Can a pill cure deafness?

What if taking a pill could restore your hearing ? Strangely enough, for certain types of hearing loss, it's possible.

Researchers have found that exposure to intense noise causes increased free radical activity in the sensory hair cells of your inner ear. These free radicals attack the hair cells and can damage or destroy them, resulting in hearing loss or deafness.

By building up the level of certain antioxidants by using an antioxidant-enhancing drug before or shortly after exposure to damaging noise, doctors have been able to prevent and even reverse some of the damage. The antioxidant drug essentially takes on the destructive free radicals and keeps them from damaging your ears.

Scientists have also learned that magnesium is vital to hearing. The more you are exposed to loud noise, the more you are drained of your magnesium, and the more susceptible to damage your ears become.

One study measured the hearing of 320 soldiers in training under extreme noise conditions over two months. Half the soldiers took 700 milligrams (mg) of magnesium a day, about twice the RDA, and the other half didn't. Those who took the magnesium ended up with about half the hearing loss of the others.

While the antioxidant-enhancing drug is not yet available to the public, some experts believe preventive and healing pills for treating hearing loss are no more than a year or two away.
