Superfoods

Dainis, a question towards super foods. In one of your previous videos, you mentioned how super foods gave you energy and made you feel great! By doing this, was your tinnitus lowered or less noticable? Are there special ingredients/recipes you used? Has anyone else tried specific foods made them feel better or lowered their tinnitus?

Folks, this is thrilling!

Tinnitus Specialist Julian Cowan Hill will be giving a webinar at CureTinnitus.org. If you do a bit of research on him, you will note that he is a beacon of real hope for our community.

Nothing can compare with the experience of actually being able to interact with a healing practitioner who “let go” of his own tinnitus, and who teaches others to do the same.

Stay tuned for updates as to when the event will happen. Make sure to register so that you don’t miss it. Also, the webinar will be free.

Is there any relief from severe tinnitus?

I am a 41 yr old who has had mild tinnitus for 25 years but in the last few months is has become very bad in one ear and I am also suffering from hyperacusis in that ear. I have seen my GP and am waiting to see an ENT specialist but wondered if there is any way to relieve the tinnitus which is becoming quite distressing.

Medications that are well accepted in treatment of Tinnitus

* Lorazepam or klonazepam (in low doses). These are “benzodiazepines”, mainly used for anxiety (Gananca et al, 2002; Dobie, 2003)
* Amitriptyline or nortriptyline (again in low doses). These are “tricyclic antidepressants”.

Comment. Benzodiazepines and tricyclics probably mainly change emotional responses to tinnitus. Any sort of relief, however, is important.

We have also had some patients get relief from other antidepressants including the SSRI family.

The anticonvulsants such as mysoline may affect some patients who have tinnitus due to 8th nerve irritation. Mysoline contains phenobarbital, which is sedating.

The effect of local anesthetics on tinnitus was discovered serendipitously by Barany in 1935. Otsuka et al (2003) recently reported administration of Lidocaine to 117 ears over a 24 year period. The method was intravenous infusion, of between 80 and 100 mg. They report a transient (several minutes) response in about 70% of treated ears. As responses are nearly always very temporary, lidocaine does not have a role as a treatment of tinnitus. The mechanism appears to be central (Baguley et al, 2005). According to Dobie (1999), the related drugs tocainamide, mexilitine and flecainamide have not been shown superior to placebo.
Drugs in which it is uncertain whether they are effective

* Atorvastatin (Lipitor)
* Campral (author of this page is not sure — might be a placebo)
* Flunarizine (not available in US)
* Caroverine (not available in US, IV medication)
* Eperisone (not available in US).

Atorvastatin (Lipitor). A recent trial in older people showed that atorvastatin had no effect on the rate of hearing deterioration but there was a trend toward improvement in tinnitus scores over several years.

Has anyone found relief for their Tinnitus?

I have tinnitus in the center of my head. I have been researching a lot and have heard that some people can actually rid themselves of tinnitus. I am curious if anyone here has done it or knows anyone that has. Would love to hear your story. Thanx!

hello, i too have tinnitus, for about 6 years now. when it first started, the day it started, it scared me to death, having that awful noise in “my head” that would not stop, it nearly drove me mad. i always had to have some “white noise” going on to drown it out… tv, radio, a fan, something. then about a year and a half ago, i read about taking niacin for the ringing.
desperate, i tried it and it worked!!!!! I bought 500 mgs. of Niacin…which i found out can cause a warm flush through your body for a few minutes, first time i felt it, it spooked me too, but i knew what it was from. so i started cutting them in half to 250 mgs a day and had less occasion of the warm flushes. it really worked very good. “occasionally” i still get the ringing and it really sounds loud now after not hearing it for a long period of time in between. then my chiropractor told me to take B-complex instead. it has niacin in it, but no warm flushing…so I switched. I have even less occasions of ringing now. this vitamin daily dose has saved me. i hope it helps you too! for your own good, give B-complex a try.
its not an expensive vitamin either. and its good for the nervous system. i take the one with Vitamin C in it. i hope this helped. good luck! 🙂

Tinnitus cure remedies?

