How can I heal / stop ear infections in babies and toddlers?

How can you heal/ stop ear infections in babies and toddlers?

My nieces boys both have almost constant ear infections. Her 2yo has had over 20 ear infections and her 9 month old is just as bad. She says the ONLY thing that helps is antibiotics. They’re waiting to see a specialist about putting tubes in the baby’s ears.

Both boys are fully vaccinated if that makes a difference.

Edit to add: Both boys are lactose intolerant. 2yo is on lactose/dairy free milk and baby is on really expensive dairy/lactose free formula. Not sure what it’s called. 2yo has almost outgrown the lactose intolerance. Both boys have no dairy whatsoever.

Edit again: links to reliable info that I could share would be great!!

Edit again (lol): we’re in Canada
Thanks in advance!!

Vaccines definitely make a difference. They cause inflammation. But to answer the question, regular chiropractic adjustments can heal and prevent ear infections.

I don’t know if they do chiro visits. I forgot to ask.

Dairy is a huge culprit. Stop it and you’ll see a difference. And garlic oil or colloidal silver helps.

Cut out dairy, stop vaccinating, see a chiropractor, and use garlic oil drops in the ears (antibiotics make it easier for recurrent infections to occur).

Here’s my homeopath’s protocol. It’s what I use on my kids the few times they’ve had an ear infection.

Have they checked out food allergies? My son had a lot of ear infections until we eliminated all dairy.

They cut all dairy for the kids.

Once I read they have had shots.. That’s the problem.. Something most refuse to believe or even consider, drs will surly tell you other wise, it it’s a vicious cycle.. You vaccine, they have problems, you bring them to dr.. You bring them back to dr.. And yes they sure can attend public school and day care with out them and college too.. Easy simple form.. No questions..
stop vaccines and they will get better in time..

Vaccines are 100% optional here. Some provinces only accept unvaccinated kids if they have an exemption but in Manitoba, vaccines are not required. My kids are all vaxx free (except my 8yo who was vaccinated until 6 months). My oldest 3 are in school and we haven’t had any problems with it.

I don't have a natural remedy to stop the infections, but I can say that my son had a similar issue and was diagnosed with an immune deficiency. The tubes helped, but he also needed to have his adenoids removed. I say this because adenoids, enlarged tonsils, sinus issues, or immunity issues can also be factors. Healing them is great, but with 20 infections, theres likely a bigger cause for the issue. For example, do the children get frequent sinus infections? If so, have they seen an ENT for an evaluation to check their sinus cavities, etc. Have they seen an allergist to rule out allergies or mold issues. That many infections can ultimately lead to permanent hearing damage because the fluid in the ear can harden after several months. My recommendation would be an appt with the ENT, a hearing eval (which can determine if the fluid is preventing vibrations in the earand ultimately hearing loss) and possibly an allergist/immunologist if iGg/iGm/iGa levels are low. This would only be if sickness is also associated with the infections and if antibiotics are the only thing that solves the issue. She doesn't have to medicate based on what the doctor says, but I do think it's important to figure out the root cause. My son is 2.5 years old and has speech issues and possible hearing loss. He had 16 plus infections last year alone. Most of which caused pink eye and other ailments.

Feel free to pm me for more info.

Dairy free and chiropractic adjustments. I know you mentioned that they cut dairy but dairy is in so much and more times than not, I find that people still have occasional pizza, cupcakes, chips etc. All labels must be read and basically eat scratch made meals at home. It could be a congenital short tube that the kids have and could outgrow.
We have been dairy free for over 5 years, it’s not easy but so worth it!

Rachel Landis

Before putting tubes in their ears have them allergies (food) tested! They can be allergic to something as simple as veggies or a fruit that can cause the ear infections. Most of the time it’s something that they are digesting. My kids, family members and myself have food allergies other than dairy. Mine was carrots and tomatoes when I was young.

My son got them constantly when we were vaccinating. We stopped and they went away. But I use basil essential oil on a cotton ball in ear and lavendar and tea tree down the side to help with drainage.

My nephew kept getting reoccurring ear infections n I told my sis to use an onion, like I always have. Onions are antibacterial and antiviral.. Put it in a covered pan with a lil water n steam til soft. Let cool and squeeze the juice from, place two drops in the infected ear. After she tried this once he's never been on an antibiotic since, in years! Antibiotics kill the good bacteria that our bodies need and use to keep us heathy. They wipe out 1/3 of your immune system everytime you use one! My youngest two have never been on any n they're 6 & 8.

Vaccines cause ear infections. Cut pasteurized dairy, replace with raw. It has glutathione. Best to cure with food. Never vaccinate. Will get worse.

How does dairy effect the hearing? My kids are constantly drinking milk and none of them have EVER had an ear infection.

Eliza Stapleton 3 years

Milk and dairy are inflammatory and cause mucus. You ears, nose, and throat are interconnected. It is also not uncommon for people to be mildly allergic to dairy which could cause irritation and mucus.

This is a great speech regarding dairy and it’s effects on our bodies. https://youtu.be/h3c_D0s391Q

It's a dairy allergy. Get them off all milk and dairy formula. You won't need tubes if you do this. The mucus in the milk is clogging up their ears.

Dairy takes two weeks at least to leave the system fyi. And it's usually casein that is the issue, or milk protein issue.

Do they have sinus issues? Allergies? That can also lead to an increase in ear infections. Or if when they bath water gets in their ears. When my son was little he loved the pool but it kept causing infections. So I had read that putting a couple drops of peroxide in his ears after the pool would help. He never had another ear infection. Worked like a charm.

My daughter had recurring ear infections as an infant/child. The Dr would only do antibiotics. She did have allergies but even when the allergies were addressed she still had the ear infections. To the point of hearing loss. After year's of battling with her ETN, I changed Drs. I told him I wanted tubes put in, her tonsils and adenoids taken out. He agreed. He removed almost 1/8 cup of stagnated fluid from behind her ears. He said it was the worst he had ever seen. She did not have another ear infection for 8 years, until the tubes came out.
Treatment from my husband's Cherokee grandmother: Take the child's urine and put it in their ear. I never tried it.
I did use sweet oil, peroxide and garlic oil (instead of onion) from my grandmother. She roasted the garlic and then pressed the oil to put in her ears.
