Today in our blog post we are looking at the misery that tinnitus can bring to people, and methods you can use to ease the discomfort. There is a good article on the Age UK website which gives details of number of strategies you can try to help with the condition, and these include mobile phone apps, your diet, yoga, breathing exercises and counselling.

A couple of weeks ago Channel 4 started to show what was known as an `accessible ad break` where each ad was fully signed by deaf actor and artist David Ellington, and an audio described version of the ad is available on the `Watch Live` section of All 4.

There have been some recent studies which have come to the conclusion that keeping your brain fit and agile is important in minimising the effects of hearing loss. Keeping your brain active can of course help your general state of health too, and is useful in warding off such illnesses as dementia, and there does seem to be a likely link between dementia and hearing loss, as hearing loss can speed up the loss of brain tissue.
There has recently been a fascinating study in the Journal Of Experimental Biology where they have been researching to see if the sea anemone`s incredible ability to heal themselves can be transferred into restoring hearing loss in humans. It is hoped that the proteins that an anemone uses to heal itself after tearing itself in two to reproduce itself can be used to repair damaged cells on humans. These proteins have already been used on mice`s sound- sensing cells to very good effect so this is a possible breakthrough for the restoration of hair loss.
On the 1st August 2016 the Accessible Information Standard was launched in the UK which has been received with great delight by charities such as Action on Hearing Loss.

Ear wax is not just an inconvenience to people, something that blocks up the ear, it is actually an important part of your ear as it is a protective film against dirt and bacteria and therefore helps to prevent infection. Ear wax is a natural secretion in the ear, formed from skin cells and oily secretions from glands in the ear canal, and as well as preventing infection it keeps the ear canal lubricated and stops it drying out.
