Tinnitus home treatments

Tinnitus is defined as the sensation of sound arising without the action of any external acoustic stimuli. There are two types of tinnitus:

  • objective tinnitus is one that can be heard by both the patient and people in the environment, resulting from the production of sounds inside the body,
  • subjective tinnitus can only be heard by a sick person. They may be the result of disturbances in the work of the central nervous system or other element of the auditory system.

Tinnitus can also be a symptom of an incorrect lifestyle, so it's worth considering what causes it and makes it more severe for us. The most common causes of tinnitus are:

  • frequent exposure to noise,
  • excessive stress.
  • some types of medication (e.g. large amounts of Aspirin),
  • incorrect diet (e.g. salt, caffeine drinks: coffee, cola, energy drinks),
  • alcohol, cigarettes and other drugs
  • diseases of the spine, cardiovascular system and neurological diseases.

Tinnitus may increase in silence. In such cases, relief will be achieved by listening to the radio, playing soft background music or running the fan. It is also worth trying a stationary white noise generator that calms, relaxes and makes it easier to fall asleep to patients with tinnitus.

There are many home remedies for tinnitus relief for those seeking natural methods. Emotions, and hence stress, are very important in our lives. This is a factor that enhances hearing tinnitus, so an important aspect of therapy is to minimize it. Even 15 minutes of deep relaxation can relieve stress and improve mood. Good relaxation exercises are:

  • yoga,
  • Tai-chi,
  • meditation,
  • gradual muscle relaxation
  • guide classes,
  • adequate amount of sleep.

These are exercises that, combined with leading a healthy lifestyle, can help to reduce tinnitus. The following links contain some of the loosening techniques:
