Silence That Ringing in Your Ears for Good
Dear Living Well Daily Reader,
One day, it just shows up unexpectedly.
You know, that constant ringing, buzzing or hissing sound in your ears.
And to make things worse, nobody else can hear this maddening racket, but it’s with you every second of the day.
It’s called tinnitus, and it’s often caused by early hearing loss, ear cell damage or circulation problems in the ears and for some folks it never goes away.
But if you have tinnitus, you’re not alone — as many as one in five people do.
Lots of these poor folks have been told by the mainstream for years that there’s practically nothing they can do except mask the noise with white noise machines.
You deserve a REAL solution that can silence that annoying ringing for good.
And Ohio researchers have discovered one that may shock you.
It turns out that the natural hormone melatonin may be the greatest tinnitus breakthrough on the market today.
You’ve probably heard all about how melatonin supplements can help regulate your body’s natural sleep cycle. But they can decrease the intensity of your tinnitus symptoms, too.
In a study out of Ohio State University, 61 people with tinnitus took either 3 mg of melatonin a day or placebo for 30 days. And the folks who took melatonin experienced significant relief of their tinnitus symptoms based on two widely used scales.
There’s some debate about why melatonin helps treat tinnitus. It may help your body heal naturally by promoting better sleep. And good sleep is pretty hard to come by when you have tinnitus.
You can pick up melatonin supplements affordably through most online supplement retailers — remember that 3 mg was the dose used in the study.
And be sure to check the warning labels on any drugs you’re taking. Some medications, like certain types of antidepressants, are known to exacerbate tinnitus.
