- Protect the ears against loud noise: The use of soft earplugs or ear muffs can prevent permanent or temporary hearing loss. It is essential to wear protective plugs in certain professions to avoid excessive prolonged exposure to noise. For example, this is the case of people working on a construction site who are continuously exposed to jackhammers, carpenters to buzz saws, workers in airports to airplanes, gardeners to lawn mowers or farmers to tractors.
If you are working in an extremely noisy place, you should take a rest now and again. Leave it for a while for a few minutes in order your ears can take a rest.
Try listening to radios, television, cassettes, etc. with a moderate voice intensity. This is especially needed in small areas such as when listening to music in a car.
Do the same with your portable music player (Mp3, iPod or similar). Turn down the volume of your headphones. They can damage your ears seriously.
Music in discos or music bars is generally to loud. Try to protect your ears if you happen to go to these places. Do not remain there for too long without giving your ears a rest. Go out to a more silent place from time to time.
- Avoid taking aspirins or similar: Aspirin contains acetylsalicylic acid that can be responsible for hearing loss. All the same can be said for those herbs that contain the same principle (willow, meadowsweet and wintergreen)
- Make physical exercise: regular physical exercise improves blood circulation and helps to preserve hearing for longer.
