For years my wife and daughters have harped on me about my hearing or more accurately my inability to hear them, or at times the TV or anything else for that matter. And for years I maintained that "there's nothing wrong with my hearing". But, of course I knew differently. Exposure to prolonged artillery fire while in the service had left me with a slight hearing deficit and a permanent ringing in my ears (tinnitus). In recent years though I have noticed that my hearing has become a bit worse. I mentioned it to a friend and he asked if I had ever had a thorough ear wax cleaning. I hadn't. In fact, I thought he was joking; but he swore he was serious. He said that his hearing was improved by a thorough cleaning every couple of years. I had to wonder how much mine would improve with a thorough cleaning after more years than I care to admit to. When I discussed it with my family doctor he recommended I try Physician's Choice Ear Wax Removal System before going to an ENT physician for a professional procedure. **What is it?** The **Physician's Choice Ear Wax Removal System** consists of ear drops (carbamide peroxide), silicone ear putty plugs, a bulb syringe and a small water well. The system is surprisingly easy to use. The peroxide drops are placed in one ear canal which is then plugged with the silicone putty while drops are put in the other ear. After several minutes during which I heard odd crackling noises coming from my ears I removed the putty and rinsed my ear canals with warm water using the syringe. While I couldn't actually see anything coming out of my ears I could feel it. Make sure you really flush the peroxide well. Leaving peroxide in your ear canal can cause a nasty ear ache. **The Results** Was my hearing miraculously restored? Of course not! But here's the thing. It improved quite a bit. I mean, you can only push ear wax down your ear canals with a Q-tip for so many years while swearing you're cleaning your ears. A thorough cleaning with the **Physician's Choice Ear Wax Removal System** does my hearing good. You may require a professional cleaning after all. But considering how easy and inexpensive the **Physician's Choice Ear Wax Removal System** is, I'd recommend giving it a try.
