Tinnitus Cures and Acupuncture: A Tinnitus Treatment That Works?

I think it’s safe to say that most of us with ringing ears are always on the lookout for tinnitus cures.  We’ll look at and probably try anything that we hear has been effective in curing tinnitus for someone.

Alternative tinnitus treatments are popular and acupuncture combined with herbs has resulted in improvement for many.  Basically the belief is that there may be an imbalance in our system that is resulting in disease, pain or possibly tinnitus.

With acupuncture, a practitioner diagnoses the patient by asking about their complete health history as a factor in assessing the problem.  They will study body heat, pulse, a patient’s tongue and overall health.

A Painless Process That Made Me Feel Great

Once a plan is finalized the therapist uses very thin needles that are painless and inserted where the practitioner feels that the healing needs to come from.  My experience was that I felt incredibly relaxed and happy.  It was almost like my condition wasn’t going to bother me as much no matter whether the tinnitus treatment cured me or not.

I found out later that the good feeling I was getting was due to chemicals being released which cause relaxation and a sense of relief.  Herbs are also prescribed that work hand in hand with the acupuncture to hopefully assist in the process of curing tinnitus.

My experience with any so called tinnitus cures is not to expect too much.  I think this is a defense mechanism so that I won’t be disappointed if a miracle doesn’t take place.

I was introduced to some people through the Tinnitus Remedy program that had tried acupuncture and felt it really was a bona fide tinnitus treatment.  They felt that the level of relief you received from the treatment was also dependent on the skill of the practitioner.

Tinnitus Cures for Everyone?

My belief is that there are no tinnitus cures that work for everyone.  Curing tinnitus can happen but it is a very individual process that varies for all of us depending on why we have the condition.  What works for me might not work for someone else and vice versa.

It’s difficult for me however not to crusade for the Tinnitus Remedy program as that is what has lead to my condition improving so much.  The idea is that if you approach this problem with a holistic program, you will receive relief.  It may not come over night.  It took a few weeks before I started seeing a change.

The improvement is still taking place and I have a bad night now and then.  The bottom line is that I’m living a normal life and finding that life a pretty wonderful all over again.

Tinnitus Cures: Can Mindful Meditation Get Rid of Your Ringing in the Ears?

Our world as tinnitus victims can revolve around rumors of the latest tinnitus cures.  It’s obvious why that is.  People in pain are looking for a way out.  We all know that tinnitus fits the pain role well.

On this site I’ve talked about constant ringing in the ears and how it affects our lives.  I’ve shared some of the methods that work for me and mindful meditation is another factor in my recovery.

 

Mindful Meditation

Meditation is basically a means of quieting the mind and achieving a higher state of relaxation and oneness with God or spirit or whatever you choose to call it.  Mindful meditation is also a relaxation technique that is a little different.

Rather than attempting to empty your mind of thoughts and noises, you study them as they appear and try to understand it and accept them.  The purpose of this is to allow your brain to regard these noises as quite normal and to start ignoring them.

Your Mind Filters Out the Common Place Sounds

Anything that you start regarding as everyday, normal, common sounds or thought will eventually be disregarded by your mind as being unimportant as many other daily thoughts and sounds are.

When this happens, they are pushed back out of the conscious part of your mind and in this way aren’t front and center each and every minute of each and every day.  Isn’t that one of the tinnitus cures that each of us are looking for?  We want a break from the constant ringing in the ears.

Keeping an Open Mind

When I began this practice I was a bit skeptical but kept an open mind.  Being open to anything that might help is critical with tinnitus or any other condition you may be dealing with.

There are different techniques but the one I do involves a few breathing techniques and counting slowly down from 500.  It only takes 15 to 20 minutes a day.  That’s nothing for achieving a long awaited  sense of relief and peace.

The Tinnitus Remedy book was the turning point for me as it made many of the techniques or tinnitus cures into a daily program which gave me discipline and purpose and it worked.  It even includes a one on one counseling session with the creator of the program.

I highly recommend the program as I do think it will help you get relief and a progressive lessening of the constant ringing in the ears.
