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 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.
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!
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.
Tinnitus: I have had ringing in my ears seems most of my adult life but lately I really notice it. I take mag citrate about 200mg (1/4) tsp in the a.m. and another in the evening the whole dose says a 1/2 tsp is 630 mg. So I split it. My ears still ring. I take sodium ascorbate every other day, black strap molasses every day, squeezed lemon w 1/4 tsp bsoda every morning, Borax 3 days out of the week. I don't take the h202 very often because I take the lemon juice every morning. Can I take the h202 with lemon juice? I read you shouldn't take h202 with acv. I was taking the sea salt in my water everyday.
Lately I noticed when I do take it I get these spells like I'm going to faint. I get really whoozy like I need to take a deep breath and I have to put my head down. That's really scary especially driving. Could the sea salt be too much for me as far as sodium? Just this week I started the fish oil. I feel energized all but the ringing in my ears.
I take milk of magnesia once a week to really clean me out and it does. I tested my urine ph and it was 7-7. 5. So my biggest concern is the dizzy spells, drinking the sea salt in which I have probably done for 2 years but the last month or so is when the dizzy spells started.
The ringing in my ears is driving me crazy. One time it stopped and it literally stopped me in my tracks I had to turn around to make sure I was still upright. It was something I havn't heard in a long long time. I take granulated lecithin in the morning and the evening dose I add 1/4 tsp of baking soda, I usually sleep like a rock. I noticed if I don't take it I toss and turn. I appreciate any imput from Bill or Ted. I have had earth clinic in my life now for over 2 years it's my go to site every morning, I have helped a lot of people at work bless you all for such a wonderful and helpful site amazing what one can do with natural remedies you might just have in your pantry:}
EC: Hi Lori,
Please read our Remedy Side Effects section to see if any of the remedies you are taking are causing dizzy spells: http://www.earthclinic.com/remedies/side_effects.html
Each remedy page (with the exception of apple cider vinegar, which has over 100 reported side effects on the page noted above) will also have a side effects section as well.
I need relief for ringing in the ear. I have been taking ginko biloba, cinnmon, ginger, b12 and nothing seems to help is there anything out there to take the noise out of my ear?

Hi, I wasn't sure where to post this, but just wanted to contribute my experience with treating tinnitus. Whenever my immune system needs a boost I have a series of remedies and supplements that I increase. In between times I relax the number of times I take these, but usually stick with ACV and honey as a drink, lemon and sodium bicarbonate just before cleaning my teeth and more recently, diatomaceous earth every day.
I would say my tinnitus is connected to a root canal filling I had years ago before I understood about the effect of these. Since then if my tinnitus starts up I've made the connection with 'disturbances' around that tooth. So I take oxygen, as a liquid supplement, and hold that in water, in my mouth for several seconds, a few times a day. I also take turmeric tincture a few times a day until it settles down again. It seems to help. Added to all of this I take Fo Ti tincture, which really helps my hair! But I think it is very good as an anti-inflammatory.
I hope that helps!
I inadvertently discovered this website earlier today, and as I was looking through the index of ailments, I saw the link to tinnitus and decided to post my experience because I know how scary and depressing this condition can be.Three years ago, in January 2010, I had a very bad cold (headache, coughing, sore throat, body aches), and developed tinnitus. My ears were 90% deaf, but I had RINGING THUNDER inside my head that never quit. Long after my cold symptoms were gone, the symptoms persisted.I spent many hours researching on line and tried quite a few possible remedies - warm oil treatments, hydrogen peroxide, ear candling, holding my nose and gently blowing (like when you scuba dive or fly in an airplane), and other holistic possibilities. But there was absolutely no improvement and I was concerned that I might be stuck with this condition for the rest of my life. Over a period of time, I got about 50-60% of my hearing back, but still had the non-stop RINGING THUNDER. Then one day in early June (easily six months after the onset of my condition), I was in the pool and something incredible happened. I don't normally go under water because if I have somewhere to go, it would take a long time to dry and fix my hair. But this particular day I had no plans and I needed to wash my hair anyway. So I lay back and let myself drift until I started slipping under the water. I went down about a foot or so, and to my complete surprise, I could feel activity in my ears as they slowly and gently begin to clear. I lay there under the surface for as long as I could, and when I came up, there was a definite and significant change in my condition. I repeated this submarine technique several times over the next few days and eventually my ears were totally back to normal after SIX MONTHS of suffering. Three weeks into my “healing” (July 2010), and there were no return of symptoms.I suppose all of this sounds a little wacky and there may be medical reasons why this doesn't make any sense. Even though I had all of the symptoms, maybe I didn't really have tinnitus at all. Maybe it was something else. Well, call it what you will, my ears weren't working properly.
