    Tinnitus is noise or ringing in the ears. Nearly 36 million Americans suffer from tinnitus or head noises. It may be an intermittent sound or an annoying continuous sound in one or both ears.

    (NaturalNews) Bugged by ringing in your ears? After doctors have ruled out possible serious causes, for example the presence of a tumor, there is really very little else that they can do for you. Whether the sound in your ear is ringing, whistling, clicking or hissing; loud or soft; intermittent or incessant; mildly annoying or downright infuriating, one of the following natural remedies could be the answer you seek.

    Tinnitus

    Sesame seeds
    Some Chinese herbalists recommend the use of sesame seeds for treating tinnitus. You could add these seeds to the foods you consume or use tahini, the bread spread made from sesame seeds.

    Ginkgo biloba
    Ginkgo biloba has been shown in many studies to be helpful for many health ailments related to aging, including memory loss, poor circulation and tinnitus.

    As ginkgo improves blood circulation, it could help with cases of ringing in the ears which are associated with lack of circulation to the inner ear. While it may not work for every single case of the condition, James Duke, PhD, wrote that it would be the first herb he would try.

    Goldenseal
    In his book The Herbal Handbook, David Hoffmann, a British herbalist, wrote that goldenseal could be helpful for some cases of tinnitus.

    B vitamins
    Tinnitus could be linked to a deficiency in B vitamins, and some people have found relief from the ringing by taking a B complex supplement.

    Dr. Michael Seidman, an ear, nose and throat specialist, recommended higher supplementation levels of three specific B vitamins — thiamin, niacin and vitamin B12. According to him, thiamin supplements could help relieve tinnitus by “stabilizing the nervous system, especially the nerves of the inner ear.” He added that niacin could help by boosting circulation to the inner ear.
