Are you experiencing difficulty with your hearing? Are you over 50? If you have answered yes to both of these questions, you may be glad to know about the free services offered by Hidden Hearing.

Hearing loss is a common problem amongst people of all ages, but people often put off seeking help when they begin to notice it. We always advise people to seek help for hearing loss as soon as they can because untreated hearing loss can worsen quickly, as well as leading to other conditions such as dementia and depression.
Facts About Ear Wax:
• Ear wax, also known as cerumen, is an essential bodily fluid that keeps our ears clean and protects against bacteria. However, a build up of ear wax can cause problems with hearing, and people with excessive ear wax often experience temporary hearing loss as a result of this. The good news is that the solution is very simple and free in most cases! Book your free ear wax removal procedure on our website now.
• Ear wax gives an interesting clue to our heritage, with studies showing that people with sticky and wet ear wax tend to be descended from African or European ancestors, while people with dry ear wax are descended from East Asia.
• The safest way to remove excess ear wax is via irrigation, which involves the use of warm water to flush out the ear canal. It is dangerous to try and remove an ear wax blockage yourself at home, as inserting anything such as a cotton bud into the ear canal can risk impaction and make the problem worse. Always seek professional help for this problem.
Book A Free Hearing Test at Hidden Hearing
If you think that you may be developing hearing loss, the first step is to make an appointment to see an audiologist for a free hearing test, which will establish your base line hearing level. Temporary hearing loss may be resolved through treatment such as an ear wax removal procedure, but we also have a great range of hearing aids to help with permanent hearing loss. Modern digital hearing aids are tiny and discreet, and they offer a great hearing experience with added features such as Bluetooth streaming from your phone or mp3 player.
