It is March 19, 2017. I ran out of taurine but I decided to order more and I’m going to continue my taurine. I purchased some more taurine from Amazon and it was very quickly delivered and I have decided to increase my intake to 4 g per day versus the 3 g I have been taking. This is a picture and link to the Taurine I purchased.
I also have run out of acetyl L carnitine also known as ALCAR. I will not continue to take this product. I’m also almost out of alpha lipoic acid ALA. I am not sure what I will do when I run out.
I have re-started taking magnesium however I’m only taking one tablet per day. As you may recall I stopped taking magnesium because I thought it may be causing my stomach pain. If the pain starts again I’m going to stop taking magnesium or try a different form of magnesium. I also take Vitamin D-3, but not specifically for my tinnitus.
Another supplement I’m considering is potassium, but I think I may be getting enough potassium from my diet. I could argue I’m getting enough of all of these supplements from my diet. So I am not sure what the benefit of taking the supplements really is unless high doses are needed.
So for now my plan is to continue to take taurine but at 4 g a day, continue to take lecithin which I believe is a form of choline, continue the tumeric with pepper, continue the fish oil for EFA’s, and continue the vitamin D. I’m not sure whether I will continue the ALA after I have run out of my current supply. I also may consider buying a separate vitamin B supplement and also taking potassium.
Here are the supplements I take which are available from Swanson Vitamins and Amazon.com (images link to Amazon.com). The fish oil supplement I take is purchased locally but next time I will probably buy it from Swanson Vitamins or Amazon.com. However, you should check with you health care physician about supplements.
My focus with this supplement regimen is to try to help my nerve system’s ion channels be as healthy as possible. I wonder if the ringing is caused by some sort of disruption of the ion channels in my neurons which is causing the constant noise that I hear.
I can tell you that I will not stop trying to understand the cause of my tinnitus. I will cure myself. The brain is an incredible organ.
