This was new to me. See what you think....Hey, it's worth a try I guess. I eat rice and the T is on the left side. I am also am taking extracts with blueberry and strawberry in my salvestrol. I am not going to give that up! My T hasn't increased so I don't think I have an intolerance. http://www.personal-growth-can-be-fun.com/tinnitus.html Food intolerances Food intolerances and allergies cause diverse symptoms. Tinnitus might be one of them. Having a good food sensitivity test is wise to clearly determine the offenders to your personal metabolism. Dr. Donald Lepore, a pioneer in nutritional healing, discovered that tinnitus in the left ear is usually caused by an intolerance to rice or some specific ingredients in the same nutritional group (which includes cinnamon, blueberries, grapes, strawberry, watermelon, wine, or pumpkin). He also discovered that this intolerance can be corrected with the mineral Manganese, vitamin B-6 and the amino acid Arginine. The herb Yucca is also good for these purposes, since it is an excellent source of Manganese. By contrast, Dr. Lepore’s research demonstrated that tinnitus in the right ear is usually caused by an intolerance to wheat. This includes of course wheat bread (or any bread or pancake that has wheat in it), pasta, and the wheat flour that is used for cooking. So people who experience tinnitus in the right ear would be wise to refrain from eating wheat products for a while, while they correct this intolerance with vitamin F (which can be found in olive oil, safflower oil, sunflower oil), the mineral Magnesium and the amino acid Histidine. Sometimes these food intolerances are triggered by an external factor. For instance, extended sunburn at the beach can decrease the vitamin F in the body, which at that point becomes intolerant to wheat products. So in those cases it is wise to put some olive oil (or safflower, peanut or almond oil) on your skin, after you get sunburn. This is why, pursuant to Dr. Lepore’s research, the so called “swimmer’s ear” is not an infection from the water, but a wheat allergy caused by sunburn. Here is another site that Dr. Lepore gives more in depth detail on food allergies and how they can be relieved... http://www.bodyandsoulreconnection.com/food-allergies-can-be-reversed/ There are questions and answers there regarding tinnitus. Here is the first one: mehdi Hello, i read that tinnitus in the right ear may be due to a wheat allergy and a defficiency in vitamin f and magnesium and histidine….. I have tinnitus in the right ear, so i would like to know if you already helped someone to cure his tinnitus and which program do you recommend ( which form of magnesium supplements, eating more proteins for examples and taking more safflower oil, does that can be a treatment ?? ) Lu Martinez Dear Mehdi, yes I have helped a handful of clients with tinnitus (ringing) in their right ear. In all cases they were deficient in magnesium. I suggest 1000 mg of magnesium per day for 10 days and then drop down to 500 mg per day for another 4-6 weeks. Ringing should completely go away within 4-6 weeks. Also, I had a couple of clients with ringing in their left ear and that was due to deficient manganese. I use the yucca her which is high in manganese for this deficiency. The magnesium that I have utilized is the kind you can find in any good health food store. The key are the amounts. With higher magnesium levels stools can get softer. Or if a person tended to have constipation issues they will notice that the magnesium shifts that condition for them. Vitamin F (found in safflower oil and corn oil) are great in improving hayfever symptoms. Other deficiencies that can cause hay fever are omega-3 and omega-6. I have also found some clients low in B-6 and magnesium which also exhibit hayfever symptoms. Basically it can be a combination of these nutrients or one that is very deficient. I hope this is helpful.
