Organic Garlic Oil is antiviral, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal properties which makes it excellent to combat ear infections.
What is Mullein? Mullein is a flower that has been used since 64 AD that was found to be useful to combat infections, constipation, wound healing, old coughs and inflammation.
How to use the garlic oil ear drops:
The person with the ear infection should be lying on their side with the sore ear facing up.
Put two or three drops of warm garlic oil into the ear. Gently place the piece of cotton over the opening of the ear just enough to stop the oil from seeping out. The person being treated should remain in the same position for 3-5 minutes.
Alternatively, you can soak the piece of cotton in the oil and rest it just inside the ear so the oil seeps into the ear canal.
The remaining oil should be stored in the refrigerator in the glass jar to use as needed.
***These remedies should not be used if you have a ruptured eardrum. A ruptured eardrum causes pain and you might experience fluid draining from your ear.
Tons of research has been done regarding inflammation and it has been concluded that the basis of tons of diseases is inflammation.
Why inflammation happens?
Inflammation is your body's #1 defense mechanism. It is your body's response to injuries and/or infections which provides the necessary nourishment to heal it. Without this natural body response, wounds and infection would never heal. So, inflammation is a good thing, chronic inflammation is NOT. Chronic inflammation causes severe organ, body tissue and joint damage. Inflammation causes pain which is a precursor to swelling. Swelling suppresses the nerve ending and sends pain signals to the brain.
Auto-immune diseases that are associated with inflammation:
Linked Supplements specifically for arthiritis:
Vitamin D3 is crucial vitamin for everyone. No exceptions. This vitamin acts as not only a vitamin but a hormone and enzyme in the body.
Why use it?
What your levels should be?
Between 50-80 nanograms per milliliter. The average American's D3 level is 20. Traditional MDs and labs will say your range needs to be between 20-100 which is a huge range. In order for your body/immune system to do anything listed above your levels need to be at a minimum 50.
New Evidence that supports why your children should also be tested
Pediatricians don't typically do blood work on children but the American Heart Association completed research this summer that concluded low vitamin D levels in children have a 60% higher risk of developing high blood pressure in later childhood/adolescent (6-18 yrs). If the child had consistently low vitamin D3 levels the chance of developing high blood pressure doubled. High Blood Pressure leads to all sorts of cardiovascular illnesses. As parents it's our responsibility to foster our children's health so they can thrive and become healthy, productive adults.
When & what to get tested:
December- January is the best time to get your family's vitamin D3 levels. If it was low begin supplements and have it retested in April-May.
Ask your PCP for a test called 25-hydroxy vitamin D testing OR just tell them you want to test vitamin D3 levels.
Foods to help boost vitamin D3 levels:
Most children don't eat anything on this list so supplementation is a must!

Alkababy has added a new item to the menu! Lavender Magnesium Butter. I know, i know what and why are your primary questions right?
I talk to tons of people who have trouble sleeping, suffer with muscle aches/cramps and frankly just have trouble settling their nerves at night. Tons of people know about melatonin but not magnesium. Melatonin is naturally produced by a healthy body by the pineal gland. It helps regulate sleep cycles. Whereas magnesium is a mineral you get from a healthy diet ((fruits, nuts, whole grains) that activates your parasympathetic nervous system which promotes rest in relaxation. The lavender scent is also very soothing which promotes relaxation. If you are interested in purchasing this new item use the link below to purchase:
Recently CNN published the results of the testing of over 200 varieties of baby food and it has been concluded that alarming amounts of various toxic heave metals such as arsenic, cadmium, mercury and lead. Arsenic has been the main focus because it is extremely toxic in its inorganic form for babies. Babies are very sensitive to toxins. Arsenic is a neurotoxin and has been linked to cancer, skin lesions, permanently altering the brains development, eroding IQ, and negatively impacting behavior.
These heavy metals occur naturally in the soil, polluted groundwater and the air but they are absorbed easily into foods like rice. The concern is lots of parents introduce their babies to rice at a very early age via rice cereal and rice snacks. Also, lots of baby food companies use rice flour as a filler and rice more often than not is cultivated in polluted groundwater.If rice is an absolute necessity, white rice has less arsenic than brown rice because that bran layer is peeled off of white rice.
It’s so important to carefully read the labels of your food because so many companies sneak in unhealthy fillers and preservatives that wreak havoc on our gut health.
