Immunity and flexibility in preschoolers

kids develop viral infections when they leave their homes and go to preschool for the first time.

Most parents notice that their kids develop fever, cough, cold, diarrhea, or vomiting when they start going to play school, which is not the case when they were not going to school. This happens because they come in contact with other kids, teachers, housekeeping staff, bus drivers, and maids at school. They acquire infection from unlimited sources in the community whereas there are limited sources at home to acquire infection

There is scientific evidence that a natural diet, natural remedies and an active lifestyle boost immune system and help in avoiding illnesses such as the common cold and even preventing the flu, as well as more serious health conditions.
