Tinnitus 911 Scam

Tinnitus 911 Is a Scam! – EXPOSED In This Review

Tinnitus 911 is said to be a "cure all" to tinnitus, but is it really? Will this supplement really perform miracles and get rid of that annoying ringing sound in your ears... or is true what some people are saying... that Tinnitus 911 is a scam?

They say that 90% of tinnitus treatments out there do not work, but will this one finally do the trick? Is this the treatment you have been waiting for like they tell you?

Well… In this review I'm going to be going over everything you need to know about this particular supplement. Will it work? It might, it might not. There is no doubt that this is a very overhyped product that isn't the miracle is claimed to be, however there are some upsides to it and some users will likely see positive effects after taking it.

In this short review I'll cover what exactly it is, some of the claims made and red flag is raised, I'll go over each of the ingredients, what real users are saying about it, complaints and more.

Tinnitus 911

What Is Tinnitus 911?

So as you are probably already well aware, Tinnitus 911 is a supplement that is intended to treat tinnitus.


What is tinnitus? It's is something else you are probably well aware of, or at least I would assume so, but it is a condition that involves ringing in the ears when there is not any auditory sound present. Basically it is your ears playing tricks on you and in some cases can be incredibly hard to deal with.


The reason I am reviewing Tinnitus 911 in the first place is because there are very bold claims made about this supplement. It is promoted as a sort of "cure all" and this is very hard to believe since tinnitus can have many different causes.


Overall, based on my research I think that this supplement does have the potential to work for some people, but it is not something that I am recommending and you will see why throughout this review.

Claims Made

There are probably several different video presentations out there promoting Tinnitus 911. Maybe you came across one or maybe you didn't. 


The promotional video I came across was presented by some guy named "Charlie Gaines" who supposedly suffered some tragic story about how he lost everything and then stumbled upon some 100% natural cure to tinnitus. He tells you that everything in the story is true, but this is a lie in of itself.


I'm not going to discuss the entire sales pitch and everything that was said in the ridiculously long video presentation, but basically he claims that this 100% natural cure you came across works flawlessly and can even work with in a few days.


Also, in addition to fixing your tinnitus problem, it also reduces or even eliminates degenerative brain problems such as dementia.


But as I said, when he tells you that the story is true he is lying. 


Red Flags


There are a heck of a lot of red flags throughout the promotional video and if you watch to yourself I am sure you agree with me on this. It just seems a little bit too good to be true and is definitely a bit unbelievable.


Also, I did some thinking around and found out that "Charlie Gaines" himself is actually not who he says he is. I've reviewed similar overhyped products with ridiculous sales pitch is in the past, so I knew what to look for. I ended up doing a reverse Google image search for the man showed in the video presentation and found that is actually nothing more than a stock photo that anyone can purchase online…

Tinnitus 911 Charlie Gaines

In other words, this is NOT "Charlie Gaines".


After figuring this out for myself, I found that they actually tell you this in the disclaimer at the bottom of the sales page. As you can see below, they actually tell you that Charlie Gaines is just a pen name…

So what can you believe and what can you believe? Or the ingredients in this supplement even going to do anything for you?


Well… Let's take a look…

A Look at the Ingredients

You can see a screenshot I took off the ingredient label below…

tinnitus-911-ingredients

Will these ingredients fixture tinnitus once and for all? I'll go over each of them individually… One thing you will notice is that pretty much all of these ingredients are packed with antioxidants. This is good because tinnitus is sometimes caused by damaged structural and functional cellular components due to free radicals, which antioxidants fight against.


