Ear infections are a common aliment when it comes to children. In-fact, 60% of children will have at least one ear infection by the age of 3 and 30% will have more than 1 ear infection by the age of 1. While ear infections are very common 80% of all ear infections improve with no treatment at all. Typical medical treatment is the use of antibiotics, but antibiotics have been proven to heal infections only one day sooner than no pharmaceutical treatment at all. Also, the use of Amoxicillin for treatment of ear infections tends to result in an increased likelihood of recurrence. Natural treatment options for ear infections include chiropractic adjustments, cranial techniques, sinus and lymphatic stripping. Treating ear infections can also be supplemented with at home care. Nutritional modifications can be made such as removal of dairy and sugars, supplementation with Vitamin A, C, Fatty Acids and Zinc. The use of garlic oil eardrops is also extremely affective. The book, Childhood Ear Infections and Beyond Antibiotics, by Michael Schmidt is also a valuable source for information.
