There are many methods on how to control tinnitus naturally including with the use of castor oil. Castor oil is an important part of various natural treatments for the relief of various diseases and condition besides tinnitus.
What is castor oil?
Castor oil is derived from the castor seed – Ricinus communis (see image on the left of the plant and seeds). Castor oil is a triglyceride with the most common fatty acid found in this oil being ricinoleic acid.
The reason that castor oil is a big part of many natural remedies is believed to be because of this ricinoleic acid due to its reported health benefits. It should be noted that there isn’t much scientific research to support the use of castor oil as a health remedy but this is understandable since many natural remedies are rarely scientifically tested because there is no financial incentive for testing natural remedies that are commonly available to anyone.
Egdar Cayce who is a natural healer who died in the ’40s spearheaded the use of castor oil and in particular castor oil packs for the treatment of various health conditions such as constipation (taken orally or through the use of castor oil packs), epilepsy, stimulating the immune system, arthritis, gynecological issues, multiple sclerosis, etc.
Tinnitus currently does not have a cure because it most cases it is difficult to determine the root cause of the ringing in the ears or other phantom sounds that can be heard in the ears such as whistling, roaring, clicking, static, humming, buzzing, etc.
While there is no cure, there are many methods that can be used to lessen the intensity of tinnitus even though they do not cure the condition. Some methods on how to control tinnitus naturally include sound therapy, white noise, diet changes, meditation, habituation therapy, etc. Castor oil is another of the methods on how to control tinnitus naturally.
These various methods seek to make you less aware of the noises so that you can go about your daily life without being adversely impacted by the constant ringing in your ears.
As mentioned previously, this is not a cure for tinnitus. It is simply used to help relieve some of the symptoms of tinnitus. It is usually used in combination with other treatment therapies for tinnitus.
The common ways that people use castor oil for tinnitus treatment is by applying 5 to 8 drops of castor oil into the ear every day for four weeks. Cover with a cotton ball. Natural remedies usually take a while to work which is why you need to wait four weeks to determine whether it is effective for you or not. If it is not, stop use and try other remedies. If you do happen to obtain relief in a few days, still continue for the full 4 weeks.
Castor oil contains various anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties and as mentioned previously, can help boost the immune system so using castor oil is one of the top ways on how to control tinnitus naturally. Since the root cause may be unknown, it may be possible for castor oil to get at this root cause whatever it may be.
Best castor oil to use for tinnitus treatment
Always look for organic, cold pressed, unrefined castor oil which will contain most of the healing properties that you need.
Castor oil may cause allergic reactions in some people. If this occurs, stop use or reduce dose. Castor oil is sometimes recommended as a laxative so if you do take it, in addition to its effects as a laxative, you may experience intestinal discomfort, diarrhea, etc. Castor oil taken internally can also induce labor so unless you are trying to go into labor, do not take castor oil internally if pregnant.
These are some of the tips on using castor oil for tinnitus treatment. It is definitely one of the top methods on how to control tinnitus naturally but there are better methods.
These better methods are other holistic methods that are not only about how to control tinnitus naturally but actually seek to get at the root cause, eliminate it and cure tinnitus using holistic methods only.
