The Osteopath

So, as the saga continues,I scour for a cure for my child’s chronic fluid in the ears.

Off to the osteopath we went.  As familiar i am with Homeopathy, I know nothing about  Osteopathy. Let’s see how Wikipedia defines it:

“Osteopathic principles teach that treatment of the musculoskeletal system (bones, muscles and joints) aids the recuperative powers of the body.”


” These are the four major principles of osteopathy.[8]

  1. The body is a unit. An integrated unit of mind, body, and spirit (Triune of Man – A.T. Still)
  2. The body possesses self-regulatory mechanisms, having the inherent capacity to defend, repair, and remodel itself.
  3. Structure and function are reciprocally inter-related
  4. Rational therapy is based on consideration of the first three principles.”

Ok. This all makes a lot of sense.

It was no picnic really, having my squirming, mommy- I- am- starving, 4-year-old on the bed. I had to make up elaborate stories to keep her there, but all was good. He said the problem was not in her ears at all, but rather came from her lower back and middle back, and back of her neck. this transferred to her head, and this is what is causing a build up of pressure.

A little bit of work to do at home, and another appointment in  months, and we will see.

He said I should see change within 2-3 weeks.  Hubby has just about had it, and said after this if no change, OPERATION.

I am not ruling it out – BUT – doctors do not look at underlying causes. They just treat the symptoms. ( Yes my dear friend the doctor – if you are reading this, it is the truth!)

So maybe we got to the root, and we will fix the problem, completely.
