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?

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.

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.

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.

You can drink Hydrogen peroxide? Even in tiny amounts, I thought it was not supposed to be ingested. I have been suffering with tinnitus with "ear fullness" and "head fullness" sensation, and a slight hyper sensitivity to noise, for over a year. It began after I had gone one full year with no menstrual cycle, thought I had started menopause, but then no - I got one period, then another one, and it was right at the start of this first period after one year without them that the tinnitus began. Because of this I believe mine is due to menopausal hormone imbalance.

I also wonder now if it related to heavy metal build up, although I don't think I have the typical symptoms of that except I drink well water, which has a lot of iron in it (the water is safe to drink, has been tested, but it has a slight "iron" color and chalky taste. So now I wonder if I have too much iron from my well water. But the main ear-hearing problem seems to be related o hormone imbalance. I have been trying to get relief from many things, nothing works, and I am trying two OTC hormone creams (Progesterone and Estriol), both of which contain only very small doses of hormones, so might not make any difference at all. My doctor is no help at all. I would like to try this remedy here with the water, baking soda, and hydrogen peroxide, but I want to be sure it is safe to drink. Thank you for any advice.

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

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.

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.

Re Tinnitus, it could be caused from circulation going to inner ear. It can be caused from stress, raising blood pressure, as well as other causes.

I had a stressful job that I believe contributed to "ringing in the ear", I wound up leaving the job but also taking a lecithin capsule either after lunch or after supper-the 1200mg dosage. This worked for me, I'm talking a couple of days! I find that Vit E (400) added can also help, my ear canals feel cleared out instead of perhaps stopped up.

My blood pressure is on the low side right under average, my cholesterol runs at 200 (last time had that checked). If lecithin helps break down cholesterol, this should help circulation.

I showed a coworker some lecithin capsules-I believe they were 800mg/per liquid-cap at the big blue retailer, for right at $8 a bottle. He is very young-18 or so, was mentioning ringing in the ears. We live in a humid area where many people have sinus problems, ear clogs, kids need tubes in their ears, etc.

I showed him the bottle of lecithin, told him to try two at night after supper or one after lunch, one after supper the first few days. Two days later I'd seen him, he was surprised yet told me "hey that stuff works! " I told him you can back off to one tab a day, explained to him if he eats fatty foods, cheeses, meats, etc, that his diet might have something to do with this, get more fruit, greens etc. on his menu. So he was surprised but happy.

I've read that earwax is a byproduct/contains cholesterol, so if it is 'dry, like small dry tiny blocks' instead of 'waxy or oily', it can stop up the ear canal instead of naturally pushing through to the outside of your ear. Makes sense to me.

The Lipoflavanoid tabs that have a red package run $22+, in my opinion the effective ingredient is lecithin.

On another note, I just did my first oil pull earlier, did with sesame oil, added a little oregano to my bottle, shook it up will let it settle. It is allot more palatable than I thought it would be, did this for right at 18 minutes. I did brush before with a little dissolved salt/baking soda in warm water, rinsing after. I repeated the same rinse after the OP, but then brushed with the dissolved salt & baking soda/warm water after, rinsing again. So far, so good!

Interesting website, thank you! ko57

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?

I tried the massage and it did pop my left ear and the noise stopped. I didn' think that it was going to work on my right ear, but I massaged from my ear to my chin where I remembered my lymph nodes swelling when I was sick. It stopped the ringing, but I didn't hear the pop. My hearing was better in my left ear, but it was never as bad as my right ear which I sleep on at night. I can't believe it. I will keep doing this. I already had garlic oil on my ears and was reading the website. I have been cleaning my ears with hydrogen peroxide inserted with a needleless syringe for at least a year and my hearing has vastly improved. I clean with hydrogen peroxide about once a week. I was really impressed with the massage. My left ear feels cleared but not my right ear. The ringing stopped in both ears, but my ringing wasn't very bad or all that bothersome. It was however amazing and the ringing is gone. I will definately keep doing this. I am going to start massage on all my lymph nodes sites on my body.

I took a lymphatic cleanser for tinnitus and it takes a while to work. i use it just to clear the tinnitus but it is back again. when i saw lymphatic drainage massage, it reminded me of taking the lymphatic cleanser. i take the cleanser 1-2 drops 1-3 times daily.

I tried the lymphatic drainage massage for tinnitus. It was absolutely amazing. It took less than 3 minutes on the side that had the tinnitus, and it totally faded out and didn't return. I think I had a bit of earwax buildup causing it. Thank you for posting about it. I intend to try it with any time I start to feel sick.

Three fingers for tinnitus, vertigo and allergies

"There is a very simple technique you can use on yourself that can quickly relieve tinnitus, vertigo (dizziness) and, in may cases, allergy symptoms.

"The key to the technique lies in your anatomy. Your armpit appears hollow when you lift your arm because there is a front muscle (Pectoralis Major) and a back muscle (Teres Major) forming the borders of the armpit. This front muscle holds a collection of lymphatic drainage points for the entire upper side of the body.

