MAMA NATURA® - Immunokind® for RECURRENT INFECTIONS

Immunokind® for RECURRENT INFECTIONS

Immunokind® is a homeopathic complex medicine developed specially to promote the immune system and ward off common infections in the nose, throat, ears and sinuses.

Research shows that after approximately two weeks of treatment, symptoms such as nasal congestion, cough and wheezing improve significantly when using Immunokind®. There is also less chance of picking up another infection. The normal dose for children is one Immunokind® tablet three times a day. Immunokind® is suitable for long-term treatment if necessary.

The dissolve-in-the-mouth tablets make it easy to give Immunokind®, as there is no need to swallow. You can either put a tablet directly in your child’s mouth, or alternatively, dissolve a tablet in a little bit of water on a small (plastic) spoon, if preferred.

However, please check first with your paediatrician.

Immunokind® gives your child’s immune system a natural boost.

Do you think your child has too many colds?

As a mum or dad, you can expect your child to develop four to eight colds in the average year. That may seem a lot, but some kids catch even more. The problem for younger children is that their immune system is still developing, making them more prone to catching infections older children take in their stride. One way to help safely boost your child’s immune system and its ability to tackle infections is Immunokind®.

Cold viruses are a regular challenge for the immune system

A healthy immune system fights off infectious viruses or bacteria using immune cells and antibodies.

Our immune system is ‘on guard’ all the time, but whenever it meets an infectious agent, it can take the body some time to fully boost its cellular immune defences to target the infection specifically.

Recurrent infections – primarily of the upper respiratory tract (i.e. nose, throat, ears, and sinuses) – are a common and frequently occurring problem, especially in small children. Babies are born with an immature immune system but this will develop within the first few years of life as each new infectious agent is encountered.

Recurrent infections in small children can therefore be considered an important stepin the normal development of a child, and part of the process helping to increase the immune system’s effectiveness.

It is possible to help boost the immune system, so that it gets to work more quickly, resists new attacks more effectively, and tackles infections with fewer symptoms.
