Health and happiness are two sides of human life that are firmly interconnected. Without one, there will be no second. Unfortunately, today a healthy person who has lived a long and happy life is a rarity.
In so many subtle ways, our eyes and ears work in tandem as a team. For example, when you close your eyes, what do you see? What passes before your shut eyes likely depends on the sounds you hear.
Naturally, when we think of hearing health, we tend to focus on physical hearing loss. But hearing health has been connected to so much more, including increased risk of falls, emotional or psychological issues, cardiovascular issues, and even diabetes.
Studies confirm what common sense has told you about hearing or the lack thereof—people who experience hearing loss are at higher risk of developing memory and cognitive issues.
Hearing connects us. We live in a visual world. Vision, typically viewed as your primary sense, tops the priority list for many people. Hearing on the other hand, tends to be underappreciated.
The body in its entirety is self-cleaning. It means even the most internal or hidden of organs have a way of removing foreign bodies. Take the ears for example. They produce wax that traps dust and any other unknown object going into the ear.
