Ayurveda can help relieve tinnitus. Tinnitus is a condition of experiencing ringing, buzzing, roaring or whistling types of noises in one or both ears. Almost one-fifth of the Australian population suffers from tinnitus at some point in their lives. The noise volume can range from subtle to splitting. It is mainly caused by exposure to extremely loud noises, excess stress or certain medications.

There is no known cure for tinnitus, so conventional treatment mainly involves habituation. Common treatment recommends avoiding loud noises and stress, as well as promoting lifestyle changes that divert attention from the noises. Medication is seldom helpful in alleviating tinnitus symptoms and surgery is rarely justified.

At Ayur Clinic, our Ayurveda specialists in Melbourne take a holistic approach to tinnitus treatment. The Ayurvedic approach prioritises restoring balance within the body. The fundamental basis is to target the root of the problem rather than its symptoms.

Patients suffering from tinnitus have an imbalance of Vata – one of three primary life forces or doshas. Our Ayurveda experts Melbourne recommend diet and lifestyle changes that help return balance to the body.

  1. Reduce intake of dry or raw foods, as well as bitter tastes

To pacify Vata levels in the body, patients should primarily consume warm, cooked foods and reduce intake of dry or raw foods. This can be achieved by adding ghee or oil to cooked meals and drinking warm water. Bitter foods, such as turmeric, eggplant and certain leafy greens, should also be avoided. These foods tend to aggravate Vata.

 

 

  1. Use sesame oil on ears and scalp

Ayurveda Tinnitus Ayur ClinicWhile lying down, apply a few drops of warm sesame oil to each ear daily and leave the oil in the ear for 5-10 minutes. This helps to strengthen nerves and muscles while soothing Vata dosha. Massaging warm sesame oil into the scalp before bedtime can also help calm factors aggravating tinnitus.

 

 

 

  1. Drink fenugreek seed tea

  1. Restrict caffeine, nicotine and alcohol consumption
