Tinnitus Q&A: What Foods Make Tinnitus Worse?

Glenn Education Leave a Comment

Welcome to a new episode of my Ask Me Anything about tinnitus video series where I answer your most pressing questions about tinnitus (and related conditions like hyperacusis)!

For those new to the blog, my name is Glenn Schweitzer, and I’m author of the book Rewiring Tinnitus. I also write a monthly tinnitus column at Healthyhearing.com, and for the last 8 years, I’ve worked with more than 1000 tinnitus patients 1-on-1 from all over the world as a tinnitus coach, helping people to habituate as quickly as possible to find lasting relief from the ringing in their ears.

In today’s video, I’m going to answer an important question that I get asked very often by my tinnitus coaching clients: Can your diet and appetite affect your tinnitus? And by extension – are there foods that make tinnitus worse or better?

In this video I discuss:

  • How your diet can affect your tinnitus
  • Can certain foods cause tinnitus spike?
  • How tinnitus distress can make it very hard to eat
  • How appetite can negatively affect tinnitus
  • Why I believe that eating enough is more important than eating (or avoiding) specific foods
  • Specific foods and dietary factors that can make tinnitus worse or better
  • Does it ever make sense to avoid all potentially triggering foods?
  • How to identify your unique dietary triggers
  • Can triggering foods be reintroduced safely after habituation has occurred?
