Your ear canal produces a waxy oil called cerumen, which is more commonly known as earwax. This wax protects the ear from dust, foreign particles, and microorganisms. It also protects ear canal skin from irritation due to water. In normal circumstances, excess wax finds its way out of the canal and into the ear opening naturally and then is washed away.
When your glands make more earwax than is necessary, it may get hard and block the ear. When you clean your ears, you can accidentally push the wax deeper, causing a blockage. Wax buildup is a common reason for temporary hearing loss.
THESE TWO INGREDIENTS CAN ELIMINATE EARWAX AND EAR INFECTIONS
For our ear health recipe, mix equal parts of white vinegar and rubbing alcohol together. Start with a small amount, about a teaspoon of each. Mix them in a small bowl or measuring cup. You can make a larger amount and store it for next time, but try it first to see how it works for you.
When the two ingredients are mixed, use a clean eye dropper to put about half of the mixture into one ear while you tilt your head to the side. Keep your head tilted and allow the mixture to sit in your ear for one minute. After a minute, tilt your head over the sink to allow the solution to drip out.
Repeat the process with the other half of the healthy ear mixture in your other ear and again allow it to sit in your ear for one minute. Then tilt your head and drain it out.
Audiologist Dr. Robert L. Martin says that alcohol can dry out the ear, which can cause the skin to crack and bleed. This treatment should be used for those who need to dry out an ear that has been exposed to moisture, not those that are in a dry environment.
Dr. Martin suggests this treatment twice a day for four days when you know that your ears have been exposed to moisture, for example after swimming. The ear health remedy can be used twice a week for several months if you have chronically moist ears or are exposed to a high humidity environment.
This prevention tool is highly recommended for those who frequently suffer from swimmer’s ear problems or sinus infections that can spread to the ear. The remedy should be used before problems occur, not on an already infected ear.
Symptoms of an ear infection may include:
Ear pain (mild to severe). Babies often pull or tug at their ears when they have an earache.
Drainage from the ear that is thick and yellow or bloody. This means the eardrum has probably burst (ruptured). …
Loss of appetite, vomiting, and grumpy behavior.
Conventional medicine may need to provide a cure before you can use vinegar and alcohol on your ears. To prevent future ear health problems, ear plugs can be used for swimmers to keep the ear canal dry.
