Improve Hearing Power By Yoga

It is said by a yoga teacher that by practicing each day a simple chant and a yoga exercise known as yawning, hearing loss can be helped. The chant makes use of a mantra that is a sound usually used in yoga meditation. To perform this exercise, you should be comfortably seated on a chair and start to breathe deeply. While you exhale, you should repeat one of the phrases loudly. Let the last note be held and the vibrations felt. It is suggested that you practice this exercise for two to three minutes daily.

It has been shown by studies that those who suffer from low hearing also have nutritional deficiencies. Therefore, make sure to consume foods that are rich in vitamin D as it helps absorb calcium, which is necessary for strong bones. A low level of vitamin D brings about osteopenia, which is a condition of the bones in the ears becoming porous. Also, be sure to consume foods rich in folic acid and vitamin B12.

How Yoga Improves Hearing?

The hearing of an individual depends on the ear receiving an excellent blood supply to the nerves in the organ. The nerves and blood vessels that supply blood to the ears go through or across the neck. However, due to hectic lifestyles, the neck can lose its flexibility, and there is a restriction of the supply of blood from the nerves to the ears. Practicing the different postures of yoga can help provide the neck with a good workout. By practicing yoga regularly, you can improve hearing.

Performing some breathing exercises can also be very effective in increasing the supply of blood to different parts of the body. Performing sessions of deep breathing for 20 minutes daily can help bring improvement to your hearing. An exercise called Yawning in yoga can help with hearing loss. Problems of hearing could also be due to a deficiency of zinc. Therefore, you should make sure that you get sufficient amounts of zinc through foods like lean meat and seafood or through nutritional supplements. Supplements that contain zinc and magnesium are considered to restore ear stability and help resolve the hearing problem. You should also make sure that your ears are clear of ear wax as it can interfere with hearing.

How Can One Improve The Hearing Through Yoga/Pranayam Of A Hearing Impaired Child?

A persons hearing depends mainly on a good supply of blood to the nerves in the ears. The nerves and blood vessels that bring blood to the ears pass through the neck. When life gets too stressful, the neck loses its flexibility, resulting in a restricted supply of blood to the ears. Therefore, when there is insufficient blood supply to the ears, the hearing will be affected. A hearing impaired child can therefore benefit by practicing some yoga postures that will help increase the blood supply to the ears and hence, improve hearing.

Some of the effective yoga poses for a hearing impaired child are Shirshasana (Headstand), Ardha Sarvangasana (Half Shoulder Stand), and Yoga Mudra. Yoga breathing exercises or Pranayama is also considered to be very effective in improving the supply of blood to different parts of the body, including the ears. Practicing some deep breathing exercises for around 20 minutes each day can bring about positive results in hearing. Along with the yoga exercises, it is also important that a hearing impaired child follows a proper diet. Sufficient amount of zinc should be taken in through foods like lean meats and sea food or by means of nutritional supplements.

If your problem with hearing has occurred recently, you should get checked by a doctor to identify the underlying problem that could be causing it. It is important that you avoid self medication techniques without consulting a doctor. The hearing of a person will depend on a good supply of blood to the nerves of the ear.

Should You Exercise When You Have Cold?

Since performing exercises can help improve the functioning of the immune system, it is considered to be safe to perform exercises when suffering from a cold. However, if you have a cold and you want to exercise, it is important that you pay attention to your body. At times, cold medications like decongestants can raise the heart rate, and when you exercise the heart rate is further increased. Therefore, combining the decongestants with exercise can make your heart pump hard. This can cause you to get shortness of breath or have breathing difficulty.

If you have a cold and asthma, it is important that you consult your doctor before exercising. If your asthma symptoms become worse with a cold, you will need to be careful. Performing exercise when you have asthma and a cold can increase the symptoms of respiratory problems like shortness of breath, wheezing, and coughing. When these symptoms occur, you may be required to take more asthma medication so that the airways can be opened. Using too much of asthma drugs can also raise your heart rate. If you have a cold with a fever, the exercises can be stressful to your body. Hence, it is important that you wait for a few days before you start with your regular routine.

Yoga For Hearing Loss

A low hearing problem could be due to clogged ears or an infection. Yoga can be practiced to cure clogged ears and earaches. Certain yoga postures can even be used to treat acute ear pain. A diagnosis of the main cause of the ear pain should be performed before using any type of medication. If there is an ear infection, then you must first bring about a healing to the infection before using any alternative treatment. An effective yoga exercise for the ears is yoga nidra in which you need to sit cross legged and perform breathing exercises. Another good yoga pose is Bhujangasana (Cobra Pose).

The food that you consume should have plenty of fiber in each meal. Some of the good sources of fiber are brown rice, oats and whole grains. Fiber helps in improving blood circulation throughout your body, including your ears. If your hearing problem is chronic, you should avoid saturated fat, particularly fried food and red meat. Eliminating saturated fat can reverse arteriosclerosis, which is a condition that can bring about hearing loss. If your wax problems or ear infections keep recurring, you can try a short juice fast to clear your body of excess mucus.

The vision and hearing of an individual is largely dependent on the eyes and ears that receive an excellent supply of blood to the nerves in these two organs. The blood vessels and the nerves that supply blood to the eyes and ears go across or through the neck. Due to stressful lifestyles and hectic schedule sometimes the neck becomes inflexible, and due to this condition the blood supply from the nerves to the eyes and ears become restricted. When the supply of blood is low to the organs, impairment is caused in the functioning of these organs thus affecting their capacity. The positions and poses in yoga help to exercise the neck and enhanced the present condition. Through regular exercise of yogasanas, better eyesight and improved hearing can take place. It is possible that the deficiency in zinc may be causing the problem of decreased hearing.
