A note about The Cause of Tinnitus - Possible Triggers
In natural health and healing, we believe in holistic health and healing, as we realize that different parts of the human body are highly interlinked, often beyond Man's understanding. We also believe that the body has the ability to heal itself of any disease, even supposedly incurable diseases.
In order to do so, the body needs the support of some basic dietary and lifestyle good health habits, such as a full body detox and a proper understanding and application of nutrition. No matter how remote or unrelated a health condition may seem, these fundamental health steps will greatly magnify the effects and benefits of any of our health-promoting efforts, including the use of specific natural health remedies.
In fact, there are many conditions that can cause symptoms like tinnitus, or ringing in the ear, that should be further looked into.
For instance, tinnitus can be caused by hearing loss due to age or constant loud noises. It can also be caused by ear wax buildup against the ear drum or a foreign object that is lodged within the ear. You shouldnt just assume that your cause of tinnitus is hearing loss.
Another possible cause of tinnitus is certain types of medications. This is one of the more easily treated causes of tinnitus, as you can often talk to your health care professional to have your medications changed.
You might be surprised to learn that over 200 kinds of medications can cause tinnitus. If you have this condition, you should check to see if any of the medications you are taking could be the reason. Aspirin and other NSAIDS, as well as other prescription and non prescription medications, can cause tinnitus.
You may also find that you have an ear infection or fluid in your ear that causes your tinnitus. These can often be treated very easily once diagnosed. Since prolonged ear infections can often cause hearing damage, if you think you have an ear infection or something else related to them, you should have them treated.
Some of the time, tinnitus can be caused by problems such as high blood pressure (hypertension) and arteriosclerosis, or buildup in the arteries. Sometimes, when the sound of the heart is heard in the ears, it can be a sign of a heart murmur. Anemia can also be a cause of tinnitus.
There are even more possible causes of tinnitus, including allergies and sinus problems. Headaches, such as migraines, have been found to cause tinnitus as well. In some, much rarer cases, tinnitus has been a symptom of an aneurism or tumor. Occasionally, tinnitus accompanies conditions such as epilepsy.
Lots of people suffer from tinnitus and not all of the cases have to do with hearing loss, although it is thought that 90% of the tinnitus cases also suffer from some kind of hearing loss.
Its important for you to know that there is treatment for your tinnitus, and that you dont have to just accept the frustrating noises that are occurring in your head. Whether you failed to protect your ears from loud noises and now suffer from hearing loss, or you are suffering from an underlying cause of tinnitus, there are ways to treat it.
Talk to your health care professional about identifying the cause of tinnitus and different methods of treating your condition. The good news is that your tinnitus may be temporary and could go away on its own, depending on its cause(s).
