      I am a health care provider but most importantly for this forum, I experience tinnitus. I have tried multiple things regarding diet, meditation, even a formula from Great Britain that came to me in the form of white powder in a plastic baggie! My secretary thought I was doing ilicit drugs.
      Here's my latest and best. I was able to do a gene SNP test which told me some of the things that I am susceptible to in terms of nutrition, like bone health, inflammation, etc. The one that stood out to me was that I was genetically a poor B vitamin absorber. I never paid a lot of attention to that until 2 months ago. In short, I started using high doses of complex and it has really given me my life back. Tinnitus disturbed my world on many levels and now it is in the shadows, meaning the level and frequency is incredibly less now and sometimes gone completely. Alcohol has been a factor for many people...even minute amounts. Coincidently, alcohol decreases B vitamins. Anyone else have any luck with this approach?

      Welcome DrMikeG. Thanks for posting a positive update to the forum . We have been telling people to take supplements such as B12, NAC, Magnesium, D3, Zinc and other stuffs. Do you take B12 alone and in what dosage? If not, what B complex & dosage people should try?

      I'm currently taking magnesium, zinc, ginkgo biloba, B1 and some other B vitamins in a product called lipo-flavanoid that also contains some other ingredients. Not sure if any of this helps, and on the lipo-flavanoid bottle it does say 'may take 6 months to see results'. At two pills per day for six months they'll sure make a lot of money off those.. Luckily they were a free sample so I'm trying them.

      I don't beleive plain supplementation intake will make any difference for most.

      what you need to do is to radical change in your diet which entails shifting your metabolism to burn ketone rather than glucose.

      supplements are secondary.

      I mean in a 6 months timeframe T would fade by its own.

      Ketogenic diet, a low carbohydrate diet. When done properly you can get lots of benefits including neuro ones.

      @Ecip,

      Use up the free sample of Lipoflavanoid and forget about buying more. Overall, it doesn't work.
