[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  05/19/2011: Josh from Philadelphia, Pa: "I developed tinnitus suddenly after a 15 minute cell phone call on speakerphone, during which the sound quality was very rattly and metallic, with the high points sounding something like breaking glass. The volume wasn't very loud or next to my ear - it was just a very cacophonous rattly pitch. Right afterwards my ears were ringing and my left ear continued to ring for over a week, at which time I visited an ear doctor who pulled out a large hunk of earwax and the ringing abated while in the office, but soon started up after I left (or maybe the white noise of air conditioning in the office disguised the ringing).

After a week of continuous ringing I theorized that the wild frequencies during the phone call screwed up my ears' micro-hairs, and that perhaps coaxing them back to harmony would take the opposite kind of sound frequency - a single balanced continuous tone (along with self-healing affirmations and a belief that my ear was healing). On youtube I found a 528 hz solfeggio frequency tone (just a single continuous tone) and played it over and over via good Bose headphones. After two days my tinnitus abated considerably. I have to mention at the same time I started listening to the tones, my devout grandmother prayed for my hearing, so whether it was the 528 hz tone, the prayers or some other factor (additional vitamins, garlic oil in the ear a few times, and CoQ10 supplements), I do not know. My ear is still sensitive to high pitched squeaky sounds and I wear an earplug to give my ear a rest, but the ringing is probably only 5-10% of what it was two weeks ago and I can live with it, whereas I could not before. I think the first step is believing you can be cured, rather than listening to doctors who say it cannot be cured. If a cut or broken bone heals, so can your ears."

08/20/2012: Riverchaser from Tarrytown, NY replies: "Thank you Josh from Philly. I think my tinnitus is a response to the growling sound of my cell phone vibration alarm or, a combination of small gentle ringing and that repeated vibration.

One morning I woke up and realized my cell phone had been making this repetative vibration sound while at the same time, I was sleeping/dreaming, I dreamt I was also hearing the cell phone vibration alarm and then woke. Ever since, about a week ago, I have this pulsing/drowing sound in my left year. I immediatly removed the phone from my bed and placed it across the room. The day before I removed it from my bedroom. Perhaps, there is a connection to cell phone and towers, computer waves etc and ringing in ones ears.

Tonight I placed a few very small pieces of garlic in a cotten ball and put it in my ear. It worked for an infection two years ago so maybe it might work for my recent tinnitus. I will try the ALA and the ACV deluted in water:)

Thank everyone who made time to share their experience and ideas. I hope we all find a cure."
09/03/2012: Leonardj replies: "Hi, I think a great place to start for many people that have tinnitus is simply using drops of olive oil to remove excess ear wax from the ears. I belive most people who have tinnitus have the category known as Subjective Tinnitus, which is where only you yourself can hear the sounds. One of the main causes of Subjective Tinnitus can be a build up of Ear Wax. Hope this helps. Leonard"
10/22/2012: Densiav from Munich, Germany replies: "Hi, My mom has suffered from ear tinnitus for over 20 years. Me being a long-time yoga practicioner and instructor, I adviced her to change her food choices, as tinnitus in combination with vertigo (her case) are often a result of something called unbalanced vata dosha - one of three main governing principles in ayurveda.

I'm not sure how you all feel about alternative approach, but where conventional therapy can't help, this is your only chance - and it worked for her!

She started eating as I suggested and in one month the ringing noise was gone:

- eat warm food, moderately heavy textures, added butter and fat; preferrably salt, sour, and sweet tastes

- use foods such as: warm milk, cream, butter, warm soups, stews, hot cereals, fresh baked bread.

- vata is a cold dry dosha, therefore warm, nourishing foods such as these are good for stabilizing it

- have a good nourishing breakfast is very important (hot cereals, cream of rice or wheat, warm oatmeal etc.)

- spices: cinnamon, cardamom, cumin, ginger, cloves in moderation.

