Hey guys, Axe here, of FunctionalMedicine and Nutritionist. Today, I'm going to share with you how to cure an ear infectionfast. I know ear infections, whether it be adults or more commonly in children, are somethingthat. We don't want children living with that pain,dealing with that issue, but we also want to be all natural in that treatment and reallyhelp support their body in healing in the correct way. There are four things you cando to help heal an ear infection fast, and there are four terrific home remedies thatyou want to consider. The first thing you want to do, and you wantto do internally in the ear, is doing garlic
oil. You can buy garlic oil at almost anyhealth food store. Garlic actually has natural antiviral properties, and the majority ofthe time when a child has an ear infection, it is a virus, not usually a bacteria. This is why antibiotics are completely ineffectiveagainst ear infections. In fact, if you go to your primary care physician and they recommendan antibiotic for an ear infection, I would consider if you should use that ornot. Because they really probably don't know whatthey're doing, unfortunately, because most ear infections are viral. Again, garlic oil,a few drops in the ear is an effective treatment.
The second thing you want to be doing is takingsomething called tea tree oil, also known as melaleuca, not putting that in the earbut rubbing it all around the outside of the ear. Tea tree oil has powerful antisepticproperties. It's been used for hundreds of years for the natural treatments of woundsand infections. Again, I would do tea tree oil a few drops.You can mix it with a little coconut oil as well. Rub it all over the ear and all aroundthe ear area. Tea tree oil, also known as melaleuca, is a very, very effective naturaltreatment. The third treatment is actually chiropracticcare. Chiropractic has been shown to be very,
very effective in the treatment of ear infections.What can happen is the spine can misalign in the upper neck, and that can actually affectthe way the body heals and those nerve signals getting from the brain to that area and justaffect the overall healing. We've actually seen. Bring your child toa wellness or a pediatric chiropractor. They can do a very light manual adjustment to thechild. Often sometimes they even just do some light tapping or use an instrument. That canactually heal an ear infection quickly as well. Last but not least, you've got to get to theroot cause of what is causing the ear infection
in the first place. One of the most commonthings is food sensitivities. If your child is allergic to gluten, to certain things likelactose or casein in dairy, to nuts, to citrus, to a load of things, that is actually oneof the biggest causes of ear infection today. What I would consider doing is getting yourchild what's called an I.G.G. food sensitivity test and actually getting them tested forfood allergies, food sensitivities, or food intolerances. That's one of the big thingsto look for. You can get those tests done. They're fairlyinexpensive. Or, if you don't want to do that, then just really watch and listen to theirbody. Notice if they're consuming certain
types of conventional cow's milk or glutenthat can cause the ear infections. But just in general for almost everybody outthere, if your child is getting ear infections, you should get them off gluten and off conventionalcow's milk. If they want to do a little bit of goat's milk yogurt, or something like that,or goat's cheese, most kids do fine with that form of dairy. Again, the conventional cow's milk, the glutenin grain products, those are probably the two biggest culprits when it comes to causingear infections. Again, remember those four things if you wantto help remedy your child's ear infections.
How to Treat Facial Eczema DermTV Epi 479
Eczema is uncomfortable and unsightly. But here's the good news: if moisturizers and cortisone creams aren'tgiving you relief, help may be shockingly simple. Hello, I'm Neal Schultz pause And welcome to DermTV.
The name Eczema just sounds uncomfortableâ€¦And it is. It's not exactly an onomatopoeia, but it'scacaphony tells you it's not something you want. Eczema's most immediate impact is discomfort, whether it's itching or burning or both, and even worse for many people, are the unsightly patches of redness, flakingand even crusting which, when on the face, just don't cover well withmakeup.
Eczema is often persistent, but when it doesgo away, just to make matters a little worse, it tends to be recurrent and come back forno apparent reason. While eczema can be anywhere on the body, it's the visual impact of the patches of facialeczema that's usually the deal breaker. Your first reaction is usually to use a moisturizerbecause of the flakes, because most people think of flaky skin asbeing caused by dryness.
But flaky skin is actually the result of manyother skin problems such as inflammation or infection, which togetheror individually, cause the flaking in eczema. And since moisturizers don't help either ofthose problems, they don't help your eczema. Then it's onto cortisone creams, readily available over the counter, as wellas stronger ones by prescription. If the cause of the flaking, redness and discomfortis inflammation,
then the antiinflammatory powers of the cortisonecream will provide meaningful relief for your eczema. But so often cortisone creams don't work because hidden in the redness and flakingand crusting is an invisible and mischievous infection. That infection is usually caused by familiargerms like staph or strep bacteria. But here's the twist. Through a positive feedbackmechanism, the bacteria make the eczema worse,
so unless you treat the infection with anantibiotic, the eczema won't get better. So to finally control your eczema, in additionto the cortisone cream, a topical antibiotic ointment applied to theeczema at least four times per day is essential andoften works magic. My favorites are Bacitracin and Polysporinointment, both of which are available without prescriptions. Your take away for treating persistent eczemaanywhere on the body
