Poultice for Pleurisy
by: HFHR

Flaxseed mixed with raw onion makes a great pleurisy poultice. Wrap in cheesecloth on use on both your chest then your back to treat the backside of the lungs. A charcoal poultice would be another alternative. Either would be great for an earache poultice also!

ear drops/ mullein infused oil
by: Anonymous

I'm also prone to ear infections, just in the last couple years. Ive found that mullein infused olive oil is the best solution for earacbes. Harvest mullein flowers (you will need to do this daily for a while as the plant only produces a flower or two a day). Place the flowers in a small lidded jar and add just enough top grade olive oil to barely cover the flowers. Place in a sunny window. Leave in the sunny window for ten days to two weeks past your last addition of flower/oil. Strain the flowers from the oil. Makes the absolute best ear drops ever!!

Pleurisy Root

Pleurisy Root has been used for centuries to treat many types of lung problems including, of course, pleurisy. The plant itself is commonly known as butterfly weed (Asclepias tuberosa). It can be used as a tea, tincture or infusion. This herb does have some safety precautions so do a little more research before you try it. You can find the root or the tincture at Mountain Rose Herbs online or a good health food store should carry it.

Garlic Oil or 3% peroxide
by: Anonymous

I was prone to earaches as a kid. Garlic oil is a well known antibiotic but I like using a few drops of peroxide if I ever feel a beginning of earaches, or a sore throat (all connected). There is a great product nicknamed MMS, is chlorine dioxide, a simple water purifier for the last 60 or more years. It has been a Godsend to me for fibromyalgia, and has pretty much killed all the pathogen off over 2-3 months.
Jim Humble,a NASA engineer, has a big website on MMS.

Ear ache cure
by: Anonymous

Just before going to bed, put 8 to 10 drops pure coconut or olive oil in a clean teaspoon. Add 3 or 4 drops of tea tree oil. Pour into infected ear and top with a cotton ball. Go to bed. Guaranteed that your ear infection will be gone before morning.

Apple cider vinegar works a miracle for ear infections/aches. Just use a few drops in the affected ear. Let drain out a minute later. Lay there and be patient. After a half hour repeat and by then it should be gone.

Kaolin Poultice
by: Anonymous

Whenever we had earache as kids, mum used to make a kaolin poultice, the kaolin was spread between two gauze dressings and heated on a saucer sitting on top of a pan of boiling water. The hot gauze was put over the infected ear, and tied in place with a scarf ( we did look right Charlie's and it was hot), we then had to make sure we kept the infected ear / gauze facing downwards, resting on a pillow or cushion....always did the job.....
