    Tinnitus therapy: Natural remedies

    Few accidents at work have consequences that lead to long term suffering and complications quite like tinnitus.

    Though the illness itself is far from life-threatening, just imagine for a moment suffering from a constant ringing in the ears. The frustration and irritation must be considerable. As industrial illnesses go it is most definitely one to avoid.

    However, for some people it is too late and it is time to think about treatments rather than prevention. Fortunately, there are a number of natural treatments for tinnitus available in the form of both foods and supplements. These include:

    • Ginkgo biloba: This particular product can help increase the amount of blood flowing to the head, neck and brain. Further benefits include a reduction in the inflammation of blood vessels. This in turn ensures better circulation to the capillaries surrounding the ear. Ginkgo biloba may take some time to take effect and is best consumed in combination with other remedies.
    • Caffeine: Avoiding caffeine can reduce the symptoms of tinnitus as too much can limit blood-flow to the head and constrict the capillaries around the ear.
    • Salt: Too much salt can cause a rise in blood pressure. Reducing this can potentially bring down the intensity of the ringing in your ears.
    • White noise: The use of something like a fan or a white noise generator can help mask the ringing from tinnitus and has proven to be particularly beneficial in terms of helping people who suffer from it get to sleep.

    Construction workers are particularly susceptible to developing tinnitus as a work-related illness because they often work for long period of time in environments and with machines that generate an awful lot of noise.

    This is where safety equipment is so important to maintaining health and safety at work. Effective ear-muffs and other protection should always be provided to those who need it.
