It’s also worth noting that acupressure can also be used as an effective natural remedy for increased saliva production. To do this, you can use the acupoint, S-17, which can be found on both sides of the head. Turn your head to one side, and you will notice the big muscle from the back of your ear. The acupoint is located between this muscle and your jaw. This acupoint can be stimulated by applying constant pressure with the index finger tips for at least one minute. It can be used to treat a variety of ear-related conditions, such as dizziness, vertigo, nausea, deafness, tinnitus, ear irritation, swelling, and discharge.
