I have some hearing loss, basically tinnitus. I have been taking the vitamins that various websites claim control sensorineural hearing loss - and these protocols really work! With the right vitamins, I experience very little ringing or ear pain. I even feel my hearing getting a tiny bit better.

However, one of the vitamins is vitamin e. I seem to feel a bit weird when I take it. I feel groggy, tired, almost like I just cut my IQ by 25 points. I feel dumb - very dumb when I take them.

Is this the vitamin e?

I know that vitamin e is fat soluble. Because of this you do not need to take it every day. How many days can you go without taking it, to still get the benifits of it?

I am thinking of going 4 days on, and 3 days off. Has any body messed around with Vitamin E?

Vitamin E gets a lot of positive attention because it is an antioxidant and it decreases clotting which is a benefit to all of those thick blooded Type As who are prone to heart disease.  However, for us thin blooded Type Os, Vitamin E is not a good vitamin therapy.  I learned this the hard way in pregnancy.  My Dad learned it the hard way when Vitamin E caused his skin to bruise as he got older.  Dr. D does not recommend Vitamin E supplements for Type Os.  His multiple for Type Os does not contain Vitamin E.  If I buy any vitamin formula at the store, I look for the one that has the least Vitamin E.

I am prone to agreeing that this vitamin e is not such a good thing for me. However, the pain in my ears and the ringing "vanishes" when I take it with the other vitamins in the hearing loss protcol.

I might use vitamin e by taking a teaspoon of red palm oil - it has only 50% of the days requirement. My pill is something like 1600% the daily requirement. That dose puts me in a stupor!

Hi Jared,

I found the following from the archive. See if you can try the homeopathic medicine suggested:

Quoted Text
Hello, Heidi : Just to share information for Carl who has tinnitus. Homeopathic medicine - Aconite, or berbal Gingko leaves (check blood type first). One of my friend use two (pcs) double point white crystal (natural point), one above the left ear and above on the right while her mother was sitting. The tinnitus has gone and did not occur for several years. I will mail again if she has further info on this. Take care! lily

I'm assuming that your protocol has you off of caffeine.  

That was the culprit for the ringing and buzzing in my ears.

What happens if you take the other vitamins in the "hearing loss protocol" but not the vitamin E?

I'd give that a try for a few days or weeks; if it doesnt' help as much as the full "hearing loss protocol" then try using a smaller dose of E than reccomended.

Caffene bad for hearing, I will look into it.

As to the vitamin protcol, I started with only a few recomended supplements, then kept adding them, so I know that the vitamin e helps quite a bit. It was the last of the protcol that I started.

Then how about trying the vitamin E in a lower dose than the protocol reccomends?

Yeah, but I have not yet ordered any with a lower dose. I am thinking of using red palm oil (50% RDA per teaspoon) as either a cooking oil or taking it by a spoonful to replace the huge dose I currently take.

I know that vitamin e stays in the system for a while, once I figure out how long, I could take it only x number of days.

I can also order a lower dose pill. Looking around for that one.

I'm not sure if the red palm oil is compliant for Os or Explorers, or if it's even been evaluated for compliancy. You may do better with taking the form of vitamin E that you KNOW works, rather than adding another "unknown" to the mix.

Also, it may not have any beneficial effect for you, if the dose of vitamin E isn't high enough.  If the red palm oil has 50% of the RDA of vitamin E, that would be 15 iu per teaspoon. How many iu per pill in the vitamin E pills you currently have?

Hi Jared. . If you are a drinker of alcohol, I know for a fact that this can affect your hearing in this manner. Mine went away when I quit. Hope you can eliminate the problem. It is very annoying.

I only drink once or twice a month. So far Ginko has been helping a lot! I have dropped E out of my regimen.

I'm not sure if it was water soluble, but I took a dry E capsule for a long time because the oily ones always came back within a very short time...  I don't remember the brand, etc. now...
