Yoga for Tinnitus

Some people have tinnitus temporarily. It could be right after they walk out of a blaring concert. But when it is chronic, it is a high-pitched sound that is heard in one or both ears.

If you suffer from tinnitus, your cognitive function could be affected, and your attention span might reduce. While these are its effects in the day, you could be sleepless at night if you suffer from tinnitus.

Some of the significant causes of tinnitus are as follows Stress, stiff neck or jaw, Low blood circulation in the brain, High levels of cholesterol in the blood, Cardiac ailments, Infection in the ear, nose or throat and  Stiffening of the middle bone in the ear.
