This was strictly a fluke cure! I have suffered from Tinnitus for about 7 years. From mild to extreme vibration hums and ringing.
My ears were itchy so I decided to spray a homemade solution I use on my feet after showering. In a spray bottle it's 30% water + 30% apple cider vinegar with 15% Borax and 15% baking soda. Put baking soda in after vinegar and slowly as it volcanoes .
Apply with fingers all around outer and inner ear, than a q tip for inner ear. Works after 3 days and I have no idea how or why! My guess could be some Tinnitus may be caused by mites in the ear. After 7 years what a relief.
I read somewhere that tinnitis is a symptom of premenopause. I cannot find where I read that but I began taking vitamin a to combat the problem because the same literature suggested it. It helped a lot. Recently, though, I forgot about taking vitamin a...and that it was a remedy for tinnitis...and the ringing is back in my ears! It's really an awful and annoying problem.
I started taking vitamin a again and am really hoping it relieves me of this problem again. It seemed to work before so I thought I would share it here as there is little information on EC about tinnitis. I did look up herbal remedies on a site where I sometimes buy supplements and it did say vitamin a is one possible treatment.
BTW, EarthClinic, the new website looks great! Very professional!

I love warm foods now that it's fall! 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

Over the past year I have suffered with tinnitis. It was very discouraging to be told by my naturepath that no one knows how to cure this! I believe my tinnitis was caused largely by hormonal disturbances. It is a symptom of early menopause. Tinnitis is also a symptom of heavy metal toxicity.
The problem was extremely annoying and made it difficult for me to concentrate or fall asleep. The sound was very high pitched.
Well, I always keep trying no matter what and I have another friend who recommended zeolite drops. Zeolite is a volcanic mineral that has a honeycomb structure. It has a charge that attracts heavy metals to it. It surrounds the particle and the body passes it out.
I used one bottle of the drops for about a month and it helped tremendously. My tinnitis disappeared to the point I forgot I had it. After I ran out of the drops, though, it came back again slightly. Not nearly as bad, though. I do plan to get more of this product. It's the only thing I've found that really helps.
