Eustachian Tube Dysfunction Part 2: Symptoms & Treatment

by EarPopper

First it’s important to understand the normal function of the Eustachian Tube. You can read about that here.

What Prevents the Eustachian Tube from doing its job (Eustachian Tube Dysfunction)?

    • Allergies, sinus infection, and colds (upper respiratory infection) can cause swelling and blockage of the Eustachian tube.
    • Rapid descent in an airplane or when scuba diving can make it difficult for the Eustachian tube to open and regulate pressure.
    • A build up of negative pressure and subsequent accumulation of fluids can make it difficult for the tube to open against this pressure and fluid.

Blocked Eustachian Tube

What symptoms are experienced when the Eustachian Tube doesn’t open properly and negative pressure builds?

  • Pain
  • Hearing Loss
  • Fluid build-up behind the eardrum (Otitis media with effusion)
  • “Plugged ears”
  • Earaches
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness

*An unbalanced middle ear forces pressure on the eardrum which is not only uncomfortable, but also affects hearing. This closed space also cannot drain properly – resulting in fluid build up behind the eardrum.

When you mix a dark, moist, unbalanced middle ear space with the common cold or allergies – you have the perfect breeding ground for an infection.

Eustachian Tube Dysfunction can cause misery to adults and children.

Treatment of Eustachian Tube Dysfunction:
The goal is to open the Eustachian Tube to relieve negative pressure and fluid that affect the middle ear and eardrum.

The EarPopper opens the Eustachian Tube naturally with air and has been proven to eliminate ear pressure issues.

Using the EarPopper is fast, simple and completely safe as proven in numerous clinical studies – including the latest study published in the Ear, Nose & Throat Journal and funded by the National Institutes of Health.

The EarPopper is the alternative to medication or ear tube surgery.
