Ear Ache Home Remedy

My children are not chronic sufferers of ear infections, but they are not immune to getting them on average once or twice a year.  As a child, my ears were infected on a constant basis-to the point tubes had to placed in both ears.  My husband also dealt with numerous ear infections as little boy.  One might think our children would suffer the same fate, but fortunately they have avoided chronic infection despite years of swimming every day during the summer and part-time exposure to daycare/school germs since infancy.

I attribute this huge difference in ear health to the diet my children consume in comparison to what my husband and I ate as children.  They eat primarily fruits, meat, vegetables, eggs, nuts, nut butters, almond flour, coconut flour, quinoa etc.  I also allow grass-fed organic dairy, but substitute many recipes with coconut milk or almond milk.  Id never misrepresent my blog by inaccurate claims that I insist they strictly adhere to this diet on every occasion.  The Bs (Brenden, Brielle and Bridget) enjoy themselves at parties and neighborhood gatherings, I order them pizza once a week from a great little local joint (although I do order them gluten-free crust. mmmwwwhhhaaa), and their father no doubt sneaks them treats when Im not around to referee!

All this being said, , , , the Bs do occasionally complain of ear discomfort combined with low-grade fevers.  I have not given ANY of them antibiotics for these ear infections in over two years.  What is my secret for curing this common childhood ailment?

Yes,,,, that is an onion and an upcycled glass container.  .  .

My husband, Shane, is active duty military (for those of you new to my blog).  As a result, he works crazy hours when home, travels constantly and has deployed countless times over the years.  One evening while Shane was gone my son, Brenden, complained of an ear ache.  His twin baby sisters had already finished with their last nursing session and were sleeping peacefully.  I put Brenden to bed with the hope that he would sleep through the night, and I could take him to the clinic in the morning.

Poor thing, no more than three, joined me in bed around one in the morning with a fever and a bright red ear tender to the touch.  I knew there was no immediate danger to his health , but my child was hurting.  Taking three tiny children to the emergency room for a non-emergency was no option, so I turned to the internet to research home remedies for ear aches.  I simply hoped to discover a way to ease poor little Brendens pain.

What I discovered changed my whole outlook on natural remedies.  Let me be clear, I would NEVER suggest a doctors opinion is invalid, I believe in the value of certain medications and I trust our medical care in many circumstances, but I believe there is room for holistic practices as well!

Scouring through various sites I found a blurb in response to a question based on the same symptoms my son was experiencing.  A woman had posted an old home remedy from her grandmother using half an onion and a glass jar.  Two items I had on hand.  The thread following this response was filled with positive feedback from others claiming success with similar methods.

I can proudly add to those success stories! Following the super easy method listed below, Brenden finally fell back to sleep and woke up fever free with no ear pain.  Since then, I have tried the ONION METHOD with all three children prior to taking them into the Pediatrician.  The only time any of them have been on antibiotics since discovering the ONION METHOD was when little Brielle caught a nasty case of walking pneumonia.


  • Slice an onion in half (I have used white, yellow and purple.)
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour (I have tried the microwave as well.  Both seem to work, but I prefer to avoid the microwave in most circumstances.)
  • Slice onion and quickly place in a glass jar with an opening wide enough to cover an ear.
  • Place glass jar over infected ear, allowing the soothing steam, and antibacterial properties of the onion to do their amazing work for 15-20 minutes.
  • If your child allows, massage the back of the ear in a downward motion, stimulating the draining of the ear.
  • Encourage sleep.  Like any other method it will take a few hours for the effects to be felt.

This method has truly worked on all three of my children, and their hearing is perfect (all three just got tested at the Pediatrician prior to beginning school).  I am not a doctor and would never suggest my opinions should be considered over a qualified physician, but if youre looking for an alternative or to simply ease your childs suffering until youre able to take him/her to a clinic please consider the ONION METHOD.

