The Science of Ear Rings

Although women in Western world today may not know it, wearing earrings is not limited to fashion and accessorizing.

Earrings actually have a very beneficial function. Wearing earrings has an acupuncture-effect on the body. In ancient China, earrings developed for health purposes rather than female embellishment purposes, stemming from the result of acupuncture of the ear.

The father of Western medicine, Hippocrates, wrote about ear piercing and earring wearing around 470 B.C. as a remedy and treatment for menstrual problems. Galen also wrote about the same thing. In ancient times, if there was a deficiency in energy or chi, gold earrings would be placed in a pierced acu-point for stimulation. Silver earrings were used if there was excessive energy.

Gemstones were added for their therapeutic effects. A ruby was used to regulate menstruation and to enhance fertility. An emerald was worn to prevent miscarriage and to aid in childbirth. Citrine was worn to boost sexual energy. These benefits were then transmitted through the gold or silver.

In modern times, the traditional point for ear piercing is in the middle of the fleshy lobe. This part of the ear is the intuitive, Third Eye, or psychic point. It is very important that only gold, and not silver, be worn here on the ear lobe. Gold, combined with an amethyst or emerald (which are both traditionally regarded as very spiritual stones), will have an added positive effect on the function of intuition.

Ancient people treated diseases of feminine Yin organs via earrings in the left ear and diseases of the male Yang organs via the right ear. The left side of the body is the feminine side and the right side of the body is masculine.

The belly button is the seat of eroticism and sexual passion. It arouses sexual passion. This is why most belly dancers have their belly buttons pierced. Belly dancing is a form of dancing that arouses sexual desire in men. It is very erotic and highly sensual, though friendly and innocent in nature.

The modern day piercing of the tongue, eyebrows, and nipples is simply a fad that some believe helps express their individuality and rebelliousness.

In the 70s and 80s, men started piercing single ear lobes to sport a stud or a burned broomstick straw in the ear lobe. But today, it is very common for males to have both ears pierced. In Biblical lore, a man who voluntarily gave up his freedom to remain a slave had to have an aul driven through his ear as a sign that he was a willful slave.

Some parents decide to pierce their daughter’s ears when she is an infant. This is potentially dangerous, as the baby’s immune system is still strengthening and the act of piercing can introduce bacteria into the baby’s bloodstream. It’s also an issue of choice. When the child matures into legal age, if they want their ears pierced, they can make that decision for themselves. Children don’t need balancing as adults do, so this reason for piercing is nullified.

For those readers who presently have your ear(s) pierced, take care of your ears. Do not use alcohol on your ears. Use hydrogen peroxide or Australian tea tree oil. Soak your earrings or stud overnight in a solution of water and either hydrogen peroxide or tea tree oil. Make sure to clean your ears weekly. Serious infection can result in unsightly keloid tumors. Also, don’t wear gold-plated earrings. Wear only 100% gold, silver, or copper earrings.

    Q: I just read your article on, The Science of Ear Rings and loved it, as I love all articles on Dherb! But, am now wondering if I should remove the nose ring that I wear. I pierced it myself, but it's on the right side of my nose, and the hoop is silver. What sort of energetic effects has this decision had on me?

    A:

    Thank you for your complimentary words regarding our articles. Much appreciated! I think you should switch up wearing gold, and silver nose ring on your right nose for purposes of balance. What type of energetic effects it has had on you? Well, I wouldn't know specifically, only you would know the answer to this as you know how you feel day in and day out.

    Q: The problem is the nerves from my brain to my ears. They are clogged. And as a result the sound doesnt reach from my ears to my brian.

    A:

    Unfortunately, I never heard of this issue. I would suggest ear candling or coning and working on your nerves, (taking Nerves Formula [3 capsules daily] and Nerves Tea [1 cup nightly], and CNS Formula [3 capsules daily]). I'll have to research more into this condition. But there is always something you can do. Peace and Love!

    Q: My question is a 2 part question. My daughter has Trisomy 21 and has tubes in her ears. Her ear canals are very small and her ears are normally developed. She is 18 months old and I was wondering if it would be okay to do Ear Coning and would this affect the ear tubes? The second question is what causes the tonsils to enlarge (cold/infection)? Is there a product that can be used so that she can keep her tonsils?

