Bio Ear – can it be the remedy we have been looking for? Firstly what is Bio Ear exactly … we know it is a herbal formulation. The folks who believe in Bio Ear argue that the herbs work in concert with each other to reduce the buzzing, hissing, roaring, whistling, rushing, and other sounds tinnitus sufferers could hear. Bio Ear does not contend to be a cure.
Reviews from Bio Ear users vary substantially. One Bio Ear user pointed out that he has never heard of any reports to say that those drops / supplements has ever helped, himself included. A different Bio Ear consumer on the otherhand indicated that it does actually help him if he puts Bio Ear on 2 cotton balls and puts them in his ears just prior to taking a nap.
Once more, the reviews of Bio Ear are mixed. Why is that? The honest fact is that Tinnitus is caused by numerous diverse things and Bio Ear might give a little respite to one type of tinnitus sufferer and not another . For example, Bio Ear will not help if your tinnitus is caused by wax touching your eardrum, nor will Bio Ear be of benefit if the tinnitus is caused by a narrowing of your carotid artery (the key artery which brings blood to the brain.) Bio Ear may help the kind of tinnitus that was caused by extended exposure to loud noise.
So what is the answer? Before you spend your money on Bio Ear or on a membership to a Tinnitus site (that all pretty much say the same stuff as free resources anyhow,) go see your practitioner and exclude the following causes for your tinnitus:
Stress / anxiety
Exposure to loud noise (and yes, that means loud music too!)
Loud work environment with inadequate ear protection
Low and high Blood Pressure
Too much aspirin or other medication that you are taking at present
Head, neck or jaw injury
Loss of hearing (this can frequently be treated by getting the correct hearing aid.) A hearing test is often a good place to begin.
Cancer (this is very rare and is only considered if the tinnitus is in just one ear.)
Ok, your doctor couldn’t diagnose what the actual cause of your tinnitus is and she told you that “you have to learn to live with it.” At this point, do you rush off and buy some Bio Ear? Yet again, not necessarily … keep in mind, what may work for someone else might not necessarily help you. What you mustn’t do is quit. You have to take responsibility for handling your own tinnitus. Remember that you are not on your own. There are tons of individuals all over the world that experience this extremely distressing situation.
The good news is that if your GP has given you the “all clear” on the physical front, you now know that (as irritating as it is) your tinnitus is unlikely to kill you! The American Tinnitus Association recommends that you carry on seeking dependable information from believable resources, and what source can be more believable than an ex tinnitus sufferer?
