Smile PET Patulous eustachian tube - Started new therapy it's working

Hi Folks

Hopefully I am bringing some good news here on the PET front!!!

I have been trying many treatments with my Natropath and we have been led to antifungal treatments.

The reason this happened is that I read a message from a PET sufferer on a different healthboard and a natropath Dr answered and said have you considered a fungal problem... This got me thinking as my PET started when I moved to a tropical place, also that my PET is better in winter and in dry conditions and fungus is dormant in those conditions.. another thing was that my ear feels very itchy when my PET is worse, I also have candida problems..

I don't however have any pain in my ears which you would expect with a fungal problem, anyway we thought what the hell lets try it, she has put me on a couple of antifungal tablets (natural) and antifungal ear drops, let me know if you want to know the ingredients.

Well it's only been a few days and my ear has improved heaps, today I have had no problems at all, and yesterday it was pretty good, at first my ear itched worse than ever and has some pain but that could be a healing crises..

Anyway I could be counting my chickens too soon and it's just a coincedence but I will keep you posted on the progress... It is possible that for me a fungal problem is contributing to the PET but that may not be the case for you, but who knows it's worth a try..

Good luck to us all

Thanks, petear... I've been suffering with what I think is PET for almost 8 years now; and would be very interested in how your therapy is going if you'll keep us posted. Also, I'd appreciate it if you could share the ingredients of the pills and drops like you mentioned. Thanks.

Re: PET Patulous eustachian tube - Started new therapy it's working

Ingredients Below

Formula SF722 which contains 10-Undecenoic Acid and KI immune defence which contains Astragalus, Shitake mushroom, Olive leaf extract... Ear drops
5Ml Thuja, 10MlEthenol and 10MlCider Vinegar. From a Natropath.

It's been 4 PET free days now and no itching sensation in my ear, I can't say for sure that it's this treatment but it seems to be.. If I'm still good in 6 - 12 months then I would say yes definately. So I will keep everyone posted with a weekly or monthly update, If you don't hear from me then it's still working.

Re: PET Patulous eustachian tube - Started new therapy it's working

Hey I just did a search on 10-Undecenoic Acid and it can irritate the mucous membranes in some people, maybe that's why it's working??? Give it a go people and tell me what happens!!!

Just saw this quote and love it:

"The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease."

Re: PET Patulous eustachian tube - Started new therapy it's working

I've been suffering with PET for almost 4 years now and I would be very interested in learning how others have coeped with this annoying condition. I had an appt. with a specialist today in Ohio, Dr. Clifford Megarian, he prescribed some steroid nasal drops and told me that there was nothing else that could be done. I've tried the nasal drops before, they did not help me at all. He told me that I have to live with this annoying condition. I was heart broken. I truely was. I cried a few tears as soon as I got to my van. I am willing to try anything. Please share with me what has worked for you and what has not. Thank you, annsdc2007

Re: PET Patulous eustachian tube - Started new therapy it's working

The ear drops were made up by my natropath and she gave me the pills, if you do an internet search I'm sure you will find a place that sells them, I'm in Australia and I think she orders her stuff from New Zealand.. I actually think the pills: Formula SF722 is what is working so try those first.

Me too I have had it for 11 years and have been told the same stories, I have recently read that steriods and antibiotics will make a fungal problem worse, so if fungal is related to PET you can see how these things don't work!! Try the SF722 it's the only thing that has worked so quickly for me it's amazing... 6 days PET free now!!!

Re: PET Patulous eustachian tube - Started new therapy it's working

PETEAR: Its great that the drops and pills are working for you. However I have a coupla questions for you:

1) You said you're using Ear Drops..is that correct? If YES, I am surprised that its working coz there is no way for the drops to reach the ET through the ear. You can only get to it by using nose drops or something through the mouth.
2) You mentioned that maybe the mucous membranes are being irritated. But how can the mucous membranes be irritated through the ears since there are located in the nasal passage where you sinuses are?

Just wanted to clarify these points with you.

Take Care-
KSM79

Re: PET Patulous eustachian tube - Started new therapy it's working

I know it doesn't make sense it just SEEMS to be working..

I don't think the ear drops are doing anything personally, I think it's the SF722 I am pretty sure I have had systemic candida for some time and this has rid it, MAYBE the candida had some sort of chain reaction that affected the et tube like made me more susceptible to allergies or something, who knows...

The comment about mucous membranes was that I looked up the ingredients in SF722 and it said it may cause irritation of the mucous membrane in some people but I think that is if you come in contact with the liquid, if you broke the capsule open, i'm not really sure...

It could all be a co-incedence and it's because the barometric pressure has dropped or something but it seems a bit weird that I was really chronic and came good three days after taking the tablets.

I would like to see if anyone else gets results from taking it too, to see if it really is the tablets.

Who knows the body is a mysterious place and things don't always make sense, I just want to share my experience and hope that I may help someone else so they don't suffer for 11 years like I did...

7 days now PET free...

Re: PET Patulous eustachian tube - Started new therapy it's working

Well I cut down on the SF722 and didn't take the KI immune support and my ear is playing up a bit, very interesting!!!! so I'm not sure which is the one that helps the most.. I think I will go back on the prescribed dose again and experiment later...

Petear - I am intrigued because my PET is also at its worst in hot, humid weather, like it is every day in the DC summer.

Re: PET Patulous eustachian tube - Started new therapy it's working

Sorry folks
It stopped working, I think it might of been a coincedence or something but I had a wonderful couple of PET free weeks, it came back though and I still have it even though my Natropath increased the dose..

I see another ENT in November he is a Prof and apparently the man to see, so lets see what happens.

On the other hand I found that if I grab my throat to create pressure and then kind of strain my throat it works quite well at closing the tube, hey don't know if it's a safe thing to do though so be careful.
