Due to faulty lifestyle, our immunity drops, we fall sick and as a direct effect of that our work performance and stamina drops too. As a result, we are affected by several small diseases which eventually grows into a serious ailment later in life. One of such diseases that have an unassuming beginning is Tinnitus. Tinnitus is a disease which is characterised by sounds in the ear and is caused because of stress, stiffness of the neck, hindrance of blood flow towards the head, or because of a severe ear infection.
