      multiple factors
      I had very reactive tinnitus in my left ear for 7 years and had lost hope... had been depressed for some months of the year and was so frustrated with it. Tried lots of things to see if it made any difference, including B12 supplements, homeopathy etc... Knew certain things made it worse like alcohol and stress and being exposed to loud sounds (which I'm still quite sensitive to now).

      Having been a session musician (bass guitar) for that time and having played in samba bands/loud percussion groups etc for 7 years previous (with earplugs) I just figured I'd knackered out my ears and that was that. So a couple of years ago I decided to stop doing the sessions and just carry on making a living with my African drumming teaching in primary schools a couple of days a week, however mostly in small groups of 6 to limit sound. The tinnitus did get a bit better.

      However the big change occurred when I took some advice from a previous fellow tinnitus sufferer and fellow bassist to stop eating cow dairy. I was very reluctant at first, but took the plunge around 6 months ago. I was amazed.. the tinnitus went completely after a couple of weeks! I occasionally eat goats cheese, and instead of milk I drink oat milk etc now.. I was so pleased I can't tell you how amazing this was after the years of sleepless nights. I'm only posting this now as I tried an experiment... I've not been at school doing the drumming for 10 weeks and basically went back on cow dairy for a week to see what happened, and to see if my ears can take it... lo and behold the tinnitus has returned.. But I'm not panicking as I'm pretty confident it will eventually go away now I've stopped eating cow cheese/milk/yogurt again.

      Not drinking alcohol as well really helps.

      I sincerely hope someone sees this and tries it out and gets the same results as me.. That's why I'm posting (haven't ever posted before).

      Wishing everyone out there all the best, stay strong and good luck. xx

      I don’t drink milk and I have severe severe severe reactive tinnitus.

      I’m glad it worked for you though :)
      You could have been sensitive to milk and not know it.

      p.s. I insist that the kids I teach wear ear defenders and I warn them at length about the very real possibility of tinnitus

      @Layla23 I'm sorry to hear that. I know, so many factors contribute to tinnitus in so many forms in different people. I really hope yours goes away

      it’s okay! It is what it is.

      I’m signed up for stem cell therapy. I’m just saving up for it. But I also have eye issues from my T so that’s a completely different sorry.

      Thank you for sharing though :) Just because it didn’t work for me doesn’t mean it won’t work for someone else. @Uba

      Thank you @Layla23 your case sounds quite complex with your eyes as well. Wishing you all the best with the stem cell therapy

      Hi @Uba

      Thanks for sharing your story. I was wondering if you've tried raw, organic milk products. I consider pasteurized, commercial dairy and raw, organic dairy as entirely different food products. -- Congratulations on your success!

      @Lane Thanks for your comment. I must say I agree! I haven't managed to source such items, but when the T goes away completely again (fingers crossed) perhaps I'll give it a try. I've also been eating organic veg/fruit/meat for just over 1 year, I'm sure this has probably helped the body to cleanse in general.. who knows if it contributed to the disappearance of T?

      Many thanks for your comments guys. Best wishes.

      Have you really signed up to stem cell therapy? Are they pluripotent?

      What is the main goal you are primarily pursuing this therapy for - to reduce / cure ringing in the ears or some other diseases more suitable for this therapy?

      I'm just convinced that stem cells will not have a therapeutic effect on tinnitus or damaged hair cells.

      I don't understand why people believe in such questionable, and often fraudulent, therapies?

      It costs unreasonably big money.

      Would it not be better to donate 25% of this amount to various institutions that are working on a real therapy for regeneration / treatment of tinnitus?

      I wonder if your tinnitus was linked to excess inflammation and cutting out dairy reduced this? Not a well evidenced theory (the tinnitus/inflammation link) but there seems to be some anecdotal accounts of a link in some cases. I have developed many conditions since an implant surgery; tinnitus is the only one without an official link to inflammation but I note it's quite a common symptom in others who've had the same implant surgery. But my tinnitus always spikes hugely if I have any kind of infection, cold, flu or vomiting bug.
