If you get a cut, that cut will heal. If you stub your toe, it may feel painful and inflamed but the inflammation will abate, and you’ll feel better in a little while. Even a broken bone will heal if correctly set.
But if hearing is damaged what happens. Is it possible for the inner ear to heal? Will your hearing come back? Can homeopathic remedies help that healing?
What is homeopathic medicine’s approach?
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. Those who practice it believe they are stimulating a natural healing process that lets the body heal faster than otherwise possible.
What is homeopathic medicine made of?
“Homeo” means “like” and “pathy” has the word “disease” at its root. So the general definition of homeopathy is “like a disease”. The fact that a cure would be called “like a disease” may sound odd.”
This is because many homeopathic remedies use substances that are harmful in large amounts like arsenic, nightshade, and even poison ivy. Homeopathic supporters believe that by using these substances in very small amounts, a natural healing process is triggered.
While some dismiss homeopathy, others believe in its value. It’s not something that you can easily persuade people of one way or the other. We need to explore 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 significant, lasting damage to your ears.
How hearing works
The cochlea, which is the term for the inner ear, looks like a snail shell. This structure has tiny hairs called cilia. When sound is created, these tiny hairs will vibrate rhythmically. The manner in which these hair cells vibrate sends 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 little hairs in your ears when you’re first born. But as you get older, your ears are exposed to loud sounds, infections, and other risks that literally shake these little hair cells to pieces. They bend. They break. They die. They can no longer effectively receive sound.
The most fragile hairs are the ones that detect high frequency sounds like the chirping of birds or the voices of small children. 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 protecting your ears is so essential.
Homeopathy and Hearing
The body’s natural healing system is believed to be activated by homeopathic treatments. In the case of human hearing, there is no natural healing process in place. These hairs won’t grow back.