I want to help a close friend who is looking for proven tinnitus cure. Remedies or treatments that have been tried by other sufferers and worked for them. Can somebody pls help?

I don’t know about a proven tinnitus cure, but I do know of someone who has had excellent results using tinnitus remedies from t-gone.com

She ended up taking the remedies for about 4 months and I know for a fact she is sleeping much better now days and is far less stressed, so the remedy for tinnitus she took really helped her.

Any Ideas On Tinnitus? Remedies or Treatments?

Okay, I’ve done some research and have asked a few people but I want to know if you guys have any advice on this.

Do you know of any ways to keep tinnitus in check?

So far, I know if you drink alcohol, it doesn’t bother you, valium is the same, and I smoke weed.
I have also heard Dramamine works.
So any other ideas?
Please help.

By the way, I’ve asked a doctor friend of mine and he said that mairijuana does help by calming your nerves.
So all you anti-marijuana people, I have a doctor telling me its okay so stop saying it is not.
You do not have a diploma from a recognized medical school.
There is no actual proven fact that marijuana smoke is addictive.
Plus, it is legal for medicinal purposes in many states. So it is not illegal.

You need to find out why you have the tinnitus. You could have a benign tumor in your inner ear canal, it’s called an accoustic neuroma. It can become very bothersome because the ringing get’s so loud and eventually your face starts to feel numb. You just need to have an MRI of your brain. Make sure they order it as a Brain IAC (which means internal auditory canal) so it includes pictures of the area in questions. Don’t go to an open MRI because the picture quality won’t be clear enough to detect these abnormalities.
As for the pot, well, I’m sure it does help, I’m not saying it’s right or wrong, but still, you need to get to the answer of why you have the problem in the first place. Good luck.

Tinnitus remedies can anyone recommend one that really works.?

It is just too sad to stand by and witness my daughter battling to cope with the ringing in her ears! The tinnitus is not the worst though, because she find it hard to get to sleep her overall health seems to be deteriating. It seems to me that because she is always so tired and up tight, she doesn’t get to sleep much and nowdays seems to pick up every sickness that is doing the rounds. Can this be resulting from her tinnitus? I am searching for a tinnitus remedies right now.

What works for one person will not work for another so I will list several strategies here. However, one that seems to provide relief long enough to sleep is white noise so you might want to invest in a white noise machine. Static will often work just as well so you can try a radio set on a static station…no music, just the static.

If your daugher’s tinnitus is untreatable, there are several things she can try to make it less bothersome:
avoid caffeine
avoid nicotine
zinc supplements may help
use a white noise machine or a ticking clock
avoid loud sounds, music and noises
exercise daily (improving her circulation can help)
avoid fatigue as it will intensify the ringing
try to ignore the ringing (easier said than done at first)
if she has a hearing loss, a hearing aid with a “tinnitus masker” may help

The susceptibility to illness would probably have no correlation to the tinnitus itself but it might to the lack of sleep. When we sleep, our bodies rebuild and without adequate rest, her resistance is impacted.

My husband has had tinnitus for years and he said it eventually becomes so much a part of you that you hardly notice it. He had a terrible time in the beginning but now it is just something that is “always there”. Good luck to your daughter and you!

Are there any home remedies that can help or ease my dads tinnitus?

His tinnitus has recently become worse and he has also suddenly lost the majority of his hearing in one ear. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

There is no home remedy or “natural” or “alternative” or “complimentary” medicine that will help. I have severe tinnitus and resultant hearing deficit. If there were any such alternative, you can bet your butt I’d be using it! He needs to go to an MD for a proper medical evaluation and then, most likely, on to an audiologist to determine whether any assistive device (hearing aid) will help.

Has anyone found tinnitus relief from vitamin B12 and folic acid, just starting it from hearsay?

Musicians apparently take it to protect hearing, true or false

Sorry brain had it the folic acid is for memory loss!!! I meant to say graphite and zinc in addition to B12. Its B12 that musicians apparently use. I will try anything! special offers in Holland and Barrett.

I suffer from tinnitus and have been offered no solutions from my doctor or specialist.

Let me know if it works please.
