What to do with an ear infection?
This ear infection is also called otitis media. The word "media" comes from the word "middle". These types of ear infections originate in the middle ear.
The middle ear has a small tube that is about an inch and a half that connects your middle ear to the back of your throat. This tube is typically collapsed, which prevents mucus from backing up into the ear, and it helps equalize the pressure in your ear. The tube also helps drain fluid from the middle ear.
There are several common causes of ear infections.
1. Smoking or being exposed to second-hand smoke
2. Bacterial and viral infections
3. Milk allergies (this is the #1 cause of ear infections in children!)
A drop of colloidal silver can help with ear infections. It has powerful antibacterial and antiviral properties. Garlic oil mixed with olive oil also works very well. Finally, you want to avoid all milk products and sugars.
Children who are breastfed also have lower rates of ear infections than children who are not breastfed.
