Depending on how severe the tinnitus is, it can be cured or it may be a permanent condition. Mild tinnitus may go away in a few days or few months. However, if there is permanent damage, the symptoms may persist for a lifetime and you will need to adjust and learn to live with it.

Tinnitus may occur is there are injuries to the ear such as a perforated ear drum or the fine hairs in the ears are bent or damaged due to exposure to loud noises. When there is prolonged exposure to loud noises, the hairs in the ears will get bent or damaged. When this happens, the ringing will start.

The ringing will stop when the bent hairs straighten out. If there is more serious damage and the sufferer is exposed to further loud noises, permanent hearing loss may occur.

Circulatory problems in the neck or head may also be a cause for tinnitus. This is known as pulsatile tinnitus. In many cases, the doctor may be able to remedy the problem with surgery or medication that will lower cholesterol levels to unclog blocked arteries and thereby alleviate the tinnitus symptoms.

Strong medications may also have side effects such as tinnitus ringing. People suffering from hyperthyroidism, high blood pressure, multiple sclerosis, etc. may experience tinnitus too.

The first and most crucial step that anyone with tinnitus can take will be to avoid exposure to loud noises. Get a pair of ear plugs and wear it if you are in a job that exposes you to loud noise. Do not listen to music or watch movies at a volume that is too high for your ears to handle.

Secondly, you should clean up your diet. A poor diet is one of the major factors that worsens the tinnitus condition. Foods that contain caffeine, saturated fat, refined sugars, additives and other harmful substances such as sugar substitutes should be avoided.

These foods over stimulate the senses in the body and trigger the onset of tinnitus symptoms. Opt for a wholesome and healthy diet that will do your body good. Ideally, you should also embark on a daily exercise program to increase your strength and boost blood circulation. Healthy circulation will prevent pulsatile tinnitus.

Stress is also another silent culprit. You should practice relaxation techniques such as yoga, meditation, deep breathing, etc. to calm your mind and soul. Tinnitus can be a very annoying and aggravating condition if the sounds that you’re hearing persist on and on.By getting stressed and angry, you will just exacerbate the condition and this will make you angrier. This is a vicious cycle that can only end if you learn to calm down and accept that tinnitus is here to stay.

Next, keep a positive attitude and try out holistic remedies to get control of the problem and give your body time to heal. If the damage is not permanent, you will recover and the ringing will stop.

If your tinnitus is severe, by using proper techniques and remedy, you will be able to alleviate some of the symptoms and make things a little easier for yourself.
