Home Remedy for Ear infections:

Children are often plagued with ear infections and they're often taken to doctors who ply them with antibiotics. However, antibiotics destroy our healthy bacteria, which is our first line of immune defense. This leaves children, and adults, wide open for numerous health problems later in life after they've taken antibiotics. Ear infections are most often caused by a bacteria, virus, or fungus in the ear and the juice of a few cloves of raw garlic with a little water is an effective natural antibiotic, antiviral, and anti-fungal. This simple mixture can be placed right in the ear a couple times a day as an easy home remedy to beat common ear infections.

However, before you do this, you should know that with ear infections, it can be painful while the garlic is killing what needs to be killed. The pain, however, generally lasts just a few minutes and when the problem is eliminated, there will be no pain even with the same dosage of garlic water.

To make the mixture, juice a few cloves of garlic and strain the juice to ensure it's without chunks or solid residue. Then, add approximately five times as much purified water as garlic juice. Then simply tilt your head to the side and pour in some of the garlic water. Keeping your head cocked to the side, let the garlic juice remain in your ear for a few minutes or as long as you can stand. When you're ready, simply tilt your head to the other side to drain the remainder, and rinse your ear in your next shower. With young children, or if you have a low tolerance for pain, you may want to dilute the juice even further.

It generally takes just a dose or two before the pain - and problem - are eliminated. And most would agree that the momentary pain beats having your immune system compromised for the rest of your life - whether you're an adult or child - just because your doctor didn't tell you how to replenish your healthy bacteria after he or she gave you drugs that destroyed them.

If you've already taken antibiotics and are turning to home remedies as a back plan, it's important to also get started in replacing your healthy bacteria. Having an abundance of these friendly microbes in your gut will help you avoid many problems. Dr. Richard Anderson tells us that one dose of antibiotics can wipe out all of our healthy bacteria.

Healthy bacteria are found naturally in raw fermented foods, including sauerkraut, kim chi, and kombucha. Quality yogurts also contain plenty of healthy bacteria, but yogurt is also mucus-forming which contributes to clogged pathways in the body. In particular, mucus-forming foods contribute to clogged sinuses - and clogged sinuses are connected with ear infections. Due to this, it's better to get your healthy bacteria from vegetable-based sources. Healthy bacteria are also available as supplements known as probiotics. Just be sure to purchase a good brand - and one with at least as much of the Bifidobacteria strain as the Lactobacillus bacteria (acidophilus, etc.) strain.

More Tips
- An easier (and less painful) way to do it is to use garlic oil. All you do is crush a few cloves of garlic, put it in a little jar, and add some olive oil. Let it sit for a week or so and then strain off the oil. It will keep for quite a while so you can make it ahead of time for when you need it. If you want to use the garlic juice I would still mix it with oil instead of water because the oil is theraputic and pain relieving on its own.
- had a friend that had a real bad ear, I suggested he purchase garlic capsules (was a kyolic fan like me) and squeeze some into that ear. He was amazed how quickly it worked. By the end of the day, no more ear pain at all. Only prob was he didn't like smelling like a salad he said!!! = )
- Suggest using a less painful remedy. Take capsule (or 2) of vitamin A, warm it in the palm of your hand; sterilize a pin and prick a hole in the vitamin A capsule, lie on the opposite side of the ear infection & squeeze the contents into your ear while wiggling the ear with you hand to allow the oil to go deep into the ear. Remain lying on your side for a few minutes to allow absorption of the oil.
