April 9 2009
Dear Dr.

I need a help please.

In my both ears are always itching inside and I have to clean with ear pads. In my left ear is always giving ringing sound and the sound is increasing day by day.
I am unable to hear properly in my left ear. I am unable to hear any phone calls in my left ear. So I went to ENT doctor and he said that I have blockage in my ear and it has to be operated otherwise I will not able to hear in future. I don't want to go for an operation.

Can you help with right remedies please?

Thank and Regards,
Arvinth

Please clarify further. What is the diagnosis of the doctor for operation? Is there an ear polyp? Is there an abscess in the ear? What is the operation for ? Is there anything visible to be operated? Do you have pain in the ear? Do you see any black colouration inside the ear like eczema etc. which is triggering the itch? What is the wax position? Is wax dry or oozing or humid? What do you clean with the bud, wax. Do you see any fungus on the ear drum? Is there too much wax in the ear? What kind of sounds are being produced? The sounds from ear are generally termed Tinnitus. I shall mention few types of noises:
Cracking noises while chewing is the common complaint. Whistling, Whizzing, Buzzing, ringing, humming like telephone line, noise like moving trains, chirping birds, ringing bells, roaring winds,storm,sea waves, ones own noises, and all sorts of noises which are not separately distinguishable.

Have you been using NSAIDs( i.e. non steroidal analgesic or aspirin(salicylic acid) content medicines too often? Have you had malaria? Have you been taking quinine?

How much is your hearing capacity now? Have you been sneezing? Have you had dizziness? Are you getting withdrawn from society or that kind of feeling? Have you got any difficulty with Sounds. Like Do you get dizzy hearing loud sounds?

Please answer the questions to help me help you. with best wishes.

Well, that is excellent. The moment you said the polyps, the reason is understood. You may see the link for an understanding of polypus. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polyp_(medicine)

It is basically a soft tumor normally found in the nose because of abnormal growth of mucous membrane, it can be found in uterus, rectum, ears and other regions. The cause is mainly infections and irritations. There is always a chance of its increasing in size or number as nasal polyps can reach upto the brain. In the nose also it blocks the breathing forcing many to breathe through mouth. In the ear it interferes with hearing. I should think that you are lucky that in all probablity your hearing should be returned after removal of the polyps by medicines or otherwise. About surgery doctors will have a better understanding of the results.

What I will like you to do is to use the "Boericke materia medica"in google and check the symptoms of the following medicines and tell me why their symptom pictures are very close to yours.

1. Baryta Muriatica
2. Causticum
3. Natrium Salicylicum
4. Salicylic Acid
5. Kali Mur
6. Picric Acid
7. Thiosiaminum.
8. Alumina
9. Calcaria Carb
10. Calcaria Iodide
11.Fomica Rufa
12. Kali Nitrate
13. Mercurious(Merc.Sol)
14. Taxus baccata
15. Teucrium Mar Q
16. Cina
17. Sulphur.

I have added the last three medicines due to a peculiar reason. The reasoning is that the polypus might have grown out of the irritation you had created to the ear by itching., insertion of buds and the like. The itching of the ear in turn have been caused by worms in the intestine and in particular Ascarides or Ascariasis. You may check your stool to confirm this. My conclusion is also based on the fact that basically the polypus contains apart from thickened membranes and dilated blood vessels, Lyphocytes, Plasma Cells, esonophils entrapped in it. The presence of high rate of esonophils also indicates infection or infestation of worms. You could check your blood to the level of esonophils. In such cases the three medicines at the end would be sufficient. Otherwise too Sulphur and Cina will immediately stop your itching and in a period of time the polypus will shrink to normal if the cause was itching and irritation. Anyhow I need your complete feedback to arrive at any conclusion. With best wishes.

Dear Dr.Udaya,

Thank you so much for your detailed information. Really it gives me good picture about the problem. I didnít get such detailed information from my ENT specialist when he said about the operation. Now I understand that nose and ear are linked together.

In 2008 I have done ďNose septum deviationĒ operation with same ENT specialist. Now he gave me the following web site for more details about the problem and operation.

http://www.steadyhealth.com/articles/Nasal_septum__Deviation_and_Septoplasty_a618_f0.html

I donít have any medical background so I misunderstood that I have polypus in my ear when my ENT said I have blockage in my ear. So I am very sorry for the mistake.

After your detailed information, yesterday I have asked my ENT specialist to explain me about the operation (what is the reason for blockage and what type of operation will be performed etc...). He said that I have ďOtosclerosisĒ (abnormal growth of bone of the middle ear) and I have to go under surgery called ďStapedectomyĒ. He also provided me the following 2 web sites to understand the problem and corresponding treatment.

http://www.nidcd.nih.gov/health/hearing/otosclerosis.asp
http://www.patient.co.uk/showdoc/23069149/

Please can you give good solution because I donít want to go for an operation.


Thanks and Regards,
Arvinth

Arvinth,
It is good that you have said it now. The Ear and Nose are connected physically through the Eustachian Tube. But that is not the connection here. It would be correct to say the problems of the nose and the ear are connected.
i.e Septum Deviation and Otosclerosis are connected. In one it is the direct cause and in the other it is an indirect cause. In Septum deviation one of the cause and the cause in your case is cartilaginous growth abnormality. i.e. the Septum overgrows the outer skin in an abnormality which is very common in many people and therefore the nose bends to a side which is corrected by surgical procedure and that is what you have done which has not further complications. But in the case of the middle ear bone, it is the overgrowth in the middle ear bone which is creating sclerosis or obstruction in the flow of sound waves and vibrations that the hearing is impaired. Surgical procedures are known correction.

