Vogel Plantago ...Most people will suffer from an earache or infection at some stage in their life, young children can be particularly susceptible. The Eustachian tube in the ear has control over pressure and fluids in the middle ear. If a blockage occurs in this tube, it will cause a build-up of fluid, and can then cause bacteria to grow and cause an infection. Glue ear is the result of constant ear infection and leads to temporary deafness due to the fluid accumulated in the middle ear. The way that Plantago works is by strengthening the bodily tissues in the ears, nose and throat tract, and clearing blockages, thus helping to resolve existing, and protect against future ear infections.Plantago can also help with catarrhal congestion. Diet often plays a role in catarrh build-up, with white flour based foods, sugary sweet treats and dairy products being common causes. This tincture will help to loosen accrued catarrh related congestion.Plantago will help to provide a relaxing expectorant effect, and generally soothe and heal the membrane linings of the ears, nose and throat.Directions for use: Adults; 15 drops in a little water, 2 to 3 times each day.
