If you get a cut, that cut will heal. If you stub your toe, it may feel painful and inflamed but the inflammation will subside, and you’ll feel better in a little while. Even a broken bone will mend if properly set.
But if hearing is damaged what happens. Is it possible for the inner ear to heal? Can you get your hearing back? Can that healing be facilitated by homeopathic treatments?
What is homeopathic medicine philosophy?
The basic idea is that homeopathic medicine is natural. You’re treating the complete person, according to this approach, not simply the ailment. The basic premise is that the human body should repair itself. People who promote this think the body will heal quicker than normal if it receives the right encouragement.
What is homeopathic medicine made of?
“Homeo” means “like” and “pathy” has the word “disease” at its basis. So the term homeopathy means “like a disease”. This most likely sounds strange, after all, why should a cure be called “like a disease?”
But it’s called that because it uses substances like nightshade and arsenic which would be harmful in large amounts. The thought is that by applying these kinds of substances, you encourage a natural healing process.
Some people believe in homeopathic treatments and other people don’t. It’s not something that you can easily convince people of one way or the other. We need to explore why homeopathic treatments don’t apply to hearing loss.
Homeopathy may be harmless at best for other parts of the body but with the ears, it can actually cause considerable damage.
How hearing works
The inner ear looks like a snail shell, known as the cochlea. There are tiny hairs, called cilia, inside of this structure. When sound is produced, these little hairs will vibrate rhythmically. The way in which these hair cells vibrate transmits complex signals to the brain. These signals are then sorted out by the brain and distinguished as unique sounds. What letters and words are being spoken can also be differentiated.
There are thousands of these little hairs in your ears when you’re first born. But as you get older, 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 high-frequency hairs that can pick up sounds like a flute solo, birds chirping, or the children playing are the most fragile. So these are the first to go when your ears begin to take damage.
These hairs will never grow back or heal. That’s why safeguarding your hearing is so important.
Homeopathy and Hearing
The body’s natural healing process is believed to be activated by homeopathic treatments. In the case of human hearing, there’s no natural healing process established. When these hairs die, they never regrow.
If you’re noticing early stage hearing loss, the smartest thing you can do is call us for a hearing exam. You will most likely be doing lasting harm if you put off getting a hearing assessment and instead try a homeopathic strategy. We can help you with treatment solutions that are proven.
