to have fun back to children.
Kids Allergies – A Top Childhood Chronic Disease
An estimated 50 million Americans have some type of allergy, which usually first appears during infancy or childhood. Any child may become allergic, but children from families with a history of allergy are more likely to suffer from allergies. Children may inherit the tendency to become allergic, however only some of them will develop active allergic symptoms.
Allergies can show up in different ways in children including:
- Skin rashes (atopic dermatitis or eczema)
- Hay fever – watery eyes and runny nose (allergic rhinitis),
- Dark circles under the eyes and
- Food allergies.
Hay fever is the most common kids allergy problem – striking just when the kids can go outside – although it can be a year-round problem! All those mucous allergy symptoms often lead to secondary problems like ear aches.
Parents can explore what foods and external allergens make their children react and start eliminating the foods, dust catchers in the bedroom and other measures. This helps control the allergy symptoms, but an holistic approach to allergy remedies takes into account increasing nutrition that helps the immune system.
Natural allergy remedies work great for children because they are health-building, effective and lack negative side effects. Families can use them along with traditional allergy medicines as well.
Children’s allergies seem to be on the upswing parallel to the increase of more processed foods with added chemicals, dyes and preservatives in their diets. Children’s immune systems have been strained by the extra work demanded by the non-nutritious diet.
