Thanks Molly!! [no apology needed, I appreciate your reply very much]
I have been using Cayenne with my meals [mostly on eggs] for a few years now - ever since I read about The Master Cleanse [lemon juice, cayenne, etc.]. Now that you reminded me, I think I will drink the lemon juice/cayenne drink again!!
essiac tea was mentioned on the messages you linked me to - I will try that too.
I see you have tried garlic on a q-tip in your ears too - how did that work out?
- I should mention that I have had all my teeth removed [and am happy with dentures], which really helped my "fibromyalgia pains" [by about 80%!!!] but didn't change the various tinnitus' for me.
In my case, probably, the pulsatile tinnitus is from a blood vessel too close to my eardrum, and the regular screaming tinnitus is from damage by skill saws [noise] and possibly the two serious concussions I have had.
I believe most problems are virus and bacteria related but sometimes it is just plain old damage from the modern world: machines and vehicles!!
Thanks again for your reply, and may you find peace with a 16 yr old in the house!![it is a blessing - it might get too quiet in a few years, lol] :)
