Here are the top 10 home remedies for tinnitus.

1. Ginkgo Biloba

Ginkgo biloba is considered the best herbal remedy for tinnitus. It plays a key role in improving blood circulation, which in turn improves the ear functioning and reduces ringing sensations.

Plus, this herb has antibacterial and antifungal properties that can treat any underlying infection that may be contributing to the condition.

To treat tinnitus, you can take ginkgo biloba extract that you can buy from herbal drug stores. Take 120 to 240 mg of standardized extract containing 24 to 32 percent flavonoids and 6 to 12 percent terpenoids.

Take it daily, ideally in three or four divided doses, for six weeks to get positive results. Consult your doctor before starting the treatment as this herb may interact with certain medications.

Note: Ginkgo biloba should not be given to children.

2. Apple Cider Vinegar

Being an antifungal and anti-inflammatory agent, apple cider vinegar can also be used to treat any underlying infection that may be contributing to tinnitus. Apple cider vinegar also balances the alkaline level in the body.

Mix two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar and a little honey in a glass of water.
Drink this solution two or three times daily until the ringing sensation in the ears stops.

3. Holy Basil

Holy basil is another good natural remedy for treating tinnitus. Its antibacterial properties can kill the bacteria that may be causing the problem. Plus, this herb can give you relief from ear pain.

Put a handful of basil leaves in a blender to make a paste.
Put the paste on a strainer and press with a spoon to extract the juice.
Warm the basil juice slightly.
Using a dropper, put two or three drops of it in the affected ear.
Repeat twice daily for three or four days.

4. Onions

The medicinal and antibacterial properties of onions help treat ear infections causing tinnitus.
Chop one small onion into small pieces.
Microwave the onions for one to two minutes.
Allow it to cool, and then strain out the juice.
Put two or three drops of the juice in the infected ear.
Leave it in the ear for five minutes, then turn your head to let the juice drain out.
Do this a few times a week to get rid of tinnitus.

5. Garlic

Garlic can be used to treat tinnitus caused by high altitudes or cold weather. Garlic helps reduce inflammation as well as improve blood circulation. Plus, it has antibacterial properties that can get rid of any infection that may be contributing to the problem.

Fry two crushed garlic cloves in one tablespoon of sesame oil.
After straining and letting it cool, and put two or three drops of the oil into the ear canal.
Do this daily at night before going to bed. Continue for about one week.
You can also take garlic capsules or use this herb in your cooking.

6. Saline Solution

Saline solution can help treat tinnitus caused by blocked nasal passages or excessive fluid in the sinuses.

Mix one teaspoon each of salt and glycerin in two cups of warm water to make a homemade saline solution.
Use a nasal spray bottle to inject the solution into each nostril until it starts to drain into the back of your throat.
Spray the solution into your throat also.
Follow this remedy three times a day until your nasal passages are clear.

7. Ginger

Ginger is also used as a cure for tinnitus. The medicinal and healing properties in ginger help improve blood circulation, get rid of pathogens, and fight free radicals. Plus, it has aspirin-like properties that can help reduce pain accompanying tinnitus.

Add one-half teaspoon of freshly grated ginger to a cup of hot water. Allow it to steep for 10 minutes, strain it, and add a little honey. Drink this herbal tea two or three times a day for several days to ease tinnitus symptoms.
Also, chew a few slices of raw ginger. The process of chewing helps relieve pressure in the ear that may be causing tinnitus.

8. Mustard Oil

Mustard oil is another popular home remedy for tinnitus. Being a natural rubefacient, mustard oil helps increase circulation. Also, its antifungal and antibacterial properties help treat ear infections. Mustard oil also boosts the immune system to protect against further infections and helps remove the buildup of earwax.

Slightly warm a little mustard oil in a microwave.
Put a few drops of warm mustard oil directly into the affected ear.
Allow the oil to sit for five to 10 minutes.
Then tilt your head to the other side so that the oil drains out of the ear.
Remove the softened earwax with the help of an ear bud.
Repeat once daily for a few days.

9. Pumpkin

Eating foods like pumpkin that are rich in vitamin A can help get rid of tinnitus. It has been found that vitamin A deficiency is one of the leading causes of many ear problems, including tinnitus.

Vitamin A is essential for the proper functioning of the cochlea, or inner ear, which is responsible for reception and transmission of sounds.

Simply include pumpkin in your salad or soup, or have it steamed, grilled, stuffed, stir-fried, or in baked dishes.

10. Pineapple

Adding pineapple to your diet can help reduce tinnitus. Pineapple helps lessen inflammation throughout the body due to the presence of an enzyme known as bromelain. Plus, pineapple has various vitamins including vitamin A.

Eat fresh pineapple at regular intervals throughout the day to reduce inflammation. You can also drink fresh pineapple juice.