"Lets say that you have tinnitus in your right ear. Take your left hand, reach across your chest and curl your first three fingers around the right front armpit muscle. Your index finger should be snug against the inner arm. Press in very lightly and hold. Soon you'll begin to feel a faint pulse in your index finger. As the fluid begins to drain, you'll feel the pulse in all three fingers as the flow increases. Lightly press the tips of your middle and ring fingers into center of armpit. You'll feel more pulses.

"The first thing you'll notice is that your left nostril starts to clear and it frequently "pops open." Sinus pressure is relieved. With ear congestion, you'll feel or hear bubbling or crackling in your right ear. Continue on. As the swelling drains from in and around your ear, the tinnitus stops, the vertigo lifts, and the pain and pressure clears. Your ear "pops," sometimes for the first time in years. If you keep going, it will feel like the right side of your face is deflating... and it is. Now do the other side. Take a deep breath through your nose. How are your allergies?

"If you've had swelling in your right hand, that's gone too. Notice how easily you can remove your rings after you're done. If you had upper back pain, how's that now? It drains the lungs too. How's your asthma?

"Precautions: In pressing these points you are draining accumulated lymphatic fluid from around the cells and returning it to your venous circulation. With many people, this fluid has been stagnant and accumulating for years. In other words, you are draining murky swamp water. While draining your fluid, you may detect funny smells or funny chemical tastes briefly as these toxins drain out. If too much of this swamp water gets into your circulation too fast, it may trigger a healing crisis by overloading your system. If you try this in little bite-sized sessions, you can prevent an overload.

"The lymphatic circulatory system plays a big role in your immune system. Normally the fluid slowly flows through the lymphatic glands which filter the fluid before passing it on. If the fluid contains bacteria, cancer cells, or any other bad things for your immune system to address, it happens in these glands. This drainage technique opens those glands and lets everything flow through. Which means that if you have an infection or a cancer... don't do this.

"Be patient. Sometimes if you're really clogged up, it may take a while to get going. Also, it's best to do this at home... and not at bedtime. Your kidneys will be very busy afterward and having a nearby bathroom is a must!"

"How many times and for how long do you have to do this treatment? Are there other treatments like this?"

"It may take a few minutes to get the flow going. Once the drainage starts, you continue until you have improvement. It usually takes less than 10 minutes on each side to clear allergies. Since tinnitus and vertigo are usually one-sided, it's less than ten minutes until you get relief.

THIS TOTALLY WORKS!!!

I have had tinnitus for at least 4 or 5 years. It usually wasn't too terrible, unless I had been to a concert that night, but enough to be distracting when I was trying to fall asleep. I worked at a health food store and tried a few different supplements & homeopathic remedies, but noticed little or no change.

I did this lymph massage a few days ago, and that very night had ZERO noises in my head! I don't know how long it will last, but geez, it's easy, painless, and free! It really did feel like Luis described; at first I felt a very faint pulse under one finger, which slowly got stronger until I felt it under all 3 fingers. Amazing! Thanks, Luis and earthclinic!

I never felt the pulse either. But, I just generally (and gently) massaged the area. You should be able to feel several lymph glands. My theory is that most people never even think about their lymph system, much less massaging under their arms. But, if you are a woman wearing a bra every day, that area suffers from impaired circulation. It would make sense then to move the area around and restore it.

I also believe the monks can help here. Look up the "5 Tibetan Rites of Rejuvenation." The first one involves spinning that helps move the lymph system. I know spinning isn't seemingly the thing one wants to do when the problem involves the ears. But there would seem to be a connection here with the semi-circular canals, balance and opening up our systems.

Best of luck, hope this helps someone.

Thank you sooooo much for posting this. I recently started suffering from Tinnitus and tried lottsa holistic methods and medicine. But none worked like lymphatic drainage did. The noise is not completely gone but I did see a huge improvement within first few minutes. I continued doing it for an extra hour and experienced some more relief. I identified more points where lymph node resides and am planning to continue massaging every day.

This is in conjuction to taking following suppliments-


  1. Aswagandha
  2. Zinc
  3. Magnesiusm
  4. Multivitamin
  5. fenugreek
  6. Resveratol
  7. Sub lingual B12
  8. taurine
  9. turmeric (ocassionally)
  10. seratonin (sometimes at night)
    I am planning to start taking gingko.. hope it helps.

Acoustic neuromoculation was exceptionally helpful for short term relief. I found a track on telegraph.Uk website and kept listening to it for hours. IT HELPS, but once you take your headphones off, the dreaded noise creeps in. Atleast it alleviate the pain a little and provides relief even for a short while.

Research is going on in germany for acoustic coordination reset and I can wait for them to come out with results.

Meanwhile I have an appointment next week for Sound Cure, not sure if this is a long term cure but even if it provides short term relief its a blessing.

btw, did anyone had luck with sesame oil? I bought organic one from banyan botanicals and had 5-6 drops in my ear erery day but it seems to increase the noise.

