1. Improves reproductive health
The earlobe contains a very vital point right in the middle of the lobe that is very important for reproductive health. This point, in accordance with the Ayurvedic literature, is said to help regulate a woman’s menstrual cycle. These benefits flow on over to males since it maintains healthy and robust reproductive organs in males. Piercing this part of the ear is therefore very beneficial for reproductive health for both genders. In addition to this, the piercing also helps prevent a large assortment of infections as well as preventing hydrocele (filling up of fluid in the testicles) as well as a hernia in males.
2. Improves digestive system
Earlobes have a pressure point that is linked to the digestive system. Acupressure experts have discovered that the earlobes have a hunger pressure point which when pierced allows for the easier digestion of food thus keeping the functions of the alimentary canal optimal and in the process keeping diseases and digestive complications like constipation at bay.
3. Boosts mental growth
Research has proven that the earlobes have meridian points that connect to the left and the right hemispheres of the human brain. It is said that piercing these points helps activate these two hemispheres. Acupressure therapists also support these findings, claiming that when these meridian points are stimulated, through piercing, it helps the brain to develop and become healthier while boosting the memory of the individual. This explains why it is usually recommended to pierce a child’s ears when they are still young to improve their mental health, especially because this is the time when the brain is usually developing. In addition to improving brain health, ear piercing has been used as a means of curing migraines. Traditional Chinese Medical experts, who practice acupressure and acupuncture, have used daith piercing as a means of dealing with migraines. The use of daith piercing for migraines involves piecing the innermost cartilage fold of the ear, that which connects the ear cartilage to the skull. This point of daith piercing has been previously been associated with helping with digestion, but after frequent use experts have found that it alleviates chronic pain, headaches and migraines and has thus grown in popularity as a way to cure migraines. To get the best results from daith piercing, pierce the ear that is on the same side of the head that frequently gets the headaches.

Acupuncture experts have discovered that the central point of the earlobe is also the centre for vision. Getting an ear piercing in this region, therefore, leads to improved eyesight.

If these points are pierced it will improve the child’s hearing and additionally help keep symptoms of tinnitus on the low.
