If you cut your arm, it heals. If you stub your toe, it may feel bruised and swollen but the inflammation will subside, and you’ll feel better in a little while. Even a broken bone will heal if properly set.
But what if you lose your hearing? Is it possible for the inner ear to heal? Can you get your hearing back? Can homeopathic treatments enable that healing?
What is the conceptual foundation for homeopathic medicine?
The basic idea is that homeopathic medicine is natural. You’re treating the entire person, according to this approach, not simply the illness. The basic concept is that the human body should repair itself. 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?
The prefix “Homeo” signifies “like” and the basis of the word “pathy” means “disease”. So the general meaning of homeopathy is “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 compounds like nightshade and arsenic which would be harmful in large amounts. The thought is that by applying these kinds of substances, you stimulate a natural healing process.
While some dismiss homeopathy, other people believe in its benefits. It’s not something that you can easily persuade people of one way or the other. We need to explore why homeopathic treatments 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 harm.
How hearing works
The inner ear is shaped like a snail shell, called the cochlea. There are little hairs, known as cilia, inside of this structure. These hair cells oscillate rhythmically with the sound waves that are created when something makes a sound. Complex signals are transmitted to the brain as these hairs vibrate with incoming sound waves. These signals are then sorted out by the brain and differentiated as unique sounds. It can decode whether someone said the letter “T” or the letter “D.”
There are thousands of these tiny hairs in your ears when you’re first born. But these hairs decay as you get older and your ears are exposed to infections, loud noises, and other hazards. They bend over. They break. They die. They can no longer effectively receive sound.
The high-frequency hairs that can pick up sounds like a flute solo, birds chirping, or the children playing are the most fragile. So if damage occurs, these are the first to go.
These hairs will never heal or grow back. That’s why safeguarding your hearing is so significant.
Hearing and homeopathy
The body’s natural healing system is believed to be activated by homeopathic treatments. But hearing loss doesn’t ever heal. These hairs won’t grow back.
The best course of action, if you’re noticing early hearing loss, is to call us for a hearing examination. You will probably be doing long term harm if you put off getting a hearing assessment and instead try a homeopathic approach. We can help you with treatment solutions that are proven.
