Tinnitus Home Remedies

Tinnitus Home Remedies

tinnitus home remediesSad to say, but the fact remains that there is no sure fire cure for that undeviating ringing in the ears. That agonizing ailment that affects a great majority of Americans and is commonly known as tinnitus. Fortunately there are a few tinnitus home remedies.

Drugs For Tinnitus Relief?

However, the TV and the added media wouldn’t hear of it. They believe in beating the drums of sundry pharmaceutical agents, provoking the sufferer to go for OTC medications which alas have more harmful side-effects than any real relief.

Here, we’ll show you some tinnitus home remedies that are much safer and easier on your body for tinnitus relief.

Herbal Remedies For Tinnitus

Frustrated sufferers who have heard of herbal remedies often seek respite from gingko bilboa or black cohosh, both said to improve blood circulation in the upper torso and thus provide relief. But these too can never cure the disorder, merely providing marginal relief. Since homeopathy has currently reappeared as one of the most effective alternate mode of treatment for many, tinnitus patients often rush for it in the hope of gaining genuine relief and when that fails too, the only way that is left is the good old home remedy to bank upon.

Tinnitus Medications Can Have Serious Side Effects

The trouble with over-the-counter medications, as earlier said, concerns its side effects that often prove disastrous in most cases. These include head reeling, nausea, acute constipation, exhaustion, vertigo, loss of control and may also lead to that unenviable corporeal vulnerability called the Irregular Bowel Syndrome. So far as other alternative treatment courses are concerned that include hypnosis and hyperbaric oxygen therapy, acupuncture or magnet therapy, the last word is frequently denoted by a zilch.

Nevertheless, the home remedy for tinnitus could prove effective only if the causes could match its parameters. And for doing this one has to figure out what mostly causes tinnitus. The causative factors, nevertheless, could be a single issue or multiple trigger factors that give rise to tinnitus.

For better understanding of the subject, a list of some of the significant factors is given below.

  • Consistent exposure to earsplitting noise occurring at missile test firing grounds, steel stamping or forging units, high power rifle shooting ranges or metal fabrication workshops frequently end up with tinnitus in single or both ears. Listening to high volume rock music for days on end has also caused tinnitus to many.
  • Inadequate blood supply in the upper torso on account of narrowing of blood vessels in that region due to cholesterol can also trigger tinnitus in people suffering from high blood. One of the most distinctive examples of this type of listening problem relates to pulsatile tinnitus where the patient can hear his/her own heartbeat.
  • Even certain types of food and drink like the grain-based alcohols, red wine, chocolates and cheeses can trigger tinnitus in many people who would never have suspected that unholy link between those innocuous consumables and tinnitus.
  • Some types of jawbone joint problems, especially Temporomandibular Jaw Joint problem, it has lately been found, can cause tinnitus in many patients.
  • Prolonged use of NSAIDs, cancer resisting therapies and some of the loop diuretics are known causes of tinnitus.
  • Tumors, non-cancerous growths or allergies near to the ears or occurring in principal blood vessels carrying blood to the head or neck region can trigger tinnitus in people who are susceptible to such conditions.
  • Tinnitus related hearing loss.
  • Microscopic ending damages that may happen to the nerves that is responsible for hearing.
  • When the bones in the middle portion of the ear hardens.
  • Middle ear infection that causes filling up of the space with fluid or discharge and even too much of ear wax buildup causes tinnitus in many cases.

A Few Tinnitus Home Remedies That May Help

Even though some Tinnitus Home Remedies are supposed to provide enduring relief to this distressing disorder, most sadly enough are nothing but voodoos. Yet for the sake of identification, some of these are listed below. These include:-

  • Much hyped gingko bilboa that is known to have that special trait to help rush blood and thus encourage better circulation in the head and neck region, lack of which triggers tinnitus is believed to provide relief to the disease condition in a more positive way.
  • Bayberry bark, burdock root, hawthorn leaf, goldenseal and myrrh gum are some of the best known relief providers for tinnitus patients.
  • Freshly cut pineapple rings that are believed to have inflammation reducing properties are thought to perk up the blood circulation in the head and neck region, thus relieving tinnitus symptoms.
  • Coenzyme Q 10, taken at the rate of 300 mg per day can also improve the upper torso blood circulation by raising the immune system significantly which in turn would provide relief to tinnitus.
  • A teaspoon of common salt mixed with the same quantity of glycerin and sprayed into the nose and throat is supposed to give respite to tinnitus suffers who are probably considered blessed or lucky.
  • Raw garlic taken daily can also offer respite from tinnitus.

