Have shingles, hearing problems. Ask an online doctor, what type of hearing loss and any herbal medicine available?

My brother is 67 years old. He had Bell's Palsy about 7 years ago and recently developed shingles. He has been having hearing problems during this time and presently, he has lost most of his hearing. As a result of this los of almost complete hearing, he's unable to carry on a conversation with anyone. I'm not sure what type of hearing loss that has resulted and will any natural herbs help him to restore his hearing?

Hi , thanks for contacting HCM
Your mother is 67 years old having history of Bells palsy and recently having shingles. so that she most probably having the sensorineural hearing loss. Please consult the ENT specialist for Hearing test and hearing aid. there is no much improvement by any natural herb. Best to fit the digital hearing aid after cosulting the ENT doctors.
