Bryce Finn Parker
My son’s name is Bryce Finn Parker and he is four and a half years old. He is an active fun loving little boy, but he has suffered with allergies, which resulted in ear infections, since he was two and a half years in age. The signs of allergies he would show were rashes on his face and torso and puffy eyes. He also complained of headaches and earaches. The rashes became so severe that we consulted an allergist in June of 1999. We had initial success with his treatment with Zyrtec, but began seeing diminishing results with the medicine by December 1999. The doctor recommended that we add Flonase a steroid medication, to treat the allergies to dust mites. This medication was to reduce inflammation and reduce fluid in his ears, which led to ear infections. We tried this medicine for two weeks with no visible difference in Bryce’s condition. In March of 2000, Bryce began to show sings of asthma. He wheezed and had coughing spells that lasted for about 10 minutes or longer. He had trouble catching his breath, so we made an emergency trip to the doctor. The doctor immediately gave him prednisne, a steroid to stop the cough, and prescribed Singular, to take along with the Zyrtec. He again recommended Flonase, but we refused. Even though, Bryce was taking two allergy medication and still showing signs of his allergies we questioned the doctor about the effectiveness of Bryce’s medications. The doctor became irritated, but still decided to continue his plan of care. My husband and I saw an article about Chiropractic care benefits one of which included ear drainage and reduction of ear infections. The article also listed chiropractic as an alternative to tubes. We met Dr. Jeff, went to a health talk, and started treatment three weeks ago. Bryce no longer complains of itchy or achy ears, he has no signs of asthma, and no longer takes any medication other than vitamin C. My husband and I recommend to all parents to try this as an alternative to prescription drugs and tube implants for their children. We are amazed by the results just after three weeks and know that this will maintain his health through the cold season.
Sincerely a chiropractic believer,
