I am hoping to get some imput on this. For the past two weeks I have had what feels like something crawling in both ears. It started in the left ear and has now moved to the right also. This is almost constant and very annoying.
Since reading here, I've read about things I would never have dreamed of, ie. worms in out bodies, what precription drugs can do to harm us, but most of all, what we can do to help ourselves become much more healthly.
I will also say that anything to do with "natural, organic, herbal, homopatic is very new to me. I have just started a journey to change my life and health. I have been reading here for awhile, found huge amounts of inforative and educational information. I have always been anti medications, not understanding why, but it just didn't feel right to me. I have taken three mediations, that I felt I needed but have taken myself off all three. I was raised with no concept of what was good or healthly for you and at 57 I feel like I am staring over. My changes thus far are, off the precription drugs, drinking water (and not tap water), stop all diet soda (which I was very addicted to). I have placed an order with a natural herbal company for products that will replace my meds in a much health way.
Sorry for this posting being so long, but I felt by giving a little (ok, maybe a lot) background, it would maybe help with opinion on what is going on with the ear thing.
Just a ps -
Dr.hulda Clark says that Tap Water is great - 'any running source'
Fancy, expensive bottled water could, and probally is, contaminated.

I would agree if the tap water is coming from a well. I am on city/town water, which smells like a dirty lake coming out of the faucet. I also understand it is highly treated. Am I wrong in my thinking?
I agree that a good initial cheap start is using the peroxide.
I would not leave it in so long, though.
Perhaps 2 times a day hold head sidewise
and put about 1/2 cap in one ear.
Let it sit and bubble for about 20 minutes.
Flip to other side and repeat on other ear,
then let the fluid drain,
If you kept your hands totally
immersed in water for several days
they would get overly soggy (waterlogged).
You need to let the ears dry out between treatments.
There are many possible reasons for ear *itchings*
or congestion .
A few being, parasites (very common)
of the microbial sorts esp ...
bacterias, yeast, ear wax,
stagnant fluid trapped in ears
from showering or swimming,
lympth congestion ,
toxins storage and or elimantions
and bad drainage of body fluids
due to congestions
resulting in back up in the ears.
The oxidization treatment of peroxide,
will help in killing off bacterials, yeast,
cleansing of toxic residue from inner ear,
and breaking down wax to a degree.
Some of these things cannot survive
in a higher oxygen environment.
If the problem is due to toxic build up
then you need to address lympth drainage,
and body cleansing.
The ears are often the last resort of excess
The answer is very low cost to deal with.
Liver and kidney flush /cleansing,
lymph draining thru rebounding, dry skin brushing,
colon cleansing (thru colonics, or even colosan ),
good exercise and food ingestion.
Avoid as best you can, getting water in ears
If you sweat,
then do a small bit of peroxide in ears
for a few minutes afterwards,
to help bubble away the toxins that might
have been released in ears as you exercised.
If you feel it is yeast related,
then might consider drinking pau d'arco tea
or getting the herbal extract,
and add a few drops to a drink
4 times a day ,
plus you could make a warm tea,
by boiling water, add herb. remove from heat.
steep for 20 minutes, til tepid.
This is called a decoction .
Take in small doses (like a tablespoon)
thru out the day ,
and put some in each ear as well.
Pau d' arco is very effective against yeast.
There are many suggestions I could give you .
It seemed though you wanted perhaps the lowest cost
way to deal with this?
Some options include :
diluted drops of 85% carvocal oil of oregano, Colloidal Silver , or olive leaf oil diluted.
Before and after using peroxide,
drape a towel around neck , so if you miss,
it won't roll down onto your shirt *8)
Afterwards, wipe lightly with water to get the smell off,
and rub a small bit of oil on edges of ears at night.
to avoid them drying out
thus getting dead skin flakes scales
Thank you Wrenn! I've started with the peroxide. Being a big chicken, I first put some on a q tip to give it a try. ;-) Seems I can handle those strange noises in my ear much better than the "feeling of bugs crawling, so will continue with the application as you suggested.
I do plan a body cleanse, infact recently asked on MH forum for a general outline of what to do and what steps to do them in. I feel like a kindergardener. ;-)
The link below you may find helpful.
It is what I personally do for a liver flush.
Hope that it might give you some extra ideas.
There are many avenues to body cleansing,
I would focus on one area at a time,
and then rest in between to not over stress your body.
As far as the peroxide in ear,
pour in about 1/2 a capful.
You won't get much on a q tip at all,
and also might damage your ears.
Normal grade (3 %) peroxide will not harm them,
unless you have a punctured ear drum ?
(in which case you would have severe ear pain)
