Help Me Hack Away My Tinnitus.

I have tinnitus and its very annoying. I am fairly sure it is not from loud noise. I got adrenal fatigue and burned out, thats when it started. 


 


The theory today is that it is all in the brain. And all it consists of is overactive neurons firing. its a neurological issue and not a ear issue. So there must be a way to hack it.


 


it's considered the same as phantom limb pain. And its kind of like a chronic pain. 


 


I'm looking for new ideas, as currently people are pretty sure its for life. The one theory about mine is low aldosterone. I have & was diagnosed with adrenal fatigue, & aldosterone is made in the adrenal glands. And sometimes low aldosterone leads to tinnitus & ear pain. Let me know what you guys think. 


 


I am starting with rebalancing my neurotransmitters according to the ultramind book as I know those are very screwed up currently. 


 


If I could get rid of this it would massively change my life.

    I've experienced mild Tinnitus for the past couple of years to due to shooting an excessive amount of guns and lighting far too many fire crackers close to me (or lobbing them as if grenades) and one thing that I found to help with it was using Piracetam. Piracetam is more commonly used to help with memory or cognitive issues, but a lot of people use it to help treat tinnitus, I use it for both (two birds; one stone).


     


    Not sure if this helps all that much, but I know that Piracetam definitely has been a game changer for me dealing with tinnitus.

    I've got tinnitus, but I definitely earned it.  Was listening to headphones around a lot of ambient noise and an hour or so later I had a permanent ring in both ears.  


     


    I've never heard it compared to phantom limb and other neurological pain, but if that's the case you may find relief in neurofeedback.  Check the local listings; most EEG NFB providers have a protocol for chronic pain.  Maybe something similar could work for you.

    I'm going to give you the best current remedy for tinnitus, imo. At least of which I am aware. 


     


    Buy a bag of sodium thiosulfate from ebay. It's cheap. Try to get a better grade than the kind that they sell as photograph fixative (one of its uses). Food grade or above will work (USP is best but perhaps not necessary). Again, don't spend to much. I think I bought a pound of it, which is a lifetime supply, for eight dollars.


     


    Sodium thiosulfate is a hospital go-to remedy for cyanide poisoning, it's used in transplant surgeries, and it has some other niche medical uses. So, just because its used as photograph fixative as well, don't let that put you off. It'll also dechlorinate your water.


     


    It's uses are dynamic largely because of its superb property as a very strong reducing agent (aka: antioxidant). A little bit of this goes a very, very long way. A pound of it dechlorinates 50,000 gallons of water.


     


    One of its uses, that can be found if you know how to search the literature, is as a protectant against hearing loss. I have found that this use extends to reducing, if not eliminating, tinnitus. Also, if you have any potential hearing damage from, say, prolonged exposure to loud music, taking some of this when you get home from the concert will do well to mitigate the hearing damage. This is confirmed by my personal experience. You can likely take it before as a hearing loss preventative, as well.


     


    The solution I take was made by dissolving just 1 crystal of sodium thiosulfate in 1 liter of water. I then decanted a portion of the solution into a 2 oz brown dropper bottle, which is where I dispense it from. Please, please follow this dilution recommendation. Do not assume that more is better. I cannot overemphasize how strong this stuff is. That doesn't mean that you may not conservatively adjust the dilution in the distant future, but please start here.


     


    Now, I tend to be sensitive to substances. At first, I used just three drops to mitigate a neuroinflammatory disorder that I have (of which tinnitus is a part). I feel it at this dose (a subtle but assured change in headspace noticed over a period of days, likely only due to a the strong anti-inflammatory action, in addition to a reduction in symtpoms). However, I have found that about 1/3 of a dropper full of solution is good for hearing protection, hearing damage reduction after noise exposure, and tinnitus reduction. I also use this amount when I want to detox/feel better after eating something nasty (it works) or from drinking too much. If you come home drunk, and want to feel normal upon waking (not drunk) take 1/3 of a dropper of solution. It'll surprise you how strong and effective it is at the dilution that I recommended.


