Have you or do you know of anyone on the RAW ever getting rid of Hypothyroid and/or Tinnitus?
Would love to hear any stories if you have them.
Love Lynn xx:):)

others on this board have had good luck with raw and hypothyroidism, also coconut oil is said to help reduce symptoms. I have not heard of anyone curing or lessening tinnitus. I would be curious to see other responses, as I have crickets in my head, too. lol

Here's a recent thread on the topic:
If you search out thyroid and/or hypothyroid you'll get others too.

Here's another great thread on this:

Do you have hypothyroidism or Hashimoto's? They are 2 different conditions, though they both produce an under-active thyroid (amongst other things)
I have Hashimoto's and after 3 yrs+ raw, my condition remains unchanged. In fact, I tried reducing my med(Armour Thyroid) and my condition got worse!
That being said, in trying to live with the cards I have been dealt, I feel SOOOOO much better on raw than I did before and many of the 'side effects' of being hypothyroid I do not experience nearly as much as I used to. So, though I am not cured, I certianly think the lifestyle has helped me.
Tinutis...that I don't know. Hopefully someone will be able to help you with that!

I was also wondering about the tinnitus thing. I believe I have it (a constant high-pitched ringing noise in my ears). I am certainly hoping for the best that RAW will heal this, if it is indeed tinnitus or whatever it is. It's really annoying.

Yep thats lovely tinnitus, and how annoying is it...especially at night when you want to drop off to sleep. Im so hoping it goes when I am toxic free thanks to raw!
Good luck xxx:)

Hi everyone!I´m new at the forum.I was searching about the link between raw food and tinnitus and found this forum,and since I´m very interested in the raw food diet I thought of registering.
I have developed tinnitus like a month ago or so and I´m a little bit worried about it, since it seems impossible to reverse it and it´s really annoying.
The doctor told me everything was fine with my body and that it simply would go away, which I don´t really believe.Anyway, since I´m aware of the espectacular power of the raw food diet reversing health conditions, I started doing some research about it. I haven´t found much , except this inspiring and optimistic testimony of Don Bennet, who is a raw foodist, here´s the link:
I´m about to start increasing raw foods in my diet and I would like to make it a highly raw diet, and I really hope it has a good effect on myu tinnitus.

I have very mild tinnitus. It seems less present when I am on raw but I don't know if it is true tinnitus even though I can remember the noise from when I was quite little. Maybe it's sinuses and they don't play up as much when I am raw ... ??
At the risk of sounding like a broken record (repeating the same thing), one (of many possible) cause(s) of tinnitus is mercury in the central nervous system.
Google 'tinnitus mercury' and see for yourself.
I suffer from mild tinnitus (have for decades) and whilst I do have heavy metal toxicity issues, I suspect my tinnitus is also partly due to hearing damage as a consequence of exposure to loud noise from industrial machinery, in my former career.
The funny thing is, although you have now stated that the hypothyroid and the tinnitus are experienced separately by 2 different people, mercury can nonetheless also disrupt endocrine (and thus thyroid) function.
Food for thought...
