Tinnitus is that persistent sound in the ear, a ringing, buzzing, ticking, screaming, hissing, whistling or tingling or whooshing sound that sufferers hear when there is no such external sound actually present.
It can result from extensive exposure to persistent and very loud noises as well as other otologic disorders that are the underlying cause for loss of hearing. Sometimes tinnitus has no discernable cause.
It could be continuous or intermittent and conventional therapy has been seen to be of limited use for this problem. It is thought that alternative therapy for tinnitus could offer hope for sufferers.
- Gingko Biloba can help with degenerative conditions by improving oxygenated blood flow and circulation and may also help with tinnitus.
- Salicylic Acid in its homeopathic formulation is also thought to improve conditions induced by tinnitus.
- Herbal supplement formulated on the principles of phytotherapy can also provide relief from tinnitus symptoms, it is thought.
- Avena Sativa and herbal supplements such as TinnaRex are also thought to help with tinnitus by improving circulation, curing ear infection, and improve hearing by restoring one’s auditory capabilities.
