Natural Tinnitus Cure - Is There a Natural Remedy to Cure Tinnitus?

Updated on July 18, 2011

What Is Tinnitus?

Do you have ringing in your ears?  Then you may be suffering from a condition known as tinnitus.  Tinnitus isn't a disease.  It is simply a a condition that affects the ears and hearing.

Almost everyone has suffered from tinnitus at some point. Usually people have tinnitus symptoms after being exposed to loud noise over a prolonged time, such as at a concert or construction site.

Tinnitus Symptoms

Tinnitus symptoms are rarely severe.  Some people may not even realize they have tinnitus. However, there are approximately two million cases of tinnitus where tinnitus symptoms are so severe that they completely disrupt lives. Tinnitus can affect people of all ages.

There are different ways to help with tinnitus symptoms.  We will discuss natural ways to help relieve tinnitus symptoms.

Natural Tinnitus Cure for Some

First we will discuss the tinnitus masker.  if you only have mild hearing loss, a tinnitus masker may be for you.  Similar to hearing aids, but tinnitus maskers don't increase volume of sounds.  Instead they produce a sound that masks the annoying ringing in your ears.  The tinnitus masker also trains your brain to ignore the ringing noise.

Some people have great success using a tinnitus masker.  Others say that they are effective, but are still annoyed with ringing noises in their ears.

Treat Tinnitus Symptoms With Retraining Therapy

Retraining therapy is another way to treat tinnitus symptoms.  It is often effective for people that don't have good results with tinnitus maskers.

Retraining therapy works at relieving tinnitus symptoms using professional therapy and training to ignore background noises.  Retraining therapy for tinnitus requires regular visits to the doctor and the ability for the patient to be honest and open.  It works by helping the nervous system to block the ringing sounds from reaching the brain.

Try These for a Natural Tinnitus Cure

There are natural supplements available to help cure tinnitus as well. They help some people with tinnitus symptoms, and others have little to no relief.

Many people claim that drinking a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar mixed in a glass of water once or twice a day will cure tinnitus. I don't know if it's an effective tinnitus cure, but it's worth a shot. You probably have apple cider vinegar in your kitchen right now!

Tinnitus Cure Warning

These are the most common ways to cure tinnitus and help with tinnitus symptoms.  They are not completely effective for everyone.  Sometimes different therapies and medications have to be tried before finding an effective cure for tinnitus.

If you've tried natural cures for tinnitus and other tinnitus remedies with no results, you should contact your physician. You may have a more serious condition that needs to be diagnosed.

      Are you in search for instant cure for tinnitus? It’s quite common to have mild tinnitus, and around one in 10 people are occasionally affected. One in 200 people have tinnitus so badly that it affects their ability to lead a normal life. Tinnitus is the perception of sounds in the absence of an outside source. More details please log on

      Great hub! I find using a Tinnitus masker, or white noise, is really helpful if my ears are ringing at bedtime. If I can't hear that particular noise I can usually get to sleep and by morning my ears will have actually stopped ringing.

      Thanks for this information. I had this once for three weeks. It was horrible. But fortunately it didn't affect me hearing.
