When asked the impossible question “Which sense do you appreciate more: sight or sound?” most people initially respond with “sight.” After a few moments of reflection on what our sense of hearing enables us to enjoy, however, many individuals retract their answer and are simply unable to choose one sense over the other. They say they couldn’t live without hearing the affectionate words spoken by their loved ones, while others would miss the soothing sounds of birds singing, trees rustling in the breeze or a rushing waterfall. How about you? No doubt we all want to safeguard our precious ability to hear, and below are a few ways to help accomplish that goal.
Clean Out Your Ears
Although wax actually protects the ears from harm by outside elements, it can build up to excess and diminish the ability to hear. In that case a homeopathic product like Similasan Ear Wax Relief can be used occasionally to soften, loosen and remove excessive earwax, and it may even relieve ringing in the ears if it’s caused by earwax.
Nutritional Support for Ear Health
- Ginkgo biloba—Increases circulation to the head, delivering oxygen and nutrients to the ear cells.
- Zinc—Quickens immune response, and this in turn promotes ear health.
