Ear Infection Cure (Almost Instant)

by Christine

July 2008

This is a very old remedy I learned from my German neighbors. Hold a fresh cut piece of onion (or garlic) on the ear (not IN) with the cut end facing the eardrum. The fumes are very antibiotic and antiviral and will get right up into the infected ear. I have used this at least 6 or 8 times with a crying feverish child in the middle of the night, and it never has failed to cure the ear infection within a few hours. For severe pain, I have also treated the pain to get my child to relax enough to drift back off to sleep while the onion does its magic. So far, my children have slept through the remainder of the night, and have woke up pain-free with this remedy - it has saved me countless office calls, money and antibiotic Rx use on my children.

Hello!!!!

First of all I just wanted to thank you for sending my order so fast!!! I did purchase the Herbs Made Simple DVD from the No Greater Joy website which is how I found out about this website. I can’t wait for my Dr. Cinnamon Tea & Rise & Shine Tea that I ordered!!

I’ve started watching the video and I was SO surprised about the garlic poultice!!! I actually said out loud in my house, “You mean to tell me that I have a natural decongestant in my house that has more uses than spaghetti sauce & cooking?! And all I need is garlic cloves, cheese cloth, & hot water?!” Yep, made me want to stomp my foot when I realized how much money I have wasted purchasing cold medications.

I really appreciate this because my son is 3 and a lot of the over the counter medications are not made for someone his age & weight. I would rather give him something that will not harm him, but will help him at the same time.

THANK YOU Shoshanna!!!! You, your mother and your family have truly been blessed with some precious gifts and I thank you for sharing them with us!!


Did You Know?

Cayenne powder has been used by researchers in Antarctica to help them bear the extremely cold temperatures. The cayenne powder is sprinkled into their boots before putting them on. As the powder slowly comes in contact with the skin through the socks, it will draw blood to the feet, thus bringing much needed warms to the extremities. The one draw back is the red powder stains light colored socks. From our readings, it seems the stained socks were a small price to pay for the great benefit of being able to feel your toes after a little while out in the blistering cold! After trying this on a number of occasions during the winter near Lake Superior, I'm also convinced the stained socks are worth it.
