Why You Should Skip Homeopathy For Hearing Loss

Homeopathic herbs and flowers in mortar and pestle with tincture and medicine bottles on a wooden table.

If you cut yourself, 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 if you break a bone, when correctly set, it will mend.

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 enable that healing?

What is homeopathic medicine’s approach?

Homeopathy is thought of as natural medicine. The philosophy proposes that you’re treating the person and not simply the sickness. Essentially, 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 most likely sounds weird, after all, why should a cure be called “like a disease?”

This is because many homeopathic treatments use substances that are unsafe in large quantities like arsenic, nightshade, and even poison ivy. The thought is that by using these kinds of substances, you encourage a natural healing process.

While some disregard homeopathy, other people believe in its benefits. It’s not something that you can easily persuade people of either way. What we will deal with is why there are no homeopathic remedies for 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 harm to your ears.

How hearing works

The cochlea, which is the name for the inner ear, looks like a snail shell. There are little hairs, called cilia, inside of this structure. These hair cells oscillate rhythmically with the sound waves that are produced when something makes a noise. 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 decipher whether someone said the letter “T” or the letter “D.”

When a healthy child is born, they have thousands of these little hairs. 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. Sound will no longer be received and carried by these dead hairs.

The high-frequency hairs that can detect sounds like a flute solo, birds chirping, or the playing of children are the most sensitive. So if damage occurs, these are the first to go.

These hairs will never grow back or heal. That’s why it’s so critical to use ear protection.

Homeopathy and Hearing

The body’s natural healing process is believed to be activated by homeopathic remedies. In the case of human hearing, there’s no natural healing process in place. These hairs don’t grow back.
