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 correctly set, it will heal.
But what if your hearing is damaged? Is it possible for the inner ear to heal? Can you get your hearing back? Can homeopathic treatments enable that healing?
What is homeopathic medicine’s approach?
The basic concept is that homeopathic medicine is natural. You’re treating the complete person, according to this method, not simply the ailment. The basic premise is that the human body should repair itself. Individuals who promote this think the body will heal faster than normal if it receives the right encouragement.
What is homeopathic medicine made of?
The prefix “Homeo” means “like” and the basis of the word “pathy” means “disease”. So the general definition of homeopathy is “like a disease”. The fact that a cure would be called “like a disease” may sound strange.”
This is because many homeopathic remedies use substances that are unsafe in large amounts like arsenic, nightshade, and even poison ivy. The thought is that by applying these kinds of substances, you encourage a natural healing process.
While some disregard homeopathy, others believe in its benefits. It isn’t something that you can easily persuade people of one way or the other. What we will deal with is why there are no homeopathic remedies for hearing loss.
Unlike other parts of the body where homeopathy may 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, looks like a snail shell. There are little hairs, known as cilia, inside of this structure. When sound is created, these tiny hairs will vibrate rhythmically. The way in which these hair cells vibrate transmits complex signals to the brain. The brain can decipher these signals to distinguish between a cat’s meow and a car horn. What letters and words are being spoken can also be distinguished.
There are thousands of these little 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 sounds, and other hazards. They bend over. They break. They die. Sound will no longer be received and transmitted by these dead hairs.
The most sensitive hairs are the ones that detect high pitched sounds like the chirping of birds or the voices of little children. So if injury happens, these are the first to go.
When these hairs are damaged, they won’t grow back or heal themselves — ever. That’s why it’s so critical to use hearing protection.
Hearing and homeopathy
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 in place. These hairs don’t grow back.
If you’re experiencing early stage hearing loss, the best thing you can do is give us a call for a hearing exam. If you delay getting medical assistance and treatment while you “try” homeopathic medicine, you could be doing more lasting harm to your hearing. We can help you with treatment solutions that are proven.
