Yes Asha, Have tried Hopi ear candling.

Only once, and not by myself but with a therapist in Manchester of all places. Had an attack of sinusitis for the first time in 15 years and probably caused by the drastic change in air from Bavaria, so a friend who was with me dragged me off kicking and screaming...candles in the ears � please I think not...did find it the weirdest of sensations but in this case it definitely worked. The entire head, neck and face pain disappeared, there was an immediate return to single and un-blurred vision and it was possible to breathe again.

Am not sure that I would try it at home though, although I know it is not usual to have it as a home treatment in Germany. The candles are for sale in health food shops for example.

one day i will go to germany and see the sights and compare herbal ideas, there is a lot to see i know that. one of the things i admire is the german scientists who are reputed to be the best in the world, just look at the cars and super train they have? years ago they were trying to build a flying saucer and had one lift of the ground 20 feet high, it was driven by a motor influenced by magnetic energy. who knows it could be this year,i would love to go to america as well, especially new york or florida.

Wow, I'm well aware of Eastern health remedies but never heard of European homeopathic treatments. Thanks, Francine!

Asha, I have tried ear candling and it did not work. All it did was irritate my ears. I do not know why it is called "Hopi Ear Candling", for the Hopi peoples do not practice this method.

Wikipedia has a good article on this at: Ear Candling

Francine and Phyllis

I've had Hopi ear candling a couple of times - once a friend who got me Hopie candles as a present did it and I was not sure how much difference it made - think I was quite nervous! The second time a friend who has trained in how to do it came round and we did each other - I found this incredibly relaxing we had soft lighting and I put on harp music which remarkably lasted exactly the time for each treatment. It felt it made a difference at the time, clearing my head whcih was bunged up and my hearing felt clearer. Phyllis thanks for the article link.

Lori I was lucky enough to have a doctor who also offered homeopathic medicine when I was growing up - I was very lucky as at the time such doctors were extremely rare. I'd say in the UK there are a lot more trained homeopaths now, some with medical backgrounds.

Thank you very much Phyllis and Rosie L for your comments. Am glad that you found the article interesting.

In a way it is also another side to the usual impression of Germany that it is something of a conformist country, which it is of course in quite a few respects but not this, and I really do appreciate your feedback.
