There are many homeopathic tinnitus treatments, and as with all homeopathic treatments, they are tailored specifically to an individual’s needs. Finding the best treatment is therefore dependent on what other symptoms the patient is presenting. Some homeopathic tinnitus treatments include Chininum Sulphuricum, Coffea Cruda, Lycopodium and Salicylicum Acidum. These treatments are suitable for different situations, such as tinnitus with chills, insomnia or ear infections.
Homeopathic medicine works on the principle that an active ingredient diluted exponentially can be useful for healing both physical and mental ailments. The homeopathic tinnitus treatments have a potency of 6C. This means that the active ingredient has been diluted one part ingredient to 99 parts water, and that this dilution process has happened six times.
Chininum Sulphuricum is a homeopathic tinnitus remedy that is suitable for people who experience buzzing, ringing or roaring sounds that interfere with their hearing. This treatment is particularly suitable for people who also suffer from vertigo or chills with their tinnitus. Coffea Cruda is another tinnitus treatment that is meant for excitable, nervous people who have a buzzing feeling in the back of the head and who also may experience insomnia. The insomnia is accompanied by a feeling that the brain won’t shut off.
Lyopodium is a homeopathic tinnitus treatment prescribed to people who experience the characteristic hearing trouble associated with a humming or roaring in the ears, as well as sounds echoing in the ears. The drug is suited for people who often suffer from ear infections that present with discharge, digestion problems and urinary tract issues. Salicylicum Acidum is a homeopathic tinnitus treatment that is best for people who experience tinnitus along with deafness and vertigo. The remedy can also help if the tinnitus has been caused by taking too much aspirin, or if it is accompanied by flu or Meniere’s disease.
Other homeopathic tinnitus treatments include Carbo Vegetabilis, which is specifically used for tinnitus where the symptoms are worse at night and the patient craves fresh air, and Kali Carbonicum, which is more appropriate for people who have a firm ethical standpoint and whose tinnitus is accompanied by itchiness. There is no proof that homeopathic medicines actively fight the conditions they purport to, and as such, if the tinnitus persists after being treated by a homeopathic remedy, patients are advised to visit a medical doctor. The reason homeopathy is considered alternative medicine is because it hasn’t been empirically proven to have any effect greater than that of a similarly administered placebo. This is a hotly debated topic, however, and many patients and practitioners believe homeopathy to have a positive effect.
