Our ears play some of the most vital roles in our survival but we often pay too little attention when it comes to the proper care of our ears. Because of this, many of us might have to go through the ordeal that ear problems bring. One of the unwanted ear conditions that affect millions of people all over the world is tinnitus or also known as ringing in the ears. A person with tinnitus usually hears an incessant noise in one or both ears that does not have any external source. What actually makes it very frightening is not only because it does have an accurate tinnitus cure but also because it is not exactly a disease but only a symptom of underlying medical problem. The good news is that there are certain things that we can do to avoid the syptoms of ringing in ears. Some of them are as follows:
1. Protect your ears from loud noises – one of the most common causes of tinnitus is hearing loss which is often caused by the exposure to loud noises. As much as can, try to avoid staying in noisy environments such factories, airstrips, disco houses and concerts but if you have to stay in these places, make sure to wear the proper ear protection such as earplugs and earmuffs. Apart from that, minimize the volume and the use of audio devices such ipods, mp3s, mobile phones and many others.
2. Check the kind of medicine that you are taking – ototoxicity is one of the causes of tinnitus and this is brought about by the intake of ototoxic drugs such some kinds of antibiotics, antidepressants and aspirin. Try to check whether the drug you are taking is causing your tinnitus or might cause tinnitus.
3. Live healthy – hypertension and heart diseases may be caused by unhealthy lifestyles. These diseases often lead to tinnitus. Before it happens to you or before you ever have to look for some tinnitus remedies, start living healthy. It is as simple as eating the right kinds of foods, having the right amount of exercise and avoiding harmful substances like alcohol, caffeine and nicotine.
