Fry up the bacon. Nurse the baby. Set the yogurt. Wait…wait – heal an ear infection, too?
Just another day in the life of an Action Hero!
The next time your little one is faced with a painful ear infection, step up and become the family hero. Follow the guidelines below and have the following homeopathic remedies on hand.
Then, take action!
For over 200 years, homeopathic remedies have been shown to alleviate pain and bring healing gently and resolutely….without harsh drugs. Even over the counter drugs are dangerous. Most parents don’t realize that Tylenol is strongly associated with the development of asthma even when used only once a year!
Use homeopathy instead. This is the arsenal of champions.
When choosing a remedy for an ear infection, base your ear infection natural remedy choice as closely as you can on the symptoms your child is experiencing. Do this by matching the totality of the symptoms to one of the following remedies. Once you’ve selected the best match, stick with it for up to four doses. As soon as you see improvement (this can often mean the child simply falls asleep or is content again), then stop the remedy. Resume if pain or other symptoms return. This could happen within hours or even a few days.
Ear infection natural remedies may be repeated every 2-3 hours. The determining factor is the intensity of the symptoms. That is, the more painful the symptoms, the more frequently the administration of the remedy. And don’t worry: these remedies are not only effective but safe even when used frequently.
One tip, however. Do not use these therapies with ear candling as this is an ineffective treatment.
Ear Infection Natural Remedies
1) Belladonna 30 …Think of Belladonna for the early stages of an earache when the symptoms come on quickly, with fury, and the child is overwhelmed by the pain. Another good clue is the distinct color associated with Belladonna: red. The exterior of the ear, as well as the eardrum, might be red.
You may want to purchase your own otoscope if you have enough children and painful ears to justify the expense. I had planned to purchase one with my first child, but because I used homeopathy instead of antibiotics for the first infection he had, I never had to remedy an infection again. That’s how effective these remedies can be.
Homeopathy doesn’t just resolve the infection at hand but encourages the body to protect from subsequent ones.
2) Pulsatilla 30 … The choice in using this remedy is often based on the child’s demeanor, not only during the infection but also in times of health. This is the pitiful little child who wants……no…demands, Mom’s attention. If that attention can be obtained, then the pain and overall illness are somewhat comforted. But oh, if the child can’t get the love she requires, she suffers greatly! I say “she” because more often than not this remedy is suited to girls.
Another fascinating feature of this remedy is that the child who needs it adores ice cream and eating it often causes problems. Ice cream at a birthday party on Saturday can sometimes result in an otitis media on Sunday. Many a parent is impressed with my questions regarding ice cream and exclaims, “How did you know that?”
You just need to know your ear infection remedies and suddenly all the pieces fit together.
3) Chamomilla 30 …Your child’s mood is a huge factor in choosing this remedy, more so than the particular physical symptoms. The child will be extremely irritable, very demanding, and overly sensitive. Sensitivity to pain is extreme and resented.
Most superheroes are uber observant, and that’s what you need to be in order to use homeopathy successfully. So, watch for symptoms of teething.
Chamomilla is the remedy of choice when there’s an ear infection that accompanies teething. The ear pain comes on slowly, but it’s severe and often, warmth is much appreciated. A warm drink, a warm wrap around the ear, even warm olive oil dripped in the ear are all quite comforting. The nose is sometimes watery, but your choice of this remedy will be confirmed more with the mood of the child than his runny nose.
4) Silica 30 … This is a good remedy for ear infections that occur during the later stages of a cold. The child whimpers mildly and is physically weak with fatigue. This may be a matter of course for this child, or only during the illness. When the child needs Silica, the ear pain is intense, but not as extreme as with a Chamomilla child. The pain usually begins at night and starts behind the ear. Noise is particularly irritating even though there’s a stuffed up sensation. Pus may form in the ear and you might see drainage. You might also notice that the nose drains, too.
I wish I had more space in which to give you all the ear infection natural remedies that can be considered. But, with these four, I hope I have launched you forward to become the conqueror of family illness.
Get yourself armed for any bad guys that lurk in your world. Then step up and protect your family along with the millions of other supermoms.

EAR INFECTION…A natural treatment (HAZELNUT OIL) cold-pressed to “cure” Ear Infection.
1 or 2 drops of a good silver in the ear (Sovereign or Argynten23) – NO MORE than 1 or 2 drops.
Keep ear up toward the sky for 3-5 minutes and then flip over, facing ear downward for 3-5 minutes. Twice per day if needed. Works fast! Also, no sugar or dairy (mommy milk excluded of course but nursing moms should do no sugar or dairy themselves – if baby has ear pain). God Bless!
I’ve been following Joette for about 8 months now and I have learned so much about homeopathy and even the history of the medical profession in the US. It’s amazing to me what mainstream doesn’t want you to know! Thank you, Sarah, for featuring her!
First child we knew nothing about homeopathy. By the time she was 3, I stopped being able to track how many rounds of antibiotics she had been given for repeated ear infections, but I at least knew it wasn’t sustainable. I started looking for alternatives.. By the time the twins were born, we had a homeopath. They had only a few ear infections, but each time, they were treated with a large dose of chamomilla 30c. Worked within 12 hours each and every time. Always showed almost immediate improvement in their crying and temperament, but the infection always showed clearing after 12-24 hours. I believe so strongly in homeopathy: I have used it for years now for many ailments (the twins are 24 this year) and have had so much success.
I suspect that my 6 month old may have an ear infection. He had a fever and mucusy cough and runny nose for several days, but the past two days he has tugged on his left ear off and on and isn’t sleeping as well. These remedies in this article are all tablets- any suggestions for treatment for an infant? Thanks!
Hi there ,
My son has a mild ear infection (little red as per the doctor ) with no sign of pain ,
But has fever ,
Would his ear infection be cured only by taking the belladonna 30 alone ?
And could you tell what would be the posologie for him ?
My six year old son has thick fluid build up in his ears which is effecting his hearing. Do u have any recommendations for that? The ENT prescribed antibiotics (which I don’t really want to give), if that doesn’t work then get tubes out in. Your thoughts? His adenoids have also grown back since they were removed at age 4. So it was suggested to remove them again.
Where do you buy things like Belladonna 30? The article makes it sound like it’s an everyday ingredient that everyone knows about. Never heard of these suggested items let alone know where to purchase them?
Thank you!! 🙂
The links are in the post as to where to find 🙂
I swear by two cloves of smashed garlic simmered on very very low in 1/4 cup coconut oil for half an hour. I keep in a small mason jar, warm it up, and use a glass pipette to put 3-4 drops in a sore ear. I use it mostly for me and my mom, my kids never had earaches until they got their first bad cold recently. It normally helps after one session. I swear it’s magic! 🙂
