5 Great Tinnitus Herbs

Author: Anthony Handley

When you have buzzing or roaring sound in your ears that is either intermittent or continuous, you just might have tinnitus. Though there has no definite cure for it, there are things that you could do to decrease the level of the symptoms. There are also tinnitus herbs that you could use to help you treat the symptoms of tinnitus. The better known tinnitus herbs are as follows:

- Ginkgo (Ginkgo biloba). This herb is used for a variety of conditions, including tinnitus. However, ginkgo biloba does not work for everyone who has tinnitus; but it is definitely worth the try. The dosage usually recommended by most physicians for the treatment of tinnitus, is 40 milligrams of gingko biloba extract, to be taken three times a day.

- Sesame (Sesamum indicum). Probably one of the most popular tinnitus herbs that is highly recommend by the Chinese herbalists. The seeds of this herb are used to treat tinnitus, blurred vision and dizziness. You could even try adding it into your food.

- Black cohosh (Cimicifuga racemosa). There had been an experiment made by an individual who has been affected with tinnitus to use the black cohosh tincture for a few weeks for the possible treatment of tinnitus and voila! According to him, his tinnitus almost disappeared. It is also said that black cohosh and ginkgo are a good combination to use.

- Goldenseal (Hydrastis canadensis). Just like any tinnitus herbs out there, the goldenseal just might be of help in the treatment of tinnitus. Again, it won't hurt to try.

- Lesser periwinkle (Vinca minor). It has been reported that the lesser periwinkle actually contains vincamine, a chemical compound that reportedly aids in the treatment of tinnitus and gives off positive results. The suggested dosage would be 20 milligrams of dried herb three times a day, or depending on your physician's advice.

If there are tinnitus herbs that are helpful there are also some who may aggravate the problem. If you have tinnitus, be sure that you avoid aspirin, or aspirin-like herbs such as the willow bark, meadowsweet and wintergreen. This is because high amounts of aspirin can cause ringing in the ears. Other tinnitus herbs that you should not use or avoid are cinchona, black haw and uva ursi.

Tinnitus herbs are just alternatives to other medicinal treatments used for tinnitus. If you are not sure of the proper dosage and usage of these herbs, consult a health professional. And do not self-medicate if you do not know exactly how to use them.

    Could this be a CSF leak paired with sinus difficulties?
    Approx. 8 years ago I had sinus surgery and my balance was significantly effected. One month ago I leaned forward and when I stood a clear fluid began gushing from the right nostril. It had a yellow tint to it when on a tissue. It has happened several times since then. I have ‘migraine’ headaches, constant sinus pressure, balance difficulties even when sitting, intermittent blurred vision, and arm tingling. Some symptoms have been long term but the leakage of fluid has developed recently. My doctor feels there could be a CSF leak. Any suggestions or ideas?

    double vision in left eye?
    For some time now, I have been experiencing intermittent double vision in my left eye. While it may be important to point out that I do have high blood pressure, I am not sure how related this is, simply because it doesn’t seem to coincide with any elevated BP readings. If I have an elevated reading, my vision is often fine. And when my vision is doubled, it doesn’t mean I am showing high on my BP readings. It varies from day to day, but whatever vision I wake up to in the morning, is how it is throughout the entirety of the day, and I always know that I will not notice a change (if any) until I wake up the following morning.. The easiest way to describe it is that I can go 3 to 4 days with perfectly fine vision and then 1 to 2 days with blurred/doubled vision. Does anyone else experience this?
    In response to one answer: my vision is perfectly clear when I cover my left eye. One suggestion made to me was to try the pinhole test. Assuming that looking through a piece of paper is an adequate method of doing this, then I noticed that my vision is NOT doubled.
    (and also, no. The double image does NOT go away when covering my right eye.

      probably need an eye exam.

      however it should be noted that far & away the most common cause of monocular (one eye) “double vision” is definitely uncorrected astigmatism. i’m not saying thats what you have, but it is the most likely probability, even if you only notice it in the morning.

      Good luck

      the movie is called Lorenzo’s oil

      Find a new doctor, and go there now. Don’t hang around if your in a bad way, you can probably get something to clear it up, or at least help in some way instead of suffering.
