Earache and Natural Cures

Author: Mitamins Team

Otalgia or earache can occur for a multitude of reasons. The buildup of pressure in the eustachian tube is one of the top causes of earache. Usually the eustachian tube drains fluids out of the middle ear through the back of the throat. Sometimes a cold, allergy or sore throat can cause the eustachian tube to swell up and shut. Tonsillitis and sinus infections also result in earache, especially among children. Sometimes high altitudes or rapid change in altitude, as when flying, can cause earache.

Earache can be an indication of obstruction of the ear canal with a foreign object or earwax. It also may also indicate a perforated or broken eardrum, because of a blow to the head, infection in the inner ear, suction applied to the ear or the insertion of a foreign object into the ear. a€œSwimmer’s eara€ is also a common ear infection. It is an infection of the outer ear structures and happens because water is trapped in the ear canal. Bacteria multiply in the ear canal, causing infection and irritation. In this case the treatment of earache requires treatment of the infection.

There are many homeopathic and herbal solutions traditionally used in the treatment of earache. Anecdotal evidence has suggested that these have a good effect. Belladonna, a homeopathic medicine is recommended for a throbbing earache, while Chamomilla is given to babies who are also teething. Some common herbal cures used in the treatment of earache are echinacea and goldenseal herbal combination formula. Echinacea and goldenseal are essentially antiviral and they stimulate the immune system.

Garlic, an antibacterial, and may be useful in the treatment of earache through helping to heal an ear infection. A few drops of garlic juice in sesame oil is heated and put into the ear to clear up any infection. Mullein oil is a traditional Native American cure which reduces swelling and inflammation. The oil is warmed to just above body temperature and one or two drops are put into the affected ear. It is important to remember that earaches could be an indication of more complicated problems. If persistent or accompanied by fever, a qualified doctor should be consulted. The treatment of earache, if persistent usually requires a prescribed antibiotic course and possibly eardrops.

    This is a toughy. Are their any natural cures for Lupus DLE and SLE? ?
    Lupus is an Autoimmune disease that triggers inflammation of tissue, joints and organs. Most Orthodox and conventional doctors say their isn’t a cure. However it has been suggested that Omega 3 acids help inflammation. Is their any other suggestions for this disease without having to rely on pharmaceutical drugs? Is there a cure?

    I am so afraid to take plaquenil for lupus treatment! any natural cure?
    Does anyone has an experience with plaquenil? or some one knows a natural way to cure lupus? I am currently taking oil fish, cellfood and recovery( for joint pain) and multi-vitamins.

    I am 30 yrs and was diagnose 8 months ago, no internal organs involves and the only symptoms are fatigue and joints pain.

    Please help if you have experience plaquenil as treatment or someone else. I am afraid of side effects ( affects lung, kidney, bones , eye etc.) it help now but causes you trouble later on.

    I am going to see my rhumatologist tomorrow but I haven’t decided yet if i am going to start the treatment.

      You do realize what lupus is right?

      Listen, I know you’re scared. Anybody would be with that diagnosis. But the drugs are safe. The side-effects are minimal. Not taking the drugs and pretending that there is a natural cure is dangerous. You need to understand that the drug was prescribed because it was proven effective in the treatment of lupus. There are side-effects with any drug, even natural ones. What you need to do is weigh the potential benefits of taking the drug versus the potential consequences of side effects and of not taking the drug. Lupus is a highly treatable disease but there is no cure for it. The treatments are proven to be effective and safe as long as you follow the doctors orders.

    Do you know any natural,holistic,alternitive cures for lupus?
    wish to help friend who’s in advanced stage…

      First off there is absolutly positively no cure for lupus, believe me I have taking this holistic route…maybe you’ll need to explore it for yourself though because I did. There are things you can do like making sure your body is getting enough nutrients, vitamins, etc. Living life healthfully is the best thing you can do and might help your body at least get a little on track….but by no means a cure. Also ginger is supposively a good natural anti-inflamatory, but it will in no way do anything really substantial, afterall ibuprofin is an anti-inflamatory too but doesn’t do anything for me but take the edge off. The best thing you can do is talk to your doctor and find the least hardcore medication that works for you and while you take it be sure your body has everything else it needs, but you’ll never cure it.

    Ppl who have lupus, or have had it, do you think chelation therapy can cure you?
    I have lupus and Ive been researching for ONLY natural, drug-free medecines to reverse all symptoms of lupus. If anyone has been cured by chelation thereapy or any other way, please let me know!!! im dying………..

    1. Dr. House

      Do you have any idea how toxic chelation therapy can be? There are hundreds of different side effects ranging from cardiac arrhythmias to kidney failure as side effects associated with chelating agents. Certain chelating agnets like penicillamine, a copper chelating agent, actually causes lupus like symptoms in an otherwise normal individual. You want to try to look for natural drug-free medications to rever symptoms of lupus? Your search for this natural curing chelating agent will probably kill you before your ignorance realizes that actual medications are 100x safer.

    Anybody with skin lupus?
    I would like to hear from anyone who knows a natural cure for skin lupus.

    1. grandma18

      I have skin lupus (discoid Lupus) and there isn’t really a cure for it. Stay out of the sun or wear sun screen year round and a hat. I go to a dermatologist who gives me different creams when I get the small raised sores on my arms. He also put me on a medicine call plaquenel which is a malaria medicine but it seems to help. I have to have a thorough eye check due to the fact it could cause blindness. I have been on it for a year now and no problems. Good luck finding a natural cure. If you do I would definitely be interested.
