Ayurvedic Treatment For Hearing loss

Ears are one of the five vital sense organs of body; no one can even imagine his or her life without them. Leading a life without this sense organ makes a life “NON SENSE”. In ayurveda hearing loss or deafness is termed as “Karna Badhirya”.

 

Classification of Hearing Loss

 

  1. Conductive Hearing loss: This type of hearing loss happens when sound wave is not reaching inner ear (cochlea).

  2. Sensorineural Hearing loss: This type of hearing loss is permanent and it is a dysfunction of inner ear (cochlea) or auditory nerve.

 

 

Prevalence of Hearing loss

 

Gradual loss of hearing ability is common with growing age. It is estimated that almost one-quarter of Americans between the ages of 65 and 75 and about three-quarters of those older than 75 have some degree of hearing loss.

 

Causes of Hearing Loss

 

  1. Ear infection

  2. Diseases like stroke, high blood pressure and diabetes may cause an infection, interrupting flow of blood into the inner ear

  3. Bone growth or tumors in the outer or middle ear can result in hearing loss

  4. Gradual building of earwax that blocks the ear canal and prevents conduction of sound waves.

  5. Injury to the head or the ear

  6. Ruptured eardrum

  7. Exposure to noise over a long period of time

  8. Heredity

 

 

Ayurvedic Etiology For Loss of Hearing

 

Ayurveda considers Loss of Hearing as Vata dosha vitiation. Ayurveda attributes deafness to the disturbance of Prana vata (one of the five types of vata doshas). With age, prana vata tends to get debilitated, leading to conductive or nerve deafness.

 

 

Symptoms of Hearing Loss

 

  1. Muffled hearing

  2. Difficulty in Listening to conversations especially against background noise or in the midst of crowds.

  3. Request to speak more slowly, clearly or loudly.

  4. Refraining from conversations and avoiding social gatherings.

  5. Need for turning up the volume of the TV or radio.

  6. Pain in the ear.

  7. Itching around the ear.

  8. Irritation

  9. Fluid leakage from the ear

 

Ayurvedic Remedy for Hearing Loss

 

  1. Two tablets of Sarivadi vati twice a day with luke warm water.

  2. Take 200mg of Yogaraj Guggulu for 3 times a day with warm water after each meal. This helps in pacifying the vata dosha and strengthens weakened nerves

  3. One tea spoon of sesame oil to be mixed with fried garlic. Pour 5 to 10 drops (of body-temperature oil) into the ear. This increases th`e hearing capacity of the auditory nerve

  4. Take 500 mg of herbs like Ashwagandha, Boswellia, and Guggulu for three times a day

 

 

Home Remedies for Hearing Loss

 

  1. Onion Juice for Hearing Loss: Don’t try this without consulting an ENT specialist as the results are totally case dependent. To use, grate raw onion and squeeze a juice out of it. Then use it as ear drops daily.

  2. Neem oil for hearing loss: This is quite a beneficial home remedy for hearing loss without any cons. Put 2-3 drops of warm lukewarm neem oil into the affected area but only after consulting a doctor.

 

Preventing Hearing Loss

 

  1. Avoid loud noise or reduce exposure time. The dangerous noise includes noise such as lawn mowers, food mixers and hair dryers.

  2. Ear protection such as ear plugs or ear muffs should be used wherever exposed to dangerous noise levels

  3. Avoid inserting objects into your ear

  4. Wear helmet when you ride a bike, ski diving or participate such activities that can cause ear injury.

  5. Vegan foods such as popcorn, corn chips, beans, raw vegetables, and cold drinks should be avoided.

i am suffering sudden hearing loss and tinnitus from 5th may 2004 in left side ear.there is any posibility for improve my ear.
by chandra Prakash     07-Jul-2012
Dear CHANDRA PRAKASH Before suggesting you any treatment i would recommend you to go for clinical evaluation as in your case the hearing loss seems to be chronic. Also it is better to get the condition diagnosed as you can already see that the hearing loss can be of many types. If you have got the diagnosis then reply with your diagnosis so that we can tell you the herbal treatment. In most of the cases the hearing loss can be due to infection, so medications can be effective otherwise a simple surgery is performed where small tube in inserted into the ear and the fluid is drained out. If no treatment works then at last you can go for cochlear implant or bone anchored hearing aid.

Hi i am Hanumanth from Hyderabad. I had hearing problem developed in the recent years because of severe typhoid attack in 2000 which made me bed ridden for 3 months. I am facing severe difficulties and lot of insults at office and society. kindly guide me any ayurvedic treatment remedy for my problem
by Hanumanth     29-Jul-2012
Dear HANUMANTH, Since your problem of hearing loss is due to typhoid so before starting of the treatment advised by us, we would recommend you to consult an ENT specialist. Hearing loss management is though tough but not impossible. The first step is to manage the conditions leading to hearing loss. Here are the ayurvedic herbs helpful to cure hearing loss... Amla, Harar, Pipli , Ashwagandha, Shatawari, Madhuyashthi, Haridra, Giloy etc. Formulations like Sarivadi vati, Amlaki rasayana, Ashwgandha paka, Vardhman pipli, Laxmivilas rasa are very useful. Instillation of medicated oils like Anu taila in to the nostrils (nasya) and Bilwadi taila & sarshap taila in to the ears (karan purna) give very good results. But these procedures should be carried out under the supervision of an Ayurvedic expert only.

Dear DEEP, First of all my deep concern that you are suffering from this problem for such a long time. As you said that your hearing loss is due to nerve and cochlear involvment (in medical terminology it is termed as sensorineural hearing loss). The best treatment is such case is using an hearing aid to provide the amplification of sound. Also i would advise you to get your thyroid checked as sometimes this problem is also related to hypothyroidism. Anotheroption is cochlear implant. This implant is placed beneath the skin and into the inner ear or it can also be implanted directly into the brain. After the healing is over, an external devise is placed on the skin above the cochlear implant. Here are some tips to prevent hear loss or stabilize if already having: 1. Have your BP checked regularly and if hypertensive then take medications. 2. Maintain healthy eating and exercise

Dear Sir, Iam suffering from profound severe Hearing loss in my Left ear last 4yrs{hearing loss in left 91.3 db and my right ear is normal). i have tried in Allopathy medicines but iam not satisfied..still my problem persist.please help me Regards, senthilnathan,Chennai
by senthilnathan     20-Aug-2012
Dear SENTHILNATHAN, as there are many types of hearing loss like conductive, senorineural, mixed hearing loss or auditory neuropathy spectrum disorder. So,i would suggest you to get it checked for right diagnosis. Reason being the treatment for different hearing loss is different and it depends upon the degree of hearing loss. For sensorineural unilateral hearing loss (just presuming this type of hearing loss) the choice of treatment is: Contralateral routing of signal i.e. a device will be placed on your defective ear that will detect the sounds and divert them to the normal ear. Bone Anchored hearing implants: It transmits sounds via bone conductions and stimulates the cochlea of ear with normal hearing. So, my take home advise is to first get the correct diagnosis and then start with the treatment.
