From the beginning of time tribes have turned to nature to find methods to heal their communities. The Native American tribes within the United States, have used Ear Candling or Coning as an alternative health modality for a variety of ailments. Native Americans are known for their wisdom in natural healing. I frequently performed Ear Candling therapy in my Esthetican practice. People were satisfied with the results and were repeat customers. Most people keep their teeth cleaned twice a month. How many of you are keeping your ears clean and healthy!
In a survival circumstance earaches and ear infections will increase in both adults and children. This will be very detrimental to the health of you and your family. Hearing loss can occur without treatment. Earaches are extremely painful for children. Children are more susceptible to Acute Otitis Media (AOM). This is the most common type of ear infection in children.
I recommend purchasing Ear Candles/Cones in bulk from your local Health Food Co-op. You may also purchase these items in bulk online. This is a safe alternative if your medications are dwindling. Please remember that this a preventive measure and cannot cure an existing medical condition.
Ear candles are not actual candles. These cones are actually strips of linen or cotton that have been dipped into beeswax and have been infused with medicinal herbs. They are shaped into a spiral and are hollow.
Their are many allopathic physicians that are against the use of natural remedies. If you are uncomfortable with this procedure please speak to your physician first. I am not dispensing medical advice, only preventive healthcare. Ear candling has personally helped me and my customers in the past.
Ear Candles are a hollow spiral. The cone is lit and gently placed in the outer ear. The heat and smoke generated from the lit cone will melt the excess wax with bacteria and draw the compacted wax out of the ear through negative pressure. I highly recommend these candles for your survival packs.
Another item I would recommend is Garlic Ear oil. Garlic contains powerful aromatic compounds that have antispectic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory actions. Garlic is great for fighting infections. You may obtain Garlic ear oil from your health food store. Please make sure that you purchase the oil that is contained in a amber bottle. Oils do become rancid and have a short shelf-life.
CONTRAINDICATIONS FOR EAR CANDLING THERAPY:
- Individuals that have perforation of the ear drum.
- Recent ear surgery, acute ear infection with a high temperature.
- Allergies to beeswax
Ear candling therapy should never be performed on oneself under any circumstances. This procedure should always be performed by a trained practitioner. As preppers take the responsibility to learn how to perform this procedure, there is a considerable risk of burns when performed by oneself. The practice will be safer under a trained individual.