  • Vitamin C (60mg)
    • We have all heard of vitamin C before, but is it going to be the cure? Well, I did find a reference to study that shows patients taking an antioxidant rich cocktail of natural ingredients, including vitamin C, was able to reduce tinnitus.
    • Vitamin C is needed for a lot of things in your body, some of which include the formation of blood vessels, muscle and cartilage. It is also a powerful antioxidant and its antioxidant powers may be what make it somewhat effective as a tinnitus treatment.
  • Vitamin B--6 (5mg)
    • Vitamin B-6 it is important for cognitive development, immune system function, protein metabolism in the heck of a lot more. According to the National Institutes of Health it is involved with over 100 enzyme involved reactions
    • There is some controversy surrounding whether or not it helps. People on the Tinnitus Talk forum claim that it can possibly make some people's tinnitus worse. It it is rare, but I guess some people can have negative reactions if they take too much and have to limit themselves
  • Niacin (2.5mg)
    • This it is just a fancy name for it vitamin B3, which helps with healthy cholesterol levels, is good for your skin, and is important for proper brain function.
    • The reason this could be an effective treatment for tendinitis is because it helps to increase blood flow to small areas like the inner ear.
  • Folic Acid (100mcg)
    • Folic acid helps in the production of new cells and is very important for red blood cell production.
    • I did find a bit of information about how this benefits tinnitus, but the source was not very reliable and seemed to be too focused on promoting another tinnitus supplement. But of course this doesn't mean that it does not work or help.
  • B-12 (100mcg)
    • Vitamin B 12 is something that I was able to find some scientific information on relating to tinnitus. There was a study of 139 elderly patients, of which 58.3% had tinnitus. Of those who had tinnitus there was found to be a significantly lower amount of vitamin B12 levels, suggesting that deficiency in this vitamin could lead to this horrible condition.
    • On the downside, this only provides you with 100mcg per dose, which although is more than the daily recommended value, really isn't all that much because this vitamin is verily poorly absorbed. Some people recommend taking as much as 1000mcg per day just so that you can absorb the recommended value.
  • Garlic (150mg)
    • The idea behind putting garlic in this supplement is that it will help improve your condition by increasing blood flow to the cochlea, which could be the cause of your tinnitus
  • Hibiscus Flower (100mg)
    • Hibiscus is packed with loads of antioxidants, it helps lower blood pressure, boosts your liver health, however… I can't find anything directly related to how can help with tinnitus
    • That said, the fact that is packed with antioxidants alone should have a positive effect
  • Olive Leaf 18% Extract (125mg)
    • Olive leaf extract can help boost your immune system, worked as an anti-inflammatory and then antioxidant, and is even said to help fight herpes
    • One of the referenced articles I looked into was on MedlinePlus.gov, where it was suggested that it could help treat tinnitus. However, they suggested that it be applied topically and I don't know how well it would work being ingested.
  • Hawthorne Berry 1.8% Extract (175mg)
    • While I can't find any direct evidence on this ingredient relating to tinnitus, it does have a lot of antioxidants in it so it does have potential
  • Buchu Leaves 4:1 Concentrate (25mg)
    • Buchu leaves can be used to treat inflammation, urinary tract infections, and even STD's.
    •  There it is definitely a lack of scientific information on this particular ingredient, so there is not all that much I say.
  • Uva Ursi 4:1 Concentrate (15mg)
    • I wasn't able to find any good information on this ingredient either, but one thing, which was rather fondly, that I came across was that taking too high of doses can actually cause tinnitus. I found this information on ScienceDirect.com
  • Juniper Berry (15mg)
    • another ingredient common in folk medicines - used in treatment of a variety of conditions - infections, digestion issues, skin deformations, joint pain, etc
    • often sold in the essential oil form and did find some information on how it can possible help to relieve tinnitus
    • Juniper Berry is in ingredient that is common in folk medicines. It is used to treat a variety of conditions including infections, digestive issues, skin deformations, joint pain, and more.
    • This it is often sold in the essential oil form and that did find some information on it being able to relieve tinnitus, but I'm not sure how well it will work being digested.
  • Green Tea 50% Extract (15mg)
    • We all know what green tea is and you are probably well aware of its powerful antioxidant benefits, which are often said to help fight against aging and can even promote a healthier mind.
    • With lots of antioxidants this ingredient is something that is nice to see and could potentially have a positive effect


Will These Ingredients Work?


While most of the ingredients included in this supplement are either proven to work to some extent, or at least have potential, this is not the "cure all" miracle supplement that is promoted as.


One thing that you have to realize is that many people, who are suffering from tinnitus, are already benefiting from many of these ingredients. Vitamin C, vitamin B6, niacin, folic acid, vitamin B12, garlic, and green tea are all things that many people probably already get enough of… Yet you still might have tinnitus. So what's the deal?


I'm not saying that this supplement is not going to work, but I am saying that it is overhyped and isn't going to be a sure way to cure tinnitus.

 

Side Effects

Luckily there aren't really any side effects that are going to have to worry about. This is a 100% natural supplement and there are no "crazy" ingredients included that are going to make your body wonder what the heck is going on.


All in all, this is a very mild supplement.


