How much Ginkgo will reduce Tinnitus?

Hi Barry,

How much Gingko biloba do I need to take to reduce tinnitus?

Jackie C.

Dear Jackie,

Thank you for your question. I can give you a number for the proper dosage, and will, but you must know quality of the product is at least as important as dosage. Ginkgo biloba is a fairly expensive material, cannot be synthesized, and is frequently adulterated by unscrupulous manufacturers. Adulteration with low quality substitutes is quite common in the industry. Even many products that are not adulterated still do not contain the level of quality ingredients listed on the label.

Consumer Labs has conducted tests for most of the products found in the American marketplace and states that fully 77% of these do not contain the minimal amounts of ginkgo components expected in products that will have beneficial effects. Arches Tinnitus Formula has developed our own high grade Ginkgo biloba that exceeds these standards. We have done this to provide a product that is the most effective for reducing tinnitus in the great majority of people who use it. You cannot purchase a higher quality Ginkgo biloba anywhere in the world. Please see our article on Ginkgo Max 26/7, the trademarked ginkgo we use in Arches Tinnitus Formula.

Provided you take a high quality ginkgo product, the correct dosage is 240 mg taken twice daily for a minimum period of three months. This equates to 2 capsules Arches Tinnitus Formula in the morning and another two capsules in the evening. It takes up to three months for any dietary supplement to fully affect conditions for which they were developed. We recommend Arches Tinnitus Starter Kit, a full three-month supply of four bottles. You can purchase these one at a time but the Starter Kit is significantly discounted from the single bottle price. You will also ensure you don’t run out during the critical three month period.

I hope this is helpful and you can significantly reduce your tinnitus.

Tinnitus Troubles Times 2

Hello Barry,

Thank you for your article on tinnitus.  Very helpful.  I have pulsatile tinnitus which developed about six years ago. I believe it was occurred from whiplash. After I went to a chiropractor who maneuvered my neck and made it worse (louder). Throughout the years I would also grind my teeth and developed TMJ which I’ve learned to control.

I got a hearing tests and according to the audiologist, my tinnitus was from hearing loss (33%).  But I really believe my tinnitus is from whiplash.  I am now 62 and still looking for some relief.  What do you suggest?

Thank you,
Florence M.

Dear Florence,

You may have two different contributors to your tinnitus. If you have hearing loss, this is the largest cause of tinnitus among sufferers. About 80% of people with tinnitus have it due to hearing loss. Arches Tinnitus Formula has been clinically shown to reduce tinnitus sound levels for the great majority of these people. Please see our article Do You Suffer from Tinnitus?

Pulsatile tinnitus is totally different and always due to turbulent blood flow rather than smooth blood flow. The causes of this are numerous but it can be treated successfully. It is necessary to know the exact cause for treatment to be effective. A vascular surgeon is the specialist to see for this. Please see our article on pulsatile tinnitus.

Sudden Burst of Sound Affects Entire Head

Hi Barry,

I experienced a loud burst of sound in my right ear and when it occurred and I went directly to an ENT specialist. He informed me that I experienced nerve damage and nothing could be done to eliminate the resultant tinnitus. Overall the sound is of low intensity however of greater concern is the muffled dull sensation I have in and around the ear. It feels like I have clogged ear passages as if I was suffering from a head cold. When driving and going over bumps I actually get a jolt of noise in my ear. Very bothersome.

Would you know what is causing the congestive feeling and which of your products might relieve this clogged sensation. Note I am on day two following the unfortunate incident. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Rob A.

Dear Rob,

It’s difficult to diagnose this after an ENT has offered no help. However, it seems to me you may be experiencing Sudden Sensorineural Hearing Loss (SSHL), which is often accompanied by a loud “pop” or other noise, followed by muffled hearing and ear fullness. About 1/3 of these patients completely recover, another 1/3 have partial recovery and 1/3 do not recover.

I think it is imperative you begin Arches Tinnitus Formula immediately. The first ten days are crucial to recovery. Clinical studies show Arches Tinnitus Formula is very helpful for those who have tinnitus due to hearing loss. Approximately 75% to 80% of those patients have a significant reduction in sound levels or full recovery. It can take up to three months to get the full benefit so we recommend Arches Tinnitus Starter Kit, a full 100 day supply of four bottles.
