Doctor mujhe kuchh dino se mouth me namak ka swad bilkul fika lag raha hai jabki baki sab cheezon ka swad bilkul theek lag raha hai. Iska kya karan ho sakta hai or kya upchar hai ?

Jivha bodhak kapha ka sthan hai. namak ka swad nahi lag raha iska matlab, kapha ka vikar hai. Sabse pehle vaman karma karvaiye, uske baad gandush aur kaval dharan. Kuchh hi dino mein aaram aa jaega. Kisi panchakarma expert ki rai lein ya hamein call karein.

I have hearing loss problem and using hearing aid from last 25 years. How I can improve my hearing capacity ?

Hearing loss can be conductive and sensorineural, or conductive hearing loss there are options available but sensorineural hearing loss is irreversible. Get a pure tone audiometry done and review with reports to nearby ENT specialist.

Because his request are completed by non verbal actions. You have to make him speak by ignoring his activities. Leaving him in children of similar age group will be useful. Correct his words & pronunciations when needed. Never imitate childs voice & words for joy.

Five Ayurvedic Tips To Improve Hearing

Five Ayurvedic Tips To Improve Hearing

Proper and sound hearing is essential for a healthy living. If you are suffering from lack or loss of hearing, chances are that you are missing out on life itself. Therefore, it is imperative that you undergo treatments in case you are suffering from any kind of hearing ailment.

There are various reasons that contribute to loss of hearing. Some of the common causes are:

  1. Age
  2. Increasing noise
  3. Genetically inherited

Over the years various surgical and non-surgical methods have surfaced that can help repair loss of hearing and damage. Among the other branches of medicines, Ayurveda is the most old and ancient method. It uses natural herbs in order to correct and treat hearing loss. This has proved to be extremely beneficial and potent and it cures hearing ailments with the help of a number of natural methods. Some of them are:

  1. Lukewarm mustard oil or sesame oil: If you are suffering from ache in ears or loss in hearing, try putting few drops of warm mustard oil and sesame oil in your ear and hold it with index fingers. At the same time store air in your mouth and let your cheeks contract and bulge for a minute or so. This ayurvedic tip considerably improves hearing and reduces ear pain.
  2. Radish juice and sesame oil: If you are suffering from sores and hearing problems, a mixture of the two can be beneficial. In this method, a small quantity of Radish juice should be boiled with a small quantity of sesame oil, till the juice absorbs the oil. This mixture should be administered twice a day in order to experience the results.
  3. Applewood oil: A variety of ingredients are required in order to create the resultant oil. Initially cow's urine should be boiled and the applewood powder must be added to it. This mixture should then be filtered and further added with sesame and goat's milk. This concoction is then boiled and the resultant oil should be stored and applied with cotton daily. This improves hearing a great deal.
  4. Mixture of neem and turmeric: In this method turmeric and neem leaves are boiled together. The steam should be taken as well as the water must be applied on the ears and surrounding areas. This has proved to be an extremely effective remedy in treating pus in the ears and consequent hearing loss.
  5. Mixture of Radish juice, turmeric, sesame oil and ajwain seeds: All these ingredients must be taken in selective quantities and boiled to get the resultant oil. This oil must be stored and used to treat loss of hearing and other ear diseases.

Yes fortunately nerve weakness cannot be cured. Depending on your type and degree of loss audiologist will suggest you a suitable hearing aid as per your need. Use of hearing aid will keep nerve and brain cells active, hence further progression will slow down. Hearing aid doesn't cure hearing problem, it is just an aid to reduce it's effect.

Hi Mr. Lybrate-user, as per the details provided I presume that your wife must be diagnosed to have sensory neural hearing loss. Regard the pain you need to rule out if there are any other ear conditions with a good ent but regard the hearing loss like you are already aware from other professionals that it cannot be reversed which is very true, if it really bothering your wife in terms of hearing you need to go for a hearing aid on the affected side.

What are symptoms for hearing loss. How we can protect our ears from hearing loss?

Bachelor of Audiology & Speech Language Pathology (B.A.S.L.P)
Audiologist, Delhi
Hi, its a good question. As we all know that prevention is better than cure, so it is your sole responsibility to protect your ear from detrimental effects of certain antibiotics, noise exposure, loud music etc. There are many symptoms of hearing loss including tinnitus, frequent infections, poor blood supply to cochlea, and many more. So try to avoid harmful situations that can create a major effect on your hearing status.
