Denver Acupuncture Tinnitus Treatment – The Problem Defined
Do you have ringing in the ear? Does it sound like a bell, chirping crickets, or the ocean? Is the sound there all the time, or does it come and go? Is it noticeable just when you are lying in bed in a quiet room, or can you hear it even on a busy street? Is there accompanying hearing loss? If you’ve been to the doctor you know there is no good tinnitus treatment available from Western medicine. But wait… The Denver Acupuncture tinnitus treatment can help!
Denver Acupuncture Tinnitus Treatment – How It Works
You need to know up front that acupuncture for ringing in the ears works for certain types of tinnitus but not for others. Let’s start with the type of tinnitus where acupuncture does not work. It does not work well for patients in their 80’s who suffer from progressive hearing loss due to old age. The tinnitus that comes from progressive hearing loss does not respond well to acupuncture.
Tinnitus treatment with acupuncture does work well for all other types of tinnitus. For example, tinnitus will often strike people in their 40’s, 50’s and 60’s after an illness. Or tinnitus will develop when they are under very high stress or have been through a traumatic event. Tinnitus treatment with acupuncture will work for people who have a strong temper and get upset easily. They present with red face, and typically run on the hot side (both temperature-wise and emotionally).
Basically, if you have developed tinnitus and are not also dealing with age-related hearing loss, then the Denver Acupuncture tinnitus treatment can help. Now if your tinnitus is so loud that it impairs your hearing, the tinnitus treatment will still help. In this case the hearing loss is not due to age-related ear function, but rather to tinnitus simply blocking out other sounds. These types of tinnitus will respond to our tinnitus treatment.
Denver Acupuncture Tinnitus Treatment – What To Expect
The treatment will vary from patient to patient, depending on their symptoms. However, here are some basic concepts for how acupuncture works in a tinnitus treatment.
First, illness and trauma can often create imbalances in a person’s body that generate what we call Yang energy to rise to the head. When this Yang energy floods the head, it can cause tinnitus.
Secondly, people with quick tempers also have a tendency toward Yang Rising, the rising of Yang energy to the head. In these cases we balance the body, remove the excess Yang energy and also anchor the Yang energy so it does not rise.
Thirdly, people with what we call Yin Deficiency also have a tendency to develop Yang Rising and it’s related tinnitus symptoms. In these cases we focus on nourishing the Yin to resolve the deficiency.
With all of these situations, once balance is restored, the symptom of ringing in the ears can be resolved. Acupuncture always treats the root problem. Once the root problem is corrected, the symptoms typically goes away.
