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.

  2. Renee May says:

    I am a 45 year old Lady that has suffered with Eustachian for many years. I flew in airplanes since I was a little girl and the pain upon decending was horrific. I began noticing problems with my ears when I could no longer hear for a couple of days after a flight. Since about 35, I have had vertigo, so I cannot shoot a 3-point basketball shot anymore, along with hearing loss, pain and forget about trying to blow my nose without plugging up my ears. Without proper healthcare, do have a suggestion on a homeopathic route for me. Much appreciated! My friends have been telling me I keep talking so loud.

Has previously had 5 PETs but would like to discontinue such approach as risking permanent TM perforation but fearful of potential middle ear issues if left unresolved. Slight degree of low frequency loss noted and minimal retraction pocket in TM, however patient denies tinnitus, drainage of the ear and perceived hearing loss. Intermittently reports post nasal drip. No frequent sinus infections, adenoids removed. Please indicate your recommendation to relieve ETD? Thank you!

  8. Kumar vinayak says:

    Revered Sir
    I had a perforation in my right ear since childhood. Now I am 49. Due to recurrent bacterial infection I had two TS patches on the said TM and experienced loud tinnitus 17 months ago. I underwent Tympanoplasty surgery 2 months ago and it was all right upto a month. Now due to imbalance in the middle ear the ear gets clogged and hearing gets worse. While sleeping breathing is normal and hearing is OK and I can speak without difficulties. If I eat or drink something it is OK for a moment. Otherwise with a pop while swallowing saliva or sometimes on its own, the ear getting clogged, I feel sound of wind while breathing and can’t speak. While speaking I feel pain in ear specially while pronouncing NASAL SOUNDS.
    I am disheartened as I am a teacher in a private school.
    God will be with you if you help me. If you advice I can buy medicine from you or from other stores if you please prescribe.
    I thit the EUSTACHIAN TUBE can’t balance the air pressure in the middle ear.
    Awaiting your valuable advice.

  13. Hasvant Sheth says:

    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.

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

  15. 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.

      • Namaste Dr. Sharma. Im 19 years old and I am suffering from ear problems since more than a month now. Last month my eardrum got pushed inwards due to congestion but it was cured with in 2 days. Then after half a month, both of my ears started feeling clogged. Doctor suggested this is happening because of allergies and gave me antibiotics (strong ones). Now 2 weeks after antibiotics, I am again feeling my left ear is little bit clogged, I am getting a lot of cough in throat coming from my ears and I am facing ringing sound in my ears. Please suggest me a solution I really need a permanent solution for this. Thankyou so much.

  16. 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 !!
