Before we begin talking about the cure of ear infections remember it is always important to identify the symptoms and know what you are dealing with before trying any treatment. I have suffered from ear infections since I was very little and now unfortunately, both of my children have already had multiple infections.
We were tired of making numerous trips to the doctor each month so my grandmother gave me some of her home remedies that have worked like a charm! We have tried everything and these are among the best treatments that I have personally tried! Needless to say we have not been back to the doctor for treatment of an ear infection.
Garlic and Olive Oil Treatment.
You are going to need 4 Large Tablespoons of garlic. Some water some olive oil enough to fully cover the bottom of a sauce pan chop up some onion let it simmer (stir occasionally) until the garlic looks chunky and dry then strain the juice into a bowl or cup and use an eye dropper or syringe and put it into your ear, hold your head sideways for about 5-10 min. Then tilt your head and let the remaining juice come out. You can also place a cotton ball in the ear.
Lemon Juice Treatment
For really bad ear aches/infections squeeze lemon juice in your ear, keep it in for a few seconds, then let it drain out. I usually place a towel or cotton ball over the ear because this gets pretty sticky! The lemon helps to change the Ph levels in your ear. The bacteria is a base, and if you add the lemon, which is an acid, it neutralizes the Ph levels in your ear so that the bacteria cannot live in there.
Warm grated onion slightly in microwave, and drop a few drops of juice into ear with dropper. I used this with both my children when they were infants and it worked immediately! The stopped crying and were able to sleep!
Garlic, Oil and Colloidal Silver Treatment
Put few drops of garlic juice into the infected ear. Use blow dryer from about 12 to 15 inches from your head, this will remove any water trapped in the Eustachian tube. Put some olive oil on the warm spoon; put 2 to 3 drops of this in each ear. Put few drops of lobelia extract into the infected ear and rub it gently. Wash your ear using colloidal silver, it is a natural antibiotic. Slightly warm one teaspoon of juice of the mango leaf and put it into the infected ear drop by drop.
Steam Facial Treatment
Another great home remedy for ear infections involves draping a towel over the head and sitting over a bowl containing hot steaming water and essential oils. There are more then one type of oils that will benefit you, including ginger, peppermint, and eucalyptus. This home remedy is called a steam facial and can help clear up congestion and other symptoms that can aggravate ear infections.
