If you cut your leg, it heals. In a short time, your stubbed toe will feel better. Even if you break a bone, when properly set, it will mend.
But what if you lose your hearing? Is it possible for the inner ear to heal? Will your hearing come back? Can homeopathic treatments facilitate that healing?
What is the conceptual foundation for homeopathic medicine?
The basic idea is that homeopathic medicine is natural. You’re treating the whole person, according to this approach, not simply the ailment. Basically, the human body should have the ability to activate its own healing ability. People who believe in this think the body will heal quicker 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 term homeopathy means “like a disease”. The fact that a cure would be called “like a disease” might seem strange.”
This is because most homeopathic treatments use compounds that are unsafe in large quantities like arsenic, nightshade, and even poison ivy. Homeopathic advocates believe that by using these substances in very small quantities, a natural healing process is triggered.
Some people believe in homeopathic remedies and others don’t. Usually, once a person forms an opinion on this, it’s hard to change their mind. We need to investigate why homeopathic treatments don’t apply to hearing loss.
In contrast to other parts of the body where homeopathy may be harmless at best, with hearing, you can actually do considerable, lasting damage to your ears.
How hearing works
The cochlea, which is the name for the inner ear, looks like a snail shell. There are little hairs, called cilia, inside of this structure. These hair cells vibrate rhythmically with the sound waves that are created 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.”
When a healthy child is born, they have thousands of these tiny hairs. But as you get older, your ears are exposed to loud sounds, infections, and other hazards that literally shake these tiny hair cells to pieces. They bend, break, and 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 delicate. So if injury takes place, these are the first to go.
These hairs will never grow back or heal. That’s why it’s so important to use hearing protection.
Homeopathy and Hearing
The body’s natural healing system is believed to be activated by homeopathic treatments. But hearing loss doesn’t ever heal. When these hairs die, they never grow back.
The best course of action, if you’re developing early hearing loss, is to call us for a hearing examination. You will most likely be doing long term harm if you put off getting a hearing exam and instead try a homeopathic approach. We can help you with treatment options that are proven.
