How To Cure Tinnitus In 1 Minute
Tinnitus is usually described as a ringing in the ears, but it can also sound like clicking, hissing, roaring, or buzzing. Tinnitus involves perceiving sound when no external noise is present. The sound can be very soft or very loud, and high-pitched or low-pitched. Some people hear it in one ear and others hear it in both.
People with severe tinnitus may have problems hearing, working, or sleeping. Tinnitus is not a disease — it’s a symptom. It’s a sign that something is wrong with your auditory system, which includes your ear, the auditory nerve that connects the inner ear to the brain, and the parts of the brain that process sound.
There are a variety of different conditions that can cause tinnitus. One of the most common is noise-induced hearing loss. In this video we share our top tips to Cure Tinnitus In 1 Minute. Any extra resources or information will be included in the description so make sure to check it out.
Our first tip is to try to Hearing aids
Most people develop tinnitus as a symptom of hearing loss. When you lose hearing, your brain undergoes changes in the way it processes sound frequencies. A hearing aid is a small electronic device that uses a microphone, amplifier, and speaker to increase the volume of external noises.
This can mollify neuroplastic changes in the brain’s ability to process sound. If you have tinnitus, you may find that the better you hear, the less you notice your tinnitus. A 2007 survey of healthcare providers published in The Hearing Review, found that roughly 60 percent of people with tinnitus experienced at least some relief from a hearing aid. Roughly 22 percent found significant relief.
Our second tip is to try Sound-masking devices
Sound-masking devices provide a pleasant or benign external noise that partially drowns out the internal sound of tinnitus. The traditional sound-masking device is a tabletop sound machine, but there are also small electronic devices that fit in the ear.
These devices can play white noise, pink noise, nature noises, music, or other ambient sounds. Most people prefer a level of external sound that is just slightly louder than their tinnitus, but others prefer a masking sound that completely drowns out the ringing. Some people use commercial sound machines designed to help people relax or fall asleep.
You can also use headphones, television, music, or even a fan. A 2017 study in the journal Frontiers in Aging Neuroscience found that masking was most effective when using broadband noise, such as white noise or pink noise. Nature sounds proved much less effective.
Our third tip is to try Modified or customized sound machines.
Standard masking devices help to mask the sound of tinnitus while you are using them, but they have no long-lasting effects. Modern medical-grade devices use customized sounds tailored specifically to your tinnitus. Unlike regular sound machines, these devices are only worn intermittently. You may experience benefits long after the device is turned off, and over time, you may experience long-term improvement in the perceived loudness of your tinnitus. A 2017 study published in the Annals of Ontology, Rhinology, and Laryngology, found that customized sound decreases the loudness of tinnitus and may be superior to broadband noise.
Our fourth tip is to try Behavioral therapy
Tinnitus is associated with a high level of emotional stress. Depression, anxiety, and insomnia are not uncommon in people with tinnitus. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a type of talk therapy that helps people with tinnitus learn to live with their condition. Rather than reducing the sound itself, CBT teaches you how to accept it.
The goal is to improve your quality of life and prevent tinnitus from driving you crazy. CBT involves working with a therapist or counselor, typically once per week, to identify and change negative thought patterns. CBT was initially developed as a treatment for depression and other psychological problems, but it seems to work well for people with tinnitus. Several studies and meta-reviews, including one published in the Korean Journal of Audiology, have found that CBT significantly improves irritation and annoyance that often comes with tinnitus.
Our fifth tip is to try Progressive tinnitus management
Progressive tinnitus management (PTM) is a therapeutic treatment program offered by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Tinnitus is one of the most common disabilities seen in veterans of the armed services. The loud noises of war (and training) often lead to noise-induced hearing loss. If you’re a veteran, talk to your local VA hospital about their tinnitus treatment programs. You may want to consult the National Center for Rehabilitative Auditory Research (NCRAR) at the VA. They have a step-by-step tinnitus workbook and educational materials that may be helpful.
Our sixth tip is to try Exercise
Exercise contributes significantly to your overall well-being. Tinnitus can be aggravated by stress, depression, anxiety, lack of sleep, and illness. Regular exercise will help you manage stress, sleep better, and stay healthier.

Our final tip is to try Mindfulness-based stress reduction
During an eight-week course of mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), participants develop the skills to control their attention through mindfulness training.
Traditionally, the program was designed to draw people’s attention away from their chronic pain, but it can be equally effective for tinnitus. The similarities between chronic pain and tinnitus have led researchers to develop a mindfulness-based tinnitus stress reduction (MBTSR) program.
The results of a pilot study, which were published in The Hearing Journal, found that participants of an eight-week MBTSR program experienced significantly altered perceptions of their tinnitus. This included a reduction in depression and anxiety. So that sums up our top tips for curing tinnitus.
