A child awakens suddenly at night crying because of intense ear pain. The probable cause is infection of the middle ear (the area between the eardrum and the skull) -a very painful condition called acute otitis media that is usually accompanied by fever with fluid coming out of the ear. Childhood ear infections often frighten parents partly because they tend to come on suddenly, often at night.
Cause Of Ear Infections?
Why are ear infections so common today? As Harris L. Coulter, Ph.D. explains in his landmark book Vaccination, Social Violence and criminality, the cause may be childhood vaccinations. Otitis, with consequent hearing loss, is one of the most common effects of vaccination. Today the United States is experiencing a true plague of this condition. At least half of all U.S. children have had an episode of "glue ear" by their first birthday. By the age of six, 90 percent have had such an episode, and they account for thirty million visits to physicians each year.
Conditions associated with vaccine damage, including ear infections, asthma and various behavior problems such as hyperactivity and attention deficit disorder, have increased greatly since the start of mass vaccination programs. This increase is not across the board, however, as Coulter describes: Conditions not associated with vaccine damage.. remained stationary during this time or actually declined.
The Chiropractic Approach
Chiropractic care is one of the best things you can give a child suffering from an ear infection. Chiropractic is not a treatment for ear infections, yet doctors of chiropractic have noticed chiropractic's profound effect on ears and hearing:
It is essential that anyone with an ear infection consider a chiropractic spinal checkup. Chiropractic care may make the difference. Keeping your child's spine free from spinal subluxations will help your child's natural defenses against disease. This will help you avoid drugs with all their side effects. Give your child the great advantage of this safer, more natural, non drug form of health care.
