Hi folks, several of you have read my previous write up on supplements and protocols I have been testing. I found another pair of supplements that seems to work really well for Tinnitus. It's from the Tibetan medicine tradition. In Tibetan medicine there are different kinds of energy in the body. When they become imbalanced they can lead to what is called a "Wind disorder" (in Tibetan this is called "Lung" pronounced "Loong"). Often people who do a lot of meditation, or intellectual thinking work, are more susceptible to wind imbalances. Basically wind imbalance causes energy to rush upwards into the head, and this leads to symptoms of anxiety, thinking too much, and problems with the eyes, ears, scalp, and nervous system. This can include tinnitus, tingling in the extremities, feeling jumpy, insomnia, or in extreme cases it can lead to mental illness. The traditional methods for treating wind disorder include a diet of meat, gravy, and heavy grounding foods like dark green veggies, beef stew, lamb, etc. No hot spices, garlic, onions. No stimulants like caffeine, chocolate, sugar, etc.. Also generally one is advised not to generate too much sweat during exercise, and to get good regular sleep. But most importantly, Tibetan herbal medicine is very effective, in particular here are two supplements that are both safe and effective. I have tried them both and am finding very noticeable reduction in T after using them for a bit. This supplement is best for use during the daytime, and for people who are often warm or hot in general. I have noticed that it seems to markedly reduce my T after taking it. I also feel more relaxed and at peace, and with less T, I also feel grounded and able to think straight again! It's quite relaxing and you will like it, I'm sure: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005GKYMBW/ This supplement helps with sleep and insomnia, and is also good to take during the day for people who tend to feel more cold than hot, or have cold or clammy hands and feet (people with thyroid issues for example, and also very often women in general feel colder, so this is good for them): http://www.siddhienergetics.com/products/bimala The supplements are meant to be taken with warm water -- just break it in your mouth with some hot water and swallow. If you want to learn more about the theory behind this, read this: http://www.itmonline.org/arts/tibherbs.htm And here's a book on the subject: http://shop.fpmt.org/Balanced-Mind-Balanced-Body_p_599.html This makes perfect sense! Wind disorder in the Tibetan medicine system is similar to kidney imbalance in Chinese medicine, which is said to be the cause of Tinnitus. A regimen of the above Tibetan supplements will help, and could be enhanced by doing acupuncture as well to treat kidney-liver-gallbladder imbalance, which are related to the same issues. But starting with these supplements would be a good first step. I'm testing them for 3 months - taking every day. If anyone else wants to join me and report back, that would be great. I will say that after taking Agar-35 I do feel a definite reduction in T today.
