Natural Treatment of Tinnitus

Tinnitus Tinnitus is a very common symptom that consists of a roaring or ringing sound in the ears. It affects people differently, and treatment may depend upon the cause. However, in many cases, the cause can’t be firmly established, and Dr. Stephen Geller Katz, a leading New York City tinnitus treatment psychotherapist, says  some treatments are helpful for all types of tinnitus.

Why Try A Natural Treatment for Tinnitus?

Doctors don’t have one medication that works for all patients with tinnitus. Tinnitus is the result of damage to a structure of the ear, and it results in dampening the external signals, causing the brain to produce internally generated noise. There are a number of treatments that can address the symptoms of tinnitus, no matter what the cause. Herbal treatments are often effective, and they don’t always have the unpleasant side effects that can result from medications. Antidepressants and antianxiety drugs that doctors use to try to reduce symptoms of tinnitus can be poorly tolerated by many patients. Herbal remedies often have centuries of anecdotal evidence, and recent studies have show that there is real science behind the use of supplements, herbs, and other natural treatment strategies.

Herbal Treatments for Tinnitus

Herbal treatments for tinnitus have been effective for many people. These treatments include black cohosh, an herb that improves circulation by dilating blood vessels. Rehmannia is an ancient herb that has been in use for centuries in China and other Southeast Asian traditional cultures. Recent studies have shown that rehmannia increases antioxidant activity in the auditory cells, which limits free radical damage that contributes to tinnitus. Gingko biloba is another ancient herbal supplement that is frequently used in modern medicine, particularly in other countries where the use of herbs is more widely understood. Scientific studies have recently shown that gingko biloba is useful for the treatment of a number of disorders, including tinnitus. It is an antioxidant, and it also increases blood circulation.

Vitamins and Minerals

Tinnitus There is strong evidence that vitamin and mineral supplementation can reduce

symptoms associated with tinnitus. One study, published in the American Journal of Otolaryngology, showed that magnesium supplementation helped people with tinnitus improve their symptoms, especially when the tinnitus was related to hearing loss. Another study, by the Institute of Noise Hazards Research, found that many people with tinnitus as a result of noise related hearing loss had a deficiency of B12, and these people experienced improvement after supplementation of their diet with vitamin B12. Some people report improvement of symptoms of tinnitus after taking niacin or thiamine supplements. Finally, people with tinnitus may have a zinc deficiency, and a study performed at St. Marianna University School of Medicine in 1997 found that zinc supplementation improved symptoms in these patients.

Does Acupuncture Work?

Tinnitus Controlled studies, the best form of medical evidence, shows that acupuncture can improve tinnitus. It doesn’t work for everyone, but it may be worth a visit to a traditional practitioner of Chinese medicine.

Magnet Therapy

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) has been shown to affect the circuits of the brain. Early studies show that it can help improve tinnitus. TMS is used to treat depressions, and researchers feel it is probably most useful in treatment of tinnitus among patients who have a large psychological component to their symptoms. Further study is needed, and Dr. xxxx, one of NYC’s leading tinnitus treatment psychotherapists says the jury is still out, although evidence points towards some value of TMS therapy for treatment of tinnitus.

Ear Wax Removal for Tinnitus Treatment

Ear Wax Removal for Tinnitus TreatmentFor some people, the first treatment for tinnitus will be the removal of ear wax. Even if you cannot see a significant buildup of ear wax in your ear, it may be present. For those who have developed tinnitus, or a ringing in the ear or noise in the ear, and who may have only recently begun to experience this type of noise, it may be due to the presence of ear wax. It is always a good idea to work closely with your doctor in New York City to learn more about your tinnitus symptoms. However, for many people, the first step I treatment is to remove the buildup.

Do You Have Excessive Buildup?

Ear Wax Removal for Tinnitus TreatmentEar wax is naturally produced. It is a normal component to healthy ears because the wax itself helps to protect the ear drum and inner ear. However, it is very common for wax to build up and not naturally or efficiently remove itself from the inner. If you imagine the buildup of this material in the ear, it is easy to see why you may struggle with hearing loss. The material itself can also create a place for noise to vibrate. Those vibrations can lead to tinnitus.

If the wax buildup you have touches the ear drum, this will cause a change in the pressure present in your ear. It also changes the way the ear drum vibrates. As a result, you’ll hear the movement and vibrations and, in some cases, develop tinnitus.

How Is Ear Wax Removed?

In some cases, you can begin to remove some of the exterior buildup of wax in a safe way. Do not place anything in the ear – especially anything that can push the material further into it. It is best to allow your doctor to take care of the removal process. The goal is to use ear drops to help remove the build-up in a safe and natural way. You do not want to use any type of cotton tip products. And, for a few days, do not use any type of in-ear earphones. These can further push the material into the ear.

Ear Wax Removal for Tinnitus TreatmentIt is a very important step to consider turning to a professional for help with this type of wax buildup as well as help with tinnitus itself. Several treatment options exist that could help to reduce your risk of developing complications.
