As someone who listens to their music sound, while I am clanging some weights around, a problem that I know some of you have. Since I can remember, I have always heard two things regarding my hearing that have scared me for about thirty years. I was told that hearing had everything to do with the ear itself and once that hearing is gone, it doesn’t come back. I’m now able to actually rest a little easier knowing that studies are showing that hearing damage is, indeed, reversible. As to how much hearing you can recover, that will depend on many other factors but knowing that we can turn back the clock, through a healthier diet, is motivation enough for me to change up the way that I eat. I hope you’re sitting down for this next fact because it took me a few minutes to process it, that is how odd it sounds.
The fact is this: your hearing loss is not the fault of your ear, it doesn’t get damaged in that way, without something causing trauma to it. Yes, the hearing loss that we can experience is from our brains aging, not our ears. The sensation of hearing becoming diminished is because the brain is starting to have some difficulties in the job that it needs to do. One of the vitamins that can be the most helpful for bringing back some of your hearing would be vitamin A. One delicious way to get some more vitamin A into your daily meals would be through sweet potatoes. If you haven’t tried them before, get ready for a treat, sweet potatoes could actually pass a dessert because they are that good.
Of course, I enjoy my sweet potatoes with a very large amount of butter, so if you are watching calories, you may just want to make them plain. Even if you don’t choose to load your sweet potatoes up with butter, they still taste great plain. Up next, as another great source of the hearing healing vitamin A would come from mangoes. While it is a fruit, this one isn’t that sour and actually has a sweeter taste to it, if you mind the prepping process. Be warned, if you are preparing a mango for the first time, they can be quite difficult to cut up but are worth the time that you will spend on them. You don’t need to only eat the past two foods that I spoke of, if you get one hundred percent of the daily amount of vitamin A, your hearing is well on it’s way to slowly being repaired. The rate at which you noticed improved hearing will vary from person to person but lifting those weights with loud music will leave you with ears that could probably use some vitamin A.
It seems too good to be true but, as fate would have it, you could actually repair the hearing loss that you have undergone, with a handful of different foods. The last kind of damage that you want to cause would be any to your ears so, no matter how pumped up you are feeling, try to keep your headphone volume down reasonably low. If there is one thing that I have learned, when you start lifting to loud music, your ears adjust and because you want more intensity, it stands to reason that you will eventually turn it up even louder.
