Mudra cure for tinnitus

Not many alternative sciences offer much help with tinnitus. I found this wonderful little booklet on mudra which is THE book for cure  and also, the only book I know in mudra which gives contraindications also... all other mudra books completely ignore this big issue with mudra, that it can be dangerous if overpracticed.

For tinnitus, the mudra to be held, according to the book Health at your Fingertips, by Dr Dhiren Gala, is the akaash Shamaak mudra (decreasing the element of space in the body)

Press down middle finger till it touches base of the thumb. Do for each hand. For chronic problems, u must hold it for 45 minutes daily (if unable to do this at one go, to break it up into three parts, 15 min each). To be held anytime other than 2 to 6 am in the morning.

Yes, no need to check. The timing is right..NOT between 2 to 6 am (I don't know about the pm) that is because the element u are trying to control is flowing at that time...

How should you hold your hand while doing this mudra? Should the hand be placed on the lap just like doing gyan mudra while meditating or should the hand be held vertical with remaining fingers pointing upwards? Please clarify.

As usual aprajita.. on the knees, palms up. Other fingers pointing out/up.

Akash mudra
Never do this mudra between 2 to 6 am and pm.
As that is known as the vata time.
It is believed excess vata in the body is the reason for tinnitus.
So it is advised not to do this mudra in vata time as the problem will get more severe.
