The very best proof that something you eat can cause a
symptom you experience is not a medical study or even your
doctor --- it is you.  In my case, after years of wondering
why my
tinnitus flares up seemingly for no reason, I
stumbled on a connection by accident.

I do not have a sweet tooth. In fact, I can go for over a year
without any desire whatsoever for anything sweet
. Then,
last summer during a visit to New York, I indulged my wife's
desire to feel like a kid again and eat all our childhood
snacks. In her case, that meant multiple cones of Mr. Softie
Ice Cream.  Of course, I couldn't let her eat Mr; Softie ice
cream alone, so I joined in, for solidarity only of course.

After the second day of Mr. Softee cones, I noticed that my
ears were screaming in a way I had not experienced. The
ringing was beyond intense, sort of like a 5 alarm fire siren.


It was then that, forgive the pun, the bells went off in my
head. The sugar had triggered the tinnitus.

Why had the sugar triggered my tinnitus?

There Are Many Causes of Tinnitus and Candida is One


The most common cause of tinnitus is exposure to loud
noise.
It is caused when the tiny hairs in the inner ear are
flattened, much like someone s

People who suffer from tinnitus have started to notice the
strong connection between the occurrence or the worsening
of the tinnitus and eating sugar. Real life experience does
matter, even if the scientific proof is not quite robust yet.

Here is just a sample of the communities across the web that
have shared the observation of the connection between
tinnitus and sugar.



Candida albicans is opportunistic and hearty. The fungus
exists mainly in your gastrointestinal tract and urinary tract.
But it can and does escape into your blood stream. From
there, it can go anywhere. Once it enters your bloodstream,
candida is referred to as "candidemia".

A 2009 study from the Department of Infectious Diseases
and LIM 54, University of São Paulo, Brazil compared the
candida strains found in different parts of the bodies of 63
people. They discovered that 42% of the candida strains
found in different parts of the body were identical,
suggesting that the candida, typically found in the gut, is
responsible for candidemia in the blood stream.

Once candida enters your bloodstream, and rides along the
river of blood, it can enter your ears. There, the fungus can
cause tinnitus.


Candida Infections of the Ear Are Increasing



































Otomycosis is a fungal infection of the external ear that was
first reported by doctors in 1884. The ear is warm and
humid, an ideal environment for fungal growth.


The incidence of candida ear infections is growing. A 2011
study from Bangalore observed that "In the recent years
there has been an increase in the incidence [of candida
related ear infections] as a result of possibly huge number of
immunocompromised patients".


Common symptoms of otymycosis include itching in your
ears, ear pain, discharge, blocking,  decreased hearing and
tinnitus.


What Can You Do To Lower Levels of Candida?

If the candida infection is severe enough to cause symptoms
such as discharge from your ear or a loss of hearing, you
need to see a doctor. Your doctor may prescribe anti-fungal
medications.

Antibiotics will not help. Antibiotics only kill bacteria, not
fungus. In fact, taking antibiotics may make the candida
infection worse. Bacteria and candida are rival species in the
microbiome environment of your gut. They compete for food
and space. Killing off bacteria with antibiotics would in some
cases improve the chances for candida to dominate the gut
environment.

A 1987 study showed that treating lab mice with antibiotics
simply increased  the amount of candida in their guts. The
study, entitled "Factors affecting colonization and
dissemination of Candida albicans from the gastrointestinal
tract of mice" showed that treatment with antibiotics can
raise the candida counts to over 10,000 times higher.


But what may help is changing your diet. The basic strategy
is to starve the candida of its favorite food --- sugar.



Foods to Avoid to Lower Candida Levels


The obvious choise here is to avoid sugar itself. On the "off"
list are table sugar as well as molasses, syrups, desserts,
cakes, ice creams, sorbets.

In addition to these foods, you shuld also avoid refined
carbohydrates including white rice, potatoes, white bread,
white flour (such as you might find in gravies or other
sauces) and most crunchy snacks.


You would do well to also avoid fruit that is naturally high in
sugar such as bananas, grapes and berries.


You should also add foods and spices that help to lower or
stabilize blood sugar
such as cinnamon.
