  • Abdominal pain
  • Nausea/Vomiting
  • Headache
  • Long term use leads to bacterial resistance
  • Causes yeast infection
  • Causes kidney toxicity

Heal ear infections naturally:

Your body is created to heal itself of everything from a bacterial ear infection to heart disease and even cancer. You have an immune system that is fearfully and wonderfully designed to kill dangerous bacteria, viruses and even cancer cells. And you have a nervous system that controls and coordinates the whole process.

Ultimately, an ear infection is an indication that something is interfering with your body’s innate ability to heal itself. The first step to healing is to identify and remove this interference.

The interference to healing normally occurs in these areas:

Your nervous system: Your nervous system controls all health and healing in your body. If there is interference in the nerves controlling your immune system, then you will not be able to heal normally.

Toxicity: Toxicity comes from refined sugar, chemicals in processed and fast foods, unhealthy fats and in MSG. Toxicity also interferes with every area of your body’s normal functioning.

Nutritional Deficiency: If you are not giving your body a good supply of high quality protein, healthy fats, vitamins and minerals, then you will have an antibody deficiency that makes it very difficult for your immune system to function normally.

Diet Considerations:

Eliminate sugar

Sugar inhibits the cells of your immune system. It prevents them from killing off bacteria and viruses effectively. This then turns off your immune system response, allowing infection and illness to develop.

Eliminate processed foods

Processed foods are filled with many unnatural, toxic chemicals including MSG. These toxins create disease in your body. If your body is over burdened with toxins, your immune system will not function well.

Consume healthy protein

Your body needs protein to build antibodies. Vegetables are a good source of healthy protein. Avoid commercially raised animal protein as they tend to contain many dangerous toxins, hormones and antibodies. If you consume animal protein, it must come from an organic, grass fed source.

Consume healthy fats:

The best fat to use daily is coconut oil; it has antibiotic and antiviral properties. It will kill bad bacteria and viruses in your body. Your body requires healthy fats to build healthy cells and prevent inflammation.

Correcting the cause is the key to healing any illness or disease. However, there are some quick relief methods to try when you or your child is dealing with ear infection that can help avoid the use of dangerous antibiotics.

Mullein and Garlic drops: Mullein and garlic both have antibacterial properties to help fight infection. They are mixed with olive oil extract which helps sooth inflammation.

Colloidal Silver: This is used for immune system support. It is useful for ear infection and in preventing colds and flu symptoms.

Ear infection is a big problem and can be excruciatingly painful, many parents struggle with making decisions about the safest and best treatment for their children. By addressing the underlying condition and improving your and your child’s diet, you can fight an ear infection without the dangers of antibiotics.
