I am a Forester / Arborist and have worked in the timber industry for over thirty years. Over the years I have neglected to use the proper ear protection and have suffered with the constant ringing in my ears, consequently from the use of chainsaws, chippers and other power equipment of my profession. I started taking the supplement, Arches Tinnitus Formula a year ago and can honestly tell the difference it has made in my quality of life. The ringing I suffered with at bedtime has ceased and given me a much more peaceful rest. I continue to take it daily and recommend to anyone that is looking for relief from the constant ringing!*
I have been a customer of Arches for probably seven or so years. I was lucky to have stumbled across you while doing research online. This was after the onset of tinnitus ripped my life apart. I lost my ability to work as a chef, my apartment and so on.I am fortunate enough to have put things back together over time and things are much better. Your products have had a huge difference in my quality of life. I now run a very successful personal chef business and we are very busy.*
Yes, I am a "real" customer. I developed Tinnitus about seven years ago after suffering from a severe head cold and clogged Eustachian tubes. After several visits to my family physician and then to an ear, nose, and throat specialist, I was officially diagnosed with tinnitus and was told that nothing could be done about it, so I should just get used to it.
I then turned to the internet and saw that there are dozens of brands of tinnitus medications. I tried out one brand of pills, and felt that they actually made my condition worse. I sent back the unused pills for a refund as promised on their internet site, but never heard from them again.
I don't even remember why I decided to give Arches a try, but I am glad that I did. The Arches Tinnitus Formula does not cure my tinnitus completely, but it keeps the loudness of the ringing down to a very manageable level. I compare my tinnitus when I am on ATF to a clock ticking in the background. If I am busy doing things, I seldom even notice the ringing. It is only when things are very quiet and I am not concentrating on something else that I am fully conscious of the ringing. If I go off the ATF capsules for several days, the ringing begins to get louder and is more intrusive into my everyday activities.
I also really enjoy Barry Keate's articles. They are informative and useful. I feel that they are also objective, which gives me confidence that you really know what you are doing with the formulation of your products.*
When my left ear started buzzing at me (very loudly), one afternoon last February, I did not even know the term tinnitus. A bit of web research left me even more upset and hopeless. Five ear nose and throat doctors didn't help a bit either (lots of allergy drugs). I finally found your site and some of the sanest info on tinnitus on the web. I have had very noticeable improvement after starting to use your Relief and B-12 Formulas.
For me at least the biggest single factor seems stress, it is literally as if I hear my fear. I am slowly learning to monitor myself, breathe better, and stay calm. Your website seems one of the few places on the Internet that really encourages people to sense the interconnected and almost metaphysical nature of the condition.*
Thank You! Thank You!
I have written before, but must write again to say that your Tinnitus Formula has made a major difference in my life. I have Meniere's Disease. While I was taking the 4th bottle of ATF, the ringing in my ears, which had been almost unmanageable, was reduced by about 70%, the pulsatile tinnitus was similarly reduced, and I am no longer experiencing episodes of vertigo. All of these symptoms had been very difficult and I am immensely grateful for the help I have experienced using this product.*
Since I began taking Arches Tinnitus Formula I’ve appreciated a significant reduction in my tinnitus. After being on it for just a short time, most of my tinnitus completely disappeared. When I do have episodes, they are very brief and are of very low intensity. I will continue to use ATF and spread the good news to my family, friends, colleagues and others who currently suffer from tinnitus. Thank you for providing me with this highly effective product. It has quickly and fully restored my quality of life!*
I have now completed 5 bottles of your Tinnitus Formula. I write this letter sitting in my QUIET office ,the hissing in my ears no longer screaming at me but reduced to faint background spurts. For me your product has been amazing, in the early days I just wanted to bury my head in the sand and it is almost a year now from when it first hit me in March 2005.I honestly used to think every day how was I going to get through it now I am starting to enjoy life again.*
Thank you again.