Of course I do have to say that you should always talk to your doctor first before taking something like this however.

What Real Users Are Saying

What are people who have actually taken the supplement saying about it? Are they all saying that it has cured there tonight is in that is the greatest thing ever?


Unfortunately… The answer is no.


This supplement is actually sold in a number of places, including on Amazon. On Amazon I skimmed through the reviews and found that many people are saying to avoid it, calling it things like a scam and an "expensive hoax"…

There are some people that claim that has worked for them, but all in all… The reviews are not that great on this product.

Beware of Fake Reviews!

Which brings me to my next point… Beware of the fake reviews!


I came across quite a few different fake reviews out there claiming that this is the greatest tonight's cure to ever exist. However, the people making these reviews are just promoting it so that they can make a quick buck.


Take for example the YouTube video I found below. The woman in this video claims that Tinnitus 911 is the greatest and that it cured her tinnitus, yet she is actually a paid actress that is available for hire on the website Fiverr (a digital freelance marketplace)…

And this is just one example… There are plenty more out there.

Scam or Not?

Is it a scam like some of the other tinnitus products I've reviewed?... like for example Tonaki Tinnitus Protocol?


I would not call Tinnitus 911 an outright scam, because I do believe it has the potential to work for some people. It is packed with a lot of good ingredients that are very high in antioxidants among other things that could possibly have a positive effect on tinnitus.


The "scammy" part about it all is how it is being promoted. It is promoted in a very misleading way and giving people false hope. That is why I am warning people about it. It depends on how you look at things but in some ways this is a scam in my opinion.

Why I Don't Really Recommend It

Not only do I not really recommended because of the deceptive promotion going on for this product, but it is also rather expensive and without a doubt overpriced.


For example, on the official website it costs $69.95 for one bottle, but when you order four bottles the price per bottle drops down to $49.95.


How is it even possible that they have this much room to move the price around… Dropping it down from $69.95 to $49.95? The answer is that it was massively overpriced in the first place.


That said, if you are desperate and want to give Tinnitus 911 a chance and see if it works for you, you can purchase Tinnitus 911 on the official website here

Is Ring Ease a Scam

Ring Ease – Scam or Real Cure for Tinnitus? [Truth Exposed]

Ring Ease is supposedly some miracle cure for tinnitus… Or at least that is what they lead you to believe. But is it really all that great? Can this 100% natural supplement really "quickly and permanently" cure your tinnitus like you are told? Or is it possible that Ring Ease is a scam that is just going to be a waste of your money?

It is no secret that there are a lot of scam health products out there, many that are claimed to be cures for tinnitus. In fact, I have reviewed several other tinnitus scams on this very website, Tinnitus 911 and Tonaki Tinnitus Protocol being two that come to mind.

It is completely logical that you are suspicious of Ring Ease. Any supplement like this that claims to be a "cure all" and will work for anyone is a major red flag. How can one supplement cure tinnitus for everyone if there are multiple causes of tinnitus? It just makes no sense and I knew after coming across this product that I had to do a little investigating and write a review.

In this review I'll be going over all you need to know before hand. If you were thinking about possibly purchasing this supplement, you are definitely going to want to read over my review beforehand.

Ring Ease Review

Name: Ring Ease

Manufacturer: Life Now Naturals

Type: Tinnitus treatment

Price: Varies

Recommended?: Absolutely NOT

Ring Ease

What Is Ring Ease?

Okay... Well you probably already know what is, but for those of you reading this who might not be completely aware, what is Ring Ease exactly?... Or maybe I should say what is Ring Ease claimed to be?


Ring Ease is a 100% natural supplement that is said to cure tinnitus for anyone who suffers from it. Furthermore, it is promoted as a way to "quickly and permanently" cure tinnitus, which is one heck of a claim to make.


Now what exactly is tinnitus? Tinnitus is a term used to describe constant or at least semi-constant ringing or buzzing in the years. Basically it is the perception of sound without there actually being any auditory sound going into the ears. It is your ears playing tricks on you and is actually extremely common.


From the research I have done I have found that one in five people have tinnitus, although in most cases it is not all that bad. I myself have tinnitus, but it certainly isn't to the extent that some people have it where it keeps them up at night.


According to MayoClinic it is often caused by age-related hearing loss and loud noise exposure, but it cannot be caused by a number of different things, even medications. In fact, I even found a study that has found a relationship between people's emotional conditions and tinnitus (stress).


