If you get a cut, that cut will heal. Before too long, your stubbed toe will feel better. Even a broken bone will heal if correctly set.
But what if your hearing is damaged? Is it possible for the inner ear to heal? Can you get your hearing back? Can homeopathic remedies facilitate that healing?
What is homeopathic medicine philosophy?
Homeopathy is thought of as natural medicine. The philosophy proposes that you’re treating the person and not just the ailment. The basic concept is that the human body should heal itself. Individuals 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 root. So the general definition of homeopathy is “like a disease”. This probably sounds weird, after all, why should a cure be called “like a disease?”
This is because many homeopathic remedies use substances that are harmful in large quantities like arsenic, nightshade, and even poison ivy. The thought is that by using these types of substances, you encourage a natural healing process.
Some individuals believe in homeopathic treatments and others don’t. Usually, once a person develops an opinion on this, it’s hard to change their mind. What we will deal with is why there are no homeopathic remedies for hearing loss.
In contrast to other parts of the body where homeopathy might be harmless at best, with hearing, you can actually do considerable, lasting harm to your ears.
How hearing works
The cochlea, which is the term for the inner ear, is shaped like a snail shell. There are tiny hairs, called cilia, inside of this structure. These hair cells vibrate rhythmically with the sound waves that are produced when something makes a noise. Complex signals are transmitted to the brain as these hairs vibrate with incoming sound waves. The brain can interpret these signals to differentiate between a cat’s meow and a car horn. What words and letters are being spoken can also be differentiated.”
When a healthy child is born, they have thousands of these tiny hairs. But as you age, your ears are exposed to loud noises, infections, and other hazards that literally shake these tiny hair cells to pieces. They bend, break, and die. They can no longer effectively receive sound.
The most delicate hairs are the ones that pick up high pitched sounds like birds chirping or the voices of little children. So if damage takes place, these are the first to go.
These hairs will never grow back or heal. That’s why safeguarding your ears is so essential.
Homeopathy and Hearing
Homeopathic remedies are believed to work by stimulating the body’s natural healing systems. But hearing loss doesn’t ever heal. These hairs don’t grow back.
