Tinnitus : Causes, Prevention and Home Remedies

Tinnitus is the perception of sound within the human ear in the absence of corresponding external sound. The most common symptoms of tinnitus are buzzing, hissing, and ringing sound inside the ear. Sometimes these sounds may go along with the patient’s heartbeat.

Tinnitus is not a disease, but a symptom that can result from a wide range of underlying causes: abnormally loud sounds in the ear canal for even the briefest period (but usually with some duration), ear infections, foreign objects in the ear, nasal allergies that prevent (or induce) fluid drain, or wax build-up.

Tinnitus can also be caused by natural hearing impairment (as in aging), as a side effect of some medications, and as a side effect of genetic (congenital) hearing loss. However, the most common cause is noise-induced hearing loss.

There are various home remedies for tinnitus available that give instant relief from the ringing noises.

. Protect your ears form loud noise by wearing a mask over the ears. Many people can get tinnitus when they hear loud noises in their surrounding.

. Reduce your intake of sugar, salt and saturated fats.

. Smoking and alcohol is also not advised during the time you are hearing the noises in your ears.

. Vitamin A and vitamin B rich food should be more in your diet. Also include lots of proteins and zinc to your meals.

. Take 300 mg. a day of Coenzyme Q10.

. Ginkgo biloba is also effective and reduces the dizziness and also helps in regulating the blood flow to the ears.

. Eating pineapples are also one of the very effective home remedies for tinnitus.

. Garlic is also effective in treating the tinnitus conditions. You can include plenty of garlic in your diet.

. Chewing dried fruits helps to increase blood circulation in the ear area.

. Applying hot compresses on the neck or massaging the ear before bedtime serve as effective home remedies for tinnitus due to improper blood circulation.

. Putting a saline solution in the affected ear and draining it out after ten minutes is an effective natural cure for the disease.

. Mix one teaspoon of ghee in one cup of milk and nicely blend the mixture. Drink one cup of his mixture on a regular basis.