- avoid: cold meal (cold salads, iced water, raw vegetable, greens), caffeine products, bitter tastes, sweets.

If taken a holistic approach - trying some effective treatment methods as suggested above together with change of food choices, I am sure it's possible for anyone to start enjoying a true silence soon (unless the condition is associated with permanent damage of inner ear..)."

My LOUD ear-ringing of several years has quieted to a barely audible hum since starting my ascorbic acid at very high amounts, a mere 5 days ago. I had also had trouble with my mind racing, thoughts coming jumbled and fast, even when asleep! That, too, is gone. I am so happy about these improvements, and I had all but given up hope that either would ever resolve. --T"
10/23/2012: Mmsg from Somewhere, Europe replies: "Way, what is your "very high amounts" of ascorbic acid and do you take it with baking soda to make sodium ascorbate as Ted recommends?"
10/24/2012: Waymore from Motown, Ca/ Usa replies: "Hi Somewhere! I have just now heard of Ted's mixture, adding baking soda to Vit. C, and ought to buy his book soon, just to see what's in there! Perhaps sodium ascorbate is a better form of Vit C.... I don't know. Ted?

To answer your question: I am taking a staggered mix of lypospheric Vit C -without food- about two packs of 1,000mg each, three times a day. I try to fit in three Emergen-C packs, 1,000mg each, with ascorbic acid powder, 1 teaspoon mixed into each drink -with food. Total: Between 10-12 grams.

I plan to only take this amount for about two-three weeks, then drop down to slightly lower amounts for maintainence and slow-but-steady improvement. My plan of action is based on much reading of doctor's research first, so is fairly sound, and I tolerate it really well, and feel wonderful.

Next, I am adding Ted's idea, of Borax and sea salt, 1/8th of a tspn of each in a liter of water, sipped throughout the day. I plan on feeling even better! --T."

My mind also feels very flighty, fast, speedy when trying to sleep. Perhaps we are undergoing some kind of change at this time. Perhaps it is harp. Perhaps, perhaps. One fellow believes he got ray-gunned. I believe just about anything is possible nowadays. Mine first came when I was outside reading, and I suddenly felt like I was being blasted with something high-pressured. It has never left, three years now.

I get brief relief by stopping my ears with my fingers and applying medium pressure for a moment.

Stranger still, there is mention of 'noise' and a 'noisome noise' in Scripture, which can be aided as described just above, with fingers in ears. How odd is that? --T."

03/09/2011: Colleen from Ny: "I am a massage therapist working on a client who has severe tinnitus due to a physical injury. I've narrowed the cause down to his SCM's, levator scap and I have to assume the scalenes. My question is, has anybody helped their tinnitus (which was due to a physical injury) with massage or some other modality to the neck muscle? I'm using very light pressure and still causing much pain. How long did it take to see results? How often were you getting treated? Was it light or deep pressure? I really would like to help this person. A chiropractor is now involved also so hoping the combo will help. Any advice will be much appreciated!!
Thank you!"

12/07/2009: Just A Guy from Stevens Point, Wi: "For years I have had a high ringing going on. Lately I started to listen to it, as the ringing won't stop. The sound I was hearing split into three tones, each higher then the last one. These three tones split into three tones each. Each of these triads forms a triangle of sound. So I now have three triangles of sound created out of nine tones filin my head.

I have a feeling that as I listen to all nine, I just might burst into pure knowledge and finally learn how to heal others with just thoughts alone. I am now questioning doctors because this explanation isn't very rational to them, it would mean we are made out of sound. Yet, there is something to this tone split.

And you guys think you are having issues."

01/04/2009: Thomas Yates from Rhodes, Greece: "TINNITUS
THE CURSE OF THE GODS.

First of all I would like to state that I'm not religious so why did I title this 'The curse of the gods'?

