If you cut your leg, it heals. In a short time, your stubbed toe will feel better. Even if you break a bone, when correctly 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 treatments enable that healing?
What is the conceptual foundation for homeopathic medicine?
The basic concept is that homeopathic medicine is natural. The philosophy proposes that you’re treating the person and not simply the sickness. The basic idea is that the human body should repair itself. People who believe in this think the body will heal quicker than normal if it receives the right encouragement.
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”. The fact that a cure would be called “like a disease” might sound odd.”
This is because many homeopathic remedies use compounds that are harmful in large amounts like arsenic, nightshade, and even poison ivy. Homeopathic supporters think that by administering these substances in minute amounts, a natural healing process is triggered.
While some dismiss homeopathy, others believe in its value. Normally, once a person forms an opinion on this, it’s hard to change their mind. What we will address is why there are no homeopathic remedies for hearing loss.
Homeopathy may be harmless at best for other parts of the body but with the ears, it can actually result in significant damage.
How hearing works
The inner ear looks like a snail shell, known as the cochlea. This structure has little hairs called cilia. These hair cells oscillate rhythmically with the sound waves that are created when something makes a noise. The way in which these hair cells move sends complex signals to the brain. These signals are then sorted out by the brain and differentiated as unique sounds. It can decode whether someone said the letter “T” or the letter “D.”
When a healthy child is born, they have thousands of these little hairs. But these hairs decay as you get older and your ears are exposed to infections, loud noises, and other risks. They bend over. They break. They die. They can no longer effectively receive sound.
The most fragile hairs are the ones that pick up high pitched sounds like birds chirping or the voices of little 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.
Hearing and homeopathy
Homeopathic medicines are believed to work by compelling the body’s natural healing systems. In the case of human hearing, there’s no natural healing process in place. These hairs won’t grow back.