So I'm posting this because maybe there are others with these same symptoms who also don't REALLY have tinnitus either. Or maybe they do, and I've discovered something worth trying.
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
For about 1 year, I hear my heart beat in my left ear. I think they call it pulsatile tinnitus. It was so annoying that at one time I was even hospitalised because of very high blood pressure 235/110.
I'm extremely panicky, sense heart beat on my chest, very fatigue even just talking a few words, constantly evaluating/thinking/worrying in my mind, weak hands and legs, high-pitched tinnitus in my left ear, fear of loud sounds, almost paranoid-like.
What is it?
How do I cure it?
Is it electrolyte imbalance?
Is it skeletal out of balance?
Is it lack of exercise?
Help, save me!!

I just tried the youtube rain sounds. It actually made my ear ringing sound worse.
I had an intuition and I wanted to help you I wanted to give you the answer why your hearing is occluded. If you think of your ear as an antenna and that it also has a speaker which is direct wired to your brain. You would probably agree that if it is to receive properly it must be tuned and adjusted. Your ear is receiving the signal because these is a misalignment in your neck and the cartilage of your earlobe.
I know this sounds odd but you can rid yourself of it with a few simple things. In reality they are a series of stretches and contractions. If you perform each one for 5 minutes or so a day it will go away quickly. After each crack do it a few more movements with tension on to realign the facet joint. In fact repeat that after each crack just cause you found it does mean you aligned it.
1. Remember when you stood at attention in the army? They made you tuck your chin in.. Do this as tight as you can until you hear a crack in the ear or the jaw with the ringing.
2. Do shoulder shrugs until you hear your mid neck crack.
3. Firmly grasp the earlobe at the front and gently pull until you hear the crack..... Gently continue.
4. There are 5 prive points around the earlobe which are available for adjustment and alignment.
5. Turn your chin to the side and try to touch your chin stretch unit you hear the crack
6. Do both sides for the sake of spinal alignment for the flow of kundalini. After all the sound is misaligned energy reverberating in your ear drum! Lean your neck back a much as you can tolerate. The pull of the chin by smiling until you hear the crack.....
7. You can manipulate the shoulders to address your headaches mostly the right one.
8. Lye on your back... Lift your stiff legs up together like you are trying to touch your forehead but again you arrive at the range of motion limit which you will know by the crack the stretch a bit more.
9. Squeeze 3 to 5 drops of juice from a white onion into the ear cannel let it rest 10 to 15 minutes in the canal.
10. Take a soft piece of cotton and with a cork screw motion work it into the ear cannel. After you have drained the canal. As you twist it out there will be a small amount of black particles.... Your sign that you have clear the film of sludge.... Repeat in your spare time and it will dissipate in a short period of time. If you want to be lazy you need to find an osteopath he stretches the muscle which aligns the joint (maybe therapeutic massage with gentle head manipulation........ Not a chiropracter he forces the joint... I was also told that I should say if we tune the antenna we tune the brain... , having a direct path to the brain lets us cleanly process the signal we resonate in harmony and frequency with.
To all tinnitus sufferer, please try sound therapy, for sure it will work for us.... :-) Search Sound therapy International...
So here is a crazy idea. I don't know if it will really work and it would be nice if more people try this. But for my rinnging ear, I have put the spiraly sea shell on the ear, and it seems like it helped. They say sound therapy works well, so I thought of the shell. And also shell has the same spiral like your ear. Maybe it has something to do with it too. Don't know. I wonder how others respond to it
