Discover 5 Simple Tips for Taking Care Of Your Hearing
My name is Sam Olsen.
I’m 65 years old and live in a small town near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, together with my dear wife, Daisy.
I want you to know right from the beginning that I’m not a doctor, nor a hearing aid specialist.
I recently retired after a 40 year career as a medicinal chemist. It’s a crucial job, as people who are sick rely on us for relief.
Now, as I near the end of my career, I want to share all the mountains of knowledge I’ve gathered all these years regarding hearing and how to take proper care of your ears…
Hearing loss isn’t fatal, but it can lead to a number of health-related issues down the line.
After all, ear care not only improves your hearing health, but your overall health as well.
You see, maintaining ear health is a lifelong process.
And taking steps to protect your hearing can help you enjoy music and conversation without strain, and having healthy ears might even enable you to have better balance and a reduced risk of accidents and falls in your senior years.
Here are some simple things you can do each day to help achieve that goal:
1. Use earplugs around loud noises
Approximately 15% of Americans have noise-induced hearing loss because of loud work or leisure environments
Clubs, concerts, lawnmowers, chainsaws, and any other noises that force you to shout so the person next to you can hear your voice all create dangerous levels of sound.
Earplugs are convenient and easy to obtain. You can even have a pair custom fitted for your ears by your local hearing healthcare provider.
2. Turn the volume down
According to the World Health Organization, 1.1 billion teenagers and young adults worldwide are at risk for noise-induced hearing loss from unsafe use of audio devices.