The best way to explain is to start at the beginning, I was one of nine children although one of my brothers died at a very early age. I didn't know him as I was born afterwards. I had five brothers and two sisters and my earliest thoughts were making sure I took care of myself, No one else seemed to care. We had a mother that didn't give a damn except that she had a good time so taking care of ourselves while she was out boozing seemed the norm. We never seemed to get on in the early days and fighting with each other was the course of a normal day, Stealing a slice of bread and putting dripping on it then swearing to god it wasn't you who stole it. I learnt very early to finish any food that was given had to be eaten very quickly before my brothers finished theirs and decided they were still hungry and steal mine.

If mother ever came in and caught us being naughty she would demand we line up then she would use the buckle side of a belt on us all. It didn't matter how you protested your innocence or the fact that you were genuinely innocent. I still have scars on my left shin where I had to go the hospital for stitches.

My father or who I thought to be my true father at the time was totally opposite I can never remember him actually raising his hand to any of us. I do remember running home from school and arriving home early, to see mother all flustered on the settee and up popped this guy from the back saying to me that he was my uncle Jim and it was a surprise. I was to tell no one of our little secret. (Later I found out through one of my brothers that Jim was my true father) He could never replace my father who died twenty-eight years ago. I was very sad and distraught and remember the man was too good to go, he worked all his life and fought gallantly in the Second World War. He took early retirement from the mine at the age of sixty-two and never saw sixty-three. Why oh why did he have to go and the witch I knew as mother had the right to live. We have never spoken to each other ever since the funeral and I'm not sure if she's still alive.

My life began when I was nineteen and met my current wife Carole (Caz). We were married in 1975 and had a child named Shawn. Unfortunately he was born with a hole in his heart and died at the tender age of four months we were both totally devastated but luckily she caught on again very early and gave birth to another son called Tommie in 1977.

We both worked hard and after doing without luxuries for a long time we finally saved enough money to buy our council house. We stayed there for three years before we were able to sell it. We had decided a long time ago that we would live abroad and decided on Greece. After asking Tommie at the age of fifteen if he would like to move to Rhodes he jumped at the chance. We are a very close family and Tommie has all his good manners without me having to raise a finger on him. We lived in Rhodes for five years when Tommie suggested we get an Internet bar, our money from the house sale was dwindling quickly and we decided to go for it.

All was going well, money was coming in, instead of out and we started to save again. The weather over here is glorious in the summer without a cloud in the sky for months.

All went well for the next ten years. We had a house designed and built with a big garden for my new grandsons, Sean and Benjamin (Tommie married an Irish girl called Helen)

Then it all started to go wrong I seemed to get tired easily and had heartburn a lot when I ate. I asked my sister to fetch over some Gaviscon from England (There are still a lot of things you can't get over here). I took these on a regular basis for a couple of months and it seemed to ease the pain in my chest until November 2006. I awoke with the same feeling of indigestion so got dressed and went for a long walk. When I got back home I told Caz that I still felt like I wanted a big 'burp'. I jumped up and down and touched my toes a few times and then 'wow' my chest tightened so much. I told Caz I think I'm having a heart attack. She said don't be silly your right arm hurts and no sooner had she said it I got a pain in my hand. (Don't forget I'm not religious so why were the first words out of my mouth, 'Jesus Christ') After running around like a headless chicken thinking I am going to drop dead any moment we went to our local GP. Thankfully it was close by and went straight through his surgery into the doctors office and ignoring his patient he was dealing with went and lay on his bed. He knew immediately what was wrong with me and put a couple of tablets under my tongue. Which after a couple of moments eased the pain, he asked if my son drove when I said yes. He asked Caz to phone him up and to come and take me to the hospital, which of course he did. On our way we were saying I couldn't have had a heart attack or he would have got an ambulance for me. When we arrived at the Hospital (in the town centre about a twenty-minute drive away). I went into the accident and emergency department and within no time at all they had me connected to a E.C.G machine and started to take blood when I had my second heart attack which was much stronger than the first one. They trollied me to the intensive care unit with my son and wife in tow. I was crying and thought they would never see me again when I went inside. After what seemed ages (probably ten minutes) they had got me settled and said they didn't want me to have visitors but because they were so upset they allowed Caz and Tommie to see me for a minute. The relief I had to see them again was short lived when I asked my son to lift the bed higher so I could see them properly. 'Bang'. At this point I would like to say I am no coward to pain. I once had ingrowing toenails that were giving me gyp for several months so I nicked my big toenails on either side with clippers to form a wick. I then gritted my teeth took the pliers and yanked the nail out on both sides but after the bleeding stopped they were cured. I added this for you to understand that third attack was ten times more painful. Everyone was ushered out of the intensive care unit and I was told later that my heart had stopped for seven seconds. I remember asking if I was going to die and the doctor told me that if I hadn't been where I was I would have. Now I know why my local GP told me to take me by car it saved twenty minutes, which would have meant I would not be here typing my experiences down for you to read. I made a mental note to thank my GP for saving my life the next time I saw him.

