How To Heal Ear Infections
Does you child experience chronic ear infections? I have spent over a year researching ear infections because my daughter suffered with chronic ear infections.Our Pediatrician told us the next step would be tubes because antibiotics had stopped working.I told myself I would do everything I could to try to avoid this and if my efforts failed then we would approach tubes with an open mind.
Well, my daughter does not have tubes in her ears and has not suffered another ear infection since.If you decide to try this method give it some time, healing the body naturally takes a little time and effort but the results will be a healthy child with a stronger immune system…
A Compromised Immune System
Recurring ear infections, especially in young children, are often linked to a poor immune system due to inadequate nutrition, food allergies, environmental toxins and emotional stress.These symptoms are treated with antibiotics which may work initially and do kill harmful bacteria, but they also destroy beneficial intestinal bacteria.

This upsets the balance needed for good digestion and elimination, allowing for the possibility of harmful bacteria to take over such as Candida Albicans.This may be the beginning of a vicious cycle of more ear infections, more antibiotics and imbalance.Our bodies need the good bacteria to maintain health.
Candida Albicans thrive on sugar, any food we eat containing sugar, starches or simple carbohydrates will feed the Candida and encourage it to multiply.If the body is not getting adequate vitamins and minerals to keep the immune system strong than the body becomes more vulnerable to overgrowth of Candida.
Probiotics kill bad bacteria and yeasts that inhabit the small and large intestine and are vital for getting the immune system back on track.They are necessary to aid in the proper absorption of minerals, vitamins, proteins, and fats within the body.Along with a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables and whole grains, a good multivitamin and vitamin C supplement will help to strengthen your child’s immune defenses.
The Wonders of Essential Fatty Acids
Essential fatty acids (the good fats) are a natural anti-inflammatory and play an important role in normal immune and nervous system health by increasing the number of white blood cells, enabling them to fight and destroy bacteria. Essential fatty acids are commonly found in flax oil and fish oil. These oils can be easily added to a healthy diet on foods such as oatmeal, yogurt, cottage cheese, rice, etc. as well as in a smoothie. Also, never use these oils while cooking, heat destroys the nutritional value and always keep refrigerated. Use only the recommended dose and always consult your pediatrician.
There are some fats that should be limited in the diet. Trans fats (the bad fats) are found in hydrogenated oils, vegetable shortening and margarine. Saturated fats found mainly in red meat, dairy and processed foods. An excess of these fats can predispose a child to recurrent infections and inflammatory conditions.
Acupuncture and Acupressure
Acupuncture and Acupressure therapy treat a wide range of health conditions, including immune deficiency by stimulating and balancing the immune system. It works by stimulating specific portions of the autonomic nervous system through selected points, which strengthens a weakened immune system by increasing red and white cell counts.
Follow these steps and you will see great results; a healthy child with a strong immune system.I have used this method personally and it works, my daughter is proof. Be patient healing naturally takes time, you should see results within 1-2 months.
