I have a lot of parents, who have heard about the benefits of chiropractic adjustments for children with ear infections. Many children have taken antibiotic after antibiotic after antibiotic; while their ear infections keep recurring. The question in every parent’s mind is: Why does this keep happening? Is there another way?
The answer to that question is complex, but not for the reason you would think.
The reality is that chiropractic is not a cure for ANYTHING. Chiropractic is not even a cure for lower back pain, neck pain, or headaches.
Don’t get me wrong, I have had a LOT of children under my care who have had their ear infections clear up after a specific adjustment; and many of those children, when maintained under care, stop getting ear infections altogether. In fact, most parents report that their children get sick much less while under regular care.
As a society, we have been programmed to think that we need to find cures for each disease out there. We view disease as an entity that must be combated with various treatments, instead of a process that happens when you lose your natural state of health. This is a way of thinking that has been going on since the 1800’s.
Your body, has the capacity to heal. Unfortunately, we are strongly influenced by the pharmaceutical industry (which spends $64 million dollars per day on advertising), that this is not the case; and that you need a pill to fix everything.
The average person will have cancer six or seven times in their lifetime, and not even be aware of it. The reason they are unaware of it, is because our immune cells are constantly destroying cancer cells without our conscious awareness. Our body is capable of healing at a much higher capacity than we give it credit for.
For your body to heal, however, you need to have an optimal nerve supply. This is the essence of what we do in the office. Misaligned vertebra interfere with that nerve flow, and can prevent your body from healing appropriately. By correcting those misalignments (vertebral subluxations) those signals can flow from your brain to your different tissues as they are meant to.
The dirty truth is simply this: children who get adjusted simply get less ear infections! Overall, they get sick less and take less medications. I would much rather see your children, and help them BEFORE they get sick.
A study, published in the Chiropractic Research Journal, compared the health and wellness of 200 children under Chiropractic care to 200 children under conventional medical care. The Chiropractic group had fewer ear infections, fewer allergies, and fewer cases of tonsillitis and asthma. The health of the children under Chiropractic care was demonstrably superior to the children who had not received it.
We are initiating a series of in-person community talks that will be covering a variety of controversial and important health topics. These are FREE to the community and residents of the Greater Newburyport area.
If you would like us to notify you of when and where these talks will occur, or if you would like health insight newsletters delivered directly to your email address, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call our office at (978)-462-2971.
I am also more than happy to travel to offices, church groups, classrooms, and organizations to educate on these important health topics.
Yours in Health,
Dr. Sean Carey
