Easy Tinnitus Treatment – Ask Doctor Jo

Hey everybody, it’s Doctor Jo and Remi-corn. I know! And today I’m gonna show you a treatment for
tinnitus, which is ringing in the ears. So let’s get started. Oh no! So tinnitus, which is a ringing in your ear,
is 90% of the time caused by repetitive loud noises over a long period of time. But sometimes it can be something a little
more scary. It can be due to an ear infection, it can
be a tumor that’s maybe pressing on your auditory nerve in your ear, so make sure if you have
tinnitus, go to your regular doctor or an ENT, ear, nose and throat specialist, to find
out what is causing it. So a lot for you have asked me about how do
you treat tinnitus. And a lot of times, it’s change of your diet,
doing things like that. But I got really interested cause this is
not my speciality, and I don’t really know if there were any exercises or stretches that
you can do. And I do have tinnitus. It was definitely lots of 80s and 90s rock
band music listening too loud when I was growing up. But so I do have it occasionally, I don’t
have it, it’s not constant that goes on. Every once and a while I’ll just get really
loud ringing in my ears. And so I found this treatment, and it works
for me. So I don’t know if it will work for you, it
probably depends on how severe your case is. But I was really excited because it works
for me. And a lot of times once the ringing starts,
I’ll do this treatment. Most of the time it goes away instantly, with
one round. But sometimes I’ll have to do 2 rounds, but
every single time I’ve done it, it has gone away. And it has actually decreased the repetitions
of time that it comes. It used to happen like once ever day. Now it might happen once every 2-3 weeks. So it really does seem like it works. So to start off with, it’s actually doing
a movement with your ear, so if you have something like big hooped earrings, make sure to take
them out. I’m gonna take my earrings out. But if you have something like a Cochlear
implant, hearing aids, things like that. Just use common sense, don’t be doing this
movement when you have things in your ears. You know if you have a big ole gauge in your
ear, don’t pull on the loop and make it a bigger hole or something like that. So just be careful with this and don’t try
and rip your ear off. Because the treatment is more about the speed,
not the force of it. So as I tell you a little bit more about it,
I’m gonna go ahead and take out my earrings. And so this is a really quick simple thing
that you can do. And again, I just thought it was so cool because
it worked almost instantaneously for me. So the movement is gonna be, you’re gonna
grab your ear lobe, but kind of grab it close to your ear. Don’t grab on the end. Make sure you get a good firm, solid hold. And you’re gonna do a really quick movement,
5 times. Up and away. But again, this is for speed, this is not
for power. So you’re not trying to pull your earlobe
off, you’re just gonna do a quick up and away movement. Sometimes you’ll actually hear a popping noise
in your ear, and as long as it’s not painful, that’s fine. You’re just kind of vibrating that ear canal
to reset everything. So you grab that earlobe, and it’s a quick
up and away kind of movement. So just 5 times That’s it. And then, like I said, 9 times out of 10 my
ringing went completely away. But again, make sure that you’re being safe
doing this, and that you’re grabbing nice and tightly and it’s up and away. So almost at an angle this way. But again, you’re not pulling hard, you’re
pulling quick. So 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. And I can hear a little kind of popping in
my canal. You know I’m not exactly sure the science
behind why this happens, but my thought process is, you know, you’re getting that canal making
that kind of vibration, breaking it up maybe if there is and infection or something in
there. If that ringing is just causing, you know
going in through the ear. It’s almost resetting everything in there. And again, like I said, it might not work
for you, but it’s such and easy simple thing to try, I think it’s worth trying, and it
definitely worked for me. So there you have it, that’s how you treat
tinnitus. Yeah, what’s that? Ringing in the ears. If you’d like to help support my channel,

  1. I believe that tinnitus and ringing in the ears aren't the same thing..it's more of a hissing sound than a ringing..I've had tinnitus since 1985..I'm sure you've helped people with ringing in the ears..you have helped me many times …so thanks

  2. Hello doc I really don't know which type of tinnitus I have my tinnitus not worse in silent but in noise even in fan

  3. But what if I have rining in my brain like not the ears when I close the ears rining is still there and I have whooshing in my right ear it is so anoying like I am having 2 symptoms at once..

  4. Thanks for the Tinnitus treatment Demo. My wife tends to have that problem. I will let her know about it.

  5. My tinnitus is due of Otosclerosis 😭 wat i do Dr Jo plzzz help me out…these abnormal sounds r annoying

  6. 35 years. Originally a loud explosion at a quarry near my farm. The sound hit a metal barn door and burst my eardrum .

