Seeing is believing, but hearing is belonging. It is joining in a conversation. It is sharing a joke, listening to a child's excited retelling of a story, going to a play with friends, or enjoying a romantic dinner with your spouse.

Losing the ability to hear crisply and clearly can be isolating and frustrating. It can take away daily pleasures and can even threaten your independence.

Age-related hearing loss affects one in three of us by age 65. That shouldn't be surprising. We've punished our ears with a lifetime of noise from lawnmowers and hair dryers to car horns and loud music.

The good news is you don't have to suffer the silence. You can enjoy better hearing. Today, new hearing aids some as small as a jelly bean are producing greater amplification with less distortion. Some can be worn 24/7, others have wireless capability.

But which hearing aid should you consider? Should you get two? Is your hearing loss sensorineural or conductive (the difference is crucial)? Is surgery an option? What are cochlear implants? How can you prevent further damage?

You can get the answers to these questions and more from Hearing Loss: A Guide to Prevention and Treatment. This Special Health Report, prepared by Harvard Medical School doctors, provides an understanding of the causes of hearing loss as well as the breakthroughs that are helping adults minimize its consequences.

This new report will tell you about other contributors to hearing loss including some common medications. It will prepare you to work with an audiologist to get an accurate diagnosis. It will also help you learn what to look for in a hearing aid and what to look out for when selecting a dealer.

The report will reveal whether it is possible to burst an eardrum, the causes and cures for ringing in the ears, why you don't need to go near the water to get swimmer's ear, and how treating hearing loss can protect your brain from decline and perhaps even from dementia.

Order your copy of this important new Special Health Report today! It's advice worth listening to!

To your good health,