    A:

    It's too early to perform ear coning on her (unless you can find very small cones). Wait till age 2. Give her ear drops! Enlarged tonsils are inflamed due to mucus buildup. Product or no product, you never allow anyone to remove what God gave the body. However, there are many products. Give our MUCUS BUSTER TEAa try. Put it in a bottle and give to the child. You can sweeten it a little with maple syrup.

    Q: SOMETHING YOU SAID PERKED MY EARS. I JUST GOT THE KYK940 IONIZER. THEY RECOMMEND 8.5 STARTING OFF, AND 9.5 ON A REGULAR BASIS, EXCEPT WHEN CLEANSING. NOW, ARE YOU SAYING I CAN'T GET BENEFITS UNLESS I DRINK A PH OF 14? BECAUSE IN THE BODY THE ACID WILL BRING IT DOWN TO ABOUT 8. ON THE CD I GOT WITH THE UNIT, 9.5 WAS PH OF THE WATER IN LOURDES, FRANCE THAT PEOPLE DRINK THAT LIVE A LONG TIME. I BELIEVE THERE IS ONLY ONE CAUSE FOR DISEASE, OVER ACIDITY OF THE BODY. CAN I GET BENEFITS FROM 9.5 ?

    A:

    You misunderstand what I was talking about, Beloved. I was talking about "my" machine! Any water with a pH of 9.5 is going to raise your pH levels - GUARANTEED! You have a good unit and will benefit greatly from it! Drink high alkaline water (9.5 pH), as much as possible!

    Q: In one of your articles I read on re-building the male reproductive system, you mentioned that a combination of monoatomic gold, MSM sulfur, Zinc, Jackrabbit herbs and others can be used in concert (along with balanced intentions) to do so. I just noticed you have Khemetian Gold. Can this be used in substitute of Monoatomic? Thanks. I love the information; I am learning a great deal and will soon order some things.

    A:

    KHEMETIAN GOLD is NOT mono-atomic gold (MAG). Read the ingredients of the product and you will see it does not contain mono-atomic gold but humic and fulvic acid, different substances altogether from MAG. Therefore, Beloved, I wouldn't suggest a substitution. Glad you enjoy all the information! Thank you for your interest in Dherbs.com!

    Q: Thank you for the cancer info...It is welcome and beyond informative, however, I take issue with your remark that "women would be wise to just accept the fact that they are female by nature and God made them to have (deliver) babies and they should stop trying to compete with and be like men." Part of me is not surprised--men make comments like this all the time. I chalk it up to ignorance, as men enjoy living their entire lives not having to endure periods, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and lord knows what else. So because a woman does not want to have children--at all, or at a particular time in her life--she wants to be a man?! That's an illogical conclusion you are making. So why are there pregnant women with cancer, some of which who have never taken BC pills? Are women entitled to making any sort of control over their reproductive health? What about women who are infertile, naturally? If they develop cancer, is it because they never gave birth to a child? Are you willing to support all of the children that will result from women not being on Birth Control, since many people cannot afford several children on their incomes? This line of reasoning makes some women think that men really need to get over themselves. I think you have been reading too much Freud. Some women, present company included, appreciate our femininity and everything that encompasses being a woman. At the same time, this is not the dark ages--and even then, women chose not to have children during different times in their lives. Surely you are aware that in non-Western countries women utilize natural herbs to control their reproduction or as abortifacients? I am not advocating abortion; my point is that if you are going to criticize women taking BC pills, you may as well extend this criticism to women naturally preventing pregnancy via alternative means.

    A:

    Birth control pills play a big role in female reproductive cancers. Women would be wise to just accept the fact that they are female by nature and God made them to have (deliver) babies and they should stop trying to compete with and be like men. In attempting to stop or prevent life (birth control), they are ending up losing their very own lives. And the birth control pills cause cancer in areas of the body that denote femininity (breasts, ovaries, fallopian tubes, cervix, uterus and vagina). This is a form of language here. You have disease and female organ(s) which basically means your disease is specifically related to an issue of femaleness or femininity, that's why the disease manifests in these "female" organs. In attempting to be like and compete with males, females compromise their feminine integrity and goddess nature which "eats them up" (anger, frustration, sadness, etc.) inside. When the cancer appears in any female organ, it serves as a sign or sensor that the problem lies on a deeper metaphysical level pertaining to emotions, thoughts and attitude."

