Stop Ear Ringing

by Ed

Tinnitus or ringing in the ears is a frustrating condition. It is also a very difficult one to treat. I have successfully treated it with acupuncture, but I have also had cases with little or no results. Even so, Chinese Medicine probably has a better success rate than Western Medicine. Here is a Chinese folk remedy you can try yourself. It often has excellent results.

According to Chinese Medicine, there are five main energy systems in the body. Each one is related to two internal organs, a sense organ, a tissue, etc. The one related to the kidneys is also related to the ears. So the folk remedy is to place ginger compresses on the back, over the kidneys. Boil handful of grated ginger in water for 15 minutes. Soak cloth in it and place on kidneys for 30 minutes. If you don’t know where the kidneys are, place the bottom of the cloth level with the navel. The cloth should be about four inches long (up the back) and about six inches wide, centered accross the spine. Try it every day for a week. if nothing else it’ll relax your back, and you may just get rid of that ringing in your ears.
