Ringing in the ears can appear at each of us at any moment. If this problem bothers you too often and becomes chronic, it may be a more serious disorder – tinnitus.
Tinnitus is characterized by constant ringing or whistling in the ears. It can affect both one and both ears. These noises appear due to disruption of the pre-cochlear nerve or the accumulation of fluid in the ears.
A person has a sensation of the appearance of extraneous sounds inside the head. This problem can be a symptom of hearing loss.
Therefore, it is very important to determine in time, whether the ringing in the ears is temporary because of the influence of certain external factors or is a more serious problem – chronic tinnitus.
Symptoms that accompany tinnitus

- Whistling and whistling in one or both ears
Causes of Tinnitus
Tinnitus is not so much a disease as a symptom that signals a hearing problem. It can be about the violations and pathological processes, developing in different parts of this complex system of our body. These processes can provoke ringing in the ears.
Diagnosing the exact cause of tinnitus is quite difficult. But it is known that, left unattended, it can lead to hearing loss. Primary tinnitus requires immediate treatment, so when the first signs of this problem should be addressed as soon as possible to the doctor.
There is also a secondary tinnitus. It is not accompanied by hearing loss. The exact reasons for its occurrence remain unknown. In this case, the disease is accompanied by an incessant ringing in the ears.
The human auditory system is quite sensitive to the influence of various factors. Therefore, we can distinguish several causes of tinnitus:
- Accumulation of sulfur in the auricles
- Hair in contact with the tympanic membrane
- Infections of the middle ear and bone hardening in this area
- Exposure to strong noises
- Foreign bodies in the ears
- Physical effect on the area of the ears
- Blood pressure changes
- Drug use
- Vascular disease and obesity
- Tumors in the ears
- Damage to the tympanic membrane
How to cure tinnitus with natural remedies
Although it is necessary to consult a medical specialist for an accurate diagnosis, changing some habits and using a number of natural remedies will help you cope with the unpleasant symptoms of tinnitus.
1. Watch your weight and cholesterol level in your blood
Many patients managed to significantly reduce the symptoms of tinnitus, reducing the amount of “bad” cholesterol in the blood and reducing their body weight by 10%.
2. Healthy Eating
It is recommended to pay more attention to their nutrition and include more vegetables and food rich in vitamins, minerals, proteins and antioxidants in the diet. This will lose weight and reduce the amount of sugar in the blood.
3. Avoid strong noise
People who for one reason or another are regularly exposed to strong noises, are at greatest risk of suffering from tinnitus and hearing loss.
Therefore, it is very important to avoid such situations, and if this is not possible, use special protective equipment that will minimize the negative impact of harmful factors.
4. Refrain from using aspirin and other similar medicines.
Aspirin and other medications of this type contain acetylsalicylic acid, a substance that worsens the course of tinnitus. Also, it is necessary to avoid medical preparations on the basis of the twigs and willows.
Daily exercise, improves blood circulation, which is a good prevention of tinnitus.
6. Drink more water
In order that all organs and systems of the human body (including auditory) work normally, it is necessary to drink enough water. Dehydration can also cause increased tinnitus.
7. Do not allow high blood pressure
Most of us are well aware that increased blood pressure increases the risk of stroke and cardiovascular disease. But few people know that hypertension can also provoke hearing loss and the development of tinnitus.
8. Take time to relax
There are a lot of different relaxation techniques. Relaxation alone cannot cure ringing in the ears, but thanks to it you can cope with nervous tension and overcome anxiety and depression. Violations of the emotional sphere can also provoke the ringing in the ears.
