Cold Otitis Media

Treat Cold, Flu and Ear Infection the natural way

With or without medication, the cold or flu can give you real trouble. You can choose from a variety of medications that can give you some relief in symptoms. Or you can also take the natural approach. This may prevent illnesses, speed your recovery and help you to feel better along the way.

When is coming to children, a cold/flu or other respiratory infection can also ends in an ear infection. This is called an acute otitis media. It appears in the space behind the eardrum, that is called the middle ear.

This is very common in children under 8 years, as their immature ear can be easily infected. Their Eustachian tube is shorter, softer and more horizontal. This leads to be more easily blocked by secretions than those of older children or adults. The Eustachian tube is the tube that connects the throat and the middle ear. Also, infants are very exposed to ear infections due to their sucking habit. Always keep an infant, while breast or bottle feeding, under an angle. This may prevent entering the liquid into their immature ear.

During cold, throat infection, allergy or other respiratory infections, the Eustachian tube usually swells. This prevents the air entering the middle ear, allowing the secretions to get inside. Once the secretions enter to the middle ear they are trapped there. This leads to viruses and bacteria to grow and cause infection.

About Home Salt Therapy

SaltAir UV Home Salt Therapy

In the range of 0.1-2.5 microns, the salt micro-particles penetrate into every corner of the lung’s bronchi, bronchioles and alveoli. They deposit on the respiratory mucosa, and clean secretions and kill bacteria/viruses. Salt has anti bacterial, anti viral and anti fungal properties. It will help to reduce inflammation and unclog the blockages. This is due to its hydrophilic and mucolytic effect. Lets check the effects on few segments of the respiratory system.

In the bronchial tree:

There will be a reduction of the mucosa’s inflammation of the bronchial tree. This inflammation causes asthma and asthma related symptoms. Reducing the inflammation here will widen the airways and promotes better breathing. It humidifies and fluidizes the bronchial secretions in the bronchial tree, as well. This leads to the relief of the broncho- spasm, assisting and improving the treatment of asthma.

In the nose and para-nasal sinuses:

There will be a reduction of the inflammation causing nasal obstruction. It will clear the secretions as well. These will lead to widening of the airway passages in the nose and sinuses and improve the drainage of sinuses.

In the auditory tube:

The inflammation of the Eustachian tube, causing obstruction and otitis media, will be diminished. The airway passages will open and there will be better drainage of secretions & better aeration behind the tympanic membrane (drum).

The hygiene of the respiratory tract has a very important place in treating and preventing respiratory infections or ear infections. Here are some tips:

1. Use a home salt therapy device to improve respiratory’s immunity.

2. Correctly blow your nose often – don’t blow your nose hardly as the pressure can carry secretions back into your ear passages. Press a finger over one nostril while you blow gently the other.

3. Clean your nose with saline solution using a neti pot or sinus rinse system.

4. Place an extra pillow under your head creating an angle. The best way is to place it under the mattress to create a smooth slope. This will help with nasal congestion and also prevent ear infection.
