Homeopathic treatment for tinnitus, a condition of the ear characterized by continuous or intermittent noises unrelated to outside stimulus, usually reduces the frustration and discomfort that comes with it. Tinnitus can occur alone or as a symptom of other ear – or nerve-related diseases or injuries. Apart from roaring, ringing, or buzzing sounds, partial hearing loss may also be experienced.
Calcarea carbonica is usually indicated when tinnitus is experienced either alone or along with vertigo. Pulsing and cracking sensations in affected ears occurring with hearing problems are also some of the symptoms that this is prescribed for. People who respond well to this cure are often easily fatigued, chilly, feel anxious and overwhelmed when unwell, and crave sweets.
Carbo vegetabilis, on the other hand, is useful when tinnitus occurs accompanying flu or other diseases involving nausea and vertigo. Symptoms of these diseases are usually worse during the evening. The person affected feels faint and cold and craves fresh air and moving wind. This homeopathic remedy is also prescribed for slow recovery and prolonged illness.
Cinchona officinalis is another remedy that is useful in cases where the sufferer of tinnitus feels weak, touchy, and sensitive to noise. Often, this is indicated after the loss of blood or other fluids, such as through diarrhea, vomiting, surgery, or heavy sweating.
Chininum sulphuricum is usually useful when the roaring, ringing, and buzzing sounds accompanying tinnitus are loud enough that they seriously impair hearing. Vertigo and chills that make the tinnitus worse are common symptoms indicating need for this treatment.
Cimicifuga is an effective tinnitus remedy for people who are sensitive to noise and also experience frequent headaches, menstrual problems, and muscle pain and tension in the back or neck.
Coffea cruda is usually prescribed to nervous, excitable people whose tinnitus is accompanied by a feeling of buzzing near the back or rear portion of the head. Insomnia due to mental overstimulation is common among persons likely to respond well to this remedy.
Graphites will be beneficial to people whose tinnitus is associated with a degree of deafness. Clicking and hissing sounds are also indicators of tinnitus that may be receptive to this treatment.
Kali carbonicum is prescribed when tinnitus occurs with itching and cracking noises. Vertigo resulting from sudden head movements or turning is also another indicator. People who would benefit most from this are often conservative and feel anxiety in their stomachs.
Lycopodium is suggested when roaring, humming, and hearing impairment occur with tinnitus, or when discharges and ear infections occur.
These are just some of the options in remedying tinnitus. During homeopathic treatment for tinnitus, one must pay careful attention to the body’s response, adjusting dosage or changing remedy as necessary.
