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 ear health.

An estimated 50 million people suffer from some degree of tinnitus (or ringing in the ears). While there is no cure to this distressing condition, decreasing or eliminating sodium is a good first step in its management of tinnitus (since sodium retains fluids).

"In some cases, tinnitus results when the fluids of the inner ear mix," explains Andrew T. Cheng, M.D., an ear, nose and throat physician and clinical assistant professor in the Department of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery of New York Medical College. "Therefore, the less fluids retained in the body, the less opportunity there is for them to mix in the inner ear."

Reducing or eliminating salt in the diet by paying close attention to the sodium content on the labels of the foods you eat and beverages you drink can really help. However, there are other lifestyle changes to consider, from managing stress to eliminating caffeinated and alcoholic beverages.

Dr. Cheng also suggests tinnitus patients try Lipo-Flavonoid, http://www.lipoflavonoid.com, 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.

"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 ear health."

The exact formulation of ingredients in Lipo-Flavonoid has been tested numerous times in clinical studies on humans and the results have demonstrated relief and improvement in the tinnitus, he adds.

For those with ringing in the ears, any improvement is a major benefit, since there is no known cure. For additional tips for easing the intensity of tinnitus or for more information about Lipo-Flavonoid products, please visit http://www.stopearringing.com.
