Treatment of SNHL with Ayurvedic Remedies


The outer, middle, and inner ear make up your ear. Inner ear damage causes sensorineural hearing loss, also known as SNHL. SNHL can also be caused by issues with the nerve pathways connecting your inner ear and brain. It may be difficult to hear soft sounds. Even louder sounds can be muddy or indistinct. Hearing loss caused by sensorineural hearing loss is irreversible. When there is a lot of background noise, it might be difficult to pick out words. Aging and continuous exposure to loud noise are two factors that contribute to hearing loss in adults. Congenital defects or infections are among the reasons in children and newborns. According to Ayurveda, deafness or loss of hearing is caused by vitiated Vayu involving the shabda-Vaha-Srotas, and this state is known as Karna Badhirya.

The majority of hearing loss is caused by either a vata dosha disturbance or a vata-kapha vitiation. The key etiological elements are avashyaya (cold), jalakreeda (swimming), and vardhakya (senility), which result in the vitiation of vata and kapha dosha. Damage to the auditory nerve and nerve endings caused by vata vitiation can result in hearing loss and ringing in the ears. When kapha becomes vitiated, the sound channel becomes obstructed. Finally, vata and kapha abnormalities can influence the auditory nerve, resulting in degeneration of the hearing end organs or obstructions to nerve impulse passage, culminating in presbycusis.

What are the main causes and symptoms of SNHL?

Infections can be caused by diseases such as stroke, high blood pressure, and diabetes, which disrupt the flow of blood into the inner ear. Hearing loss can be caused by bone growth or malignancies in the outer or middle ear. The gradual buildup of earwax, which covers the ear canal, stops sound waves from being transmitted, whether it’s a head or ear injury, eardrum rupture, or noise exposure over a lengthy period of time. Prevention of heredity can be brought about by avoiding loud noise or reducing exposure time. Lawn mowers, food mixers, and hair dryers are all examples of unsafe noise. Wherever you are exposed to dangerous noise levels, use ear protection such as ear plugs or ear muffs. Avoid inserting objects into your ear.

Presbycusis is one of many socio-medical issues that is seen as a hidden handicap. It is a term used to describe hearing loss in the elderly. Hearing loss is a common issue among the elderly, and a person with hearing loss may be unable to hear doorbells and alarms, respond while conversing with others, and so on. They may get dissatisfied, lonely, and sad as a result of all of this. After arthritis and hypertensive illnesses, it is the third most frequent chronic condition among the elderly. Hearing loss occurs in the majority of presbycusis cases as a result of inner ear degeneration, namely the portion of the inner ear containing microscopic blood vessels. Hair cells undergo additional alterations, which are followed by cell loss and a worsening of hearing impairments.

Ayurvedic Home remedies

After shredding a raw onion, squeeze the juice and use it as ear drops on a daily basis. Do not attempt this without first visiting an ENT professional, as the results are highly case specific. Hearing loss can be treated with neem oil, which is a very effective home medicine. After contacting a doctor, apply 2-3 drops of tepid lukewarm neem oil to the affected area. Suhaga (Borax) may be poured into the ear, followed by 4-5 drops of lemon juice. In the ear, mix Adrak (ginger) juice with natural honey and caste. Fresh Tulsi (Holy basil, Ocimum sanctum) leaf juice can also be used in the affected ear in a dose of 4-5 drops. 1 tsp sesame oil, to be combined with fried garlic 5–10 drops (of body-temperature oil) into each ear. This improves the auditory nerve’s ability to hear.
