Can you help me with this please. When I search the net I find the points for tinittus to vary a lot. I have used GB2, LI4, TW 's, I believe my tinittus is from a neck injury around age 10yrs. I wonder if all tinittus is due to nerve damage? Mine is gradually getting worse as I age. I have tried the above points, plus Ginko Biloba (many times) and the Lifewave Glutathione patches. All with little success. Then I wonder that if the tinittus is due to damage of the auditory nerve (through injury), is this an impossible journey for me? Thank you.

Tinnitus can be treated with success only by acupuncture, but you can not do this by yourself. You need to see an experienced acupuncturist for this problem. The most important points to treat this problem are those located in the ear vicinity, such as G-2/ Si-19/ Sj-21 and Sj-17. Other points may be used in accordance with a specific diagnosis. Needle manipulation here must be excellent, this may mark the success or failure of the whole treatment.

Thank you for answering this query. I was going to but found it rather daunting. Tinnitus can be a difficult condition to both cope with and to treat.
I would like to concur with you that acupuncture is by far the best and most useful modality in a case like this. Since you have answered that so expertly I would like to throw something more into the mix.
Nerve regeneration has been studied by homoeopaths for quite some time. The best adjuncts to anykind of therapy involving nerve regeneration are the Potassium salts, especially Kali-phos and Kali-mur. Nerve physiology is so very dependent on an efficient use of these electrolytes.
Hypeicum is an axcellent vulnery (injury healer) with application to small bones (of spine) and fine nerves (sensory esp. peripheral sensory). These are two of the best recommendations, but dosages, method of application etc. are dependant on a number of individual factors, just like good acupuncture does.
B-complex and Vitamin E are the best vitamins to consider as adjuvant to acupuncture of this nature.
All the best.
