If you having ringing in your ears, you should be evaluated by a health care professional. Treatment of tinnitus depends upon the cause. Example of treatments include:
What home remedies soothe tinnitus symptoms?
Most cases of tinnitus should be evaluated by an ear, nose, and throat physician before home treatment begins to be sure that the tinnitus is not caused by another treatable problem.
Herbal home remedies (ginkgo biloba, melatonin), and the vitamin zinc are not recommended by the American Academy of Otolaryngology. Lipo-flavonoid is a supplement being marketed as a way to relieve tinnitus, but there is no current evidence it is effective for most cases of tinnitus; however, it may be helpful for symptoms of Meniere's disease. Consult your doctor before taking any herbal remedy.
