How does one clear the escutcheon tube, naturally and or with herbs ? This has been ongoing for several years, although I try to drink more water and use sweet oil. There is tinninitus and a hearing loss for which I've been using hearing aids. Therein lies a very big problem, one of them is broken, and factory repair stated to be 500.00, replacment =1,200.00 Many times when I yawn there is a popping noise in my ears and momentarily hearing is improved, unfortunately it doesn't last. Help / suggestions needed.