Not sure if I should try garlic oil..

Any thoughts?


Magnesium and Citric Acid  

Posted by Healthynuts (Illinois, US) on 08/02/2014

Have recently been dealing with bouts of tinnitus that seem to stem from citric acid and I am unsure as to why this has sprung up now??.. I'm assuming I have a deficiency. I felt that it was coming from my left ear, which I had read was a deficiency in manganese but at times I had felt it was my right eat so I took magnesium in the form of Calm, and I noticed the ringing started instantaneous upon consumption. So that would mean an intolerance to citric acid. But I am wondering if that is the issue and if there is a different underlying cause, possibly a mineral deficiency? I have read that it could be vitamin b-12 and zinc??

I thought I was crazy - it seemed that every time I took magnesium citrate, my tinnitus got worse - this did not happen with magnesium oxide.

So there may indeed be something to this. Everyone says mag cit is more bioavailable, but my lab test rbc levels are just as good when I take max oxide, so I will stick to that.

You may want to join the Magnesium Advocacy group on Facebook. The group owner is Morley Robbins and he has uncovered lots of interesting research on magnesium citrate and why it is NOT a good form of magnesium to take.

Essentially magnesium citrate is a magnesium molecule that has been attached to ascorbic acid-- a synthetic form of Vitamin C. This synthetic C has been found to disrupt the function of an enzyme called Ceruloplasmin, which has as an important job the regulation of iron and copper in the body.

In addition, Ascorbic Acid is known to disrupt the healthy gut or intestinal bacteria. It is recommended instead to use a whole food Vitamin C such as found in the Garden of Life Vitamin Code Raw C product or also in Innate Response Whole Food Vitamin C. There are other sources of whole food Vitamin C as well.

As for magnesium-- magnesium oxide is OK-- but, the two most recommended forms are magnesium malate and magnesium glycinate as they are more easily absorbed.

Magnesium is needed for over 3,700 different enzymatic functions in the body and a deficiency can cause a host of symptoms. It is easily lost through stress and is depleted in our soil so, supplementation is usually required.

I had a buzzing sound in my ear off and on for the last six months. I purchased a magnetic bracelet on e-bay and noticed that it got less and then went away after about one week. The magnetic bracelets are a couple of dollars so not a big investment. I wear mine all the time even in the shower. They are actually a very attractive piece of jewelry. I am curious to know if anyone else has a similar response.


Mullein Tincture  

Posted by Pinkrose (New York City) on 09/20/2013

Hi Everyone,

So happy to find this new website for me!

Here's my problem.... Quite a few... I have high blood pressure which goes through the roof because I have a phobia when taking blood pressure either in the doctor's office or even if I take it at home... Can't do it.... Also, thyroid issues which are under control and was having extreme anxiety due to circumstances.... Five or six weeks ago I developed a new issue which is Pulsatile Tinnitus as told to me by a Neurologist.... It goes off and on... My cardiologist suggested I try "Mullein Tincture".... 10 drops in the morning and 10 drops at night... I just took it for the first time tonight w/o a little water... Quite bitter... Didn't know I was supposed to add a little water... That being said, after about an hour or so I noticed no "whooshing sound" in my head... It's kind of positional when I get up or sit down, etc..... Now, I don't know if this Mullein tincture was the cause or not... I will wait several days to find out... But, I am praying it is... I have been so upset by this condition you have no idea! I can hardly think straight as it is so unsettling and the worst part is the Neurologist wanted me to get an MRI of the Brain and Neck in one of those claustrophobic machines! I have claustrophobia on top of everything and it is horrific to me... I may have to be sedated to do this test... I'm really frightened of the whole scenario....

So, now my question to everyone is.... Could the Mullein tincture be actually working?.... I have been reading about this tincture for tinnitus... Anyone have anymore information about this product?.... Thanks to all!

Dear Pinkrose, We have successfullly used Mullein for a number of things. So, I do think it could be working! Mullein is an anti-inflammatory, expectorant, nervine, and many other good things. I make an oil with mullein and garlic to use in the ears for ear infections and it works. I make a salve with mullein and lobelia herbs, eucalyptus and peppermint essential oils that stops wheezing and coughing in most cases. I use the same salve to treat mastitis in my dairy goats very effectively. It seems to get congestion moved out of the area you are working on.

Please do let us know what the outcome is for you!

I use a spray of 100% DMSO into the ear followed by a 1% cortisone cream swab. I take magnesium, B vitamins, Bioflavonoids, curcumin and a combination vitamin from "tru nature vitamins" which has gingko biloba and vinpocetine. The most important addtion is also pregenolone a steroid precursor that not only is the material form which other hormones are made but is well known to help heal the brain and has been tested in the past to improve brain function and reduce inflammation. 50-150 mgs per day available over the counter in the USA. My tinnitus was caused by a serious flu virus complicated by a swim and a sauna which allowed the flu to invade the ear ducts. The tinnitus that resulted was severe. Now five weeks later one ear is silent and the other is 75% improved. I hope this helps someone.
