If you cut your arm, it heals. If you stub your toe, it may feel bruised and inflamed but the inflammation will subside, and you’ll feel better pretty soon. Even if you break a bone, when properly set, it will heal.
But if hearing is damaged what happens. Is it possible for the inner ear to heal? Can you get your hearing back? Can homeopathic remedies help that healing?
What is homeopathic medicine’s approach?
Homeopathy is considered natural medicine. The philosophy suggests that you’re treating the person and not only the sickness. Basically, the human body should have the ability to activate its own healing ability. People who promote this think the body will heal quicker than normal if it is given 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 word homeopathy means “like a disease”. This probably sounds weird, after all, why should a cure be called “like a disease?”
This is because many homeopathic treatments use substances that are harmful in large amounts like arsenic, nightshade, and even poison ivy. The idea is that by administering these types of substances, you encourage a natural healing process.
While some dismiss homeopathy, others believe in its value. Usually, once a person forms an opinion on this, it’s hard to change their mind. What we will deal with is why there are no homeopathic treatments for 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 inner ear is shaped like a snail shell, known as the cochlea. There are tiny hairs, called cilia, inside of this structure. When sound is produced, these little hairs will oscillate rhythmically. Complex signals are transmitted to the brain as these hairs oscillate with incoming sound waves. These signals are then sorted out by the brain and differentiated as unique sounds. It can decode 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 these hairs disintegrate as you age and your ears are exposed to infections, loud sounds, and other hazards. They bend, break, and die. They can no longer efficiently receive sound.
The most fragile hairs are the ones that detect high pitched sounds like the chirping of birds or the voices of little children. So these are the first to go when your ears begin to take damage.
When these hairs are destroyed, they won’t grow back or heal themselves — ever. That’s why protecting your hearing is so essential.
Hearing and homeopathy
Homeopathic remedies are believed to work by compelling the body’s natural healing processes. In the case of human hearing, there’s no natural healing process in place. These hairs won’t grow back.
