Van's Ear and Medical Advice
I just want to add a disclaimer. I am not 100 percent for one or the other. I use essential oils; I try to eat healthy, but I also take medicine. I think it's important to research everything yourself. No one person can tell you what to do. There are many people out there pushing one way or the other and I strongly disagree with pushing someone into something and shaming them into something.
My son Van had many ear infections when he was a baby. Because of this he had a lot of fluid in his middle ear that was interfering with his ability to hear. This also led to a delay in his speech and his overall learning. He had surgery to put tubes in his ear, so the fluid could come out the tubes and Van could hear.
I am not a medicine for everything type of person, but I am also not the holistic girl either. I believe in a balance. I know some won't agree, but what you do with your body and your family is your business. So I take my kids to a chiropractor and I go as well. I don't really know if it helps with anything else then my back feeling good. My chiropractor tells not to give my kids vaccinations and to cancel Van's surgery for his ears. He says that if Van gets adjusted three times a week, he won't have any fluid in his ears. Well, that's just great! Let me just tell my son that you may not hear for however long it takes for the Chiropractor to clear your ears. Furthermore, let me get my advice from someone who calls himself a doctor but never went to medical school.
And how am I supposed to get to the chiropractor three times a week! That's a laugh! And when they say that Zelda has autism because of her vaccinations, I cringe. They don't know what causes autism! There are five kids in Devin's family who are on the spectrum! Yet people still say its vaccinations! I am not saying I have all the answers, but let's play would you, rather. Would I rather have Zelda the way she is or Zelda who has or has had mumps, rubella, or any of the other diseases or get a vaccination. So let me take medical advice from the doctor who never went to medical school. Furthermore, what kind of person tells a mother with an autistic child that you gave her autism.
I feel sometimes you need to take medicine, and sometimes you don't. I am tired of the pressure of this chiropractor's office. It is as if he is trying to make me feel bad for choosing medicine.
These blogs are rather old, but I have updated them. Vance had his surgery. He couldn’t hear anything beforehand and not he hears wonderfully. He doesn’t like loud noises, but I think that’s natural from someone who couldn't really hear for a long time.
Yes, Zelda has Autism. When she was four years old, she hardly spoke and now her biggest issue in school is talking too much. Though I will save how wonderful she is for another post.
