Ringing in the ears (tinnitus) due to depression?


I am 35 years old, I suffer for about a month by whistling in my ears, as a probable cause I can see the depressive states that I have been diagnosed with. Audiometer I'm fine, a doctor at the ENT recommends a vasodil. Infusion during weekly hospitalization. Will ginseng help me? M.

Good day.,

Tinnitus (whistling in your ears) may seem like a problem entirely marginal, rare, trivial and unimportant. But that's not the case. Tinnitus should not be ignored. From publicly published web site responses, tinnitus involves at least two:

The reason why you do not underestimate tinnitus can be read in the first. It was a particularly insistent case of jaw pain where I really tried to find a combination of herbs that could make ginseng even stronger. The state of progress in this case is unknown to me.

Ginseng will help you if your tinnitus is immune , circulatory, or otherwise "civilized". The other of the above queries was from the lady who had a real success in using ginseng to treat tinnitus difficulties.

If it is a cause other than an infection or a tumor (perhaps benign) , ginseng does not need to be. It may also be acute or chronic intoxication - the presence of poisonous substance in the environment . Heavy metals, thinners, construction works, do you think anything? In any case, I recommend increasing the emphasis on healthy eating.

But I think I can reliably exclude the fact that the cause of your whistling in your ears is depressive. According to my sense and my current knowledge of neurobiology, I can say that such a direct depression does not cause tinnitus. Maybe your depression and tinnitus have a common cause.

Regarding coping with depression, I started to write a more general article, but this is yet only elaborated and unfinished: Depression and the potential of ginseng and other herbs in coping with it .

Perhaps I am surprised, but the cause of depression is not so bad a life situation as a rather bad diet. As a result, the chemical happening in the brain is shifting towards depression, and your I will find the right reasons that make you the most joyous, and then you are attributing the cause of your depression. (It's called rationalization, of course, I'm not talking about real wounds of fate like family loss, heavy health damage, etc.)

People with depression, after adjusting their lifestyle, are surprised to find that although their life problems have not yet been resolved, depression is gone, instead of drowning in black thoughts, they are starting to build a rational solution in a systematic, constructive manner. Without doing this, I will give you two suspects: caffeine and poor sleep mode.

Caffeine is a huge chapter in itself, a chapter I have not yet opened properly, let alone finish:

Here, however, we will be concerned that one of the symptoms of chronic caffeineism is so-called caffeine psychosis and severe depression, which will temporarily get worse when we try to drop caffeine. In today's world, it is quite difficult to avoid caffeine, beware of it.

The story about biorhythms, on the other hand, has already finished, so here's to your benefit: Rhythm of sleep and waking: What it is, how to destroy it and how to adjust it again .

That is all.
