If you suffer from clogged ears that feel plugged or a fullness that is difficult to clear, this video and my ETD Q&A video are great places to start. A lot of people report muffled hearing, popping or clicking in the ears or even have tinnitus or ringing in the ears that has been helped by these simple exercises focused on eustachian tube dysfunction.
I am often asked if people should fly in a airplane with ETD and the inability to clear their ears with altitude. This can sometimes result in pain in the ears and even damage. So, proceed with caution and perform these ear exercises 2 times per day.

There is no promise here but a lot of clinical success.
These exercises may help resolve ETD and they are an adjunct to our in-office therapy.

Here is a link to the 2006 study on an acupuncture point that helps with tinnitus:
The directions for this point in the study were “The ACP point used in the patients in the Study Group is located 6.5 cm above the apex of the ear in the temporo-parietal region.”
I mention OIL PULLING in the video. This is to help pull mucus away from the nasopharynx where the opening of your Eustachian Tube is and it’s helped a lot of my patients. This oil is a bit pricey but it works so well: https://amzn.to/2wlnzxp
