Do Age-Old Therapies Really Work?

What is ear candling and does it really work?

Ear candling is simply an ancient remedy dating back thousands of years. It is used to cleanse the ear canal without the use of solutions or probes. Believers say it can stop headaches, ringing in the ears, migraines, ear infections, chronic sinusitis, excessive wax in the ears and much more. But it is important to note — ear candling is NOT A CURE FOR ANY DISEASE OR ILLNESS. While many believe it can bring positive health benefits, you must be the ultimate judge in determining if this time honored practice will be beneficial for you.

It is important to find someone who is trained in the process! Do your research !!! Ask questions. High quality ear candles are handmade from beeswax and unbleached cotton cloth. Through a process of convection, soft waxes and toxins will be drawn out of the ear, oxidized and turned into vapor during the procedure.

WARNING! There is no medical evidence that ear candling works. In fact, In 2007 the United States Food and Drug Administration issued an alert identifying ear candles as ”dangerous to health when used in the dosage or manner” … “since the use of a lit candle in the proximity of a person’s face would carry a high risk of causing potentially severe skin/hair burns and middle ear damage.”

Can reflexology  detox your body of impurities, improve your health and change your life?

Well, it is highly unlikely that reflexology can accomplish miracles, but many people swear that there is truth to the art of restoring health through special massage technique applied to the feet.

Reflexology is a form of  treatment used in India, Japan and China for about 5,000 years!  It is said that reflexology is stimulation of the body’s healing forces through foot massage and manipulation of pressure points of the feet and hands.

Reflexology is not a “cure all” and there is little scientific evidence to support it, but those who practice the ancient art  believes it  helping the body release pain and stress and attain perfect balance.

It is NOT a medical treatment and there are few regulations about who can call themselves a “reflexologist”, so do your research and it may be best to consider it as a massage alternative. It just may bring the relief you’ve been looking for!
