Tinnitus (Ringing in the Ears)

If the bells are ringing.. .and ringing.. .and ringing-you may have tinnitus.

Tinnitus , from the Latin word "tinnire," meaning to ring or tinkle like a bell, is a hearing ailment that affects over 35 million Americans. Most often, it affects people over the age of 40, but it is now being seen more frequently in young people who are exposed to loud, amplified music.

NOTE: Although most tinnitus sufferers hear bells, others may hear clicking, hissing, roaring or whistling.

The exact cause of tinnitus in unknown, but may be brought on by noise-induced hearing loss, wax build-up, ear infection, jaw misalignment and even cardiovascular disease.

Ringing in the ears may also be the result of a mild overdose of salicylate, which is found in aspirin and other drugs. If this is what's causing the ringing, it should stop when the drug is discontinued.

  • If you still hear ringing (and there are no bells nearby)... try onion juice.

Dose: Put 2 drops of onion juice in your ears, three times a week, to stop the ringing.

  • Believe it or not, a heating pad on your feet and one on your hands may ease the ringing in your ears. It all has to do with blood being redistributed, improving circulation and lessening pressure in congested areas.

WARNING: If ringing persists, it might be a sign of a more serious illness, in which case you should seek medical attention.

  • We heard about a woman who had constant ringing in her ears for years. None of the specialists could help her. As a last resort, she started using castor oil. After a month, the ringing subsided considerably. Within three months, it was completely gone.

Try 3 or 4 drops a day in each ear. To get the full benefit from the castor oil, plug the ear with cotton once you've put in the drops, and keep it there overnight.

Mix It Up

  • In a blender, combine six large, peeled garlic cloves and 1 cup of almond oil or extra virgin, cold-pressed olive oil. Blend until the garlic is finely minced. Then clean a glass jar by pouring just-boiled water into it.

Once the jar is dry; pour the garlic and oil mixture into the jar, put the cover on and refrigerate it for seven days. Then strain the liquid from the jar into a clean eyedropper bottle.

At bedtime, take the chill out of a small amount of the liquid, then put 3 drops in each ear and plug the ears with cotton balls. Remove the cotton in the morning. Chances are, if the ringing is going to stop at all, it will do so within two weeks.

Always keep this preparation refrigerated, and do not keep it longer than a month.