     


    I'm a cautions person, and I haven't taken any amount above 1/3 of a dropper of the recommended dilution, but I realize that everyone has different needs according to their biochemistry. My recommendation is to start small and adjust your dosage, conservatively, according to your reactions, relative success, and need. I'm not aware of any type of toxicity from this at any dose that remotely approaches the recommended dose at the recommended dilution (however, do your own research). It also is a strong chelator of calcium (one of its primary medical uses) and metals, and so you may see some calcium deposit related benefits at doses at or above 1/3 of a dropper. I have noticed some very minor circulatory changes for the better at this small dose. However, that could have been placebo. It is a strong chelator of calcium, however, make no mistake.


     


    Hope this helps. I find it to be a great tool in my medicine chest. It needs to be noted that I'm not aware of any studies on the long term use of this substance, nor do I take it every day. My dosing is exclusively needs based. That is, when I feel symptoms that I think could benefit, I take some. Usually this continues for a 1-4 days, the symptoms disappear (often after one dose), and I stop. Someone less cautious and conservative than I did relate to me that they saw decreasing benefits after taking a relative large dose everyday for a few weeks. I can't relate to this, nor even comment as to whether or not it is accurate or even possible, as I don't take it that way. I don't know of any mechanism by which someone should see a decreasing result with daily use, but that doesn't mean it can't be so. It continues to work for me, with no reduction in benefit, as I choose to take it.


     


    Keep in mind that whatever you have done or are doing to cause tinnitus will continue to cause it, despite your taking of this remedy. This stuff can halt the damage/tinnitus for as long as you are taking it, and it may mitigate further damage for as long as it is active in your system, and even possibly allow your neurology to adjust to a healthier state, but it won't fix your health in time forever. That is, you will likely have to come back to it, periodically, unless you can figure out what behavior or environmental influence is causing the tinnitus. In my experience, prolonged staring at computer screens has an subtle inflammatory effect on the brain and therefore has potential to cause tinnitus. It does in me ( but I have another predisposing issue that weakens my resistance to such inflammation). Everyone may not have this experience, but that doesn't mean that the inflammation isn't sub-clinical and therefore undetectable by you (according to how you feel).

    Thanks for the idea.


     


    I found a pharmaceutical grade over the counter product, very easy and very safe to use, don't know if you can find it in the US though. It comes at a concentration of 76mg sodium thiosulfate in 2ml of purified water (sorry for the metric units). I'm giving it a try right now!


  • Ordinat - what was your experience with trying the sodium thiosulfate for tinnitus? Did you have any success?


    This thread is the 1st time I've ever heard of its use in tinnitus and i'm very curious, if wary, if it genuinely works.
  • Very interesting faust. I do not have tinnitus but I do have hearing loss since I was a child, so I will try it. Thanks for all the details.


     


    Where did you hear of it?


  • FYI, There is a product that my brother-in-law uses for de-Chlorination called Water You Want. Web site is down and not much activity. He was just repackaging Sodium Thiosulfate in tiny bottles to detox water on the go. A couple of crystals per glass of water.  Does not work on water treated with Chloramine.

    Sodium Thiosulfate as Pond/Aquarium Dechlorinator

    Chloramine vs. Chlorine...


    The following stock solution of Sodium Thiosulfate does not treat for Chloramine, only Chlorine. Chloramine is a chemical compound composed of chlorine and ammonia and more and more utilities are converting to its use. Check with your municipal water company to learn which chemical they are using. If Chloramine is the disinfectant, please research other knowledgeable sources to learn your best solution for water treatment.


    To begin...


    Obtain a clean one gallon jug. A photography supply store will likely have good brown jugs. They are used to store darkroom chemicals. Dissolve the 500 grams of Sodium Thiosulfate in a large pitcher of lukewarm tap water. Stir until all the crystals are dissolved. Then transfer the solution with a funnel to the gallon jug. Top off the jug to make a full gallon of stock solution.


    • Add two drops of the stock solution per one gallon of the water to be treated.
    • One gallon can treat 37,850 gallons or more. Over-dosage is virtually impossible.

     


    Never heard of this use. I have tinnitus so well give this a try.
