Ear Health

Ear infections are painful and often recurrent in childhood, although they can occur at any stage of life.  There are two distinct types of ear infections: otitis media which is a middle ear infection and is most common in childhood, and otitis externa, which is also known as swimmer’s ear.  Middle ear infections are most commonly caused by viral or bacterial infections and allergies, most commonly to milk.  In children the Eustachian tube is still developing and is often in a more horizontal rather than vertical position, preventing fluid from draining fluid around the middle ear efficiently.  Swimmer’s ear results when water or other substances get trapped in the ear canal and provide a breeding ground for bacteria. + Read more >

 While ear infections are often treated with antibiotics, there are natural ear health supplements that can support the immune system and reduce inflammation to help prevent ear infections.  A good multivitamin supplement is an important part of boosting the immune system.  This is a vital ear health supplement as many children can be picky eaters and they are exposed to numerous viruses through the course of their day at school, daycare or at extra-curricular activities.  Another important ear health supplement is an Omega-3 essential fatty acid, ideally flax seed oil for children or a fish oil supplement for adults.  Omega-3 essential fatty acids play an important role in reducing inflammation in the body and can help to reduce the inflammation in the ear canal.  To help reduce the recurrence of ear infections, it is important to address food allergies or sensitivities, particularly to dairy as this can increase mucous production in addition to being an allergen.  For adults who are troubled with ear infections, adding immune boosting supplements such as Garlic, Oil of Oregano, Echinacea and Vitamin C can help to prevent recurrences.  Although ear infections can occur in adults, tinnitus is more likely to be an ear health concern as a result of age-related hearing loss, a circulatory system disorder or an ear injury.  The constant ringing in the ears that is typical of tinnitus can be very frustrating and distracting to live with, especially as it is often portrayed as something you will just have to live with.  This is not always the case and ear health supplements that help to address the underlying condition can reduce and sometimes even stop this annoying symptom.  Studies have shown that for people with tinnitus who have an underlying zinc deficiency, using a zinc supplement can clinically reduce the loudness of the ringing in the ears.  Gingko Biloba contains powerful antioxidants which can help to improve blood flow and nerve function in people with circulatory disorders.  As an ear health supplement this can be beneficial if you have a circulatory disorder that may be contributing to the tinnitus.  A high quality Vitamin B complex should also be included in a daily supplement routine as the B vitamins are essential for nervous system functioning and studies have shown that many patients with tinnitus are also deficient in Vitamin B.  Body Energy Club’s online vitamin store makes it easy to boost your immune, circulation and nervous system with vitamins and supplements at Canada’s best online prices.  Before starting any new supplements it is important to check with your doctor to make sure that they are right for you, especially if you have a medical condition or are taking prescription medications.+ Read less >
