    Default Natural Remedies, Was Earache

    >>you think it's all gone but the bacteria is still floating around which is
    >>why they say to take the antibiotics for 10 days to make sure you have
    >>completely wiped out the bacteria.<<

    I was also going to say, as an alternative, Fresh garlic is a natural
    antibiotic.

    For adults, Take two cloves of raw garlic.
    Mince it finely, put on a spoon, and swallow with water. Do this with each
    meal for a total of 6 cloves daily. 2 cloves will equal approximately 1
    teaspoon. At 6 cloves daily, you have reached the strength of an antibiotic
    or antiviral agent.

    For children, adjust dosage per body weight. General guidelines are:

    a.. ages 2-4 years 2 cloves daily
    b.. ages 4-9 years 3 cloves daily
    c.. ages 9-12 years 4 cloves daily
    d.. ages 12 years to adults 6 cloves daily
    Administer the garlic in three sessions per day. The raw garlic is the
    most effective over and above any of the best quality tablets.

    If you choose to take a garlic supplement, choose a product that uses a
    quick cool-dried process which results in a powder with all the original
    sulfides present. Because of the processing of garlic oil capsules, crushed
    garlic, conventional high-heat drying and tableting, freeze-dried tableting,
    and aged odorless processing, these products lack the effectiveness that the
    sulfide allicin can have.

    If garlic worked like the antibiotics we have, we would need to worry
    about bacteria developing a resistance to garlic. However, to date, there is
    no proof that bacteria form resistance to garlic. Studies done by Dr.
    Michael Jackson at the University of California at Davis have shown that
    bacteria do not develop resistance to garlic. It is apparent that garlic
    works more on the offensive attack principle, similar to our own antibodies
    that our immune system produces, and not on the siege principle which our
    antibiotic medicines work from. We have been given a very powerful tool to
    add to our nutritional arsenal in fighting infections naturally.

    Again **Disclaimer**- I'm not a Dr., you are responsible for your own well
    being.

    You can buy swim ear over the counter. There is also one that numbs the ear.
    Sorry, can't remember the name of that.

    Re: Budget101.com : Earache

    Wiggle your ear. Here's a test to help determine whether you have otitis
    externa (an external problem like swimmer's ear) or otitis media (middle ear
    infection). Grab your outer ear, says Donald Kamerer, M.D., chief of the
    Division of Otology at the Eye and Ear Institute in Pittsburgh,
    Pennsylvania. If you can wiggle it without pain, the problem is probably in
    the middle ear. If moving your outer ear causes pain, then the infection is
    probably in the outer ear canal.

    Yes, you can actually pour a capful of peroxide in your ear, allow it to
    set for a minute or two and then hold a washcloth there for a minute. (Be
    sure that you dont have a puncture eardrum though, as this creates an
    unwanted tingling sensation all the way down your throat).
    We use this when strep throat or other infections are going around, it
    works wonderfully.

    As for putting warmed oils in your ears, I wouldn't recommend that unless
    you add something anti-bacterial to the oil first, such as garlic oil,
    mullein oil. The combination of oil & heat is a breeding ground for bacteria
    and may actually increase your problem.

    One thing that works wonderfully is to crush a piece of fresh garlic, roll
    a q-tip in it and apply it in the ear (the oils of the garlic, not chunks!).

    HTH,

    It's great to have you back. What do you do for strep throat? We currently
    have one case at home (hopefully no others will surface)!

    oil to blood temperture and poured it into the ear and then sealed it off

    Either Sweet Oil warmed up and a drop or two in the ear followed by a cotton
    ball or if you don't want to spend the money, you can use vegetable or olive
    oil instead.

    We had a battle with it this past week, first the kids, now myself.
    Actually, most cases of strep throat will resolve themselves in 3-7 with or
    without treatment.

    Personally, I don't believe in running to the doctor for antibiotics
    unless it is truly necessary. What I use on my own children and am currently
    using on myself is an ascorbic acid flush. (Ascorbic acid is simply vitamin
    C in powder form. I got my bottle at walmart, it lasts years).

    I use 1/2 tsp of ascorbic acid powder in 1/4 c. of OJ or warm water every
    30 minutes until saturation is reached. (1/2 tsp = 1,000 milligrams).
    Saturation point is when you begin to have diarrhea. Count the number of
    tsps needed to get to this point, subtract 1 from that amount and the the
    resulting ascorbic acid drink every 4 hours for 1 - 2 days. (Your stool will
    retain a tapioca-like consistency during this time. If it becomes too
    watery, decrease dosage.)

    This works great for getting rid of bacterial infections such as strep.
    Then again, I'm not a doc, I just prefer herbal & or homeopathic remedies to
    antibiotics- which tend to upset the bodies natural chemistry- causing yeast
    infections, etc.

    Not to mention- it's a helluva lot cheaper.

    *disclaimer- do what's best for u, I'm not a doc and I don't play one on tv
    either.*
