Ear infections are
common in children but I never suffered when I
was small. So I was surprised as an adult
when I started to get regular ear infections
often in both ears at the same time.
It coincided with suffering from candida but at
the time my Doctor refused to acknowledge that
candida existed! So I decided to do
my own investigation!
infections are caused by bacteria entering the
ear and other infections are caused by fungi.
There are different types of fungi which can
cause ear infections including candida.
Now this interested me as I suspected that
candida was causing my recurrent ear problems
although I had no idea whether it was directly
causing them (i.e. did I have candida inside my
ears?) or indirectly in some way. Once I
realised that the candida was probably to blame
I knew the ear infections would stop once the
candida was gone. Easier said than done.
My research showed that it helped
to keep the ears clean using olive oil if
necessary to remove excess wax (see my method
below). I also made sure I used a gentle
washing powder for my pillow cases as I noticed
that the side I sleep on tended to get more ear
infections. This may have been due more to
the warmth generated by my head against the
pillow but I was happy to change washing powder
in case it helped too.
Online I found a brilliant
now believe that candida often thrives when
people are suffering from 'internal dampness'.
I dont know if everyone with candida has this
condition but I know that I did and I am still
prone today. I've written a post on this
on my blog (click
here to read it).
If you feel internal dampness could be causing
your health problems and ear infections then
please seek professional help from a Chinese
medicine expert or do your own research. I
also found the
Clinic website really helpful.
In the end I was
getting so many infections I kept a regular
supply of ear drops in the house. If you
are suffering in the same way please keep
positive as I eventually stopped this problem
and I never get ear infections now I've free of
candida. Yet I was having almost
continual infections while I was ill.
Some Relief From Ear Infections
I taught myself
EFT which is free and easy to learn. I use it
with all sorts of ailments and even mental
issues. You can learn yourself by

The only other
thing that I could do while I was on the
anti-candida treatment was to try to keep my
ears as clean as possible. I used special
ear plugs when I went swimming and if I ever
felt my ears starting to get blocked I used
olive oil to clean them. Below is my
tried-and-tested olive oil method.
How To Unblock
All you need is a very
small quantity of olive oil and time to relax.
This is a great method for helping to soften and remove any debris or wax inside
the ear. And its easy and cheap to use!
Just put some olive oil into a small plastic
container and float in a cup of boiling water
for a minute or so to gently warm it. You
don't want the oil to be hot so take care. Then use a small jug
or ideally a clean dropper to put a couple of
drops in your ear. Its easier if a friend
does it while you lie on your side with your
head as flat as possible (to let the oil drain
into the ear).
Relax and let the oil stay in the ear for as long as
possible. After say 10 mins tilt your head
to the opposite side and hold a tissue next to your ear to catch the
oil. You may like to rinse your ear with
warm water to help remove any residue or debris.
You may need to repeat this several times over a
few days to
clear the ears.
