Natural Cure for Bacterial Ear Infections.

Natural cure for a bacterial ear infection and why antibiotics are not good to use unless it's a last resort.

In this day and age, during economic crisis and the destruction of health care sick people seem to find themselves in a bind. They ask the question, “Do I pay hundreds of dollars to go to the Dr. that I simply just don’t have? Or , medicate myself?” The skyrocketing fees for doctor visits and fees for prescriptions are taking a toll on Americans. Slight relief has come from pharmacies and their four dollar drug plans but antibiotics can still be pretty pricey for your wallet and your long term health.

Current natural health research suggests that these antibiotics kill healthy bacteria and leave a build up of Candida (yeast) in your system . This over growth of Candida can create and be the root of numerous health conditions such as, headaches, acne, eczema, allergies, sinus problems, ear problems, constipation and many more ailments.

Candida problems caused by this over growth can take place years or even decades after the antibiotics were taken depending on dietary habits. Along with the over growth of Candida, the use of prescription antibiotics cause other problems as well. Once a patient begins a regime of antibiotics they must take the full course of the dose even when they feel better to make sure the offending bacteria does not spring back and re-infect them. The over use of antibiotics also causes a problem in the human body, whereas some bacterial growths will become accustom to these antibiotics, thus rendering them useless. Merck a major research and pharmaceutical company states on its website, “Bacteria can develop a resistance to the effects of antibiotics.” Also stated on their website under antibiotic information is, “Although doctors try to use antibiotics for specific bacterial infections, they sometimes start antibiotics without waiting for tests that identify the specific bacteria.” This statement proves how the overuse of antibiotics can cause a major problem when you might need them most and your body has developed a resistance due to unnecessary antibiotic use.

Enter the natural health alternatives that are making a huge breakthrough all over the internet and in book stores, magazine articles and the various vitamin and supplement shops that have opened around the country. Most of the information about natural cures is down played or ignored by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) . Yet, there are thousands of people who swear by these natural cures and remedies. One might be overwhelmed with information but if you take natural cures that you can understand and try inexpensively for bacterial infections it might be worth trying it for a day or two at home before you run to the doctor.

A case in point would be the common bacterial ear infection that some children and adults find themselves plagued with numerous times a year. A cheap inexpensive natural cure for an ear infection is the use of raw onion juice. Onions have natural antibiotic and antiseptic properties.

At the first sign of earache take one yellow or white onion cut in half and take a spoon and scrape half of the onion until juice accumulates on a small plate. Another way to get the juice is cut some onion and then press down on it with a butter knife until juice squeezes out onto the plate. Take a clean and sterile ear dropper and suck up a few drops of juice from a small plate and then tilt head and drop into affected ear. You may want to have the person lay on one side for 5 to 10 minutes for juice to settle into ear canal. Repeat 2 to 3 times daily. Alleviation of pain should be almost immediate in the infected ear. One should not use this method in a perforated ear. If there is no relief within two days use personal judgment when to see a doctor.
