Ear, the organ of hearing, has two main functions. One is the sense of hearing, while the other is the sense of equilibration and of motion. Any trouble connected to the ear should be treated early as possible due to its importance, delicacy and inaccessibility.
In ayurveda there are three elements present in our body : vata, pitta and kapha which should be in balance. Karnaroga (diseases of the ear), is caused due to imbalance of these three elements.
