    Hearing problems can be really annoying, and worrying. I have a lot of trouble hearing, and doctors / specialists all say I am fine... I've been reading up, and it seems like dairy might have a link to ear health. #citationneeded

    Sorry that you are having hearing issues and that the doctors are not fixing you up.

    Hmmm...that makes sense in a way as people say that dairy can cause sinus issues/mucus production. Many people say their stuffiness clears up when they cut dairy. Given all the sinuses/nose-ear-throat area connects up and interacts etc that might be spot on. Definitely something to consider. Thanks!

    Do you have any regular (as in frequent) sinus symptoms? Post nasal drip, congestion, anything like that? I was told by a doctor that if I can keep my sinuses clear, my hearing will improve because my ear drums were getting sucked in by the pressure in my sinuses. I think using the neti pot regularly (while obnoxious, it is more effective than any other saline rinse mechanism I've tried) helps me. I have less ringing in my ears when I use it.

    Anyway, if you do have any noticeable sinus issues, that might indicate that the ear condition could be improved, either by diet or treating your schnozz.

    3 sips = drunk
    4 sips = hospital

    a sip being far less than a mouthful...kind of like when you sip a hot drink so you don't burn your tongue.

    she found this out when she was 17 on a school trip to Poland. Took one shot of vodka and ended up in the hospital with alcohol poisoning/getting her stomach pumped/almost dying.

    Hey Jon! First off, K looks amazing and you are a sexy beast! You look like a guy I used to crush on back in college.

    Guess who works for an audiologist? Moi! Pretty much anything can cause hearing loss: environment, diet, autoimmune disorders, parents with autoimmune disorders, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, you name it. When we have vets come in for an evaluation, we will do the testing, but as long as they can prove the hearing loss came from their active duty service, we refer them to the VA.

    I used to get ear infections REALLY easily. As in, guaranteed to get a screamer (where you're lying on the floor screaming and whimpering from the pain) at least once a year and get an infection at least 3 times a year. The doc said it was because my ears produced too much wax, and because a part of my ear canal never straightened out the way it should have, so the wax would become impacted. I have minor hearing loss, and it's attributed to all the ear infections. Oddly enough, going primal helped (no more screamers, still got a yearly ear infection), but sulfite/ dairy free seems to be the winner. My ears aren't even producing too much wax anymore.
    Apparently, it's somewhat interesting to watch me drink. One drink, I'm fine. Two drinks, everything is funny. THree drinks, everything is funny and about sex. Four drinks, I'm either passed out asleep or I've withdrawn from the crowd and gone to a dark place in my head. Needless to say, I tend to stop with 2-3 drinks.

    You're welcome When I read about the correlation between diet and eye sight it was pretty mind-blowing, and I was really interested to get my eye sight checked. The optician couldnt believe that there was an improvement in my vision at the age of 31! He said he's never seen it before

    Anyway, I figure if diet can improve eye sight then why not ear health?

    I just did a little search and read that high oestrogen levels can damage the bones of the inner ear, causing otosclerosis and impaired hearing. But I guess you'll need to find out the root cause of your problem before you take a measured approach...
    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    I also got really bad ear infections when I was younger. I had one so bad when I was 6 that I had to be admitted to the hospital for. My doctor thought it was appendicitis, I was grabbing at my sides and throwing up everywhere. Apparently, it was a really bad ear infection that was about to turn into vertigo. I also produce a lot of wax and I have a mild hearing loss in the upper registers that does not require assisted devices. My sister in SC is now profoundly deaf and looking into Cochlear Implants. Her ENT and audiologist were able to trace it back to dad's MS(parent with an a autoimmune disorder).
