tinnitusAbout 36 million Americans are suffering from tinnitus (ear ringing).  Ear ringing is a symptom of underlying disease.  The symptom is not affecting Americans only; it also affects people from all ethnic backgrounds and geographical locations. From time to time, clients from countries other than the US with tinnitus approached me for consultation.  The symptom of ear ringing appears to affect people globally.

Typical symptoms of tinnitus include persistent humming, hissing, whistling, clicking, roaring, buzzing, or hearing your own heartbeats.  Causes for tinnitus are various.  It can be caused by exposure to loud noise such as concerts, machinery, and aircraft.  It can also be caused by injuries, side effects of medication, stress, ear and/or brain infections, high sodium intake, poor dietary habits, etc.

The treatment for tinnitus thus requires a holistic approach.  Through working with clients with tinnitus, I have found that the following natural remedies can be helpful to reduce or eliminate ear ringing:

1. Environmental Change:

If loud noise was the trigger, changing the environment or even changing careers may be a relief for temporary suffering.  For example, some of my clients chose not to be aircraft mechanics, or truck drivers anymore, and that helped to stop their symptoms.

2. Discontinue Use of Medication:

If anti-hypertensive medication or aspirin gives you the side effects of ear ringing, discontinue the medication.  These drugs dilate vessels, and might increase pressure in the ear.

3. Effective Stress Management:

Stress may cause all kinds of physical illness.  Usually, I will ask my clients with tinnitus, “What is that you don’t want to hear?”  Spiritually speaking, tinnitus is symbolic of shutting down the outside world.  Once I guided my clients to gain insight into their life situations and learn a better coping mechanism, their symptoms reduced to a minimum.  Prayers and meditation can help reduce the symptoms.  This is also the case even with head injuries.

4. Herbal Treatment for Ear and/or Brain infections:

Yeast and parasitic infections of middle and inner ears and/or brain are very common cause for ear ringing.  Our Herbal Detox Program (Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea) is very effective to clear the infections and reduce/eliminate the symptoms.

5.  Anti-yeast Nutritional Program:

The American Tinnitus Association notes that dietary habit plays a role in triggering ear ringing symptoms.  The Association urges people to limit consumption of artificial sweeteners, sugar, alcohol, tobacco and caffeine.

When I put my clients on an Anti-Yeast Nutritional Program with no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no alcohol, no caffeine, no nicotine, nor chemicals, their symptoms subsided.  (See more details in my yeast free cookbook: Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.)  An Anti-Yeast Nutritional Program helps to prevent or limit the overgrowth of yeasts and parasites, which in turn limits the triggers of tinnitus.

6. Reduce Salt Intake:

According to the American Tinnitus Association, high sodium intake causes water retention and increases the pressure in the ear and thus triggers ear-ringing symptoms.  Restaurant food tends to be very salty.   Avoid using saltshakers as a habit.  This would also reduce your dependency on anti-hypertensive medication.

Ear ringing symptoms can be annoying and consuming, because they can impair your normal hearing ability, affect your sleeping patterns, and rob your efficiency of day-to-day functioning.  However, as described above, the effects of the symptoms can be minimized or eliminated.

sweet toothQ.        I have a terrible sweet tooth, like the size of King Kong. How can I correct it?

A.        Sugar craving is one of the symptoms of yeast and parasitic infections.  When yeasts and parasites hook onto your mucous membranes and suck your nutrients, they scream, “Feed me more!  Feed Me more!” If you don’t know what’s going on, you just feed them with sugary food every time they scream for it.  If not treated properly, over eating sugar can evolve into diabetes or uncontrollable weight gain.

Follow these steps:

1)    Change your dietary habits

Learn what to eat and what to avoid so that you can starve your little enemies, yeasts and parasites, and feed your body.  My yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking gives you recipes following my anti-yeast cooking principles: no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no alcohol, no caffeine, no nicotine, nor chemicals.  You’ll receive as much benefit as the effort you put in.  Don’t wait for the perfect time.  Perfect time never comes!  Once you learn to feed your body with nourishing food and starve the yeasts and parasites, sugar-craving symptoms will be greatly reduced.

2)    Herbal Therapy

If you have severe symptoms of sugar craving, I would recommend taking our Herbal Detox Program and Herbal Cocktail to speed up the process. Yeast-Para Control removes excess yeasts and parasites quickly, and Cleansing-Balance Tea flushes the debris that Yeast-Para Control creates.  Herbal Cocktail nourishes your body and starves yeasts and parasites.

3)    Stress Management

Stress is part of life.  When you manage your stress effectively, stress    can propel you towards higher levels of success.  On the other hand, you might use stress as an excuse to indulge yourself in emotional eating, including eating sugary food.  In my book: Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing, there are details regarding tools you can use to manage your stress.  They include meditation, prayers, affirmation, etc.  I would encourage you to go to my website: www.drjsbest.com to download the Ten-minute Meditation Guide for free and meditate every day to reduce your day-to-day stress.

For more information or to schedule consultation, please call 1-800-715-3053 or send an email to: drj@drjsbest.com.  In person, Skype, or telephone consultations are available.

Every body dies. Dr. J’s mission has always been to present a choice and lifestyle to live life to the fullest and die more comfortably, instead of suffering. Read below about how baby boomers are living longer, but not healthier, than their predecessors.

Baby boomers are living longer lives than their predecessors, but not necessarily healthier lives, according to a new study that warns of rising health care costs.

Men and women born between 1946 and 1964 were more likely to suffer from high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes than the generation before them, according to the study, published today in JAMA Internal Medicine. They were also more likely to be obese and less likely to exercise.

“Despite their longer life expectancy over previous generations, U.S. baby boomers have higher rates of chronic disease, more disability, and lower self-rated health than members of the previous generation at the same age,” the study authors wrote. “On a positive note, baby boomers are less likely to smoke cigarettes and experience lower rates of emphysema and [heart attacks] than the previous generation.”

The study supports a gloomy forecast for healthcare costs as the oldest baby boomers approach their 70s. Americans spend roughly $147 billion on obesity and $177 billion on diabetes, according to theU.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

“We’ve got a mixed report card here,” said Dr. William Schaffner, chair of preventive medicine at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tenn.  “We’ve got some As and Bs, but certainly some Cs and Ds with pretty serious implications for medical care in this country.”

But Schaffner say it’s never too late to turn things around.

“Exercise and diet continue to be very important as we get older, and it’s never too late to quit smoking,” said Schaffner, adding that exercise doesn’t mean “training for the Olympics.” “There are lots of easy things people can do: walking, swimming, gardening — physical activity of any kind.”

ABC News’ chief health and medical editor, Dr. Richard Besser, said the study should serve as inspiration for baby boomers with a lot more living to do.

“You can start to make a difference in your risk for all of these by making small changes in what you eat and how you move,” he said. ”It may not be easy, but it’s very simple: Start small, achieve success, and build from there.”
