Let's look at immune dysregulation.
80% of our immune systems are located in our intestinal tracts. When you take an "antibiotic" you destroy the life in your intestinal tract and thus your immune system. Antibiotics were created for life threatening emergencies to pass them out for earaches and sore throats is a very bad thing IMO.
Your Gut Biotics are part of YOU
“Normal people generally have some cancer cells, Candida yeast, E. coli, staphylococcus, strep, and any number of other potentially bad organisms you can think of in their tract most of the time. But they don't get any disease. ... E. coli is actually a probiotic when held in check by normal friendly flora. It's only when the friendly probiotic bacteria get killed off that the potentially bad organisms get a chance to get a foothold and take over.” The Doctor Within
"Also lactobacillus found in the colon and vagina produce hydrogen peroxide. This destroys harmful bacteria and viruses, preventing colon disease, vaginitis, bladder infections and a host of other common ailments. When lactobacillus in the colon or vaginal tract have been overrun effective douche or enema solution can be made using 3 tablespoons of 3% H202 in 1 quart of distilled water. Keep in mind, however, that a good bacterial flora must always be re-established in theses areas to achieve lasting results.” Doctor David Williams MD
"Friendly bacteria are a significant part of the primary defenses in all the vulnerable open areas of our body where their friendly biofilm protects us from countless pathogens. This is especially true in the gastrointestinal and female genital tracts but it holds for the nose and upper respiratory tract as well." Doctor Lon Jones D.O.
"We should consider not how to kill microorganisms but rather how to make them our friends and allies; how to use them in ways that encourage their proliferation in out foods." Claude Aubert
Drug Antibiotics wipe out your intestinal flora, the good bacteria that your body uses for MANY functions, including the production of many vitamins. Killing these friendly bacteria as Drug Antibiotics do has MANY negative effects on your health. IMO do not take Drug Antibiotics UNLESS your doctor can make a good case that your life will be in jeopardy without them. First try the natural antibiotics listed below. These natural substances DO NOT kill your intestinal flora. Keeping a high level of natural antibiotics circulating in your blood stream will help protect you against any bacterium you may encounter. You MUST research this enough to realize the IMMENSE long-term harm Drug Antibiotics can cause you. When taking Drug Antibiotics you MUST also concurrently take probiotics. Take the pro-life probiotics three hours or so apart from the killer toxic drug antibiotics.
Middle Ear Infections
“90% of upper respiratory infections, including children's ear infections, are viral, and antibiotics don't treat viral infection. More than 40% of about 50 million prescriptions for antibiotics each year in physicians' offices were inappropriate." CDC
“I have treated many hundreds perhaps thousands of cases of ear infections with echinacea and I know it works. I rarely have to give antibiotics or use tubes to clear up these infections.” Doctor Jay Gordon, Pediatrician Cedars Sinai MC
"The best way to prevent allergy in infants is to breast feed them. Children who are allergic to foods often have fluids in the ear tube leading to infections." Prevention
“80 out of 100 children, if given only medication to reduce pain or fever, would recover from an acute ear infection within a few days. If they were given antibiotics instead, the number would rise only to 92 -- and 3 to 10 of the children would develop a rash, while 5 to 10 would develop diarrhea.” Journal of the American Medical Association November 17, 2010; 304(19):2161-2169 , Note if you forget the “medication” and allow the fever you will see even better results IMO How to treat ear infections Doctor Mercola
"We found in our clinical practice an over 90% reduction in middle ear problems with the kids using xylitol for their teeth." Doctor Lon Jones D.O. Note Doctor Jones also had good results using xylitol with colds, allergies, ear infections, sinus infections and dental health.
"I hope with the publication of this book more pediatricians will get their earache patients using xylitol." Doctor Lon Jones D.O.
Giving a child Drug Antibiotics for a middle ear infection is almost never a good idea. Anti-biotics are vastly over prescribed presumably to induce the placebo effect in the paying stiff. Fine, use SUGAR PILLS, please. Believe it or not Drug Anti-biotics are STILL given for viruses. But please don’t YOU be so foolish as to accept this insane “Prescription”.
IMO much of middle ear problems in children are due to the; "Vaccination", infection, antibiotics, "vaccination" CYCLE our kids are CONSTANTLY subjected to. The "vaccination" and antibiotics part of this cycle have a trivial solution.