    Q: I have a question? I am hearing a loud cricket like song in my ears what can I use to stop it, my doctor told me there is no cure. Someone told me to use warm garlic oil, it drives me crazy at nights and all day I can hear it, hoping to hear from you soon.

    A:

    Sounds like an acute or heightened form of tinnitus.

    Try getting your ears coned a couple of times. Ear candling is very helpful in ear disorders.

    Also, give our eardrops a try. Pretty potent formula.

    And what you really need to do is detoxify your body.

    Metaphysically, ear disorders mean you are failing to "hear" something you need to hear or refusing to listen to so your ears are getting your attention so that you may tune in!

    Q: I just ordered ear oil for my 2 year old daughter. She is experiencing temporary hearing loss. We were told by the physician that it could be partly due to wax build up in her in one ear and the pressure in the middle ear of both ears are slightly higher than what it is suppose to be. What would you suggest as a remedy to this problem?

    A:

    Get her ears "candled" or "coned" (see "EAR PROBLEMS"article on our site). It's the best procedure for removing excess ear wax buildup - guaranteed!

    Q: I wanted to touch base with you and let you know that I took yourTOTAL MALE CLEANSE about 2 months ago. Unfortunately, I did not really receive any health benefits from this session and my problem persists. My problem comes from excessive masturbation--excessive ejaculation. I have burning in my stomach, side, groin area, and testicles. This has been going on for over 4 years. It has gotten better but I am in not even close to being able to have sexual relations with a women. My testicles feel week and tingly most days. When I should be "getting excited" I feel tingling in my abdomen and side. I have tried a remedy from Dr. Lin's herbal supplements and this didn't give any substantial change. Do have any further suggestion?

    A:

    I CAN CLEARLY UNDERSTAND WHY YOU DIDN'T RECEIVE THE BENEFITS YOU WERE SEEKING WITH THE TOTAL MALE CLEANSE. YOU SEE, YOUR PROBLEM IS PSYCHOSOMATIC BUT MOSTLY PSYCHOLOGICAL AND EMOTIONAL IN NATURE. IT APPEARS YOU HAVE A 2ND CHAKRA IMBALANCE THAT NEEDS ADDRESSING. MOST OF THE WORK YOU REQUIRE IS ENERGETIC. HOWEVER, PERIODIC PERFORMANCE OF THE FULL BODY DETOX AND TOTAL MALE CLEANSE AND HEALTHY DIET HELPS REPAIR THE PHYSICAL DAMAGE FROM EXCESS MASTURBATION. I HIGHLY AND URGENTLY RECOMMEND YOU SCHEDULE A PERSONAL CONSULTATION SO WE CAN GET TO THE ROOT OF THIS PROBLEM. YOUR REMEDY IS NOT SOLELY IN A PRODUCT, BUT IN YOURSELF!

    Q: I know you are an herbalist and I have read your articles on relationships, but I really need to discuss an issue with a conscious person like yourself. I have a friend who is a conscious brother, he made it known that he doesn't want to be in a relationship, claims he's to busy, but he is into having a spiritual sexual relationship(releasing energy he says on a spiritual level). My thought is that in order to connect with someone totally on a sexual level they should be a unit to experience this sacred sexual experience he refers to, otherwise to me it seems a very clever why to have sex without the commitment of being in a relationship. I would really appreciate your thoughts.

    A:

    Dudes can be so clever! He sounds like a Taurus! LOL!

    He's using spirituality to justify having sex with you. There's no spirituality with a casual sex partner. This practice is deep and creates serious energetic connections via the chakras. There's no connection without being a unit and having a commitment. My motto is: no sex absent love and commitment (unless both parties agree)! Hope this helps you out!

