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 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 homeopathic medicines for Eustachian tube blockage is 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).

Best Homeopathic Medicines for Eustachian Tube Blockage

1. Kali Mur – Excellent Homeopathic Medicine for Eustachian Tube Blockage Due to Chronic Ear Catarrh

Kali Mur is a highly effective homeopathic treatment for Eustachian tube blockage. Eustachian tube blockage due to chronic catarrh of the middle ear can be handled successfully with homeopathic medicine 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 – Homeopathic Medicine for Eustachian Tube Blockage When Accompanied by a Severe Earache

Pulsatilla is a suitable homeopathic 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 – Homeopathic Medicine for Eustachian Tube Blockage With Marked Dullness of Hearing

Hydrastis is a well indicated homeopathic 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 – Homeopathic Medicine For Eustachian Tube Blockage With Marked Tinnitus

Homeopathic medicine 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 Homeopathic Medicines for Eustachian Tube Blockage

Kali Bichrome and Silicea are other very helpful homeopathic cures for Eustachian tube blockage. Kali Bichrome works well in cases of blocked Eustachian tube from chronic sinusitis. Thick, stringy post nasal 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 – Homeopathic Medicine for Eustachian Tube Blockage When Accompanied by Vertigo and Dizziness

When vertigo accompanies Eustachian tube blockage, then homeopathic medicine 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.

  22. Hello Dr. Sharam,

    I am female, 47 years old, relatively healthy and am suddenly having issues with muffled hearing in the left ear. It is fine for one day then clogged for two days. I do not have allergies or a cold. I have a history of bruxism (clenching teeth at night). Jaw feels sore on the left side and I have a little bit of neck and back stiffness on left side. I do have mild tinnitus in both ears but now the left ear feels pressure and a roaring sound. Worse in the morning when I wake up. No dizziness, pain or vertigo. The left side of my face feels pressure but I do not have a cold. When I bend down and get up, I feel light headed. I’ve tried Sudafed, ibuprofen and allergy pills. I have two young sons that need me. Would you have any recommendations? Do let me know if you require any further information.


  23. Jane Wright says:

    Dear Sir,

    Please tell me how much and how often should I take gelsemium to help clear my eustation tubes and improve my balance.

    Thank you.

  24. I have blocked Eustachian tubes: no discharge, no crackling, no pain, no noises of any kind. I can hear but there is a plugged sensation like you get in an airplane, but I can hear. Sometimes the hearing seems muffled if there is ambient noise, for example, but generally I am able to hear OK. I saw ENT doctor who said there was a buildup of mucus behind my eardrums.
    I have been having what I suppose are allergies – lots of random sneezing and sometimes nose running, itchy nose. Inside my nose is dry and swollen – crusty bleeding in the right nostril as it gets irritated. I have a post nasal drip. Not thick at all.
    I recently had the flu, which affected upper respiratory, had a cough (not a deep one but a rolling one) and I thought the post nasal drip was a remnant from that, but the fullness in the ears started before the actual flu.

  25. Dear Dr. Sharma,
    3 years ago, I had external ear infection because of swimming. I used the ear drops and the fungal infection subsided. Few days after that my lymph node connected with Eustachian tube swelled and I massaged it externally. The lymph node drained and was OK. After that I went to ENT and he said I had refracted ear drum. He gave me antibiotics and asked me to inhale steam twice a day. After medication ,I didn’t have pain in my left ear but always had feeling of fullness in my ear and blocjked Eustachian tube. I hear ringing sounds also while lying on bed.

    Please let me know If there is any homeopathic medicine for such condition.


  26. Akshay Kaul says:


    Since August 6, after a bout of rhinitis in the right nostril (which has a deviated septum) my Eustachian tube of that side got clogged. Perhaps, it was the allergic reaction to an attempt at clean a dysfunctional keyboard from the inside. Gradually, the left ET also got affected.

    Incidentally, it remained open throughout.

    After taking several courses of antibiotics, antihistamines et. al. the right ET improved a bit, but, not entirely. Some days, it seems pretty close to normalcy, and on others, the stuffiness resurfaces. Inhaling steam is now a routine. Forayed into alternative medicine options namely, Homeopathy & Ayurveda, which furthered the wellness a tad.

    However, the sudden relapses of the Right ET problem, still occur. This issue is a bane of my existence, and happens with annual regularity, except in 2015, 2016. I beseech the innate kindness in you to give a lasting solution to my Eustachian tube quandary. I haven’t slept a wink in the last forty days, merely sit through the night in a perpendicular position.

    Dairy products are completely black-listed, and even, lemon, which we drank in the form of tea in the evenings has lost favor. After exerting suction pressure a stringy transparent mucous resembling saliva drops into the mouth. Occasionally, and perhaps, due to the force, an ear stone (otonica) also drops into the mouth.

    However, the Right Et is quite open during the daytime, and post-sunset, it feels clogged, thereby giving me immense claustrophobia and anxiety. In 2012, a similar thing happened which continued for over six months. Back then, Mercurius Dulcis 30 C drained the mucus, instantly.

    In the present scenario, I have tried Kali Mur 6x and Kali sulphuricum 30C drops, but to no avail.

    Please, help me get rid of this Right ET issue.
    God bless you.

  27. Esa Abrahams says:


    I have been suffering with this problem for almost two years and is only now learning what it’s about. I have great trust in the use of homeopathic medication and will use Kali Mur and Gelsemium as my symptoms are more in that line. I do not have pain or any kind of discharge. I only have the vertigo light headedNess and the hissing and funny noises in the right ear only.

    Please tell me if there are any specific dosage that I need to use for my problem.

    Thanks so much, you have already helped by just identifying my problem and where it comes from.

  28. Sue Carey says:

    Dear Dr Sharma

    I have post nasal drip, deafness in my left ear on waking and ringing/high pitched tinnitus. The deafness/sensation of fullnesss came on in June when the pollen count was high. I have no pain, no cough, no sore throat, no runny nose or eyes. PND is worse after drinking cold water or eating chocolate for example or taking supplements. I have stringy saliva and need to clear my throat a fair amount sometimes but not all day. My head feels ‘swimmy’ after using a cordless phone and a mobile phone makes m’y throat hoarse after a while. Which homeopathic remedy would help do you think?

    Kind regards

    Sue Carey