Lying in my ward recouping from my experience and waiting to go to Athens for an operation. I noticed a little humming noise in my head. It wasn't loud and was easy to ignore it, so I let it go without saying anything to the doctors. After ten days I was flown to Athens for an angiograph which revealed I had a blocked artery and a stent was fitted.

After coming back home just over two years ago I have had no problems with my heart so far. And on the tread mill all seemed fine. Although there is a downside, I have to take medication for the rest of my life. I have never been one for taking pills. I hit fifty years of age in October 2006 and by December 2006 I had recovered from three heart attacks and I felt fine except for the annoying hum had turned into a buzzing noise. Over the months it got louder and louder. I asked my doctor if there were any side effects with the tablets I was taking that could cause a buzzing noise in my head. He replied 'no'. I was dumbstruck because it only started when I came around in the ward and was sure it was a trivial matter of just adjusting the medication. Now I was worried what it could be, I asked my local GP what could be wrong with me. I described it was like standing underneath an electric pylon and the sound it gives out is the sort of frequency as what was in my head. He told me it could be Tinnitus, which I immediately looked up on the Internet. I discovered that it was a problem with the ears that can be caused by a severe trauma. Only my noise was in my head not my ears. The only way I can explain this is if the problem is in both ears then it's like when you put good music and headphones on you hear the music in the middle. Everything I read was very interesting. Buzzzzz. Try and put yourself in My Buzzzzzz place and imagine that there is no Buzzzzzz cure for this Buzzzzz annoying noise. I Buzzzzzz went to Buzzzzz a ear specialist and Buzzzzz had my ears syringed. It did no-Buzzzzz-thing to stop the buzzing sound. Buzzzzzzzz now that you have got irritated of all the Buzzes I have put in these last few lines, imagine. You can put this down and walk away. I unfortunately can't walk away from it. I scale it from a one to a ten. One being very low and ten unbearable. I'm typing at the moment at about a six. It does go as low as a four but very rarely less. When I am tired or fatigued it does go up to an eight or nine. I had it on a ten for about three days on a trot and I went to a neurologist. I broke down and cried for help to get rid of this noise that had by this time got very frustrating. He told me that antidepressants sometimes works in lowering the noise but I had to take them for six months for them to be effective that was three months ago and all the tablets have done for me is to make me feel constantly lethargic and tired. The buzzing has not lowered in the least. They say that suicide is a coward's way out. That can never be so far from the truth. I have two grandsons, a daughter, son and wife I dearly love, but I don't know how long I can live with this constant noise that's starting to send me crazy. 'NO CURE' In this day and age when almost the impossible can be done medical wise and they can't cure a little noise in the ears? I know I'm not the only one out there with this problem but I feel so lonely not being able to explain the frustrating condition to a total stranger that sees you look ok from the outside and doesn't understand the torture I am going through. I don't know how long I can put this act on without screaming aloud to the world STOP this buzzzzzing.

