I am going to go nuts. I swear my kids have colds or ear infections every couple of months. They don't go to the sitter, they aren't vaxed, they aren't on antibotics a lot (they have had a little)...we buy fresh milk (cow's). I do give them colostrum, vit C, echinacea when I see something coming on. I am just so frustrated by this. My 1 yo dd is still pretty much exclusively bf and that doesn't seem to help much.

My lovely sil said to me today.."why are your kids always sick"? Her vaxed dd is never sick.

My kids are her kid both have the same genetics from her side of the family...ear infections & eczema run in the family. Mine seem to be the ones plagued with these things.

Does anyone have any ideas? I just want to scream.

What kind of wholistic practitioners do you use? I suggest you consult a chiropractor. Many studies and testamonials have supported increased immune response, less ear infections and less "colds" and "flus" among many other benefits such as optimizing IQ!

I have thought about that. We haven't been to see a chiro yet. We have several around here that specialize in family practice stuff. I am not sure exactly how to approach one though..LOL They can't "treat" a symptoms..so what do you make the appointment for?

The chiro will be happy to do a "well-being" adjustment, I have them regularly myself. Often they adjust my children at no charge when the see me
My own suggestion may sound trite, but I cannot believe what a difference washing our hands made!!! DH was on chemo and we could *not* have foreign germs but I couldn't keep the kids in a bubble either, so we washed and washed and washed (especially after touching *anything* outside your home; bannisters, elevator buttons etc ~ your own house doesn't much matter, they're familiar germs), what do ya know? No illnesses for an entire year! You don't need to be a maniac about it, but a shift in consiousness really will make a difference.
