candidiasis/ear tubing

Posted by Greg on August 03, 2000 at 18:01:38:

Dr. Stoll,

I am a 21 year old male that was on a course of intensive antibiotic therapy involving Minocycline for appx. 2.5 years. I was taking it for acute acne, and only discontinued using the drug due to several months worth of illness. It has now been one month since I've been off the drug and 1.5 weeks since I've cleaned up my diet, and I cannot begin to tell you how much better I feel. My acne has not resumed and I am supplementing myself with herbs to keep a healthy body balance. However, there is still a lingering feeling of congestion located in my ear canals and offshooting into my throat area. The question I have is if receiving ear tubes from my ENT would help diffuse the problem. I realize that the diet is integral and I will DEFINITELY continue to discipline myself in that arena. However, I am a singer/vocalist and need complete passage throughout my upper body cavity, henceforth the question regarding ear tubes. What do you think about this issue? I would ABSOLUTELY appreciate if you could shed even a bit of light.

Hi Greg:

I think Dr. Stoll had said to someone before that this wasn't the best solution but other approaches were. Below I've linked you to some archives to read.

Several months ago I purchased an exercise rebounder (a mini-trampoline) after reading about them on this site (you can input rebounder in search feature and find out how to get a good one). I did it for the exercise and lymph clearing but I was very surprised at the added benefit I got - my hearing got better. Congestion in one of my ears cleared and it was quite drastic the improvement. I went looking in the book I'd gotten on this type of exercise and viola!; it wasn't just my imagination.

Recently on this board some disturbing things have come to light about the antibiotic you were on so I'm very glad that you've discontinued it. I hope you'll find a less traumatic way to deal with your lingering congestion. Good luck.

June

Hi June
COuld you please tell us anything else about your good experience with the rebounder ? I mean, did it help congestion in the sinus cavaties at all ? Were there other benefits ? Do you sort of run in place on it ?
thank you

Hi, Greg.

Congratulations on your progress.

Candidiasis might be aggravating this problem with your ears but MY guess is that it will be a lot simpler to resolve this problem with your ears than if you have to deal with C-RS.

Try a month of TOTALLY eliminating dairy and wheat. Remember that the slightest trace of either will obviate the test. THEN, when your ears are much better in a month, you will need to decide if you are willing to prove the connection by trying either of them again.

If you are clear AND stay clear for 6 months, of elimination of these commonly causal agents, THEN is the time to test both of them ALONE to see if you have a flareup.

Let us know what happens.

If this works (about an 80% chance at your age), you have to have had LGS for years and you will have to eventually deal with that.

Walt
