Strengthen Your Hearing At Home

Dealing with hearing loss can be frustrating, stressful, and expensive. Have you ever smiled or laughed while talking to a group of friends or family even though you weren’t sure what was said? Have you ever “skipped” going out to a restaurant or social gathering because it is too tiring and frustrating to try to keep up with conversations? According to the World Health Organization, there are hundreds of millions of people all over the world suffering from disabling hearing loss, but less than 20% of the people who can benefit from hearing aids actually own them.

Untreated hearing loss can have devastating effects on your personal relationships, career, and has been associated with other serious physical and mental health issues. Studies show that individuals with untreated hearing loss are three times more likely to fall, more likely to become isolated, depressed and according to a study from Johns Hopkins University, are up to five times more likely to develop dementia. Other comorbidities include high blood pressure, diabetes, cardiovascular, and thyroid disease. So why is it that people wait an average of over seven years before seeking help? The three most common reasons we hear are access and convenience, expense, and stigma.

So what causes age-related hearing loss (presbycusis)?

Age-related hearing loss occurs as we age and the inner ear cells become weakened or die. Genetics, exposure to noise, ototoxicity, and other factors all play a role in age-related hearing loss. The higher-pitched frequencies typically tend to weaken first and due to the gradual nature of hearing loss, they often go unnoticed in the beginning.

A novel new approach to hearing health.

The inventors and makers of the AudioCardio mobile app hope to help tackle this problem using a proprietary method and sound therapy. It can be done from the convenience of your own home as long as you have a quiet place to take your hearing test. The app allows you to do a hearing screening using a smartphone and headphones. The AudioCardio app will then create a custom sound therapy based on your unique hearing ability. It’s a daily exercise that they say can be done while gardening, listening to music, watching television, and can be used while going to sleep. The sound therapy is inaudible and will not disrupt your regular activities. You simply play it in the background.

“In a couple of weeks, I was able to hear sounds that I haven’t heard for years like a small bedside clock ticking, and the longer I use the app, the better I can hear. Perhaps most important, my understanding of speech is much better – something my wife greatly appreciates.” – JohnBobMS

The app comes with a free trial and most individuals will know if this hearing solution will work for them within two to three weeks. The app does not require expensive and time-consuming visits to a hearing specialist and at $14.99 per month, it is a far less invasive and less expensive option when compared to hearing aids and corrective surgeries.

If you are curious, you can check your hearing for free using the AudioCardio app. You can then use the AudioCardio sound therapy to train and exercise your hearing in hopes of improving your ability to understand conversations, listen to everyday sounds, and improve your hearing score.
