Eustachian tube dysfunction may occur when the mucosal lining of the tube is swollen, or does not open or close properly. If the tube is dysfunctional, symptoms such as muffled hearing, pain, tinnitus, reduced hearing, a feeling of fullness in the ear or problem with balance may also occur. 

Here are some tips to improve your hearing power-

Practice focusing on and locating sounds to sharpen your hearing

Hearing exercise can help you hone in on where sounds are coming from and who is making the sound or what kind of sound is coming. Place a radio or speaker in one area of the room, and play music or sound at a comfortable volume. Place another sound source in a different area of the room, and turn up the volume until the combination of the two sounds creates a noisy environment. 

Ask someone to move around the room and say some sentences and try to repeat the sentences. Also, try to locate where the sound is coming.


Meditate in a park or other public area where you will be surrounded by various sounds. As you meditate, take deep breaths to help blood circulation and improve oxygen circulation. Focus in and out on each sound around you and try to locate from where each sound is coming from.


Daily exercising is very important for keeping your mind and body fit. Exercising every day by going out for a walk or job, doing yoga or even just gardening or doing housework is great for getting your blood pumping and circulation going strong.


Yoga poses that help with circulation includes the tree, lotus, cobra and triangle pose.


Have only plant-based natural foods in your diet. Include salads, beans, whole grains, nuts, fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet. 

Avoid dairy products and animal products. Avoid processed, packaged, preserved and oily foods.
