In Germany they teach ear candling as a remedy. In the U.S. this is a relatively new process to the general public. In many cultures ear candling is the remedy of choice for ear infections, Candida, fungus growth, ear aches, etc. A few holistic doctors in the U.S. have shifted over to ear candling from irrigation techniques.
Candida can cause a mold/yeast allergy which in turn causes itching inside the ear. Parasites can cause many problems if allowed to grow in the ear. "Swimmers Ear" is quite often caused by growth of bacteria etc. in the ear plus ear wax which stops the clearing of water from the ear. Some have also removed fleas from ears.
Ear aches can be caused by mucus blown into the ear from the Eustachian tube. Ear candling will quite often release the pressure and relieve the pain.
The moist warm dark conditions in the ear cause fast growth of many organisms, If excess ear wax blocks the ear it can cause pressure build-up from various organisms.
