      Just wondering if anyone has used chlorella for tinnitus and seen any results?

      Chlorella on Amazon

      "An effective nerve damage rebuilder
      A phytochemical found in chlorella can actually rebuild nerve damage in the brain and nervous system. That's why chlorella is being used in the recovery of patients with Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.

      Improve your digestive system, including decreasing constipation
      People find that chlorella helps to freshen breath. Stool smell is also improved and chlorophyll has been attributed to relieving occasional constipation. Chlorella supplements can speed up the rate of cleansing of the bowel, bloodstream and liver."

      You learn something new everyday. Anyway, it might be helpful in treating tinnitus.

      Could be helpful in treating tinnitus, anything's worth trying. Either way, it'll be beneficial to your health.

      Here's the nutritional information:
      ~60% complete protein in free amino acid form (very easily digested)
      ~ 2-7% chlorophyll (which is the highest of any known food)
      ~ Vitamin C
      ~ Vitamin E
      ~ All the known B vitamins (Including B-12 although it's thought to be un-absorbable due to B-12 analogues being present as well)
      ~ Calcium (One tbsp. of chlorella contains 320% of the recommended RDA)
      ~ Iron (One tbsp. of chlorella contains 120% of the recommended RDA)
      ~ Magnesium
      ~ Potassium
      ~ Zinc
      ~ Iodine
      ~ Trace minerals
      ~ Omega-3 fatty acids (ALA, DHA and EPA - the last two are often mistakenly thought to only be found in fish and other seafaring animals)
      ~ GLA and other "rare" fatty acids
      ~ Beta-carotene
      ~ Mucopolysaccharides
      ~ Nucleic acids RNA and DNA (Sardines= 0.59% RNA, Chlorella=10% RNA!)
      ~ Enzymes (chlorophyllase and pepsin, the latter helping you digest its high protein content)

      I have read where a lot of people take this when they have mecury toxicity, but im not sure if you should take if you still have almagams in or not? yes it might be helpful in treating tinnitus. I start black Spanish root tomm. for cleaning liver for toxins. from a chiropractor.... I think I got my tinnitus from toxicity, but cant be sure of it...

      I've been taking it for a few months 'cos of the mercury connection. I have an appointment in a couple of weeks to hopefully start getting my amalgam removed properly. I think it is OK to take chlorella while you still have amalgams, but not advised to use the DMSA, etc. I may be wrong on that, but I seem to remember it being recommended as a prelude to amalgam removal in Alison Adams book 'The Natural Recovery Plan'.

      Anyway, I've noticed no effect on my t since taking it (so far...).

      Ha! Wrong on the first count and very true on the second. Be prepared for foul green runny poo and constant noxious flatulence. Also a slight improvement in the feeling of physical wellbeing, although maybe that is just the time of year. :)

      The mercury connection is invented by scam artists. It's been proven in clinical tests that amalgams are safe. Your body won't have any detectable amount of mercury because of amalgam in your teeth.

      A convenient theory for the establishment, and I don't doubt that the majority of people manage to survive without major noticeable damage. But scratch below the surface of that complacent view and there is much to be concerned about. I have read many stories of people who have been harmed by amalgam and have absolutely nothing to gain by saying so. Maybe that is some sort of collective delusion but I seriously doubt it.

      After months of research and consideration on this I don't feel any need to debate it with you. If you wish to uncritically accept the establishment view then that is your right. It is misleading though to claim that the science is clear cut. It isn't.

      Chlorella Nutrition Facts
      As you’re about to see Chlorella is one of the most nutrient dense super foods in the world.

      A 1 ounce (3 tbsp) serving of Chlorella contains:

      •Protein 16g bigstock-Green-Pills-On-Wooden-Scoop-48095327-480x320.jpg

      •Vitamin A 287%RDA

      •Vitamin B2 71%RDA

      •Vitamin B3 33%RDA

      •Iron 202% RDA

      •Magnesium 22% RDA

      •Zinc 133% RDA

      •Also, Chlorella contains a good amount of vitamin B1, vitamin B6, and phosphorus.

      It’s easy to see why Chlorella is ranked one of the top 10 health foods in the world when you look at its’ nutrient density score. In fact, per gram it is way more nutrient dense than other greens including kale, spinach and broccoli!

      Note that I quite agree that most of the people that want to rip your fillings out set off my scam radar; none the less, I don't think mercury fillings are "safe" by any stretch of the imagination...

      Yeah, doctors used to say it helped clear out your lungs in the 50's. Also the whole fluoride scam makes me wonder...I mean they put that poisonous stuff in water, dreadful, dreadful.

      It does repair nerve damage in the brain and tinnitus is some sort of nerve damage in the brain. So who knows?

      It does do peculiar things to your insides, although for me fortunately it was fairly benign. I've used large doses of spirulina in the past though and experienced uncomfortable elevations in body temperature as well as quite bad discomfort in my gut. And also (though not on the same occasions) feelings of extreme wellbeing bordering on euphoria. I would say these products definitely are not just another food...

      If anyone is gonna take chlorella then maybe start on a low dose and work your way up. I think your body gets used to it over time.

      That sounds like nobody has tested it, rather than that it has been tested and found ineffective. That's a hugely important distinction.

      Initial 2012. Massive spike 4/2015
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Noisey Lifestyle. Increase from infection.
      I had 12 amalgams. Removed one or two monthly 3 years ago.
      I've started too feel a whole damn lot better without damn. Might be placebo effect :).

      I definitely felt a lot worse each time one of them was removed. I had flu, fever and other unpleasantness.
      Removed them oldschool without chlorella - I have zero regrets. No idea if it messed up my body or not.

      I definitely didn't have tinnitus from amalgams and some of them were as long as 10 years in my system.
      I don't have any signs of mercury poisoning - should i take some tests and try chlorella?
      I would be interested if this helped anyone with their T volume/pitch.

      Well, that was the question Danny Boy posed at the start of the thread. I haven't seen many people say they have taken chlorella, so I'd hazard that the question is unanswered. It is best to avoid making black and white statements with suggestions that science backs you up when that simply isn't the case. It is best to frame a personal opinion as a personal opinion so that people know what they are reading. No offense intended. :)

      Incidentally, this post by a forum member about her experience with amalgam fillings may be of interest. There is a little more info around that post if interested to click the link (arrow):
