There are a variety of homeopathic cures for tinnitus, which is a noise that originates within the ear. Each cure is specific for certain types of tinnitus that are characterized by different sounds and other bodily effects. Homeopathy does not work for everyone, but doctors have experienced successes with treating patients through homeopathic remedies. According to a 2006 article by Dr. Andrew Weil, posted on Prevention.com, homeopathy seems to work best for treating chronic conditions that cannot be effectively treated through conventional methods.

It is important to speak with a homeopath practitioner who has been certified by a reputable homeopathic organization (e.g. American Board of Homeotherapeutics or the Council of Homeopathic Certification) before you consider using homeopathic remedies. Your practitioner will be able to advise you on the best type of remedy to address your symptoms, dosages and what type of substances to avoid while you are taking the treatments; a practitioner will also monitor your symptoms and progress and decide when the treatments should be stopped or changed.
