If you cut your arm, it heals. If you stub your toe, it might feel bruised and inflamed but the inflammation will subside, and you’ll feel better pretty soon. Even a broken bone will mend if properly set.
But if you lose your hearing what happens. Is it possible for the inner ear to heal? Will your hearing come back? Can that healing be helped by homeopathic treatments?
What is homeopathic medicine philosophy?
The basic concept is that homeopathic medicine is natural. The philosophy suggests that you’re treating the person and not simply the sickness. Basically, the human body should have the ability to activate its own healing ability. Individuals who promote this think the body will heal faster 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 general definition of homeopathy is “like a disease”. The fact that a cure would be called “like a disease” might seem strange.”
But it’s called that because it uses substances like nightshade and arsenic which would be harmful in large amounts. Homeopathic advocates believe that by using these substances in very small amounts, a natural healing process is triggered.
Some people believe in homeopathic treatments and others don’t. It isn’t something that you can easily convince people of either way. We need to explore why homeopathic treatments don’t apply to hearing loss.
Homeopathy may be harmless at best for other parts of the body but with the ears, it can actually lead to considerable harm.
How hearing works
The cochlea, which is the term for the inner ear, looks like a snail shell. There are tiny hairs, known as cilia, inside of this structure. These hair cells oscillate rhythmically with the sound waves that are created when something makes a sound. The way in which these hair cells move transmits complex signals to the brain. The brain can interpret these signals to distinguish between a cat’s meow and a car horn. What letters and words are being spoken can also be distinguished.
When a healthy child is born, they have thousands of these little hairs. But these hairs decay as you age and your ears are exposed to infections, loud noises, and other hazards. They bend. They break. They die. Sound will no longer be received and carried by these dead hairs.
The most fragile hairs are the ones that detect high frequency sounds like the chirping of birds or the voices of small children. So if injury occurs, these are the first to go.
Once these hairs are damaged, they won’t grow back or heal themselves — ever. That’s why it’s so critical to use hearing protection.
Hearing and homeopathy
The body’s natural healing process is believed to be activated by homeopathic treatments. But hearing loss doesn’t ever heal. When these hairs die, they never grow back.
