Tinnitus is a condition causing a person to hear ringing or buzzing noises in their ears. It affects some people only occasionally and others quite frequently. The intensity of the sound varies from one person to the next. Some may hear very loud, unbearable noises while others may hear low, annoying ones.
Two different types of Tinnitus
There are two different classifications of Tinnitus: Objective – where people besides the affected person can hear the sounds (people in close proximity), and Subjective – where the affected person is the only one hearing the sounds – this is the most common of the two types.
Tinnitus sometimes prevents people from being able to concentrate on their work, as well as being able to fall asleep.
Home remedies for tinnitus
Take ginkgo biloba to help with dizziness and to normalize the blood flow to the ears; eat fresh pineapple or drink fresh pineapple juice; fry garlic cloves in ghee, then eat them; add 1 tsp salt and 1 tsp glycerin to warm water – add this mixture to your nasal spray and use in the nose 3 times a day.
Avoid eating or drinking dairy products; limit your intake of sugar, salt, fatty products, coffee, and tea – these products will worsen the condition of tinnitus; eat plenty of fresh fruits and green vegetables to improve your immune system; eat lots of protein-rich foods.
Wear a covering (ear muffs or a mask) over your ears, especially if you work in a noisy environment because loud noises can actually cause tinnitus; do not use tobacco or drink any alcoholic beverages while you are experiencing tinnitus; exercise daily to normalize your blood pressure and to keep tinnitus from developing.
Take Vitamin A, Vitamin B, and Zinc supplements (or eat a diet rich in these nutrients); reduce stress (try meditating, finding a new hobby, or getting together with friends); take yoga classes (to improve your breathing techniques); check with your doctor to see if certain medications you are taking may be causing the tinnitus.
