Harmony’s Story

Doc Harmony’s Story starts in 1991… 

My story begins with Christopher, my first-born son, who was diagnosed with an ear infection.  For the next six months, he repeatedly had ear infections and was given several rounds of antibiotics.  However, none of them worked. As a matter of fact, the last antibiotic he ever took caused him to vomit them up violently. At this point, I was angry, frustrated, scared and alone as a single mother (with Blue Cross/Blue Shield Insurance) and I thought, “enough is enough”.

I really had no idea where to go or what solutions were available. At the time, I was working on one of the top floors of Georgia Power (Southern Company) and I was on the fast track to success in Corporate America as I was one year away from finishing up my Bachelor’s Degree in International Studies with a minor in Economics.   

Going to school, working full time and taking care of Christopher was tough but as I watched Christopher’s health decline, nothing else really matter.  Thank goodness I remembered Dr. James Berryhill!  He is a Naturopathic doctor that lives and works in Decatur, Georgia. I visited Dr. Berryhill and he recommended ear candles.  I was completely ignorant and had no information about these ‘things’.  I was very perplexed and thought it was an incredibly strange idea – “Stick a lit candle in my little boys ear?”. 

Using Ear Candles for the First Time…

But I was desperate and out of ideas.  I was determined not to let the doctors cajole me into another round of antibiotics that, clearly, were not working! So, I went and purchased ear candles from Rainbow Natural Foods in Decatur.  Boy, were they expensive at the time!  Christopher and I went home and I used 4 ear candles in the ear that was infected while we watched “The Little Mermaid” and he sucked on a red lollipop. (Remember, I knew nothing about natural health at this time!)

As I candled Christopher, I watched him become more and more relaxed, and the candles were definitely not hurting him.  The ear candles seemed to be providing him with relief and comfort.  It was pretty amazing yet mysterious to me.  I can attest that Christopher has never had an ear infection again.  Shortly after the ear candling session, Dr. Berryhill called me and was encouraging me to “make ear candles and sell them”. He promised to teach me what he knew as he had been trained at the Royal Academy of London. As a matter of fact, Dr. Berryhill, is part of the lineage to be the Queen’s doctor.  I laughed.  Seriously.  Around this time, I got married and had my second child, a beautiful, precious little girl.  And, at the same time, I pulled my back trying to learn how to golf (remember I was climbing the corporate ladder) and met Dr. Grant, a chiropractor. 

During this pregnancy, I was very reluctant to go to the hospital due to my last experience with Christopher at the hospital.  Dr. Grant introduced me to Debbie Pully, a homebirth midwife and I birthed my healthy daughter at home.  It was wonderful and amazing!  I wouldn’t do it any other way and I highly recommend it.

My life was beginning to change dramatically and I could feel the pull of a new calling in life.  Ear Candles, Dr. Grant, and home birthing was quite the opposite of what my original career goals were – to become CEO of a multinational corporation!  But this new lifestyle was not compatible with working for an energy company. 

I had already begun making ear candles in the home under Dr. Berryhills mentoring and I had been sharing them with other single moms, mothers and families that were in need.  What we all saw, experienced and observed was amazing! 

Entering the Natural Healthcare Community… 

During this period in my life, I had been volunteering my time working with the Natural Health Food community to pass the Dietary Supplement Health Education Act at the Federal level.  This bill was extremely critical for protecting their supplements in the United States.  I still did not know much about the natural health industry and I never considered myself a ‘hippy’.  What I did know was that people had a Right to choose their own Health Care.  I felt that it was unjust and a violation of peoples Right if they were unable to choose supplements as a part of their natural health care plan.  Personal health care is precious and too valuable to place in the hands of the government.  Click here for a flashback – even Mel Gibson was concerned the FDA would take away our supplements:

“Without DSHEA,” said Scott Tips, attorney and National Health Federation counsel, “there would be far more single-ingredient supplements at lower potencies, less innovation and the FDA would be able to squeeze far more than it can now any ‘non-compliant’ companies with fines and compliance actions. The thousands of new products that have hit the supplement market since […] DSHEA would have been a trickle instead.”

I had begun selling ear candles in 1992 and I really enjoyed getting to know the local natural health food community. Due to my work with DSHEA, I was embraced with open arms and my ear candles began to sell.  I felt so fortunate and extremely blessed, I would travel with the children (by now I had 3), taking field trips and visiting health food stores along the way in Georgia, Florida, and Tennessee.  It was so awesome to be able to work and to grow up together as a family. We all discovered the natural health community, while working and homeschooling together.

