Haven't seen any new posts on EC about Tinnitus, but it's too bad because I am still searching for an answer/fix after 4 going on 5 years of this insidious condition. A silent place, like being home alone, is my worst enemy. I have tried so many things I've seen on EC, but never found anything that touched mine. When I am out and about, especially driving, I don't notice my "T" (I'll call it). At home, I have my app on my phone running (Chrome Doze or Whist tinnitus if mine gets high-pitched). All night I have to have it til I fall asleep, but the Chrome Doze doesn't use hardly any battery so I just let it run. I live in a strange place that has this little app running pretty much, 24/7, especially since I retired, and don't go much, plus, the covid stay-at-home. Well, the best reply imo, that I read here was from 2012 about the Essiac tea. I may try it but haven't a clue which to buy on Amazon. I have a drawer full of supplements that didn't work for me. I do NOT believe mine has much to do with my ears. Other than they hear this sound coming from my brain ;( I get sad when I read these forums about tinnitus and rarely do read them. It's better for me to accept it, that I'll never enjoy the sound of silence again. I hear even people that lose their hearing still have the ringing. I don't even bring it up anymore to my doctors because they have no answers for me. I live a healthy, active lifestyle (exercise, lots of whole foods, lots of water). I find huge relief from allergies doing saltwater irrigation, and ACV every day, twice a day in worst times of the year. I have found wonderful relief from other ailments here so I think there is a lot to Ted's fixes, as well as the many, wonderful, people that share their stories. I wish they'd come back because I am lonely for the company of people that suffer with some of the same things I do. There is not regular gathering of people with health issues. This has the best database, only wish it was more like a regular forum. But at least the info is here to read.
Thanks many thanks, to everyone who is still around, as well as those that have moved on. Denise

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: https://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?

I started taking ground flaxseed and psyllium husks 1-1 tsp mix together and mix in warm milk drink it quickly b/4 go to bed at night glucosmine capsule 2 a day 1 in the morning 1 at night. i noticed my ears are not noisy any more. I had this problem for 10-12 years.
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.
I have leukemia and is in remission. I had to have two bone marrow transplants. I've always had tinnitus my frequency is around 9.2 kHz. I downloaded a frequency generator with a sweep mode and that's how I determined my frequency. After that I had baby hearing test done and they say it was about 9.5 kHz. One morning about 3.5 years ago, I woke up and had lost 50% of my hearing in my right ear. Ear specialist said it probably was from Wi-Fi. I had steroid shots in my right ear 5 weeks in a row but it did not help at all. Now restaurants bars anywhere there's a lot of noise it seems that I hear everything but can't understand the conversation at my table. And sometimes the noise is overwhelming. Except with music. And I seem to hear more of the music then anyone around me does. Maybe my right ear is filtering out the frequencies that may be masking certain notes that I hear? Kind of like what a graphic equalizer does. Even in a quiet setting, I have trouble following conversations, I hear a person fine as far as volume goes, but I keep having to ask them to repeat themselves. And I can hear the dog down the road barking during the conversation. It's all very frustrating and annoying at times. I could really use some help with this issue. I do have Wi-Fi still but I've moved it to the farthest place in my home and the Wi-Fi level is in the safe mode according to the microwave app that I downloaded and tested with. And I turn my router completely off AKA unplug it at night.
Ringing in my ears: I have been having ringing in the eras for the last 3wks and can't sleep and I always think there is a mosquito on my ears. I went to see a doctor at a clinic and she said I should take tylenol for sinus and colds. I have taken it and nothing has happened, still ringing. I had vertigo last year which was treated, and there and I had some feeling of balance loss before the ringing started. My ears are clear. There is no infection or accumulation of fluid so the doctor checked and concluded. Anyone gone through this? Any idea which approach i should take?

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
