Often we are not even aware of the dangers in today’s noisy world and we don’t even know what causes ringing ears? Did you know that loud music playing on your Ipod can be causing damage to the inner ear if the volume is too loud, even if you frequently attend nightclubs or noisy pubs the constant noise could be causing your tinnitus. Exposure to noise is responsible for up to 85% of ringing in the ears cases that we have dealt with since 1999.

It is a vicious cycle because tinnitus causes stress and anxiety and is also worsened by stress and anxiety. Worrying over the tinnitus can cause it to become worse. Lack of sleep due to ringing in the ears leads to fatigue which makes the ringing worse. These are just some of the mental and emotional side effects of tinnitus and ringing in the ears.

To sum it up, any condition that involves hearing problems is likely to exhibit a symptom of ringing in the ears. Any difficulty in hearing will lead to ringing in the ears because of the absence of sound waves being recognized by the brain. This momentary obliteration of sound waves can cause an erratic action on the part of the brain since it has gotten used to interpreting the sound it receives on a regular basis.

Simple steps to stop your ears ringing:

First learn all you can about this terrible ailment and then get natural tinnitus treatment remedies to eliminate your symptoms.

Without the regular sound waves that it has to interpret, the brain will try so hard and in the process it short circuits itself, which is then the abnormal sound or so called ringing in the ears that a person with tinnitus can hear. This explains why the ringing noise in the ears is something that can be heard only by the person having it because it is something that happens internally. There are no external factors which causes it hence a person having tinnitus must not expect that other people can hear the noise they are hearing.

When combined with the frustration and depression that comes with not being able to live how you want, tinnitus takes a huge emotional toll on even the strongest person.

Many are so haunted by the sounds of ringing ears that it affects every aspect of their daily lives leading them to seclusion, paranoia, insomnia, depression and for many, even suicidal thoughts or attempts.

  1. When it comes to treating tinnitus there is no “one cure fixes all”. There are many different and varying options and you would be best to discuss these with your audiologist. However, there are a number of simple things you can try on your own to assist with managing tinnitus. Try to cut back on the amount of caffeine and alcohol in your diet (yes that means you may need to forgo that extra cup of coffee or glass of red); take time to “wind down” and reduce any anxiety or stress in your life; and avoid loud noise (e.g. use ear muffs when mowing the lawn).
