Have you ever noticed how sometimes you don’t seem to hear as clearly as you did a few weeks ago? There are times that you consciously or subconsciously feel a little unbalanced or even a little dizzy.
The human auditory system provides more than just our ability to hear sounds. It also provides balance to our bodies. The outer portions of this system is protected by a semi thick, yellowish substance which is commonly known as “wax”. This wax helps in protecting the outer parts of the auditory system from infections, from dust and insects which might get in, and from microscopic germs and bacteria. Ideally, this wax finds its way automatically out of your system through the lobes after it gets dried up.
But at times, this process of drying up and being expelled from the system doesn’t occur efficiently enough. This results in the in the wax hardening up and remaining within the inner parts of the auricle. This in turn means that your hearing becomes muffled, your body feels a bit off balance and over all, you just don’t feel right.
A relatively modern, clinically proven method of eliminating the problem is the use of medicinal drops being periodically put in to the auricle. These medicines are designed to soften and melt the wax, thereby assisting in the expelling of it.
However, there is another age old method, used for centuries in many countries and cultures the world over, which is making a comeback in modern day society. Ear candles, a slim, cone shaped object, is carefully inserted in to the auditory canal while the patient is lying on his or her side with the offending lobe turned upwards. Once steady, it is lit up with a match or a lighter. The hot air that is produced warms up the hardened wax, thereby making it’s elimination from the auditory system easier.
In addition to its core functionality, ear candles online are therapeutic and relaxing. Who wouldn’t like to lie on a nice comfy bed and have warm air flowing in to a stuffy auditory canal and feel the clogged up, hardened wax just melting away, restoring the perfect hearing that you always enjoyed and the perfect sense of physical balance that is required to get about your day to day life without wondering if you’d become unsteady and fall?
Therapy and relaxation aside, the main functionality of these items are to clear up built up excessive wax, a very important maintenance purpose for one of the most important organs in the human body.
