Hearing and Your Health
Your hearing is an important part of your overall health and well-being. In fact, there is a direct connection between hearing and brain health. Your hearing helps your brain to stay active and healthy by sending sound signals to the brain to process into information. In fact, we don’t hear when sound enters our ears, we hear when the sound reaches the auditory cortex of the brain. When hearing loss is left untreated, your brain doesn’t receive the proper sound signals it needs to remain active. This can lead to a decline in cognitive abilities and can even cause more serious health issues such as dementia or Alzheimer’s.
Studies have proven a link between untreated hearing loss and Alzheimer’s. When you have hearing loss, you may lack the confidence to socialize with other people because you can’t hear well. This can lead to social isolation and feelings of loneliness. This can result in cognitive decline and can progress to more serious conditions such as dementia or Alzheimer’s. It’s important to take care of your hearing with hearing aids in order to keep your brain active and healthy, and to decrease your chances of developing a more serious health condition.
