Ear Infections

Ear infections seem like another common childhood ailment.  Whenever our oldest Kalyssa would catch a cold it would always turn into an ear infection because of all the fluid build up.  Here is an easy remedy for ear infections.  Of course, if you are worried something more serious is going on you should take them to your Dr.  But this works great for my kids when they are complaining of ear pain and have had colds. 

Hydrogen Peroxide!  A few drops in the affected ear.  Then have them lay there and be still for about 10 minutes.  They will probably hear little bubbling noises while the peroxide does it's thing.  A warm compress also feels really good on the aching ear. 

This is also good to try when you feel yourself catching a cold, put some peroxide in your ears for 10 minutes on each side.  I know that sounds a little weird but it really does work.

We also as a family make regular visits to our chiropractor.  Chiropractic is a great way to clear up recurring ear infections.  If you have a child who is prone to multiple ear infections, find a good chiropractor and ask them about the benefits of chiropractic care for recurring ear infections before you have tubes put in or any other kind of major surgery.  It's amazing what chiropractic can do!!

But for those little ear aches, minor ear infections the peroxide in the ear does the trick everytime.  I usually do this 2-3 times a day until they are better.

Happy Tuesday everyone.  Tune in tomorrow, I'll share my recipe for White Bean Hummus.  MMM it's so good
