How to Get Rid of Ringing in Head

[imwb_socialbuzz] By John On April 11, 2011 Under Ringing In Ears

At some point in our lives, we may have experienced certain noises in our ears. Most of the time, these noises just occur for a very short period of time and will eventually disappear. However, there is a condition that brings about a noise that does not go away and does have any external reason for it to occur. This condition is called tinnitus or more commonly known as ringing of the ears. The noise may be soft or loud and can also sound like a ringing in head, chirping, clicking, buzzing, hissing, roaring or whooshing.

Tinnitus is not actually a disease but rather an indication of a disease. The diseases that can cause it range from those that can be easily managed to medical maladies that would require a more elaborate and complicated treatment. Some of these health conditions include hearing loss, stress, hypertension, Acoustic Neuroma (a kind of tumor in the ear), Otosclerosis, ear and sinus infection, head injuries, and Meneire’s Disease. Getting the right diagnosis of what caused your tinnitus is the first step that you should take. Make sure to pay your physician a visit once you experience these noises.

Although there is no accurate ears ringing cure, there are certain remedies that you can use to alleviate the pain and lessen the intensity of the noise that you hear. They can be conventional or alternative kinds of remedies. Conventional treatments include the intake of medications like anti depressants and Lidocaine. While alternative treatments include traditional practices such as acupuncture, acupressure and yoga and herbal remedies like Gingko Biloba. Masking the ringing in head that comes with this condition can also be done with use of devices such as noise maskers.

Aside from the remedies that you can use, there are also some simple steps that you can do to help yourself cope with the ordeal of tinnitus. The first thing that you should do in avoiding ringing in ear is to try to live a healthier life. You can do so by getting an ample amount of exercise and eating the right kinds of foods especially those rich in Zinc, Magnesium and Vitamin E. Furthermore, try to avoid or stop habits like drinking a huge amount of coffee, smoking cigarettes, drinking alcohol and taking dangerous drugs. This will help you boost your immune system and avoid different kinds of diseases that can cause tinnitus.

Apart from all these things, keep a positive outlook towards life. Remember that although ringing in head can bring an unimaginable discomfort and pain, you can still live a happy life. Never let this bad experience get the best of you but instead try to focus on the things that you can do and by all means, do them.
