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
- Ménière’s disease
- Tumors of the ear or brain
- Infections of the ear
- Side effects of medications
- Head injuries
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.
Some homeopathic remedies are used frequently to treat tinnitus include:
- Cactus Grandiflorus
- Calcarea carbonica
- Cannabis indica
- China Officinalis
- Chininum sulphuricum
- Kali Iod
- Phosphoricum Acidum
- Carbo vegetabilis
- Sanguinaria can
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.
