If you cut your leg, it heals. Before too long, your stubbed toe will feel better. 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 the conceptual basis for homeopathic medicine?
Homeopathy is considered natural medicine. You’re treating the whole person, according to this method, not just the illness. The basic concept is that the human body should heal itself. Those who practice it think they are stimulating a natural healing process that lets the body heal faster than normally possible.
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”. The fact that a cure would be called “like a disease” may sound strange.”
This is because many homeopathic treatments use compounds that are harmful in large amounts like arsenic, nightshade, and even poison ivy. The idea is that by administering these types of substances, you encourage a natural healing process.
Some individuals believe in homeopathic treatments and other people don’t. Normally, once a person forms an opinion about this, it’s difficult to change their mind. We need to investigate 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 considerable, lasting damage to your ears.
How hearing works
The inner ear is shaped like a snail shell, called the cochlea. This structure contains little hairs called cilia. When sound is created, these tiny hairs will vibrate rhythmically. The way in which these hair cells vibrate sends complex signals to the brain. The brain can decipher these signals to differentiate between a cat’s meow and a car horn. What words and letters are being spoken can also be differentiated.
There are thousands of these little hairs in your ears when you’re first born. But as you age, your ears are exposed to loud sounds, infections, and other hazards that literally shake these little hair cells to pieces. They bend, break, and die. They can no longer efficiently receive sound.
The most sensitive hairs are the ones that pick up high pitched 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 grow back or heal. That’s why protecting your ears is so significant.
Homeopathy and Hearing
The body’s natural healing system is believed to be stimulated by homeopathic treatments. In the case of human hearing, there’s no natural healing process established. When these hairs are gone, they never grow back.
