Did you know that what you eat has a big connection to the severity of your tinnitus. There isn't really a tinnitus diet as such but there are certain foods that can trigger severe episodes of ringing in the ears and can cause no end of stress for the sufferer.

Simple lifestyle changes can in fact reduce your tinnitus noises, so much so that you might even forget you have tinnitus and improve your overall health at the same time.

Research has shown that our modern day diets can increase the level of tinnitus in sufferers. In studies carried out in the USA there was a big difference in the experiences of tinnitus sufferers who had good diets compared to those who ate a lot of junk food.

The main culprits were salt, simple sugars, saturated fats, trans-fats, nicotine, caffeine and alcohol. Unfortunately a lot of the food we eat nowadays do contain high levels of these ingredients. A lot of processed food and fast food is very high in salt, saturated fats and sugar. Processed foods also contain chemicals for preservation, flavour enhancement and colour many of these chemicals also have a negative effect on tinnitus. So if you are really serious about reducing the effects of your tinnitus you should take a long hard look at your diet and try to eliminate processed, pre-packaged and fast foods.

Now this may seem difficult for many people living the busy lives we live today. But if you become more aware of what you are eating and try to opt for fresh foods rather than ready pre-pared foods you should see a marked improvement in your tinnitus.

Create your own tinnitus diet: Eating healthy doesn't have to be hard just try to get back to basics and think about how people used to eat before the advent of convenience foods. Good old fashioned hearty meals of meat or fish and vegetables are simple to prepare and tasty, or if you fancy something lighter prepare your own salads or blend up veggies with water for soup. Change the way you cook your food, opt for grilling, baking or steaming. Avoid adding fat, salt or sugar when cooking or at the table. Use herbs to season your food instead. Buy yourself a good quality simple cook book - don't go for anything too fancy as you will probably give up on it and resort back to convenience food.

The final element to look at is stimulants such as caffeine, nicotine and alcohol. These may be harder to cut out but probably make the most difference. By over stimulating the central nervous system you can increase tinnitus immensely. Allowing the body to function at its optimum natural state without these stimulants will not only decrease your tinnitus but will also regulate your energy levels. So if you are prone to having a coffee in the afternoon to boost your energy you will find you do not need this anymore. However when you first start to remove these stimulants from your diet you may well experience withdrawal symptoms which may be difficult to overcome. You must keep in mind what life without tinnitus would be like and if you really desire relief from tinnitus you must make the choice to ditch the stimulants. If you find it difficult you might consider hypnosis or some other form of help in giving up these very addictive stimulants.

So the tinnitus diet: Take a common sense approach to your diet and you will improve your overall health giving you more energy, reducing your tinnitus and leaving you feeling fantastic.
