How a Healthy Lifestyle Can Help You Prevent Loss of Hearing Power?

27-09-2022 |

Loss of hearing power is becoming a common issue even amongst youngsters due to various reasons. However, it can show very few symptoms and lead to complete loss of hearing power in the long term. Therefore, it is important to understand the causes and take effective actions to follow a healthy lifestyle to prevent such diseases. Apart from setting up a healthy lifestyle, it would be apt to invest in financial resources such as life insurance plans to secure yourself during an emergency to pay for any related treatment. Here is a detail to help you in this regard.

What Can Cause a Hearing Loss?


Hearing loss can happen in individuals due to several reasons. Therefore, it is important to get educated on the causes to prevent your ears from getting affected due to excessive damages that lead to hearing impairment. Some of the most important causes are:

  • Ageing
  • Consistent exposure to loud noises
  • Injury to the head
  • Hereditary
  • Tumour or any related critical illness
  • Diabetes


Medications that have side effects affecting your ears, etc. Suppose you are affected due to any or many of these causes. In that case, you can relate to symptoms such as feeling a sense of blockage, difficulty understanding regular conversations on the phone or otherwise, a tendency to increase the volume on TV always, a feeling of buzzing or ringing sound in the ears, etc. Therefore, you must consult your doctor for the right treatment and medication to prevent hearing loss later in life.

Healthy Lifestyle to Prevent Hearing Loss


We have seen some of the causes and symptoms of losing hearing power. However, prevention of hearing impairment is possible by following a healthy lifestyle. Here are a few ways to do it:

 

  • Prevention of excessive ear wax buildup - Ear wax is considered a natural defence mechanism that prevents the crucial inside lining of ears from foreign substances like bacteria or fungus. While a small amount of ear wax is beneficial, the excessive buildup can cause damage to your eardrums in the long term, cause discomfort and lead to hearing loss.

    Therefore, it is important to have periodical checkups with your doctor and get excessive wax removed from your ear. Do not use earbuds or any other instrument to remove the wax inside your ears by yourself. It can push the ear wax further inside, causing serious issues.

  • Quit smoking - Smoking is said to double the risk of hearing loss. Healthy blood flow and oxygen are important to maintaining a healthy inner ear, and both can get affected due to the intake of nicotine and carbon monoxide. It can affect the inner lining and affect the normal functioning of the ear muscles. Nicotine can also cause constant ringing in the ears, referred to as tinnitus, which causes extreme discomfort.

  • Turn down the volume in your surroundings - Reduce the volume from any electronic appliances to prevent deafness. For instance, when watching a movie or organising a party at home, ensure to reduce the volume to the required extent and have a comfortable environment to enjoy the day healthily. You can also avoid being near loudspeakers in a public gathering or a social get together to stay safe.

  • Yoga and meditation - Practising yoga every day can improve your hearing health. It can energise your breaths, help oxygen-rich blood reach your head actively, increase your attention on the sounds in the surrounding environment, etc. Meditate for a few minutes every day, listening to the minute sounds such as birds chirping, vehicles moving around, rain, etc., to feel rejuvenated and focus on your surroundings.

  • Have a healthy diet - Having foods rich in vitamins and minerals can help in improved ear functioning and hearing. For example, eating food rich in B vitamins can regulate fluid levels and optimise energy use. Folic acid can improve energy production in the cells responsible for hearing.

    Zinc protects the hair cells within the ear responsible for emitting vibrations that pass electric signals to your brain. Zinc can also boost your immune system and help prevent ear infections. And magnesium helps improve nerve function and prevent damage to your inner lining.

 

  •  Use ear protection devices - If your ears are susceptible to ear infections, use earplugs when swimming. And, if you are working in an environment surrounded by loud noises, use earplugs that can reduce the noise levels passing to your eardrums. Get smartphone applications that can detect high noise levels and warn you timely. Use good quality headphones or earphones while listening to music and ensure low volume.

 

Such healthy lifestyle practices are effective ways to prevent hearing loss. However, if the issue is linked to hereditary or a critical illness, you cannot help escaping from the symptoms and effects that lead to loss of hearing power. In such cases, you must be financially secure to manage an emergency or treatment to get the issue sorted.

Conclusion


Hearing power is important to every individual's life. So, you must have a healthy routine to prevent any infections or issues. We have seen some of the most common causes, symptoms and healthy practices that can prevent the causes from affecting your eardrums and your hearing power. You must incorporate such practices to ensure the best health for your ears, ear canals and inner tissues.
