Children and immunity

Immunity is passive in nature and is provided by maternal antibodies. At the same time, its own immune system is in a state of suppression. The phagocytosis system is not developed. The newborn shows little resistance to opportunistic, pyogenic, gram-negative flora. A tendency to generalization of microbial-inflammatory processes, to septic conditions is characteristic. The child is very sensitive to viral infections, against which he is not protected by maternal antibodies. Approximately on the 5th day of life, the first cross in the white blood formula takes place and the absolute and relative predominance of lymphocytes is established.

The second critical period is due to the destruction of maternal antibodies. The primary immune response to infection penetrates through the synthesis of class M immunoglobulins and leaves no immunological memory. Continue reading

Children need to be sick

And this paradoxical thing once became a discovery for me. That a child needs to survive about 50 snot episodes to form a mature immune system. Fifty! Necessary!

That is, the immune system is trained, tuned, tested by these snot. Take away the test material from her – she will not be able to tune. We are so afraid of any snot, we are so worried about them that we are preventing children from being healthy. A little snot – drops in the nose. A little temperature – which also sets up the immune system and teaches it to fight viruses – we get an antipyretic. For us, the normal state of the child is without snot at all. That generally never and for nothing.

But if we understand that this is an important stage, that it is better to get chickenpox in childhood, as well as measles, then we can give children much more health – for a future life. Is it not the hardest thing for a mother to let her children get sick? Today, many of their diseases seem to us a tragedy. But if you look at them in the future, they can become healing. Now he will train the immune system, and then he will be able to survive in the flu epidemic. Is it not valuable? Continue reading