But anyways… The bottom line is that tinnitus can be caused by number of different things and that Ring Ease claims to be a cure no matter what. If this is true then this product really is a miracle. Tinnitus can be an absolutely horrible in life changing condition that some people go for years of suffering from without ever finding a cure.


But does it really work and should you buy it? Well… I'll get into this in a second, but first let's go over the sales pitch.

The Sales Pitch

Maybe you watched the video presentation, maybe you didn't. If you did then this ridiculous sales pitch is probably what led you to be suspicious of the product and ultimately look into whether or not it is a scam.


The video is presented as a "short but controversial video" with David Smith being the spokesperson. Apparently this David Smith guy's father almost burned to death in his sleep due to tinnitus, but of course now he has perfect hearing without any surgery… All thanks to Ring Ease.


The Ring Ease supplement supposedly comes from Psalm "1700-year-old trick" discovered by Buddhist monks.


David Smith claims that his old doctor friend, Dr. Mathers, new some monks that drink a tea which helps with their hearing… And of course this is some natural miracle hearing treatment. In the video presentation he hints that it is all about this ingredient called "citrus maxima", which I found has a more common name of Pomelo.


He tells you that is all about the bioflavonoids that are found in citrus maxima, which are powerful antioxidants that fight inflammation. 


In addition, ginko biloba, Thai garlic, and magnesium are other special ingredients that are supposedly powerful treatments for tinnitus.


David claims that inflammation is the root cause of tinnitus and other forms of hearing loss. He tells you that all stems from the inflammation of the cochlear nerve and of course all of these exotic ingredients are natural cures/treatments for such inflammation.

Some Red Flags

#1 - Sounds a Bit Too Good To Be True

I think that it is pretty obvious that this all sounds a bit too good to be true. I mean just think about it… This guy's dad almost died in a fire, he goes out on a mission to find a cure and comes across this 100% natural cure that is some ancient secret… And of course it can "quickly and permanently" cure tinnitus.

#2 - Some Ancient "Secret"

I've reviewed quite a bit of health scams in it seems that many of them are promoted as ancient secrets that have since been rediscovered and are now being opened up to the public.


I guess the reason for a sales pitch like this is because it is more intriguing and luring. Who wouldn't want to learn about some ancient hidden secret that has since been uncovered? I sure would.

#3 - Hearing Industry Criticism

Another red flag is all of the criticism of the hearing industry. Throughout the video presentation David calls their latest hearing technology a "gimmick" and says that they don't actually want to help cure your hearing… They just want to keep you hooked on their latest medications/products and profit from you.


Now while this may be true to some extent, and I think most people have some distrust for the medical industry, he takes things a bit too far and makes it seem as if everyone involved in the industry is out to get you. He takes a ridiculous approach to things and is doing so to scare you into purchasing his 100% natural cure-all product… Ring Ease.

#4 - Presentation Might Get Shut Down

Of course the video presentation might get shut down at any second. He tells you that the hearing device industry along with the pharmaceutical industry hate this presentation and are out to shut it down. This is pretty much the same sales pitch I've heard from numerous other scams I have reviewed, including Tonaki Tinnitus Protocol that I mentioned earlier along with others such as Diabetes Destroyer.

#5 - Lacking Proof of Claims 

At one point in the video presentation he claims that this natural supplement has helped secure over 21,000 people all over the world. However… If this is true why is there no proof of this ever happening? And why isn't this receiving more popularity?


I get it, I get it… The medical establishment is trying to shut this operation down and keep it hidden. But seriously… If there really were 21,000 people who were cured from this then you would think there'd be a lot more talk about it all over social media.

#6 - "David Smith"

David Smith, who is supposedly the person behind this all, claims to have a PhD in botany from the University of Idaho, a dad who almost died from tinnitus during a fire, and claims to have the most effective treatment for tinnitus on the market.


But who is this guy really? Unfortunately, I have no idea and there is a good chance he is a completely made up character. There is no verifiable information given on this guy during the video presentation so there's really not all that much I can say here.


All I know is that his story sounds a little bit too good to be true and I have come across many scam products that are promoted under fake, fictitious names.

#7 - Exaggerated Benefits

Throughout the sales pitch he mentions all sorts of studies in talks about how the ingredients he came across have been "statistically significant", but this is a bit misleading. What he doesn't tell you is that being "statistically significant" during a scientific study is much different from what ordinary people would call statistically significant. Basically what I am saying is that being statistically significant and clinically significant are two different things.


