Someone mentioned tinnitus on the ER4YT Just O board. Wanted to see what people had success with.

I've struggled with it for years. I had a TON of ear infections as a kid and developed pretty significant hearing loss and have had tinnitus ever since. I noticed when I cut out gluten, my tinnitus went away almost completely.

Within the last few years, though, i've started getting migraines more often than not. They always get worse when I eliminate grains and beans. I haven't meant to do that lately, but since my son is on the SCD diet (taking into account his SWAMI, of course), he's really not eating grains or starches, and it doesn't make sense to make two different meals when I could just eat what he eats. We haven't introduced beans to him yet, but that will probably happen in the next month or two.

I've had a migraine attack that began about two weeks ago. It's been a near constant hum of tinnitus with kind of a relapsing/remitting migraine that never quite disappears. I finally figured out that it's my usual Achilles: B-vitamin (especially thiamine) and magnesium deficiency. I've been almost 100% compliant being off of gluten for a long time, so I don't know why I'm still so deficient in the B-vitamins.

Alcohol and coffee are the two big elephants in the room. I'm almost completely off of coffee (though will sneak a cup in every now and then). Alcohol is my last vice (two cups a night most nights...I give it up for a week then drink again). Would either of those be big enough to make me seriously deficient?

My father has used the Tomatis Therapy for his tinnitus.  Although it is used for retraining the ears of professional musicians, foreign language acquisition, the remediation of learning disabilities, and the relief of stuttering, he found that the therapy also relieved his ear problem.  He was desperate with insomnia when he found his solution.

I was reviewing some of the material that I had picked up a few years ago and the general gist of what they expect you to get from the therapy is focus and energy.  It did much more than that for me.

DetoxiCal-D

That for sure, and anything you want to add from the "Type O Liver Protocol" is fine, but I'd make a point of the DetoxiCal-D. 1 tsp of Turmeric in water once or twice a day with some lemon. Regular healthy SWAMI detox foods are fine, but if you're not right for flushing the stuff then none of it does anything. DetoxiCal-D makes sure your body will dispose of what it's trying to detox.

That's how I'd play it.

So--even for those of us that are slow to rid our bodies of toxins--you feel that the detoxical facilitates that?  I have added detoxical-d to my daily regimen.  I hope it's helping.  Hard to know when we're getting the toxins out.  Always seems like a leap of faith for me.

I have a long history of tinnitus, but at this point in my life am doubtful it will ever be relieved.  Mine is pretty constant.

Don't loose hope.  My father's was constant and he was near his seventies when he got relief.

systemic enzymes have been reported to help tinnitus.

http://www.tinnitustalk.com/threads/systemic-oral-enzymes-for-tinnitus.453/

magnesium too

http://www.tinnitustalk.com/threads/magnesium-for-relief-of-tinnitus-research.212/

I personally would recommend using topical magnesium oil. Difficult to absorb enough therapeutic oral magnesium without having digestive side effects.

Not exactly. It makes sure what you detox leaves the body. If you don't have enough then you tend to reabsorb toxins. The OP's description sounds like it would be rather advisable.

Prolonged toxification or non-response issues are things that make me think it's a simple safe thing to do.

I posted this on its own thread, but thought I'd post it here, too.

And another article, this specifically on taurine, which helps increase GABA.

Mine was always caused by food intolerances. Wheat/grains and peanuts for sure. If I eat too many nuts/seeds it may come back but it's minimal. Then I just don't eat them for awhile.

As far as magnesium, pumpkin seeds for some reason I really absorb the mag. I always get leg cramps when I take mag supplements and started getting them again when I eat lots of pumpkin seeds. I also know it's the mag because the bathroom thing changes as well, sorry, TMI

Mother, mine was usually from wheat when I would eat it. But (other than really recently when I cheated), I've been off wheat for a long time but still having tinnitus.

I suspect right now it's nutrition related and that I'm still dealing with a ton of vitamin and mineral deficiencies. I'm hoping it clears up over the next couple of months because I'm quitting all of the bad stuff and staying strict with the diet.
