Ear Coning Details
all the tools I offer to people, I think ear coning (or candling as some
call it) is my favorite.
Ear coning goes back to the far recesses of time.
There is a version of coning in use in virtually all aboriginal people.
Evidence of ear coning goes back before the rise of the Egyptians.
As soon as one completes a coning the difference is
evident. Sinus’s drain, pressure is relieved, stuffiness is released. People
with ringing in their ears, various hearing difficulties, ear aches,
swimmers ear, allergies, sinus infections and more find relief in ear
coning. Ear coning is one of the most wonderful de-stressers. I’ve even had
people fall asleep while I was coning them!
Ear coning is not painful and it can bring about
tremendous benefit. Relieving the nerve endings in the ear of all that
excess baggage benefits the immune system and on the metaphysical plane it
acts as an internal smudging or clearing. Ear coning fell from regular use
in the 1920’s when the move was on to make medical practice the only
health care. Though medical science has brought about some wonderful
benefits over time many other things of benefit to us were lost during
that time (how’s that for an understatement?).
tickles me when I find those rare families where a grandmother or great
aunt still cones the family. That’s the way it was back in the day. It was
part of health and hearing care. Remember that every time the ear hears a
sound above a particular decibel level it creates wax. It’s a protection
mechanism that is built in so anyone who works or plays in a loud
environment (musicians, landscapers, factory workers, construction,
printers, or pretty much anyone who is in traffic at any point will
benefit. Also people who work around dust or other crud that can end up in
that open orifice on both sides of our heads. The ear makes wax and that
wax packs on top of the old wax which is packed on the old wax. Coning
helps lift that wax out.
A coning client of mine in Florida has a son who
regularly gets swimmers ear. His pediatrician treated him with a 10 day
drop process if I recall correctly. She chose to cone one of his ears and
treat the other with the drops. After one coning his ear felt fine. She
did continue with the prescribed treatment for the other ear. But wound up
coning him when on completion there was no noticeable improvement. When
she took him in for the next checkup she spoke to the Dr. about the
coning. He told her that he thinks coning is very effective but that it
just was not cost effective for his practice. I was impressed when she
told me this story at the candidness of the Dr. All I have to offer is
anecdotal information. But I have been apart of the process for many, many
people who have received great benefit from coning.
The woman who makes the cones I use tells me that I
shouldn’t focus on the wax. I should focus on the dust that also comes
out. She informs that the dust has the yeast, heavy metals, pollen,
pollution etc. that are straining the immune system. I think the wax is
the cool part. It’s like when you’re a little kid and you see a really
gross bug or something. It can be rather amazing, several times enough
gunk has come out that we could have sculpted a bic lighter!
I do recommend that you have someone like myself
(yes I would love it if you chose me) to cone you for at least the first
time. I'll gladly show you how to cone yourself with a mirror and will
answer any questions that I can. I have done hundreds of conings for
others and quite a few for myself.
It is good to learn how to do it for yourself though
it is much more relaxing to have a practitioner do it for you. That way you
can truly relax and get full benefit from the experience.
The cones I use are made in Sedona and are the best of
several varieties that I have purchased and tried throughout the east.
These cones cost a bit more but are well worth the extra investment. They
are made with 100% bees wax and unbleached muslin. They are also a bit
longer than others that you may find. The process of coning with them is
also slightly different. Yes, you still light the wide end and stick the
narrow end in your ear, but these you clear regularly rather than just
burning al the way at once.
One coning can make a difference but if you have a
long standing problem or just want to make a major difference in your
bodies well being you may find that it takes 7 to 10 conings to completely
clear the canal. This can take place over as long a period of time as you
choose. After the initial clearing you may not choose to cone but once or
twice a year. You will know when is the time because once you’ve felt how
wonderful it is to be clear, you’ll also be aware of when it feels full.
Knowing how to cone yourself can be a great scheduling benefit and can
make a full clearing much more affordable. Though you may still choose to
use myself or another coning assistant for pure relaxing indulgence and

Ear Coning / Candling Testimonial
In February 2011, I was stricken with the flu that was followed with an
ear infection. As an early child, I experienced painful ear infections.
All my life I have battled with respiratory and sinus infections. After
years of antibiotics and home remedies, I decided to research ear
coning. There were a lot of results in my local Google search....some
good and bad. Luckily, I discovered a local woman with a creative flair
and a love for the "alternative". I could just tell from her
website. So I sent The Energy Weaver (Lee Brown) a brief email
explaining my current condition: miserable, stuffed head, clogged ears,
etc. She replied and we met a few days later.
I must say your first
ear coning experience is unlike anything you will ever experience!!
There is no pain, a little awarkdness that is followed by a whole lot of
relief. As a regular "ear coner", now I breath easier, I hear better and
I actually feel lighter as if all that wax was weighing me down! I have
been to the doctor repeatedly only for them to tell me I got a lot of
ear wax buildup. No rinse, no natural remedy or q-tip has ever worked.
But ear coning saved me!
