Ear Candling is an old home remedy. No claim is made nor should be made for any cure of any disease or ailment. Information herein is not

Candling is a natural ear cleaning technique which began centuries ago, possibly in Egypt. It is based on the theory that the cleaning effects are possible because all the passages in the head are interconnected, allowing the candles to drain the entire system osmotically through the membrane of the ear. The use of a hollow, waxed cloth candle is a simple home remedy which assists in removing ear wax and may improve any of the following conditions: sinus problems, sore throat, ear ache, swimmer's ear, some chronic headaches, allergies and hearing difficulty .

The internal carotid artery, auditory tube, cochlear nerve, facial nerve, semicircular canal and the first turn of the cochlea are all located in the area immediately behind the tempanic membranes. All nerves have a thin coating of spinal fluid which can become polluted. The fluid in your body circulates 14 times per day in order to cleanse itself. If the system is laden with toxicity, the body cannot take in what it needs in the way of metabolites for the nerves. The only mechanical influence on our ears is when we swallow or when we hold our breath. These are the only ways available to alter the pressure in our ears to clear our eustachian tubes. If the eustachian tubes are irritated, they will not drain. When you swallow and have anything covering your ears, it constricts the bones by creating more of an internal vacuum. If the pressure continues to build up, your body reaches a point of stasis. The pressure cannot be released and continues to build.

The ear canal itself helps support the brain, a pivot point for the skull. These bones need only move a paper's thickness worth of distance in order to make a correction. When the bones are properly aligned, the osmotic pressure on the nerves relating to your senses are shifted also. It is believed that the gentle reverse osmotic pressure of the ear candling is enough to effect such a correction, which is why people often feel better after candling. Cranial bones can become misaligned for many reasons: colds, birth trauma, environmental toxicity, hats, earphones, telephones, scarves, glasses-- all these can change the osmotic pressure on the nerves which deal with taste, smell, hearing and sight. The cochlea is responsible for sound production. It is a fluid filled structure which is located in a cavity. The cochlear area and the semicircular canal can become infected and irritated. The tiny cochlea hairs can become laden with debris and cease to move as freely as they should when stimulated. The smoke and gentle vacuum created by the candling process cleans the lymphs within this structure as well as the cochlear hairs themselves, improving their function.

Old ear wax and toxins are drawn up into the candle which is lit and placed gently in the ear. The low flame of the candle creates a slow vacuum which softens and pulls the old wax into the base of the candle. When the candle has burned sufficiently, you can then examine the inside of the candle to see just what was in the ear. Laboratory analysis has shown the residue removed by candling consisted of earwax, residuals of past infections, fungus, bacteria, yeast, ear mites, worms, parasites and hair. The remains in the candle, when it is opened, is mainly what has been pulled from the person's ear -- only an estimated 20% is the candle residue. You will see Ear Wax: Color will be in various tones of yellow, brown and/or black. Some of the yellow tone wax will most likely be candle wax; Infections/Fungue: White and flaky powder which may have a yeasty odor (Candida). Approximately 1% to 10% of the powder is from the used candle; Other Debris: Sand, dirt, seeds, parasites, hair, cotton, etc.

There is no discomfort to the person receiving the candling. A candling session takes approximately 20 minutes for each ear. A person with severe pain can be candled 3 times (2 candles per ear) 48 hours apart. It takes the ears about 24 hours to replace their protective coating of wax -- not advisable to do candling every day. Never exceed 4 candles per ear in anyone candling session as the canal may get irritated and swell. When candling a very young child, 1/2 to 1 candle per ear is all that is needed. Maintenance can be done with the change of seasons or whenever needed. Let the client's common sense determine.

Only one ear can he candled at a time. The person being candled must be positioned where they are always laying down on one ear.
