Watch the video below for additional important information regarding the causes of ringing in the ears and tinnitus.
“Ringing in the ears is called tinnitus. It happens when delicate cells inside your ear that send sound messages to your brain are injured or over-stimulated. These cells have projections on them that look like hairs, and they are called “hair cells”. The perception of sound starts when pressure waves moving through the air reach your ears.
Sounds like a lot of confusion going on the there doesn’t it!
“When Superman’s ears rang at frequencies no one else could hear, it was usually bad news. But before you think that you’re gaining superhuman powers and are about to hear Lois Lane or some other poor, trapped soul’s pleas to be rescued, dear mystery man or woman of steel, you should know that many people (besides Superman and yourself) experience ringing in their ears.
Head noises such as ringing, perceived when there is no external source, are collectively known as tinnitus. The sounds you may hear range from ringing to buzzing, chirping, beating, humming, and roaring. But you are not alone. The American Tinnitus Association (ATA) estimates that nearly 50 million Americans have experienced tinnitus in one form or another. While many people only hear these noises sporadically and for a short period of time, tinnitus can be a more constant and even debilitating problem for some.
As you have seen, it is really important to be well informed as to what makes your ears ring in order to prevent further damage and future problems.

Most everyone experiences ringing in the ears at some point in their life and there’s no reason for concern. It’s often a temporary condition caused by exposure to loud noises such as those you would hear at a concert or when passing by a construction zone. Of course, constant exposure to loud noises can cause permanent damage to your ears, so this is something that you should be aware of and try to avoid.
Loud noises are not the only thing that can cause temporary tinnitus. Certain medicines or allergies can cause this problem or a bad sinus infection could be the culprit. In these cases, finding out the problem will make it possible for you to treat the cause and usually clear up the tinnitus.
“Hearing loss from noise exposure is permanent and irreversible but completely preventable. Hearing protection should be worn in the workplace and at home when you are around loud noise.
Some ways to know if noise is too loud is:
· If you have trouble understanding normal conversation with someone two feet away.
· If you have prolonged ringing or other noises after leaving a noisy area.
· If you have difficulty hearing speech, television, etc. for a few hours after being in noise.
Many people experience “ringing in the ears” or tinnitus, which is often described as buzzing, ringing, hissing, humming, roaring or whistling that someone hears. More that 50 million people in the U.S. have this condition, according to the American Tinnitus Association.”
There are however, times when ringing in the ears is a cause for concern. If you begin hearing a ringing sound for no apparent reason or if the ringing sounds are constant and have lasted for awhile, it’s time to see your doctor. It may be something simple and proper treatment can eliminate the sound.
- However, the ringing could be the symptom of some disease or medical condition that needs immediate attention and the ringing sounds may be the only symptom you have.
Anytime you experience ringing in the ears and you’re not sure why, when it persists for long periods or when it becomes uncomfortable to live with and disrupts your normal way of life, its cause for concern. If left untreated, it can interfere with your sleep, career, family and social life. The first step to a solution is trying to determine what your symptoms are and when they began. The cause will help you find a treatment that works.

What IS Ringing In Ears?
We get this question so often! In this day and age I really believe that children should be tought at an early age hpw dangerous exposure to loud noise can be. Virtually every child has an iPod, PS3 or XBox that can pump out extremely loud sounds. Often they will use in-ear headphones with the volume turned up to the max. The damage to hearing thus begins at a very early age, and they don’t even know about the dangers.
“Ringing in the Ears (Tinnitus)
Many people experience an occasional ringing (or roaring, hissing, buzzing, or tinkling) in their ears.
The sound usually lasts only a few minutes. Ringing in the ears that does not get better or go away is called tinnitus. You may hear a sound, such as a ringing or roaring, that does not come from your surroundings (nobody else can hear it). The sound may keep time with your heartbeat, it may keep pace with your breathing, it may be constant, or it may come and go.
Tinnitus is most common in people older than age 40. Men have problems with tinnitus more often than women.”
- Below are some other ringing in ears I found from around the web.
Tinnitus or “ringing in the ears” is a condition that many people are familiar with—either they experience it occasionally or they know someone who does. But for some, it is a chronic condition that can make day-to-day functioning very difficult.”
The Better Hearing Institute (BHI), a non-profit educational organization, surveyed 230 hearing health professionals in Canada and the United States and found that six out of ten patients reported some relief of their tinnitus when using hearing aids and two out of ten reported major relief. Your audiologist can also recommend other treatment options that may be appropriate such as sound machines and tinnitus masker devices.”

Only homeopathic treatment for ringing in the ears have consistently been found to be very effective in the relief of tinnitus and ear ringing.
Many times tinnitus can be triggered by a buildup of ear wax, ear infection or even water in the ear. Proper cleaning and medical treatment will help stop the ringing in your ears caused by these conditions.
Your diet, exercise and sleep patterns can also have an effect on ringing ears, stress, overwork, exhaustion etc. can make the ringing worse. Learning to eat healthy, maintain regular exercise and allow your body proper time to rest is a start for stopping the ringing. Meditation, acupuncture, therapy and even crafts can help relieve stress and help reduce the ringing.
While there is no cure for tinnitus once it has begun, there are many instances where the underlying cause is remedied and the tinnitus goes away. As annoying as the ringing is you should take its presence as a hint to visit your doctor, have your health and hearing checked and attempt to find the cause. There’s a possibility that a serious condition that could rob you of your hearing is the culprit, but by discovering and treating it early you not only preserve your hearing but also stop the ringing.
Because physicians don’t acknowledge a cure for tinnitus it may be difficult to get a recommendation for tips and strategies to relieve the ringing, this is when a tinnitus support group can be helpful. Sufferers share their successes and disappointments with different natural and homeopathic remedies, lifestyle changes and other ways they’ve sought to stop the ringing in their ears.
Everyone is different and just because something does or does not work for one person doesn’t mean that you will have the same results. Seek homeopathic remedies and relief with an open mind and you will probably find what works for you!