Holistic Remedies For Tinnitus

Tinnitus Home remedies, can work effectively only when they function as a component of Holistic Remedies meant for curing tinnitus for good

No matter how much freshly cut pineapple rings one may consume or take concoctions of gingko or black cohosh on a daily or monthly basis, there will never arise any appreciable relief to tinnitus for the simple reason that none of these address the disease condition in any form whatsoever. What these actually do is to deaden the symptoms for a short while and as soon as the provisional therapy is withdrawn, quick marches the symptoms.

Holistic remedies for tinnitus home remedies, on the other hand, treat the body as a whole, seldom bothering with the symptoms. Symptoms are mere manifestation of the disease condition and when this is permanently alienated from the body, symptoms die a natural death. Holistic remedies, as a matter of fact, go much below the surface in order to identify the root causes that have created the disorder and then specify the appropriate range of medications that may include change of food habits and if necessary, change of lifestyle, acupuncture, acupressure and aerobics. But one may do well to bear in mind that home remedies, whether herbal or otherwise will only work when they form a part of holistic remedies – seldom on their own.

Get Relief From Tinnitus – With Noise?

Get Relief From Tinnitus – With Noise?

sound_therapyThis sounds positively absurd – add noise to your life so your tinnitus quiets down!

But – it works!

Actually, there is scientific proof behind the concept. If other sounds are received by the ear with tinnitus, then the brain will not generate the ringing noises. And, white noise has been recognized as soothing and gentle – it’s used to help newborns sleep as they’re used to hearing the mother’s sounds but are now comforted by white noise generators with great success.

I don’t know about your tinnitus, but when I’m in a real quiet room  (laying in bed trying to get to sleep), the noises I hear can be positively deafening! Usually, I’m able to tune them out, but not always. Sometimes I just give up and go downstairs to lie in front of the tv until I get REAL sleepy – then I head off to bed and go right to sleep.

The other night, I tried a little white noise from a  Sound Oasis Sound Therapy System.

I have to say, the results really stunned me. I went right to sleep – and I didn’t think I was sleepy enough to fall right away! I plain didn’t notice the tinnitus – at all!

I just used the sound card that came with it (Ocean Surf, Stream, Rain, White Noise, Summer Night and Wind) , turned the volume down low and off I went!

They’re just $49 at Amazon – you can pay with credit card and it’ll get to you within a week.I highly recommend if you’re having problems getting to sleep.

I never really had much luck with the herbal and homeopathic remedies – although some literally SWEAR by their homeopathic products! It’s just that I could nevert notice the difference.

But the Sound Oasis Sound Therapy System has really helped.

Just CLICK HERE and you’ll be directed to the right page at Amazon.


Tinnitus – You’re The Cure!

There is no medical cure for most cases of Tinnitus, which makes it difficult to make the right decision when choosing a therapy. Learning to accept Tinnitus as a part of life is a line most Tinnitus sufferers don’t want to cross.

This is a great new video I just made – come check it out and tell me what you think!

I’d Really Like To Know….

I know from experience that little things can make my tinnitus worse.

Or make it better. At least for a while.

Loud noise, for sure, can make my head sing like a screeching radio. I’ve gotten pretty good about protecting my ears from noises. Ear protection for lawn mowing and weed whacking. Foam ear plugs for hockey games where the noises seem so loud they all melt into one distorted howl.

Cold drinks – like a Slurpee from 7-Eleven can make the noises seem so much quieter. Why this happens – I don’t know. It happened last night, on a ride through the city. But, I sure did appreciate the quiet – for a while. As I write this, the morning after, the whistling noises (especially in my right ear) have returned – full strength.

If I’ve had a bad night’s sleep (or no sleep at all) I know the noises will be worse. All day. In the morning, after a good, sound night’s sleep, I can’t remember hearing them at all. Like today – I think the noises have returned.

