Is Inner Ear Regeneration Possible?

Advanced Rejuvenation has been working to put together the most cutting edge therapies for the treatment of inner ear conditions. Currently we are focused on the combination of physical adjustments to the bones of the skull, which also release certain connective tissues surrounding the ear, as well as laser therapy applied to the ear.

More in-depth look at LumoMed for Tinnitus Care.

To understand how these treatments work you need a good understanding of hair cells.

07b37acf3d9377809d72b7fb2900cc75Hair cells in the inner ear are the nerve cells that allow us to perceive sound waves. They are essential for our balance, hearing and proper brain function. Without them we would be deaf and disoriented. If hair cells are damaged in any way, we suffer permanent hearing loss or debilitating balance disorders. We are finding these insufficiencies are also intimately connected to our brain function and can cause issues with proper coordination of the eyes and movement of the body. Since the autonomic nervous system is also wired through these pathways, function of the gut, heart ,liver, kidney and bladder can all suffer from issues from your hair cells. With these little cells being so important, you would think this would be a major area of new medical breakthroughs… but it’s not really compared to other areas of medicine!

What are these hair cells?

Under a microscope, they look as though they have a tiny hair protruding from them so they are called hair cells. Stereocilia are the organ made of hair cells, and they bend in response to sound or other mechanical influence. There are two types: auditory and vestibular. Auditory hair cells, which detect sound, are located in the cochlea of the inner ear. Movements of the stereocilia are transmitted to the brain and interpreted as sound.

Our sense of balance is also made possible through vestibular hair cells. These are located in vestibular organs.

Besides loud noises, ototoxic drugs (drugs which damage the hearing), lyme disease and other bacterial infections, viral infections, and trauma can all damage hair cells.

The good news is that the possibility of hair cell regeneration in mammals has been confirmed! Even Harvard has done studies supporting this technology. See Study here.

Inner Ear laser therapy must be performed with specialized lasers as well as machine settings that have been discovered by Dr. Kaiser in Germany.

Laser therapy might hold the most promise for those suffering from hearing loss, tinnitus and balance disorders. Several doctors have been working with the application of laser therapy for regeneration of the hair cells in the inner ear. The concept is that by supplying energy in the form of photons into the inner ear, the hair cells can utilize that energy to repair and regenerate themselves. Dr. Amon Kaiser has been working with lasers for more than 20 years, after his father pioneered the methods in the 70’s. (Click here for several video interviews with Dr. Amon Kaiser) It is well known that laser therapy can have an influence on growth factors and stem cell activation. Both stem cells and growth factors have been studied by major medical institutions, and both have shown hair cell regeneration effects. Another aspect of this treatment is a high safety profile, little risk of injury, and results show efficacy in hearing loss, tinnitus and balance in most cases.

Other therapies Advanced Rejuvenation offers for Inner Ear Health.

NAD+ Therapy for Hearing loss and Tinnitus

Another exciting therapy for the inner ear is NAD+ Therapy. NAD+ is a key nutrient that drastically declines with age and stress. It is also a key nutrient for energy production which the hair cells in the inner ear desperately need to maintain themselves. For more information click here.

Effectiveness of whole-body cryotherapy

in patients with tinnitus.

Treatment of tinnitus may be effective by using whole-body cryotherapy. Using short exposure to freezing conditions may improve energy production at a cellular level. Click here for a study on WBC and Tinnitus.

Why are manipulations and functional neurology applied to our U.S. based therapy protocols?

Menenges or Dura Mater may get adhesions that can cause tinnitus, hearing loss and balance disorders.

There are dense connective tissues that wind, wrap and connect to the inside lining of the cranial bones. These connective tissues are called dura mater (dura) which in Latin mean “tough mother.” “Tough” because it has 2,000 lbs per square inch of strength and “mother” because it acts to protect the very sensitive tissues of your central nervous system. The dura actually becomes the whites of your eyes and is the lining of the sinus as well as into the area around the inner ear. I always like to give the example of a swamp versus a river. Which one is a healthier environment? The river of course, as it has good circulation of nutrients and keeps things clean and free of debris and toxins. Circulation acts to “bring in the groceries and take out the garbage.” Without this, organs and tissues in your body become a breading ground for virus and bacteria, which has been shown to be a major cause of stress and damage to the inner ear. Lymphatics channels the ears as well as most other parts of your body and creates what is called “drainage.” If you have poor drainage you have a swamp and a perfect terrain for microbial growth. On top of this there is poor nutrient delivery of key vitamins, amnio acids and minerals to  provide building blocks for proper maintenance and repair of damaged tissue.  This is what FCR works on with the specific endo-nasal balloon manipulations to release these tissues and turn the inner ear environment into a river. This can lead to healing and regeneration of the cells and tissues in the inner ear.

Besides this benefit, the combination of the cranial adjustments with the functional neurology have been seen to make significant improvements in cases of hearing loss, tinnitus and balance disorders, which are due to central nervous system causes. (Read my article regarding central causes of tinnitus.) Many times it is impossible for the brain, eyes and muscles of the neck and spine NOT to suffer imbalance. With functional neurology, we have specific ways we activate the nervous system using a variety of modalities based on your exam findings. Many times exercises are prescribed to perform in the office and at home.

