I’m no expert on this subject, but when my tinnitus began (around 2005) I saw a specialist doctor who told me it’s from an inflammation of the inner ear, usually associated with or caused by some loss of hearing.
From my reading about nutrition and health, I understand the food we eat has an inflammatory or anti-inflammatory effect – on every cell of our body.
So, it makes sense to me that eating foods that contribute to this systemic inflammation can have an impact on any part of our body that is prone to becoming more inflamed, including the inner ear.
I certainly find that the volume of my tinnitus is higher for a few days following eating more inflammatory foods. For more on this, see “Your food and your health” in the Extras section at the bottom of the course dashboard.
