Tinnitus When there is ringing in the ears
“I hear a constant ringing.” “There is a buzzing in my head – sometimes louder, then quieter.” “I think I am going crazy with this ringing noise.”
This or a similar experience is what tinnitus patients report with regard to the disturbing ear noise.
Those affected notice sounds that don’t come from an outer source. Tinnitus can be perceived in one or both ears as an inner humming or whistling sound, hissing, swooshing, clicking or knocking. The noise can remain the same with regard to its intensity or it can pulse rhythmically.
The cause of the tinnitus condition is a disturbance of the hearing function. At the same time, the neural activity in various brain areas is changed. When ear noises appear, immediate treatment of the condition is recommended, since the longer tinnitus remains, the higher the probability of a permanent impairment.
What is the Vedic medicine point of view on tinnitus?
Tinnitus aus from an Ayurvedic point of view
According to the Maharishi Ayurveda approach, tinnitus starts with the loss of natural balance.
Metabolic residues develop continuously due to improper lifestyle. In the case of tinnitus, toxins (in Ayurveda called “Ama”) accumulate in the ears and affect the hearing ability. Each tinnitus patient knows that an unstable nervous system can serve as a trigger for the familiar symptoms.
In Ayurveda every patient is different and so each person’s tinnitus complaint varies. The Ayurvedic approach at our Centre is holistic.
What can Ayurveda do for you?
In Vedic medicine, tinnitus is addressed by combining various treatments into a multi-faceted approach adapted to your individual situation, as determined in a comprehensive diagnosis by one of our physicians.
An integrated approach
Increasingly, patients are finding that conventional therapies alone are not enough.
They recognize that healing must take place on all levels. In the case of tinnitus, for example, an emphasis on elimination of toxins especially in the area of the head as well as balancing of the nervous system can be recommended. It is important to bring all natural regulatory principles back into harmony. Nutritional recommendations and helpful exercises, as well as specific herbal mixtures tailored according to your needs, support a health-conscious lifestyle. In this way, your natural self-healing abilities can lessen the disturbing ear noises effectively.
