Otitis Media: CAM Therapies for Specific Conditions

  • Infants who exclusively engaged in breast-feeding for at least four months had significantly fewer cases of otitis media or middle ear infections. This finding was derived from a large study in 1993 at the University of Arizona. Food allergy was also implicated in ear infections.

 

  • Homeopathy appears to be effective in helping to control ear infections in children. A 1996 study by Dr. K. H. Friese compared homeopathy with antibiotic therapy and found a decrease in pain, and fewer relapses, in children using homeopathy.

 

  • A small body of evidence indicates that spinal manipulation may be of some value for people with otitis media. In a 1996 study, chiropractic was found to have a significantly beneficial effect.
