Eustachian tube Exercises
You know that plugged up feeling you get in your ears when you’re landing in an airplane? You normally try swallowing, yawning or chewing gum to try and clear it up – but that doesn’t always work……Some people suffering from allergies, sinus problems or a cold might have this same feeling whenever cold and allergy season kicks in.
Now, whether you know it or not, every time you swallow and yawn you are actually exercising your ears! More specifically, your Eustachian tubes. We exercise our Eustachian tube system over a thousand times a day when we swallow and yawn. These exercises are the body’s natural process for equalizing the air pressure behind our eardrums.
During the swallowing exercise your body is already trying to open your Eustachian tubes, but sometimes swallowing alone isn’t enough. That’s where the Eustachi comes in………The Eustachi helps you exercise your Eustachian tubes, as you swallow, using a little air delivered through your nose.
The Eustachi is the first product marketed to help with the general physical conditioning of the Eustachian tube system. It works with the body’s natural process of swallowing.
The muscles of the eustachian tube system help open and close the tube, thus allowing it to perform its function. These muscles are the (1) tensor veli palatini, (2) levator veli palatini, (3) salpingopharyngeus, and (4) tensor tympani. The Eustachi helps open the Eustachian tubes during the swallow by using a little air delivered through your nose. Eustachi works with your body's natural swallowing exercise.
How is Eustachi different than this?....
People often ask, “what’s the difference between using the Eustachi and pinching your nose and blowing? (also called the Valsalva Maneuver)”
That’s simple…when you pinch your nose and blow, you aren't yawing or swallowing, so your Eustachian tubes aren't naturally opening. Pinching your nose and blowing is one type of exercise, but it forces the tubes open.
Also, pinching you nose and blowing requires the proper technique. It is up to the individual to know how to do it the right way..which can be a challenge for parents to teach.
The Eustachi works WITH your body as you swallow. When you are swallowing the tubes are naturally opening. The air from Eustachi helps complete the exercise when swallowing isn't enough.
And the Eustachi is so easy to use on others - all they need to do is swallow, which can be accomplished by holding a sip of water in the mouth.
The all-new Eustachi is drug-free, safe, and simple to use! Eustachi helps exercise your Eustachian Tubes naturally anytime, anywhere using just a little air.
