My son 6 years old, hearing loss in right ear and starting left

My son was tested and it was confirmed that he has almost complete hearing loss in his right ear and it is starting in his left as well.

They indicated that both eardrums are retracted. I am fearful that he may lose his hearing completely, if we do not act fast. Can anyone please provide some insight and describe any remedies that we could try.

Important to note that the right ear was identified as a hereditary loss...is there anything we can do?

Thank you for you response. My answers are listed below.

1.whether he prefers warm surroundings ie whether he likes to be covered or he prefers cold surroundings and open air.
- He typically begins sleep with covers on and eventually takes them off while he is sleeping. He likes to sleep next to one of his parents as well.

2.whether he has a mild disposition or an irritable diposition. How is his attitude towards his friends and relatives?
- He is very loving
- Tries to help when he can
- Gets fairly upset if he does not get what he wants
- He likes to learn
- Loves to run - more than anything else

3.What other physical problems, if any does he have.
- He is more likely to get a stomach ache than the rest of our family.
- Has dryness on the back of his hands in the winter time.


4.At what time he feels better and at what time does he feel worse like in the morning, evening, late night etc.
- I'm not sure when his hearing is worse or better. But he definitely gets a lot of energy around mid-afternoon

5.What do you think is the causative factor for starting his problems.
Retracted ear drums. When he sneezes, he indicates that everything gets louder for a little while and eventually gets worse again.

6.How is his thirst for cold drinks, hot drinks and water?
He likes room temperature water and cold is fine too.

7.How is the bowel movement? Normal, constipated or loose. - Usually it's normal.

Please give him three doses of Pulsatilla 200c at a gap of 4 hours for only one day (not daily) and report back after 15 days.

One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 2 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 1 drop in some 10 ml water. Sip up slowly.

Please follow homeo restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 15 minutes before or after taking medicine.

The doctor just indicated that the right ear is due to nerve deafness....does this change the course of treatment?

I haven't heard back, so I wanted to follow up.

I guess the question is, is there anything for regrowing these nerve follicles?

A homeo remedy is a stimulation to the vital force. It is always selected on the basis of totality of symptoms. If the remedy is able to stimulate the vital force, the curative action starts. In my opinion here the totality of symptoms points to pulsatilla. The kind of question that you are asking can't be answered confidently in homeopathy. The physiological changes are effected by the vital force, the remedy just offers a stimulation to the vital force.
