Hearing loss is a common issue that occurs as you age, as a result of exposure to powerful noise or due to infections of the internal or middle ear.
You can’t fight genetics nor pollution, but there are a couple of things you can do to counteract their effects. Your diet, lifestyle, and thoughts have a weighty word to say in your health – that has been proven time and again and this will be our focus, as always.
Improve Your Hearing
The chemicals and additives that are in the food on your plate build up in your cells, impeding them from a proper function. Avoid pre-cooked food as much as possible, as well as sodas.
One of the tricks that can help you figure out if what you’re eating is healthy and good enough is to ask yourself if that particular food can be found in nature or not. For example, broccoli, potatoes or cherries are obviously a gift from nature, whereas hamburgers are less likely to grow on trees.
While this is not always a guarantee that you will get all the nutrients your body needs, it helps you provide most of all there is.
Vitamin B complex
As I already told you, this complex feeds the nervous system. A lack of Niacin in particular will result in improper sending and receiving the signals from and towards the brain.
Actually, a couple of months ago a friend of mine told me his doctor told him he’s suffering from hypoacusis and that he needs special medication that might or might not help him recover his hearing. After a few minutes of talking, I realized that he didn’t have enough B Vitamins in his daily diet.
You can either get them as natural supplements or from green leafy vegetables (spinach, kale, cabbage, broccoli, parsley, etc.)
Use this practice as a form of release. Sometimes, your body stores too much stress and gets tensed, just like stretched out elastic.
- Close your eyes and breathe in and out slowly.
- Relax and focus your mind on your breath only.
- Do this exercise every day, in the morning, for ten times and once again in the evening, before going to bed.
This will improve your blood flow, which will help your hearing, as well as sleeping.
If you follow these three simple tips, not only your hearing will come back, but I’ll keep the rest of the amazing benefits for you to find out on your own!
