(NaturalNews) Tinnitus is an annoying condition affecting the ears, which can seriously diminish a person's hearing. A multitude of distracting sounds such as ringing, hissing and buzzing can be heard which are often maddening and interfere with daily life. Tinnitus often develops after exposure to loud noise, ear infections or injuries affecting nerve endings. Conventional medicine has no cure; however, there are certain holistic and natural treatments for tinnitus, as well as home remedies, that can alleviate its effects, making it easier to hear.

Supplements and foods

Ginkgo biloba

Ginkgo biloba helps increase blood flow to the neck, head and brain. Additionally, it reduces inflammation in blood vessels, promoting better circulation to the capillaries feeding the nerves surrounding the ear. Taking ginkgo is not a fast fix for tinnitus, and it takes time to relieve the problem. It's best to use it in combination with other remedies to relieve ringing or other noises in the ears from tinnitus.

CoEnzyme Q10 (CoQ10)

Previous clinical trials were conducted to ascertain the effects of CoEnzyme Q10 on patients with tinnitus. In 2007, the journal of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery reported those findings, noting that CoQ10 may be helpful for certain people for reducing noises in the ears from tinnitus depending on the nature of their condition.

Additionally, chiropractor Dr. James Fettig recommends taking CoQ10 to relieve tinnitus symptoms. He discusses how the supplement generates energy in cell mitochondria helping to prevent heart attacks and strokes as well as ringing in the ears by increasing overall blood flow. He recommends 200 mg of high potency, highly absorbable CoQ10 daily. Consult your natural health practitioner for personalized dosing guidelines.


Caffeine may reduce the flow of blood to the head, neck and ears constricting capillaries and other small blood vessels. This can, in turn, aggravate your tinnitus symptoms.


High salt intake can raise blood pressure, causing tinnitus and hypertension. If you are susceptible to the effects of sodium, reducing your salt intake is an important step in helping to lower your blood pressure and possibly reduce the intensity of the ringing in your ears.

Noise management

Loud noises

Avoid exposure to loud noises and music to protect ears. Loud noises can cause additional damage to the ear, and be extremely painful to those with existing tinnitus.

White noise

Using a white noise generator or fan during sleep helps mask noises providing relief for some people from the ringing in their ears. The gentle noises produced by the equipment creates a distraction, which dims the noises of tinnitus, according to the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association website.

Mechanical solutions

Wax buildup

Many people suffering from tinnitus may experience hearing loss because of wax buildup in the ears. The American Tinnitus Association suggests visiting an audiologist to have your ears checked and the condition assessed before taking more aggressive measures. When excess ear wax is removed, some hearing may be regained reducing the interference and noise from the tinnitus.

Finger drumming technique

The following method may reduce the ringing in your ears, suggests Dr. Jan Strydom, of A2Z of Health, Beauty and Fintess.org. Place the palms of your hands over your ears with fingers resting gently on the back of your head. Your middle fingers should point toward one another just above the base of your skull. Place your index fingers on top of you middle fingers and snap them (the index fingers) onto the skull making a loud, drumming noise. Repeat 40-50 times. Some people experience immediate relief with this method. Repeat several times a day for as long as necessary to reduce tinnitus.
