Tinnitus, which causes ringing in the ears, can stem from the ear itself, but may also be caused by high blood pressure and other problems. The source of tinnitus, according to Chinese Medicine will be rooted in the kidneys. For old people, who are most often affected by tinnitus, a Chinese Medicine practitioner will tone the kidneys to strengthen the blood. If the kidney essence is deficient, Chinese herbs which can alleviate this include Chinese wolfberry, mulberry fruit and dodder seed. Antelope or deer horn can also be helpful (although these are forbidden from sale in the UK), but for chronic weakness of kidneys, leading to tinnitus, a combination of herbs and acupuncture is best.
