Hearing is an indispensable ability in our lives, but now, for many reasons, some people's hearing is declining and it has a great impact on life. So, can hearing loss still recover? Let's take a look at the following.
Some of the factors that cause ear hearing loss are severe traumatic damage to the sound-transmitting nerves in the ear, or due to insufficient blood supply to the inner ear for a long time, there is a problem of long-term nutritional supply, which causes functional lesions in the ear. The decline is difficult to mitigate and recover.
Chinese medicine believes that the kidney is open to the ear, and the decline in hearing is often directly related to the kidney. Therefore, restoring hearing can eat some kidney-reinforcing foods such as
