Tinnitus Remedies: Supplements You Need To Help Improve Tinnitus
Dr John-Charles Hodge, MBBS, MA, MRCS, FRACS, Ear Nose and Throat (ENT) medical specialist with over 20 years of industry experience in the UK and Australia shares ongoing tips on how to cope with tinnitus.
Are There Additional Supplements That Can Help Your Tinnitus?
Previously, Dr Hodge has discussed magnesium, zinc and Vitamin B12 but are there others? If you look at the data, there is no hard evidence for or against any of these other supplements.
However, patients have spoken about success with turmeric, a superfood antioxidant, garlic, melatonin and ginkgo. Melatonin most likely gives patients a greater chance of falling asleep and/or experiencing better quality sleep. This can reduce stress and strengthen the immune system. From what Dr Hodge has seen regarding ginkgo, for every study that supports the theory that ginkgo works, there is another study that supports the opposite. Our stance is if it helps, it helps.
Garlic and curcumin (a chemical inside Turmeric) have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Garlic is also known to fight bacteria and viruses. Ginkgo is used as an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, circulation stimulant and anti-anxiety treatment.
Each patient reports different experiences of these foods.
What Is The Best Advice Regarding Supplements?
Dr Hodge recommends approaching it holistically. What he means by this is that patients should also eat healthy foods, do exercise and try to get the best sleep possible. A healthy diet will eliminate any unknown complications while regular exercise will increase your circulation, which delivers oxygen and nutrients more regularly to the whole body. This means that each region of the body is refreshed sooner. Getting the best possible sleep means that you will not be as stressed and, therefore, your body will produce less cortisol. Cortisol is linked to many health complications. Lack of sleep diminishes your quality of life. Regular exercise will feed into better sleep and not eating late or eating junk food will mean your body will not struggle to regulate itself. Do you see the connection? When your body is in optimum health, it has the incredible ability to heal itself.
The best possible advice regarding supplements as tinnitus remedies is to seek professional medical, audiological advice as soon as you can.
Dr Hodge is passionate about seeking quality of life improvements for sufferers of tinnitus. In addition to his groundbreaking treatment, he is continually looking for complementary and supplementary methods that sufferers can easily access. Tinnitus is a frustrating affliction and can impact each sufferer differently.
