According to various conducted studies, there is a neurological link between specific areas of the body and the internal organs. This being said, if you take a closer look at your ears, you may be able to recognize your current health condition and even predict potential health issues. You are probably wondering if this is for real. It is and you can check out several different answers that your ears can give you!

Ears enable identification

When we are born, our ears are completely formed and this is why they can be used for personal identification, similarly to fingerprints.

Ears determine type of genes

A ‘normal’ earlobe is smooth whereas an earlobe with a crease has a fold, a wrinkle, or a straight line which makes the earlobe appear as if it is cut in half. Studies indicate that the former is a recessive hereditary trait whereas the latter is a dominant hereditary trait.

Coronary artery disease

A diagonal wrinkle on the earlobe may sometimes be a sign of coronary artery disease or an early symptom of it.

Lack of calcium and vitamins

If you have paler ears, you could be suffering from a low amount of specific vitamins or calcium.

Kidney issues

If you have rather reddish ears, you might be having kidney-related problems.

Brain disorders

If your ears are too red, you may be suffering from memory loss or brain diseases. An inflamed cartilage is often a symptom of relapsing polychondritis.

Ear reflexology

The ears have more than 200 acupuncture points that are linked to various organs and the musculoskeletal system. When pressured properly, this can help you get rid of different health issues, both physical and emotional.
