Before we discuss natural Tinnitus therapy you need to know that the sounds of Tinnitus — e.g. hissing, whooshing, knocking, clicking, ticking, ringing, etc. — are actually the symptoms of some other problem you have. So that your Tinnitus isn’t a condition in itself, but rather the sign of some other underlying condition. And, depending on the severity, Tinnitus can cause you problems in your workplace, your relationships and your day-to-day activities. Here you’ll discover how to use natural Tinnitus therapy to help you get relief from your Tinnitus symptoms.
First, as was said in the introduction, Tinnitus itself isn’t a medical condition but the result of some other Tinnitus 911 underlying condition or problem. So that to deal effectively with your Tinnitus you first need to identify the cause or causes of your Tinnitus in order to apply the Tinnitus therapy that’s right for you.
The 3 main causes are (1) ear damage, (2) health problems and (3) loud noises. Typically these are things like; inner ear / auditory nerve damage, ear wax plug, blocked eustachian tube, otosclerosis, meniere’s disease, whiplash, head trauma, allergies, stress, noise-damaged hearing.
Your general practitioner will normally send you to a specialist who will carry out the necessary tests. Once your Tinnitus has been confirmed treatment can begin.
Typical mainstream drug-based treatments use antihistamines, anticonvulsants, antidepressants and cardiovascular drugs. Complimentary treatments such as meditation, acupuncture, hypnosis and yoga are also popular. And a Tinnitus specialist might also recommend tinnitus maskers, or hearing aids. Surgery is usually the last option and is used very rarely because it is so invasive.
But, so far, no proven medical cure for Tinnitus exists, so that 93% of Tinnitus victims never get total relief from their symptoms. Which is why so many sufferers are turning to completely natural Tinnitus therapies. Here are some ideas to get you started…
Remember that health issues can cause Tinnitus? The first thing to consider in any Tinnitus therapy is your central immune system. When this is working well you are much healthier, you have less disease, less infections, less allergies etc.
Make sure your diet has plenty of fresh vegetables and fruit so that you’re getting enough minerals and vitamins. Eat plain yogurt daily to help build-up the good bacteria in your gut. And many people swear by taking diluted raw apple cider vinegar daily too.
Stress is a large part of the Tinnitus vicious cycle. Stress can cause Tinnitus and you get stressed even more with Tinnitus. Help get rid of stress through exercise, e.g. going for long walks (especially with your dog), gentle running, swimming, etc. Also through listening to low relaxing music, indulging in a hobby, reading, etc.
And of course loud noises can cause Tinnitus. If you work in a noisy environment always wear ear protectors! Keep your TV and radio volumes down, just enough to hear. If you have to listen to anything through earphones, again, keep the volume as far down as you can. Remember that noise damage is a key cause of Tinnitus.
These are enough to get started on your natural Tinnitus therapy, but they are only the beginning. You need to do your own research on all the natural therapies out there and see which works for you, because everyone is different.
