I have always had trouble with my ears since I was a young boy and ended up in Alder Hey Hospital with a ear infection called Otatis Media.
Over the years I have had my ears syringed a number of times to remove hardened wax . But it can be dangerous to the ear drum if the ear wax has not been loosened properly.
Talking to my sister in law in New Zealand about the problems I am having yet again with my ears . She mentioned Ear Candling . At first I thought she was having me on. Because she mentioned that you insert a special type of candle in your ear and light the other end ( not the end you put in your ear ) as I originally thought.
So I started looking into it . And sure enough found lots of information on it. Although used in many parts of the world . One of the main users of this treatment were the Hopi Indians Of North America.
Have you ever used the Ear Candling Method and have you found it beneficial.

I've not heard of it but would give it a go if I had the problem. Our water is very hard in this area and makes me wonder if it contributes to the build up of hard wax. My Brizilian sister in law says that cleaning of your iron's sole plate is effective with a candle. Must give that a go.

Pom keeps a stock of candles since living in a village days and regular power cuts!

To counteract and ease ear wax build up, put prescibed ear drops in your ear daily.

Have your ears checked every six months. Should the problem continue, ask your GP to refer you to a ENT specialist.

Alan, I think you will find the Blue Brick Treatment better and far more effective at removing wax. <yikes>

Mr Amp, you need two blue bricks. Carefully place one blue brick on the ground or firm platform. With a silver trowel carefully place your testicles on the first blue brick and then rapidly lower the second brick onto the first.
You'll be amazed at how fast the wax pops out of your ears.....<laugh>

p.S. this treatment has also enabled a camel to take on an extra weeks supply of water. <ok>

Alan, they should do fine if you can lift one and move it down with some haste. I'm told squeezing the sphericals in a vice does not work, as the wax does not pop out....<laugh>
