Journal of Pediatrics Reports Antibiotics For Treating Ear Infections May Cause Permanent Intestinal Damage
The Wall Street Journal and Journal of Pediatrics reported that in recent studies the use of antibiotics for the treatment of Otitis Media (inner ear infections) in children can do significant damage to young digestive systems leading to severe inflammatory conditions like Crohns, IBS, and ulcerative colitis. The studies went so far as to report that the use of antibiotics may in fact cause permanent damage to the gut wall.
Conditions such as leaky gut, chronic diarrhea, inflammatory autoimmune diseases all arise from the overuse of antibiotics. When you consider that chiropractic adjustments helps to improve the function of a child’s immune system and reduces the incidence of ear infections, why would we not adjust the child first before using drugs for ear infections?
