No no nono nonononono.
Go get those hippy things you burn in your ears to get rid of it, dude... go to like, Neils Yard and speak to some peeps in tye die..
my friend does those. LOADS of gunk comes out, it's 'orrible...yet quite tasty
I clean my ears on a regular basis.
it's the wax from the candle that you see inside. If they were actually creating a powerful enough vacuum to suck wax out of you eardrum it would be dangerous.
but *some* of it is the gunk from your ears
do you mean just on the end bit that you stick in? That would make sense
I only know what my friend, who is trained to do this, has told me
and compare it to one that you or he has used. Better still, get someone who doesn't know which is which to compare them and see which has the most wax in. Even better get a number of people who don't know which is which to compare them.
Alternatively, don't bother with any of this.
Basically, I don't think ear candling does anything to your earwax, and it can be dangerous.
Do you NEVER clean them?!
a big clump of it. I think it was probably because he was pushing the wax into his ear rather than cleaning out of it as it were.
yes. once or twice
its a weird sensation
this is liek...tiny little balls of it
and quite rarely..It's like they hide from the cleaning then realise they're lonely and have no friends so jump to their demise
Hey Ali Bastian's in The Bill
So is little Louisa Lytton.
Rarely though, ears are self-cleaning and all that. It's a natural process.
this has never happened to me but it sounds fucking incredible. i want to get my ears syringed SO much.
it's really fucking bad for you.
it sounds like it's really good if you've got a build up of wax and i think i do...
why don't they do it much these days aldo?
any adverse immediate effects, but it causes the wax to build up more quickly, and you have to have it done more and more often. the body is very great at self-repair, until humans start fucking with things they don't need to. see also: antibiotics for really minor things that clear up on their own after time. give you short-term relief but weaken the immune system meaning you're more susceptible to catching the damn thing you were trying to get rid of in the first place.
