[seek] ear candleling treatment [Basel/Zurich]

I am hoping there are some people out there that have had this done. I have for 10 years been using Asian ear candles twice a year to remove excess wax and water from my ears. They are the best thing for this. Does anyone out there know of an Asian market where I can buy these? I live in Basel but also am going to Zurich on Thursday so could pick them up there. Thanks for any info I can get.

Re: [seek] ear candleling treatment [Basel/Zurich]

I was looking through a magazine today and found a Swiss website that had what I have been looking for for almost a year. Ear Candles(ohrenkerze) in German. www.equilibrium.ch I will be happy and healthy as soon as they arrive. This are great to do 2 or 3 times a yera for people who travel alot, swim, etc. Just great for good sinus health also.

Re: [seek] ear candleling treatment [Basel/Zurich]

For of those wondering what ear candling is: Wikipedia reference-linkhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ear_candle. Most official medical organizations warn against the use of ear candles. I for one would never put a burning candle with wax pouring out of it in one of my most sensitive organs, it just doesn't make sense. I would not be surprised that all proponents of the procedure are experiencing a placebo effect instead of actually "improving" their ear canal.

Re: [seek] ear candleling treatment [Basel/Zurich]

I was given a couple years ago to try and was sceptical to begin with. I found the effect quite amazing and have been looking out for them since (allbeit not intensively). If you're a reasonably sensible, sane and sober person I think they are quite safe to use. Safer than sticking ear buddies into your ears, I would imagine.
