As Easy As 1-2-3-4-5-6-7…
Curing tinnitus… can it be done? If so, are the odds so stacked against it that it’s fundamentally foolish to get your hopes up about it? These are important questions to ask if you’re suffering from this sometimes brutal condition. Learn to cope, or actually eliminate the problem? Very important questions, indeed…
Think curing tinnitus is possible? You’re right! Think curing tinnitus is easy? You’re considerably less right. However, as with most things in life, the power lies in the preparation. Blindly trying to cure your tinnitus symptoms will get you nowhere fast. Relying on “miracle potions” to cure your tinnitus symptoms could land you in the poorhouse (and/or the insane asylum). Let’s find you a better way. Read on…
Curing Tinnitus Made Simple – Well, Sort Of
When setting out to rid yourself of the dreadful ringing in your ears once and for all, it is of monumental importance that you do one thing. Yep, just one basic little thing. Ready? You must LEARN! Educating yourself about your ears, tinnitus itself, the various causes of tinnitus, and specific treatments which have been proven effective against each of these causes will pay dividends, without question.
The more you understand what you’re truly up against, the better equipped you’ll be to eliminate it from your life quickly, effectively, and painlessly. And you had better believe that figuring this stuff out on your own can take an eternity, prolonging your agony to no end. For this reason, you should definitely be willing to become somewhat of a “tinnitus student.”
There are many great books out there that can help you understand what the heck is going on in your head. Important things to understand are the many potential causes, specific treatments that directly address each unique cause, and coping mechanisms to enable you to patiently seek out your cure without being driven crazy in the process.
Curing Tinnitus – Medical Vs. Natural Solutions
There are two main routes you can take to cure yourself of tinnitus, and the road you choose may well depend upon the cause of your tinnitus. On the other hand, it may just be a matter of preference. In some cases, you might even choose to implement treatment options from both. Of course, the “roads” in question here are Western medical treatment and more natural, holistic approaches.
Each of these has been proven effective in curing tinnitus symptoms. Here are a few different options contained within them…
Medical Treatment Options:
* Anti-anxiety drugs
* Blood pressure medication (if hypertension is to blame for your symptoms)
* Certain anti-seizure medications
* Neuronomic devices
* Earwax removal
* Tinnitus maskers and hearing aids
Natural Treatment Options:
* Body detoxification
* Vitamin and mineral therapy
* Tinnitus Retraining Therapy (TRT)
* Certain herbs
* Various relaxation techniques
* Drug and alcohol elimination or reduction
* Massage, acupuncture, acupressure
* Alkaline diet
Again, this list is by no means an exhaustive one. It is simply intended to show you what’s possible and give you an idea that curing tinnitus is hardly a one-shot type of process. Knowing what is causing your tinnitus is paramount to narrowing down your list of options to those which are most relevant to your particular situation.
When trying to get your tinnitus symptoms under control, implement the following 3 step process:
1. Pick up as many reputable books on tinnitus as you can handle reading. Again, learning is the name of the game here. Arm yourself with knowledge so that you’re not stuck chasing your tail for years on end.
2. Start masking your tinnitus immediately. You can purchase tinnitus maskers online, download white noise onto your computer, purchase a CD, or in a pinch, turn up your house fan and some good music. This will provide you with some temporary relief while learning about tinnitus and discovering an effective treatment plan for your specific case.
3. GET DIAGNOSED! A proper diagnosis can mean the difference between curing tinnitus in 12 years… or 12 weeks! The importance of receiving an accurate diagnosis cannot be stressed enough.
