If you cut your arm, it heals. In a short time, your stubbed toe will feel better. Even if you break a bone, when correctly set, it will heal.
But if hearing is damaged what happens. Is it possible for the inner ear to heal? Will your hearing come back? Can homeopathic remedies enable that healing?
What is homeopathic medicine’s approach?
The basic thought is that homeopathic medicine is natural. You’re treating the complete person, according to this approach, not simply the illness. The basic concept is that the human body should repair itself. People who promote this think the body will heal quicker than normal if it is given the right encouragement.
What is homeopathic medicine made of?
The prefix “Homeo” means “like” and the basis of the word “pathy” means “disease”. So the word homeopathy means “like a disease”. The fact that a cure would be called “like a disease” might sound strange.”
But it’s called that because it uses substances like nightshade and arsenic which would be harmful in large quantities. The idea is that by applying these types of substances, you encourage a natural healing process.
While some disregard homeopathy, others believe in its value. Usually, once a person develops an opinion about this, it’s difficult to change their mind. We need to explore why homeopathic remedies don’t apply to hearing loss.
Homeopathy might be harmless at best for other parts of the body but with the ears, it can actually lead to substantial damage.
How hearing works
The cochlea, which is the name for the inner ear, looks like a snail shell. This structure contains little hairs called cilia. When sound is created, these little hairs will oscillate rhythmically. Complex signals are sent to the brain as these hairs vibrate with incoming sound waves. The brain can decipher these signals to differentiate between a cat’s meow and a car horn. It can decipher whether someone said the letter “T” or the letter “D.”
There are thousands of these tiny hairs in your ears when you’re a newborn. But as you age, your ears are exposed to loud sounds, infections, and other hazards that literally shake these tiny hair cells to pieces. They bend, break, and die. Sound will no longer be received and transmitted by these dead hairs.
The most fragile hairs are the ones that pick up high frequency sounds like the chirping of birds or the voices of little children. So these are the first to go when your ears start to take damage.
When these hairs are damaged, they won’t grow back or heal themselves — ever. That’s why it’s so essential to use ear protection.
Hearing and homeopathy
The body’s natural healing system is believed to be stimulated by homeopathic treatments. But hearing loss doesn’t ever heal. These hairs won’t grow back.
The best course of action, if you’re developing early hearing loss, is to call us for a hearing exam. You will probably be doing lasting harm if you put off getting a hearing assessment and instead try a homeopathic strategy. We can help you with treatment options that are proven.
