      Can be purchased at oriental herb & medicinal shops located in China town communities or maybe health food stoes.

      As someone who has a qualification in TCM (but never practiced) this scattergun approach goes against those principles Korean Ginseng is very very Yang and if you are allready too Yang it could cause side effects ,headache etc

      But with our tinnitus anything is worth a go isnt it ..in the UK I would say this is as good as it gets product wise( lot of junk out there)

      I've been on TCM for over a year a now and basically, there has been zero change in my T. Vinpocetine, is the only natural supplement, which seems to work for me, in. softening my T........ somewhat.

      ConsumerLab has tested a few Korean Red Ginseng products and two of them are approved, meaning that they contain what is listed on the label. These are (1) Progena and (2) Puritan's Pride. There are other approved products; however, it is not clear whether they are Korean or red. I will discuss with my doctor and report back.

      ''There was no statistically significant difference between initial and post-treatment VAS scores in all groups.''

      So basically no one thought their tinnitus got better or worse.

      I believe it was meds and stress
      Red Ginseng may be good for some but it has the potential to create more anxiety for others. Let us know how it goes...

      I agree with @Danny Boy - none of this stuff is going to work although he does promote himself a lot of natural herbs and supplements to take. Though I am sure that he will say that the real thing that is helping him is Trobalt and Keppra....

      Benzos, Stress, Anxiety, Loud Music, Jaw Problems. Who knows
      Ginsenoside is listed as effective in glutamate excitotoxicty. So this may help SSRI and benzos induced tinnitus. I'll start my "Mission Tinnitus" experiment with this one. I'll let you know all here.
