Often, the area in which ill health most convinces a family to turn to homeopathy is in curing ear infections. Children have not always been plagued by ear infections. In my generation the illness “du jour” was tonsillitis and the “cure” was removal. Today, because of the advent of sonograms during pregnancy, ear infections occurring months after birth are prevalent. The reason for this is that sonograms use high-pitched sound that surrounds the delicate and forming fetal ears. Studies, as well as a good dose of common sense, suggest the detrimental nature of this practice.
Before I studied homeopathy, I considered purchasing an otoscope so that I would know the status of my children’s ears during an infection. Now my homeopathic experience tells me that there is no need to search deeper.
The most exciting part of homeopathy is that addressing one ear infection via the correct remedy will pave the way for an uprooting of the propensity toward reoccurrence.
