Tinnitus is a symptom in which patients hear a ringing in their ears. It is the result of several possible underlying conditions, including circulatory disorders and physical ear trauma. Some treatment methods alleviate the underlying cause, while others try to address the symptom itself by reducing the ringing noise. Sanum is a company that produces homeopathic alternative remedies, claiming to treat a wide range of medical disorders.
Sanum claims that its homeopathic medications regulate pH levels, stimulate the immune system and absorb toxins. The company says that its alternative medication—which the FDA has not approved for the treatment of any medical condition—can treat rheumatism, glandular disorders, colitis and more. However, there is no medical evidence suggesting that Sanum is an effective treatment for tinnitus. Even if Sanum’s claims were true, none of the medical conditions it claims to treat are related to tinnitus. If Sanum boosted your immune system and eliminated your colitis, as it claims to do, the ringing in your ears would assuredly remain.
Talk to your doctor about medically supported tinnitus relief. Several treatment options are available. White noise machines are effective at reducing the annoying ringing in the ears. Excessive earwax can cause tinnitus, so talk to your otolaryngologist about earwax removal strategies. Tricyclic antidepressants (e.g. amitriptyline) have demonstrated their efficacy in treating severe tinnitus. However, use this method with caution, as potential side effects include blurred vision and heart problems.
