Is there a way to stop ringing in the ears?
Tinnitus has been described as the sensation of sound which is not audible to other people. It’s usually described by those suffering from it as noises in the ears which range from ringing in the ears, sizzling in the ears, buzzing in the ears and whistling in the ears – all sounds that only the sufferer can hear.
There are a variety of disorders which cause tinnitus. A trip to an ear nose and throat doctor can often determine the cause and sometimes prescribe a cure.
Tinnitus noises in the ears are physically harmless however it is a debilitating disorder which affects millions of people, both adults and children, worldwide. The symptoms of tinnitus can range from being mildly irritating causing little discomfort to sending people to the brink of mental illness, this is due to them experiencing tinnitus as highly disturbing ear noises that affect their emotional and spiritual as well as their physical well-being.
Tinnitus can cause lack of sleep stress and extreme distress. It can also affect concentration levels and lead to anger, dismay and other behavioral problems. So it’s important that all tinnitus sufferers have a self-help plan in place to get them through those bad days when they can’t stop noises in the ears.
The problem with tinnitus ear noise is that it is very often difficult to treat. There are some people, who have found an underlying problem for their tinnitus which is treatable through medical intervention, but for others there is often no known reason why they have developed tinnitus or it is an untreatable illness which they have to learn to live with.

- Diet – A well balanced diet is important to stop noises in the ears, there is some anecdotal proof that certain foods may be a trigger to making symptoms worse, so if your symptoms increase after a meal, take note of what you’ve eaten and jot it down, if it happens again, then that may be a food product you need to avoid. Dairy products are thought to affect some people badly, also excessive salt and wheat products. Drinking plenty of water usually helps as it maintains body hydration.
- Alcohol and Cigarettes – These are thought to be a trigger for increased tinnitus, if you smoke or drink, either decrease or give up your consumption for a while and see if your symptoms improve.
- Increased Emotions – Such behaviors as being short tempered, being stressed or in an emotionally distressed condition may make the problem worse, so looking at alternative therapies to reduce stress and anger may assist in reducing your symptoms of tinnitus.
