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 abate, and you’ll feel better in a little while. Even a broken bone will heal if correctly set.

But what if your hearing is damaged? Does the inner ear heal itself? Will your hearing come back? Can homeopathic remedies facilitate that healing?

What is homeopathic medicine philosophy?

Homeopathy is considered natural medicine. The philosophy proposes that you’re treating the person and not only the sickness. The basic premise is that the human body should repair itself. People who believe in this think the body will heal quicker than normal if it is given the right encouragement.

What is homeopathic medicine made of?

“Homeo” means “like” and “pathy” has the word “disease” at its root. So the term homeopathy means “like a disease”. This probably sounds weird, after all, why would a cure be called “like a disease?”

This is because most homeopathic treatments use substances that are unsafe in large quantities like arsenic, nightshade, and even poison ivy. Homeopathic advocates believe that by administering these substances in very small amounts, a natural healing process is triggered.

While some discount homeopathy, others believe in its value. Usually, once a person develops an opinion about this, it’s difficult to change their mind. What we will address is why there are no homeopathic treatments for 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 looks like a snail shell, known as the cochlea. This structure has little hairs called cilia. These hair cells vibrate rhythmically with the sound waves that are created 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 distinguished as unique sounds. What letters and words are being spoken can also be distinguished.

There are thousands of these tiny hairs in your ears when you’re first born. But as you get older, your ears are exposed to loud sounds, infections, and other hazards that literally shake these tiny hair cells to pieces. 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 pick up high pitched sounds like birds chirping or the voices of little children. So if damage takes place, these are the first to go.

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

Homeopathy and Hearing

The body’s natural healing process is believed to be activated by homeopathic treatments. In the case of human hearing, there’s no natural healing process in place. When these hairs are gone, they never grow back.