Ever since I started using Arches Tinnitus Formula I have had nothing but great success. Every doctor I went to see told me there was nothing they could do for me and could not help me. I was at my wits end with constant discomfort. I couldn’t concentrate and I couldn’t enjoy my daily life. I was very depressed. I stuck with your product and it has been a godsend. I am now taking only two capsules per day. On occasion, I may take two more when needed, which is quite infrequent. I hardly notice the hissing and I can cope with it. I am about 80% to 90% better, which is very livable. I have recommended this product to my friends and to one of my doctors.*
Thank you once again for this great product.
It's approximately 80-85 days since I ordered and have used Arches Tinnitus, Stress and B12 Formulas. The potency of the formulas kicked in about 2 weeks ago. My tinnitus which focused on my left side (left ear) most of the time has gone from nuisance level ranges of approximately 2 through 4.5 to the present 2 through 2.5 and is more consistent at the latter 2-2.5 levels than when the tinnitus ranged 2-4.5. Isn't that GREEAAT!*
I have been using Arches Tinnitus Formula for approximately one and one half years now. Words alone could not describe the constant high level pitch that I experienced day in and day out with my ear ringing ( like a whistling tea kettle), for over a year. I simply did not know which way to turn anymore. Yes I too, was often gullible enough to try remedies that gave little or no relief at all, because I was so desperate for relief.
All of my life I have been taking many vitamins and supplements prior to my tinnitus condition. When I finally came across Arches Tinnitus Formula, I did not experience immediate relief, but I could sense that it was forthcoming. Since I have been using Arches, I no longer have to take it every day anymore, only occasionally. On a scale of one to ten, mine is about a three now. My tinnitus still keeps me honest though, and will flare up once in a while for a day or so at high levels, then subside. I simply take my Arches formulas to once again get my proven results. Barry, thank you for all of your great help, I appreciate those newsletters too. Thanks for a great product.*
I have suffered with tinnitus for about 10 years. A friend in a health food store told me about your website and I ordered the Combo Pack. I did not believe it would help. Now after taking it for almost two months I have noticed a big improvement. I cannot thank my friend enough and I will keep taking your formulas. Your success stories helped me understand tinnitus better through their testimonies. I could empathize with them all. I am positive I will continue to improve as time goes by. Thank you so much!*
When I was first diagnosed with Tinnitus my life as I know it was over.The head noise was so loud I couldn't work or sleep. I even thought about suicide. I went online to find out more about the disorder and tried everything. I went to every doctor had all the tests done. Nothing worked. I was so depressed. In my sixth week of taking Arches Tinnitus Formula the head noise was greatly reduced. I went back to work and I started sleeping again. I feel normal.
Thanks Arches, you gave me my life back.*
My tinnitus started abruptly one day when I woke up with an intense ringing in my left ear. After ear cleaning and two ENT exams I found out I had excellent hearing but nothing to explain the ringing. The first doctor offered no hope but the second (a highly regarded specialist here in New England) recommended I try Arches' formulas.
I started using the Arches Tinitus Formula within two months of onset and have had excellent results. After three months of use I can say that on most days I really don’t notice any noise at all and I am sleeping great! On days when I do notice any sound it’s at a much reduced level. After a few months of worrying about my future I now feel like I have my life back. A skeptical person by nature (especially where the internet and “herbal remedies” are concerned) I was reluctant at first but am glad I tried it. If you find yourself with this condition please don’t hesitate-you’ve nothing to lose!*
Just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy ATF. I've endured tinnitus since 1993. For the past year I've been using your product. I read about it in "Tinnitus Today". I had tried other ginkgo products in the past and had not had much success with it, so I was a little skeptical. Being desperate for some relief I ordered it and gave it a trial. My tinnitus, which I described as a tea kettle whistling, dropped greatly in intensity. I've since taken myself off the product to see if there would be any change. Much to my dismay, the tea kettle noise returned. I started taking the product again and noticed the reduction in intensity within a week. I feel like I have some control over my tinnitus and my life. Thanks again.*
I am a Traditional Chinese Medical practitioner at Henry Ford Center for Integrative Medicine and Dr. Michael Seidman is our Medical Director. He is a wonderful and amazing person and physician and is highly regarded amongst our staff here. He often refers patients to us who have not found relief with their tinnitus using all that he has to offer...including the Arches Tinnitus Formulas. I have heard a great number of people who have had wonderful success with your formulas...we carry them here.
