Immune System: 5 Ways To Boost Your Children’s Defense
With the Covid-19 situation, we can not help but wonder what measures we can do to protect our children from it. Of course, hand washing, and staying away from crowds are basics, but when it comes to protecting your children‘s health, preventing, and boosting their defensive mechanisms is a must.
Today, we will share with you 5 tips to boost your child’s immune system, as well as supporting it to be strong and healthy all year long!
Essential oils are incredible to prevent disease naturally. During the cold/respiratory disease season, they can be really helpful to improve your child´s condition.
Among the best essential oils for immune system boosting you can find “Defender” to boost the immune system, “Germ Destroyer” if your child starts to show symptoms of illness, and “Sniffle Stopper” to help with congestion. We also recommend Oregano, Tea Tree Oil, and Frankincense.

Cod Liver Oil
Cod liver oil is a great way to prevent illness thanks to its immune-boosting properties. Cod liver oil is packed with vitamin D, vitamin A, and omega-3 fatty acid which makes it the perfect supplement for ASD children.
To make it easier for children to take, we highly encourage you to mix it in smoothies or orange juice.
Silver has been used for decades to prevent diseases due to its antimicrobial agents. Recent studies have discovered that it is effective against aerobic and anaerobic microorganisms, therefore it is powerful to support the immune system.
It’s important to look for true colloidal silver and never use it for more than 14 days at a time. You can use it on the skin for cuts and wounds, or place a few drops under the tongue or in a beverage like juice.
A healthy body, and especially a healthy immune system, starts in the gut.
Probiotics are “good” bacteria touted to help maintain digestive health and boost the immune system. For children on the spectrum, probiotics are key to enhancing their gut health and improve not only their immune system but their digestion.
Sauerkraut, kimchi, kombucha, regular or dairy-free yogurt, fermented jam, fermented ketchup, or any other cultured foods are great dietary sources of probiotics.
Detox baths are great to boost the immune system with minerals while removing unnecessary bacterias. Epsom salts, baking soda, and essential oils are the key ingredients, but you can also use things like bentonite clay and herbal teas.
Stem Cell Therapy
In autism, stem cell therapy is mainly geared to address issues with the immune system, the neurologic system, and the gastrointestinal system.
Stem cells can regulate the immune function by secreting specific cytokines (cytokines are substances that allow cells to communicate with other cells) which regulate the expression of inflammatory substances and downregulate the immune system. Thus, representing an improved immune response and overall better health.

We believe that supporting your child’s health should be a 360º approach and that boosting his/her immune system is equally as important as supporting his/her overall development.
However, we consider, that these measures, are just another tool in your arsenal and it should be used along with a gluten/dairy/soy-free diet, right supplementation, and overall proper medical advice and supervision.
At WSCC, we offer support for autistic families and their children with Stem Cell Therapy treatments that can transform autistic conditions by healing the gut, decreasing inflammation and improving brain function. We also created an autistic community on Facebook that is destined to offer support and companionship for ASD parents and their families on their journey.
Remember, you are not alone!
