Resolving Earaches & Infections

Earaches are not difficult to resolve at home.

The most economical tool is garlic. Garlic oil can be rubbed on the bottoms of the feet, around the ear and dripped in (2 drops in each ear) at night to kill infection. Two cloves of garlic is equal in strength to an adult dose of penicillin.


Combine 1 chopped clove of garlic with 2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil in a covered container.

Let sit for at least 2 hours. The longer the garlic sits in the oil, the stronger the oil becomes. After a few days, or when you’re done using the oil for the time being, strain out the garlic and refrigerate leftover oil for future use. Dr. Christopher makes garlic oil, if you just want to get his.

You can also buy ear oil already made at your health food store. This oil in a dropper should run between $5-$10 a bottle and can be a blend of herbs and garlic. Look for one with mullein in it.

Mullein is an herb which helps with ear pain. If you can’t find it in a pre-made oil, you can buy some cut mullein and add it to your homemade oil. Just strain it out of the oil before you apply it.

Another potent tool for ear infections is essential oil. Basil is best, but thyme, rosemary, eucalyptus, oregano and cinnamon will also work well. These need to be diluted with carrier oil like olive oil or fractionated coconut oil. I only rub these around the ear (not put in ear), or drip them on a cotton ball I lay over ear or I rub on the bottoms of the feet.

Many different oils can be effective because most of them have strong anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties. I rub them on the bottom of my kids’ feet to boost their immune system and help fight infection wherever it may be in their body.

I also give my kids Dr. Christopher’s Kid-e-Well herbal formula internally, which also helps fight infection and boost immunity.

Often, the cause of ear infections is mucus overload in the body. Mucus is formed by many environmental factors, but diet is most often the largest contributor. When mucus sits long enough, Mother Nature uses infection (viruses & bacteria) to devour mucus and “clean house.”

The biggest mucus producers are:

– animal & dairy products (most notably milk, eggs, meat & cheese)

– white flour

– white sugar

– other processed and unnatural foods

These items need to be avoided for a time, at least until the body can cleanse itself without clogging the ear canals or respiratory channels. Water with a few drops of lemon essential oil (I sweeten with Stevia Extract Powder) helps cut mucus faster.

I always give my children a squirt of Kid-e-Reg to make sure the digestive tract is moving to assist the body in getting the junk out.

Prune juice works well, too. Aside from the crooked label, Walmart brand is just fine.

I’m amazed that so many unnatural remedies are used for minor infections, which results in killing off of the healthy flora in the digestive tract and weakening the immune system. Using oils and herbs can not only resolve the problem, but preserves digestive flora and strengthens the immune system.

These natural tools help heal the root cause of ear infections making them less likely to repeat.

Get empowered, get rid of those obnoxious infections and take control of your child’s health!

Believe me, it feels great!
