Ringing, buzzing, roaring? The tinnitus community has spoken: you’ll be able to get over these upsetting symptoms easily and naturally with these top medically confirmed methods. They take less than 5 minutes and are jam-packed with health benefits both for your ears and more!
Ginger Spice Tea
If you want a natural, easy and fast fix, Ginger Spice Tea is a sure bet!
WHAT TO DO: Make a ginger-spice tea by boiling 1 heaping tablespoon each of dried oregano, cilantro, rosemary, sage, and cinnamon and 3 slices of fresh ginger in 4 cups of water for 15 minutes. Seal the pot to prevent steam from escaping as it boils. Drink 3 cups a day for at least 3 weeks.
WHY IT WORKS: Ginger is a simple yet very effective treatment for tinnitus. The properties contained in ginger help improve brain function and blood circulation while destroying unwanted ear bacteria and curbing migraine headaches.
PRO TIP: when buying ginger, avoid the roots with any soft spots or pungent smell – those are sure signs that it’s been sitting on display for far too long.
Apple Cider Vinegar
This recipe is a classic, but the fantastic health advantages are absolutely incredible!
WHAT TO DO: Mix 2 teaspoons of ACV with 8 to 12 ounces of water, tea or milk. You can add honey to make it tastier. Drink this once daily.
WHY IT’S SO GOOD: Apple cider vinegar is loaded with healthy acids and enzymes which feed the healthy bacteria within our gut. Remember, poor digestion causes “leaky gut syndrome” – which leads to inflammation of the brain and digestive system. By consuming ACV, you’ll help all your body detoxify and considerably boost your brain power. Apple cider vinegar is also an antifungal agent. When taken as a tonic daily, it fights any ear fungus that may be worsening your tinnitus.
PRO TIP: for best results, always choose organic ACV. You can easily recognize organic ACV by its amber cloudy appearance, referred to as the “mother of vinegar”. It is claimed that this mother of vinegar is where all the vitamins, minerals and enzymes are found.
If you didn’t try a Gingko Biloba drink before, now it’s definitely the time!
WHAT TO DO: This ancient plant has been used as a medicinal food for thousands of years in various cultures. All you must do is take 120 to 240 mg per day in two or three divided doses.
WHY IT WORKS: Ginkgo improves blood circulation, which contributes to the better functioning of the brain, eyes, ears, and legs. It may slow down Alzheimer’s disease by interfering with changes in the brain that interfere with thinking. The seeds also contain antibacterial and antifungal properties that help eliminate underlying infection that may be aggravating the condition
PRO TIP: Ginkgo biloba can interact with certain medicines. It’s always a good idea to consult your doctor before taking gingko.
