This wonderful concoction is my 2nd choice for ear pain with the first choice being breastmilk, if available. Third choice is collidal silver. According this PubMed article, prescription antibiotics have no early effect on pain, a slight effect on pain in the days following and only a modest effect on the number of children with tympanic perforations, contralateral otitis episodes and abnormal tympanometry findings at two to four weeks and at six to eight weeks compared with placebo in children with acute otitis media. According to this 2019 study (also in PubMed), both allicin and s-allyl cysteine showed antimicrobial activity against the tested microorganisms, even at low concentrations. The tested microorganisms were: Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Acinetobacter baumannii, Staphylococcus aureus, Enterococcus faecium, Candida albicans, and Candida tropicalis. This 2016 PubMed study concludes that while bacterial otopathogens colonize the nasopharynx from early age, symptomatic viral URI is needed to initiate the development of acute otitis media. Did you catch that? Acute, symptomatic otitis media is viral. Are antibiotics effective on viral infections? According to Aviva Romm, D, many cases of otitis media don’t need antibiotics as “approximately 80% of kids with acute otitis media (ear infection) get better without antibiotics in 2-7 days.”

Speaking of otitis media, have you read my BLOG on diagnostic equipment that every mom should have?

Making it is super simple. If you don’t have some of the items, I’ve added Amazon affiliate links where you can buy them but you should be able to find most of these items locally if you don’t already have them. This recipe is being supplied absolutely free and you don’t have to use any of my links, however, if you appreciate my BLOGS, feel free to use one or more of the links or drop a donation to my Southside Bank loan account 246965 (routing 111923607) as I’m still paying off an original debt of over $100k incurred from 5 years of giving away free chiropractic care to service disabled veterans and kids with injuries eligible for VAERS. High overhead does not go well with a soft heart.




If there is any fluid discarge from the ear, there is a chance that the ear drum has burst - do not put ANYTHING into an oozing ear. Consult your doctor.
