Red Ginseng Improves Chronic Tinnitus

Home / Acupuncture / Red Ginseng Improves Chronic Tinnitus

Tinnitus (“ringing in the ear”) is a fairly common complaint that involves 1 out of 7 people.  Most people learn to live with it but for others it can disrupt their quality of life.

I have seen this condition respond sometimes to acupuncture and frequency specific microcurrent but it is often resistant to treatment.

 

A recent study has found that Korean red ginseng root (panax ginseng), a plant with strong anti-oxidants can be of benefit.  Those who took  3,000mg/day saw the greatest relief.
