A lot of buzz is being made about natural tinnitus remedies and their ability to cure tinnitus once and for all. However, how do you know that these remedies really work? In this article I am going to talk about some natural remedies for tinnitus and whether they have any merit or not.
One natural remedy for tinnitus that I recently heard about is eating more pickles. Now, I enjoy pickles, and they aren’t bad for you, but I really don’t see where they can stop the ringing in your ears. Drinking pickle juice has been shown to reduce cramps, and many athletes will drink pickle juice when their muscles become dehydrated. However, based on my research and experimentation, I don’t think it is a suitable cure for tinnitus.
Another cure that I recently heard about is aromatherapy. This seems to have some merit, because aromatherapy has been shown to put people in a relaxed and calm state. However, people suffering from tinnitus will only benefit from aromatherapy if their tinnitus is due to stress or anxiety, which most of the time is not the underlying problem. This method might work, but it’s not one you want to put a lot of faith in.
Another one of the natural remedies for tinnitus that is getting a lot of attention is increasing vitamin B-12 in your diet. I am not a doctor and I do not give medical advice; however, consulting with your doctor and starting a vitamin regimen can be a great way to help control your tinnitus.
