Deafness (Hearing Loss) Connections

Below you will find various relationships to the concept of and potential clinical approaches for deafness (hearing loss). It is critical to appreciate that in Chinese Medicine (and most related systems), treatment for "deafness (hearing loss)" is rarely designed with the resulting "deafness (hearing loss)" exclusively in mind.

For non-practitioners, we recommend reading treating the "cause" and not the "symptoms" for more on the overall approach and the importance of the TCM diagnostic system in formulating treatment approaches.

Within TCM, "deafness (hearing loss)", is potentially related to the following diagnostic patterns - blood stagnation, kidney yin deficiency, liver yin deficiency among many other possibilities and/or layered combinations.
