According to the American Tinnitus Association, 50 million people suffer from tinnitus (ringing in the ears), a frustrating condition of which there is no cure. Symptoms can range from mild to severe.
“One of the most important issues with ringing in the ears is the fact that it is traumatic to the person suffering from it, and it often affects their family or other close relationships, too,” says Andrew Cheng, MD, an otoaryngologist and clinical assistant professor in the Department of Otolaryngology, head and neck surgery at New York Medical College.
Dr. Cheng suggests that tinnitus patients make these lifestyle changes to relieve their symptoms.
- Avoid caffeine and alcohol
- Manage stress better
- Avoid exposure to additional loud noises which can aggravate tinnitus further (invest in a good pair of Ear Plugs )
- Decrease your sodium intake
- Take Lipo-Flavonoid a nutritional supplement that contains the B complex group of vitamins in a base of Lipotropic agents, such as choline, inositol and pantothenic acid, plus vitamin C and bioflavonoids.
Cheng trusts Lipo-Flavonoid, “Seventy percent of my patients with tinnitus have had some level of success with Lipo-Flavonoid, which provides nutritional support to improve circulation in the inner ear for overall health.”