I don't think I have done anything wrong to deserve this torture so you try to put blame on anyone and anything. When it's bad the words that come to mind is 'good God please stop this torment' Just for ten minutes of peace and quiet. It's got so bad it wakes me up from my sleep at night. It can only be a curse of the Gods. If there is anyone out there that can genuinely help me please get in contact through my e-mail. Before I pluck up enough courage to end the Buzzzzzing noise for good. Thanks for reading this. Tom@tommiesbar.com"

I emailed you but got no response, so I don't know if that address link is still active. So I am posting the info that I came across that might benefit you & other Tinnitus sufferers. The bottom line is that Dr. Shemesh studies the "Metabolic Imbalance" in each individual rather than give a "one pill fits all" treatment.

It's worth researching his methods for those of us that cannot afford to travel to Israel for a cure. Here are some links to start you on your research path.

I did see some info suggesting that Vitamin B-12 deficiency might be the culprit. So please, do your homework & see your doctor about deficiencies......"Metabolic Imbalance".

I hope this helps."

06/16/2009: Catlin from Austin, TX replies: "Hi Tom - My tinnitus is so linked to what I am taking into my body, it is uncanny. A Neanderthal diet of limited meat, berries, and veggies will make it go completely away. I thank my husband for this because he thoroughly researched ways to help me; even did most of the cooking. I am allergic to EVERYTHING and tinnitus can be a direct result of allergies to food or medication. I stopped taking over-the-counter meds some years ago so I realized my diet was the culprit. I did find relief with a diluted borax (1T) and water (8oz-no lumps) solution sprayed into the ear and drained out. But this is only temporary. A permanent solution was getting rid of the allergies I have always had since I was fed grains, milk, and beans to early on an immature baby gut. The moms of the 50s didn't believe in breastfeeding. Tinnitus, stomach problems, frozen shoulder, teeth problems, and more, all disappeared when I went Neanderthal I initially lost 20 (hubby-30) pounds without even exercising. And my energy is way better. You are not finished here, so don't give up. Your answer is out there. CAT"

I don't believe there are many conditions that will not improve with this regiment. It might not completely cure everything, but any improvement is worth the effort, besides the fact that it would improve health in many more ways than eliminate the "buzzing"."

I did some research and tried taking herbs from the health food store, nothing worked. My ears started ringing longer than usual and going deaf for a couple seconds in one ear. It was scaring me and beeps. I was so afraid I would wake up deaf one morning. During my research I read on Dr. Mercola's site that just putting 3% hydrogen peroxide in each ear for 10 minutes each will clear ears of colds and flu. I decided to try it. I put 1/4 capful of 3% hydrogen peroxide into one ear and kept it in there for 10 minutes and then the other ear. In the morning, the beeps were gone. I did it again for another 2 nights. Since then my tinnitus has completely disappeared. You might need 1/2 a capful if your ear canal is bigger haha. Just make sure your ears are full of the peroxide for 10 minutes each. Good luck!"

Both ear canals, all of the sinuses,jaw and lungs are infected. All the lymph nodes are swollen and hard. The area under my left ear and the left side of my neck are swollen. Can't take an antacid with the meds. After the third pill I started realizing my heart felt like someone was shaking it. One of the side effects of the med was rapid heart rate. So, I went back to the doc. They did an EKG and nothing was happening. Heart was fine. They changed the meds. The left ear still has fluid in it, the neck is still swollen and the right side of my neck is swollen. I was away from that central unit so the heart rate leveled out. I think the harmonic balancer is going out or is out. I am ultra sensitive to the high, high frequency of the fan. I have no idea of what to do. I've put everything I can think of on the windows, but, the sound is still coming in. If I understood you correctly, my whole body could be acting like a receiver due to heavy metals. I will get the magnesium tomorrow. I will try the soda and H202 too. What concerns me is the damage that the frequency could be doing to my ear drums. What is the process in detoxing heavy metals Do I need to go to a specialist? I also need to have a tooth removed that is infected. It has a mercury filling. Do I need a special dentist?"

