After 18 months of not posting, I am back. Here is a quick update. My tinnitus is about the same. My last post was about Lion’s Mane. I took Lion’s Mane for a short period of time. From my observations, I felt like my tinnitus noise level decreased. However, soon after I began taking Lion’s… Read More »
After watching a program on mushrooms on Netflix that mentioned the potential benefits of Lion’s Mane mushrooms for nervous system issues including dementia, I thought maybe it would help with tinnitus. I am sorry I did not update on my taurine experiment. I did post a few updates on my Tinnituscure Instagram page. I stopped… Read More »
Ok. Onto Day 2. I uploaded a video to show that the Taurine powder mixes well with cold water. According to the label the scoop is 2g and I think that is about right based on my measurements. The challenge with my scale is the minimum weight it will recognize is 2g. I am sticking… Read More »
I have started to take taurine again. The reason I restarted taking taurine is I have recently been experiencing an elevated heart rate at times. I am not advocating taurine for cardiac issues, but I am choosing to see if this will benefit me based on my own research of taurine studies and articles. As… Read More »
From August 5, 2017. Has my tinnitus changed? I am not really sure. I have continued to not really pay much attention to it. I continue to take the same supplements and also am continuing on my low carb way of eating with a little more flexibility. I have reduced my weight by about 10+ lbs on… Read More »
Since my last post, I have noticed something very different about my relationship with tinnitus. I am almost ignoring it now. I still hear it but I have not been trying to focus on it. I do not mean I don’t notice when it changes, but it is just there. However, I have noticed it… Read More »
Over the past few years, I have been trying possible ways to alleviate and cure my tinnitus. As I have written, I have tried supplements, meditation, posture and craniosacral therapy. I have read many reasons for the cause of tinnitus including trauma, noise exposure, medication, TMJ, deficiencies like zinc or magnesium. There are also different… Read More »
As I try to cure my tinnitus, it is important for me to try to understand what caused my tinnitus and hearing loss. Noise, medicine, age, deficiencies, disease or something else. As I am starting to piece together, taking these supplements which may work for others for example may have no impact on my situation… Read More »
I started to take astralagus daily to see the effect on my tinnitus. I have been taking it for about a week. Yesterday my tinnitus was very low the whole day. I woke up feeling like I had clenched the back of my jaw but I am not sure. This is the only observation I… Read More »
Sitting on train doing my tinnitus meditation. Heard conductor on speaker. I opened my eyes and realize my tinnitus was almost completely gone. I could not hear it. Looked around. Like wow. So this is what it is like. Someone looked at me as I must have had a strange expression on my face. Now.… Read More »
What is the nature of tinnitus? As a tinnitus guru I am building an understanding of what is the basis of the ringing. Is it a mechanical cause? Is it an electrical disturbance? Is it a manifestation from no external factor? Is it a chemical imbalance? The other question is what is the cure? Is… Read More »
Today as I was running for the train carrying my backpack I noticed my ringing in my ears stopped momentarily a few times. This makes me believe that the stretching on my neck helps relieve the tinnitus sounds. I have not experienced this momentary lapses in ringing in a while. I also noticed that my… Read More »
Sometimes my tinnitus just suddenly stops for a millisecond. I wonder if when it stops if I can hear anything or not whether all sound stopped or just the ringing. It is so brief I can’t tell. I bet many of you are reading this experience the same thing.
From my research on tinnitus, I have not found anyone that has explained definitively what causes the ringing noise. There are many possible ideas but no certainty. Now, what is the cause for it starting from the first place. Again, mixed ideas. What I have read is it can be caused by Exposure to loud… Read More »
