If you cut your leg, it heals. If you stub your toe, it might feel bruised and inflamed but the inflammation will subside, and you’ll feel better in a little while. Even if you break a bone, when properly set, it will heal.
But if hearing is damaged what happens. Can the inner ear heal itself? Can you get your hearing back? Can homeopathic remedies help that healing?
What is the conceptual foundation for homeopathic medicine?
The basic idea is that homeopathic medicine is natural. The philosophy proposes that you’re treating the person and not simply the ailment. The basic premise is that the human body should repair itself. Those who practice it believe they are encouraging a natural healing process that allows the body to heal faster than otherwise possible.
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 weird, after all, why would a cure be called “like a disease?”
But it’s called that because it uses compounds like nightshade and arsenic which would be harmful in large quantities. The idea is that by using these types 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 either way. What we will address is why there are no homeopathic treatments for hearing loss.
Homeopathy might be harmless at best for other parts of the body but with the ears, it can actually result in significant harm.
How hearing works
The cochlea, which is the name for the inner ear, is shaped like a snail shell. There are tiny hairs, called cilia, inside of this structure. When sound is created, these little hairs will oscillate rhythmically. Complex signals are sent to the brain as these hairs oscillate with incoming sound waves. These signals are then sorted out by the brain and differentiated as unique sounds. What letters and words are being spoken can also be distinguished.”
When a healthy child is born, they have thousands of these little hairs. But these hairs disintegrate as you age and your ears are exposed to infections, loud sounds, and other risks. They bend, break, and die. They can no longer effectively receive sound.
The high-frequency hairs that can pick up sounds like a violin solo, birds chirping, or the playing of children are the most sensitive. So if injury occurs, these are the first to go.
When these hairs are destroyed, they don’t grow back or heal themselves — ever. That’s why it’s so important 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. When these hairs die, they never grow back.
The best plan of action, if you’re experiencing early hearing loss, is to give us a call for a hearing test. You will probably be doing lasting harm if you put off getting a hearing assessment and instead try a homeopathic strategy. Speak to us today about proven prevention and treatment options.