Some ingredient may be shown to be statistically significant during a lab study, but this doesn't necessarily mean it will translate into statistically significant results when it comes to human treatment.

#8 - The Company that Manufactures It

The last red flag want to mention is the company that manufactures this product, which is Life Now Naturals. More about this company in a bit, but what you should know now is that there is very little information on this company at all… Which is definitely very worrisome.

Are These Ingredients Really That Special?

The truth is that ginko biloba, citrus maxima, Thai garlic, etc. are not nearly as special in amazing as you are led to believe. What's going on here is the creators of this supplement have taken exotic ingredients that not many people know about, nor have in their diets, and put them in this supplement to make you think that you are missing out on something amazing.


That said, these ingredients are "proven" to work to some extent.


What Science Says


Some of what the spokesperson tells you is true to some extent, he just presents things in a very misleading way.


For example, ginko biloba has been shown to produce "statistically significant" results that were superior to a placebo when tested on groups suffering from cerebrovascular insufficiency, which inflammation has been shown to play a role in.


Inflammation is the cause of many diseases/conditions, or at the very least play some part in them, including asthma, arthritis, sinusitis, etc. However, there is very little information linking inflammation to tinnitus in the information that is out there is lacking.


For example, I actually found one study that seems to say that inflammation is good for tinnitus, which is very strange. The reason is because inflammation produces prostaglandins which have been shown to be helpful. In one study, 8 out of 24 patients receiving a synthetic prostaglandin medication showed improvement in tinnitus while the placebo group did not.


But there is definitely a lack of studies in this area and most of what I have found shows that inflammation worsens tinnitus, as you will hear from many people experiencing this condition. Even on arthritis.org they talk about how anti-inflammatory foods are good and even mention Thai garlic as being such, as well as a powerful antioxidant.


When it comes to ginko biloba, I found a pretty interesting double-blind study (link here) of people with tinnitus. In this study 360 people were given 50 mg of ginko extract three times daily for 12 weeks and another 360 people were given a placebo. At the end of the study 34 pull from the group taking the extract said their tinnitus had reduced while 35 people taking the placebo said it reduced… Which means there was no real effect in this particular study. Both groups were claiming their tinnitus was reduced.


I have read that ginko biloba can decrease tinnitus severity when it is the result of cerebral insufficiency, but of course this all depends on the cause of tinnitus… Meaning that it definitely is not a "cure all".


And as far as "citrus maxima" goes, a.k.a. pomelo, there really isn't anything worth mentioning.


What you should take away from this section is that, while some of these ingredients do have the potential to benefit and/or treat tinnitus to some extent, they are not nearly as effective as their claimed to be. The promotional material for Ring Ease it is extremely misleading and only the information that supports the case of this being a "cure all" is given. 

Side Effects to Worry About?

There aren't any side effects that really need to be worried about, although you should always consult with a doctor before taking any sort of supplement like this.


The ingredients are all natural and basically all this supplement does is aids your body as an antioxidant. It is not a drug that is going to produce extreme results in any manner.

The Bottom Line: Does Ring Ease Work?

So does Ring Ease work? Is it worth purchasing?


Well.... This all depends on your particular situation. It all depends on what exactly is causing your tinnitus and the severity of your tinnitus. For many people out there this supplement is going to have little to no effect, unfortunately. That said, it does have the potential to produce positive results for some people, although I would not count on it.

The Company Behind It

Earlier I mentioned that the company behind this supplement was a red flag and now I'm going to go into more detail on this.


The company that manufactures Ring Ease is known as Life Now Naturals, or at least that is what it states on the bottle. The official website for this company can be found at getlifenownaturals.com. This is the only website I can find associated with this company, although there is not much information out there.


On the website it states that the real name behind this company is:


New Life Organics LLC

30 N Gould Street, Suite R

Sheridan, WY 82801, United States


And the return address shown is:

3420 Cavalier Trail, STE E, Cuyohoga Falls,

Oh 44224


The reason I am talking about the return address is because there is another company called Nutrify Health that shares the same return address… And this other company also has little to no information about them.


