Q. Is Tinnitus diet related?


Tinnitus – the perception of sound in proximity to the head in the absence of an external source – has many causes. If it is related to atherosclerotic plaque, high blood pressure or neurological disease such as multiple sclerosis, dietary changes could help. This being said, tinnitus is not typically associated as a nutritional disease, and one should seek professional medical evaluation from their health care professional to ascertain the plan of care most appropriate for them.

    I had tinnitus that sounded like I was at a creek with all the bugs singing. I quit eating wheat and gluten and in three to four days my ears stopped ringing. I hope this helps others. Judi

    I hear a ringing sound in my ear that seems to be due to excess wax.  It lessens when I am able to remove some.  But now the ear is infected.  I have tried hot and cold treatment, and according to the suggestions of others: lobelia a couple of times and peroxide a couple of times.  But there is still pain and some drainage.  Any other natural remedy suggestions?

    A friend of mine rubbed on her baby Thieves oil, a drop rubbed in front of ear, and a drop behind the ear.  She said she saw results immediately;baby stopped pulling her ear.  Ear infection went away.  And this was after 3 rounds of antibiotic drops didn’t work.  Thieves oil is from company Young Living, therapeutic grade.  http://www.youngliving.com.  If order, put in Member # 1553428, which will bring you into connection with Liz, who went through the ear infection experience.  Hope that helps.  Terry

    Have any of you experience sounds and lightheadedness at the same time?

    Essential oils are very potent and must be used with caution. They were originally made for aromatherapy and I was told that some practitioners have seen ill consequences of them not being used properly, especially in children, when topical and internally given. Just know that in order to use topically they should be diluted in a carrier oil and you should check with a practitioner before ingesting ones that others have claimed may be ingested. And yes I do use essential oils, just want people to be safe. More is not always better…
