Once you're able to consistently repeat the sentences word-for-word, try the exercise again
                            with the TV on in the background or in a noisy restaurant.

                            3. Don't stick things in your ear

                            Also known as cerumen, ear wax is a natural defense mechanism that protects the inside of
                            your ear from foreign particles, bacteria and infection.

                            It is secreted by special glands located in your outer ear, and varies in color and consistency

                            from person to person.

                            The ear is sensitive and the ear drum in particular is delicate.

                            The old saying 'don't put anything smaller than your elbow in your ear' is a good rule of
                            thumb here.

                            By using Q-tips or cotton buds or any small objects to clean or scratch the ear you are at a

                            higher risk of perforating the eardrum.

                            This is painful and can leave lasting damage to your hearing..

                            4. Be aware of volume on personal music players

                            It's easier than ever to be surrounded by sound and music throughout the day but with that
                            comes a potential opportunity for hearing damage.

                            The latest versions of MP3 players and iPods have a volume limit built in, enabling this

                            feature prevents the device from going above noise levels that would be deemed dangerous.

                            As a general rule of thumb, if the people around you can hear the music you're playing
                            through your device, it's too loud.

                            The volume level should be just a little above audible, but be aware of particularly noisy
                            environments where the background noise is so great that even this moderate measurement

                            produces music that is too loud.

                            Your choice of headphones will also have an impact on the levels of sound your ears can
                            withstand before they're at risk of being damaged.

                            5. Get regular check ups

                            An important part of looking after your hearing is to get it regularly checked out by a medical

                            professional. Having periodic check ups allows your doctors to track or spot any changes
                            that may have occurred early on and so appropriate action can be taken. Audiograms give a

                            measure of hearing sensitivity at a range of frequencies and tracking audiograms over a
                            period of time may be particularly useful if you work in a noisy environment so any damage

                            can be detected.

                            My life-time vision is that of a world where everybody can easily and affordably support the
                            natural health of their hearing.

                            That's why I've spent most of my research activity trying and testing various ways that could

                            really make a positive impact on people's lives.

                            Based on this research, I've searched for a natural, inexpensive mix of vitamins, plants and

                            herbs that, combined with the tips above, could help anyone support their healthy hearing.

                            And after many trials, I've perfected a simple, yet powerful formula, consisting of Yam,
                            Fenugreek, Dong Quai , L-Tyrosine, Motherwort, Black Cohosh Oat Grass, Pacific Kelp,

                            Blessed Thistle and Hops Extract.
