Do any of your children suffer from frequent ear infections? My little guy is quite prone to them in the winter season. It's completely genetic as I can recall frequent ear infections and the "purple medicine" that tasted like grapes my mother gave me to cure them.
I'm hoping that as he is turning 4 that maybe he will outgrow some of hisear infections, but if not I'm going to arm myself with some good natural remedies to try to fight them naturally.
Here are some ideas:
- Fresh raw garlic juice applied directly to the ear. (I hear it also keeps the vampires away this time of year!) :)
- A few drops of lobelia extract applied into the infected ear.
- Wash the affected ear with colloidal silver. It's a natural antibiotic.
- Oil of Mullein applied to the ear numbs the pain and has an antibiotic effect. This can be purchased in a store or made at home. Check out my post on mullein for more ideas.
Do any of you have a child that suffers from frequent ear infections? What have you tried that works?
