Middle Ear Infections: Temporary Relief vs. An All-Natural Cure

Middle ear infections are extremely common – so common in fact that many parents discover that their child has one at a well visit to the pediatrician – particularly if it is still in an early stage.

Small Child Middle Ear Infection Picture

Maybe you’re the parent of a child with recurrent middle ear infections and you’ve tried every known method of treating ear infections, including home remedies and antibiotics. Now your doctor is suggesting a consultation with a specialist to discuss ear tube surgery!

Do you really have a choice? After all, the doctor is telling you that your child’s hearing and speech development are at risk and you certainly want to do the right thing. But, isn’t there any other choice available to relieve middle ear infections once and for all?

Yes, you do have a choice. There is a natural alternative for treatment of middle ear infections, an alternative that doesn’t involve drugs or surgery. It’s a safe and effective solution that works for a many children with chronic middle ear infections. Like most home remedies for ear infections, it’s a gentle solution, but it goes one step further – it doesn’t just relieve symptoms – it looks at what might be causing your child’s chronic middle ear infections.

Sounds great? Then please continue…

Middle Ear Infections – What Causes Them?

Babies are born with shorter and smaller eustachian tubes, the “tunnels” that connect the middle ear to the throat and nose. As a child ages, these tubes get longer and straighter, which allows for easier drainage of fluid from the middle ear.

However, in younger children and babies, these tubes tend to clog more often, particularly when a child has had an upper respiratory infection or a cold. When a tube is clogged, the fluid in the middle ear doesn’t drain properly and it begins to back up in the middle ear, right behind the eardrum. This fluid buildup easily becomes infected, producing pain and pressure against the eardrum. When this happens, your child’s doctor will diagnose the condition as acute otitis media or middle ear infection.

Middle ear infections are not serious and they are not contagious; however, they are painful and this pain causes your child’s crying and discomfort.

Sometimes the backup of fluid behind the eardrum pushes so hard against it that the eardrum actually ruptures. Although alarming to the parent, because of the discharge of fluid mixed with blood that usually occurs, a rupture is not a cause for concern and it is not harmful to your child. In fact, when it happens, your child will feel immediate relief from any pain and pressure that was caused by the backup of fluid.

Middle Ear Infections: Tired of Temporary Relief?

These days, most doctors have adopted a very cautious attitude when it comes to ear infections in children. Afraid of the development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria because of antibiotic overuse, and because recent studies have downplayed the effectiveness of antibiotics in treating ear infections, doctors today are less likely to routinely prescribe an antibiotic for middle ear infections.

Instead, many adopt a “wait and see” attitude for the first 72 hours before writing an antibiotic script. In the meantime, they advise you to give your child an over-the-counter pain reliever and provide you with some home remedies for middle ear infections that you might consider to ease your child’s pain, if only just for a little while so you can both get some rest. Easy for the doctor to say!

What if there was another way to relieve your child’s pain and discomfort, a way that might also lessen your child’s chances of having future middle ear infections? What if this same solution helped to eliminate ear infections in children altogether? What if it was available right in your own backyard, through one of the sponsors of What would you say then?

Middle Ear Infections, Relief Naturally

Our sponsors believe in the body’s natural ability to heal itself. So then, why do so many people get sick? They get sick because there is some type of interference in their nervous systems that keeps their bodies from functioning the way they should. And, it is this interference that our sponsors seek to locate and correct.

The chiropractors who sponsor receive very specific training that helps them to find and correct spinal misalignments that interfere with the functioning of our nervous systems. They believe that many illnesses arise due to spinal misalignments, particularly in the upper cervical (neck) vertebrae of the spine.

How do these misalignments occur? They can occur during the birth process when your baby’s neck and spine are pulled and twisted. They can also occur when your child falls or experiences some type of accident or injury (i.e., a car accident).

These spinal misalignments interfere with proper nerve function and affect nerves that branch out to all areas of your child’s body. When nerve function is compromised in any way, the body cannot heal. Drugs and surgeries don’t correct spinal misalignments and free up nerves, chiropractors do!

Once a chiropractor locates and corrects this nerve interference in the spine, the body starts to self-regulate and heal on its own. This is the reason why so many children under chiropractic care no longer get middle ear infections or experience many other childhood health challenges!

When you take your child to see the chiropractor, sit back and watch the way in which he or she interacts with your child to make your child feel comfortable and safe. No shots given here! Trust is quickly established and your child is on the road to health and wellness – not the kind you find in a pill or a bottle of pain relievers – true health that comes from the inside.

Our sponsoring chiropractors want your child to be healthy. That is why they treat causes of disease and not just the symptoms. By removing any nerve interference in your child’s spine, a chiropractor re-establishes the vital communication links between the brain and the body through the nerves that carry the messages back and forth. No interference = health, it’s really just that simple.

Chiropractors don’t claim to cure anything and they can’t promise you that your results will be the same as anyone else’s results. They can tell you that their techniques help to remove interference in the nervous system so that the body can heal, on its own, without harmful drugs and surgeries that often have side effects that are worse than the condition itself!

Middle Ear Infections: What’s the Difference Between Acute Otitis Media and Otitis Media with Effusion?

There are two types of ear infections, but only one has the typical symptoms that most parents are familiar with – the pain, the discomfort, the fever, the state of being absolutely miserable!Acute Otitis Media is a true middle ear infection. There is fluid in the ear along with a red, bulging eardrum and some or all of the following symptoms:

• Fever
• Cold or upper respiratory infection, runny nose,
green or yellow mucous discharge
• Night time wakefulness
• Irritability; fussiness
• Complaint of ear pain, tugging on ear lobe
• Shaking of the head back and forth

Otitis Media with Effusion is simply the presence of fluid in the middle ear without any other symptoms. Your child will act as though he or she feels fine. Fluid in the ear is often diagnosed at a well baby or child examination where the parent may be told to “keep an eye on things” to see “how it goes.” There is no treatment needed until an infection occurs.
