Tinnitus Treatment Now

Updated on November 5, 2009

Change Your Approach for a Tinnitus Treatment

If you are searching for a cure for tinnitus (ringing or other sounds in your ear(s)), you won't find one. Your doctor will tell you there is no medical cure and you you will just need to live with it. The main reason is that tinnitus is not a disease in itself. You cannot pass tinnitus to another person. Tinnitus is actually a symptom (or side effect) of something else. Instead of focusing your search for a tinnitus cure, you should be looking for a tinnitus treatment. You need to change your mindset and approach tinnitus treatment from a form of alternative medicine perspective.

Here are the different approaches to tinnitus treatment:

- Acupuncture to bring the body back into balance by applying thin needles to pressure points on the body
- Hypnosis to help the sufferer take their mind off the noise
- Cochlear Implants to electrically suppress the tinnitus by wearing an electrical device in your ear
- Masking the noise by replacing the tinnitus noise with a more soothing sound
- Reduce one's stress by becoming more aware of what's causing the stress and acting upon it to reduce the stress
- Meditation and yoga to calm and relax the body
- Homeopathy through the use of natural remedies/herbs. It is this area that has shown the most positive impacts to sufferers
- Change in lifestyle by eating more healthy (avoiding certain food that causes tinnitus), exercising regularly, and getting enough sleep
- Tinnitus Retraining Therapy (TRT) to reprogram the brain to ignore the tinnitus noise
- Laser Treatment to reinvigorate the damaged ear nerve endings

As you can see from the above list, there are so many approaches to tinnitus treatment. Which one should you follow? The first step you must follow is to visit your doctor or an ENT (Ear Nose Throat) specialist to rule out any physical damage. It could be as simple as an earwax removal as this is also one of the causes of tinnitus.

Once any physical problem is ruled out and they tell you that there is nothing wrong, then you take the next step which is finding the root cause of your tinnitus yourself. It is important that you educate yourself to the various causes and treatments of tinnitus.