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "Drinking strong green tea without sugar and no milk throughout the day appears to be a more reasonable course of action in chelating free metal iron, lead and cadmium.

Plus eating SOME chinese parsley but not too much will slowly remove the heavy metals, taken every two days. The amount is about 1-2 teaspoon chopped of chinese parsley leaves. Drinking plenty of water is important.

In the meantime, 250 mg of EDTA dissolved in 1 liter of water can also help.

Getting urine pH to 7 is the key. Taking one tablespoon of granulated lecithin will help ease the body of the overload.

If I am desperate, and the infection is really bad, as you mentioned here the single most effective remedy I can think of that is close to a miracle is the 300-500 mg of BHT supplements. Taken only 3 days in a row will nearly wipe up nearly all the infections I have seen. I refrain from this remedy only as a last resort, for a couple of reason, one being it's hard to find, the second is most people do not accept BHT use, even though rat studies prove that BHT resulted in lengthening of lifespan and amazing antioxidants against ear and sinus infection. As usual, I found this quite by accident while doing experiments to find a cure of the bird flu and herpes virus which does a great job there too."

He mentions that it's hard to find BHT, which is something I'm going to try if the natural remedies don't work - well, I found this site selling it for less than 4 bucks.

I swear, I have no affiliation with the site -- Just thought it would be helpful for people looking for it.

02/08/2011: Oscar from Syracuse, New York, U.s.a. replies: "BHT, butylated hydroxytoluene is EASY to buy. It is inexpensive, about $10 to $12 for a bottle of one hundred 350mg capsules and available at many online supplements suppliers. BHT got a bad rap back in the 1970s and 1980s because it was thought to be an unnatural compound. That has been proven to be untrue. BHT occurs naturally in at least some phytoplankton which I find worth noting because phytoplankton are exposed to so much harmful UV rays. Perhaps BHT and related compounds is how phytoplankton cope with such rays. Such rays produce free radicals and phytoplankton have only a very thin membrane which gives them little if any protection from these damaging UV rays.

Dr. Denham Harman has a lot to say about BHT. He is the originator of the free radical damage concept of aging. He did extensive tests showing that mice dosed with BHT lived up to 50% longer than undosed mice. A doctor Lippman has done similar expeiments with similar results. There is something very important as to health and longevity and it, BHT, does not get the attention it deserves. At that is extreme understatement in my opinion....Oscar"

The place that I read about this protocol claims you should take about 3000 grams (?) of chlorella half an hour before you eat the cilantro with hot water. I guess the chlorella detoxes the metals from your body that cilantro detoxes out of your brain. Anyone interested in where I found this let me know. Great site!!"
10/30/2011: Chris from Sydney, Australia replies: "Hi Deb, I would love to read up on the site you mention. Been thinking of doing a detox and actually heard a little that its important to use cilantro before the chlorella because of the mercury moving to other vital organs which the cilantro aids, thanks Deb."
10/30/2011: Deb from Wloo, Ia replies: "Hi Chris, I had the site bookmarked but lost it! I'm sorry I really liked the site!! I do take it before but you are supposed to take it when you take cilantro. (sometime anyway! ) :)"
10/30/2011: Deb from Wloo, Ia replies: "I forgot to mention that you can buy cilantro extract and apply it to your ankles and wrists to detox. Need to find that site. :)"

[YEA]  08/18/2007: JoAnne : "Just wanted to let you know that I started the H202, treatments tonight. I have been told that I have COPD. I have so many medicines around the house it is depressing. But this is about my ears. Since March I have been dealing with a hyper sensitivity to sound, smells etc. This manifested itself in the form of my entire body vibrating in response to noise. After days of the vibrating for 24 hrs a day for 6 days I was on the edge of sanity. I thought I was reacting to an external source, like a generator or something like that. I met with some friends and I was telling them about what was happening. One of them asked if I might have an inner ear infection. WOW, I never would have guess that. As it turns out, I do have an infection in the left ear canal. I was trying to find something on vibrating when I saw something on HP. I went to your site and read most of the responses. I was in such bad shape and I couldn't get in to see the doctor and no money for an emergency room visit, so, I decided to "go for it".

