(NaturalNews) A recent meta-analysis of studies published in JAMA looking at the use of antibiotics for ear infections vs. the watch and wait approach (no treatment) found that the treatment group improved slightly, but the improvements were offset by side effects such as rash and diarrhea. This meta-analysis is scientific proof that no treatment at all is better than antibiotic treatment for ear infections. Superior to no treatment at all is homeopathic treatment. Homeopathy is natural, never has side effects, and is completely safe. Scientific studies have proven that homeopathic treatment is superior to both antibiotic treatment and no treatment at all. Ear infections can be easily treated at home using homeopathic remedies, found in most health stores and natural pharmacies.

Scientists who published a study in 1997 in the International Journal of Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics divided 131 children into two groups: the homeopathic treatment group and the standard medical treatment group, which made use of antibiotics. The homeopathic treatment group recovered an average of a day faster than the antibiotic-using group. Another study published in 2001 in the British Homeopathic Journal compared homeopathic treatment to placebo treatment in 230 children with acute ear infections. After 12 hours, 72% of the children recovered 2.4 times faster than those children who received placebo.

Recommended Homeopathic Combination Remedies for Ear Infections

Homeopathic Ear Drops: These drops contain a combination of different homeopathic remedies. Drops are placed into the ear. They are easy to use and are an effective way to relieve the pain of an ear infection.

Homeopathic Earache Tablets: These tablets also contain a combination of different homeopathic remedies. Tablets are taken orally, are also easy to use and relieve ear pain fast.

Combination remedies are great when a single remedy does not work or the correct single homeopathic remedy cannot be determined (see below).

Recommended Single Homeopathic Remedies for Ear Infections

The following remedies should be used in a 30C potency (strength):

Belladonna: Good for earaches that come on suddenly with intense pain. The ear is bright red and there is a high fever.

Hepar Sulphuris: A sharp, severe earache accompanied by a thick colored discharge from the nose or ears. A person needing this remedy is very irritable.

Pulsatilla: This is a good children's remedy for ear infections. The person is mild, weepy, and craves affection. There is yellow or green discharge from the nose or ears.

Dosage and repetition: Single and combination remedies can be given as needed: every 15-30 minutes during an acute crisis and then three times daily as symptoms subside.