Thank you for having such a wonderful product and for informing patients that there can be relief out there for them!*
Yours in Health,
When I went to see my audiologist to get a new hearing aid, I complained to her about the tinnitus problem that I have had for a long time. She said that being deaf and living in stressful life can cause my tinnitus. She recommended the Arches Tinnitus Formulas and to try them for 3 months. She said that if they don't work, then I have nothing to lose. I was skeptical at first, but I went ahead and tried them. I was amazed that after 4 weeks of taking them, my tinnitus started to "quiet down" a great deal. It was a big relief for me! It is amazing that your treatment can treat the tinnitus that the modern medical technology cannot solve.*
I have had tinnitus in both ears since March10, 2002 (I'll never forget that date!). I've tried all the usual remedies, including your Arches Tinnitus Relief Formula. I have noted a definite correlation between the use of your product and a reduction in ringing volume. In fact, since I started using your product, the ringing has subsided to the point where I am able to experience a normal life (i.e., sleep well, concentrate at work, etc.), Best of all I got off the antidepressant, Effexor, which my doctor recommended when my tinnitus first started.
I ran out of my first order, and after a week or so, the ringing started getting louder again. Since reordering and restarting treatment, the ringing has faded. I am convinced that your product has made the difference, and that ordinary Gingko from the local health food store is no substitute.
So, I guess you have a customer for life (please don't go out of business!!!). Regards (and thanks!)." *
I have a severe case of tinnitus in my left ear. I have gone to several specialists, and their suggestion was Valium. That was not the way I wanted to deal with the problem. I read an article about Arches Tinnitus Relief and decided to try it. I took 4 pills a day for 5 weeks, and could not believe the relief I had. To save money, I bought Ginkgo Biloba and Garlic at a health food store, after 5 weeks I had no relief. I went back on Arches Tinnitus Formula. Thank you for your product.*
Voila! Today I started with the second series of four bottles. Just wanted to let you know, that most of the time (at least 80 %) there isn't any tinnitus anymore. And the rest of the time, it's VERY slight! You created really a great product!
I just wanted to let you know that the Tinnitus Formula is working!!!! I just started my second bottle and - yes - it has already made a difference. Today I hear no click, click, click from my right ear. Before starting this program I heard what seemed like rushing water from this ear. After starting this program it progressed to the clicking and today there is no "noise". What a relief! Hopefully this will continue. I just ordered and received three more bottles of the formula. If this continues to work I won't be without my Arches Tinnitus Formula.
I was diagnosed with Meniere's disease in March, 2002.The initial symptoms were a noticeable loss of hearing and a moderate noise in my right ear. Two weeks later I experienced the first vertigo attack. I had no sense of balance and was slightly nauseated. My fluctuating hearing loss was constant--some days slight, some days severe. The tinnitus was only background noise at first but later became episodes that were so loud they would wake me at night. The vertigo was the worst. The attacks came every one to two weeks at first. The nausea increased to bouts of vomiting and could last over two hours. I had now lost my independence. I no longer drove or went anywhere by myself. The "spinning" and loss of balance would come on with no warning. I was not able to make plans. Social situations were something that I began to dread.
In the fall of 2002 I started taking Arches Tinnitus Formula. I began to feel more relaxed and my attitude became more positive. I still had some vertigo attacks but the tinnitus was gone. In January, 2003 I had my last Meniere's attack. The vertigo was much less severe and there was no nausea. My confidence and independence are back and I feel very comfortable making plans again. In May, 2003 my hearing test showed a level that was just below normal in my right ear. My left ear was never affected.
