      Cordyceps on Amazon.com

      Cordyceps on iHerb.com (first-time customers get $5-10 off of their order)


      I have noticed that the Cordyceps gives me the most benefit. It seems to help me with a better mindset when I have loud T, but it also seems to reduce the volume for me quite a bit. I notice quite a difference when I stop taking Cordyceps.

      I ordered some from Amazon. Ankie has good judgment, I think.

      I take Vitamin D3, B12, a multivitamin, COQ10, fish oil, magnesium, zinc, moringa oliefera, a systemic enzyme (Medizym; same formula as Wobenzym), and a natural sleep aid that contains melatonin and valerian root.

      Ankie, thanks for the information about cordyceps. I had not thought of that for tinnitus!

      Karen, if you read up on Cordyceps, it is a good all around supplement for health. It was given to me by my TCM practitioner for supporting my immune system. A nice side effect was that after a while of taking it, I noticed a distinct improvement in my hearing distortion/tinnitus attacks. I also catch less colds etc when taking it, so it seems to indeed help the immune system in my case.

      Thanks, Ankie! I will read more about it. It sounds like a very good supplement. For awhile, when my tinnitus first started, I was taking reishi mushroom capsules, as suggested by my acupuncturist. They helped me to stay calm when I was at my worst. I may try the cordyceps now!

      Wait Cordyceps!! If I were an insect or came into contact with those killer spores I'd be very afraid.

      Has anyone ever heard of, or tried using, cordyceps to treat tinnitus?

      Here's an excerpt from the link that is below:

      TINNITUS
      In 23 cases of tinnitus treated with an infusion of Cordyceps, eight were reported as cured and nine significantly improved, while six found no improvement. The researchers concluded that Cordyceps was effective for tinnitus caused by fluid accumulation in the middle ear, while it was ineffective in cases with a long history of auditory nerve disorder.

      If my tinnitus improves or goes away, I'll post an update. I read that cordyceps have helped some people but I'm not very optimistic. I have had tinnitus for 5 years now from an ear infection. At the time, the doctor said my tinnitus will go away with Amoxicillin (antibiotic) but it did not. I have also tried acupuncture (2 sessions, which just hurt my ear), lipo-flavonoids, ginkgo biloba, multivitamin, apple cider vinegar, and a frequency generator with no luck. I would like very much for this treatment to work so I can help others out there.

      I did cordyceps twice a day for 6 weeks with high hopes; also talked to my ENT about it and he said unless you have a problem with fluid in the middle ear then it would probably not be of any benefit. I have no fluid ... cordyceps did nothing at all for me. I'm now looking into hearing aids (minor hearing loss) that have a Zen T-masker built in! You can switch from amplification when you need to hear best ... to Zen for the quiet times to mask the T. Again, I'm hopeful!

      I have one hearing aid with the Zen masker.. not bad.. but you still hear the T... just gives something else to hear when its really quiet... you can have them do a second program in the hearing aid that plays the Zen loud at all time with no hearing aid assistance... mine is factal music....
