Hearlink believes in a truly comprehensive treatment plan when it comes to your hearing. We believe in treatments of all shapes and sizes, depending on your individual needs. Your treatment and recovery truly is an individual journey, which we’re here to support.


This means that we discuss a few different elements of treatment. The first is preventative treatment, understanding what variables you’re around on a day-to-day basis, which can impact the health of your ears. Turning down the music you listen to in your car, using ear-plugs if you work in a noisy office or work environment, these are preventative treatment options.


The second is what you turn to Hearlink for, most. Devices and resources, direct facetime with a dedicated hearing professional. We bring decades of experience in the field, directly to you.


Nutrients Which May Improve Your Hearing HealthThe third may come as the most surprising, but it’s what we want to focus on today—lifestyle adjustments. You may not think that sleep, exercise and food choices play into your health and comfort, but they do. Here are four nutrients, which may not only stave off future hearing loss, but help begin to heal damage that’s already in place:


Vitamin C: Vitamin C is kind of a rock star in the vitamin world, brining benefits to most areas of your body. Your ears are no exception as vitamin C protects hair cells in your cochlea which are 100% crucial to health and proper development. Bonus- vitamin C boosts your immune system health which can fight off ear infections. Look for vitamin C rich foods like oranges, broccoli and dark leafy greens like kale and spinach.

Vitamin B-12: Tinnitus, or persistent ringing in the ears, is one of the most common sorts of hearing loss. That’s not news. What is, is that, many of those impacted have demonstrated a deficiency in B vitamins, especially folate and vitamin B-12. Foods rich in these nutrients include spinach, sunflower seeds and almonds.

Vitamin E: As with many of the other nutrients here, vitamin E brings a lot to the table. It protects your skin, your fingernails, your hair and your connective tissues. Okay, okay, but what about your ears? Vitamin E improves the circulation and protects those very delicate hairs that are found inside your cochlea. Look for almonds, spinach, and avocado at your local supermarket.

Vitamin D: Vitamin D is extremely helpful when it comes to supporting your bone health. Despite what you may assume, your ears have bones too, small ones that are vital for you to hear properly. Foods rich in vitamin D include eggs, fish and most dairy products. 30 minutes in the sunshine can also give you a great boost. Just make sure that you’re wearing proper sun protection.


These are just the tip of the iceberg. There are all kinds of lifestyle adjustments you can make, to give your ears the proper tender loving care that they deserve. Reach out to your Hearlink professional for more ideas.