First I created a bowl of water, mixed 3%, over the counter peroxide in, then I used the cap to pour it up my nose. It burned since I didn't have distilled water at that time. Using the distilled water won't sting. Within 5 mins. the vibrations had stopped. I was able to breathe through my left nostril for the first time in months. Then I pored some in my left ear. I experienced vertigo, never had that before. But, it did tell me I was dealing with an ear infection. The vibrations stopped. It has been 24 hrs since I started the treatments. When the vibrating starts, I know it's time for another dose.

I also created the spray for my throat and added some to my water. It is amazing how much clearer my airways are. I can also see a very small improvement in my vision. I've been told that I need cataract surgery. Hopefully all of this will help that clear up some too. And! I have had a huge reduction in my desire for a cigarette. I've smoked 15 cigs. today, whereas I normally smoke 2 packs. I just haven't wanted one. Amazing. I believe the infection is coming from a tooth, so I've also started rising my mouth with HP. At least it is giving me some relief until I can get to the doctor. I will continue use and I will keep you posted. I'm also passing your web address to family and friends. Hopefully they will check you out. Thank you so much for your site and I am so grateful for all the people who have taken the time to share the experiences."

09/24/2007: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "If H2O2 is used in the sinus area the solution should always be kept at a low concentration such as 1% or below in being the safest, if it is for some reason put into the nose. Most people seem to make a mistake of using 3% which is dangerous and causes nosebleed and this is something that must be avoided. A tiny amount of sea salt added so it tastes like your tear drop also reduce the irritation. It is strange that distilled water is used because those are the most irritating when added with H2O2, perhaps the concentration of H2O2 is too high. An ear infection leads to vibration sensitivity, but a noise sensitivity is due to both acidosis and high heavy metals, which are also conductive of the sound and sensitivity. I had a couple of cases of a person who simply can't sleep because of ringing of the ears and sound sensitivity, which turns out both of those condition were completely cured when taking 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in 3-6 drops of H2O2 in one glass of water, plus 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 glass of water before sleep. Ringing of the ears and sensitivity to sound is due to lack of magnesium, and hence 250 mg of magnesium 5 days out of a week helps. TO discourage further ear infection some vitamin E and vitamin C also helps, in ways most people don't expect, since ear infection is due to fungus and vitamin C has a limited antifungal properties, but I prefer the sodium ascorbate one, while vitamin E is an antioxidant and helps with the circulation, which helps the blood detoxify the infection better."
04/21/2009: Ben from Louisville, Kentucky replies: "I sure could use your help. My husband has been suffering for months he now has Hyperacusis (Hyper hearing) and Tinnitus(ringing in the ears). It all started with an ear infection .From what I have read he could have an overgrowth of yeast that has attributed? If so what can we do? What exactly is h202 is it just regular peroxide? I have been told his alkanity is high."

Infection

12/21/2010: Masii from London, Uk: "Dear jane hi,
If you have any problem with titinus, maybe you should also check with your dentist to have a good check up, as it was in my case. Sometimes there is an infection that we don't know about and that causes giddiness and other related problems with balance. Hope this helps and much love,
Masii."

