Research increasingly questions the safety and efficacy of antibiotics in treating ear infections in small children. This guide explores the underlying causes of the problem and suggests new strategies. The author discusses diet, homeopathic care, and children's vitamin absorption process. The book includes a checklist that advises parents when they should take their children to the doctor, and provides specific questions to ask in determining the appropriateness of antibiotics or surgery.
