Tinnitus is the perception of sound in the absence of an external source. It can be described as a ringing, buzzing, hissing, whistling, or clicking sound. Tinnitus can be caused by a variety of factors, including:
Exposure to loud noise
Age-related hearing loss
Tumors of the ear or brain
Infections of the ear
Side effects of medications
Homeopathy is a holistic and symptomatic medicine that uses natural substances to treat disease. Homeopathic remedies are typically diluted and shaken many times before they are taken. This process is believed to create a “vibration” to help the body heal itself.
There is evidence that homeopathy is effective in treating tinnitus. A small study published in the journal Otology & Neurotology in 2016 found that vitamin B12 supplementation could improve tinnitus symptoms in people with a cobalamin (B12) deficiency. In homeopathy, there are about 250 remedies for tinnitus. But a patient will need one medicine at a time depending on his overall symptoms.

It is important to note that there is no one-size-fits-all treatment for tinnitus. The best way to find out if homeopathy can help you is to talk to a qualified and experienced homeopath.
Here are some general tips for managing tinnitus:
Avoid loud noise. This is the most important thing you can do to prevent tinnitus from getting worse.
Get enough sleep. When you’re sleep-deprived, your hearing is more sensitive to noise, which can make tinnitus worse.
Reduce stress. Stress can trigger or worsen tinnitus. Find healthy ways to manage stress, such as yoga, meditation, or exercise.
Wear earplugs or earmuffs in noisy environments. This will help protect your hearing from further damage.
See a qualified homeopath. If you have tinnitus, it’s important to see an ENT specialist to rule out any underlying medical conditions.
In most cases, tinnitus is curable with classical homeopathy.
