Ear infections can cause a lot of sleepless nights and lots of anguish for the parents. What
most parents do is wait until the problem gets bad enough that they will give the kids baby
aspirin and or a little heavier medication to ease the pain. If that doesn’t work they will go
to urgent care or their doctors office is open or if it is really bad enough to the hospital. In all
these places they usually get an antibiotic and something to get the fever down and a pain killer
so everyone can sleep. This is the normal average procedure. Then when it happens again, and
it will happen again, they go thru the same set of procedures again, with the same result.
Wouldn’t it be nice if you could stop this continue cycle. The way to stop it is by getting to the
cause of the problem.
What is happening in almost all cases is that there is blockage in the eustachian tubes of the ear.
This back up stops the flow of blood and lymphatic flow down that tube. When this happens bacteria
has a chance to grow . When that happens that growth creates pressure and that creates pain. So the antibiotics kills the bacteria, but the original problem, tight muscles that close off the eustachian tubes remains. These tight muscles in the neck and throat continue to slow lymphatic drainage and the problem is ready to return when something caused you to increase mucus flow.
The correction is find and eliminate what ever substance is creating mucus. We call those substances allergens. They can be allergic reactions to animals dander, foods, seasonal allergies, mold or mildew or any other number of mucus producing substances in our environment.
At the Winner Wellness Center is to identify those allergens, open up those restricted lymphatic vessels and strengthen and balance the neck and chest muscles. Once this happens the pathways are open and there is no infection. No infection, no ear pain, no hearing loss.
If you or someone you know has this problem, call the Winner Wellness Center and make an appointment to stop this damaging cycle.
