      Tinnitus Since:
      March 2018
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Ototoxicity
      I mean they did seem to help my tinnitus, but I never got a good knack at N-Acetyl-Cysteine, Nicotinamide Riboside or Curcumin because I had to quit because of side effects very soon. I can't decipher also how strong the placebo effect was because of this. Didn't even have time to experience other health benefits.

      At the time of me trying them, my tinnitus was really bad also and much closer to the acute phase. I doubt they or any other supplements would do much for me anymore even if I were to dodge side effects. Mostly I just added the supplements to the list to show what I tried.
      The thing is, since those supplements are a very hit or miss there's no way to predict what will work because of our individual biologies, you have to try and play the guinea pig if you decide those things are worth the risk to your health and the financial cost.

      I'm not an expert on Curcumin, so I don't know, and it's somewhat contingent on the person as well. I couldn't even take it for more than a couple of doses. You could read the Curcumin thread or search the forum for Curcumin and see how long it took for people to work, if it indeed did work for them.

      It's good that you're at least open to trying out some supplements. Overall the message of this thread that I wanted to convey was, that one doesn't need to accept his circumstance, tinnitus or other health issues, and do his own thorough research and testing out stuff on himself, within reason considering the cost and the health risks etc.

      It's the difference between trusting the doctors and almost everybody on this forum, taking the beaten path, or going to the Jungle with a machete to make your own path. I know now that the last option might not be for everybody, but for me, I realized that was the only way to get out of this mess, since I was not offered a good conventional option, which I would have preferred had there been anything at all.

      Good luck with the Curcumin if you try it.

      TMJ/Neck Disorder (2016) Noise Trauma? (2021)
      I have indeed read the thread on Curcumin but noticed many of the proponents there no longer post on this forum. I started taking it just to see if clearing up inflammation might help, and I doubt it'll really hurt given its general innocuous nature. I suspect it won't achieve much though since what I have now feels more cerebral in cause.

      I suppose a better question would be at what point should I be concerned natural healing won't suffice? I'm a little over a month in, and while improving, I'm worried I'll bottom-out after a few months and have consequently squandered the golden hours I had to address the root of the problem.

      That's the thing, you won't know if natural healing will suffice until it's too late. People say give it 6 months of waiting at minimum, more like a year and by then you're way out of the acute phase.

      That was my biggest fear actually, I knew myself well enough to realize that if I didn't buy the laser, I'd be thinking "what if" or "what if I had started sooner" forever -- not something I wanted to live with.

      It's a bit different for different things you can try as well. Prednisolone you need to do within a week or 2, really ideally within days. HBOT within a couple of weeks.

      Laser within 3 months(I started before 3 months had passed, which seems to be the final limit where you can still get a good recovery from what I've read). But it seems to pretty much always be true that the sooner you take action the better. Getting out of the acute phase is not like a lightswitch, more like a volume knob imo.

      Also, in my opinion, the dangers of the alternative treatments are mostly overblown and the potential benefits undervalued. I'd not try something like BPC-157 unless I really had to and it's probably rather dangerous, but Nicotinamide Riboside, NAC and especially Curcumin are pretty innocuous in my estimation.

      May I ask you what the name of the place was? I live less than 2 hours from Sarasota. Thanks.
