Ear infections should be taken seriously especially if the infection is in the left ear, as toxins can drain down into the heart...
If not wanting to resort to pharmaceutical antibiotics, a large dose of garlic (raw/lightly cooked or as a supplement) will help fight the infection and cleanse the blood.
Grapefruit seed extract (a.k.a. citricidal) is a powerful natural antibiotic that is worth considering.
Max. 12 drops in a glass of water, drunk through a straw.
(Best natural treatment I've ever used)
All this talk of religion, but it's how you live your life that is the all-important thing.
If you set out each day to do all the goodness and kindness that you can, and to do no harm to man or beast, then you are walking the highest path.
And when your time is up, if you can leave the earth a better place than you found it, then yours will have been a life well lived.
