My son, who is 4 years old, has had several ear and sinus infections due to severe allergies. He is frequently on antibiotics, and he has been on Allegra every day for the past 2 years.
This past winter my son had a sinus and ear infection that would not resolve. The doctors put him on 3 separate rounds of antibiotics, each round getting stronger. After the third round, his sinus infection was still there!
So next we were sent to an ENT physician, who performed a CT scan (CAT scan). The scan results indicated that my son did still have the sinus infection.
With a loss of hope, the ENT physician recommended that we have a sinuplasty performed on our 4-year-old! I left the office very uncomfortable and feeling like there just had to be another way to remedy my son's infection.
After weeks of trial and error, we finally found a regimen of essential oils that work for my son. In the beginning, Oregano essential oil was the saving grace for getting rid of the infection. We would also put some colloidal silver into a neti pot and flush his nose every day.
Then each night I would rub Breathe Again on my son's chest, and we started diffusing essential oils each night as well. I would rotate filling the diffuser with Lavender, German Chamomile, RC, and Thieves.
Then after a ZYTO Compass scan, we tried Wintergreen and Harmony. I did not notice a huge difference with Wintergreen, but I did notice a substantial difference with Harmony! This essential oil is a daily necessity for my son. I diffuse it and sometimes rub it on his chest too. Harmony also smells good, which helps as well!
At times of major allergy attacks, I will also put some Lavender and Lemon in a spoonful of honey and administer it to my son, who, by the way, is now off all his allergy meds!
