Ok y'all, let's talk about some of the natural tinnitus cures that are out there. These are the home remedies that your grandmother made you drink when you were a kid. You know, that nasty stuff that she would give you for a cold if she heard you sniffling or sneezing...yeah THAT STUFF! As much as we hated it, it turns out that grandma was right. And it's only right now that we are finding out that some of those old home remedies did actually work.
Now for those of you that never had to experience the wonder and fulfilling taste of natural home remedies...(uugghhh!) They were definitely an acquired taste! For those of you that are wondering why some of us would even take some of these things, well, let's just say that not all of us had health insurance growing up. That problem still exists today and people everywhere are looking for more effective and inexpensive ways to treat some of the most common ailments that plague us all today, tinnitus being among them.
First of all, it is important to note that if you have tinnitus, you need to know what type of tinnitus you have. Oh yeah, there are different types of tinnitus. The reason that this is important is because not all treatments will work for everybody, including natural treatments. So it would behoove you to see your family physician first, BEFORE you try anything. If you don't have a family physician then allow me to give you the different types of tinnitus:
1. Objective Tinnitus - Objective tinnitus is the one kind of tinnitus that can actually be heard by your doctor. It makes a crackling or clicking noise. This type of tinnitus includes number #2 on our list of different types of tinnitus.
2. Pulsative Tinnitus - Just like objective tinnitus, pulsative tinnitus can be heard from your doctor's stethoscope. It is caused by the increased blood pressure in your arteries from atherosclerosis, which is the build-up of cholesterol. It beats in tune with your heartbeat or pulse, thus the name puls-ative!
3. Subjective tinnitus - Subjective tinnitus is the one. That's the tinnitus that no one else can hear but you, and it drives you crazy. It is most likely caused by NIHL. Noise-Induced Hearing Loss. NIHL is a big problem in most industrialized nations. The constant noise from various sources. The blaring music from the movies, the nightclub, the sirens, the construction. I could go on and on...
Now that we got the types of tinnitus out of the way, let's get back to why we are here. The natural cures of tinnitus. There are too many to name so we are going to investigate just two of them: Apple Cider Vinegar and Hydrogen Peroxide.
Apple Cider Vinegar - Apple cider vinegar is one of the oldest home remedies on the planet. It's not some old nasty liquid that your granny made you drink. This stuff really does work! Those old folks really knew what they were talking about! In addition to tinnitus, apple cider vinegar is used as a home remedy for almost any kind of ailment that you can think of from allergies to sore throats to the gout!
To use it you have to dilute it with water or honey, whatever tastes better for you. You then drink it, three times a week and whatever ails you is either gone or greatly reduced! Tinnitus included.
Hydrogen Peroxide - We have all known for years about the power of hydrogen peroxide. Like apple cider vinegar, it's one of the oldest natural home remedies out there and can be used on a myriad of different ailments. It's best known in my family as the stuff that "...mom would put on a cut that fizzes up!" With hydrogen peroxide you would do the same. Except you would add soda, H202 and water.
