I have always been opposed to prescription drugs because most have numerous side effects. One drug that is given to children for an ear infection routinely is the antibiotic. That is why many kids end up with another ear infection in just a few short months. The antibiotic’s function is to kill bacteria, that means good and bad bacteria. It seems that once you have completed the prescription your body can no longer fight off infections because there is no good bacteria left. I am no physician but I have interviewed hundreds of Doctors over the course of my career…. oh yea and I am not stupid. That is just the beginning.
