The importance of spinal care in children is one of the most overlooked factors when it comes to assessing their health. We teach our children to use the potty, brush their teeth and to wash themselves, but we fail to teach them anything when it comes to their spine.
IT’S NOT YOUR FAULT! Chances are the most exposure to spinal care you had growing up was your mother’s persistence to “sit up straight” at the dinner table.
It’s never too late to start a path to spinal wellness for yourself or your children. Common adult-related health issues (back/hip/neck pain, chronic headaches, E.D., and infertility to name a few) begin with a poorly maintained spine as a child.

Do you know the facts?
167,000 children undergo evasive ear tube surgery without good cause. PER YEAR!
Ear tubes are prone to falling out, which requires additional surgery to re-insert them.
A surgeon makes a hole in your child’s ear drum, and the tube is inserted through it. (You actually have to damage the ear drum for this to work? Sounds suspect!)
Ear infections can be both BACTERIAL and VIRAL
Antibiotics WILL NOT treat ear infections that are viral.
Overuse of antibiotics kills good bacteria. (Like the bacteria in that helps digestion in your stomach and intestines.) Is it any wonder then, one of the side-effects of antibiotic use is upset stomach, nausea and diarrhea?
Overusing antibiotics creates drug-resistant BAD bacteria.
To the parents
I must preface that there are Medical Doctors who hold their patient’s care as paramount to their success as their caregiver.
However, concerned parents express their frustration to me about how they feel there aren’t enough options given to them by their Medical Doctor. Often times they are not given an option, just a Doctor’s insistence on “this is how it needs to be.”
A concerned mother came into my office one morning in utter disbelief that her son’s Medical Doctor was pushing ear tube procedures onto her as if it were the standard rather than the exception.
I was shocked when another mother told me her son was on his 4TH ROUND of antibiotics for ear infections within the last few months! THIS CHILD IS ONLY 3 YEARS OLD.
That is not ok.
The Pediatrician has ignored the possibly of the infection being viral. The waste of time and money going to this Pediatrician pales in comparison to huge health risks that face this poor child.
Take the time to do the research. The opportunity to ensure the best health for your children can only be accomplished if you are properly informed.
When you have the knowledge for yourself, you can make the best decision for you and your family!