[YEA]  03/27/2012: Fastone from Chehalis, Wa: "I have had Tinnitus for years Man I hate it has driven me crazy. I found a web page that said it was caused by a fungus in the ear. I was trying to treat it internally with little success. This girl said to try iodine diluted with pure water. I had some kelp iodine and tried it. Man what a relief it killed the noise by 90% in 24 hours with no hearing loss. So one drop of kelp iodine in a tea spoon of pure water. Use an eyedropper in the ear canal. Fastone"

03/28/2012: Linda from York County, Southern Maine replies: "Hi Fastone.... I wonder if any other type of iodine would be as beneficial? I have some Povidone.... Just Googled kelp iodine to no avail.... tinnitus makes me a little crazy; I've had it for years, too, and would welcome some relief...."
03/29/2012: Helpyourself from Houston, Texas replies: "I purchased Kelp iodine at Whole Foods in Houston."
03/29/2012: Jenny from Sydney, Australia replies: "Hi I also suffer from tinnitus. Did you only use the iodine once and was it instant or over some time? I have 2. 5% lugols iodine and wonder if it might work similarly. The Fungus sounds right as my health practitioner is currently treating me for it. Great to hear the iodine helped you. Thanks Jenny"
03/29/2012: Linda from York County, Southern Maine replies: "Thanks Helpyourself..... I will check the local natural supply store since the nearest Whole Foods is about 45 miles from where I live (I'll make that trip Plan B! ).

Jenny, it sounds like Fastone just administered the mixture once! Almost sounds too good to be true but I'm sure hoping my interpretation is the right one!

.....here's wishing us all the best results from our efforts, Linda"

[NAY]  03/31/2012: Mmsg from Somewhere, Europe replies: "NAY!! I put a drop or two of very diluted lugol's in my ear and a moment later it started to HURT!! I stuck it out hoping it was doing something positive, but the pain got stronger and I washed out my ear with warm water. It didn't help. I then put a piece of cotton with a drop of olive oil on it in my ear and lay down with the painful ear on the pillow. It took a while but the pain subsided. So I do NOT recommend this treatment. And my tinnitus is the same."

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  02/27/2013: Vikki from Solihull, Uk replies: "I too have suffered with tinnitus since developing Ulcerative Colitis (IBD) over 12yrs ago. I suddenly realised a few yrs back that when my anaemia is worse, so is the tinnitus & vice-versa.

I do have a white-noise maker but its quite uncomfortable to wear for 8hrs p/day (I have small ears lol).

I can't tolerate a lot of iron (had large bowel removed) so I take it in a multi-vit AM & take a 14mg ferrous sulphate or 2 straight after my evening meal. This keeps it quieter."

[SIDE EFFECTS]  01/05/2011: Anne from Chicago, Il Usa: "I had arrythmia issues last year and was put on a beta blocker (25 mg Toprol)... Have taken it for about a year. I have tinnitus (ringing in the ears) for the past 2-3 months that is driving me crazy. Online searching for tinnitus causes led me to find that some people have developed it AFTER taking beta blockers, and that it may never go away. Has anyone successfully stopped beta blockers and lost their tinnitus?"

Low Blood Pressure

06/04/2011: Umm from Madina, Saudi Arabia: "I have had tinnitus for 4 years, Around a year ago, I notice I feel extremely weak and jittery after eating, especially if I've stayed many hours without food (I was fasting to lose weight). I also feel like this sometimes not after eating, but not as bad as after a meal. I thought it was low blood sugar and took the glucose tests that is done before and after eating, I was told I did not not have diabetes. I was relieved and thankful about that news but still worried about what could be the cause of my bouts of tiredness. I then found out I was anaemic and was taking iron supplements and eating iron rich foods, but it did not help my condition.

Last month, I was at the doctors to get my monthly iron prescription and luckily, I just started feeling tired as I was called by the nurse to go see the doctor, my BG was checked again and it was fine, then my doctor told me my blood pressure was low, and that explained why I used to be tired half of the time. I now read on another site that high blood pressure medication can relief tinnitus??? I am really confused, I need someone to explain the correlation to me plsss. Could my tinnitus be due to low blood pressure? Any advice would be greatly appreciated."