Sports and exercise can make me forget about the noises for a while. If I do at least 20 minutes of cardio on the elliptical trainer or treadmill, then 20 or so minutes of weight lifting, The noises just don’t seem to be around!

So can a good meal. A nice steak, of all-you-can-eat fish-n-chips can dilute the sounds in my head for hours, or so it seems. Perhaps food takes my mind off the subject? You know, tinnitus can be so transient – on, then off – that sometimes I’m never sure what exactly triggers it.

If I’m watching TV late at night – after everyone’s gone to bed and the volume turned way down – all I remember hearing is the show I’m watching. No other noises – that I can remember. But, they always return.

My question to you is – What makes your tinnitus better -or worse? Are there times when you can’t remember hearing those noises? Something you did that made the noises stop? Or get worse! Would you please post your story at the bottom of this page?

You don’t have to leave an email address – or even your real name. But, partly for purely selfish reasons, partly to help others, I would really enjoy hearing your story.

What’s in it for you? At this point – nothing, except maybe someone else can get some relief from what’s worked for you.

Thanks in advance for your words, as they mean so much to me.

Tinnitus Home Remedies

What do you do when there aren’t many medical options available to relieve your tinnitus? There are a few drugs you can take, such as Tocainid, Carbamazepin or Gabapentin. But there’s no history that these drugs offer long-term relief from those noises in your ears. Again, there is no scientific evidence that antidepressants, Transcranial, magnetic stimulation or the Retraining-Therapy have positive effects either.

Learn About Home Remedies For Tinnitus
Even though modern medicine may not be able to do much for your tinnitus,  home remedies have begun to emerge as leading treatments for the symptoms of tinnitus – whooshing, whistling, roaring noises that come from inside the ear. I’m not talking about vitamin pills masquerading as tinnitus cures or other forms of quackery – I believe that although, there is no cure for tinnitus, there are definitely methods to turn your tinnitus into something a little more bearable, and perhaps, not so much torture as in the past.

Here are a couple of home remedies that I read about the other day. Though all tinnitus home remedies may not work equally as well for all people, I believe that most people will be able to get some relief with  at least one home remedy. Here’s  a couple of the most interesting tinnitus home remedies;

  • Natural herbs and spices. Although the herb ginkgo-biloba is probably one of the most over-used and over-hyped therapies for ailments ranging from baldness to sexual performance help, some non-scientific studies have shown that, when the tinnitus suffer believes that the ginkgo-biloba will help his symptoms, the symptoms often diminish very noticeably! Another example of the power of suggestion! And don’t forget, in addition to ginkgo-biloba, some pill-artists claim that their concoction of chelated zinc and deodorized garlic, when taken over a 3-4 month period (at a cost of almost $175!) will make a difference to tinnitus sufferers. Tinnitus home remedies come in all shapes and sizes – and prices! Here’s a money-saving tip. If you find  natural herbs and spices help your tinnitus, shop around.  Bulk and larger, mix-your-own prices for your favorite concoction should be MUCH cheaper that some of the pre-mixed, boutique stores – internet and otherwise.
  • Shazam – this next home remedy for tinnitus is a hum-dinger. Vacha (Acorus calamus) oil can have a powerful effect in calming and balancing the Prana Vata (functions in the head-neck-chest region). which can cause tinnitus. A sesame oil in which the calamus root is boiled and can be administered in the nose, five drops per nostril, at night and in the morning. The sesame oil mixture (nasya) should be warmed to body temperature before application. I think this one has a far less exotic and practical treatment – as a child with an ear infection, my mother used to warm mineral oil to body temperature and, using an eye dropper, she would fill the afflicted  ear with the warm oil for 15 – 20 minutes. This may not have cured the ear ache, but it sure felt good – as the “nasya” might feel! Why not try this home remedy tonight – a bottle of mineral oil may cost $2.50 – if it doesn’t relieve the tinnitus, mineral oil makes for a great laxative!

Of course, please take the above ideas with a grain of salt, as there is absolutely no scientific proof that either suggestion offers any benefit for tinnitus sufferers. In fact, there may be more harm than good if the herbs are used to excess – there is certainly evidence that ginkgo-biloba can be toxic in high doses. But, when considering tinnitus home remedies, always remember that if you THINK it may work for you, then it just may provide some relief Home remedies may be worth a try.
