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.
I have ringing in my ears (tinnitus). Would the Mini Beet Protocol cure this? It's supposed to re-build the DNA.

I started noticing tinnitus after playing in a loud rock band for about a year. I may have had it before but never knew the term or it even existed. Cut to the chase, I tried a whole bunch of supplements & couldn't really tell if they were helping or not. Perhaps the bioflavonoids, niacin (with flush), or the NAC (these are some of the best supplements I've concluded) do help some.. still uncertain but it can't really hurt to experiment with since they have additional benefits. What helped me the most was Julian Cowan Hill's videos. Just google him & check him out on YouTube. So my onset was about 8 months ago. Since then, I've been very careful not to aggravate my ears too much more so they can heal properly. I had to quit my band which made the most sense to me, I carry ear plugs in my car if I need to get them and I'm not afraid to walk out of anywhere that's too loud for me. I had a few times in religious (church)/spiritual environments (singing bowls) where it was too loud and I stayed and had a full relapse for like a week or 2.
So my advice again is to listen to Julian's videos (he's the man), and stay away from further damage. With music now I just play at a lower volume and have given up playing with a drummer at least for now. Hand percussion is where it's at anyway. I also had some custom ear plugs made for about $200. If yours is really bad after a few months, look into getting a hearing aid that plays sounds that cancel out the tone of your tinnitus. There's also a few great phone apps out there like ‘Resound' where you can dial in a sound close to the the tone of your tinnitus with white/pink noise, water, wind sounds, etc., so it's not as distracting especially to go to sleep to. A simple $20 large 3 speed window fan is a great buffer too fyi. Stay positive & try your best to just forget about it, it definitely fades in time. Peace ✌🏼
I have been a Tinitis sufferer for a few years now and only realized that is what I had after researching here. I had only heard of the ringing symptom and the loud noise cause. I have a a very unnerving vibration that feels like it is going through the base of my skull and I am pretty sure mine is caused from combination of too many prescription drugs. I was prescribed Topomax, Soma, and Klonopin at the same time. My left ear is already compromised from a lifetime of chronic ear infections and have had the ear drum blow out at least three times, so lots of damage and scar tissue. I do not believe there is a cure for it, however I have found you can relieve it temporarily with some of the "cures" on this site and I am here today to tell you one of my own I have stumbled upon. If you suffer from this you know how desperate one becomes. Simply sticking your finger in your ear helps and stuffing it with cotton can help to sleep, or laying on the side that is the worst if you have it in one ear like me. The biggest relief for me though that surprised me is tucking your head in towards your chest. Makes sense if you think of basic anatomy and where your eustacian tube is etc that this helps. Keep your back kind of straight as possible and tuck your chin in toward your chest and see what happens. I hope it gives some relief to someone else if only for a short time, and for some rest! Blessings to you all!
I have found helichrysum essential oil to greatly contribute to the reduction of tinnitus in as little as 3 days. The oil is massaged on the bone behind the ear. DO NOT put drops of the oil directly into the ear canal. A few drops can be put onto a cotton ball and placed in the ear overnight. There is an additional blend of other oils along with the helichrysum that I have not tried yet. So far the straight helichrysum is working wonders for me. A heads up...it's not cheap but a very little is working wonders so far.
I am reading an awesome book on women in this age range and tinnitus is often caused by hormone fluctuations associated with such. Try over the counter progesterone cream, USP bioidentical, NOT yam extract. Research a little on it. It makes a lot of things right again with women around general age of 30 and beyond.
Humming..relieves my tinnitus temporarily, reducing the high pitched noise. I put my index fingers in my ears and hum, the lower pitched hums helps me the most, very benefical at bedtime.
For years now during the winter, I experience tinnitus where I hear a low, pulsating, airy sound, like wind. I only hear it when it's really quiet, like at night. I have sinus congestion issues in winter, so I'm sure it's related. I tried the following and within a couple of hours, the condition resolved. I've done this 3 nights in a row to be sure it doesn't return.
Here's what I did: using a reputable drugstore brand hydrogen peroxide (never the $1 store! ), I soak a cotton ball thoroughly and, lying on my side, I squeeze enough in my ear to the point it feels full, like I'm underwater. I stay in this position for 5 minutes. Then get up, using a tissue to catch the draining peroxide. Then, I soak another cotton ball with rubbing alcohol. Lie on my side, drip in my ear, then immediately get up, using a tissue to catch it, and finally complete the drying gently with a Qtip (I know, not too deep). The alcohol helps displace the liquid and dries quickly so you don't have moisture staying in your ear.
I had a low level of tinnitus for decades, and complete hearing stoppage once about five years ago. HP cured the stoppage and I never wanted it to happen again so I started putting HP in my ears prophylactically about twice a week (it ALWAYS foams when I do it, that's how much wax my ears produce.) Anyway, I haven't had a stoppage again and the beneficial side effect is NO MORE TINNITUS!!!
Last year in April I started having a thumping sound like my heart beat in my right ear while lying in bed at night. It was driving me nuts and I could not sleep. I read on this site that hydrogen peroxide may help stop the noise.
I had my husband with a dropper, drop one drop of food grade hydrogen peroxide 3% in my right ear. After the fizzing stopped everything was quiet. I was so grateful! The noise came back the two following nights and I reapplied the 1 drop of hydrogen peroxide and after that I had peace for 1 year.
Last night, April, I was really stressed over something and could not sleep and the thumping sound returned.
Once again the 1 drop of hydrogen peroxide stopped the noise and I fell asleep. I was so grateful. I recently had my ears cleaned so, I will need to investigate why in April I have this problem.
My brother-in-law had ringing in his ears but, this did not help him. By the way, his ringing in his ears left his ears on its own a month later.
I began to notice sounds seemed louder that usual. This is called hyperacusis. I knew there must be a natural cure for this. I saw 5 ENT doctors no signs of ear infection, or sinus problems. I was tested for everything imaginable everything was negative. One doctor thought maybe it was migraine, but my head did not hurt. I took matters into my own hand I started taking 15 drops of Grapefruit seed extract three times a day and 1 tsp colloidal silver 3 times a day. Stop all gluten, sugar and dairy. Also took high quality probiotics
I kept hearing sounds louder than usual then I decided to clean my ears our with few drops of of food grade hydrogen peroxide . I laid down on the bed with a towel I would turn my head and put in the hydrogen peroxide and let it bubble then let the hydrogen peroxide drain out by turning my head on side . I was CAREFUL to keep the towel over my face and keep my eyes closed I did the other ear and that seemed to have solved the problem. First time, I did this I was scared and felt a little dizzy afterwards so I used a hair dryer turned it on low and pointed toward my ear to dry the remaining hydrogen peroxide and this was the FIRST day that hearing things louder than usual stopped I was cured I kept doing this for few more days, to be on the safe side
A couple months ago I had a bout with tinnitus. All I heard was beeping sounds upon waking up in the morning. It was bothersome and scary. 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!
Fantastic, I took the soda, H202 and water. By the second swallow I felt it easing up. It has now totally stopped. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. I was ready to call 911. No ear piercing sound or heart shaking. Going to bed now. Maybe I'll rest better. Thank you again
Ted, thank you for your response. It was 2 days before I could get into see the doctor and that was on a Saturday. I had them give me a shot and an antibiotic. 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?
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.
