Ear infections, or Otitis Media, are common for many children before the age of 15. It is common for the medical field to prescribe antibiotics, even though medical journals themselves suggest antibiotics are over-prescribed, and actually aren’t successful in the treatment of otitis media. Dr. Russell Brokstein, a chiropractor in Freehold, NJ discusses how chiropractic is a natural solution in treatment of ear infections:
Many infants suffer needlessly with ear infections and congestion. Parents think the only solution is to go to the pediatrician, who prescribe one round after another of antibiotics. There are many side effects of taking these antibiotics and most times the antibiotics don’t work, or if they work, it’s a temporary patch and then the ear infections return. Research shows that medical doctors have over-prescribed antibiotics and other medications causing them to no longer be effective and shouldn’t be taken unless totally necessary.
Also, one has to realize that antibiotics also kill the normal healthy bacteria that are needed to keep the body healthy.
Another suggestion by medical doctors is to put tubes in the ears. They rarely explain the high risks of the surgery, including permanent hearing loss and the high possibility that the ear infections will come back after a couple of years.
Chiropractors have been highly successful in helping infants with ear infections or otitis media. By addressing the cause of the build up of fluid that is an ideal environment for the bacterial build up, the majority of ear infections resolve naturally with chiropractic care… NO DRUGS, NO SURGERY!
As a chiropractor in Freehold, NJ I have seen many infants over the last 13 plus years in practice. Many of which were on several rounds of antibiotics and also told nothing else would help but surgery. Fortunately they found information online or were referred to me by other parents whose children were helped by chiropractic. Recently, I had a mother who was being treated for low back pain and she was complaining how her 2 year old daughter has been fighting ear infections no and off for several months and more recently congestion for a month. The pediatricians kept prescribing antibiotics which were not only ineffective but were starting to discolor the infants teeth. I informed the mother how chiropractic can help and after just one visit, the infant’s congestion cleared up and after the second visit her ear infections were gone. Watch the mother explain:
Do you have children who suffer with ear infections, otitis media, or who have chronic congestion and colds. Wouldn’t you like a healthy, drug-free alternative to medicine and surgery? Share this blog with other parents who have children suffering with these conditions too as it’s so important for everybody to know there are healthy options for the children.
