Ear Infections and Earaches

Homeopathy In Ear Infections by Fran Sheffield

Have you, or one of your children, ever had an ear infection? If so, you’ll know the urgency of treating the pain and inflammation as quickly as possible. Fortunately, homeopathy helps with that - even during the dead of night. All you need is a little knowledge of the basic remedies traditionally used by homeopaths for the problem.

Common earache remedies

Aconite napellus (Acon.)

Useful in the early stages of an ear infection, especially following an exposure to cold, dry air. Rapid onset of symtoms. Intense symptoms. Person is restless, thirsty, anxious and sometimes frantic. Ear sensitive to touch. Worse at night, especially between 12-2am.

Remember: Rapid onset; intense symptoms; restlessness; anxiety; thirst; worse after midnight.

Belladonna (Bell.)

Often the right ear. Sudden onset of intense pain that may shoot or throb. Bright red ear or ear canal. Glassy eyes or dilated pupils. High fever. Often with headache. May become delirious in sleep, with nightmares. Hot head with cold hands and feet. Prefers the dark. Better for sitting rather than lying. Pain worse with light, noise, cold air, or being bumped.

Remember: Rapid onset; intense symptoms; redness; often right-sided.

What's the alternative to antibiotics?

According Dr Edmund Smith, Consultant Microbiologist talking on RTE's Radio One show ‘Today with Sean O’Rourke’ (13th Jan 2014) antibiotics don't work on viral colds and flu and now other infections have become resistant to most current antibiotics. Dr Smith tells us over the last 25 years there was only one new antibiotic put on the market.

So what to do when you come down with the flu? This is where Homeopathy comes into its own, helping people overcome this type of infection. Having your own Homeopath will enable you to recover quickly – find your local Registered Homeopath today by clicking on Find a Homeopath.

If you do get flu symptoms these are the top 5 remedies that may help you get back on your feet rapidly and without side-effects.


Gelsemium is commonly needed for that fluey feeling that gradually comes on where you feel exhausted, dull, heavy and apathetic and eyelids are droopy and hard to keep open. This year’s flu that responds to this remedy has aching joints and back and a general unwell, tired feeling. You may have a temperature and just want to sleep and be left alone. Aching muscles, headache and sore throat, with chills up and down the spine. Usually not very thirsty or sweaty.

Homeopathy and Healthcare
The Irish Times - Tuesday, February 26th, 2013

Sir, – “Journalists must always be aware of their role to serve the public’s right to know,” the former editor of The Irish Times Geraldine Kennedy, was reported as saying (June 24th, 2011).

The public does indeed have a right to know and to an informed choice about healthcare. Donald Clarke (February 23rd) by discrediting any complementary or alternative options to conventional medicine, does not serve the public interest well.

Surely we’re entitled to know that regarding homeopathy 43 per cent of Randomised Control Trials (RCT) have a balance of positive evidence, 6 per cent have a balance of negative evidence, 49 per cent have not been conclusively positive or negative and 2 per cent do not contain data that are suitable for analysis.

Homeopathy in Switzerland

Swiss Government Report  -'Homeopathy is a valuable addition to health care'


A full Health Technology Assessment (HTA) report – commissioned by the Swiss health authorities - on the effectiveness, appropriateness, safety and costs of homeopathy in health care has been published. The report was commissioned to inform decision-making on the further inclusion of homeopathy in the list of services covered by the statutory health insurance. The report offers an evaluation of the practice of homeopathy in health care and confirms it as a valuable addition to the conventional medical landscape - a status it has held for a long time in practical healthcare in Europe and around the world.

Homeopathy - British Medical Journal
Recently the British Medical Journal published a positive article about Homeopathy. Click on the link below to read the full article. If you also click on ‘read responses’ at the top of the article there is some interesting debate and data about the Cuban Leptospirosis trial which had a very favourable outcome for Homeopathic prophylaxis on a large scale.
