If you are one of the many people who who have experienced an ear infection or have consoled a child with an ear infection, then you know just how painful it can be!
Many people are so eager to get rid of the pain that they rush off the ER or Urgent Care to get antibiotics and painkillers. There is no need to expose your body - or your child's body! - to those toxic substances pushed by Western medicine as the "only option" when there are many easy and cheap or even free alternative solutions available!
Here is a very simple & natural approach to quickly address an ear infection at home:
1. There are many natural items you can add to your diet that fight infections - raw garlic, turmeric, ginger, oregano, apple cider vinegar, greens, berries, honey, and coconut oil are just a few suggestions! Raw garlic (or a supplement) are classic infection fighters and extremely effective, but some children do not like to take it.
2. Take high quality colloidal silver! There are 650 diseases it is known to eradicate, and it's safe, fast, effective, and gentle. You can take a drop internally and administer a few drops of 35 nm, 100 ppm colloidal silver directly into the infected ear a few times a day. Silver's amazing oligodynamic effect will destroy viral, bacterial, and fungal infections!
This amazing health supplement will have you on the right track to killing off the infection in no time! If you don't have this product in your home already, it is a must for any natural medicine chest. Read about the MANY benefits of colloidal silver HERE. Note that not all colloidal silvers are the same; do your research to understand why the Garden of Eden offers the highest quality we have found. Here are some sources where you can continue your research!
3. Now that the process of killing the infection has started, you want to address pain management, because all that fluid in the ears can cause a great deal of discomfort! If you do some searches online, you will find a ton of different ways to address the pain - garlic cloves tapped into the ear, warm heat like a blow dryer, blowing smoke in the ear are just a few suggestions, although they are not necessarily the best options for children.
Salt is a quick, very cost-effective alternative that works wonders. Yes, you read that correctly - SALT! Many people keep salt in their homes for many uses already, and Epsom salt works especially well for a hot compress because of the larger crystals.
Here is how to make a hot salt compress to manage ear pain:
Find a clean sock large enough to cover the infected ear.
Get enough salt to not quite fill the sock and put it in a pan on very low heat for a few minutes to warm it up.
When the salt is warm, scoop it into the sock, and either tie off the end of the sock or close it with something else like a twist tie, hair band, etc.
Place the sock full of warm salt up against the infected ear for about 10 minutes at a time.
The warmth and the salt helps to draw out moisture in the ear from the infection and relieve swelling, which will alleviate pressure and thus pain.
You can repeat this as many times as needed during the course of an infection.
Colloidal gold is another pain relief remedy: simply administer a few drops of 18 nm, 50 ppm colloidal gold to the infected ear a few times a day. You can administer at the same time as colloidal silver if you wish. It is antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory and renowned for its ability to relieve pain.
Easy. Cheap. Natural. Simple. Non-toxic.
We hope this will inspire you to do additional research and work towards the best possible health for yourself!