  7. It didnt help me but it sure help me relax n energize listening to your positivity voice. Love your dog !

  8. I have always been told that their is nothing that can be done for the ringing in my ears by doctors. I will try your method to see if indeed it helps. Ringing is so loud I sometimes have trouble getting to sleep. Thanks

  9. Okay Doctor Jo it is about 3 days since I tried your helpful tinnitus treatment or activity on my ears. Here is a digital number on volume while I used to watch TV 36 since I have found your suggestion I can have the digital number down around 26 these numbers are when the actual program is on not when their is a add. That being said their is a marked improvement and much less when I am trying to sleep. I hope this keeps working cause it is not driving me CRAZY! Thanks so much for sharing. I have had ringing in my ears every since I was in Vietnam, some fifty years or so ago. Thanks any relief is better than no relief.😎👍👍👍

  10. I've heard that a ketogenic diet (eliminating sugar) and Cataplex F vitamins can reverse tinnitus. For many I'm told it's a hardening or sticking of "the hammer" in your ear and a pre-diabetic condition, and going keto and using Cataplex F can reverse the condition.

  11. Thanks DocJo! This didn't help for my friend but it warmed his ears 🙂
    This will probably sound weird, but if you are reading this tell me what you think? 🙂
    Im quite certain what reduced my own tinnitus by 80-100% within weeks, after having tinnitus for years , was the results of improving my posture. I had a bad habit of slouching, not sitting right on my "sitz bones", and therefore had a forward head posture while sitting. This not only caused compression of my nerves going down into the arm and shoulders, but also caused some of my neck muscles to contract and shorten, and others to stretch and weaken. Tension, swelling, inflammation, weakness and trigger points in the muscles all around my neck and shoulders I believe caused my tinnitus, especially the SCM muscle that attaches right behind the ear. To remove the trigger points in my SCM, and other muscles, I had to first eliminate the reason why its overworking-my posture. Had to break down and open up my pecs with stretches every day, strengthen my deep cervical flexors, and start doing rhomboid and rotator cuff exercises every day. Otherwise all my neck muscles would stay sore and overworked even if I stretched them or tried to strengthen them directly. Also had to learn how to sit on my sitz bones, which took me 3 weeks before I started doing it naturally. Along with fixing my tinnitus, this made my breathing easier, improved sleep, lowered blood pressure that had gone up a lot, gave me more energy, removed brain fog, removed all hand, elbow, neck and shoulder pain I had that my doctors and PT's didn't want to even acknowledge was a real thing (I got diagnosed with chronic pain syndrome instead after neurologist didnt find any damaged nerve).
    After having done 100s of hours of research, along with how I've been met by the doctor "experts" in my country, I can only conclude that forward head posture is a major epidemic, that is being overlooked and causing misdiagnoses by 1000s of doctors worldwide. Doctors told me there was nothing that could be done for me to make me feel better, and gave me paracetamol and said byebye. And it felt like I could do nothing too, hopeless because pain was everywhere. Don't always listen to MRI results (can be very misleading) or doctors (Except docJo), do your own research and listen to your body, sometimes the solution is simple and the body can do miracle healing once it finally gets what it needs. If you read this far, you are insane 🙂

  12. Are you describing about sound felt similar to pulse after closing ears.? It worked for me I am facing it in both left and right ear. Only intensity of sound has reduced and heating sensation is also decreased. Thank you.

  13. Thank you so much! This really helped! Didn’t completely go away because when I close up my ears I can hear it but this has definitely helped! And do you think that tinnitus is linked to consuming sugar and gluten?


  15. Wow!!! After 1 try the ringing reduced alot…i almost thought it was gone…then it kinda came back and i did it again and much softer….ist thing ive tried that actually did something…thank you!

  16. Thank you so much for sharing!! It didn't help me strongly, but I will keep on doing it and hopefully one day irt will work better!

  17. I have had quite severe tinnitus for as long as I can remember and not many things have worked at all, so I didn't exactly have high hopes for this, but it actually reduced the ringing ever so slightly, which is always better than nothing. No miracle cure for me, but a nice little trick anyway. Thanks!

  18. I don't have ringing in my ears, but do have thumping with my heartbeat in my left ear, also a little in my right. Is there a treatment for this type of tinnitus?

  19. I’m so glad I found this. It cleared one ear instantly but not the other although it did calm it. Thank you!!! 💛

  20. Thanks for this – it does temporarily reduce my tinnitus (actually heard silence the first time yesterday in over a year which was nice). Back today but I'd made peace with it many months ago.

