As a parent you want nothing more than to make sure your kiddos are safe and in good health. On our cleft journey my son has had chronic ear infections, allergies, colds, etc. I strive to keep my kids healthy and prefer to do so holistically. With all of the surgeries and having to go under anesthesia you can understand why I would prefer to lean on more alternative methods for their whole health and well being. I will write and update here about the different modalities of treatment we have tried. Some have been successful and work well, while other treatments have not had the intended effect. On your own journey you will need to decide what methods work for you and your family. As always, consult your physician first and take my posts as informational advice, not medical.
