I thought that I would pass this along. It will not match everyone’s problem, but it might help a few.
A while ago there was a discussion about tinnitus. Yes, I had developed tinnitus but I had no idea why nor what I could do about it. I did observe, however, that after eating hot spicy spaghetti with a big glass of red wine that my tinnitus went away temporarily (but returned in the morning). I said that if I ever got to the bottom of this (was it the wine, was it the spices in the spaghetti sauce?) that I would post the solution, well, here it is!
My tinnitus occurs as a result of raised blood pressure (BP), this was probably due to my being slightly overdosed on T3 – just slightly, I am very sensitive and any deviation from my optimal dose gives me bad symptoms.
I have discovered that it was the garlic in the spaghetti sauce that lowered my blood pressure and hence temporarily rid me of tinnitus!
I have now started to put a lot of garlic in my food and I have also bought a food supplement called “Garlique” which is an odorless form of garlic. This has dropped my BP by about 55 points (to 140/70). True, I am still not 120/80 but it is a hell of a lot better than 195/70 which I measures one evening – which scared me to death. Just by sheer good fortune I ran into a neighbour who had a similar problem but whose sister was a professor of nutrition and she put him onto garlic to reduce his BP. It suddenly all fell into place – there was a spice in my spaghetti sauce, but which one? Garlic, Russia’s antibiotic, was the operative!
And so there you are, I hope this helps someone.
