    Excessive ear wax

    Primal Fuel
    I frequently get so much ear wax in my right ear that I suffer hearing loss. That seems to run in my family. (Not necessarily the right ear.) Not a problem to get out with standard was removal kit.

    Grok obviously couldn't pop out to the drug store for a kit. I wonder if something I am eating, not eating, doing, not doing causes this. I have googled but no luck.

    I've heard that if you have good omega 3 oils (fish oil, krill oil) that the wax will be less likely to cake and build up. I'm not at all sure just how one would set about proving that.

    Of you eat dairy, drop all but butter, or drop all of it. For me, it was a manifestation of a dairy allergy that caused that.

    Do your ears feel wet at times? I have numerous food intolerances and if I get contaminated my ears are wet and clogged the next morning. Also candida can cause excess ear wax. Your plan of action would be to completely remove all potential allergens, including dairy, and get some good probiotics.

    You could try using coconut oil to soften the wax.

    3lac is excellent, if a little expensive.

    The wet ears thing is from hypothyroidism. Julia Ross discusses this in "The Diet Cure."

    I agree about the dairy. It causes a lot of ear/sinus issues for those who are sensitive to it, myself included.

    Yes I did know that but I haven't tried it.

    My thyroid is definitely ok though.

    You don't use Q-tips, do you? Those just compact the stuff more.
