Earache

Studies were done in America examining the exudate from children with otitis media (middle ear infection). It was found that in more than two-thirds of those examined the cause of the infection was Chlamydia – presumably picked up in the birth canal. Other causes were varied but included B strep.

It is said that 25% of the population of America has Chlamydia. In one count up, some time ago, we found that 22% of people coming to Foresight had it. It is quite likely therefore that the situation is approximately the same over here.

This is one of the reasons, apart from miscarriage, why it is so important to always check out for genito-urinary infections prior to conception.

If a baby is screaming with pain and the eardrum might be likely to burst, causing deafness, then the use of antibiotics as an emergency measure may be inevitable.

Afterwards however, it is worth giving Vitamin drops and Ziman (Zinc, Manganese and B6) drops to build up the immunity. It would also be worth taking her/him to a homeopath to ascertain the identity of the bug, and get a remedy prescribed.

Success Story

"We came across Foresight as we decided to try for our first child (we had previously had a miscarriage). We understood it as a different approach to healthy living and have kept on, despite not planning any more children, a lot of your principles and advice in our daily routine. We get our fresh produce (fruit, veg, dairy, eggs, meat) delivered from local organic farms and have not found our bills going up, as we stick to what we get! I threw aluminium cookware out and replaced it for glass or stainless steel and cut out artificially composed foods. We also did hair analysis and have been filtering our water for almost 4 years now (we have now invested in an osmosis filter) as our heavy metals were quite high.

We got pregnant immediately on both occasions and my pregnancies and births were both very straight forward (one water birth, one natural) and we now have two bright and healthy sparks challenging our existence (you didn't warn us about that!!)

I thank you for the encouragement on breastfeeding as I have a predisposition to hayfever and it seems that, so far, my children haven't got any! This, in my mind, is due to their healthy start in life thanks to your leadership and inspiration."
