Ear Cleaning

I (Sal) heard that using Q-Tips or cotton swabs isn't the best, so I did some research...

What's the best way to get rid of ear wax?
By Robert K. Jackler, MD

"June 5, 2000 -- One thing you definitely don't want to do is get rid of all your earwax. Earwax isn't dirt. It's a normal secretion that protects your ear, just the way other kinds of wax protect your car.

If water gets in your ear canal -- while you're swimming or taking a shower, for instance -- earwax will cause the water to bead up and move away from your eardrum. Then the slipperiness of the wax encourages the water to run out of the canal. In addition, earwax is slightly acidic, which discourages bacterial or fungal growth in the moist, dark ear canal. Without earwax, it would be much harder to avoid ear infections."

Also, I've watched the consumers/residents I work with at the group home use hydrogen peroxide

Self Treatment For Earwax
-American Academy of Otolaryngology

Most cases of earwax blockage respond to home treatments used to soften wax if there is no hole in the eardrum. Patients can try placing a few drops of mineral oil, baby oil, glycerin, or commercial ear wax removal drops, such as Debrox®, Mack's® Wax AwayTM, Murine®, or Physicians' ChoiceTM in the ear. These remedies are not as strong as the prescription wax softeners but are effective for many patients. Rarely, people have allergic reactions to commercial preparations. Detergent drops such as hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide may also aid in the removal of wax. Patients should know that rinsing the ear canal with hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) results in oxygen bubbling off and water being left behind-wet, warm ear canals make good incubators for growth of bacteria. Flushing the ear canal with rubbing alcohol displaces the water and dries the canal skin. If alcohol causes severe pain, it suggests the presence of an eardrum perforation."

  • Family Spreads Message Without Being Heard, Just Seen December 7, 2010 11:06 PM By Liz Collin, WCCO-TV

  • " BIG LAKE, Minn. (WCCO) – A Minnesota family is making it much easier for people to understand what’s going on in churches around the world.
    Mark and Lulu Sorenson have spent 15 years taking their message as missionaries to churches across the country and the world.
    “I just thought how many deaf people in the world don’t understand what’s going on in church? It just really made me want to teach deaf people in their own language,” Mark Sorenson said through sign language.
    It’s when all of the Sorenson’s take the stage that an audience will be most moved.
    “When I first met Lulu we talked about how many children she wanted. She wanted two and that was it,” said Mark.
    They had seven children. They’re all unable to hear.
    They go by “The Deaf Von Trapps,” just like — the seven kids from musical, “The Sound of Music".
    "A lot of deaf people think they can’t sing. That only hearing people can sing but I say hey, you have hands. We can express things through our hands,” Lulu said.
    They’ve been in TV shows and movies and lived in Costa Rica, Thailand and Budapest before coming back to Minnesota.
    The basement of their home serves as a classroom for the children. And their mother, Lulu, is their teacher.
    "I just love to see their eyes light up when they learn new things,” she said.
    The family has traveled to Austria to walk the same path the cast of that famous musical once did.
    "It’s a fun challenge. It’s an adventure,” Lulu said.
    They’re not sure what adventure is next. But it’s their message of faith they’ll continue to spread whether at Bible study or on stage — one you don’t need to hear when it’s so easy to see.
    Usually only 10 percent of deaf couples will have deaf children but the Sorenson’s said they both have a gene called Connexin 26 which means all of their children will be deaf.
    Right now, the family is working on a video sign language translation of the Bible they hope to pass out to churches across the country."

    The Healing of a Deaf and Mute Man (Mark 7)

    " 31Then Jesus left the vicinity of Tyre and went through Sidon, down to the Sea of Galilee and into the region of the Decapolis.[i] 32There some people brought to him a man who was deaf and could hardly talk, and they begged him to place his hand on the man.

    33After he took him aside, away from the crowd, Jesus put his fingers into the man's ears. Then he spit and touched the man's tongue. 34He looked up to heaven and with a deep sigh said to him, "Ephphatha!" (which means, "Be opened!" ). 35At this, the man's ears were opened, his tongue was loosened and he began to speak plainly.

    36Jesus commanded them not to tell anyone. But the more he did so, the more they kept talking about it. 37People were overwhelmed with amazement. "He has done everything well," they said. "He even makes the deaf hear and the mute speak."
