Hearing Amplifiers, TV Ears, & Hearing Aids

There are several tiers of over-the-counter (OTC) hearing assist devices known as hearing amplifiers. They are NOT hearing aids, but towards the high end, they nearly approach the capabilities of one. On the low end, they cost around $50-$150. Mid-tier hearing amplifiers cost around $500. At the high end, top of the line hearing amplifiers can often cost around $2000, as much as bona fide hearing aids sold by an audiologist. These top of the line devices are categorized under "Amplifiers +" below. The Bose hearing aid is the only bona fide hearing aid available over-the-counter that is FDA approved. Regarding TV ears, sometimes you just want to hear the TV better without annoying others by increasing the volume.

Music therapy can help with hidden hearing loss by strengthening the auditory processing pathways to help the brain filter out the noise and focus on the sounds you actually want to hear.These programs allow the eyes to visually aid the ears to hear the single melody line of interest.

Dizziness & Motion Sickness

Please keep in mind that meclizine and dramamine only treat the symptoms of dizziness without fixing the underying cause and in some cases, may even make dizziness worse (more info here)! You can try to figure out what is causing your dizziness in order to address the root cause by following this flowchart. Regarding the OTC patch, this is NOT the same as the prescription motion sickness patch (scopolamine). Vitamin D3 appears to help decrease risk of BPPV, a very common cause of transient vertigo that occurs with head movements (more info on the relationship between vitamin D levels and BPPV can be found here).
