Illnesses from A to Z


Tinnitus is the collective term for ringing in the ears with a wide range of causes. Sometimes, infections, noise damage or arteriosclerotic changes in the middle and inner ear can be found to be triggers. However, for most people plagued by tinnitus, no clear reason for the permanently or episodically occurring sound in the ear can be ascertained diagnostically.

In the meantime, it is known that reduced blood flow to the various structures that are responsible for the formation and transmission of acoustic signals can contribute to the development of tinnitus. Very often, stress, permanent internal tension and performance pressure exacerbate or even trigger the problem. In addition, the whistling, humming or beeping itself is in turn perceived by many patients are very straining and quality of life is significantly impaired.

Accordingly, the treatment should pursue a holistic approach and, besides stimulating the blood flow, should aim for gentle and long-term mental regulation as far as possible. Medicinal mushrooms with their adaptogenic properties can be used with great promise here.
