Excerpt – Our hearing is the only one of our senses that is constantly active.
It plays an important role from the very first moments of life, allowing
us to hear language, understand and develop.
Excerpt – The ear – even more than the eye – is our most sensitive sensory organ.
The better we hear, the easier it is to actively engage with the world.
Our sense of hearing works around the clock, for our whole life.
Excerpt – Throughout our lives we are bombarded with a steady stream of sound;
in school, at home, at work and out in nature. Sometimes these sounds get
so loud that they begin to damage our hearing.
Excerpt – The fact is that the sounds will reach one ear fractionally faster and
louder than the other – and your brain registers these subtle differences. That is why, if you have a hearing loss in both ears, it is best to get two hearing instruments, because they make sounds easier to locate.
Excerpt – A hearing loss is like any other important health related issue; it should
not be neglected. Even a mild hearing problem can cause you to retreat from the world around you. Studies show that untreated hearing loss can have a negative effect on your health and attitude, even resulting in stress, depression, isolation and reduced learning power.
Excerpt – Taking the first step is the most important thing you can do. Get in
