Hearing Aids Tailored To Your Life!

Over 10,000 lives transformed
since 1996 in Silicon Valley

They say that an apple a day keeps the doctor away – and, in fact, an apple a day may actually help to prevent hearing loss, but we’ll get to that in a moment. Right now, let’s address the topic at hand, namely that a glass of red wine a day may actually help to protect your precious hearing.

According to a study published in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, resveratrol – an antioxidant that is essential in combatting the effects of aging and disease – may also help to ward off hearing loss. In an experiment involving two groups of rats that were exposed to loud noise, the group that was given resveratrol supplements experienced significantly less hearing loss and a 90 percent reduction in the factors that can contribute to hearing loss, including free radical formation, than the group that was not given resveratrol supplements.

While this experiment was conducted on rats, study lead author Michael D. Seidman, MD, director of the division of otologic/neurotologic surgery at the Henry Ford Health System, believes that the research can probably be applied to humans, as well.

Resveratrol can be found in grapes, peanuts, and – you guessed it – red wine. So it is possible that, alongside the many other known benefits of drinking a glass of red wine each evening, you can add preventing hearing loss to the list

Other Foods That May Help to Prevent Hearing Loss

That leads us back to apples and other foods that are rich in antioxidants. Apples contain quercetin, an antioxidant that is essential in the fight against free radicals. The connection between free radicals and hearing loss was first demonstrated in a study led by Dr. Seidman in the mid-2000s. So, indeed, an apple a day may keep the doctor – and hearing loss – away.

Other foods that are rich in antioxidants – broccoli, spinach, asparagus, lentils, dried beans, eggs, bananas, liver, and nuts – can also be useful in the fight against free radicals.

With or without research studies, common sense dictates that a healthy diet is fundamental to a healthy body. We truly are what we eat. The healthier your body, the more likely you are to preserve your valuable senses – including your hearing – over the long term.

I've been a client of Christine Throm for over 10 years (and 3 moves... you always stay with the best). She is a VERY dedicated professional, she is knowledgeable, and caring. My hearing loss has never been managed more effectively and the she has access to the latest and most advanced technologies. She has personally selected her staff to reflect her own values and high standards. Everyone there is friendly helpful. To top it off, they are now conveniently located adjacent to the "Mission Oaks" campus of Good Sam in a suite of beautiful, "state-of-the-art" offices.She is the GREATEST! Enough said.

Dr. Christine Throm was very knowledgeable and thorough. After one visit I understood what my hearing losses are and what I could expect from hearing aids. I have visited other audiologists with poorer results. I will be returning to Los Gatos Audiology.

I’ve been a patient of Los Gatos Audiology for several years and am on my second set of hearing aids that have been prescribed here. The staff is always friendly and helpful. Dr. Christine Throm is the best. She’s always takes time to understand any aspect of my personal hearing issues to provide the best care for me. I simply wouldn’t go anywhere else.
