dark chocolate, which is rich in antioxi- dants and actually healthy.” Her favorite sweetener for kids older than 1 year is raw honey; however, she cautions against giv- ing honey to infants during their first year.


Exercise and Herbal Allies Exercise has been shown to increase blood and lymphatic circulation and in turn, helps move antibodies through the system and do a better job at fighting invaders, according to Harvard Health Publishing. Exercise is also a renowned stress-reliev- er, especially outdoors, which manifests the bonus of vitamin D fortification from healthy sun exposure. “I strongly encourage all my patients to spend at least an hour a day playing outside,” says Olteanu. Childhood stress is a real factor that can


weaken immunity, yet juvenile anxieties may be dismissed or go unnoticed by adults. Caffeine-free herbal teas and glycerin-based tinctures such as chamomile, lemon balm, passionflower and lavender can be reliable double-duty allies for children, calming them while also promoting immune response. Essential oils are another boon. “Te


benefits of using essential oils on children are immense. Many oils are safe for all age groups and can elevate mood, induce relaxation and boost natural defenses,” says holistic nurse and certified clinical aromatherapist Patricia Springer, in Ma- son, Ohio. Springer recommends diffus- ing organic lemon or orange essential oil for 30 minutes two to three times a day in the house or applying one to two drops on a cotton ball and inhaling. Adding a few drops of Roman chamo-


mile or lavender essential oil to Epson or sea salt makes a calming, immune-boost- ing bath.


Homeopathy Homeopathy is a system of natural healing to which kids oſten respond positively. Tere are well-known over-the-counter remedies that treat acute conditions without side effects, but certified classical homeopath Julia Eastman, a doctor of Oriental medicine in Naples, Florida, recommends a more thorough approach. “Homeopathy can be life-changing, but


it’s a system based upon the unique phys- ical, emotional and energetic constitution of the individual. Going to a board-certi- fied classical homeopath is the ideal route, because they can profile the child’s complete constitution, including patterns of illness and personality for the best possible result.” Treating children’s illness homeopathi-


cally when symptoms arise without taking the big picture into account can sometimes cause more harm than good. “Homeopath-


ic remedies are not preventive medicine unto themselves, but using them constitu- tionally can help to improve overall health, immunity included,” says Eastman, who has witnessed dangerously high fevers in infants relieved within minutes when whole-care homeopathy has been applied. Health is wealth, and fortifying the next


generation benefits us all. Marlaina Donato is a freelance writer,
