Candling
Ha! Well, I did ear candling tonight, and thought it was great!

Then I discovered it was a hoax.

We lit one without inserting it into an ear, and indeed, the interior looked exactly like one that had. Same powder, same wax.

If you ever get the opportunity to do it, don't bother.

Apparently, it runs on wishful thinking and litle more.

Too bad, really. :(

I'm feeling all kinds of: Sucking my brains out my ear through a straw
What I hear: what? what?

hope your ears are okay. if you want to clean them out, use warm water in the shower often for a bit. If its bad you can go to the doctor. Its possible to over irritate all the little silia or whatever it is in your ears so give them a break.

Alot of stuff you see on tv is totally false, especially when they get info from the internet. Pretty much don't trust alot of these alternative health sites too, in my experience.

post more!
