Take care of what you have ....

Ear care (did I just swear?)
…  It being a very unpopular and under appreciated thing, should be something of the past. There are but only a handful of people who honestly take care of their own and their family’s ears. With our lack of listening closer and more carefully we tend to put things louder, therefore enhancing the possibility of damage to our ears.

Here are some questions that need answering:

Do you have ears?
Can you hear?
Can you imagine being with out hearing?
People only start to worry about their ears once ear problems occur. Are you one of them?

When I start talking to people about ear care, most start pulling a face, others start asking questions and telling stories about their bad experiences involving either them or their children. Whether you are interested or not, you need to be aware of damages and the care to prevent it.

Loud music playing in the car and on earphones. Loud machinery. Instruments playing at close range. At shooting ranges. At Building sites. In mines.  People screaming at events or maybe, blowing the vuvuzela. I can go on for hours. This affects us all.
All of this and many more are the cause of irreparable damage to your hearing.
The key word we should focus on here is PREVENTION. Follow the saying, “Prevention is better than a cure “ because in this case, there is no cure.
Hearing loss creeps up on you, and before you realize what’s going on the damage is done.. Do you want to live in silence???


Why don’t you take the first step and visit an Audiologist to have your ears tested. Have your baby’s ears tested. Other than that, there are affordable earplugs in the market.
Take responsibility today, save the ears of your family …. 

Cirrus Healthcare has a range of products that provide different levels of noise reduction for different applications.
