    No more ear wax

    Shop Now
    I have always used a Q-tip to clean my ears post shower and have always gotten enough wax to color the tip yellow, but nothing excessive unless I miss a few days of cleaning my ears.

    Since going Primal I get absolutely nothing on the tip, I mean to tell you that I have no ear wax at all. What is up with that?

    I have actually always enjoyed the feeling of cleaning the wax from my ears, but I am just wasting Q-tips if I continue to try cleaning my ears with them.

    I'm sure it isn't a cause for concern, just wondering if anyone else has experienced this?

    Before I went primal my ears would get plugged up at night or if I went under water. I no longer have the plugging up at night problem. I have not been swimming since going primal so we'll see what happens this summer.

    Same here, although I never thought about it until I read this. Earwax is like bellybutton lint, you don't miss it if it's not there!

    I'm thankfully getting rid of the dept of my belly button too, so much less lint, lol.

    I'm hoping having less ear wax is good for the ear. I know I won't need to do any ear candling while staying Primal.

    I think it has to do with reducing Omega 6 fats. I had the same experience.

    Yet another bonus of eating properly...yeah! I had noticed this change also...didn't really notice it enough to comment, but yeah, there's a lot less colour on the swabs now.

    Now that you mention it, I've noticed the same thing. I don't get eye crusties in the morning, either.

    I just noticed this today, and then saw this thread. Glad to know I'm not the only one!
