“More than 120 million people worldwide have a hearing loss.”—World Health Organization.
Our ability to hear is a precious gift. But as we age, our hearing weakens. Modern society generates various sounds and noises that seem to accelerate this process. A senior scientist at the Central Institute for the Deaf, in St. Louis, Missouri, USA, observes: “In the typical American, about 75 percent of hearing loss is caused not only by the aging process but also by things that affect the ears throughout life.”
Natural tinnitus like a tick can be a sign that your body has a problem with more than just hearing. Let’s find out the causes of tinnitus with Family Market and how to get rid of it!
Tinnitus is one of the signs that something is no longer working properly. Tinnitus is a constant or intermittent ringing in the ears, with an extremely loud tinnitus or a soft buzzing, usually occurring in young adults and older adults. You may have tinnitus in the left ear, tinnitus in the right ear (tinnitus in one ear), or tinnitus in both ears.
Common causes of tinnitus
The causes of tinnitus are diverse, but the most common are the following 8 reasons:
1. The sound is too loud
2. Having health problems
3. Not cleaning the ears regularly
4. Concussion head area
5. Jaw joint problem
6. Due to bone growth
7. Being overly stressed
8. The cause of tinnitus can be caused by drugs.
1. Clean your ears properly
2. Keep your ears dry
3. Protect your ears from loud noises
• Use ear protection: If your work environment always generates loud noises, use protective gear to prevent tinnitus.
• Do not abuse headphones to listen to music: If you wear headphones and listen to loud music, it may cause hearing loss. Apply the 60/60 rule: don’t listen to music at more than 60% of the maximum volume, and don’t use headphones for more than 60 minutes a day.
• Don’t listen to two loud sources at once: This can really damage your hearing and tinnitus is inevitable. For example, if you are watching TV and the noise from the vacuum cleaner is too loud, do not turn up the volume of the TV, even if you listen to music and then try to speak louder.
4. Change to a healthier lifestyle
5. Go to the doctor regularly to check your ears
