Lots of Water, Sunshine and Love

Asthma and Eczema are both caused due to dryness. The skin does not to take in the water to remain hydrated and the lungs does not take in enough water to keep itself moist and working well. The lungs is like an engine, when the moisture for the engine is down it starts screeching and has difficulty functioning. Hence lots of water is required for the asthmatic body to function well.

  • Invest on a good humidifier for the air to be moist in the bedroom. The steam helps in relaxing and opening up the tubes.
  • Keep giving water to your child to help the body.
  • Give warm bath to loosen the mucus.
  • Incorporate food with water like fruits, vegetables and soups.
  • Add lots of physical play for the body to want and absorb the water.
  • Swimming also helps.
  • Sunshine produces vitamin D that helps the body, hence outside play becomes a must.
  • Above all the child needs lots and lots of love

Lots of Water, Sunshine and Love are the best ingredients to help thrive an asthmatic child. Take care of the little sapling.
