Ayurveda/Sensoneurinal Hearing Loss


I am 27 year old and suffering from sudden hearing loss in right ear with tinnitus since 4/4/2012. I consulted ENT doctor and got to know that I am suffering from senso-neurinal hearing loss. On 4/4/2012 I had hearing loss of 100 db as per audiogram tests. After dose of steroids(Inj. Methyl Prednisolone for 3 days, my hearing loss reduced upto 75 db. Doctor said there is profound hearing loss in right ear. As per doctor, DPOAE showed right outer cell dysfunction. and ASSR revealed no evident retrocochlear patology noticed.

After 3 days, I got discharged and doctor advised medicines for 1 month in which dose of medrol was present but kept on reducing the dose as we cannot continue steroids for more than 1 month. Hearing loss reduced to 55 db after 1 month.

At this time , I am not sure whether it has reduced or increased but I feel my hearing has reduced in past 2-3 weeks.

Also I took Homeopathy medicine for almost 2 months but discontinued it after it.

Since last 2 weeks, there is some pain in my right affected ear and also I visited physician who gave some medicine and soliwax after which I took out wax from right ear. but again there is wax and also pain in right ear. It happened before 1-2 monht back but after few days some black substance started coming and pain disappeared after that substance came out completely. This time also I feel there is some substance inside ear but everyday I am taking out some wax but again its getting produced there.. :(

History - I am having Rheumatoid arthritis(Juvenile) from the age of 15 years and usually it returns sometimes after 2/3 years. Also If I caught cold then it takes slightly long time to recover from it. Before(1 month prior) Sudden Hearing Loss, I had cold for almost 2-3 weeks.
My age is 27 years, Height - 5.5, weight - around 58 Kg.

Please suggest If I can recover from this hearing loss with some good Ayurveda medicines.

Hi Nik,

Greetings !

In such SE deafness/hearing loss no Ayurveda medicines works.But according to your history it seems that it is because of excessive Kapha vitiation in the ear.So i will request you to take following medicines for 2-3 weeks and let me know.
Saaribadi vati 2 tabs with warm water twice a day one hour before food.
Kapha ketu rasa 2 tabs with hot water after food.
Anu thailam 2 drops to be instilled in each nostril after bath.

These medicines are very safe so you can try with out any doubt.
