How to Get Fluid Out of Your Ears

I told you last Tuesday that I had had fluid in my ears. Since I don’t know that most people will find it easy enough to go to a Chiropractor for an ear adjustment – or that most would even want to – I thought I would tell you how a Naturopathic Doctor told me to drain my ears.

I’ve had trouble with my ears since I was a kid and once I was older my biggest problem was fluid in my ears. One Naturopathic Doctor told me that my ears were the cleanest she’d seen, but that my ear’s Eustachian tubes are extremely small.

So, she told me how to drain them and I’ve used it many times with great success.

It might sound weird, but it’s the easiest and safest way (in my opinion) to get fluid out of your ears.

What you need is a bucket that comfortably fits your feet. Then turn your faucet onto hot and fill the bucket about a 1/3 of the way. You need to get your feet in the water as hot as you can stand it (you can put some cold water in at this point if you need to so it’s comfortable enough to keep your feet in the water).

The trick of soaking your feet is to keep the water as hot as you can stand for at least 20 minutes. You’ll probably want an extra pair of hands around to send for more water. You can do this as many times a day as you need (I tend towards 2-3 if I’m really bad off.)

If you want you can add essential oils or pour boiling water over eucalyptus leaves and steep it for about 15 minutes for an extra punch.

I’m only recommending this for getting fluid out of the ears, please use this with your own judgement and if you have any questions read my disclaimer. Thanks.

  1. I have an obsession with Q-tips after I shower because I cannot stand for my ears to feel wet. I know they are not good for me but I cannot stop myself.
    I just feel yucky if I don’t do it. Perhaps I have something similar. I will have to get that checked out. What an interesting post. Thank you.
