Homeopathic Remedies for Ear Fluid

Hi there,
My 7-year old had ear tubes placed about a year ago, and then they fell out. She hasn't had any ear infections (except right after the tubes were placed), but she has fluid in one of her ears. The tubes were a huge hassle for us, especially with ear plugs (she's a fish and in water all the time). The fluid is not causing any hearing loss at this point, but the ENT wants to place tubes in again.

Is there any homeopathic remedies out there? I have tried chiropractic and this has not worked according to the ENT. She has no dairy allegies which I know can cause mucous, etc. The ENT told her to chew some gum to see if it would clear out, but scheduled her for tubes in a bout a month if it hadn't cleared. So we have about a month!


What can I do next?

The fastest way to eliminate the fluid is to avoid wheat and dairy for the next month. I know this sounds hard but those are the two most common allergens that an be removed and provide the quickest results.

whenever i get water in my ears, even the smallest amount, i put a mix of half vinegar and half rubbing alcohol in each ear for 10 minutes while laying on my side. I also take sudafed 24 hr when i feel pressure behind my ears or start to get a slight ear ache. I'll take it for about a week just to be sure. the reason i use the vinegar is when i was using ear plugs to shower i would get this creepy crawly feeling in my ears and they would ooze. i quit using the plugs and switched to half vinegar and havent had an ear infection in almost 3 years. the alcohol evaporates whatever water is left behind in the ear. good luck!

I hear what you're saying about 'no dairy allergies' but dairy causes mucus no matter what. I strongly suggest getting her off all dairy. If you're concerned about calcium, you can either get a calcium enriched almond milk or go without the enriched and go for tahini in dips or sesame seeds, nori is rich in all the carotenes, iron, calcium, iodine, phosphorus; and green leafy veggies.
Sugar is another weakening culprit. I know you may say 'but it's in everything, difficult to avoid' that's the point. Stay away from processed foods, they are making the world fat and sick.

Hydrogen peroxide in the ears. Leave it till it stops bubbling, then drain it. Also the suggestion for vinegar and rubbing alcohol (50/50) may work. I would alert the chiropractor to the issue, so he could try some specific adjustments to help. And remember, you don't have to do what the doctor says. I can understand being concerned, but a 7 year old should not need tubes.

Buy Neil Med Saline spritz and spray it in nose every night before bed. Not the one that is a squeeze bottle and irrigation. This is at Pill Box Pharmacy or other drug store. Also have her do 10 front rolls a day. Stand up in between each one and come back to start. Lastly, spin her in a computer chair or other revolving chair 10 times and then the other way 10 times. Rest in between spins. Have her hold a small ball under her chil while spinning to acheive correct head position.
