What is Tinnitus?

Tinnitus is the medical term for the buzzing or ringing noise one hears in the ears. People report different kinds of sounds that vary from ringing to roaring, buzzing, whistling, hissing, etc. The patient only hears such sound internally and can be a frustrating experience. Sometimes, it interferes with the real sounds around the patient. In a long term, it may have adverse psychological effects on the patient and result in stress, anxiety, or depression. Tinnitus can affect people of all ages, however, it is a common occurrence in old age people.

Tinnitus is not a disease condition, but a symptom of another underlying pathology like age-related hearing loss, ear injury, circulatory system disorders, and neurological conditions.

The Ayurveda therapies and medicines strengthen the nerves near the ear and balance the aggravated Vata dosha responsible for Tinnitus.

The Benefits of Ayurveda for Tinnitus treatment at Prakash Nethralaya

Investigates The Root Cause

The Ayurvedic approach to illness looks for the fundamental causes of the disease rather than symptoms. The main causative factor of the disease is removed from the patient's daily routine. Once the diagnosis is confirmed, treatment is decided from the available two directions as per the classics. First one is Shodhan (detoxification) to clean the body with the help of Panchakarma therapies and the another is Shaman (balancing the doshas) by using Ayurveda medicines, diet correction and lifestyle adjustments. Detoxification with Panchakarma improves the efficacy of Ayurveda medicines in chronic and advanced cases.

Medicines Are Safe To Take

Ayurveda medications are not manufactured in a synthetic or chemical form but in their natural state. Because of this, the herbs are gentle on the body, and there is no chance of side effect or adverse reactions, regardless of the length of time the patient takes them. At Prakash Nethralaya, we use the best quality Ayurveda medicines to ensure the safest and fastest recovery. There is in house processing and dispensing of the medicines for our patients. A few medicines are made available from the good manufacturing companies also.

Uses Holistic Strategy

Ayurveda is based on the idea that each person has a distinct personality and body type and, as a result, their treatment. Ayurveda places more emphasis on treating the patient rather than treating the ailment. The physical composition of two different people with the same ailment may need a different therapeutic approach. An Ayurveda expert at Prakash Nethralaya uses this body type analysis and then reaches at a conclusion of diagnosis and the line of treatment. Accordingly our doctors prescribe the diet, lifestyle changes, yoga, Ayurveda medicines, and Panchakarma therapies.
