Children, nowadays, seem to have allergic reaction with almost anything and everything found in their surroundings, be it inside or outside their homes. My kids are not excluded. Sudden changes in the weather, pollution and talc seem to cause their noses to get red and runny. Slowly, I am learning how to manage their allergic reactions and here are some of the things I do:
Increase their fluid intake.
Increase their Vitamin C intake, as recommended by their pediatrician.
Give them fruits of the season.
Rub their feet and wrist with a special blend of essential oils.
Making sure they get enough and quality sleep.
If all else fails, and with pediatrician’s prescription, we use anti-histamine at night.
No matter how much I hate it when they get allergies and no matter how much I want to protect and shield them, I still wanted to boost their immunity naturally. After all, they will be living on this planet for probably around eighty more years. So, as much as possible and practicable, I encourage their natural adaptation with their surroundings, both inside and outside our home. Part of this is letting them spend time outdoors, by that I mean, open parks, public museums and other naturally-ventilated spaces. Here are our quick trips over the past months:
Another family favourite is, Fort Santiago in Intramuros, Manila!
We were supposed to go to Skydeck, The Bayleaf Intramuros fro dinner but I was not able to reserve earlier. So, we went to one of our favorite restaurants around the area, Ristorante delle Mitre.
Super sarap to make pasyal (super nice to go around) with my children! Where do you think we should go next?
