  1. How long will my ears be clogged, even while I use garlic oil, heating pad, essential oils, etc?
    I’be heard some have it for weeks before it unclogs. Is that accurate? I’m so panicky and scared with my ears clogged. Please help. Dr.’s are trying to bog me down with antibiotics and I refuse as they cause more problems!

    • Hi Starr

      Same here but I’ve just read up about all of the above and I think try it and see if it works. If you have no infection anymore, try the Ear Popper or Otovent but to do so, first make sure you don’t have a perforated ear drum before you try these or anything like drops as well.

      I’m waiting for my infection to clear up and I read mine could be down to Candidiasis (oral Thrush) from the Antibiotics and Prednisone I was put on 2 weeks ago…

      The best results I’ve seen with my health in all this time, has been with taking Garlic everyday ( I slightly simmered them as I couldn’t do raw…) Apple Cider Vinegar – 2tble spoons in warm water, No Sugar / Honey (until completely healed), lots of salt gargling and Saline rinses – BUT the biggest change came with the use Organic Virgin Coconut Oil.

      Try using some when doing a warm salt water rinse (about 1 teaspoon) it will melt in the warm water. You can also drink it with warm water and do Oil pulling for about 10-20 min then spit is all out.

      Definitely try Tumeric with Piperine (about 1200mg) 1-2 tabs per day for reducing inflammation as well.

      Hope you get better soon…Can’t wait to get my normal hearing and health back and hope you do to 🙂

  2. I first had this for months in 2011 after a strep throat infection and bad cough and flu. I cured it naturally but when i had the eustachian tube problem not going away the dr gave me antibiotics. It didnt help and made me have to recover from that as well. I got relief by getting rid of a memory foam topper, using apple cider vinegar with organic garlic and sage regularly then once in a while and using a neti pot every day. Eventually i stopped the neti pot after i got rid of memory foam mattress..eating best as i can and getting sun or vitamin d. I still have it at times but now i know its my throat and nasal infections that i have to treat the most and strengthen immune system.
