Homeopathic Remedies 

Here are some of the common, and truly indispensable, remedies to consider for children with ear infections.
Chamomilla. You can hear the child who needs Chamomilla down the hall and through a closed door. They are uncomfortable and irritable, and they want you to know it. There is something in their cry that puts you on edge; it’s the kind of cry that causes adults to think things like, ‘Would somebody please shut that kid up!?’  The child demands to be carried and screams when put down. They demand this or that, but throw the object of their desire away when they finally get it.  A peculiar symptom I have seen many times is that one cheek may be glowing red, while the other is pale.

Pulsatilla. A child needing Pulsatilla is also tearful, but quite different from the Chamomilla patient described above. Here the cry is usually wimpier, creating a reaction in the surrounding adults of, “Oh, the poor thing!” The child clearly wants sympathy and nurturing. Discharges (such as a runny nose) are usually yellow or green, thick, and bland - not irritating. They typically have little thirst or appetite, and they generally feel better in fresh, open air.

Belladonna. In conventional medical school I remember being taught a memory aid for the patient who has been poisoned with Belladonna [in large,non-homeopathic doses].  It went something like: “Red as a beet, dry as a bone, hot as a furnace, blind as a bat, mad as a hatter.”  These represent some of the characteristic symptoms for Belladonna and are helpful in recognizing its homeopathic  presentation as well.  We think of Belladonna for illnesses with sudden, violent onset. The child is typically hot, red, and dry. The pupils are often dilated and the eyes seem very bright.  Curiously, the head is often hot but the limbs are cold. The nervous system is affected in such a way that the child often experiences twitching or jerking - perhaps in their sleep - and is sensitive to light and jarring. They are often excited and restless.

Ferrum phosphoricum.

*** Listed in the homeopathic materia medica for Ferrum phosphoricum is the comment, “violent earache, acute otitis media when Belladonna fails.” That is, the child needing Ferrum phosphoricum may at first be mistaken for one needing Belladonna.  And this is largely how I have come to think of Ferrum phosphoricum -  similar to Belladonna but less intense. The child is often excited, sensitive to light and jarring - but not to the extent of Belladonna.  They are often red, but not as intensely red; hot, but not as burning; eyes red, but not so bright.  And like Belladonna, Ferrum phosphoricum is commonly indicated in children with earaches.

Hepar sulphuris. Think of Hepar sulphuris when the child is chilly, sweats easily, and often has an accompanying hoarse, barking cough. Discharges are typically thick and yellow, and pains are often sticking (like splinters).

Dosage: These remedies are non-toxic and sold over the counter at natural food stores and some drug stores. The commonly found potencies (such as the 6th, 12th, or 30th) will be fine. Given a choice, I usually recommend the 30th potency.

    The meaning of this is that you literally burn fat by eating Coconut Fat (also coconut milk, coconut cream and coconut oil).
