What is the cure for Tinnitus?
Q : I am hearing a ringing noise in my mind. I have been told it might be tinnitus, could this be a side effect of meditation or chanting?
Answer There are no side effects of chanting. I don’t know what is the condition of your body but I don’t know who said to you that it is ‘tinnitus’. It might be ‘tinnitus’, if so, then you need to treat it.
As per ‘ayurveda’, ‘tinnitus’ can be caused because of aggravated ‘vata’ in your body - the humor wind has been aggravated. This means that you have a lot of imbalance of ‘vata’ - the wind humor in your body.
So you need to see a good ‘ayurveda’ physician who can examine you and suggest you some guidelines in making some changes in your diet and also there might be some need to take some medication and ‘ayurveda’ medications are usually made up of herbs. These herbs should be taken under observation, guidance and after consultation with a physician. So please see someone.
Although I can give you two suggestions, one take steam for a few days. Put two to three drops of tea tree oil or eucalyptus oil in the steamer and take steam twice a day. Sleep well, eat fresh, nutritious, natural organic food; take good sleep and do yoga asana’s in the morning. It might help and this noise that you are hearing might go.