In homeopathy we do have medicines, but how far successful is for you to find out as individual case. The overgrowth as we can see is an abnormality which should be happening due to some particular element which you or your family have been including in your daily diet. If you can recognise it and avoid it, then further growth can be arrested. Why I say is that the only medicine which is known to have such a property of arresting the extra growth in bones is HEKLA LAVA. As the word indicates the medicine is made from the Lava of Hekla volcano. The story goes that the cattle fed on the grass grown in the area of the lava from this volcano had excess growth of bones or exostosis in bones which ultimately were traced to the Lava and the lava was brought to use in homeopathy to reverse the situation of excess growth of cartleges and bones. You can see the complete story in the link :
www.btinternet.com/~wellmother/heklalava.htm

but what is relevant here is the ash nearer to the volcano is said to be inert. Contains silica, alumina, lime, magnesia and oxide of iron. (Clarke). From the Volcano World site, the chemical composition is listed as:
SiO2
TiO2
Al2O3
FeO
MnO
MgO
CaO
Na2O
K2O
P2O5

The conclusion are two :

1. The Hekla Lava could be a solution to your problem probably a cure.

2. One of the constituents above is in excess in your food intake in the family for a period of time. Identify that and reduce or stop altogether that element from the food. Like Tin, Iron, Manganese, Magnesium, Phosphates or phosphorus, Calcium,Silica, Aluminium, Potassium, Sodium.

If silica is responsible, Silicea should correct, if Nitric Acid is responsible, Nitric Acid should correct. Calcaria Phos, Calcaria Carb, Calcaria Fluor, Fluoric Acid, Phosphorus, Aurum Metalicum, theridion, Guaj., Staphisagria, Ruta, Baryta Muriaticum, Arnica Montana, Alumina, Kali Mur., Thiosinaminum 2X, Petroleum, Picric Acid., Natrium Sal., Salicylic Acid, Siphilinum, Mezerium,Stannum (Tin, Manganum (Aceticum),Magnesium Carbonicum are some other medicines which may be helpful. You can see that most of the medicines corresponds to the elements which I have mentioned above. Other elements could be added according to symptoms and what is not required eliminated.

I do not think that treatment can be made through forum. You are well advised to see a good homeopathic doctor of your locality and see what best can be done in consultation with your doctor who had advised surgery. with best wishes. With best wishes.

Arvinth,
Which part of India you are from? I hope you are not from Tamil Nadu or Orissa, Behar? Water is one of the sources of excess elements getting ingested to the body. The belt which I talked have more cases of otosclerosis than other regions. Adding fluoride to water is said to have reduced otosclerosis cases in UK. You can get the routine water you are using tested for its contents to know whether they contain, lime, calcium, fluoride and the kind of elements in excess. "In excess" is different from "adding" fluoride because in "adding" fluoride the dilution process is at work which is homeopathic in content, where as "excess" is saturated and of material doses.) You can see that Calcarea fluor and Fluoric Acid are few of the remedies which we have already shortlisted. Boiling the water and filtering or using Alum (fitcary) to the water while boiling (less than a grain) is one way of purifying the water.

Dear Udaya,
Thank you so much for reply.
I am basically from Tamil Nadu but currently living in Germany. Normaly I used to drink filtered and boiled water. To filter the water I am using the "Brita" water filter, which is comman in Germany.Last 2 years I am using this water filter.

Shall I chnage to the bottle water which is available in the supermarket?

I am taking Hekla Lava 30 D since last 2 dyas (3 globe per day).

Shall I take Calcarea fluor and Fluoric Acid along with Hekla Lava?

Thank you so much for the help.

Thanks and Regards,
Arvinth

Dear Arvith Gutan Tag,

Bone formations are like formation of sedimentary rocks. Takes pretty long time. I do not think the water in germany has anything to do with though the water in the area has lime and calcium in it. The water in the tap usually comeout white untile settled.

You must be having plenty of good homeo doctors in Germany.

Take one medicine at a time. What I suggest normally is to take a medicine for maximum three days. Give a gap of week and repeat it. After two or three days of close watch you can use Fluoric Acid or Calcarea fluor. Since you are dealing with ear, need be careful and should know precisely which medicine is acting how.

The following micro yogic exercise can be done to improve the power of the ear.

Standing straight, keep both thumbs in respective ears. Both index fingers on respective closed eyes. Keep the middle fingers on sides respective nostrils closing them with bit pressure, keep the rest of the fingers on the mouth. Each finger represent one of the five gross elements and it is respectively connected with those organs which have evolved from those elements. Fully expand your mouth with air drawn in through using your lips and tongue in the shape of a beak of crow (it is the whistling shape of mouth). Close the mouth after filling the air. Bring the chin to the Kandhakoopa i.e. pit of the throat. Keep it there as long as you can hold your breath. Bring back the head to normal and release the air slowly through the nostrils. Do it once in a day. The maximum prescribed in a day is five times. If it is benefitting you, you can do it on a regular basis. With best wishes.

With best wishes.
