Dr Oz: Does Ear Candling Work? Ear Wax Candles Pros & Cons


Doctor Oz did a segment called “Does it Work?” and was asked does Ear Candling Work?  Dr Oz showed how to use Ear Wax Candles by putting your head to one side, putting the tapered side of a long candle into your ear, burning the opposite side of the candle and blowing it out so that it just smokes.  The smoke is supposed to clean out your ear.

    Ear candling has been a blessing to me. I have had BPPV or Benign Paroxysmal Postional Vertigo for the past 3 years and ear candling has been the one most significant procedure to help relieve my dizziness. I have been through biofeedback, and over 12 months of physical, visual and repostioning training and the candling has given me the most and quickest relief.

    Do they work for getting earwax out of your ears? Absolutely! If you use them you can cut them open and see the pile of nasty earwax they drew out. Try it an see for yourself. I do them twice a year and love them.

    If you burn an ear candle without it in your ear, the same wax will be produced. Studies have shown that there is no change in the amount of ear wax in canal after candling. So it may seem to work, but its just the placebo affect.
