Company Review: Harmony Cone – Ear Candles

Harmony Cone – Ear Candles (a holistic approach since 1990 – 22 years)

I have the pleasure of knowing Doc Harmony for a number of years. I met her and her husband, Kevin, at Expo West in Anaheim. She radiates strength, beauty and an abundant passion to provide “alternative” options for health (she is a Naturopathic Doctor). Every year that I attend the show, I learn more fascinating insight into her life and how she came to start this company. As was told by Kevin (I am paraphrasing from what I remember), Harmony was a single Mom with a son who had lingering ear problems/infection for 6 months with no relief from any of the conventional treatments. She was told my a man about using ear candles as a way that may help. Harmony tried it, even though her son was fussy about having it done and it was the first night he slept peacefully in months and the “problem” was gone the next morning. It is always great to here a “success” story like this and then Harmony wanting to share this product with others who may be experiencing the same issue

In Harmony’s quest to bring this to the public, she has chosen to employ those who are less fortunate, such as single Mom’s (as she was) and those with other challenges to make the candles. The company uses the highest quality materials so there is no chance of any negative results and continues to refine and make necessary improvements for a better experience. No claims can be made that the candles can eliminate any ear aches, infections, etc, so you be the judge when you use it yourself. I have been using these ear candles for years and do enjoy the process and the relaxation I feel, amongst other things.

If you do decide to try ear candles, know that Harmony Cone are the top sellers in the market with no adverse incidents ever in the 20 years they have been available to the public. I say this because there are other companies who have had lawsuits because they used inferior materials. Don’t settle for second best or a cheaper candle because it may result in a stigma you have toward this industry altogether (like one bad apple ruins it for the bunch).

Another very important matter relating to ear candles, is the fact that the FDA is trying to ban the public from using them, claiming they are “medical devices.” How this came about is because Pfizer (the BIG drug company, came up with a children’s vaccine for ear infections – which has already killed some children in the US and some in Japan – where they have banned its use {our government has done nothing about it}). So in order to “take control,” they don’t want the public to have access to a “natural” product that may help and you would then need to get a prescription for it.

Harmony Cone, along with a few small candle companies and others are fighting the good fight against the FDA and are close to taking it to the Supreme Court (they told me first-hand that they will never give in and would rather burn down the company here in the US and start over in another country before they give even a cent to the FDA). If you would like to assist, there is a petition you can print out and sign (go to the link I provided and print it out–you will get 10 free candles for every 20 signatures you get and tell each person who signs to do the same. Don’t stop at 20, get as many as possible and you will get more free candles. We the public need to show that we will not be put down by BIG Pharma or any others who want to take away our rights as citizens.

FYI: Let Food Be Thy Medicine and Medicine Be Thy Food


My perspectives on various topics

that are health related

Topic: Let Food Be Thy Medicine and Medicine Be Thy Food (Hippocrates)

Thursday February 18, 2010

Here is another great quote from the Father of Medicine who also created the Hippocratic Oath (which in my honest opinion, has now become the “Hypocritical” Oath, as doctors do not follow his guidelines for treating people {that is what they are and not simply ‘patients’ as they are called} who are in need of medical care. Another thing that is “wrong” with the medicine in America, is that it has become sick care. There are countries in the East (I know that it used to work this way in the past and maybe it still occurs with some traditional doctors) where the doctor would not be paid if the person comes to them and is not well. Only when they are “symptom-free” did the doctor get to collect money. This makes sense to me! How about you? Please be sure to give me your feedback. For one thing, I do not ascribe to the western way of medicine a nd don’t have health insurance or see a doctor (I am not telling you to follow what I do, merely telling you the way I choose to live my life). I know that doctors can help with a diagnosis and also for emergency situations (like fixing broken bones) they can be a G-d send (as was for me when I broke my left elbow over 10 years ago). Getting back to the quote from Hippocrates, it makes perfect sense to me logically that he was a genius, even back then (he lived 400 years before J.C.)! His message is ageless and timeless! It is a shame that so many people have to go on all these diet programs like Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, Slimfast , etc. If they would follow the principle that Hippocrates stated in the above quote, in layman’s terms it would be: food = medicine; medicine = food. I know that the best foods to consume are mostly fruits and vegetables, preferably in their raw form. Take this into consideration and find even one fruit or vegetable that you like and would be willing to have more of it everyday and keep building on that idea. If you are an adult, think about the fruits you loved as a kid. What child did not like watermelon? How about grapes? (of course when they are in season is the best time to buy them). Next, you can try a fruit you have never eaten. If you aren’t sure you’ll like it, when you go to the supermarket, farmers market, etc ask if you can get a piece of it to try. More than likely, you will be able to do so. Do some research on the internet for exotic fruits or tropical fruits and find out about the many options that are available to you.

and the last one is for the actual oath
