The first thing to consider for an acoustic neuroma is that if it is a slow-growing, benign tumor, and you're fairly certain it's not cancer, the most natural treatment option would be to observe it.

In terms of natural treatments for the symptoms of acoustic neuromas, such as ringing in the ears and balance, it is important to minimize the amount of stress in your life. Sometimes different hearing aids can assist with hearing loss and elevate the hearing in the ear on the same or opposite side.