Thing else worth mentioning is that the About Us page on the official website provides one small paragraph of information that tells you just about nothing at all. It just says that they are a company that is made up of professionals that make natural health products… That is it. That is all we know about this company. And as far as I see they only make two products… Ring Ease and a Turmeric Circumin supplement


So can you really trust this place at all? I mean, I don't know about you, but when it comes to supplements like this that you have to ingest I would like to be a little more confident in the company behind it all. There are a lot of supplement scams out there and when you don't have a third party like the FDA looking over everything you have to be extra careful.

Beware of Fake Reviews

Upon doing my research I came across a number of reviews out there for Ring Ease talking about how great this product is and why you should buy it. However, these are all fake and all the people writing these reviews are just promoting the product to try to make money. This is not unusual at all, and no better how bad the product is you will always find good reviews out there from people trying to make money.


In fact, I can't find a single review out there that seems to be legitimate. Not a single review that seems to come from someone who has actually tried this supplement out. All of them that I have found appear to be quite obviously fake.

Conclusion - Scam or Not?

I don't think I will be so harsh as to call this a complete scam, but I would definitely say that there is a lot of "scammy" activity going on. Ring Ease is a great example of another health product that is promoted in a very deceptive and misleading way. It is promoted as a "cure all" that can  "quickly and permanently" cure your tinnitus but there is no proof of this being the case and based on the ingredient profile, it doesn't make any sense that this would be true.


While Ring Ease does possess the potential to have positive effects on tinnitus, it is definitely not a product that I'm going to be recommending and I certainly do not think it is worth the price. Unfortunately this is just another over-hyped product that doesn't live up to the claims made.



I hope you enjoyed my honest review here and found it helpful. Please share this review to help spread the truth before others buy into this scammy supplement after being lured in with misleading information.

The Medicine Man Hearing Remedy SCAM by Ben Carter – EXPOSED!

Medicine Man Hearing Remedy Ben Carter

Is the Medicine Man Hearing Remedy by Ben Carter a scam?

The Medicine Man Hearing Remedy is supposedly some natural cure for hearing loss that was developed from an old Navajo recipe. It is claimed to be able to permanently restore hearing loss in as little as two weeks, which sounds quite ridiculous, but this is what you are told.

So is this the real deal or is this all a scam? I am guessing you are probably suspicious of what you are told based on how you are reading my review right now. The truth is that this is not the miracle worker that it is said to be. While there could potentially be some hearing benefits to this old remedy, it certainly is not going to cure every single form of hearing loss within just a couple weeks… or ever for that matter.

In this review I will be exposing Medicine Man Hearing Remedy for what it really is… Which is nothing special. If you are possibly thinking about buying into this because you, or someone you know, suffers from hearing loss, then you are definitely going to want to read this over and think again.


Medicine Man Hearing Remedy Review

The man behind it all is name to Ben Carter, and he claims to be a semi retired aerospace engineer who went on a mission to find a natural cure to hearing loss after his wife Sarah got hit by a car (survived) due to hearing loss in not being able to hear it coming.

The story goes that Ben’s grandfather cured his hearing loss back in the early 1900s with a Navajo remedy that his grandmother got from a medicine man. And according to Ben this is a breakthrough in hearing loss that you won’t find anywhere else. You won’t hear from the doctors, from the pharmaceutical industry, or anyone. It is a all natural treatment that has been used for centuries and has supposedly helped over 33,477 people cure their hearing loss.

This is what you are told… But this is more than likely mostly a lie, or at the very least extremely misleading. Some of the red flags that I came across while doing my research, which you should be aware of, include the following…


Red Flags

#1 – Sounds a Bit Too Good To Be True

Obviously the whole background story just sounds too good to be true. Of course there was a near-death situation which led to Ben’s quest to find a natural cure what she found from an ancient Navajo remedy. I suppose this background story could be true, but it sounds a little too much like a fairytale to me. A definite red flag.

#2 – The “Big Bad Medical Industry” Sales Pitch

Right on cue, you are told that the medical industry knows about this secret cure but they are doing everything in their power to keep it from getting released to the general public. Why? Well… Because of course they want to keep selling their hearing loss devices, performing surgery, etc. so that they can make money. This is something I’ve heard from many scammy products… some that come to mind include Regrow Hair Protocol and Memory Repair Protocol.

Ben goes on to say that they are even doing everything they can to shut down his website so that this information does not leak out…

While it may be true to some extent that the pharmaceutical industry is greedy, they do a lot of groundbreaking research and genuinely good things. It is an all bad as they try to lead you to believe. And this is coming from someone who is a huge advocate of natural treatments/remedies.