During this time, I had a lot of sinus infections, which invariably led to ear infections.  I was surprised that this had not improved as we had changed our diets, eating as much organic foods that was available, exercising and living a much cleaner lifestyle.  One day, I had a horrible migraine, a sinus infection and two ear infections.  You can only imagine how terribly I wanted to ‘chop my head off’!    Since all I could do was lie on the couch, I thought well, I might as well do some ear candles. 

I literally, ear candled for the majority of the day … and each ear candle that I used, I felt better and better and better.  I seriously could not believe it!  6 hours later I was up cooking dinner for everyone.  I got a great night sleep and the next day, I was feeling great.  I really understood that when the body was under stressful situations the improvement in health could occur when ear candles were used. 

Dr. Harmony PhD… 

As we were all growing up together, I elected to return to school and obtain my Masters and Doctorate in the Science of Natural Health. My final academic achievement was writing my Dissertation on Ear Candles

Obtaining my doctorate was not easy.  I was irritated that I could not find a suitable or interesting topic for my dissertation.  I did not want to do my dissertation on ear candles because I thought I knew everything and I wanted to learn something new, something challenging.  But alas, nothing came to me and I was running out of time so I started writing my dissertation on ear candles and boy was I surprised.  The majority of what I thought was true … was not! 

My dissertation on ear candles revealed many of the misconceptions surrounding ear candles (they do not pull wax out of the ear and they are not from the Hopi Tribe, Aztec, Mayans or Egyptians, for example). The truth helped pave the way for education and ear candle usage, as well as set the stage worldwide for the proper classification of ear candles.  Ear candles are not a medical device. They are for relaxation purposes for when the body is under stress physically, mentally or even emotionally.

From our Families to Yours… 

At some point I knew that I could not continue making ear candles on my own while homeschooling the children. Every night we would make ear candles and I knew we needed help. So, I went to my local homeschooling community and offered jobs to homeschooling families and in particular, single mothers. Being a single mother for a while, I truly wanted to help other single mothers so that they too could stay at home with their children and watch them grow up.

Over the years, I have had the pleasure of working with Native Americans, people with disabilities, single moms, and my elders. It was important to me to implement Fair Trade type principles before we even used that ‘tag line’. I loved working with those in need, providing training, flexible hours, and quotas, basically allowing each family to mold their own working lifestyle and as a result we were able to grow to become the largest handcrafted ear candle company in the world.

Going Carbon Neutral… 

Our little family eventually moved out into the middle of nowhere and started homesteading and I wanted to neutralize our carbon footprint upon the Earth.  We decided to generate our own electricity for the family and for Harmony Cone. Using less than an acre to do this, we were able to protect 19 acres of land, trees and animals from clear cutting or deforestation. We were lucky to have found acreage that had never been sprayed by harmful chemicals and had running water.  We also began to do organic gardening and we have grown as many as 40 different types of herbs and many varieties of vegetables and fruit.  I wanted to be able to teach my children the importance of the planet, the land, and our relationship to it.  As a mother this has been so very rewarding.  We still cut wood to keep warm in the winter. We love respecting the relationship between the fallen tree the land has provided and the wood burning stoves that keep us warm during winter.

Creating the World’s Safest Ear Candle… 

During the next several years, newly married, my husband and I made changes to the ear candles. We focused on improvements in safety and efficacy. We were the first to double wrap their candles, with a comfortable pointed tip. We were the first in the USA to use a burn line label to indicate when to extinguish the candle. To ensure the safety of their ear candles worldwide, we were the first and only to implement a USA patented safety tip that also accelerates the vortex as well as protects the end user from any mishaps. The Harmony Cone Website, now Healthy Energy Amazing Life website continues to be the stopping place for education and history about ear candles and, now our many other products.

Appachi Eco Logic Cotton…

In our never-ending quest to find the finest raw materials to handcraft ear candles, we found a family with a similar story of our own. Appachi Cotton, located in India, who had been suffering from the pesticides and GMO seeds of Monsanto. Their land, business, and families were being destroyed.

Appachi Cotton decided that enough was enough and they started joining with other local families, farmers, and weavers to gain back control of their land, their history, and their cotton. Over time, they became sustainable, restored the land and its animals, and became a Certified Organic Cotton farm.  In 2011, My husband and I decided to purchase all of our cotton cloth from this local community of families. In 2012, we produced the first and only Certified Organic Cotton Ear Candle in the world.

As I write this in 2020, I am grateful for the opportunity to serve in this industry and to serve others.  I am delighted that I am able to bring a little bit of magic to peoples’ lives with natural health products, especially ear candles.  Over the years, the healings that I have witnessed have continued to surprise me over and over.  To be honest, even to this day, I am not 100% clear exactly how they work or what they do.  I just know that they help people relax, which allows people to heal themselves.
