10 Natural Remedies that can Effectively Cure Tinnitus
Tinnitus is dubbed a symptom that a person experiences due to imbalances or disturbances that occur in the inner ear. The affected individuals report hearing sounds intermittently or continuously in the absence of any external stimuli; moreover, the sounds could range from ringing, buzzing, humming, whistling, screeching or hissing; and may vary from low to high pitch.
What Causes Tinnitus?
You’ll normally experience this symptom if you’ve damaged a nerve or hair cell; or else a muscular or vascular malady can bring on tinnitus. Other probable reasons include:
- Persistent exposure to loud noise
- Viral infections
- Meniere’s disease
- Wax accumulation in the ear
- Medication side effects
- Age advancement
- Head injury
- Acidic PH of the body
- Increased levels of Stress
Is there a Tinnitus Cure?
Conventional medicines prescribe antibiotics, anticonvulsants, and antidepressants as the first line of treatment. However, these medicines do not address the root cause and merely offer symptomatic relief. Moreover, side effects and other complications are often reported with these drugs.
Are there any Natural Remedies That Treat Tinnitus?
Thankfully, natural remedies of tinnitus that have been in use traditionally since centuries have started getting mainstream attention and a lot of scientific research is being carried out to verify the therapeutic claims that alternative and ancient streams of medicine have been advocating.
This helps our cause because we at Biogetica have always believed in the miraculous powers of nature and have time and again witnessed the fact that Nature heals when all else fails. Our doctors meticulously research and imbue ingredients that are versatile, safe, easily available, and have been studied for their medicinal properties. Our protocols such as the Biogetica Freedom Kit with OM 10 Formula and Biogetica Essentials Kit with T17 Tinnitease Formula integrate evidence-based ingredients including nutritional supplements, herbal extracts, and bioenergetic homeopathic remedies, some of which we’ve listed below.
So, here’s a list of the 10 most renowned and popular natural remedies backed by historical evidence or clinical research and also imbibed in our protocols:
- Ginkgo biloba
This herb is traditionally believed to be endowed with versatile therapeutic properties and is said to increase blood flow to the neck, head and brain. It also potentially enhances circulation to the capillaries that supply the nerves surrounding the ear. A double blind randomized study highlighted that oral administration of ginkgo appeared to safely and effectively alleviate symptoms associated with tinnitus. 1 Biogetica amalgamates Ginkgo with other evidence based ingredients to potentially improve auditory functions in its multidisciplinary protocol.
- CoEnzyme Q10
Several clinical trials have highlighted the therapeutic significance of Coenzyme Q10. CoQ10 supplementation has been widely used for mitochondrial and neurodegenerative disorders. A pilot clinical trial to ascertain the effects of coenzyme Q10 on chronic tinnitus aurium reported that CoQ10 supplementation may decrease tinnitus expression. 2 Biogetica’s Natural Protocol for ear Support combines CoQ10 with other vital nutrients and ingredients to potentially promote the healthy functioning of the ear and its related systems.
- Curcuma longa
Extensive clinical research has highlighted antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and antifungal powers of the curcuminoids present in curcuma longa. A number of laboratory studies have found curcumin safe and effective for repairing free radical damage in humans. Because of its potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, curcuma is considered a valuable entity in boosting immunity and reducing the activity of inflammatory chemicals and inflammatory mechanisms in the ears. Biogetica’s Cardivas contains this herb along with other effective natural ingredients traditionally used for ear health.
- Allium sativum (Garlic)
Garlic has been extensively studied for its role in reducing inflammation, improving blood circulation and reducing plaque buildup in the small artery that leads to the cochlea, boosting immunity and inhibiting free radical proliferation. Since free radical damage leads to destruction of hair cells and neurons that may progress to hearing loss and vestibular disturbances; garlic, with its intrinsic antioxidant properties is said to play an important role in alleviating ototoxicity. An in vivo analysis also suggested that garlic attenuated antibiotic induced hearing loss. 3 Biogetica incorporates Garlic with other evidence based ingredients in its Biogetica Essentials Kit with T17 Tinnitease Formula.
This micronutrient is essential for regulating several biochemical processes governing the skin, intestines, central nervous system, immune, skeletal, and reproductive systems. Zinc helps with hormone production, growth and regeneration, improves immunity and facilitates digestion. It potentially possesses anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. A randomized, prospective, placebo-controlled study highlighted that patients with tinnitus may have low blood zinc levels and clinical as well as subjective improvement can be achieved by oral zinc medication. 4 Biogetica’s Cardivas combines zinc with other potent and bioactive ingredients for maximum benefit.
Clinical studies have indicated that ginseng improves mood, reduces stress, enhances brain functions, boosts immunity, regulates blood sugar, and fights inflammation. An In vitro study investigating protective effects of the Korean red ginseng extract on cisplatin-induced sensorineural hearing loss and serious tinnitus reported that the extract inhibited the mechanisms that lead to cisplastin induced toxicity thus preventing ototoxicity in the auditory cell line. 5
- Aegle marmelos (Bilva)
This herb has great medical significance in Ayurveda due to its versatile properties that potentially increase circulation to the ears, assist in maintaining normal auditory functions, benefit blood sugar, relieve inflammation, cleanse the head and sinuses, inhibit free radicals, and improve microcirculation of any sense organ.
- Withania somnifera (Ashwagandha)
This herb is famous for its multifarious properties that include boosting your supply of antioxidants and regulating the immune system. Ayurvedic traditional medicine considers this herb an adaptogen and many clinical studies have investigated is effect on the heart, nerves, joints, brain, etc. A clinical trial conducted to determine the efficacy of Bilva and Ashwagandha in Tinnitus complaints reported that both the herbs potentially alleviated Tinnitus and promoted regeneration at the cellular level. 6
Ashwangandha is an important constituent of Biogetica’s protocol formulated for potentially protecting and maintaining healthy auditory functions.
This natural Ingredient is traditionally believed to boost blood supply by dilating blood vessels that increase blood circulation to the ears. Scientific support highlights that ginger may alleviate symptoms of nausea, vomiting and motion sickness and preliminary studies indicate that ginger possesses antimicrobial potential and reduces inflammation and pain. Cell culture studies also show that ginger has antioxidant properties.
- Individualized Homeopathic ingredients
Homeopathy is a form of medicine that incorporates bioenergetic impressions of intended organs, tissues and secretions that work on the principle of like cures like to coax the body into functioning optimally. Homeopathy also incorporates herbal tinctures and other natural ingredients.
Some of the important homeopathic ingredients traditionally used in tinnitus include:
- A blend of potentized bioenergetic impressions of the Auditory nerve, Cerebral cortex, and Cochlea that provides bio-energetic information on optimal ear functions, thereby potentially coaxing the ears to function normally.
- A combination of Chenopodium 30; Chinin Sulph 30; and Conium 30 that potentially helps restore a sense of balance to the ears. The preparation may help by strengthening the auditory nerve and reducing the unpleasant sensations in the ears.
- Remedies like China, Iris versicolor and Formica rufa that potentially help in attenuating the ringing effect in the ears.
Our multidisciplinary kits combine ayurvedic herbs, advanced resonance homeopathy and ground breaking nutraceuticals. These natural ingredients potentially improve the functioning of the auditory nerve, balance the energy meridians and nervous system, stimulate the inner-ear to maintain its equilibrium in pressured states, improve blood supply to the ears, reduce wax formation and help drain excess fluid from the ears.
