Do you ever hear a buzzing in your ear?
According to a study published in 2014, that buzzing you hear, also known as tinnitus, is one of the most common biological problems. The sounds can include, tapping, clicking, and other noises. They can switch ears, and their intensity and volume can change.
Normally this symptom doesn't indicate anything worse, but the sounds can be annoying and cause mood swings and depression. It's a common problem in older people and people who have been exposed to loud noises, like people who work in clubs or construction work. It could also affect people who normally turn the volume up too loud while listening to music using headphones.
Other common causes are:
– Excessive ear wax;
– Ear infections;
– Eardrum injuries;
– Medication such as antibiotics and aspirin;
– Jaw or dental problems;
– Heart problems;
– Depression and stress.
There are several ways to treat this buzzing, but the best thing to do is find out what is causing the buzzing and prevent it from happening again.
In today's video we're going to explore some of the natural remedies that can help reduce this problem:
Several studies have confirmed that acupuncture really helps with the buzzing. If your acupuncturist studies Chinese medicine, he'll know how to treat the problem. This treatment normally lasts about 10 sessions.
Ginkgo Biloba is a medicinal plant that can improve your blood circulation, especially to your head. If the buzzing is happening due to bad circulation, this plant can help a lot.
Ear candling is a old natural medicine technique. You burn a cone made of gauze, paraffin and bee's wax, and it helps fight infections and swelling.
The heat generated from the cone, together with the easy pressure generated from the burning, naturally clears out your ears and respiratory tracts.
Several studies show that zinc reduces the buzzing sounds. You can eat foods with high levels of zinc such as oysters, pumpkin seeds, beans, almonds, sesame, and flax seed.
Most people who hear this buzzing are lacking vitamin B12. If that’s your case, eating foods rich in vitamin B12 is a great choice. Normally the foods with the highest levels of B12 are of animal origin, but if you're a vegetarian, you can look for supplements.
