If you get a cut, that cut will heal. Before too long, your stubbed toe will feel better. Even a broken bone will mend if correctly set.
But if you lose your hearing what happens. Can the inner ear heal itself? Can you get your hearing back? Can that healing be facilitated by homeopathic remedies?
What is the conceptual foundation for homeopathic medicine?
Homeopathy is considered natural medicine. The philosophy proposes that you’re treating the person and not only the ailment. Basically, the human body should have the ability to activate its own healing ability. People who promote 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 basis. So the term homeopathy means “like a disease”. The fact that a cure would be called “like a disease” may sound strange.”
But it’s called that because it uses substances like nightshade and arsenic which would be unsafe in large amounts. The thought is that by administering these types of substances, you stimulate a natural healing process.
Some people believe in homeopathic treatments and others don’t. It isn’t something that you can easily convince people of either way. What we will deal with is why there are no homeopathic treatments for hearing loss.
Homeopathy may be harmless at best for other parts of the body but with the ears, it can actually result in substantial damage.
How hearing works
The cochlea, which is the term for the inner ear, is shaped like a snail shell. This structure carries tiny hairs called cilia. These hair cells vibrate rhythmically with the sound waves that are produced when something makes a sound. The way in which these hair cells move transmits complex signals to the brain. These signals are then sorted out by the brain and distinguished as unique sounds. It can decipher whether someone said the letter “T” or the letter “D.”
There are thousands of these tiny hairs in your ears when you’re a newborn. But as you age, your ears are exposed to loud sounds, infections, and other risks that literally shake these little hair cells to pieces. They bend over. They break. They die. Sound will no longer be received and carried by these dead hairs.
The most fragile hairs are the ones that detect high frequency sounds like birds chirping or the voices of small children. So these are the first to go when your ears start to take damage.
When these hairs are destroyed, they won’t grow back or heal themselves — ever. That’s why it’s so important to use hearing protection.
Hearing and homeopathy
The body’s natural healing process is believed to be stimulated by homeopathic treatments. But hearing loss doesn’t ever heal. When these hairs are gone, they never regrow.
The best thing to do, if you’re experiencing early hearing loss, is to call us for a hearing examination. You will probably be doing long term damage if you put off getting a hearing exam and instead try a homeopathic approach. Speak to us today about proven prevention and treatment options.
