If you cut yourself, that cut will heal. If you stub your toe, it might feel painful and inflamed but the inflammation will subside, and you’ll feel better in a little while. Even a broken bone will heal if properly set.
But if you lose your hearing what happens. Does the inner ear heal itself? Will your hearing come back? Can that healing be facilitated by homeopathic treatments?
What is the conceptual basis for homeopathic medicine?
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 idea is that the human body should repair itself. Those who practice it believe they are stimulating a natural healing process that allows the body to heal quicker than normally possible.
What is homeopathic medicine made of?
“Homeo” means “like” and “pathy” has the word “disease” at its root. So the word homeopathy means “like a disease”. The fact that a cure would be called “like a disease” might seem strange.”
But it’s called that because it uses compounds like nightshade and arsenic which would be unsafe in large quantities. The idea is that by using these kinds of substances, you encourage a natural healing process.
While some dismiss homeopathy, other people believe in its value. Usually, once a person forms an opinion about this, it’s difficult to change their mind. We need to investigate why homeopathic remedies 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 cause substantial damage.
How hearing works
The cochlea, which is the name for the inner ear, is shaped 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 produced when something makes a noise. Complex signals are sent 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. What words and letters are being spoken can also be distinguished.
When a healthy child is born, they have thousands of these little hairs. But these hairs disintegrate as you age and your ears are exposed to infections, loud sounds, and other risks. They bend, break, and die. Sound will no longer be received and carried by these dead hairs.
The high-frequency hairs that can detect sounds like a violin solo, birds chirping, or the children playing are the most delicate. So these are the first to go when your ears begin to take damage.
These hairs will never heal or grow back. That’s why it’s so critical to use ear 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. These hairs won’t grow back.
If you’re experiencing early stage hearing loss, the best thing you can do is call us for a hearing exam. You will probably be doing lasting damage if you put off getting a hearing exam and instead try a homeopathic approach. We can help you with treatment solutions that are proven.
