Ear infections can be nasty but I’ll show you how I overcame this problem and what you can do.
The year was 2005. I was standing in the middle of Oxford Street in central London and could not hear a thing. It felt bizarre seeing lots of people around me yet hearing next to nothing.
My temporary deafness was caused by an ear infection.
I used to get ear infections quite frequently, twice a year at times. Occasionally they lasted for months, making my job as a DJ virtually impossible.
I recall playing Fabric nightclub in London on one occasion, and hearing only the resonance of the kick drum playing through the speakers. This was the only way I could beat match, I couldn’t hear the rest of the record! Producing music was also out of the question.
As you can imagine, ear infections made me feel pretty depressed.
After switching to a raw food diet, my ear infections stopped completely. I haven’t had a single ear problem since 2006.
Multiple studies have shown that insufficient levels of minerals in the body are among the causes that result in hearing problems.
1 – My main advice is to eat a diet (or the closest you can get to one) of raw and fresh, plant-based whole foods, and avoid eating processed and refined foods which deplete your body of minerals and nutrients.
Moreover, deficiencies of minerals in your diet impair your body’s ability to absorb important vitamins, which contribute to your hearing health.
2 – As well as changing my diet, I did something else; I started wearing ear plugs when I showered.
This simple practice contributes greatly to keeping your ear canals clean, and helps avoid complications, especially when taking more than one shower a day.
I use surfing ear plugs; they are effective, cheap and last a long time.
You can get a decent pair at Amazon for around $10. They are worth it.
Use them everytime you shower and you’ll see the difference.