I cannot believe the change in my life since I started taking ATF. The initial response was that I just started to feel good. Then the symptoms lessoned and have finally stopped. I now believe that my Meniere's disease is under control. Thank you for this great product.*
I made the mistake of running out of your product, I thought well it's been a year since I developed tinnitus maybe I’ve adjusted to the sound and don't need to take anything. Well two weeks have past going on three weeks and the ringing is starting to come back louder and a clicking sound which I had not had. This tells me that the Arches TinnitusFormula was definitely making a difference. I will wait for my product to get here. And I can't wait. I love you guys! Don’t know where I'd be without a strong faith and your product!*
After taking Arches Tinnitus Formula for about 70 days my tinnitus has reduced significantly. I was determined, I had to do something, finally my doctor prescribed ATF. THANK YOU. You have helped restore the quality of life I once knew.*
Now that I have retired, I am at home alone much of the day. That means that silence is my daily companion. For several years, I hated silence because my ears rang so loudly and instead of being calm I became tense and stressed. About three years ago I read about Arches tinnitus pills and in desperation tried them. I didn't expect relief but was thrilled within months of beginning Arches to find that silence could once again be my friend. I now have very few times when tinnitus is upsetting. When I do, I pop several Arches pills and the problem goes away quickly. Best wishes and thanks for your excellent product.*
I am writing this to let you know how effective your product has been for me. Please feel free to publish this for other people suffering with tinnitus to read. They are more than welcome to send me email with questions about my experience with your product.
Here's my story: I served in the U.S. Army for six years. Three of those years, I served as an Infantryman. During those three years I was exposed to extremely loud noises. I was a gunner on a 4.2" mortar crew.
I know that several times I missed plugging my ears before the high explosive round went downrange. No, I didn't wear earplugs (shame on me). It wasn't long after I got out of the army that I noticed (especially when it was quiet) a terrible ringing in my left ear. It would come on like someone putting one those tuning forks next to your ear.
It got so bad at times it would make me think I was "losing it." I had no idea what it was. I lived with it until I was introduced to your product, Tinnitus Formula. I've taken 4 pills every day for over a year now and I have only experienced two or three episodes of ringing that were very mild.
The Tinnitus Formula literally stopped the episodes within the month I started taking it.
Your product is truly amazing! Thanks a lot! I've just recently started taking the Tinnitus Stress Formula and the B-12 lozenges. They are a great compliment to the Tinnitus Formula. I've found that stress really does aggravate my tinnitus. I'm looking forward to a life completely free of tinnitus thanks to you and your product.*
Hi Barry, Thanks for being so prompt in sending the ATF. Roosevelt is continuing to have good results. Though he has experienced a reduction in the noise level of the ringing, it seems to worsen at night. We're hopeful the longer he stays on the ATF the noise level will continue to steadily decrease. Of course, if the ringing dissipates completely, we're nominating you for the Pulitzer Prize in Medicine. Many thanks." *
"I suffer from Meniere's Disease. I have been taking your Tinnitus Formula for approximately 2 years. About 2 months ago I started receiving your new formula with zinc. Before using your original formula my Vertigo attacks were quite severe. Once I started taking your original formula my attacks lessened in their severity. However, since the new formula with zinc I have not had a single Vertigo attack. Both my personal and professional life has returned to normal. Thank you for an excellent product and keep up the good work." *
I was about to place another order for your product when I received your e-mail. I was diagnosed with Meniere's Disease about 7-8 years ago and frankly I thought I was going to go completely out of my mind with the noise. I learned over the years to deal with the noise by sheer effort because I was told there wasn't a cure or any way to help with the problem. After browsing the "information highway", I found articles that dealt with hearing aids that help mask the noise, and I also found your web site. After doing some research on ginkgo (I already knew about the powers of garlic) I thought I would give your product a try. Because of allergies I take an antihistamine which helps with fluid build-up in my sinuses and inner ear. So by taking the antihistamine at night and the ATF during the day and evening, my experience has been a positive one. The ringing has not completely gone but there has been a noticeable reduction of sound.*
