View Full Version : How to cure ear infection?
08-29-2008, 02:02 AM
I seem to have gotten an ear infection last week, I remembered that laying on your side and pouring hydrogen peroxide in the ear and letting it sit/bubble for 10-15 minutes can cure ear infections and this had worked in the past before I was raw. So I did it and again it cured the infection (was gone the next day), but a week later it came back, I just did the peroxide treatment again but am wondering if there's anything else that might help?
I'm surprised I got an infection at all being raw, but I do think I'm not eating enough veggies, I eat mostly fruits and nuts.
Thanks for any tips.

I remember heating up olive oil gently and putting a little in ear. Just keep there for a few minutes and then you can put a little piece of cotton there to hold in remains.
Hubby, from Italy, swears by snakeskin and bet a pets store may be wiling to share that with you from their snakes that shed.
You could be detoxing or have a cold in your body. May think that way. I wouldn't say raw did it, but perhaps a cleaning out raw did stir up. Feel great.

I've used garlic oil for an ear infection, same way as the olive oil mentioned above.

You have to be careful with recurring ear infections. You can lose your hearing if they are not properly treated. It almost happened to me.

I'm guessing it's the same ear infection. The peroxide probably got rid of most but not all the bacteria so the symptoms were gone and it took a week for the bacteria to grow to where the symptoms were felt again.

My daughter fixed an ear infection by using very small amounts of a garlic/mullein ear oil in her ear and oregano oil orally for about a week.
You don't want to gunk up your ear too much, so go easy on anything you put in there. I read that peroxide can damage the tiny bones in the ear. I'd exercise caution with peroxide. I hope you feel all better soon!

EXACTLY what I was going to say!
