Earaches often stem from
infections that can lead to much worse problems. Activated charcoal is
an effective treatment for ear infection, and a safe alternative to
antibiotics and drainage tubes. Many medicines for earache are actually
ineffective. Years ago, the New England Journal of Medicine (February 10, 1983 issue) reported
that a three-year study of decongestants and antihistamines commonly
prescribed by ear specialists showed that they were no more effective
than doing nothing at all. Putting tubes in a child's ears is hardly a

“My first experience with the healing properties of charcoal happened
when my infant daughter had an ear infection. Initially I took her to
the doctor for the usual treatment. He put her on a penicillin-family
derivative and her ear infection cleared up.
"However, after a few weeks the infection returned. When I mentioned
this to a girlfriend, she suggested to me that putting a watery paste
made from activated charcoal, into my daughter’s ear might very well
clear up the infection without resorting to several doses of
antibiotics. My girlfriend came over to my home and demonstrated how to
make the thin paste. Using an eyedropper, we carefully dribbled it into
my daughter’s sore ear. The ear infection soon cleared up and never
returned. I took my daughter back to the doctor for a final check to be
sure everything was clear inside. He assured me that there was no
longer any infection.” Novel told the doctor about the treatment she
had done and he was supportive. CharcoalRemedies.com page 134
"Hello from India - Ear Infection"
“I just went
through your site. I would like to know if I can put charcoal paste
into my ears as I have been suffering from ear infection since a month
now and have taken a lot of antibiotics too. Please let me know if it
is safe to put activated charcoal paste into the ear. I remember my
doctor telling me that I do have a fungal sinusitis infection that is
maxillary sinusitis. I used to take in charcoal water through my
nostrils and it did help me a lot. But can I use the same for my ears
charcoal can be used for ear infections either inside the ear or as a
poultice on the outside. The one precaution with using the charcoal
inside the ear is to make sure the eardrum is in tact and not ruptured
or punctured - in that case a charcoal poultice would be used.
We do have one story posted on our site. (see above)
would suggest trying mixing the charcoal with some cold pressed olive
oil instead of water. I would also suggest trying a charcoal poultice
over the ear to see which treatment seems to work better.
Follow the directions for Making a Poultice..."
"Dear Mr. John,
to you. This is Virginia, I do not know if you would remember me. I
wrote to you long back, asking if charcoal could be put into the ear
for ear infection.
Well let me tell you that I did put a small
pinch of activated charcoal powder in two tablespoon of boiled cool
water and mixed it very well and then strained it in a strainer so that
no sediments would be there and only just the liquid. I put two drops
in my ear the first day and after two days just a drop of this charcoal
liquid. My ear pain has gone and no more infection. I am so thankful to
God. I took enough of medication earlier and nothing worked out. It is
all part of the sinusitis problem that I had. I also take in diluted
charcoal liquid into my nostrils when I have severe sinusitis and it
does help a lot and clears the nostrils. I do that only once in a
while, just like how we put saline water into our nostrils and it
clears up. So next time my ear gives problem I now know what to do!
Thanks a lot for all your encouragement. May God bless you and your team is my prayer. Regards"
