Question: How can I prevent ear infections in my children?
Dr. Blaylock's Answer:
There are several things that can be done, the simplest is to stop letting them consume cow's milk products — milk, cheese, etc. Cow’s milk is strongly related to recurrent ear infections.
Other food allergies are also linked to recurrent ear infections. Testing for food allergies may be necessary. Equally important, give them higher doses of vitamin D3.
A friend of mine’s small children experienced repeated ear infections every year and this meant a lot of trips to the pediatrician and the children being on dangerous antibiotics.
For this case, I suggested vitamin D3 in a dose of 1,000 IU for his children under 1 year and 2,000 IU for his children over that age.
For the first time, his children have had no more ear infections. This is supported by medical literature.
Because antibiotics used for ear infections kill the beneficial bacteria in the bowel, children
could benefit from probiotics twice a day during treatment and then once a week after they are off the antibiotics.
