No More Amoxicillin: Preventing and Treating Ear and Respiratory Infections Without Antibiotics
Kensington Books, 1. jan. 1998 - 133 strani
Almost all children will have at least one ear infection by the time they are six years old; an astonishing 75% have three or more. Over $3.5 billion is spent annually on the treatment of ear infections -- primarily with antibiotics. And yet, the facts are clear:
-- Since the advent of antibiotics in the 1940s, the frequency and duration of children's ear infections have increased.
-- Antibiotics actually hinder a child's immune system.
-- And our present overuse of antibiotics is resulting in stronger strains of bacteria that will one day render antibiotics useless.
There is a better way!
As she did in her previous groundbreaking book, No More Ritalin, Dr. Mary Ann Block once again tackles the medical establishment head on, exposing the fallacies of current diagnosis and treatment practices for a common ailment. For the first time anywhere, "No More Amoxicillin" explains what doctors won't: how to identify and heal infections without antibiotics or other expensive medical treatment. In lucid, accessible language, Dr. Block shows why and how childhood ear and respiratory infections should be treated through safer and more effective means, including gentle osteopathic manipulation any parent can learn, the elimination of allergens, using nutritional supplements, and modifying the diet.
Many pediatricians have begun to recognize the abuse and overuse of antibiotics, but they do not have any other solutions. "No More Amoxicillin" offers the safe and effective alternative parents are looking for. Fully documented and easy to understand, it is a book no parent should be without.
