Family in the park enjoying foods that help reduce tinnitus symptoms.

Playing in the water, holidays, and a lot of good things to eat are some of the things that come along with summer. When summertime comes, specific things to eat move to the top of everyone’s must-have list. If you suffer from tinnitus, you might discover that some of these tasty goodies can provide relief. Fundamentally, tinnitus is not really about what you consume; it’s associated with how well you hear. A contributing factor may be the food that you eat though. Consider seven summertime treats that may assist with your tinnitus.

Understanding Tinnitus

The real reason for tinnitus is often hearing loss. When your hearing diminishes, you can start to experience phantom sounds like ringing, buzzing, or clicking. Tinnitus is poorly grasped, but it’s possible that this is the brain’s way of dealing with the loss of hearing.

There is no cure for it and no way to eliminate the phantom sounds completely. Your best hope is finding ways to manage it. Here are some means of doing it:

  • Amplification devices like hearing aids
  • Masking devices such as white noise machines
  • Relaxation techniques
  • Diet and lifestyle changes

If you Suffer From Tinnitus, There Are a few Foods You Should Stay Away From Consuming

What you don’t consume this summertime is just as significant as what you do if you want to control your tinnitus. Try avoiding these:

  • Salty meals
  • Processed sugar
  • Flavor enhancers like MSG
  • Fatty foods

Try, this summertime to think about the impact on your body and your tinnitus, that your food will have.

Try These Seven Delicious Summertime Goodies to Reduce Your Tinnitus

This summer what can you consume that will help out your tinnitus? Here are seven ideas for you to try.

1. Chicken on the Grill

A smart low fat and tasty summer choice is barbecued chicken. Because it’s very tasty you won’t even need very much salt. Chicken is also high in vitamin B12, and has been shown to reduce tinnitus symptoms.

When grilling chicken keep in mind these couple of things:

Take off the skin prior to barbecuing. The skin is the place where most of the fat is.

Be certain to thoroughly cleanse your hands and counter surfaces immediately following handling uncooked chicken.

Have the barbecue grill hot while cooking chicken. That better keeps in the taste and makes certain the meat reaches a safe temperature of 170 degrees.

2. Frozen Bananas

Bananas anytime of the year are a sweet snack, but, in the summer, put them in the freezer to make them refreshing, too. Just put a popsicle stick in a peeled banana and stick it into the freezer.

You can even put chocolate or peanut butter on them prior to freezing. The bodily fluids are helped by the high levels of potassium in bananas which in turn helps lessen tinnitus.

3. Pineapple

Pineapple is a natural anti-inflammatory, so it could be helpful for those who have tinnitus. It’s an adaptable fruit, too. Uncooked it makes a tasty treat and is great in desserts. You can chill it in juice to create a fruity popsicle or add a piece to a cup of iced tea for flavor. And on the grill you can garnish up meats with it.

4. Watermelon

While eating watermelon, you don’t only cool off but also boost your fluid consumption. It also has antioxidants which improve your overall wellness and reduce your danger of getting sick. Watermelon is high in:

  • Vitamin C
  • Pantothenic acid
  • Copper
  • Biotin
  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin B6
  • Vitamin B1

Having no fat and almost no calories, it is the perfect summer snack.

5. Iced Tea With Ginger

The pressure inside of the ear that may trigger tinnitus, may be able to be alleviated with ginger. It becomes a tasty and refreshing summer drink when you incorporate it with a couple different other spices. Start by boiling one teaspoon of:

  • Oregano
  • Cilantro
  • Rosemary
  • Sage
  • Cinnamon

Use four cups of water for 15 minutes to steep three pieces of ginger. Once the tea cools pour it over ice. You are welcome to add to it for more flavor such as a lemon slice, or play with the recipe to suit your flavor taste.

6. Kiwi

Your blood pressure may be reduced by eating kiwi. It’s high in calcium, magnesium, potassium and it contains more vitamin C than an equal-sized orange. Barbecued meats, desserts and salads are all complemented by this fuzzy brown fruit. You may even put a slice in your favorite summer drink to give it a unique flavor.

7. Avocado

The avocado is a super-food that is great for your heart, as well as helping to control your tinnitus. In only one half of an avocado you get:

  • 1 percent of your daily recommended intake of calcium
  • 5 percent of your daily recommended intake of magnesium
  • 10 percent of your daily recommended intake of potassium

Additionally it contains beneficial fats and carotenoids to combat illness. The downside to the avocado is calories, so a small amount goes a long way. Add it to your favorite summertime salad recipe.

This summer season, go out and appreciate some practical, healthy treats. Your hearing might just thank you by ringing less.
