How To Minimise Symptoms Of Tinnitus Alongside Specialist Care
Tinnitus is an obscure, subjective sound that persists inside a patient’s head and can present itself as a buzzing, ringing, humming, hissing, or even shrieking. Although it poses no life-threatening impacts on one’s health, it can be distressing and even scary for those experiencing it. As tinnitus specialists, we find that this is most common with patients over the age of 55 or those experiencing various degrees of hearing loss. Because tinnitus can be so distressing and disruptive to one’s normal routine, we recommend trying these methods to help with tinnitus care, thus allowing you to live a full life.

One of the main contributors to worsening this condition is stress. Therefore, it is of utmost importance that the patient is willing to alleviate activity that piles on the stress and put aside plenty of time to partake in activities that help manage stress. Some examples of this are Yoga, Meditation, or light exercise. Everyone has their own preferences for relaxation, so it’s best to explore which one works best for you. One however that cannot be denied is sleep. Plenty of good sleep (about 8 hours) should be top of the list along with these practices.
Nutrition Is Key
Adopting a nutritious diet is beneficial for many reasons. Still, it is hard to know if certain foods and drinks directly improve or worsen the tinnitus symptoms. However, we do recommend exploring it. This can be done by cutting certain things out of your diet and seeing if there’s any effect on the severity of the sound heard. If not, then the patient can reintroduce that food type and try another food type. For a detailed explanation of what foods can help watch here.
