Orlando, FL — June 02, 2016 - The use of natural remedies such turmeric has been increasingly popular over the years. This medicinal spice has long been believed to fight a range of conditions, ranging from fatal ailments to minor ones such as tinnitus.
Turmeric’s anti-inflammatory effects are potentially helpful against tinnitus. This condition is characterized by a sensation of roaring, ringing, chirping, buzzing, or humming sound. The sound happens even if not stimulated by external noises.
According to statistics, there are more than 15 million individuals in the United States who suffer from this condition regularly. Research has even shown that many chronic tinnitus cases are associated with a degenerative process and characterized by inflammation.
It is advised that sufferers should make some dietary and lifestyle changes to reverse the inflammatory damage. While inflammation is the natural response of the body to tissue damage, it can become a problem when it persists.
Inflammation has been associated with the development of a wide array of degenerative diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and arthritis. There are many factors believed to contribute to the development of tinnitus.
Some of these factors are Meniere’s disease, build-up of inner ear wax, exposure to loud noises, ear infections, vestibular disorders, allergies, low thyroid function, and hypertension. On very rare cases, a tumor is involved in the development of the condition.
Inflammation as well as poor circulation within the inner ear is one of the common causes of the condition. Chronic inflammation in the body typically triggers the massive secretion of certain inflammatory mediating prostaglandins.
Pro-inflammatory mediators spike up vasoconstriction and platelet aggregation, which results in the decrease of blood flow to the inner ear and other small capillaries. It also raises the levels of lymphatic fluid in the inner ear.
These processes result in inner ear pressure, which causes stimulation in the auditory nerve. Auditory nerve stimulation then creates a series of action potentials interpreted by the brain as sound.
There are medications available for tinnitus. However, unfortunately, their use has been associated with side effects. Turmeric could be an excellent natural alternative for the condition.
Turmeric has an active ingredient called curcumin, which has a variety of healing substances. This phytochemical contains antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-carcinogenic, and antioxidant properties. Turmeric is best known for its anti-inflammatory effects.
As a matter of fact, it has been widely believed to be helpful for many conditions associated with inflammation such as arthritis. Individuals who suffer from tinnitus may incorporate turmeric in their diet. They may add turmeric powder in their dish and beverages or use curcumin supplements (www.amazon.com/tumeric-with-black-pepper/dp/B0166KAW8M).
