I am sure you are using any kind of amplification, if not then go for it immediately as reduced auditory stimulus to brain can limit adequate brain development.

Regain Your Hearing With Hearing Aids

Loss or impairment of hearing can happen due to a variety of causes and may be temporary or permanent in nature, depending on the type and severity of the condition. One of the most common causes of hearing impairment is age. The degeneration of one's vital organs and senses becomes a reality for many people as the advancement of age happens, and the delicate insides of the ears are no different. Noise pollution, injury to the ear drum or any other part of the ear, as well as the movement of particles inside are only a few of the many reasons for loss of hearing. One of the many ways of dealing with long term hearing impairment is by using a hearing aid. Read on to know how you can regain your hearing with hearing aids.

1. Long Forgotten Sound: A hearing aid will help you reacquaint yourself with long forgotten and subtle sounds that you may not have been able to hear for a long time. Many times, this kind of impairment also makes us forget to notice the fact that we do not hear so many normal sounds in our everyday lives - sounds that we probably did not notice even earlier. This may include the whirring of a fan, the whoosh of the air, the pitter patter of pets' feet and so much more. A hearing aid will help in bringing about an adjustment to these sounds that you will actually end up discovering again.

2. Technicalities: The hearing aid basically works by letting your hearing and ears readjust to the various volumes, intensity and vibrations that one feels when different sounds reach the ears. This helps in hearing better.

3. Amplification: A hearing aid is basically an electroacoustic device that fits in neatly behind your ear where it is tucked away from plain sight. This device helps in amplifying sounds so that you can catch them and hear them more clearly.

4. Modulation: The ENT specialist will usually prescribe a certain kind of hearing aid based on your individual condition in terms of volume, size, power and circulation. These factors help in modulating the sounds in a certain way so that they reach the nerve pathways from the inner ear and travel to the brain in a proper and effective way. This is usually done in a customised way to cater to the specific type and cause of your hearing loss.

Using a hearing aid is a matter of retraining your hearing rather than restoring it completely. These aids will be helpful in regaining a better sense of hearing within the condition you are going through, rather than reversing the condition completely.

My father 50years, is facing the hearing issues. We have to speak multiple times or loudly at tyms when calling from a distance. As per the doctors here, ear machines is the only cure. I wanted to know if there is any alternative? Time no bar. We can spend time in yoga, physio but not looking up for hearing aid.

Unfortunately there is no other cure for sensorineural (hearing nerve related) loss. Yoga and physio have no role to play. Your father needs audiometry followed by hearing aid trial and fitting. He will only grow deafer with time and soon even hearing aids won't help much. Deafness leads to social isolation and dementia over a course of time.

My mother is 48 years old and she is unable to hear slowly she is hearing very loudly. Please suggest me the solution. Operation/ lager treatment/hearing machine. What is the better for her. She is suffering from last 8 yrs.

Get the t hearing test done first. The most possible kind of loss that the report will show is sensorineural type of loss. In which surgeries /medicines/laser nothing works as effective as hearing aids. As she is suffering from last 8 years better to go for hearing aids soon possible. Otherwise later her understanding ability will be worse for sure even after using hearing aids.

Decreased hearing on one side or both sides: proper microscopic examination of ear is required. Also edscopic exam of ear may add some findings. Tunning fork test, pure tone audiometry, impedence audiometry etc will help to come to diagnosis. Deafness can be due to edema, wax or fixation of ear bones of hearing or subluxation of it, may be due to hole in drum or may be due to nerve deafness. You may require surgery.

I want to know hearing song in headphone in low volume for 2 to 3 hr. continually is effective for hearing very much.

Better you play that song in your mobile, keep that on the table. Using headphone has an adverse effect on hearing moreover it may irritate the skin. So from both point of view you better go for hearing it frm far away from your earcanal.

Hi generally we understand hearing in frequencies and hertz. Our day to day activities includes different sounds in which speech is one of the important things we hear. Different sounds are at different frequences. So if we have hearing with in that range of these sounds only then we can hear these particular sounds if not we miss them or sometimes we even miss particpular words or sounds in the spoken speech. You seem to have hearing loss. Consult an audiologist who would assist you with the tests required and may explain you in detail about your hearing.

Hearing loss can be conductive due to problem in sound conduction pathway by ear drum or ear ossicles(bones) or neural deafness that can be diagnosed by an audiometry.If it comes out to be conductive, can be treated by surgery and if neural then it will require hearing aid.

Hearing loss can be because of a number of reasons like wax, fluid collection behind the ear drum , nerve deafness etc. Get her shown to an ENT specialist as soon as possible to ascertain the cause & start the treatment.