Some additional tips:

Use a warm compress or heating pad (wrapped in a cloth) to relieve pressure and pain
Cut back or stop drinking alcohol
Stop smoking
Limit your use of aspirin
Exercise regularly
Limit or avoid exposure to loud noises
Practice relaxation techniques like meditation or yoga.
Play music or white noise when you are trying to fall asleep.
Follow these remedies and tips to treat tinnitus. However, visit your doctor immediately if you have numbness on one side of the face or body, vertigo, loss of balance, nausea or vomiting.

@ my online survival database under HEALTH, Challenges, eye sight and hearing there is a very interesting episode of SciShow.

According to the SciShow explanation of what (usually) causes tinnitus, it's about damaged haircells in the ear. So we're talking scarring/scar tissue.
Now, though most people believe there's nothing to be done about scar tissue, this is actually far from the truth. And there are 3 great ways to go about dealing with it (and hence with broken haircells in the ear).

DMSO; will help the body dissolve scar tissue. 50 years of research into DMSO and it's used on million-dollar horses and top athletes... However, since DMSO is simply a chemical that is a byproduct of the timber industry, it is impossible for pharmaceutical companies to patent it; hence, it's hard to make money with it; hence it is ignored by pharmaceutical drug pushers [commonly referred to as "certified medical practitioners"...].

Colloidal Silver; supposedly the amazing thing about cs is that it enables the body to turn cells of the body back into stemcells, allowing 100% healing since these stemcells can then change into whatever cells are required (according to the body's DNA blueprint).
Now, DMSO has the amazing ability to carry with it chemical elements that otherwise cannot pass through cell membranes. Therefore, if one were to combine DMSO with colloidal silver, it is possible cures could happen that conventional folk might call miraculous. DMSO is practically harmless and a sollution [maybe 50% distilled water/50% DMSO] could be dripped into the ear to work it's way towards the damaged hair cells in the ear.

Mini Beet Protocol; Robert Von's MBP uses the miraculous healing power of zinc to heal the body of scar tissue throughout the body. In other words, though it will heal visible scars on the skin [the body's largest organ], internal scarring of all sorts also disappear (i.e. including that at the tips of hair cells in the ear).
Beets contain copious amounts of zinc sulphate [which is not recognized as "zinc" in tables referring to mineral contents] and offer the body an amazing source of this healing mineral. The Mini Beet Protocol has been developed to enable people to ingest as much of this as possible without having to become sick from it's detoxing [Herzheimer's] effects. In short the MBP is:
- cup of beet juice
- cup of asparagus juice
- eat a whole apple
- eat a whole carrot
The asparagus juice intensifies the effect of the beet juice considerably and the apple and carrot help eliminate the immediate detox effects caused by the juices. Usually done 3 x a week for practical reasons, but the Major Beet Protocol is also possible [so it's clearly not possible to do too much of the Mini Beet Protocol]. All that juicing and munching, however, does tend to become tedious, which is why most people just do it a few times a week and give it a few months to work it's magic.

Now imagine doing the MBP while simultaneously regularly pouring a solution of DMSO + cs into the ear... (I should really get around to trying that some time.)

Socrates, great information! All that sounds doable.
I have made an antibiotic juice including beets and the apples, etc. but it has been awhile...

Like Barb, I appreciate your post, and am especially taken with the MiniBeet Protocol, as it is composed of totally natural items.  Each one of the ingredients is truy a nutritional powerhouse, so the combo must be dyn-a-mite!

In all my years of trying out what works, i have learned many things but one of the most important is that when you are trying to change something, throw all you have at it simultaneously and let the body work it out.

The wonderful thing about natural solutions is that they do not interfere with other ones, so it's possible, for instance, to take in a superfood, an herb, a fungus, Vitamins, oxygen, etc. simultaneously. They all work on a different level, subtle or no, and end up supporting each other.
Pharmaceutical options, however, are prejudiced and mainstreamers tend to think it's all or nothing. But if you have a problem, chances are you really need to establish a new baseline and that can take quite a lot.

There are a few exceptions-to-the-rule, like one cannot use colloidal silver and MMS simultaneously. On the other hand, it is possible to use them alternatively, which means you do one the first day and the other the second. [But that is concerning immediate threats to survival, mainly.]
Synergy is the word; exercise may not do it, diet may not do it, herbs may not do it... but exercise, diet and herbs simultaneously might accomplish that which mainstreamers think impossible.

Socrates, all that makes sense to me. Thanks for posting!

Perhaps longer intervals would be better because of longer half-life of silver in the body.
From https://www.cgcsforum.com/index.php?topic=3309.0
"So depending on the experiment, we get widely different answers: 1 day, 8 days, 46 days, and 77 days."

No data for half-life of MMS.
From http://mmswiki.is/index.php/Basic_Science_of_MMS
"The half life of watery solutions of chlorine dioxide decreases at increasing pH values."

MMS should be neutralized after a few hours at most
