Tinnitus stands for a professional medical expression for unpleasant noises, which are known as rustling, whistling, or buzzing in the ears. What is characteristic for this not-so-pleasant noise in the ear is that, as a rule, no external sound sources are responsible for it and that we are not aware that we suffer from it.
The intensity of the buzzing in the ears is not the same, nor is it equal in everyone. It is sometimes very quiet and almost imperceptible, while it can also appear in the form of very loud and unpleasant interferences. When the intensity of buzzing is strong, you become deconcentrated, and sometimes you can even don’t discern other sounds.
Although you can’t cure tinnitus, what you can do is search relief and if possible, reduce it. Here are some of the remedies that you can try out.
How To Treat Tinnitus
- Ginko Biloba
This incredible plant has for centuries been considered one of the best natural brain stimulators. It stimulates circulation in the brain, thus providing maximum oxygen supply and nutrients. Moreover, enhances the cognitive functions. Since tinnitus is often associated with poor circulation, the use of natural ginkgo preparations will help alleviate these problems.
Tinnitus is a very common side effect of a cold, and many of us get it when we get sick. Ginger as well stimulates circulation and destroys pathogens and free radicals. With it, it relieves the unpleasant feeling in the ears that occurs due to tinnitus.
It is a potent antioxidant, improves circulation, and strengthens the central nervous system, it calms, but doesn’t make you sleepy – on the contrary, it provides additional energy. If your ears are ringing and have pressure in the head, this preparation will reduce the discomfort quickly. It’s proven to help in tinnitus.
Cut two cloves of garlic and cook them shortly on olive oil. Take it off the stove and allow it to cool down. Then strain the liquid and add two drops of the oil into one or both ears (if necessary). Repeat twice a day.
- Coenzyme Q10
Studies have shown that coenzyme Q10 is effective in people who have tinnitus. Clearly, everyone’s condition should be treated individually, but in most people, the researchers observed the reduction of unpleasant and irritating sounds in the ear. You can take Coenzyme Q10 either as a supplement or from food.
- Skull drumming technique
First, place your hands on your ears with your fingers supporting your skull. Then place your index fingers on your middle fingers to apply pressure. Last, snap your index fingers on the back of your skull just like you are drumming with them. Repeat the procedure for 40-50 snaps.
Note: If you suffer from tinnitus it’s best to consult with ORL doctor because sometimes tinnitus can be a symptom of a more serious disease like diabetes, a tumor on the ear nerve and so on.