    Q: Good Day to you. July 07, I was diagnosed with having the auto-immune disease Myasthenia Gravis. Since then I have had several hospital stays, including a surgery to remove my Thymus Gland...(beleif that this was one cause)and taking many medications, one of which suppresses my immune system, the others include steroids which have terrible side effects...etc. My latest hospital stay, I was placed on the vent and intubated, because of the Myasthenia and an infection that my body couldn't fight off (suppressed immune system) that further complicated the MG restricting my respiratory system. That was a truly scary and painful experience. I am only 32 and I have been searching for a more natural approach to eradicating this Dis-Ease of the body which they say there is no cure. My thoughts are, they are not looking for cures...if they did, that would mean the pharmaceutical companies no longer have reason to continue to poison and make dependent on them those whom they make the medications...which eventually cause other problems...meaning they don't make money if cures are found. The continuous pill taking and side effects are causing more problems than the original diagnosis. Please let me know if any of your products are a possible answer to my prayers. I am desperately seeking...in addition to keeping the faith and staying strong in prayer, a more natural approach to dealing with MG and taking care of my body, the temple of which the creator has kept alive in spite of this potentially dangerous ailment. Thank you in advance for your time.

    A:

    You didn't have to have your thymus gland removed. This gland is the seat of the immune system so the doctors removed your natural defense and then gave you toxins which are really exacerbating your situation. I recommend that you perform the FULL BODY DETOX and after performing, take a daily regimen of RAINFOREST TONIC, IMMUNE BOOSTER EXTRACT, KHEMETIAN GOLD, ACTIVATED CHARCOAL and ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD. You can overcome your present health crisis! Just stay strong, focused (on your healing), and POSITIVE! Every problem including with health is an opportunity!!!!!!

    Q: I have a question for you. Do you have any formula for this? This is for a friend of mines. He is 48 and has serious and at times debilitating meniers/tinitus. He loses balance, becomes ferociously nauseous, dizzy and cant stand etc.....he has to simply lay miserably in the floor until it passes. This sometimes is hours...sometimes it is days before he is near normal. He is kinda new at this alternative stuff but he is desperate because the "Docs" want to operate on both his ears with an 80% chance of deafness....no other alternative or treatment offered other than...."live with it or get under the knife"

    A:

    He needs to perform the Full Body Detox first and foremost. He needs to do a series (6 or more) of ear coning

    .

    After the FBD, he should take our BRAIN TUNER formula. I also recommend he takes Oxy-Drops (30 drops per glass of water).

    He needs to listen to that spiritual message coming from on high that he is ignoring. Let him who have ears (spiritual ears) to hear, hear!

    Q: Thank you so much for doing all that you do. I wish that you were in my everyday life...If I ever come to Cali, I hope to be able to take you up on some of your services. I have given your site out to many people that cross my paths...most recently, a man with diabetes who is going blind. He seemed to be quite thankful for your info...I do hope that he contacts you...and my friend who perhaps has a problem with a parasite(s). But me....okay just waiting for tax refund and then I will hit you up for another full-body detox...and perhaps a parasite kit myself...as it is sad but true..with my current boyfriend careless but kind...I now have a problem with genital herpes...a small breakout every other month...I eat well for the most part...ofcourse it could be better. But the stress is hish...I am working on that. But my question is...would an air purifier do me any good? You see I live in Dundalk, Maryland...near baltimore...near a Steel plant, and a yeast plant, and close to the military practice bombing sites, and other military negative stuff, and the city polluted with car pollution, tons of light pollution, and they spray for mosquitos...then I go to work and I work at a place called ABC Supply...great place right, well the stress is high, and the building we work in is shot...I swear there is mold under the carpets in one of the rooms...the ceiling is constantly leaking and we don't know what from...and the fumes from forklifts and the asphalt from the shingles...the filterfrom the intake gets changed like once a year...but is filled with 'shit' probably in a day or week. So the answer is to get a new job and move...yeah I know...I just don’t know how to do it...or where to go. Since I moved here, I have a problem with my ears...filling up with water or histimine or whatever...usually if I don't drink enough water near my menstrual cycle...I went to a doctor once and basically walked out of the office telling him what to do for his cold...yasee..he was no help...I knew more than him already....these past two years have been bad for allergies. Now, my ears and my throat...my nose too...though I do clean it out with water and that helps. I am not the only one. In the past two years there is a great number of people who say the same thing...they have never had a problem with allergies until these past two years. My grandmother and next door neighbor are two..but many more...well they just started up that steel mill again probably about that time...they sprayed hard core for mosquitos right before my grandmother started having problems...global warming for one...and i dont' know..but two years ago I was involved with a group of people sending out petitions against an LNG liquid natural gas plant that would bring in a ship two times the size of a football field and a huge pipe line to pennsylvania, and a skyscraper of a building to store the gas. Well...we fought against it...but apparently the gas company has more say than our own local government...I don't know...but hear about it every once in a while that they are still trying to get it built. So, an air purifier?? what do you think? Much Love and Health and Thanks!! Peace, RESPONSE: Thank you so very much for your words, Beloved. Much obliged from the heart!

