Ear Candles Don’t Suck But THIS Does! FDA Approval #2

Posted in Ear Candle History, The Science of Ear Candles at 9:25 pm by Administrator

Remember when all the skeptics said that it was IMPOSSIBLE for an ear candle to suck wax out of the ear?  Then the medical “professionals” declared “EAR CANDLES ARE A SCAM!”

Remember when the medical “professionals” and the FDA said in order for a vacuum to actually pull wax out of the ear it would have to be so intense that it would cause damage to the ear drum? Once again, Ear Candles were put to shame because we actually thought they weren’t harmful.

Shame on us because the picture BELOW is the only “APPROVED” way to suck wax out of your ear. . . .even though the medical profession has already stated that kind of suction would damage the ear drum.

Remember, you saw it here FIRST!  LOL  Click on the picture to enlarge it.

Ear Candles Don't Suck But THIS Does!

I guess it’s the amount you $$ PAY $$  that determines if the treatment is “Approved” or not.  Sure seems the Doctors are making a fortune on something you can do at home with a lot less stress.

Pass this on to all your ear candling friends and supporters!

Don’t forget to order ear candles for Fall allergy season.  Ragweed is wayyyy up! Order from your favorite companies by clicking here

    This is a scam. I promise you there are NO ear candles approved by the FDA … YET :) We are working on it. But this is a flat out scam and when the FDA gets a hold of them, I do not feel sorry for them. You are right, they are mismarketing and using price and hype to distract from true value. Good job for exposing them! Give me a call soon!

    I think, Doc. You might be talking about the “WaxVac” and posted here under the “Microsuction” procedure Dr’s are doing right now. Personally, I don’t think the FDA should EVER get their hands on ear candles. I don’t think ear candles should have an FDA APPROVED status. That just means they will be regulated out of existence and then folks will have to pay an arm and a leg to get ear candled.

    Er… no.

    The argument against ear candles was that to suck wax out of the ear hole a vacuum would need to be created that would be strong enough to pull out the ear drum. Which is true.

    This is a very small (micro suction) device that is placed inside the ear and under direct vision sucks up a little bit of wax at a time.

    As an analogy – imagine trying to clean the carpet of a room by sticking a gigantic vacuum cleaner over the door. To suck dirt off the floor it would pull everything else in the room in. That is what a device that created a vacuum over the ear hole would be. By contrast a microsuction device is the equivalent of walking round with a vacuum cleaner sucking the dirt up off the carpet.

    Micro suction isn’t really used in the UK for simple ear wax removal (ear syringing is still used widely) but it does get used to remove the debris in ear infections.

    While the Ear Candle Lady agrees that ear candles have never been vacuums and education/knowledge is power, my argument about the micro suction device is it’s EXACTLY what the FDA claims is dangerous about ear candles. Anybody with common sense knows you would have to place the “vacuum” over the ear to create the suction you describe, and both ear candles AND the micro suction device are not designed that way. The micro suction device is nothing more than a glorified “straw” which medical professionals charge hundreds of dollars for. It’s contradiction in it’s best form and yet the FDA says the micro suction method is “approved”. It’s just another way to gouge patients and add to their discomfort.
