Could learning languages and listening to over-dubbed audio could h elp with hearing loss? - #hearingloss #health #aging #fitness #languages

I can't much about this yet, but I'm going to look into it further.
There are hints. For example, language instruction may help with
learning&listening skills. For the hardware minded, you need an audio
compressor to make quality over-dubs. Language and has been studied
mainly in children. The subject is pregnant with intimation, but nothing
substantive. According to this article, the ability to learn languages
does not decline with age.

The article contains a reference regarding accommodations to
hearing-impaired language learners.

The idea that learning could affect hearing probably violates certain
dogmas. For age-related hearing loss, there are reasons to believe that
learning could help.

Of course, all of these arguments could also apply to training on a new
musical instrument. Here is a example of the kind of thing I'm
talking about from the article.

The development of the receptive skills (particularly listening)
before the productive skills may have much to offer the older
learner.

Tantalizing that language or musical training could reverse the early
onset stage. The idea is that the rudiments of age-related hearing
loss could be present in the brain before symptoms appear. Such mild
cases might be reversed by cognitive training, like language or musical
instrument learning.

Unlike languages, there is already much evidence that musical training
can help For many of us, the idea that hearing and listening skills can
be cultivated is the most tantalizing. We really need an anti-aging
strategy for our ears.

    One of the biggest problems with multivitamins is there is no real standard in the industry, and no substantial regulation. The contents of multivitamins are, therefore, quite varied, and greatly depend on the brand you choose.

    One of the major discrepancies between the multivitamin options on the market is whether the ingredients are derived from whole foods or are synthetic, i.e. made from foods grown on a farm or substances created in a laboratory by scientists in white coats and latex gloves.

    The reality is that nobody really knows how these synthetic substances will affect the human body in the long-term, and whether there will be an inter-generational effect.What we do know is that some of the synthetic substances used in many multivitamin products are actually different to their natural counterparts.

    This is one of the reasons why NatureKue(naturekue.com/)only uses natural ingredients. They are pharmaceutical grade, of course, but they come from mother nature, not the lab. Their new all natural herbal formulations make them the best choice (clinically proven) for dietary supplement currently on the market, not mentioning the quality is also top notch.