Healthy Eating: Get Your Little Ones Involved

Homemade, real food became the basis of my diet when I made the decision to become fueled by nature.  Ensuring my family eats healthy, made-from-scratch meals proves challenging with my overwhelming schedule.  Every week I choose one morning to batch cook protein bars, kid-friendly yet nutritious muffins, cauliflower bites, broccoli bites, chicken and quinoa muffins, etc.  I always include my children in this process!

Why have your children serve as mini sous chefs while you cook?

1.  The entire process fosters quality family time filled with messes and laughs.
2.  Cooking naturally encourages lessons in mathematics from number recognition to measuring.
3.  Children are exposed to various foods that lead to discussions about food groups, nutrition, portion control and the importance of healthy choices.
4.  It encourages children to make good food choices later in life.
5.  Picky eaters are more inclined to munch on something they have created.


Here is the Banana Almond Butter Muffin recipe we used this morning:

1 cup almond flour
2 very ripe bananas (seriously mashed)
1 cup almond butter
2 eggs (pasture-raised preferred)
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
*1 tsp guar gum (optional:  I find guar gum helps non-traditional flours such as almond or coconut rise nicely)
*1 tsp Sunspire candy coated chocolate pieces (obviously chocolate chips would work)

Mix all of your ingredients.  Bake 20-25 minutes in a 350 degree oven.  This recipe made 10 good-sized muffins.



Adding just a few little chocolate pieces make these muffins fun!  Why choose Sunspire?  They have NO Artificial flavors, NO artificial colors, NO preservatives, and although they do contain soy (which I limit) the soy lecithin is a non-GMO emulsifier.

Mr. B stealing a few!


This is the finished product!  Like me, my children eat five to six small meals a day (rather than three large meals).  They each insisted on eating a muffin for second breakfast!  I should have made a double batch!

Kicking Excuses In The A@$- Workout With My Gym Boss

My schedule the past two months has been INSANE.  Before moving from Virginia to North Carolina last month, I hit my gym HARD (miss you friends at Health and Fitness) knowing time dedicated to creative workouts would be limited during the transition.  Then I allowed myself one week to simply rest my muscles and allow them to repair.  That week could have turned into two, because my schedule was crazy:  setting up a new house, registering children at school, researching summer activities for children and enrolling them, researching and prepping for two huge parties and one smaller event, guests galore in town,,,,, the list could go on and on and on!!!!

I could literally only spare a few minutes for myself.  In an effort to stay true to my goals (and to who I have become as a person) I turned to very short high intensity workouts.  TABATAs!  Have you heard of them?

Izumi Tabata, a scientist from Japan, compared moderate high intensity training with high intensity interval training on two groups of athletes. His research revealed the high intensity interval training athletes improved their aerobic systems as well as their anaerobic systems while the moderate high intensity training athletes only improved their aerobic system and had little to no increase in their anaerobic system.

Current tabata protocol consists of:

  • 5 minute warm-up


  • 8 intervals of 20 seconds all-out intensity exercise followed by 10 seconds of rest
  • 2 minute cool down



My hectic week lead me to the outdoors.  I needed open space.  So,,,, I packed up the three Bs (Brenden, Brielle and Bridget) and took them to the local track to kick my excuses in the a@$.  Now Im hooked.  At least once or twice a week Ive _got_ to feel the sun on my skin as I push myself to new levels of health and fitness with short bursts of energy.

The Bs at the track!  Are they perfect?  No!  Do they interupt me?  Yep!  But I still can get a crazy good workout!

Not one to follow protocol, I take traditional tabata workouts and give them my own flair!

