In this blog post, we explore some of the natural ways in which we can prevent hearing loss and explain if hearing impairments can be improved naturally.
Millions of people all over the world are affected by hearing loss, including 37 million Americans. While the condition is mainly related to the natural aging process, a diminished ability to hear should be treated carefully and approached with diligence. However, natural remedies may be useful at maintaining healthy hearing rather than curing hearing loss.
It is true that in the majority of cases hearing impairment is connected to age and the deterioration of the auditory nerves. However, that does not mean that treatment is not possible, on the contrary, it should be sought.
We supply a number of items to help prevent hearing loss such as ear plugs, as well as amplified products including wireless TV listeners, to help improve your hearing.
Depending on the type of hearing loss – conductive or sensorineural, it may be reversible. Conductive hearing loss may result from an earwax build-up, ear infections, inflammation, medicines, injuries or malformations. If hearing impairment is caused by some of these conditions, there are various medical treatments available that can restore hearing such as antibiotics, surgery, earwax removal, etc.
If you suffer from sensorineural hearing loss, that means that the tiny hairs in your inner ear are irreversibly damaged and as they cannot regenerate the condition will remain permanent. Most often, this type of hearing impairment occurs with age progression and the detrimental effects of the free radicals in the body formed when burning carbohydrates. By definition, a free radical is a molecule that due to its instability often damages any cell it interacts with. It also changes DNA and thus “errors” in the body functions occur. These may include problems with blood circulation and supply to various organs, including the inner ear, which in turn may lead to hearing problems.
For such conditions, hearing aids are recommended along with other types of assistive hearing devices. While hearing aids do not cure or restore normal hearing, they amplify sounds so that the wearer can communicate more easily and independently.
Natural restoration of hearing loss that has already been incurred is highly unlikely, especially in the case of sensorineural hearing loss. There are a number of popular home remedies whose properties are believed to have a healing or at least aiding effect on different organs or health conditions. Some of the most common include Ginkgo biloba, garlic, marjoram (all known to improve blood circulation), apple vinegar (supplies the needed zinc, magnesium, potassium and manganese) and olive oil (used for ear infections).
However, many natural treatments are primarily connected to preserving existing hearing rather than curing hearing loss. Popular methods for maintaining or improving hearing are:
Ultimately, however, a hearing aid is one of the most successful approaches to improving and managing a hearing loss. And they are much less expensive and obtrusive than many people think!
We are one of the world's leading suppliers of hearing aids, hearing aid batteries, and amplified products such as super loud alarm clocks and phones for the deaf.
