Are Ear Infections Normal?

Are Ear Infections Normal?

Ear infections (otitis media) in children are one of the most common reasons to be seen by a doctor. It's hard on any parent to watch their child struggle with ear pain. However, most ear infections, whether viral or bacterial in nature, typically clear up on their own, without the use of antibiotics. Over treating every illness with antibiotics creates a vicious cycle of antibiotic dependency, placing children at risk for developing serious illness.

You'll be interested in knowing that there are measures that can be taken to prevent ear infections from occurring. Breastfeeding and nutritional excellence have been shown to decrease the incidence of developing ear infections. Equally important, switching to a whole-food, plant-based diet supports optimal immune function; therefore, many children who once suffered from frequent infections recover from this chronic cycle.
