Homeopathic Treatment for Eustachian Tube Blockage

The Eustachian tube is a tube about 35mm long that connects the middle ear to the nasopharynx. The function of Eustachian tubes is to equalize the pressure between the middle ear and the surrounding atmosphere. Another function of the Eustachian tube is to drain the mucus from the middle ear. Eustachian tubes may get blocked because of various infections. Homeopathic treatment for Eustachian tube blockage is safe, very effective and has no side effects. homeopathic treatment for eustachian tube blockage

Homeopathy works to correct the underlying cause of the problem. The prominent symptoms in every case need to be ascertained to help decide on the homeopathic treatment for Eustachian tube blockage. Among the top listed medicines for Eustachian tube blockage are Kali Mur, Pulsatilla, Hydrastis, Merc Sol, Kali Bichrome, Silicea, and Gelsemium.

Causes and Symptoms of Eustachian Tube Blockage

Eustachian tubes may get blocked due to various infections. The infections may be those of the ear or upper respiratory tract. Cold, nasal allergies and sinusitis are other reasons for Eustachian tube blockage. The symptoms of Eustachian tube blockage include ear pain, difficulty or dullness in hearing, dizziness, fullness or a plugged sensation in the ear, and noises in the ear(Tinnitus).

Homeopathic Treatment for Eustachian Tube Blockage

1. Kali Mur – For Eustachian Tube Blockage Due to Chronic Ear Catarrh

Kali Mur is a highly effective treatment for Eustachian tube blockage. Eustachian tube blockage due to chronic catarrh of the middle ear can be handled successfully with Kali Mur. In such cases, there is plugged sensation in the ears along with deafness. This sensation is accompanied by snapping and popping sounds in the ear.

2. Pulsatilla – Blockage When Accompanied by a Severe Earache

Pulsatilla is a suitable treatment for Eustachian tube blockage when accompanied by a severe earache. The earache may get worse at night. There is a blockage of the ear with difficulty in hearing. History of ear infection with the discharge of yellow, thick pus are other symptoms indicating the use of Pulsatilla. Other features are noises in the ear like wind or rushing water, and itching deep inside the ears.

3. Hydrastis – Blockage With Marked Dullness of Hearing

Hydrastis is a well-indicated treatment for Eustachian tube blockage where dullness in hearing is a symptom. Thick, offensive, irritating discharge from the ear may also be noted. Another marked symptom is post nasal drip. There is also hawking of thick yellow mucus from the throat.

4. Merc Sol – Blockage With Marked Tinnitus

Merc Sol is mainly useful for blocked Eustachian tubes when tinnitus is prominent. The noises in the ear may be roaring, ringing or whistling in nature. Tearing pain in the ear may also be experienced. Otorrhea with offensive pus, often stained with blood, may be found. Difficulty in hearing gets temporarily better by blowing the nose or after swallowing.

5. Kali Bichrome And Silicea – Other Effective Medicines for Eustachian Tube Blockage

Kali Bichrome and Silicea are other very helpful cures for Eustachian tube blockage. Kali Bichrome works well in cases of blocked Eustachian tube from chronic sinusitis. Thick, stringy postnasal discharge with blocked Eustachian tubes are indicative of using Kali Bichrome. Silicea is to be used in Eustachian tube blockage when a chronic history of pus-filled ear discharge is present. The ear feels blocked, and hissing noises in the ear may also arise.

6. Gelsemium – Blockage When Accompanied by Vertigo and Dizziness

When vertigo accompanies Eustachian tube blockage, then Gelsemium is a good choice. There is catarrh of the ear, earache, deafness and blocked Eustachian tubes. Vertigo, dizziness or a lightheaded feeling also occur in some cases. Vertigo is worse while walking. A sudden head movement may also trigger dizziness.

    Hi Dr Sharma
    Two weeks ago I suffered with a sore throat, which developed into a very heavy cold with brown/yellowish mucus. This impacted my ears and suddenly my ears felt very heavy and blocked. I was prescribed antibiotics for a week as the doctor said I had some fluid and reddish ear drum (infection). I saw the doctor again yesterday and was told the ear was clear. The doctor diagnosed the ear problem as ETD and prescribed a nasal steroid spay and said this a very common problem which will clear by itself.

