provider programs the hearing aids to their full hearing prescription, which is overwhelming for many and causes them to avoid wearing their new hearing aids. With the NeuroHearing System, our patients start out at closer to 70 percent of their prescription. RECOVERING FROM HEARING LOSS IS LIKE PHYSICAL THERAPY. YOU HAVE TO EXERCISE YOUR BRAIN AND TRAIN THOSE NEURONS TO HEAR CORRECTLY AGAIN. This lower level keeps patients from becoming overwhelmed and gives the neurons the opportunity regrow, while the patient gets in the routine of wearing the aids consistently. Over time, the brain retrains itself to hear correctly again and we slowly expose the patient to more and more sound, gradually increasing them to their full prescription at a speed that is comfortable for their brain to adapt. We’ve found this to be a far more successful and satisfying approach for our patients. In the United States, the national average of patient success with hearing aids is around 60 percent. In our practice, thanks to the emphasis we put on the NeuroHearing System, our success rate sits at over 96 percent. This is the case because we use a proven treatment process that is focused on how the brain and ears work together.

If you’ve ever had to wear prescription lenses, you know how everything improves the instant you put on those frames or contacts. The world goes from blurry and confusing to crystal clear. Many people think of hearing aids like they think of glasses. They expect the world to improve the moment they turn on their hearing aids for the first time. Unfortunately, that isn’t how hearing works. Although you hear sound through your ears, your brain has the job of interpreting that sound and turning it into meaning. When a person struggles with hearing loss, the neurons in their brain don’t get the stimulation they need to stay sharp. The brain is like a muscle: You either use it or you lose it. On average, people wait seven years before they seek treatment for hearing loss. That’s seven years (or more) during which the average person’s neurons in the hearing part of the brain aren’t being stimulated properly. During that time, that part of the brain begins to atrophy. This makes it more difficult to understand speech, even with hearing aids that are programmed correctly for their hearing loss. Many people who purchase their first hearing aids are frustrated with the lack of improvement and hope a different brand or model will work better. However, what we have found in our practice is that recovering from hearing loss is like physical therapy. You have to exercise your brain and train those neurons to hear correctly again.

From the beginning, my priority with ClearLife has been to show the community that we serve what hearing care should be. The NeuroHearing System empowers us to do so while helping our patients improve not just their ear health, but their brain health too.

For this reason, I created the ClearLife NeuroHearing System. Often, when people are fit with hearing aids for the first time, their hearing
