Can Our Food Diet Improve Noise In Ears?


Is it possible to control the volume of the awful noise in ears (inner ear tinnitus) simply by modifying our food choices? Well, apparently so! There are many testimonials of chronic tinnitus sufferers who claim they were able to reduce the intensity of ringing in left ear simply by avoiding certain types of food and choosing others.

Which Food Aggravates Noise In Ears?

If you’re working out a suitable tinnitus diet sheet, there are a few facts to keep in mind. In general, fatty products of animal origin, which are often high in cholesterol too, are the type of food you want to get rid of in your kitchen. Replace animal fat with vegetable oil, such as olive oil, rapeseed oil or sunflower oil.

Next, eliminate certain types of food from your diet which seem to trigger the noise in ears, such as wheat products, yellow vegetables, pork, red wine, and citrus fruits. Avoiding cold meals like cold salads, iced water, raw vegetables and greens might also bring you some relief. Quinine in tonic water has a well-documented history of causing tinnitus as well.

There are mixed views on milk products, so you’ll have to discover by trial and error what works for you. The same applies for salt. When taken mainly in the form of salty nuts – avoid fatty, salty snacks like chips! – some people report an improvement, others claim the opposite.   Finally, try avoiding toxic substances, such as caffeine products, tobacco and alcohol, as they tend to have a negative effect on the noise in ears.

Foods That Can Improve Noise In Ears

Start your new tinnitus diet plan by introducing a high-protein diet of beef and beans (e.g. soybeans), broccoli and other vegetables, like cauliflower, spinach, carrots, radishes, Brussels sprouts, garlic, cabbage, asparagus, potatoes, and eggplant (aubergine).

  • Introduce foods high in vitamin A, vitamin B-12 and zinc to your tinnitus food diet (more about vitamins and supplements here).
  • Add nuts (walnuts, almonds)
  • Select  fruit rich in vitamins and zinc/selenium, such as bananas, figs, apples, plums, coconut, and raspberries.
  • Choose low-fat, low-cholesterol, high-protein meat, such as chicken, turkey, mackerel, tuna, and salmon.

For a detailed nutrition plan tailor-made for people suffering from noise in ears, take a look at the successful 5-step holistic system, developed by former severe tinnitus sufferer. This program contains plenty of relevant, high-quality information about proper tinnitus food diet, and it’s considered one of the bestselling books about tinnitus and holistic health on the market.

A Balanced Tinnitus Diet – Inspiration From Ayurveda?

According to Ayurveda,  ringing in left ear (often in combination with other symptoms, such as vertigo, anxiety, insomnia, lack of concentration, sensitivity to cold, impatient and restless mind etc.) is a result of something called unbalanced vata dosha – one of three main governing principles in Ayurveda.

Ayurveda is based on a balanced treatment of these doshas, providing relief to people suffering from a number of chronic medical conditions by creating a tailor-made balanced diet plan. Ayurveda should be used along with exercise and lifestyle changes.

Now, you may or may not believe in alternative remedies in general, and whichever way you feel is OK. However, it’s wise to realize that if conventional therapy can’t help you, it makes sense to have a closer look at other, less known treatment options.


Because in recent years modern medicine has come up with scientific research studies, finding coherence between certain medical conditions, like inner ear tinnitus, thyroid dysfunction and stress, which is something Ayurveda has known for thousands of years.

If you’re generally open to alternative remedies or Ayurvedic in particular, here are a few suggestions for balancing vata dosha, which may provide you with a good support for your current therapy for ringing in left ear.

  • Eat warm food, moderately heavy textures, added butter and fat.
  • Prefer salty, sour, and sweet tastes to bitter tastes.
  • Vata is a cold dry dosha, therefore warm, nourishing foods are good for  stabilizing it, such as warm low-fat milk, cream, butter, warm soups, stews, hot cereals, fresh baked bread.
  • Have a good nourishing breakfast – very important (hot cereals, cream of rice  or wheat, warm oatmeal etc.).
  • Use warming spices, such as cinnamon, cardamom, cumin, ginger, cloves in moderation.

You have a considerably higher chance of success for curing your noise in ears if you focus on one form of treatment, backed up by a change of habits in terms of diet or your general attitude to life. Adopt this approach and you may very likely get huge relief from the tormenting noise in ears.