    This is where I am today but as I believe in homeopathy I would really appreciate if you could kindly let me know the correct remedy for my above described symptoms for the ears.

    Many thanks in advance. Look forward to your reply.

    Regards

  4. Hello, Regarding the Gesemium, how much should I take and for how long?

  5. Matthew Ross says:

    Almost one year of ear congestion. Buzzing sound, frequent ringing, some hearing loss and pressure / slight pain periodically.

    Started last fall with sinus congestion but that cleared up a long time ago.

    ENT measured increase pressure in both ears and Eustachian Tube is the cause. He wants to put in tubes…can you recommend a homeopathic plan?

    • I went to an ENT and I have a diagnosed post nasal drip, chronic sinus infection, and eustachian tube dysfunction. The ear problem started maybe 5 to 6 years ago when I got a really bad head cold or flu and my ears blocked up on me, but it resolved a week or two later when my cold resolved. Almost everytime after that when I got a head cold with sinuses and throat issues my ears would go haywire too, but they would always clear up following the cold. Over the last year or so things have gotten more chronic with my ears. Whenever I drive up and down hill or go fast on the highway, my ears go haywire like i’m almost on an airplane. The altitude changes and pressure in car makes my ears feel pressure and blocked and they don’t equalize properly. In addition to this, over the last month or so it’s becoming more chronic. swallowing affects my ears, drinking, eating, blowing my nose, laughing, yawning. My euchastian tubes are messed up and I never know what’s going to happen next. It’s a scary feeling. Sometimes, I feel a miserable pressure in my head and ears, sometimes they feel blocked and clogged so everything sounds more muffled and not clear, other times I hear a buzzing, ringing, or extra sounds in my ears, and sometimes I am very sensitive to loud sounds. Is there anything I can do to clear out and unplug my eustachian tubes naturally? I don’t even know the root cause of why I have the dysfunction in the first place. The ENT wanted me to go on an antibiotics for my sinus infection and have Pressure equalization tubes put in my eardrum. I don’t want to do that if I can do it naturally. I have been taking a lot of different herbs to try to clear up the sinus infection and I’ve been using a neti pot for over a week now. I’ve been doing hot and cold compresses on my sinuses and gargling with warm salt water and then alternating with cold water. I may have gotten a little relief, but I wish there was a more permanent, lasting solution. Let me know. I really appreciate it. I am a caregiver to my father who had a stroke and my grandmother with dementia. I can’t afford to be sick, because I have too many people depending on me. It doesn’t help when almost everything I hear sounds distorted.

  6. Hi,
    My name is Kirtee. I’m 30 years old.
    I had slight ear congestion due to cough and cold. After 2 days I had to travel via flight which lead to pain and increase in ear congestion.
    ENT specialist explained me the cause of all this is mucus accumulation behind eardrum.
    I have been under medication for 2-3 weeks, it has reduced considerably.
    But the feeling of stuffyness in ear hasn’t gone completely.
    It is 4th week.
    I have been taking Silicea 30 since yesterday, as suggested for a week by my family’s homeopathic doctor. Also, I could see the name of this medicine here for eustachian ear problem.

    Please help me understand how long it takes to go away.

    I’m constantly thinking about it, unable to take my mind off, which in turn is giving rise to anxiety.
    I know it heals on its own and will surely be cured.
    But I’m unable to sleep well, sometimes I cry, and trouble everybody around me.
    Need Help !!

    sir ineed the potency of kali mur,hydrastasis, siliciea

    age 47
    chronic right inner ear problem with hearing loss,crack sounds,blocked eustuchian tube but no discharge

  11. Hello Dr. Sharma,
    I have had ‘chronic’ blockage of my right ear Eustachian tubes for at least 6-9 months. I have tried various methods to try and unclog/drain my ear. I went to see an ENT doc who prescribed Methy1PREDNISolone tablets (Aug 2018), but did not take them. I would much rather terminate this issue by natural methods.
    I have ringing in my right ear as well. I’ve kinda gotten used to it…. sadly, along with hearing loss – only when my Eustachian tube is blocked/ clogged.

    I read that you recommend Hydrastis for blockage with some hearing loss, and Merc Sol is Tinnitus is present.

