Scientific research reveals that children are at a higher risk for asthma when given antibiotics. Find out what every parent needs to know about antibiotics.
Cottesloe Naturopathic Clinic's insight:

Studies indicate that disturbances in children's gastrointestinal flora (the "microbiota") caused by antibiotics contribute to the development of asthma. This article also discusses a study showing that 83% of children with ear infections have acid reflux as a trigger that may be implicated...

For the first time, work in mice shows that dietary fibre, found in fruit and vegetables, influences gut microbes in ways that affect how easily airways
Cottesloe Naturopathic Clinic's insight:

The 1980s and 1990s saw large increases in the incidence of allergy-triggered asthma. Many researchers have linked this to marked changes in diet around the world, including a decrease in the amount of fibre eaten. This research shows that fermentable fibre in the diet causes an increase in gut bacteria that convert this fibre to short chain fatty acids, that in turn reduce allergic lung inflammation...

Cottesloe Naturopathic Clinic's insight:

Dark circles under the eyes are an indicator of allergies and intolerances, and an overactive immune system. This is usually related to a compomised gut lining that allows food proteins to pass through into the blood stream undigested - known as intestinal permeability or "leaky gut syndrome"...

Successful Treatment of Molluscum contagiosum with Homeopathy » Tenpenny Integrative Medical Center

Successful Treatment of Molluscum contagiosum with Homeopathy » Tenpenny Integrative Medical Center | Allergies, immunity and infections | Scoop.it

Molluscum contagisoum is a form of warts caused by a virus that infects the skin. Very common in children, it causes multiple small, fleshy bumps to appear on the trunk, arms, face, and other areas. While not dangerous, molluscum lesions can be itchy, inflamed, and unsightly. The infection is spread by direct contact, and can last for months, or even years

Cottesloe Naturopathic Clinic's insight:

My experience is that in most cases molluscum is easily treated by homeopathy. As this article states it is important to treat the child with an individual constitutional remedy, which can also be combined with a lesional remedy. See the relevant page on our Perth clinic website: www.cottnat.com.au/childrens-problems-treatment.asp

Antibiotics - Is There Another Way? | Allergies, immunity and infections | Scoop.it

Surprisingly, about 70 percent of all antibiotics used in the United States are given in low prophylactic doses to farm animals in an effort to ward off rampant disease on our mega feedlots. If the CDC is right, this practice is causing people to die in increasing numbers from infections that simply won't respond to treatment anymore

Prophylactic antibiotic treatment made it only 11 percent less likely (than placebo) that the pigs would become sick. But homeopathic remedies made it 40 percent less likely....

Homeopathy and Food Allergies | alive

Homeopathy and Food Allergies | alive | Allergies, immunity and infections | Scoop.it
The homeopathic approach to food allergies may surprise some people: food allergies will completely disappear with proper treatment.
Cottesloe Naturopathic Clinic's insight:

Homeopathy views food sensitivities (and allergies, too) as an expression of a disturbance in the patients energetic system. This system keeps all the tissues and organs as well as the emotions and intellectual apparatus functioning at optimum level. Under stress, the energetic system will cause certain symptoms, such as food intolerances or allergies, to appear. These symptoms are not a disease to be cured in themselves, but a reflection of an underlying, deeper malfunction.

Differences between Healing System and Immune System

Differences between Healing System and Immune System | Allergies, immunity and infections | Scoop.it
Homoeopathy works both upon the healing system and the immune system while other systems of medicine work only upon immune system. That is why Homoeopathy is also called the Rational art of Healing.
Cottesloe Naturopathic Clinic's insight:

Homeopathy is a unique system of medicine that works on the body as a whole, and not just on one organ or system. It mobilises the body's defences and all aspects of body healing. The body in its own wisdom then does what it needs to do. Patients usually expect that remedies will "boost their immune system". That may well be the result, but that is a simplified view. This article makes a useful distinction between the immune system and the healing system...

We don’t eat dirt, we’re vaccinated against diseases, we shower every day, we don’t keep animals in the living room and this has led to an imbalance in our immune systems." More animals in the living room I say!
