EAR PROBLEMS (Swimmer’s Ear, Glue Ear, Tinnitus) & EAR CANDLING
Hear… Hear…. Hear ….
The excessive build up of ear wax, impacted plugs and candidia fungus can cause hearing problems, infections and discomfort in the ears. Hearing impairment often creates distress and frustration, which in some children can even have and effect on their learning and speech. It may contribute to vertigo or tinnitus in adults, or may be associated with sinusitis and rhinitis or allergy conditions.
Earache may be caused by infection of the middle ear, or the outer external canal. It may be acute, with severe pain and fever, or it may be a chronic lingering infection, such as candidia or other fungal problem often caused by swimming.
In children it is important to seek medical attention, as a burst ear drum may cause a hearing loss. It is also important not to clean the ear canal with anything pointed, even cotton buds, as the eardrum may be permanently damaged.
An effective home remedy for ear problems, especially infection, can be to use Hypericum (St John’s Wort) oil, a few drops into the ear canal at night. The juice of an onion also has the same anti microbial effect. For ear canals that are filled with hard wax, warmed olive or almond oil can be put into the ear canal at night for 5-7 nights before having an Ear Candling treatment.
What is Ear Candling
