KatsMeow.....If a hearing loss is the result of injury, disease or aging, it is highly unlikely it can be improved, without the help of hearing apparatus. There are some natural supplements that have been known to muffle the problem of "ringing in the ear."
If the hearing loss is temporary, due to active, low-grade infection and/or obstruction (which can be the case, without realizing it) it's most important to have your PCP refer you to an ENT specialist, for a thorough exam and some testing. Being proactive here, before hearing loss results.
As a final note, I will just say, that although actual "hearing loss" can very rarely be improved......"LISTENING SKILLS," can help. Ideally, the environment should be free from background noises. By relaxing and focusing on the speaker, while watching body language and mouth movement, you will catch much more of any conversation. Good luck!
I would like to hear about these natural supplements that actually "muffle" ringing of the ears, as my dad has had that most of his life. Tinnitus is not known to have a cure or an effective treatment, the last I heard - other than scams/gimmicks.
Insane Mundane: If tinnitus is NOT the result of Meniere's Disease,...your Dad may find some relief with a daily dose of these supplements, taken together, at bedtime: 30mg CoEnzyme Q10,
10mg. Manganese & 90mg Potassium. wishing good health!
I think it was caused by fireworks and loud guns being shot off near his ears at an early age, but I'll check on that, nonetheless.
This issue is so common. I have a good friend who has suffered with tinnitus since he came home from Viet Nam.......ARTILLERY. He has found some relief with those supplements....it's worth a try. Nuff said.
There is an ancient remedy, called Urine Therapy. It is quite powerful and it can even improve hearing. It was widely used in Europe, India and other parts of world.
My goodness! But it sure sounds like music to diabetics like me.
This is a complete fallacy. There is no scientific evidence that this works.
If urine therapy is what I think it means, I don't think it's going to catch on in North America.
There is one way of improving hearing and it is called Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). Basically, what this intervention says is that all physical manifestation of illness are due to emotional disturbance, which over a period of time becomes an ailment. EFT has also cured cancer, phobias, pains and many other ailments, and I am an avid user of the method. It is very easy to use, and you can read more about it from the following hub written by Rajan Jolly. Take a look:

The official website is:
There is also a free downloadable pdf document explaining EFT at the site. The methodology works and I vouch for it. Try it.

TheKatsMeow, that's a very general question. Improve whose hearing? As fpherj48 says, "If a hearing loss is the result of injury, disease or aging, it is highly unlikely it can be improved, without the help of hearing apparatus". For me, I always dig my ears, when my hearing deteriorates. It works every time!
Ignoring all artificial or medical solutions I suggest various holistic remedies, eg. yoga might work. I believe these work basically on the principle that the body can heal itself.
In4mative, but not if you have a pinhole in your ear drum, right?
Walterpoon, you might be interested to check this link to an NHS UK site.

Hi in4mative, thank you for your link. I'll check it out and come out with a hub, LOL.
I wish there were a way I could answer this question. If there is a way to improve hearing, I'd love to know about it. Suffering from Meniere's Disease all my life, I've been dealing with hearing loss as long as I can remember. As a child, I was fitted for hearing aids but the doctor said I had so much fluid in both ears that the hearing aids would short out. I've also suffered ten ruptured ear drums and thousands of infections. I've had five tubal surgeries, all to which damaged my hearing even more. I've researched the treatments for what I have and all leave me completely deaf in both ears. So I was faced with a decision: either lose my hearing now or suffer the problems of Meniere's and still have what's left of my dwindling hearing. The treatments, to me, were way too extreme and no matter what route I chose, I will ultimately lose my hearing. If there's a way to improve my hearing, I would be more than delighted to know about it. I just can't imagine my life without hearing music or the laughter of the people I love to make laugh. As a child, hearing that there's no true way to fix this problem is a pretty big deal and an awful lot for a four year old to truly grip. During my life, I've learned to read lips and always focus on one voice at a time, as difficult as it is. Hopefully, with the technology we have, in the future there will be no such thing as going deaf or blind. I only hope to see this miracle in my lifetime.
It really depends on one's situation and to the extent that the hearing is damaged.
Hearing loss can sometimes be caused by an underactive thyroid gland. Once that is rectified by Thyroxine supplements or natural desiccated thyroid the hearing should return to normal. Having the ears syringed to clear the wax can also help to improve hearing.
I believe it is unlikely if you have been exposed to loud music or sound. Once our ears are damaged, it will be hard to repair. Only solution will be using hearing aid that enhance the sound of hearing.
Yoga helps, try meditation too.
I know some people who have improved their hearing with yoga and practicing regular meditation.

I have tinnitus, which most nights causes sleep deprivation. I try to nap during the day to catch up on sleep. I rarely sleep more than two hours. This started about 6 months ago. My ear doctor recommended I get a sleep machine. Has anyone ever used a sleep machine to aid with ... uhmmm ... sleep?
