Ear problems are characterised by situations which create a damp, swampy environment that can become a hot bed for bacterial growth.
Wax produced from an imbalanced constitution or from cleansing toxins exacerbates the “swampy” environment.
How to break this chronic cycle? The answer from Traditional Chinese Medicine is to take away the environment that supports the dampness.
Along with diet this formula accomplishes this by draining damp heat (the swamp). Formula uses drying and cooling herbs such as gardenia, gentiana, and scutellaria which targets “damp heat” in the upper torso.
