Do you suffer from tinnitus?
Are you looking for a natural, non-invasive way to make it go away?
Listen to this!
Ear seeding is a holistic healing technique based on the system of auriculotherapy. It involves placing tiny seeds or metal pellets on specific parts of the ear to stimulate the nervous system and promote brain activity.
Since those processes are linked to chronic ear ringing, targeting them may play a significant role in reducing symptoms.
But don’t just take our word for it.
According to a study published in the Journal of Clinical Medicine, patients who underwent auricular acupressure treatments reported reduced tinnitus severity, muscle tension and general stress levels after six weeks.¹
Another study published in the Chinese Journal of Integrative Nursing found that auriculotherapy treatment significantly reduced both tinnitus distress and associated conditions like insomnia.²
So… what makes ear seeds so effective at tuning out tinnitus?
Researchers are still finding out.
Some suggest that it may be due to neurotransmitter production and blood flow; others say it may be related to increased vagal activity in the nervous system. It’s hard to say, since tinnitus isn’t exactly something you can measure.
Ear ringing is a sensation, not a disease, and its root causes vary from person to person. Ear seeds ultimately effect the entire network of nerve endings they stimulate, so imbalances can be corrected by promoting homeostasis in the system as a whole.
Research stuff aside, there’s tons of other reasons people are buzzing about ear seeds. Like the fact that they’re super cute.
Just look at that little crystal… it’s like a tiny, sparkly earring that also happens to make you feel better.
And, unlike traditional treatments that can be expensive and require doctor visits, ear seeds are affordable and can be easily applied at home.
Best of all, they’re natural and non-invasive.
Tinnitus is a major buzzkill… but it doesn’t have to be.
