Have you had surgery of tonsils and / or adenoids as a child, dental amalgam fillings, an arsenal of antibiotics and newborn / childhood vaccinations? Have you suffered from annual Inner Ear and Sinus Infections or repeated Ear Ringing when you were young? Or have those symptoms even as an adult, plus hormonal issues (miscarriages, low sperm count, moodswings, pains etc)?
Well, then, it might be a good time, to scan and review your health history right up to how you are now. All body systems are connected. And absolute key for your well-being are the cardiovascular system, immune system, endocrine / glandular system, nervous system and brain. Connect the dots! Especially health issues which you experienced as child in and around your head – infection of the Inner Ear, Sinuses and / or Adenoids – are NO coincidence.
The adenoids are small lumps of soft tissue found at the back of the nose in children. They are part of the immune system and help to fight infections. They are made of the same tissue as lymph nodes (glands). Variations in size and shape of adenoids are normal.
If the adenoids get infected and swollen, they can cause ear and breathing problems. Swollen adenoids can cause an Inner Ear Infection, and vice versa, Inner Ear Infection can cause swollen adenoids.
The root cause is typically extreme stress, an allergy or a reaction to medication. For example, allergies trigger immune reactions. When allergens reach the adenoids, the immune system triggers inflammation in response and the adenoids swell. Chronic allergies can create persistently swollen adenoids.
An Adenoidectomy (surgical removal of the adenoid) is often performed without checking the real reason of the swelling. And of course the removal can cause issues as well because adenoids are part of the immune system.
If you research this subject, you notice that the effectiveness of removing the adenoids in children has not even been well studied.
The rootcause for chronic infections of ears and / or adenoids is likely linked to your upbringing and family environment. With a standardised allopathic overmedication including vaccinations on the one hand, and emotional tumoil with parents and siblings on the other hand. Issues that you probably do not even remember anymore but which are imprinted in the subconscious. Were you emotionally and spiritually neglected as child? Have you had an emotionally, physically unsettling or abusive childhood?
