If you cut your arm, it heals. Before too long, your stubbed toe will feel better. Even if you break a bone, when properly set, it will heal.
But what if you lose your hearing? 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 philosophy?
Homeopathy is considered natural medicine. You’re treating the complete person, according to this method, not just the ailment. Basically, the human body should have the capacity to activate its own healing ability. Those who practice it think they are stimulating a natural healing process that allows the body to heal faster than normally possible.
What is homeopathic medicine made of?
“Homeo” means “like” and “pathy” has the word “disease” at its basis. So the word homeopathy means “like a disease”. This probably sounds odd, after all, why would a cure be called “like a disease?”
But it’s called that because it uses substances like nightshade and arsenic which would be harmful in large amounts. Homeopathic supporters believe that by administering these substances in minute quantities, a natural healing process is triggered.
While some disregard homeopathy, other people believe in its value. Normally, 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.
Unlike 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 looks like a snail shell, called the cochlea. This structure carries tiny hairs called cilia. When sound is created, 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 distinguished as unique sounds. 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 as you age, your ears are exposed to loud noises, infections, and other risks that literally shake these little hair cells to pieces. They bend, break, and die. They can no longer effectively receive sound.
The high-frequency hairs that can pick up sounds like a violin solo, birds chirping, or the playing of children are the most delicate. So if damage takes place, these are the first to go.
These hairs will never heal or grow back. That’s why protecting your ears is so significant.
Homeopathy and Hearing
Homeopathic remedies are believed to work by compelling the body’s natural healing processes. But hearing loss doesn’t ever heal. When these hairs die, they never grow back.
