Dr Oz: Is Hearing Loss Inevitable?
Dr Oz is sharing seven red flags that your body is aging too fast, with surprising signs of Lung Cancer and Kidney Disease. But there are still more red flags to know. Is hearing loss something we should all accept as a part of the aging process? This is something many people believe, but Dr Oz said it is a myth. Find out the difference between hearing loss vs Alzheimer’s Disease symptoms and get Dr Oz’s latest recommendation about Magnesium supplements.
Dr Oz: Hearing Loss Vs Alzheimers Disease
Beth from the audience said that her hearing seems to be declining somewhat as she gets older. Doctor Oz said this is a big warning sign of premature aging, because it indicates an early sign of Dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease. Dr Oz used a creative model of the brain with different colored gears representing memory, smell, sight, and other mental processes.
Different parts of the brain affect the different senses, and they are interconnected with the memory and other senses. But in an Alzheimer’s Disease patient, the process gets “erratic” due to plaque buildup in the brain. To demonstrate this, Dr Oz and Beth stuck putty in the gears, which prevented some of them from turning correctly.
Dr Oz explained that this plaque prevents the brain’s neurons from properly communicating. Losing your hearing can be a first step toward isolation and lack of communication, which can lead to escalating symptoms of dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease.
Dr Oz: Magnesium for Hearing Loss
We are still in the research process of a cure for Alzheimer’s Disease, but Dr Oz seemed hopeful that one is coming in the future. In the meantime, he recommended taking 300 mg Magnesium every day, which will improve your hearing and have other health benefits.
Dr Oz seems to cover a lot of different supplements on the show every week, but Magnesium is one that comes up often because he thinks it has so many benefits throughout the body. If it means better hearing and brain function, I would try it out. What do you think?
