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 in a little while. Even if you break a bone, when properly set, it will heal.
But what if your hearing is damaged? Does the inner ear heal itself? Will your hearing come back? Can that healing be helped by homeopathic remedies?
What is homeopathic medicine philosophy?
Homeopathy is considered natural medicine. You’re treating the entire person, according to this approach, not simply the ailment. Basically, the human body should have the capacity to activate its own healing ability. Those who practice it believe they are encouraging 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 most likely sounds strange, after all, why would a cure be called “like a disease?”
This is because many homeopathic treatments use compounds that are unsafe in large amounts like arsenic, nightshade, and even poison ivy. The idea is that by applying these kinds of substances, you encourage a natural healing process.
Some people believe in homeopathic remedies and other people don’t. Usually, once a person develops an opinion on this, it’s difficult to change their mind. We need to investigate why homeopathic remedies 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 substantial, lasting damage to your ears.
How hearing works
The cochlea, which is the name for the inner ear, looks like a snail shell. This structure has tiny hairs called cilia. When sound is produced, these tiny hairs will vibrate rhythmically. The manner in which these hair cells move transmits complex signals to the brain. These signals are then sorted out by the brain and differentiated as unique sounds. What letters and words are being spoken can also be distinguished.
There are thousands of these tiny hairs in your ears when you’re a newborn. But these hairs decay 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 playing of children are the most fragile. So if injury takes place, these are the first to go.
These hairs will never heal or grow back. That’s why it’s so critical to use ear protection.
Homeopathy and Hearing
The body’s natural healing process is believed to be stimulated by homeopathic remedies. But hearing loss doesn’t ever heal. These hairs don’t grow back.
