Immunity is actually the “positive energy” of traditional Chinese medicine, which refers to the body’s ability to resist disease and negative energy. The ancient medical book says: “When positive energy is stored, negative energy cannot invade,” and the human body is healthy and strong in disease resistance. If diseases and negative energy are unable to attack the body, one will not become ill. Conversely, if a person is sick, it is due to the lack of positive energy and effects of negative energy.
As children’s organs are not fully matured, their immunity is weaker than that of an adult. Thus, they are more susceptible to the influence of foreign negative energy, which can cause cold, allergic rhinitis, bronchitis, wheezing and other respiratory diseases, as well as gastroenteritis and other diseases. Improving the immunity of children has become the most important topic of concern for many parents.
