In all seasons of the year and especially in cold seasons, various ear disorders such as otitis, labyrinthitis, mumps, tinnitus, Ménière syndrome, otosclerosis, ear wax or even deafness occur with increased frequency. Phytotherapy recommends a variety of remedies that help restore ear health.
External otitis is a congestive or suppurative, acute or chronic inflammation of the auditory external skin caused by ear auricular ejaculation caused by eyelid irritation with various hard objects (matches, toothpicks, clips, etc.) that cause eczema and boils or the penetration of foreign bodies or irritants.
Otitis media is an acute or chronic inflammation of the tympanum caused by infections with streptococci and staphylococci frequently originating from the nose and throat.
Labyrinthitis is an inflammation of the labyrinth in the inner ear due to chronic infections in the middle ear and mastoid.
Parotiditis, also called “childhood disease,” is a highly contagious infection caused by the airborne urine virus after prolonged or repeated contact with the sources of infection.
Tinnitus are real hearing sensations in the absence of any vibration in the ambient air, but only perceived by the sick. It manifests in the form of whistles, whistles, musical orchestras, ocean whistles, hammering or bells.
Ménière’s syndrome is manifested by sudden sudden dizziness, migraines, vertigo, gradual hearing loss, tiredness for hours or even a day or two, static imbalance that requires wall support (sometimes the patient falls), nausea, vomiting , pale, cold sweat, palpitations, fear, anxiety and deep anxiety.
Otosclerosis is the process of progressive ossification of the labyrinth. It starts at the joint between the foot’s foot and the oval window blocking the sound transducer.
Deafness (hearing loss) is a neurosensory disease in the ear that consists of a decrease in hearing acuity due to a deterioration in the functioning of the auditory nerve, more often in women.
Ear wax, known as cerumen, is formed by the accumulation, in the external auditory conductor, of a quantity of cerumenal glands secretion. It has the role of protecting the eardrum against various impurities and dust from the outside.
For otitis and labyrinth, the most useful are plants with vasodilating and anti-inflammatory properties applied in external use:
