E Ear Infections – Eye Infections


Medical Definition
Middle ear infection, or Otitis media, is one of the commonest of childhood complaints and tends to occur whenever there is a blockage of the Eustachian tube at the lower end on account of catarrh or enlarged adenoids. If a cold or other respiratory infection occurs then it will often progress upward into the middle ear and cause pain of a stabbing or throbbing nature. The secretions will become infected with Staphylococci or Streptococci bacteria.

Ear infections are particularly difficult to live with, especially for children, who tend to suffer more than adults. It can be impossible for your child to communicate the pain and discomfort they are suffering. As a caring parent you naturally want to get a quick resolution. A trip to the doctor will result in a prescription for an antibiotic drug which may work – but a cursory look at the medical databases shows that when children are aggressively treated with antibiotics they become 300 percent more likely to develop recurrent infections when compared to those who have no treatment at all. Overuse of antibiotics often causes another problem; since children are still developing an effective immune system, they can easily end up with a fungal infection.

TreatmentAny condition that has a microbial cause can be treated with allicin. Children younger than 7 years can be given 90mg of allicin powder a day. Children over 7 years, the normal adult dose of 180mg of allicin powder a day. Place the powder in their food.


Medical Definition
This is a common itchy skin disease characterised by reddening and vesicle formation, which may lead to weeping and crusting. Atopic eczema affects up to 20 per cent of the population and is associated with hay fever and asthma. It can affect young children in particular where the disease may last for several years and may lead on into adulthood.

Most people who suffer from eczema will have their own treatment routine to keep the disease at bay. It could involve a number of pharmaceutical agents including steroids plus emollients, or any of a number of herbal remedies. However most sufferers will also report that these treatments work for a while and then cease to be effective. One of the major reasons for this is that NONE of them (including pharmaceutical drugs) kill the bacterium found in 95 per cent of simple eczema cases – Staphylococcus aureus. This bug is frequently found all over the skin surface of eczema sufferers. This bacterium is clever and will selectively seek out a route into the human body (see MRSA section later) so an eczema patient is the ideal vehicle for Staphylococcus aureus to replicate on and infect. The bacterium’s presence on the skin will cause a secondary infection, which leads to a worsening of clinical symptoms and also hinders the absorption of hydrocortisone. So it stands to reason that you must use an agent that can kill Staphyloccocus aureus and allow the underlying disease to heal. Allicin can do this easily. So far over 80 strains of this infectious, multi-drug resistant bacterium have been tested against allicin liquid, powder and cream formulations and have all been blown away!

TreatmentBegin by starting a high dose course of allicin powder. Take up to 1080mg a day. At the same time take cream and apply sparingly to your eczema plaques. Follow this twice a day for a month or until you begin to see improvement. Continue to take the allicin powder on a daily basis albeit at a reduced dose of 180-360mg of allicin powder per day.

One of the most common and very contagious eye infections is conjunctivitis. Also known as pink eye, it is usually accompanied by a thick, yellow discharge, often crusting the eyes shut in the morning. Pink eye can be viral or bacterial in nature. The same type of virus that causes an upper-respiratory condition usually causes it.

Other conditions of the eye include Meibomian or tarsal cysts, caused by blockage of the duct, a stye or hordeolum, an infection of the root of the lash and Blepharitis, a chronic inflammation of the margin of the lids, and can lead to recurrent infections.

TreatmentTake 360mg of allicin powder daily. Allicin powder can be applied to a piece of lint and dabbed gently onto the infected area, being careful not to get any in the eye.

In July I had a very bad eye infection. I went to the doctors and was prescribed an eye ointment called “Brolene”. I had to apply this morning and evening, and was told by the doctor if there was no improvement, to go back to the surgery. The day after applying Brolene my eyes had a sticky residue. Using salty water I had a battle to separate my eye lashes. After a couple of days my eyes were still red and sore. The doctor then prescribed an antibiotic eye cream. I had to apply two drops morning and evening. If no better, I was to go back to my doctor. Two creams later and there was still no improvement. By this time I was really fed up. I then tried the allicin powder taking 360mg per day for two days. On the first day the itchiness had stopped and the redness became less. Then on the second day my eyes were completely clear. I was so impressed that I have told friends and work colleagues about your product. As I myself, after taking them for two days the difference was unbelievable. As soon as friends mention they’ve got a pain or a sniffle they are all quite keen to try anything, and I think they too have been very surprised by the results.
Thank you again. Yours sincerely,
