Are you tired of listening to that ringing in your ears day in and day out? If you have been to numerous doctors and specialists only to be told that nothing can be done, perhaps it's time to find your own solution.

There are many natural tinnitus treatments that can help tinnitus sufferers. A little bit of research will show you that others have overcome their tinnitus and there is a good chance that you can too. You'll feel great relief when your tinnitus subsides and you can enjoy a peaceful nights sleep again.

During the last 20 years or so, many researchers have applied themselves to discovering tinnitus solutions. One of the first discoveries was 'masking', where an external noise like a fountain was used to drown out the tinnitus. This was found to provide temporary relief. While drug therapy has not provided any real answers to tinnitus, this external sound stimulation showed promise.

Since then we have learned a lot more about tinnitus and the brain, enabling much more effective solutions to be found. Tinnitus begins when the ear is damaged by an injury, infection or too much noise exposure. One theory is that when damage prevents us from hearing sounds correctly, our brain produces a substitute sound, which is tinnitus.

The way the brain creates the sound is through the firing of neurons. Any sound, or any sense we perceive, begins with the sense organ (eyes, ears etc) and ends with neurons firing in the brain. With tinnitus, the neurons are firing on their own, even though no sound has been received by the ear. So to stop the tinnitus we have to stop the neurons spontaneously firing.

There are ways of helping the auditory parts of the brain to calm down, which can help stop this unwanted neuronal firing. Here are a few ideas you can try.

• Stay away from noisy environments, if you find they trigger your tinnitus

• If you have to go to noisy places wear good-quality earplugs or earmuffs

• Try reducing your intake of caffeine or alcohol

• Find out if any medicine you are taking may trigger tinnitus

• Keep your ears and neck warm to avoid getting winter colds

• Practice deep breathing while listening to calming music

• Increase your intake of antioxidants

• Drink 8 to 10 glasses of filtered water every day to help detox your system

• Use Sound Therapy to help you build healthier auditory pathways in your brain

When you take on board some of these self-healing techniques, you will feel empowered to heal yourself instead of feeling powerless over your tinnitus.
