Once again, Western medicine can't see the forest because all those
trees are in the way. The root cause of childrens' ear infections is
nothing other than the rampant consumption of cow's milk, a liquid food
that directly promotes asthma, constipation, and chronic sinus
conditions in both children and adults. Why? Because cow's milk is the
breast milk of another species, and it is nutritionally imbalanced for
human consumption. That's why so many humans are allergic to cow's milk
and can't digest it properly.
Children are routinely told to "drink
their milk" but, in reality, they'd be far better off without it. If you
have children, try this yourself: take them off all dairy products for
30 days and see if you don't notice dramatic results in their health.
They will have fewer colds, fewer ear infections, and if they previously
showed symptoms of asthma, those symptoms will frequently vanish. They
will have easier bowel movements, improved immune system function and
they'll be avoiding a liquid food that's nutritionally skewed. I've seen
the avoidance of dairy products work miracles for children.
about their calcium intake? The "good for your bones" myth about cow's
milk is nothing more than marketing propaganda. In reality, children
need more natural sunlight (since Vitamin D is critical for bones) and
can get ample calcium from other sources such as green vegetables. A cup
of broccoli juice has more calcium than a cup of milk. Also, make sure
they supplement with magnesium, since most children in the U.S. are
deficient in that mineral, and magnesium deficiencies inhibit the
utilization of calcium.
Finally, make sure your children get plenty
of physical exercise. The way to grow strong bones is to stress those
bones through exercise. As bones are stressed, the body automatically
deposits more minerals to make them stronger.
See, in the end,
children don't need cow's milk at all. That is, unless your children are
furry, walk on four legs, and moo.
Samir Ghadiali, professor of mechanical engineering and mechanics at
Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pa., thinks there is a better way to
tackle the problem.
Ghadiali, a member of Lehigh's Bioengineering and Life Sciences
Program, studies the biomechanical and biophysical properties that
govern the eustachian tube, which connects the middle ear to the back of
the nose and the upper throat and which helps to regulate air pressure
inside the ear.
In healthy adults, it opens and closes three or four times a day, and
more frequently when an excursion into higher altitudes causes a change
in air pressure and triggers the ears to pop.
