Infantile colic has been found to affect anywhere from 25-40% of infants. Most babies will outgrow it by about 12 weeks of age but some continue to suffer. Inconsolable babies can take a toll of the parents and care takers of the little one so maybe it’s time to explore some other options besides home remedies and drugs.
Research has found that Chiropractic treatment can decrease the severity of infantile colic and in a number of cases completely cure infantile colic. Chiropractic adjustments for infants are safe, gentle and non-invasive.

We all think that our Doctors have our best interest in mind, but do they really? It has been found that big name pharmaceutical companies have been bribing doctors for years to use their drugs. Although the vacations and dinners at 5 star restaurants have ceased, they are still being played in a variety of ways. One common approach involves asking doctors to speak about the benefits of drugs provided by pharmaceutical companies and then being paid significantly for their time and travel. Resent studies have found some cases where, after speaking and being paid the Physician’s own prescription writing for drug that they spoke of greatly increased benefitting the pharmaceutical companies with over $100,000 in additional sales. This is a blatant conflict of interest. These physicians often use presentations complete with slides and reference points that have been provided by the pharmaceutical companies involved.
Coming in 2013, all doctors that speak about pharmaceutical drugs are going to be placed on a government website. So all patients can know if their doctor is potentially being swindled into thinking that the drug they just spoke about is the new “miracle” drug.
