Hearing protection

In noisy environments you need to use earplugs, in order to avoid tinnitus. You also need to avoid the use of headphones and headsets. Why? Because if you don't, it's just a question of time and you'll have tinnitus.

Medical conditions

How can you stop your tinnitus? Improve your health because, while surgeries, medical exams and MDs are a waste of time and money, any of the following health conditions can cause tinnitus: diabetics, food allergies, head injuries, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, high triglycerides, hypothyroidism, otosclerosis, perforated eardrums, and TMJ.

Vitamin B12

How can you stop tinnitus? Chances are the idea of B12 deficiency has never entered your mind. Chances are you believe you are getting a sufficient amount of vitamin B12, even when you are not.

Because, chances are, unless you eat foods that are rich in vitamin B12, the foods you eat do not give you the vitamin B12 levels you need. Example: To get 6 mcg vitamin B12 per day, when was the last time you ate 10 boiled eggs per day, every day? Or, alternatively, to get 6 mcg vitamin B12 per day, when was the last time you ate 30 oz. of cured ham, per day, every day? (3) So, how can you you stop your tinnitus? Eat foods that are rich in vitamin B12, because...
  • The vitamin B12 content of plant foods is zero,
  • The vitamin B12 content of foods of animal-origin is small, and
  • To get adequate amounts of vitamin B12 in your diet, you need foods that are rich in vitamin B12.
While there are rich sources of vitamin B12 — such as organ meats, liver and clams — too many people eat potato chips, cookies and donuts, and avoid foods that are rich in vitamin B12. Ergo the longer you live, the more likely it is that you will experience the consequences of vitamin B12 deficiency. And one such consequence is tinnitus (ringing in the ears). (3) (5)

Vitamin D

Did you know that vitamin D, if you overdose on it for several months, it can also give you tinnitus (ringing in the ears)? (4) (5)
