We all vacuum cleaner sans lubricant sans antibiotic in our ears. We call that good stuff, the earwax. While it’s already a blessing to have such a gooey stuff in our ears, some people produce more of this good stuff that it already irritates the inside of the ear and worst, will likely produce hearing impairment. Most doctors do not know why some of us produce more earwax, but alternative doctors say that it’s all because of our diet. Here is what they have to say on treating earwax buildup naturally.
If you have earwax buildup on your right ear, lie on your left side and out a few drops of olive oil on that ear. Lie still for some 15 minutes. This should loosen the earwax. This must be done at least 4 times a day. Symptoms of irritation and impaired hearing should gradually decrease.
It could also help to take a supplement of flaxseed oil .This is rich in fatty acids which is known to reduce inflammation. Take 1,000 milligram capsule at least 3 times day. And since most alternative doctors would say that too much earwax is because of poor food choices, one must cut back on saturated fats.
Increase intake of the “good fats” found in fish, nuts, and seeds. These are the omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids. Of course, it pays to have good ear hygiene. Always clean your ears using the prescribed cotton buds and avoid pushing and probing on the insides to avoid more injury.
