Ear Ringing Treatment – Using Natural Methods[imwb_socialbuzz] By John On April 18, 2012 Under Ringing In Ears
Using Natural Treatment For Ringing In The Ears
Anyone who has suffered persistently with tinnitus or ringing in the ears for any length of time will have discovered by now the medical fraternity has to date not found a cure for tinnitus or even a proper tinnitus treatment.
- 95% of all tinnitus problems stem from cochlea damage which Ellen Currie discusses in this video below.
Exposure to loud noises like the noise levels experienced at live concerts can cause tinnitus, but so can some prescriptions medicines—particularly Valium-type drugs (benzodiazepines) and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (aspirin and ibuprofen, for example).
It may also be caused by health problems, such as allergies, high or low blood pressure, tumors and problems in the heart, blood vessels, jaw or neck.
- You know that ringing in the ears that follows a too-loud concert? For people with tinnitus, that annoying sound never ends. It’s not always ringing, though; tinnitus can cause a constant clicking or hissing sound as well.
- The easiest way to treat tinnitus is to identify and eliminate its cause.
- If the ringing in the ear is due to long-term exposure to loud noise or music, scuba diving or other exposures that have damaged the eardrum, the noise tinnitus (cochlear damage) remedy works extremely well. Some studies have shown magnesium supplementation (150 to 250 mg three times daily) may also help in these cases…
Listed below are some tips and advice form various people with a ringing in the ears from around the world with regard to Apple Cider Vinegar, which is said to very helpful with tinnitus.
03/15/2012: Sherif from Cairo, Egypt: “I’m tinnitus sufferer 4yrs ago, I’m member of lot of tinnintus groups at face book. One person had T 3YRS AGO. SHE USED ANTIFUNGAL for nails containing apple cider vinegar and the tinnitus disappear completely.”
03/15/2012: David from Ixtapa, Mexico replies: “How did she use the cider, just on her nails, did she drink it, etc?”
04/05/2012: North Carolina Resident from Raleigh, Nc replies: “So I think I have tinnitus or at least a ringing in my left ear only, from shootings firearms at our farm. Yes they were not protected I know I was stupid. It’s been ringing for a few weeks almost a month now. My friend’s ears have been ringing over a year now from the same thing. Both ears for him and If it works for me it might work for him.
I’ve been taking 2 tablespoons of ACV in a cup followed by a big cup of warm tea. Should I drink 8oz? or Dilute it? If anyone has any information on what I should do PLEASE EMAIL ME at alexuzzell6991(at)yahoo.com “
01/22/2011: Kristy from Sugar Land, Tx replies: “Have you tried taking the faucet test?
The faucet test involves the following. You stand near the sink and turn the water faucet on fully. Many people with tinnitus are unable to hear tinnitus sounds while standing near or close to running or falling water. One other way is to perform this test while in the shower. If either of these provide some relief then you would likely benefit from technique known as ?masking?.
Many trust a technique known as ?masking? that uses white noise to silence or make the ringing less noticeable or transparent.
This is treatment option is commonly used while undergoing other treatment options.”
JPan for Langhorne, PA on their experiece with Apple Cider Vinegar as a tinnitus treatment…
03/17/2009: J Pan from Langhorne, PA/ USA: “Apple Vinegar Cider
Directions: 8 oz apple vinegar cider , microwave 1 min, mix honey, drink all.
Did it for 3 nights, ringing greatly reduced, nearly gone (keeping fingers crossed). Love this site, love the people, more people should post feedback after using it because for me it was a life saver.
Hope I never have to drink this stuff again tho, it almost made me vomit. But would go through the experience 1 million times to be done with the buzzing.”
03/22/2009: MARGIE from WIGAN, ENGLAND replies: “COULD SOMEONE TELL ME THE MEASUREMENTS FOR THE APPLE CIDER VINEGAR RECIPE FOR TINNITUS. CONFUSED ABOUT WHETHER ITS 8OZ OF WATER OR 80Z OF ACV. THANKS”
EC: You are right! No, 8 OZ of apple cider vinegar would be crazy. Typically one would take either 2 teaspoons or 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in 8 ounces of water…
04/29/2009: J Pan from Langhorne, PA replies: “Oh, I used 8 oz of straight apple vinegar cider. I didn’t dilute with any water. As I said, tasted awful, but I was desperate.”
05/13/2009: Just Toni from Tempe, AZ replies: “J Pan, could you please say how long you had the ringing in your ears before trying this recipe? Days, months, or years? Did you have a recent exposure to a load noise, concert or guns? Or a cold, some kind of flu? Your further input could be helpful to many suffering souls. By the way is it still almost gone?”
08/14/2009: J. Madrigal from Edinburg, Tx replies: “What are the exact measurements for the acv remedy? Is it 8 oz. of apple cider vinegar or 8 oz. of water and 2 tbsps of acv plus the honey? Please respond. Please tell me that this actually works for the tinnitus, I’m really desperate.”
09/22/2009: Trinity from Spokane, Wa replies: “Ok, so Im now as we speak trying the apple cidar vinegar for this ringing in my ears. Ringing started last night, usually goes away, but has not this time. i am also trying garlic willow oil in my ear, (only left ear) i have heard the ringing can be caused by bacteria or virus, or biotics being unbalanced after taking antibiotics. I will keep posted on if any of these worked for me. And yes, the 8oz of acv, is by far the most uncomfortable, and unpleasant taste ever!!!!!! the burn, and taste could make you pass out, but if it works, itll be worth it.”
Then we have some negative reports about using apple cider vinegar to relieve your ringing ears.
Trinity from Spokane, Wa replies: “UPDATE ON ACV——–NAY. WILL NOT TAKE AGAIN. SPENT THE LAST HOUR NAUSEATED, AND FINALLY SPENT SOME TIME THROWING UP!!! RINGING NOT GONE, NOT EVEN DIMINISHED. IF ANYTHING MORE IRRITATED FROM THE VOMITING!!!WILL KEEP SEARCHING FOR CAUSE AND CURE I GUESS. AM LOOKING INTO CANDIDA CAUSES. ONLY TRY THE ACV IF YOU HAVE A VERY VERY TOUGH STOMACH TOLERANCE… TAKE WITH CAUTION.”
09/22/2009: Tricia from Ireland replies: “Trinity – I sincerely hope you are diluting the acv and that it is not neat. If you aren’t it won’t be the ringing in your ears that will cause you concern.”
09/23/2009: Tricia from Ireland replies: “Hi Trinity – my last reply was to your first post. When your throat, stomach and bum (I imagine thats suffering too) has settled and you will need to give it a few days. Try again. This time use only 2 tablespoons of the acv in a full (8oz preferably) glass of water. At the most this should be taken 3 times per day. Vinegar of any kind is exceptionally acidic so you may also need to take some acidophilus to balance your insides again. The more water you drink the faster you will recover from what must have been a pretty horrible couple of hours.”
As we can see there are many people that find apple cider does indeed help to relieve their ringing in the ears symptoms, at least on a temporary basis, whilst others again have found it has not helped at all.
I think what we can gain from this is that many natural methods do help to relieve tinnitus ringing in ears but work better on some individuals than others. This possible could simply because there are many different underlying or root causes of the ringing in the ears.
I suggest you experiment a bit on your own and please feel free to post your comments below. Every little helps!
