Hearing health can be a finicky thing. There may be some things you are doing right now that you didn’t know could be damaging your hearing.

  1. Not getting enough sleep – Getting a good night’s sleep can be a challenge sometimes, but did you know that sleep helps your ears to recover from the day’s sounds? You may want to make sure you are hitting the hay at a decent hour each night.
  2. Smoking – Nicotine restricts blood flow and good blood flow is vital to helping your hearing stay strong. Find the opportunity to quit and your overall health, not just your hearing, will thank you.
  3. Not taking care of your teeth – Bacteria that builds up in an unhealthy mouth can lead to infection. This can also lead to restricted blood flow to the ears.
  4. Not eating enough vegetables – Good eating will help your circulatory system work better meaning the blood flow to your ears will be nice and smooth.

You’ll notice that it’s important to keep your overall health in ship shape to keep your ears working strong. Today is a great day to make any of these simple changes to keep the hearing you have at its best.

  1. So important to get hearing aids when you need them. It not only helps you but all the people around you. With declining hearing you miss so much of the world around you. The 4 steps mentioned are easy to do so get to it. Do not miss out on talking to people on the phone. CaptionCall is a great service to those of us with serious hearing problems that cannot hear on a regular phone. I have had my phone for 2 years and it is such a joy and a necessity for me to aid in calling. Thanks for the hints and the phone.

  2. My son bought me an expensive fancy phone that has all kinds of bells and whistles. Volume control, tone control. “slow”, speaker, etc. I have hearing aids but using the phone is still very frustrating. Most of the time I cannot understand what is being said even after pressing all the correct buttons. I am 90 years old, live in an Assisted Living facility, have quite a lot of living situations that require the use of a phone. I have a computer, am on the internet so do as much as I can with email but everyone doesn’t have email. My phone does not do text messages. Am very interested in Caption Call.
