Thrive Company Has New Prenatal Vitamins Natural To Safely Strengthen Immune System During Pregnancy
(EMAILWIRE.COM, May 01, 2015 ) Little Rock, AR -- During Pregnancy, the immune system's ability to safeguard the body from illnesses is naturally suppressed in order to accept the developing baby and not reject it as something foreign. As a consequence, this makes the immune system less effective to fight off infections, making the mother more susceptible to highly contagious viral diseases such as the Flu.
"During pregnancy, the immune system won't be as quick to respond to illnesses as it did before pregnancy," explains Darla Bush, director of product formulation and Vice President at Thrive Plus.
"Because the flu is highly contagious, pregnant women can easily catch it and when they do it can last three times longer than when they were not pregnant," Bush adds.
Flu during pregnancy can be potentially life-threatening to both mother and child. In order to avoid serious pregnancy complications that may result from the flu such as premature birth and stillbirth, it becomes very important for the mother to naturally strengthen her immune system during the critical period of pregnancy.
"Take vitamins, eat nutritious food and exercise" advises Brad Douglas, M.D. and OB/GYN, and Diplomate of American Board of Ob/Gyn (ABOG).
Following healthy habits is the safest way to help prevent getting sick in the first place. Pregnant women can help strengthen their immune system safely and naturally through regular exercise, eating a well-balanced diet every day, making sure to get sufficient rest daily, washing hands frequently and thoroughly, taking prenatal vitamins once a day, and stop smoking as it not only weakens the immune system but is also dangerous for the developing baby.
"Prevention is the best medicine," says Dr. Douglas. "However, if you do come down with colds or flu while you're pregnant, it's best to let them run their course."
Treating any illnesses in pregnant women is different than in non-pregnant women. In pregnancy, special care must be taken to treat colds and flu.
"Always take the safest route and never take any medications without approval from your doctor first," says Dr. Douglas. "As much as possible, choose the most natural methods to help ease your symptoms and speed up your recovery to keep both you and baby safe."
Dr. Douglas recommends, "Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water or fruit juices, soothe sore throat with honey added to hot water or tea, or gargle with salt water, use a natural nasal spray and vaporizer to relieve congestion."
Most importantly, "Take a good prenatal vitamin to keep you boosted with vitamins and minerals," advises Dr. Douglas, "They'll help maintain your nutrient levels when you are likely to have less appetite during a cold or flu."
