Each time I feel an ear ache coming on, I repeat these exercises and it works wonderfully. No more aspirin, no more sleepless nights.

May I ask what you mean by sucking in and pushing out? Does this mean swallowing deeply or sucking air deeply in and out of the mouth? I am confused. I have ear trouble all the time and would appreciate a better understanding by what you mean to say to do. Awaiting your kind reply,
On Dr. Oz's tv program the other day, he said he and his family have used garlic as a home remedy for earaches. He says to insert the whole, peeled, garlic clove in the ear at bedtime. It works for them! I thought that was interesting, and as I had recently had some ear problems, I figured I'd try it the next time the ear ache hit.
I'll certainly consider the exercise, but want to pass on the medical fact that "artificial butter flavoring" is an additive to popcorn, breads, and crackers/cookies that causes earaches in me and my family, as well as respiratory infections and worse in many folks.... the chemical is called Diacetyl
"the vapors emitted from butter flavoring are a complex mixture that produces necrosis that cannot be explained by the known toxicological properties of any of its components." (Hubbs, et al. 2002)" from the website; http://thepumphandle.wordpress.com
It took trial and error and a lot of discussion among the mothers at Homeschool Coop to finally discover that a father has always had a long history with such difficulties and is a popcorn fanatic. Once discovered and eliminated, he healed and never ate it nor suffered ever again.
Bacteria likely gets stuck in the sticky residue the Diacetyl
produces in the ear, can be smelled in the wax from the ear, and it smells like burned popcorn, with Act I, II, etc being the worst offender, but ANY product that describes itself as being "butter flavored" is suspect.
Antihistamine and Robitussin "Guafinesen" helped our family until we began eliminating the offending products with the chemical. Watch out for Mrs. Baird's breads/ rolls/ pastries especially....we only recently began having the
problems again after routinely buying from their outlet stores after a few years' absence.
Food flavorings have been known to use this chemical as well as cake mixes. God bless you and keep you alert. : )
A warm hairdryer blown over the ear area will often help to ease earaches.
It eases the pain until I can get her to the doctor's office. (05/03/2005)
