Top 8 effective tinnitus remedies

 

Tinnitus is described as a ringing in the ear, which can either happen in one or both ears. If you have a tinnitus problem, you will hear these noises during your sleep or work or even while listing to something or someone.

 

If you are looking for the most effective tinnitus treatment in Singapore, the following 10 remedies might be quite helpful.

 

Hearing aids

 

Tinnitus could be a symptom of hearing loss, and when it happens, your brain changes the way of processing sounds. A hearing aid is a small electronic device that has an amplifier, speaker, and a microphone to increase the volume of outside noises.

 

Sound masking device

 

Sound masking devices ensure pleasant external noise that will eventually drain the sound of tinnitus.

 

Modified sound machines

 

When you will use a standard making device, it will mask the sound of tinnitus temporarily. But the modern customized masking devices can be tailored according to your tinnitus.

 

Behavioral therapy

 

Sometimes a high level of emotional stress, depression, anxiety, and insomnia can also cause tinnitus, but if you go through Cognitive behavioral therapy, you can get much relief from it.

 

Antidepressant drugs

 

The following antidepressants can be used to treat tinnitus, but only after consulting an ENT specialist.

 

These include,

 

  • Clomipramine (Anafranil)
  • Desipramine (Norpramin)
  • Imipramine (Tofranil)
  • Nortriptyline (Pamelor)
  • Protriptyline (Vivactil)

 

Treating dysfunctions

 

Tinnitus can also irritate our auditory system or could be a sign of excessive ear wax. Treating both problems effectively can help you get relief from tinnitus sooner. 

 

Exercise

 

Exercise contributes significantly to your overall health, but if you want to treat tinnitus through exercises, you need to do only the ones prescribed by your doctor.

 

Effective snoring remedies: Top 6 remedies

 

If you snore, you are not alone, but half of the world does this during their sleep. In most cases, snoring is quite normal, but still, you are advised to consult with a snoring doctor in Singapore if it’s bothering you for a long time. 

 

Snoring could be the symptom of following health conditions,

 

  • Obstructive sleep apnea
  • Obesity
  • Structural issues with your mouth, nose or throat
  • Sleep deprivation

 

Lose weight 

 

If you are overweight, you must try to lose some as it will help to reduce the amount of tissue in the throat. You can lose weight by joining the gym or doing aerobics along with changing to a healthy diet.  

 

Sleep on your side

 

If you have the habit of sleeping on your back, then it can cause the tongue to move back to the throat. This can partly block the airways and will make you snore during sleep.

 

Raise the head of your bed

 

Elevating the head of your bed by 3-4 inches can help to keep the airways open, thus reducing snoring.

Use nasal strips

 

Nasal strips can be attached to the bridge of your nose to increase the space in the nasal passage. This will help you to breathe effectively while reducing or eliminating the problem of snoring. 

 

Treat chronic allergies

 

If you have allergies, it can reduce the airflow through your nose, forcing you to breathe through your mouth. But make sure to consult with your ENT doctor before buying any OTC drugs for snoring.

 

Limit alcohol, stop smoking

 

Try not to consume alcohol at least two hours before bedtime as it will relax the throat muscles, causing you to snore. 

 

Likewise, smoking is an unhealthy habit and can worsen your snoring problem, so try to avoid it completely.
