Recurrent Ear & Respiratory Infections

The common cold is a self-limiting viral infection of the nose and throat. Children under six years old have around six to eight colds per year. Older children have an average of two to four colds per year. A child with a cold typically has a runny nose, sneezing, and congestion.

Ear infections are a common problem after a child gets a cold. A child with an ear infection usually complains of ear pain, fever, and trouble hearing from fluid building up in the middle part of the ear behind the eardrum. 

Sore throats can occur from viral and bacterial (strep) infections. A child with a viral sore throat usually has other symptoms: 

  • Runny nose
  • Itchy eyes
  • Cough
  • Congestion

Conventional treatment for the common cold, ear, and throat infections is medication.

“It was overwhelming trying to help our daughter with her recurrent ear and throat infections. Dr. Sue got to the root of the problem with her health plan, and it worked! She recovers from colds quicker and no longer gets ear or throat infections. Now our daughter is happy, rarely misses school, and she’s gaining awareness of how different foods can make her feel. It’s a journey as we continue to fine-tune things, but overall it feels very empowering.” – Kristy Howard


“Helping my children with recurrent colds was hard. Dr. Sue’s health plan pointed me in the right direction and helped my kids get healthier and stronger. Now they fight off colds within a day or two, and nothing ever comes of it. Life is easier now that we don’t have to deal with illness after illness all the time.” – Carolyn Herrmann
