    Are there any natural treatments for tinnitus?

    It does depend on what is causing the tinnitus, but Ginkgo biloba can help. It helps with circulation to the ears.

    Yes there are several, the most important being based on essential oils.
    I explore all of this in my hub on the subject
    Kind regards Peter

    Type tinnitus in Internet and you can get a lot of information. I suspect, the neurons responsible for the sterocilia are damaged. Stereocilia are hairs inside the ear that vibrate due to  sound. Air passages to the lungs also have cilia, broom-like that sweep up phlegm that can be disabled by smoking. Cigarette smoke contains x-rays and free radicals. (I have several discussions on free radicals, you may access conradofontanilla.hubpages.com). Multiple sclerosis, like motor neuron disease (amyotrophic lateral sclerois) is caused by free radicals.
    Serotonin may help, you can get it from fruits, or from tryptophan. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter, it is also converted into melatonin that can repair organs. Damage to cell receptor is highly possible; free radicals are responsible for such damage. So antioxidants from vegetables and fruits might help. Free radicals are responsible for atherosclerosis that can result in tinnitus.
    You may not get advice from conventional medicine about free radicals because it does not recognize them as causes of disease. However, integrative medicine recognizes them as causes.
    Aspirin may cause an imbalance between thromboxane and prostacyclin that are prostaglandins that are sometimes responsible for inflammation. A continuous taking of aspirin induces the accumulation of arachidonic acid that may be converted to interleukins, responsible for allergy to any drug (Sears, B. The Zone). Researches must be conducted using the free radical theories of disease as framework.

    There are two main causes for tinnitus. 1 being exposed to loud noises, as in heavy machinery, or nsaids. Among the Nsaids are aspirin, motrin,ibuprofen,aleve, and many prescriptive pain killers. Its one of the side effects. Among the natural supplements for tinnitus include: CoQ10 to increase blood flow to the ears, magnesium as a prevention to damage, and repair the hair cells in the inner ear, as well as pycnogenol. Pycnogenol is a natural anti inflammatory, with one of its proposed uses and benefits being tinnitus. Which would be a two fold solution, reduction in pain medicine, thereby reducing the tendency toward tinnitus.

    My son has a slight hearing loss in one year, due to injuries in a car accident and has developed tinnitus. Based on the advice of two doctors we trust and some independent research, we are trying the hearing aid approach. The idea that by wearing the hearing aid for several hours a day, it will block out the tinnitus, and the effect will last several hours after the hearing aid is removed.  Good hearing aids are not cheap, and we are getting some help on this. At this point, we are waiting for the hearing aid to be fitted. Thus, I cannot provide any comments about results. However, I do not think it is a scam. We were first told of this technique by and ENT doctor who is part of a group that we have been seeing for years for various allergies, sinus infections, etc., so we do trust them. They are not selling the hearing aids, so they are not making any money off of this. They did not recommend any hearing aid vendors. Thus, I think they are presenting objective suggestions.
