Yoga To Cure Sensorineural Hearing Loss Adults
My friend 18yr is havin type a bilaterally (bilateral sensorineural hearing loss) right ear is 20db-100db. Left ear is 20db-80db. Any suggestion to cure?
Consider hearing aid: Your numbers and description aren't quite right. I'm guessing there was a type a tympanogram, meaning no fluid and no conductive hearing loss. I'm guessing the there was an srt of 20 db in each ear, and an understanding score of 100% in the right ear and 80% on the left. The left ear needs further evaluation, recheck in 6 months. If having trouble hearing aids would be the best treatment. ...Read more
How do I improve my severe/profound sensorineural hearing loss naturally without the use of a hearing device?
No options: As the nerves in the inner ear are damaged and don't regenerate in mammals I am not aware of any herbal or nutritional treatment options. I assume that potentially treatable causes such as cochlear hydrops or autoimmune inner ear disease don't exist. Need to manage the loss and amplification is only option. Cochlear implants usually reserved for those who aren't benefitted with aids. ...Read more
