We interviewed Tony Ebel DC about a holistic approach to ear, nose and throat infections. You can watch the replay below.
What’s at Stake?
Children with ear, nose and throat infections who are conventionally treated with antibiotics are much more likely to develop autism, ADHD, Sensory Processing Disorder, developmental delays and learning disabilities. This is because antibiotics disrupt the gut microbiome, and the gut is:
- The home of the immune system
- The manufacturer of most neurotransmitters
- The processor of nutrients
- Directly linked to the function of the brain
How Can a Holistic Approach Help?
In this webinar, Dr. Tony Ebel explained how birth trauma can lead to vertebral subluxation, which can make an infant more prone to ear, nose and throat infections because it causes fluids to accumulate instead of drain.
Dr. Ebel discussed a holistic approach to treating ear, nose and throat infections can head off more severe outcomes. This approach can include:
- Chiropractic care
- Elimination diet of problematic foods
- Herbal medicines
- Homeopathic remedies
- Nutritional supplementation
- Education about sleep, lifestyle and the immune system
