A step-by-step training program to improve your hearing through enhanced perception with all five senses
• Provides detailed instructions for 20 simple, practical exercises you can do at home to improve your hearing and train your senses
• Explains the connection between hearing loss and emotional stress and trauma
• Shares stories from people who have used this method to compensate for deafness in one ear, others who have been able to ditch their hearing aids completely, as well as the positive effect restored hearing has for patients with dementia and Alzheimer’s
Through hearing we are connected with everything that surrounds us. Yet millions of people, young and old, suffer from hearing loss, which disrupts this special connection not only with our surroundings but also with our friends, loved ones, and coworkers. As Anton Stucki reveals, onset hearing loss as well as other conditions of the ear canal, such as tinnitus, industrial hearing loss, and vertigo, are not part of our normal physiological aging process. The brain is naturally able to compensate for hearing loss, even in situations with loud background noise, yet as we age, we lose this adaptive ability.
In this step-by-step guide, Stucki explains his revolutionary hearing recovery system, complete with detailed instructions for 20 simple, practical exercises you can do at home to improve your hearing and train your senses. Drawing from physiology, biology, physics, psychology, trauma therapy, and brain research, he goes beyond the mechanical notion that damage in the ear is responsible for hearing loss and shows that hearing recovery is possible in many cases. He shares stories from people who used this method to compensate for deafness in one ear, even after multiple unsuccessful surgeries, and others who have been able to ditch their hearing aids completely as well as the positive effect restored hearing has for patients with dementia and Alzheimer’s. He explains how the program does not regenerate inner ear growth directly--the practices work by developing and training your perceptual system to be able to grasp whole meaning from incomplete or partially understood information. Thus the system also helps you establish contact with your inner self and enhances the brain’s self-regulation of all five senses.
Exploring the mind-body role of consciousness and belief on overall health, the author reveals how onset hearing loss can be a manifestation of an inner state of imbalance, driven by emotional causes and stress, and how finding the “triggering event” stored in our bodies and dissolving the trauma surrounding it can help restore your hearing. Offering a way to reconnect with the sound environment around us and enhance our inner and outer senses of perception, Stucki shows how improving your hearing can also restore balance to our overall health physically, emotionally, and mentally.