Could chronic facial pain and chronic diseases of inflammation be caused by your jaw bone?

Aside

Screen Shot 2015-10-11 at 9.17.32 AMThe chronic softening in the jawbone are a phenomenon that is not perceived by many areas of medicine and dentistry to date, or is not taken seriously, at least in their health effects. This “jaw-inflammation” were by the American pathologist Professor BOUQUOT as “Neuralgia Inducing Cavitational Osteonecrosis” (“neuralgia inducing cavity forming osteonecrosis = NICO) because they often cause unspecific facial pain.

 

Health effects of Kieferostitis

The health effects of NICO in the jaw can be condensed in two areas: on the one hand the local aspect of a chronic underlying irritation of the facial nerve. Here the symptom picture as trigeminal neuralgia is known. NICO is thus a special form of a jawbone disease – based on facial pain and trigeminal neuralgia. On the other hand, the systemic failure of important organs or cell function by releasing their inflammatory neurotransmitters, which are demonstrated in NICO areas. This shows a much less clear, but a confusing picture of the diverse symptoms NICO effect.

This bone disease have an impact on the overall system in terms of a silent chronic inflammation: The easily comprehensible term “NICO” has yet naturalized internationally in clinical parlance. This, and the non-visibility on conventional radiographs – “NICO does not exist” – makes the study of the chronic Kieferostitis / NICO not easier, but requires everyone involved scientific openness and probable cause search in a particular case of the patient concerned.

Screen Shot 2015-10-11 at 9.17.50 AMProblems of Jaw ostitis diagnostics

To disregard the NICO as sickening change the jawbone certainly bears the problem of their X-ray presentation at: A normal X-ray image does not show the NICO or only very limited!
The introduction of digital volume tomography (DVT), a method is available which represents the structures in a NICO with greater reliability. We serve for the special bone densitometry in the jaw designed CaviTAU ultrasound system as an additional imaging procedure for the metrological determination of bone density and to hedge the previous X-ray diagnostics. For the purposes of the statutory duty of care CaviTAU is a non-load-forming additive method.

Structure and appearance of a Jaw ostitis / NICO

NICO is an insufficient supply in the form of a metabolic disorder that leads to greasy-degenerative bone resolutions. In general, deer NICO represents as greasy lumps that are easy to spoon from the medullary canal of the jawbone. These degenerate fat cells in NICO-areas form inflammatory messenger substances (cytokines / chemokines) that affect other organs and may be associated with inflammatory joint disorders, breast cancer, Hashimoto’s, multiple sclerosis and other tumors there.

Testimonial for 60 years of balance, vertigo and anxiety treated with FCR and Functional.Neurology

Aside

I want to…help Dr. Lieurance, D.C. promote his unique therapy with functional neurology. For me to see the changes in balance and the resulting calming effect is amazing to me. After living with this for 60 years, I find it phenomenal that my brain is able to make the changes that it is: brain neuroplasticity is a heavy player in research. I am glad I am living proof that “old dogs CAN learn new tricks”. The improvement in my quality of life continues to surprise me—as I never knew it could be this way—I just had adapted to what I knew as “normal”. Now people invading my personal space is not as overwhelming and threatening. I don’t get nearly as upset if someone bumps into me, or touches me. No longer do I feel like I am losing my balance when I turn quickly, go up or down stairs or make quick movements. My sense of security is improving as I am not having to monitor every movement, I am enjoying exercise more. Eating is becoming more reasonable, as I am not as likely to eat to calm my stomach, as it is not as constantly upset (think vertigo nausea).
This is not traditional vestibular therapy: it is very skilled/specialized and individualized—no cookbook methods here. Dr.  Lieurance has had extensive training in functional neurology, and returns to be a lead in grand rounds 2 times a year where he trained. I have always avoided traditional vestibular therapy as I felt it would make me worse. Sensory processing therapy which would have been more appropriate is not readily available in the valley for adults. I feel I have found a gold mine in Dr.  Lieurance’s practice, and my therapist, Paul who is an AIS specialist is fantastic. I want to get the word out so others can benefit as well.”

Sincerely,

Barbara

Why is Glutathione so important?

Aside

Functional Neurology and Naturopathic Medicine

Glutathione is so important because it is responsible for keeping so many of the keys to wellness.  It is critical for immune function and controlling inflammation.  It is the master detoxifier and the body’s main antioxidant, protecting our cells and making our energy metabolism run well.  The good news is that you can do many things to increase this natural and crucial molecule in your body.  An essential mechanism for raising Glutathione in the body is by supplementation via nebulization and suppository delivery systems.

Suppository

Functional cranial release treatment used in conjunction with Gluthatione is highly effective in treating patients presenting with symptoms of Parkinson’s disease,chronic sinusitis, brain function, tinnitus, chronic fatigue syndrome, sleep apnea, migraine, stroke, vertigo and more.
