Tinnitus Remedy: How to Stop Ringing in the Ears
A2Z of Health Beauty and Fitness ^ | 11-26-2009 | Article by: Dr. Jan Strydom

Posted on 10/14/2011 7:46:04 AM PDT by Red Badger

One should always understand that we are all different so that it is impossible to suggest a single form of treatment that will work in every case and for every person. However, there is a very simple technique that has often shown to be effective in many cases of tinnitus (ringing in the ears.) Any person who is afflicted by this very unpleasant condition would do well to at least give this simple technique a try.

To perform this technique, put the palms of your hands over your ears. The fingers are on the back of the head. The middle fingers point towards each other and are on the base of the skull just above the point where the skull ends. Now lift the index fingers and place them on top of the middle fingers and then snap the index fingers off the middle fingers so that they beat the skull like a drum. In fact, with your hands covering your ears, the sound may be quite loud and may indeed sound like the beating of a drum. Click here to download a video clip demonstrating this procedure. (The video clip can be played using either Windows Media Player or Quick Time.)

Repeat the drumming about 40 to 50 times. Depending on the severity of the condition, one could repeat the technique several times a day.

Comment from Barbara Clay, Las Vegas, NV: Thank you soooooo much. I have had ringing in my ears, tinnitus for about a month now and nothing worked for me until now. I did the technique shown on this website and the ringing stop instantly. Dr. Jan Strydom, you are a life saver. The ringing was almost driving me crazy. Now I have my sanity back. Thanks again Dr.

Comment from Chirstine in Groton, USA: My ears have been ringing all day. It was so uncomfortable. I found your website and tried your technique. The ringing in one ear is gone and greatly reduced in the other ear! Thank you!

Comment from Linda in Bealeton, US: Woke up being driven crazy by ringing in right ear. Went online to find a natural remedy. Came upon your ear drumming technique. It worked instantly & I didn't even know if I was doing it properly. Thank you!

Hey Red! I don’t know how to post a thread so I am “calling you”! This actually helps but folks need to watch the 12 second video because the written directions suck. http://health.learninginfo.org/tinnitus.htm The Dr.’s name is Jan Strydom.

So simple and i am hearing better than I have in three years!

====================================================================

I up for giving it a try, but don’t have high hopes.

There are apparently many caused of tinnitus, some involving nerves and some involving physical damage to the ears, usually from high noise exposure (mine I know is related to firing guns without earplugs, working around hot rods with open headers without earplugs, and working around both recip and jet engines without earplugs - all in my stupid youth).

From what I’ve been told by several doctors, if you have the physical damage, you may as well learn to live with it because it ain’t going away.

Another way to deal with tinnitus is to listen to the song “Whistle While You Work” for a minute or two. Soon you’ll forget all about your tinnitus :-)

The responses on this thread are amazing. I don’t have tinnitus so I can’t try it to any effect but good for all of you who have found relief!

I was wrong, there was an effect for me. I don’t have ringing but after doing the technique a little bit my hearing was definitely clearer. Maybe crisper is a better way to describe it. Outstanding! What a simple thing to do.