    Any help / advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you,
    Donna

    Fluid in the ear due to repeated ear infections in a 2 year old child. Person asked about Ferrum Phos and I have not seen an indication for that use.
    Do you have a remedy idea.

  15. I have difficulty with hearing from the right ear when ever I have a cold. The hearing is very faint due to blockage of the Eustachian tube being swollen. Can you tell me what homeopath medicine I should take to bring back the hearing of the right ear. Thanks.

  16. Padmanabhan says:

    Dear Dr. Sharma,
    I am suffering from Eustachian Tube dis function for the past one and half years in the right ear, resulting in blocked ear, feeling of wind rushing out, tinnitus and popping sound while swallowing and loss of sleep due to these problems. I have been taking Kali Muir 12x, 4 pills three times a day continuously for the past one year. There was slight improvement in the first two months from the initial suffering and sleep loss. But there was no further improvement at all. I will be grateful if you can suggest alternative or additional medicines to cure the Eustachian tube dis function once for all.
    Thank you

  17. Crystal Harris says:

    Hi, about 4 months ago I came down with a bad cold and my eustachian tubes got blocked, I also came down with a severe sinus infection from it, I got rid of the sinus infection but my ears are still a bother, they feel full, they pop and crackle, no ringing though, I also have tightness on the sides of my head where my ear are. I started the remedy of Kali Mur and Merc Dulcis, I have been on it for 5 days and it seems to be helping but I am wondering if there is something else I should be taking? Thanks in advance!

  18. Usha ramnani says:

    I have congestion of throat and ears and fluttering sound in the ears and can even hear heart beats which is very annoying. My homeopath says it is post nasal drop. I am doing steaming.

  19. I am 73 years old, from Chennai , TN. I & my family have been having Homoeopathic medicines for the past 40 years.
    I have been having a lot of mucus forming in my throat over the night & cleared in the mornings on rising.
    It started as white but has recently turned thick & yellow. due to this I have been having ETD &my left ear gets blocked at different times of the day. It does open after lunch & dinner after a hot meal with a lot of chewing. It closes again after the meal & I have to chew on some cashew nuts to clear the block. Sometimes the block refuses to open particularly if I am stressed or worried. I also have buzzing in both ears. Both these symptoms started in March 2018. I saw a solution given by Dr.Santosh Kumar Padhy, where he suggested Kali Mur 30 twice a day for 7 days followed by two doses of same of 200 potency. I have completed that but the blockage continues. I get cold sweat very depressed whenever this happens.
    The above doctor has not given any contact address & doctors here have no answer.
    Kindly advise.

  28. Hi dr. Sharma,
    would appreciate any advise. My ears (eustachian tubes) have been blocked for almost 2 months following a sinus infection in january and a mild flu at begining of february. MY ears (left mostly) feels blocked, can’t pop my ears at all, fullness and pressure which I feel in my head also and lightheadness/dizziness. there was also hearing loss 3 weeks ago which slightly improved. Specialist said there is not fluid behind ears, no infection anymore in sinuses/ears. but my ears won’t open or equalize the pressure and feeling is horrible. no tinitus or ache. i am 36 old womanwith no history of allergies, sinus infections or ear problems. steam, prescription drugs, valsalva maneuver don’t work.
    Been taking Mercurius dulcis 6x and kali muraticum 6x twice per day for 10 days. ears still blocked with fullness/presure although feel better some days.
    should i stop kali muraticum and try gelsemium. also have pulsatilla and Kali sulph at home but never took those.
    Please. Could you be so kind and give me some advice. i am desperate.
    Thank you so much

      • Vicki Lucas says:

        Dr Sharma…I have been dealing with plugged left ear for a year and a half. I’ve seen an ENT who prescribed oral steroids which helped but I was only able to take short term. It got a little better after that so he gave me a steroid shit in my eardrum which helped with that blocked feeling.He then said I just needef hearing aides. Against my better judgement I tried them but they didn’t help at all. I just recently went to snother ENT who said it was eustachian tube issues & norhing could be done. I also got an MRI of the brain to rule out any other issues that may be the cause. It showed no problems. I have chronic allergies, post nasal drip. This all started with a simple cold. Could you please advise me on this matter?
