5 Best Natural Remedies for Treating Tinnitus...


My tinnitus (ringing in the ears) is driving me crazy. What are some natural or home remedies for this condition that work?


Tinnitus is very common and affects nearly 1 in 5 people. It's not actually a condition or disease in itself, but rather, a symptom of an underlying issue within the body. Regardless of the cause, here's 5 sure-fire ways to get rid of (or at the very least, severely lessen) the effects of this annoying problem...

Natural Remedy for Tinnitus #1... Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV): Apple cider vinegar works a treat for tinnitus. One of the major causes of tinnitus (and other ear problems) is fungal/yeast infections and unhealthy organisms in the body, particulary in the ear. ACV treats fungal infections and flushes out pathogens quickly, which is why most suffers enjoy welcome relief in as little as 24 hours.

So all you do is add a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar to a full glass of warm, filtered water. Drink this concoction 3 times daily, 10 minutes before your main meal (on an empty stomach). Alternatively, if you don't like the taste of the apple cider vinegar, you can take the easy swallow ACV capsules instead. For best results (and to keep your tinnitus away permanently), continue to take the ACV indefinitely.

Along with taking the ACV internally, you can also place a few drops of ACV directly into the ears to clean them out and reduce the inflammation. Here's what you do...

Combine 70% ACV with 30% clean, fresh, filtered water. Put solution in a clean, small dropper bottle and place 1/2 dropper in each ear. GENTLY clean out with a cotton bud or tissue. Repeat this treatment twice daily for 7 days.

You can easily buy the apple cider vinegar liquid (must still contain the "mother" apple) or the capsules from most health food stores, or online from places such as Amazon.com. Bragg ACV or Now Foods are two reputable and very reasonably priced brands.

Home Remedy for Tinnitus #2... Ginkgo Biloba: Ginkgo biloba is also considered one of the most effective cures for tinnitus as it plays an important role in improving blood circulation. A lack of blood flow to the ears is another major cause of tinnitus. In addition, ginkgo biloba is antibacterial and anti fungal as well, so it will help to treat any fungal and bacterial infections that may be contributing to the problem.

You can also purchase ginkgo biloba from most well stocked health food stores or online. Dosages are in the range of 120 to 240 mg of the standardized extract. This contains between 24 and 32 percent flavonoids, along with 6 to 12 percent terpenoids (these substances are what give plants their distinctive smell and contain powerful medicinal properties). Take daily in three to four divided doses for a minimum of six weeks for best results.

Natural Treatment for Tinnitus #3... Ginger: Ginger is a simple yet very effective treatment for tinnitus. The healing and medicinal properties contained in ginger help improve blood circulation and destroy unwanted pathogens. Ginger also contains aspirin-like properties to help reduce the pain and inflammation.

To make a ginger tea simply add one-half teaspoon of freshly grated ginger to a full cup of hot water. Add a teaspoon of natural honey (preferably Manuka honey) and allow to steep for 10-15 minutes. Strain and drink 2-3 times a day for at least 3-5 days to ease symptoms.

Natural Cure for Tinnitus #4... Onions: Onions are an old folk home remedy for tinnitus due to their powerful anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Onions also help to thin the blood and increase blood flow.

Simply chop one onion into small pieces and microwave for 1-2 minutes. Allow to cool, then strain out the juice. Place two or three drops of the juice in one ear. Leave in for five minutes before tilting head and draining. Repeat with the other ear. Do this 2-3 times per week for best results.

Home Remedy for Tinnitus #5... Cayenne Pepper: This potent medicinal spice is tremendous for increasing blood flow and boosting the immune system. The incredible anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory properties that cayenne pepper contains makes it one of the "must use" remedies for tinnitus. You can either have 1/2 a teaspoon of the powder mixed in a smoothie every day (and use it in your cooking as much as possible), or if you can't handle the heat (it is quite hot), take the capsules instead.

So hopefully these tips help you get rid of your horrible tinnitus. At the very least, they will definitely make that noise a whole lot softer!

Good luck and all the best to you,
