In her interview that can be found on Development Delay Resources, Kelly Dorfman also says: "The problem with tubes is the problem that you have with drainage situation. If you have a river running through your backyard, you can put in a gutter but you still have water running through and you want to look at why that might be. So you can drain the gunk out of your ears, but the question is why there is gunk and what is causing the immune system to react to that. Just because you drain it out it doesn't mean the immune system is happy. It just means it has a big tube that it can pour the poisons out. It's still generating way too much immune system debris and that is the underlying problem that needs to be addressed." Kelly Dorfman, is a nutritionist who started Developmental Delay Resources.
