If you get a cut, that cut will heal. If you stub your toe, it might feel bruised and swollen but the inflammation will subside, and you’ll feel better in a little while. Even a broken bone will mend if properly set.

But if hearing is damaged what happens. Is it possible for the inner ear to heal? Will your hearing come back? Can homeopathic treatments enable that healing?

What is the conceptual basis for homeopathic medicine?

The basic concept is that homeopathic medicine is natural. The philosophy suggests that you’re treating the person and not just the sickness. Essentially, 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 quicker than otherwise possible.

What is homeopathic medicine made of?

The prefix “Homeo” means “like” and the root 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 seem strange.”

But it’s called that because it uses compounds like nightshade and arsenic which would be unsafe in large amounts. Homeopathic advocates think that by using these substances in very small amounts, a natural healing process is induced.

Some people believe in homeopathic treatments and other people don’t. It’s not something that you can easily convince people of one way or the other. We need to investigate why homeopathic remedies 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 substantial harm.

How hearing works

The inner ear is shaped like a snail shell, known as the cochlea. This structure has tiny hairs called cilia. These hair cells vibrate rhythmically with the sound waves that are created when something makes a noise. The way 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 words and letters are being spoken can also be differentiated.

There are thousands of these little hairs in your ears when you’re a newborn. But these hairs disintegrate as you age and your ears are exposed to infections, loud noises, and other risks. They bend over. They break. They 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 little 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 safeguarding your ears is so important.

Homeopathy and Hearing

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