If you get a cut, that cut will heal. In a short time, your stubbed toe will feel better. Even if you break a bone, when properly set, it will mend.

But if you lose your hearing what happens. 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 suggests that you’re treating the person and not just the sickness. Essentially, the human body should have the capacity to activate its own healing ability. People who believe in this think the body will heal faster than normal if it is given the right encouragement.

What is homeopathic medicine made of?

“Homeo” means “like” and “pathy” has the word “disease” at its root. So the general meaning of homeopathy is “like a disease”. The fact that a cure would be called “like a disease” might sound odd.”

This is because many homeopathic treatments use substances that are unsafe in large quantities like arsenic, nightshade, and even poison ivy. The idea is that by applying these kinds of substances, you encourage a natural healing process.

While some dismiss homeopathy, others believe in its value. Normally, once a person forms an opinion on this, it’s difficult to change their mind. What we will address 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 significant, lasting harm to your ears.

How hearing works

The inner ear looks like a snail shell, called the cochlea. This structure has tiny hairs called cilia. These hair cells vibrate rhythmically with the sound waves that are produced when something makes a sound. Complex signals are sent to the brain as these hairs oscillate with incoming sound waves. The brain can decipher these signals to distinguish between a cat’s meow and a car horn. What words and letters are being spoken can also be distinguished.”

When a healthy child is born, they have thousands of these tiny hairs. But as you get older, your ears are exposed to loud noises, infections, and other risks that literally shake these tiny hair cells to pieces. They bend. They break. They die. They can no longer effectively receive sound.

The high-frequency hairs that can detect 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 start to take damage.

These hairs will never grow back or heal. That’s why protecting your ears is so significant.

Homeopathy and Hearing

The body’s natural healing process is believed to be stimulated by homeopathic treatments. In the case of human hearing, there is no natural healing process in place. These hairs don’t grow back.

The best plan of action, if you’re developing early hearing loss, is to call us for a hearing test. You will most likely be doing long term damage if you put off getting a hearing test and instead try a homeopathic strategy. Speak to us today about proven prevention and treatment possibilities.
