A M (by email)
A: Here's my advice...
Take 300 mg a day of Coenzyme Q10. This powerful antioxidant is crucial for the circulation to the ears.
Ginkgo biloba helps to reduce dizziness and improve hearing loss related to reduce blood flow to the ears.
Cayenne supplements can be useful.
Eat fresh pineapple frequently to reduce inflammation.
Include in your diet plenty of garlic. Buy some Allitech from Dulwich Health - a great source of Allicin which is the active ingredient in garlic. www.dulwichhealth.co.uk
For ringing in the ears, mix 1 teaspoon of salt and 1 teaspoon of glycerin in 1 pint of warm water. Use a nasal spray bottle to spray each nostril with the solution until it begins to drain into the back of the throat. Spray the throat with the mixture as well. Do this three times a day.
