Beating the Ear Infection-Antibiotic Merry-go-round!
Ear infections are a frequent problem for children. Almost two thirds of children will have at least one ear infection by the time they are 2 years old. Some children can have up to 20 infections in their first year. With such extreme statistics, we need to find a way to not only treat these infections, but also prevent them.

a diet that nurtures the young digestive tract.
