      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.

      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.

      Damn doctor prescribed medication.
      I have T. I would like to know what do you eat for daily meals. Foods that don't add to the ringing.
      And how do I maintain weight loss do to only eating limited salads and not knowing what to eat?
      Were can I get recipes for Tinnitus?
      Plus what fruits can I eat or not eat?
      Thanks

      Tomatoes, cucumbers, sweet peppers, daikon radish, avocados, persimmons, mangoes, frozen broccoli, frozen cauliflower, frozen strawberries, frozen blueberries, frozen blackberries, frozen fish, rice milk. The above is pretty much a complete list of what I have been eating for the past 15 years. I mostly eat the fruits and vegetables raw. I heat up the frozen fruits and vegetables in my microwave, and I boil the frozen fish.

      They don't make my T worse. There is a small chance that if I my diet were to be less healthy, my T would be worse than it is now.
