Tinnitus, do you suffer from it or know someone who does? Tinnitus is also known as a ringing in ones ears. There is no cure for tinnitus and it is one of those conditions that is very annoying because it is always there.
Why am I doing an informational review of this product on my blog? I am sure you are thinking this. Well until recently, tinnitus (ringing in the ears) was experienced mostly by those over the age of 50. While the cause of tinnitus is not fully understood, many experts say that it is a result of an injury to the hearing mechanism caused by a sudden loud noise/explosion or repeated and prolonged exposure to loud noises (loud music, occupational exposure, etc.) Hmm maybe I should rethink the idea of using music played loudly to drown out the kids when they are all being super loud.
We are a military family and as my husband does not suffer from this condition, this condition is making itself know among the military communities. "Many of the troops returning from overseas are reporting a high incidence of tinnitus despite the fact that most of them are quite young,” explains Andrew Cheng, M.D., an otolaryngologist and clinical assistant professor in the Department of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery at New York Medical College and ear health advisor for Lipo-Flavonoid (Lipo-Flavonoid.com ), a clinically-proven, dietary supplement that has shown promising relief for tinnitus sufferers.
There can be some relief for your tinnitus, Dr. Cheng suggests that you try, avoiding caffeine and alcohol, manage your stress, avoid your exposure to any additional loud noises (invest in a good pair of ear plugs), which can aggravate tinnitus even further, control your blood pressure, decrease your salt and sodium intake. These are a few ways to help and also to take Lipo-Flavonoid.
What is Lipo-Flavonoid? Lipo-Flavonoid, Lipo-Flavonoid.com, is 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[RL&A2], 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 [RL&A3] on humans and the results have demonstrated relief and improvement in the tinnitus, Dr. Cheng adds. For those with ringing in the ears, any improvement is a major benefit, since there is no known cure. Lipo-Flavonoid is free of sugar, starch, yeast, wheat, corn milk products and preservatives and is a great natural alternative for people who have tinnitus and need help coping with this condition.
Who is this Andrew Cheng, M.D. that I keep mentioning? Andrew Cheng, M.D., is a practicing, board-certified ear, nose and throat physician and a Clinical Assistant Professor of Otolaryngology & Head and Neck Surgery at New York Medical College with a private clinical practice in New York City.
Dr. Cheng specializes in sinus disease, thyroid, parotid tumors surgery, and laser surgery related to vocal cords and voice problems, as well as the treatment and management of tinnitus (chronic ringing in the ears) and other hearing loss issues. In addition to being a Clinical Assistant Professor at New York Medical College/New York Eye & Ear, Dr. Cheng serves as Co-Chair for both the Committee on Family Health Issues and Membership Benefit Committee. He is currently the President of the Board of Trustee for New York County Medical Society. Dr. Cheng is a current media advisor to the ear health consumer education program for Lipo-Flavonoid®, a dietary supplement that has shown clinical relief for tinnitus sufferers, he offers insight and expertise on the topic of tinnitus and its negative effect on psychological health and hearing issues, how to help prevent the development of tinnitus and how sufferers can ease the intensity for a better quality of life.

While there is no known medical cure for tinnitus - which leaves millions (more than 50 million in US) to learn how to live with this sometimes debilitating condition – Dr. Cheng says there are ways to ease the intensity of the ringing by incorporating a variety of lifestyle and dietary changes into your daily routine, including taking Lipo-Flavonoid, “Many of my patients with tinnitus have had 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,” says Dr. Cheng.
