If you get a cut, that cut will heal. If you stub your toe, it may feel painful and inflamed but the inflammation will subside, and you’ll feel better pretty soon. Even a broken bone will heal if properly set.
But if hearing is damaged what happens. Does the inner ear heal itself? Will your hearing come back? Can homeopathic remedies help that healing?
What is homeopathic medicine philosophy?
The basic thought is that homeopathic medicine is natural. You’re treating the complete person, according to this approach, not simply the illness. Essentially, 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 is given the right encouragement.
What is homeopathic medicine made of?
The prefix “Homeo” signifies “like” and the root 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 remedies use substances that are unsafe in large quantities like arsenic, nightshade, and even poison ivy. Homeopathic supporters believe that by administering these substances in very small quantities, a natural healing process is triggered.
While some disregard homeopathy, other people believe in its value. It isn’t something that you can easily persuade people of either way. We need to investigate why homeopathic treatments don’t apply to hearing loss.
Homeopathy may be harmless at best for other parts of the body but with the ears, it can actually cause considerable damage.
How hearing works
The cochlea, which is the term for the inner ear, is shaped like a snail shell. There are tiny hairs, called cilia, inside of this structure. When sound is produced, these little hairs will vibrate rhythmically. The manner in which these hair cells move transmits complex signals to the brain. The brain can interpret these signals to distinguish between a cat’s meow and a car horn. 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 first born. But these hairs decay as you get older and your ears are exposed to infections, loud noises, and other hazards. They bend over. They break. They die. They can no longer effectively receive sound.
The most delicate hairs are the ones that detect high pitched sounds like birds chirping or the voices of little children. So if injury occurs, these are the first to go.
These hairs will never grow back or heal. That’s why safeguarding your hearing is so essential.
Homeopathy and Hearing
The body’s natural healing process is believed to be stimulated by homeopathic remedies. In the case of human hearing, there’s no natural healing process established. When these hairs die, they never grow back.
The best thing to do, if you’re noticing early hearing loss, is to call us for a hearing examination. If you delay getting medical assistance and treatment while you “try” homeopathic medicine, you might be doing more long term harm to your hearing. We can help you with treatment options that are proven.
