      After about 3 years with consistent mild to moderate noise-induced tinnitus: I drank daily smoothies blended with: stalks of celery, fresh ginger (one inch), garlic (1-4 cloves) and kale or spinach with water. I also snacked on avocados, carrots and eggs. In about a month, my tinnitus noticeably reduced, and I had several days I did not hear anything while I was drinking the smoothies (first time in three years). I stopped drinking them, and I have a bit of T again, but quieter than before. I will start drinking the smoothies again to get back into the habit.

      Could you give a little more info about your tinnitus please, eg. How long you had it before this happened, etc? Often t does get better in the first few months. Congrats though - either way it is a good result for you. :)

      3 years with consistent mild to moderate noise-induced tinnitus. I had never had silent days before then.

      OK thanks. I guess that is worth a bit of garlic breath.

      @Rachael What led you to try this particular blend for a smoothie? Were you experimenting with things you thought might work, or did you find the recipe somewhere? Was there anything else going on in your life that might have led to a reduction in T; for example, less stress?

      I just started the shake for over all health benefits and energy, as celery, ginger and garlic can increase circulation. I think it was the shake, because I never had silence for three years before.

      I found avocado helps with the garlic breath.

      Also I blended carrots with the smoothie sometimes. This article says that vitamin A can help with symptoms:

      Although not scientifically proven, anecdotal evidence suggests that vitamin A supplements reduce the symptoms of tinnitus. Poor blood flow to the ears contributes to hearing loss, and vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that removes harmful free-radicals from blood vessels, and is needed for collagen production and tissue repair. Carrot juice is a sound source of vitamin C, as well as B-6. Vitamin B-6 is needed for efficient nerve transmission, which is helpful when loud noises harm some of the nerve fibers in your ear.

      • Vitamin A is necessary for auditory functioning.
      • Multi B group vitamins may help to reduce the severity of Tinnitus. Supplementing with a B group multivitamin may also behelpful in cases of Meniere’s disease (one cause of Tinnitus).
      • Vitamin B12 has been found to be deficient in some people with Tinnitus. Taking this vitamin may help to reduce the symptoms of Tinnitus.
      • Magnesium is a very important mineral for the nervous system. Adequate magnesium levels are needed for proper functioning of the hearing pathway. Magnesium exhibits a protective in cases of noise-induced hearing loss and Tinnitus.
      • Ginkgo biloba has a long history of use in treating Tinnitus. It is thought to improve circulation of blood to the inner ear.

      I have no idea why Ginkgo has a long history of treating T. It has failed to show any efficacy again and again in many trials.

      Such a great story! Has anyone else experienced improvements from the shake? I stared it today, so we'll see what happens :)

      I took fish oil, 1 T of black strap molasses, and 1 T of organic apple cider vinegar for about 2 weeks straight. I did it because I had a bit of a health scare (the big C, it turned out to be nothing). I had read online that this combo shrinks tumors.

      My T went completely away for three days. I was so stressed by other things that I couldn't really grasp what happened. But I would listen to it here and there and say to myself "wow it's gone". My T is mild and mostly I am habituated, but I am going to try this regimen in the fall and see if I could duplicate it.

      I tried, but the flavor was horrible and always got a tummy ache.
      Keep us informed.

      Yes, I can agree, but if it gives me days of silence, I'm ready to take it :)

      The taste of the apple cider vinegar was not that great but I mixed it with water to make it drinkable. The black strap molasses was not too bad. I also diluted it with water. Both have a lot of health benefits.
