      The ACV tea helped reduce my tinnitus and also began detoxing. But, I got lazy and didn't have the tea for a few nights and had a big sweet dessert yesterday at dinner. I fell asleep and didn't brush. This morning T was sky high and coughing up phlegm as if had a cold or allergy coming on. What I did before drinking or eating anything, has reduced my tinnitus by half nearly immediately and quieted the cough,

      Before having coffee or food, I did an "oil pull" on my teeth, then rinsed/gargled with warm water and did another oil pull, followed a rinse. Then gargled with hydrogen peroxide, followed by rinse with warm water, 2x. Brushed teeth using homemade soap, rinsed. Then I sprayed roof of mouth, throat, inner cheeks and tongue with the ACV + water spray that I have been using on skin after baths and rinsed. Right off T reduced. It didn't go away but it is more below my ear rather than in it.

      My experience has been if a day begins with with loud T it only gets worse. My reasoning for doing the "experiment" was more that congestion and fillings leaching into my gut, might be reason my body was trying to make me cough it out. I usually start day by drinking coffee washing all the toxic bacteria and metals from mouth into my gut and brush teeth after breakfast.

      Phase two- getting rid of the remaining tinnitus by washing ears with diluted ACV and applied mustard -vinegar packs behind the ears. I also put a little ground mustard powder in a couple ounces of dilluted ACV and used my fingers to rub this round my ears, lobe, etc. Seems to be taming the beast (T).

      Why this might work is that it is a topical antiseptic, adds sulfur to the area that draws out and binds to mercury that has accumulated in mastoid and will kill some bad bacteria near the mastoid that keeps the mercury circulating. ACV (acetic acid is acting at the delivery mechanism - and is a component of EDTA.)

      On a scale of 1-10, T has gone from 10 to 2 in less than an hour. What T sounds like at this point is like a faint sound of crickets or peepers off in the distance. It started out sounding like a screeching noise a stretched balloon being deflated can make.

      No. It is not on ototoxic medications list. Supplements are listed on ototoxic medications lists; just google them. Hilariously, ginger and gingko biloba are on there.

      Those that had their T reduced with ACV: did it improve your hearing (if you had one)?

      2 tbsp ACV
      1 tsp lemon juice
      1/4 tsp cinnamon
      1/4 tsp stevia
      Add to 1 quart water

      Experiment with the above for your own personal taste...

      I'm on this at the moment, it's a digestive enzyme mainly and really helps keep your gut healthy. I think it has good levels of potassium which is basically the key element for anything to bloom and flourish in life. I doubt very much it will do anything for tinnitus but ACV is something that everyone should make part of their diet unless they have some kind of medical reason not to. The taste is becoming strangely nice too.

      I've been using the ACV for about a week. It helped, but got a noticeable improvement when I started using tumeric with it yesterday. Really quiet last nite, and even better today. *fingers crossed*

      Yeah it can definitely hurt your esophagus. Be sure to dilute it with water. Don't drink it straight. You also might charf so don't stand over you sofa.
      I tried this for a month or so when my tinnitus started and just typing this in this thread is making me queazy.

      @JohnAdams haha tried it at lunch today and just about knocked me over. Did mix it in with a cup of water. Worth a shot definitely a lot cheaper than some other things I’ve tried.

      possible TMJ, came on after severe cold and chest infection,
      Does anybody get stomach pains when drinking it (even though I dilute it) I just put it on my food now, especially vegetables, tastes nice in my opinion especially the one with honey in it. Not sure if it still has the same affect though?

      Just an update, I have had fleeting tinnitus like 10 times since doing the apple cider vinegar (ACV). In addition to ACV, I use a drug free nasal spray (once in morning) and follow that up with the valsalva maneuver, and breath in steam (once in the morning). I asked Dr. Nagler in the "Doctors' Corner" forum about my fleeting tinnitus and regimen-- if it is a coincidence.

      Many of us believe that Valsalva maneuver is the cause of our tinnitus. Consider not doing it. If you feel strongly about performing it, I hope you will do it as gently as you can.

      Can definitely support the fact that Valsalva maneuver can lead to tinnitus, that's 99% sure why I got this dreadful condition in the first place!

      If a valsalva-type maneuver is done too strongly, it can actually cause a Cerebral Spinal Fluid leak. CSF leaks can cause many different symptoms, many of them severe. The following symptoms are taken from the website CSF Leak Association: (See more comprehensive list of symptoms at bottom of post, which people on this forum mention quite often).

      Ears/Hearing
      • Tinnitus (ranging from ringing and buzzing to pulsatile tinnitus)
      • Pressure sensations in the ears/ear popping
      • Feeling of liquid in the ears
      • Hearing loss (sometimes similar to Meniere’s disease) and dulled hearing
      I've mentioned frequently there's often quite a bit of overlap between Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and tinnitus. The following testimonial is pretty extreme, and I'm almost reluctant to share it. But it does illustrate how one person's debilitating CFS was caused by a "valsalva-type" maneuver. which precipitated a CSF leak:

      I tried to blow up what I thought was a balloon, but it was actually a water bomb. I blew so hard I passed out. I was completely well with no symptoms at all prior to that, but since then I have never really been able to be upright due to horrible symptoms of presyncope, severe headache (I feel headache is not the word I want to use as it is far more than a headache, but I don't have another descriptive term, basically it feels as if I am dying if I try to force myself to be upright), nausea, light & sound sensitivity, cognitive impairment & more.

      Once you read about spinal CSF leaks, my mode of onset, symptoms & connective tissue disorder scream CSF leak, but I did not come across this diagnosis until 4.5 years in. ... So my cause was very traumatic/structural, with a clear inciting event. It was 5pm, 4th August 2014. Since then I was diagnosed with both POTS & EDS - I came across both of these myself by researching my symptoms, & saw specialists who confirmed these with tilt table, Beighton score etc. ...... I learned that valsalva manoevres, even a coughing fit or hard sneeze in some people, can cause a leak, it is a recognized mechanism for how a person can be instantly & profoundly incapacitated & unable to be upright.

      Thanks guys, I'll quit doing it. I don't think I have eustachian tube dysfunction but wanted to do the maneuver just in case. I'm guessing that my ears are fine and I can't cure tinnitus because it is just in my brain now. I'll be going to a doctor probably next month for something and will mention my tinnitus.

      try Apple Cider Vinegar..one tbsp with a big glass of water. The only way to find out if it cures or reduces YOUR ear ringing, try it for a month. Cures do not happen over night. Google Apple Cider but beware..its the snake oil advice in the wild wild west of the internet.

      Update: I quit taking ACV 2 weeks in. I noticed that when I stopped drinking it, my fleeting tinnitus happened way less often. When I asked Dr. Nagler about fleeting tinnitus and ACV he said it was a coincidence. I saw a Dr. and mentioned my tinnitus and he gave me a hearing test and said everything was fine. He gave me a referral to an ENT but I didn't go (I know that'll be a waste of money).

      I'm going to try ACV again and do my best to stick with it for 6 weeks. I'm going to mix it in with orange juice because it is nasty with water. If I'm cured, I'll let you all know.

      @morgothaod -- I've noticed at times this doctor says things like this, totally discounting what one's experience has been. That sort of discounting is all too typical in the medical field these days: Tell the doctors what's going on, doctor replies that doesn't jibe with what he learned in his training. -- Always consider outside advice, but trust your own experiences!
