That's a little like saying, "good news for air pollution."

Or there's a knock at the door...


----Garbage Man!

----Sorry, we don't want any today.


Perhaps you mean, "Good news for preventing hearing loss."

:-)


Anyway, thanks for the good news. I want that protein today....

Or maybe I should've said... Good news for those "with" hearing loss.

Since it seems like it might be able help those who have already suffered hearing loss.

Several spiritual related books say that it may be coded information that you receive from advanced worlds... I'm not kidding...!
Now before you consider yourself an angel or some illegal alien I advise you to talk to a Chinese Medicine Specialist.
Western medication can in deed stop a lot of things, but it doesn't usually heal the root.
My sister is a CMS, and I remember we talked about that once... but it was a long time ago... I'm not sure what the conclusions were... something related to not sleeping enough, or not sleeping during the night...
Check that if you wish...

A lot of things can cause it, from fixation of the stirrup in the ear, to wax buildup, to it even being a side effect of some medications for other ailments. Vitamin B12 has helped some sufferers. We went up to visit my girls family a few weeks ago , they are in a country town, and there were ads all over the place for a tinnitus medication, but I can't remember the name. I asked her grandad about it and he said a lot of the farmers get it from tractors and chainsaws etc.

So do you have "tough ears or gentle ears"

I must have gentle ears as I have started using ear plugs when listening to cd's

No, they keep sounding equally as loud due to the extreme compression.

Sorry, couldn't resist


You really use earplugs when listening to CD's ?

Ginko Biloba is supposed to increase blood flow to the brain/head/ear region and has been documented to help some. Also extreme amounts of exercise.

Or my thought was maybe investing in some ear plugs. I know they occasionally clash with what your wearing, but it's better than saying "what???" all of the time.

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, the kidney stores a certain type of vital energy (can't remember the name). Extreme amounts of exercise causes a dificiency of that energy, which leads to specific symptoms - amongst which is ear ringing.
On the other hand, our body is supposed to sleep during the night. Similarly, if we don't let it do that, the kidney will suffer from the same problem, which again will lead to ear ringing.
That sort of deficiency takes a while (years) to become evident through ear ringing and other symptoms.
So it naturally takes a long time to recover... no miracles.
Therefore, if that's the case, western medication will only prevent us from not hearing the bell that's saying "hey, there's something wrong".
This is just an example of the new perspective brought to me by TCM, although I don't discard western medicine.
Sorry I can't be more specific, I know very little about it. I'm a gear slut really...
But it's worth checking out.

Marjan,

I'm glad you brought up Chinese Med perspective.

For many years i played in a rock band that practiced in what was essentially a concrete room. I had damaged my hearing severely.

I got involved in some of Mantak Chia's Taoist energy practices and a few years later had my hearing tested and I had recovered most of it. There are certain exercises that deal with the ears directly, and when used in conjunction with those for your kidneys, they help in a BIG way.

Like all things, it takes time.

But he did invest in ears plugs--unwisely, according to the guy you quoted. I suggest you invest in eye glasses.