Tabata inspired workout I completed this week: 

8 rounds of each pair:  20 seconds on followed by 10 seconds rest

High Knees (20 seconds)
Rest (10 seconds)
Burpees  with 10 mountain climbers (20 seconds)
Rest (10 seconds)
{Burpee with mountain climber explanation:  Do a burpee; when in plank position rep out 10 mountain climbers}

Jumping lunges (20 seconds)
Rest (10 seconds)
Pushups (20 seconds)
Rest (10 seconds)

Plank knee tucks (20 seconds)
Rest (10 seconds)
Low jacks (20 seconds)
Rest (10 seconds)
{Plank knee tuck explanation: in plank jump feet towards hands; jump in and out as many times as possible}

I can tell you 10 seconds never felt so short and 20 seconds so long!  I followed up this workout with five minutes of stair sprints on the bleachers surrounding the track.  Then I grabbed up my kids (who were playing in the field in the center of the track) and walked a few laps around the track as a family!

This workout wouldnt have been as efficient without my GYMBOSS.

They are so easy to use.  Set up the interval times of your choice (20 seconds/10 seconds or. 30 seconds/30 seconds- whatever you desire).  Select the number of rounds you wish to complete.  Press start.  Your GYMBOSS will beep and vibrate (in case youre rockin some loud music on your Ipod) between each interval.  No need to stare at a watch or clock and disrupt your focus!  As you can see mine has seen some abuse!

Staying Fit And Healthy At The Beach

Im absolutely thrilled to be the Mystery Host this week! Thank you for this lovely opportunity Julie!  Ive been following the Naptime Review (and watching this wonderful page grow) since the early days!

Did you notice Cave Princess got a facelift!?!  Thank you so much  I love how streamlined and organized Cave Princess is now!  Visit Melanie of Mommy Doodles Design if youre looking to upgrade your page in a timely, professional and pleasant manner.  She was extremely flexible and easy to work with on this project.  Melanie will also create an adorable button for you to share.  Please pick up my new button (Im really proud of my cute little Cave Princess)!

While the new and improved Cave Princess was going live, my family took a three-day trip to the beach.  We made the spontaneous decision to head down to the Wilmington, NC area Thursday night, which left me with little time to prepare healthy meals for our long weekend.  How did I stay fit while at the beach with all of its sweet, salty and fatty temptations?


"The Morgan Family"

Beach Mode

  • As a rule, when we travel I try to ensure our rooms have a refrigerator.  Depending on the length of the drive I will either pack a cooler of healthy food options or I will scout out the local grocery stores and make a plan to visit them before getting too settled.  Our drive to the Wilmington area took only two hours, so I packed a small cooler of perishable items.

  •  I batch cook homemade protein bars, healthy muffins, etc. weekly, so I packed numerous containers of ready-made healthy breakfasts and snacks for our road trip/beach weekend.  I highly recommend batch cooking.  See my post Time Saving Suggestions for more ideas!

  • Whenever feasible, I prefer a room/suite with a kitchen.  No matter how clean you try to eat while dining out, you never know exactly what youre consuming, so your best bet is homemade cooking.  But,,,, lets get real,,,, I am not currently training for a specific goal, so I enjoyed dinners out each night, opting for healthier options:- Grilled chicken and spinach salads with no dressing
    – Broiled shrimp without the butter
    Substituting french fries for sauerkraut or steamed vegetables


  • Always remember this sign when you want something quickly.  Fruit is fast food.  Did my children enjoy ice cream cones?  Of course!  But, I always had raisins, grapes, bananas, apples etc. on hand.

Fruit is fast food.

  •  If I take an extended vacation I will actually budget (time and money) in a few trips to the gym, or I will design quick intense body weight exercies.  I felt my body needed a break from all of the intense training I have been doing the past month.  My right shoulder has been giving out on me during pushups, so I opted to allow my body some time to relax and heal.  (As a result, Im ready to hit it hard this week!!!)  You may not call chasing after these three relaxing, however!!!


  • Never forget the importance of long walks.  We took plenty of them.  According to research, combining days of intense interval training (metablic training-taking your heart to an anaerobic state followed by short rest intervals) with days of low intensity training (long, slow walks or relaxing yoga sessions) is the most effective means to fat loss through the manipulation of cortisol hormone levels in the body.
