I recently had a head cold in which my Eustachian tube was completely clogged. This probably happened due to so much sinus congestion. I tried many remedies, but the one that fixed it was breathing steam from hot water with ACV. Put a towel over your head and inhale over the hot water. The trick is to inhale through your nose very slowly so that you don't close off the opening to the Eustachian tube. This really helped me out quite a bit. I hope it can help you too.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple Cider Vinegar cured my ear infection.
I had itchy Eustachian tubes (connection from the ears to the throat) from seasonal allergies. If left untreated I get a very bad cold. I put some drops of ACV into my ears until I felt it pass all the way through to my throat (I could taste it). The itching stopped immediately and I never developed a cold. You can also put some on a Q-tip and it works just as well. Michele-NYC.

Onion contain a natural antihistamine and anti-bacterial properties which can help relieve the pressure in the surrounding tissues and clear the Eustachian tube blockage. The antioxidant quercetin, found in onions, helps to reduce inflammation in sinuses and airways, which can help relieve congestion and pressure around the middle ear area.
Here are two methods I use.
Onion poultice over the ear:
- To help reduce the discomfort caused by the ear infection, evenly dice up an onion into small pieces about ¼ inch and place it in a thin cloth or strong paper towel. Fold the paper towel like a burrito and use the flat edge of your knife to press down on the onion poultice so the juices soak up into the towel. Place this onion cloth over your ear and hold it in place with a hair band or ace bandage. Leave the cloth on for several hours until the pain disappears.
Onion juice in the ear:
- Extract 1 teaspoon of onion from a grated onions on to a strong paper towel then gather the ends of the paper towel carefully and squeeze the juice out of the grated onion into a small bowl. Then using an eyedropper put 2 or 3 drops (for a child) or 10 drops (for a adult) of the onion juice into affected ear followed by placing a cottonball into the ear 2 or 3 times a day.
First I want to say I consult with earth clinic whenever I have a health concern. Doctors are a 'no resort' for me.
I devised my own recipe based on common use. Here it is... 1 teaspoon turmeric, ground black pepper, 2 tablespoons coconut oil, half mug milk, half mug warm water. Stir well until coconut oil has melted and drink once a day until healed.
I hope other readers find my cure helpful. Good luck. Never give up hope.
Earache cure.... I have had annoying ear complaints for years. Tried swimmers ear remedy, no relief, Betadine, giving temporary relief. I refuse to use antibiotics or waste money on an ENT specalist. One day, I thought about how I got rid of a boil using my recipe above, by cleansing from within. I drank my 'boil recipe' to cleanse from within, and treated externally by dropping ACV into my ear, allowing to stay for a few minutes. After 2 days I reached for something and I felt/heard a kind of flutter in my ear. Feeling encouraged, I Continued the turmeric drink, . I felt incredible warmth after consumption and the next day I noticed the most exciting thing. After driving up a steep hill, I heard a crackling sound in my ear, as my eustachian tube equalized. I cannot remember when I last heard this crackle. Burping or sneezing brought pain, even yawning. Now I feel like a kid with a new toy, and love to swallow and hear that crackle again. No more pain either.
