My child keeps getting ear infections. What can I do to prevent it and help him feel better when he does get it?
Recurring ear infections may have a number of causes. If they arise with or after a cold or flu, they may be viral but they may also be connected to environmental or food allergies. Keeping your child's immune system strong may be the fundamental issue for preventing ear infections. Being sure you provide access to healthy organic foods, making sure your child's diet includes essential fatty acids, and avoiding processed foods are the best preventative approach. A number of ear infection sufferers have had good results with chiropractic care and that may be an option to pursue. Craniosacral therapy and homeopathy also both offer holistic options for relieving pain and helping the body to heal naturally.Check Out Our Related Content:
