In a recent tinnitus survey conducted amongst 1523 tinnitus sufferers, 35.6% of the respondents cited stress as the cause of their tinnitus. It is well known that stress is a aggravating factor with tinnitus and most respondents report that their tinnitus "becomes worse when stressed!"
It is thus a good idea to manage the stress levels everyday and to take steps to reduce the amount of stress you are exposed to. It is also probably a good idea to use natural methods to obtain stress relief.
I recommend using natural stress treatment methods because of all the side effects associated with conventional stress medications. After all you don't want to deal with your stress but possibly be left with some other horrible side effects.
