OH MY GOODNESS!!! Thank you so much for the extra information included in the email of September 30, 2018. I have had a sinus infection and fluid in my inner ear for 3 months. Took strong antibiotics for 3 weeks, and since then I have been diligent about EATING the veggies to restore my digestive tract and feel very good on that score; but, I can’t hear well in one ear and constantly have that annoying sensation of popping, clicking and pressure shifting that usually is associated with altitude change. I did the Q-tip trick mentioned in your email 5 times in the last 24 hours and my ear feels SO much better: less pressure and I can hear!!! What a huge relief. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS EMAIL, and for getting the word out on our wonderful little bug helpers. Keep it up, girl!!
