Ringing in the Ears Can Drive You Crazy: Some Tips That Helped Me

Tinnitus or ringing in the ears has an interesting side effect:  It can make you crazy.  Maybe you don’t need rubber walls and a strait jacket but I’ve come close.

The most sane person on the planet cannot go without sleep for long or that person will start exhibiting strange quirks and downright nuttiness.  Can you sleep with your ears ringing?  I can’t.  Well I can’t sleep very well anyhow.

I’ve gotten letters from readers of this site and I know that many of you have been through the same round of cure seeking behavior as I have.  Doctors and drugs, masking agents, don’t drink caffeine and don’t forget to exercise.  It’s not easy to break out into jumping jacks when you haven’t slept in two days.

I Can Give You an Idea of What’s Working for Me and Here Are a Few Tips:

•    Anything that you do that cleanses your body will help.  Getting rid of toxins is a good health practice but especially for us tinnitus people.  Drink a ton of water.  Carry a bottle around with you and yep, you’ll be in the bathroom a little more than usual, but it’s a good thing.

•    Exercise!  Did I say that before?  Yeah you were afraid I was going to say it again.  The fact is it will help by increasing the flow of blood to the brain.  A long walk can do wonders and it will help you sleep.

•    It may sound New Agey to many of you but changing the way I looked at ringing in the ears helped.  I don’t mean I welcomed it but I started working on convincing myself through visualization that my ears ringing was getting better.  I’d convinced myself after talking to doctors and others that shared the problem that there “Was no cure”.  It’s not true!

The answer to my ringing in the ears came with some of the tips above combined with a holistic program.  This program was developed by a former sufferer and it’s working for me and others that have contacted me.  I feel strongly that this program can help your problem of ears ringing also.  Read details here.

Ringing Ears and a Cure: Is There an Answer?

I struggled with ringing ears for too many years.  Did you know that it’s estimated that around 14% of the population in the U.S has a problem with ear ringing?

So that means we’re not alone.  Not by a long shot.  Sharing the problem with so many people sure doesn’t make it feel any better though.

Finding Out I Wasn't Alone

When I started a support group in the sparsely populated mountain area of Northern California where I live, I was amazed at how many people contacted me to talk about their problem.  Most of these people have become friends and we shared much of what was working to help us.

I shared my background of playing in loud bands and going to concerts that were ear splitting loud.  It was so cool.  Nottt!  If I’d only have known.

I could match the stories of unrelieved noises, not sleeping for days, depression and almost losing hope.  Thankfully it was “almost” and not completely giving up.

My Doctor Didn't Know Much

I read everything I could about the problem and found after talking to my doctor that I actually knew much more than he did.  This is pretty typical with the medical establishment and the big T.

My recovery started when I began having a slightly different attitude about the affliction.  I got into the habit of changing my focus as much as I possibly could.  When all I could think about was the roar in my head, I went into denial and thought about the life I really wanted to lead.

It’s strange to talk about denial in a good way but it opened the door to thinking in a more positive, hopeful way.  When the ringing ears really kicked in I sat down and started writing music and playing my guitar(softly).    What ear ringing?  That was my mantra.

I'm Sleeping, Wow!

It just seemed that I started sleeping better and when I didn’t sleep I meditated instead of fantasizing about putting my head through the wall.  Much more positive thought you have to admit.

It just seemed the good things started snowballing for me and then I began the Tinnitus Remedy program and that seemed to be what synthesized everything for me.  I started doing many of the things I was already doing but with a plan.

I’m not saying I don’t have a rough day now and then but they are a surprise now rather than a daily occurrence.  I encourage you to click here if you have ringing ears and would like more information as to what’s helping me.

Ringing of Ears or Tinnitus- My Story

Have you ever lay down to go to sleep and the neighbor decided to mow his lawn, or maybe fire up a chain saw?  It's not a good thing!  Welcome to the world of Tinnitus or ringing of ears.

The Cause of My Ringing of Ears

I've always loved music and learned to play guitar and bass as a young girl.  I loved rock and roll and especially blues and played in bands starting at a very young age.  Loud was cool and I had no thought for the consequences which is pretty typical for young people.

As the years went by I noticed that often I would hear ringing after finishing a gig but by the next morning it was better and then gone.  Then it didn't go away anymore.  My tinnitus consists of 2 sounds: ringing and a sound I can only describe as what you hear if you put a seashell to your ear.   However the nice sound of waves and wind is much louder than is acceptable.

The Search for Help

I went to the doctor and was prescribed drugs.  These worked for a while but never completely gave me relief.  I knew they weren't the answer and then tried various masking devices.  Some of these also helped but again weren't a cure.

Was there a cure?  I didn't hear anything very positive and slowly became depressed and pretty hopeless.  Nights are the worst time for ringing of the ears because the tinnitus condition is at its worst.  It's really no louder but the quiet of night and the attempt at sleep makes it seem worse and it's more invasive.

I read everything I could about tinnitus and a cure for tinnitus.  Doctors say there is no cure for ringing of ears but I'm here to tell you different.  There IS hope!  I found a plan that works for me and I have a few tips to share with you.

Four Tips

1.  Start working out and taking some long walks.  These activities increase the blood flow to your brain and throughout your entire body.  An increase in blood flow has a positive flow on your entire system and can really help your tinnitus.

2.  Drink plenty of water.  Water cleanses your body and will have a positive impact on any health conditions including noise or ringing of ears.

3.  The only way I could come out of the depression I was experiencing was a total spiritual healing.  I had to see my reality in a completely different way and that meant a change in beliefs.  I had heard of others that had reached a cure for tinnitus and so I began to believe in my heart and soul that I would do it also.  I threw out my old self talk that, "This ringing of the ears can't be cured".

4.  I set a goal that I would do something positive with my life.  I wanted to write and play music again.  I knew that I couldn't play in a band but I could do a solo acoustic act.  I'm still not to the point of making a living from my music but it helped to concentrate on a positive goal instead of ringing of ears.

These tips have nothing to do with drugs, masking or doctors.  However I know that they will help with the level of your tinnitus.  I know because these changes and especially the change of focus helped me and quite quickly.

Is There a Cure for Tinnitus?

Is there a cure for Tinnitus?  I'm not cured yet but I'm so improved that I'm living a better life than I ever have.  I'm healthier, in much better shape and happier than I was before the onset of this condition.

I am using a program that combines many holistic approaches. It seems that the proper combination of many areas such as diet, exercise, meditation and other parts of an overall plan is what really makes this plan effective. I know this program can help you and possibly assist you in total recovery from your tinnitus. Click here for more information on a program I consider a miracle.
