gingko bilboa is a good remedy for tinnitus...did hearing damage from 
attending too many really loud concerts...and it's virtually gone since I've 
started taking it.  Check with your doc though, if you are on blood thinning 
meds or heart meds it can have an adverse affect.  It's really good for your 
memory too.
Happy gardening...