    I'm curious what's the science behind this temporary cure? By pulling the ear are you making space for a particular tube to expand (assuming it's constriction creates the noise?) – I have ringing in the ear and this has helped – has it helped anyone with maybe a different type of tinnitus such as hissing?

  21. My tennitus i can remember being all the way all back from a baby. I tried and it didn't work , if it helps i hear it when it's silent. Please help.

  22. Amazing,
    I had noise in my two ears.
    I tried one therapy yesterday and my left ear stopped immediately, but my right ear continue.
    Now I tried this therapy and my right ear stopped immediately.

    Thank you so much.

  23. I've just tried this and it's either completely (but only temporarily) removed or reduced the ringing in my right ear. The left still rings loud 🙁

    My ear had been ringing for days! Finally got it to stop! I was ready to go to the dr. But I don’t have to now!! I do have a vp shunt with 18 shunt revision surgeries, so I was worried something was wrong! Thank you!

  25. Oh my god,I have had constant Tinnitus for so many years,and now that I watched this video and I did what she said I can finally enjoy sleeping in silence and concentrate on exams and studying,thank you so much for making this!!!

  26. Is it TINN-a-tus or tin-NIGHT-us? Some people think I'm pronouncing "tinnitus" wrong in the video, but I'm not. According the American Tinnitus Association (ATA), "Tinnitus has two different pronunciations [TINN-a-tus and tin-NIGHT-us], both of which are correct and interchangeable." So potato, potahto, TINN-a-tus, tin-NIGHT-us … 😄

  27. Unfortunatley it didn't work in my case 🙁 Think i'm just gonna have to live with this. It all started with a constant very high pitched ringing, now since recently a droning-buzzing hum joined the party….yeey….. 🙁 I need some music or noise around me constantly now so it doesn't drive me up the wall.

  28. thank you and i appreciate this video, this definitely working gradually alot but it never stopped mine yet

    i have suspicion that too much snacking up intensely sour food like tamarind from afternoon to night triggered this, because im quite addicted to it, never experienced this violent ringing noise before

  29. I think it helped a little! Going to continue doing this and maybe I can get rid of this for good. Went to the ENT who determined I don’t have any hearing loss or buildup. Not sure what’s causing the sounds but this little exercise seems to have helped. Thanks Dr. Jo!

  30. Dr. Jo! you are my Tinnitus miracle worker, watched this video yesterday have been quick pulling the sound eased down, but i'm bearing this hissy sound its fairing away. your a God Send. Thank you. Min. Rich.

  31. Dr Jo…ive been suffering from acute tinnitus in my left ear for a week…went to dr and got nasal sprays. It wasn't helping. I was at my wits end!!! I tried this – this morning and it helped!!!! Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!!!! It's making it bearable now…and I'm going to keep doing it.

  32. My ears popped while doing it so I’m guessing I did it correctly.. not if I got results but I will continue to do it everyday and see if it helps over time. How many times a day do you think I should do this and how many rounds

  33. Hello. I have tinitus since 2017. I am Falling asleep with headphones (or one headphone if you are a side sleeper) listening ASMR. I tried your method, but i am not sure it made any difference for me. I will try tomorrow again.

  34. tinnitus have no cure right ? it can be cause permanent hearing loss…?i have aching on my back part of my ear…also i have tinnitus for more than 2 years…is it the starting of hearing loss…?

  35. Le mi try and see coz it's two months with that ear problem en i have tried several treatments but its not working 4 mi

  36. Dr.good evening.I am aged 77 having ringing sound in ear past seven mth. can pulling the ear be done many times a day.Can I do it with both ears.I am taking dizziron tabs. Get imbalance while walking.Awaiting your kind reply.Many thanks.

  37. So I have a question dr jo, I just delivered my baby it’s been 3 months now and since then I developed this ear ringing. It’s not loud it’s kind of soft but it’s irritating, and I never had this problem until I delivered my baby. I have had wierd issues. Like my ears would start ringing and I would get super light headed and feel like I want to pass out. I have gotten several blood tests done and everything comes back negative. Nothing is wrong, the first time it happened I was a little dehydrated and I had an IV at the hospital. Then 2 other times it happened again but nothing was wrong. All blood tests came back negative, nothing wrong.

  38. Hi. I don't usually comment on videos but I actually cried from joy when I tried this. I've been suffering from minor but CONSTANT ringing in my ears for almost two or three years now. Kind of a medium-loudness. As soon as I tried this it GOT VERY QUIET ALMOST IMMEDIATELY!!! Thank you so much for sharing this I feel like this has pretty much saved me from going completely crazy. Thank you thank you thank you!!!