    A:

    In regards to your question: Oh yes! By all means purchase an air purifier or an ozone machine (which will actually be best or better for you). Make sure you detox (FULL BODY DETOX) periodically, consume ACTIVATED CHARCOAL, and take plenty of IODINE PHOSPHATE as sea weed is great for neutralizing the effects of radiation.

    Q: Hello I have been taking the fibroid cleanse for 11 days now i am also doing the Strick Vegan diet. within the 11 days i got my period but did not notice any difference still had a heavy flow & cramps. after my period was gone about 4days later ( and this actual moment) i have been having sudden but yet quick piercing pain on the right side of my abdomen. ( i dont know what that means) questions: 1. should i be feeling any kind of cramping feeling on my abdomen? 2. should i have been still having a heavy flow? 3. can i continue w/the fibroid cleanse after the 20 days? 4. how soon should i go see my GYN doctor for an ultra sound, MRI or cat scan to see if there has been a change? Thank you in advance.

    A:

    The symptoms associated with the breaking down of the tumor can vary as everyone’s body is different. Some people experience heavier or lighter menses, cramps, increase in discharge or no symptoms at all. You should continue with the cleanse until it’s over and perform some of the natural remedies listed in the book, especially the castor oil packs. The same amount of time it took for the tumor to develop should be considered for the breaking down of the fibroid. You can repeat the cleanse or continue with the Fibroid Formula depending on the size of the fibroids. We suggest giving your body a chance to process the changes, getting an ultra sound only monitors the size of the tumor. The diet that you should be following is raw vegan. It’s important for your body to benefit from the foods within the diet. Cooking foods takes out the nutrients and enzymes that are beneficial to our bodies, so eating food in it’s most natural state is best.

    Q: My six year old was just seen by the ENT today, I was told that his hearing loss is getting worse and that he needs tubes to be put in his ears. He has also had several cases of strep throat, so the ENT is wanting to remove his tonsils as well. He is scheduling the surgery for three weeks away, and I was just wondering if there is an alternative to have the surgeries? Please write me back and let me know your feelings on the matter. I'm concerned about him being put under. I really don't want it to be done, unless it's absolutely necessary. Thank you

    A:

    I'm never pro surgery until everything natural has been done! First, experiment with an improved diet. Read our "Ear Problems" article for starters. Make sure to get a few ear coning sessions done.

    Q: First of all hello and thank you for the FULL BODY DETOX. I completed the full detox August 5, 08 and found it extremely beneficial, again, thank you. Please let me know your opinion regarding the "Abgone" Extra Strength pill that reportedly promotes pot belly loss (the one issue I continue to confront). I exercise, I do yoga and I jog four times weekly 3 miles. Never the less I still have a "pot belly". I contacted "Biotech Research" and was advised that this is an all natural product. The ingredients are said to be Vitamin C, Zinc, Chromium Polynitic, Phofphatidylserine, Clabcaa, Dandelion Powder, 99% Caffeine, Green Tea Extract, The capsule is made of soybean, beeswax, gelatin, glycerin and red dye #40. Please respond at your earliest convenience.

    A:

    That product ABGONE is crap due to the ingredients. No product is your solution, but the mind (thoughts, attitude), diet, lifestyle, etc. Stop worrying about the pot belly and focus on your desired state. Only see your results in your mind and you will attract the results on the material plane. Please read through some of our articles, beloved!
