An Alternative to Antibiotics for Children’s Ear Infections

July 13, 2009 | 1 Comment

Ear infections are very common in children and babies and the common solution for many western doctors is a good dose of antibiotics and over the counter pain medication such as Tylenol.

Unfortunately, repeatedly using antibiotics is not an ideal solution for our children. They are likely to build up an immunity to this medication, and (heaven forbid) if anything happens later in life where they really need that help, it may not even be effective.

Additionally, healthy bacteria in their intestines are killed during antibiotic treatments, changing the ph inside and their little bodies are less able to heal themselves naturally. Sugars and yeasts thrive in this internal environment. Hence, keeping off of antibiotics is a wise choice here for overall health and well being.

So, what’s a safe alternative?

Chiropractic Care, a Natural Remedy, For Ear Infections

Chiropractic adjustments in the cervical spine, by a studied Chiropractic Doctor, are helping children everywhere, relieve ear infections!

“But I don’t believe in chiropractic care,” you may think. Well, either did I, or my mom, before we both found a chiropractor that worked with us as individuals, and is helping us with back injuries.

“But, I would never bring my child for that kind of adjustment,” you may think. I did too, until I found the right doctor, and had a solid reason. Our relief came from a fall my child had, right onto her head. The adjustment she recieved was in her cervical spine (neck) and I highly recommend him to many people.

“There is a growing movement and awareness that antibiotics and eartubes are not the most effective way to address the cause of chronic ear infections in children. There has been tremendous success at my office with the children who use chiropractic adjustments to keep the nerves free of disturbance so that the ears and immune system can have the proper nerve supply. This enables the body to be self-healing and self-regulating,” says Dr. Chad Bennis from Advanced Spinal Care in Kapaa, Kauai.

“Remember that proper nerve supply enables children to grow and develop properly while the body is in its developmental stages. This early time in children’s lives is crucial and sets the course for their entire life expression through their nervous system.”

“Chiropractic adjustments have additionally helped to relieve Autism side effects in children too!

So, SAFbaby mama’s suggest finding a chiropractor that is reputable in their work, and reputable with children too. Ask around, or interview them personally, until you find the doctor you know is right for you.

    Hello,

    I just wanted to add that there is a bit of a controversy over chiropractic neck adjustments. Some people are not warned that there is the possibility of risk with these procedures. A few chiropractors will even deny the possibility of risk, which is very concerning.

    (While I don’t advocate this website, the name of the website, or the name of the article for the sensationalism.. the article is well done and explains the risk)

    And an awareness and support group from chiropractic stroke victims:

    I am neither for or against chiropractic care. I know people who have been helped immensely by chiropractic procedures. On the other hand, I also have a 35 year old acquaintance that was in perfect health that suffered a stroke 6 hours after a ‘neck adjustment’. He was no longer able to continue work as a teacher as a result of his symptoms. I just want people to have informed decisions.

    “So, SAFbaby mama’s suggest finding a chiropractor that is reputable in their work, and reputable with children too. Ask around, or interview them personally, until you find the doctor you know is right for you.” That says it all right there!
