Hearing Loss In Children And Its Treatment In Ayurveda


The ears are a very important organ of our body that help us to communicate with others by listening to them. Sounds entering the ear are processed by the brain, which controls speech, language development, and memory. The ear also provides the brain with balanced information. Hearing is essential for everyday communication. What if one cannot hear? Hearing loss in children is of great concern. According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), it is estimated that over 700 million people will have disabling Hearing loss. In this article, we will discuss various causes, symptoms, and methods to deal with this condition in Ayurveda.


Hearing loss can be described as complete or significant loss of hearing at the threshold of 20 dB. The children are affected by hearing loss that can be sudden or slowly increasing in hearing loss. There are many causes for this condition, the symptoms can vary and a diagnosis is made to rule out the exact cause of hearing loss.

Hearing Loss In Children

Hearing loss is categorized into

  1. Conductive Hearing loss– Problem in external, middle, or both ear pathways.
  2. Sensorineural Hearing loss–  Problem within the cochlea or neural pathway.
  3. Mixed Hearing loss– Includes both conductive and sensorineural Hearing loss.

Hearing loss is graded based on the severity of hearing loss

  • Mild Hearing loss- Stage 1
  • Moderate Hearing loss- Stage 2
  • Moderate Severe Hearing loss – Stage 3
  • Severe Hearing loss – Stage 4
  • Profound Hearing loss – Stage 5

The severity of hearing loss increases from stage 1 to stage 5 subsequently. The treatment is based on the severity of Hearing loss in the child. The less the severity, the more chances of easy recovery are assumed.

Ayurvedic Aspect

Karnn badhirya is the term for Hearing loss in Ayurveda. It is due to the imbalance of doshas in the body. The Vata dosha along with Kapha dosha blocks the ear pathway that inhibits the sound waves entering the ear. In some children due to beej dushti, the ears are not built up properly and they cause permanent hearing loss due to the inbuilt cause of deafness. But hearing loss can be differentiated from deafness based on doshas involvement. It can be cured with various therapies such as karn pooran with medicated oil and kshar. Herbal medications are also prescribed for better relief.

Herbal Remedy For Sensorineural Hearing Loss


Hearing is one of the important abilities that helps in receiving all the sounds and many of the people having hearing impairment. This not only affects the person suffering from the loss of hearing but also people surrounding them including relatives as well as friends. As it’s one of the crucial parts that helps in communicating and speaking with others. Along with that it increases the ability of understanding and developing intelligence. One of the main nerves that helps in hearing is the vestibulocochlear nerve by sending information to the inner ear from the brain. Disturbance of the nerve can lead to a severe problem known as Sensory Neural Hearing loss and in this article we are going to discuss it in detail along with its herbal treatment.

Sensorineural Hearing Loss

What is Sensorineural Hearing Loss

It is the type of hearing loss which results from the disturbance in the inner organ or the 8th cranial nerve also known as the vestibulocochlear nerve. In 90 percent of the cases the patient suffers from loss of hearing which could be moderate, severe, mild, total or profound. One of the main causes behind the sensory neural hearing loss is damage caused to the cochlear hair cells. It could happen during the birth where hair cells grow abnormally or are damaged while growing up due to some incident. These causes could be ototoxic drugs, infection or genetic mutation. One of the commonly seen symptoms of SNHL is difficulty in understanding voices on the phone or some of the voices seem too loud and they find that the other person is mumbling in spite of speaking loudly. There is no proven treatment for SNHL but can be managed through a few medications.

What are the Signs and Symptoms of SNHL

As our inner ear is not capable of directly examining through the instruments so the disease can be diagnosed through the audiometric testing and clinical features. Most of the patients suffering from SNHL show symptoms like hearing loss or 90 percent show diminished hearing, 49 percent show tinnitus or also said ringing inner ear and some show vertigo like problems. Other symptoms include

▪ Muffling while conversation
▪ Trouble in having a conversation with a group of people.
▪ Difficulty in hearing the high-pitched sound
▪ Problems in balancing the body
▪ Always hearing the buzzing or ringing sound in the ear
▪ Dizziness

What Causes SNHL

Here are some of the causes leading to Sensory Neural Hearing Loss and it divided into two categories including Acquired as well as Congenital

Acquired SNHL

This means that this type of hearing problem might be present since the time of birth, or maybe present at later stages of life. This includes

  • Loud Noise:- This is when hearing loss is induced by the loud noise like getting exposed to the noise caused by firing a gun or explosion. If you wear earrings after going to a concert then your hearing power is at risk.
  • Aging:- Another most common cause for the sensory loss of hearing is growing older which is commonly known as presbycusis. Almost everyone around the age of 65 to 74 and this can typically be seen in both the ears.
  • Tumors:- Some of the ones are cholesteatoma and acoustic neuroma where skin grows abnormally in the middle ear which causes hearing impairment.
  • Infection:- Measles, mumps and meningitis are the common type of viral infection which can result in sensory hearing loss.
  • Acoustic trauma:- This can be due to getting hit on the head or by loud voice and many of the veterans are commonly suffering from this as they are being exposed to firearms or jet engines.

Congenital SNHL

It is the type where the loss of hearing is caused during the pregnancy but is very rarely seen. Some of the other common causes include maternal diabetes, premature birth, gentical problem, loss of oxygen while giving birth or some kind of infectious disease passed on to a child by mother like rubella.

SNHL Diagnosis

It is very important to know the medical history as well as physical examination of the patient before diagnosing the disease.

During the physical examination different volumes of sounds are played to the patient. A test is performed with the help of a tunic fork where the vibration heard by the ear is measured.

Audiometry test is also one of the main tests that can determine the levels of hearing in the patient with SNHL.
