Big Pharma unleashes breathless-baby epidemic
They say hell hath no fury like a woman scorned -- but a sick, agitated baby could give that gal a run for her money.
There's nothing more terrifying than hearing your baby scream his lungs out, sick with a cold or fever, struggling to get comfortable. If you're like most folks, you're willing to use whatever antibiotic concoction the mainstream hands you to help him breathe a little easier.
But that temporary relief may end up costing your child more than you ever imagined.
Because it turns out the second you give your baby that first dropper-full of antibiotics, you may be sentencing him to a lifetime of wheezing, coughing, and sitting on the sidelines with asthma.
British researchers studied more than 1,000 kids and found that those who were exposed to antibiotics early in life had DOUBLE the risk of developing asthma. That's because antibiotics can disrupt the development of your child's immune system, and it could leave him battling allergies the rest of his life.
Mainstream docs like to hand out antibiotics like candy for ear infections and even colds, but trust me -- these drugs are more trick than treat. And a childhood filled with antibiotics could leave your kid wheezing, gasping for breath, and even unable to fight off the deadly infections that are spreading like wildfire all over the world.
If you have a fussy baby, sometimes the best solution is to let his immune system work --and keep him away from Big Pharma's poison. A doctor skilled in integrative medicine can help you make the best decision for your little one. Letting him fight a little sickness now could help prevent much more serious -- and life-threatening -- illness down the road.
