Your Hearing is linked to Your Health...
Unlike vision loss or tooth loss, most hearing loss cannot be detected as long as you smile and nod in conversation... until you realize that you are the only one not laughing in a group, or start isolating from regular conversation or social gatherings.
A number of researchers from many different specialties report in agreement that "...un-diagnosed or untreated hearing loss has a significantly higher correlation with mental and social disease as well as dementia and Alzheimer's."
The Known Impact of Untreated Hearing Loss & Intervention
People with hearing loss are likely to experience mental and emotional issues; isolation, withdrawal, sadness, anger, depression, anxiety, loneliness, and frustration, as reported by clinical studies.
There is a THREE TIMES (3X) HIGHER chance of falling when an individual has hearing loss.
There is a FIVE TIMES (5X) HIGHER chance of an individual with hearing loss in developing a cognitive decline.
Early diagnosis and use of amplification showed evidence of delay in the onset of dementia and a slow down in the process of mental decline according to recent studies.