#3 – Who Is This Ben Carter Guy?

Okay… So this entire remedy is based around this Ben Carter guy. But who is Ben Carter? Well… I have no idea. There is no sort of information given that I am able to verify with my own research. He very well could be a paid actor with a fake name. I have seen this many times before with other health related scams I have reviewed.


How It Works

What you are told is that there are these “hair cells” that line the cochlea of the ear. These are mechanical receptors that turn soundwave vibrations into electrical signals, which then travel to the brain and allow you to hear. Believe it or not… What he tells you about the hair cells and all of this stuff is true. Loss of hair cells, or damage to hair cells, is a major cause of hearing loss and this is something that more and more research is coming out on.

There is a good article published in The Harvard Gazette about how replacing damaged hair cells may be an effective treatment for hearing loss. In another article published by the National Institutes of Health talks about 90% of all hearing loss cases are caused by damaged hair cells or auditory nerve cells.

So this is true… And it is also true that there is much more research that needs to be done before any treatment for the regeneration of hair cells becomes public. What Ben tells you is that this could take 20 years and that there are already natural ingredients out there that can help heal and strengthen what hair cells you still have, which will bring you back to normal hearing.

Some More Red Flags

While much of what he says is true, there is no proof that these natural ingredients he is promoting will restore hearing function… And certainly not any proof this will happen in a short period of time as you are told.

Throughout the video presentation there are no citations given to the research he talks about and I was not able to find any proof on my own.

This is obviously another major red flag because anyone can say anything they want to, but without any proof who knows whether what they are saying is true or not.

If you don’t already know, the Medicine Man Hearing Remedy is an e-book that is over 100 pages in length. The different section of this book include information as follows…

  • Intro
  • Anatomy of the ear
  • Hearing loss
  • Treatment
  • The Navajo way of healing
  • Nutrition
  • Prevention
  • Apps for hearing loss
  • Resources
  • 15 day action plan

Basically what you are getting here is a ton of information, much of which you will probably skim over without really reading, and nothing all that great. Much of the information given is very general and could easily be found for free online.

The whole point of this remedy is the diet plan that you can supposedly hop onto cure your hearing loss, but this is also general and certainly not some “secret” as he leads you to believe it is.


The Ingredients of This Secret Recipe

This entire remedy is based around some ancient Navajo secret recipe for curing hearing loss. So what are the ingredients that are in the secret recipe? Well… No one really knows. There is no information on this and apparently even in the e-book you are not given this secret Navajo recipe.

There is information in the e-book about the Navajo way of healing but these secret ingredients are never revealed. It is just more general nutrition advice.


Conclusion – Scam?

There likely it is no secret Navajo hearing loss remedy as you are told. This is likely just part of the deceptive sales pitch that is put on by this “Ben Carter” character. In fact, I was actually reading reviews of this e-book online and one person, who claims to be a Navajo themselves, says that they have never heard of any of this.

While there is some good information provided in the book, and you could potentially see some hearing improvement from the “remedy”, this is certainly a big disappointment. The Medicine Man Hearing Remedy it is not the miracle worker that is said to be.

Will you see any improvement from this? I suppose it is possible in some cases, but definitely do not get your hopes up in definitely do not expect it to be a cure for every single form of hearing loss that works within two weeks.

Obviously I am not going to recommend anyone buy into this, but you are more than welcome to if you choose. I am not a fan of the incredibly misleading and very scammy marketing tactics used here. Who knows what is actually true and what is false. One thing is for sure, much of what you are told is false and very little is true.

But anyways… I hope you enjoyed my review and found it helpful. Please share this post to help spread the truth and save others from this nasty little scam. Also, leave any questions or comments down below and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can 🙂

If you have tried this secret remedy for yourself then I would also really appreciate it if you left your review down below. Hearing from someone who has actually tried something is always good,

Does Tinnitus 911 Really Work? – NO… And I’ll Explain Why

Does Tinnitus 911 Really Work

Tinnitus 911 is supposedly some miracle product that can cure your tinnitus in no time… But of course things aren’t always as they are said to be. Does Tinnitus 911 really work and should you be buying this product? Or is this all just a scam that you should be avoiding?

Well to answer that… NO it does not work, or at least it probably won’t work for most people. There is a slim chance that this product could improve your tinnitus or even possibly eliminate it, but the overwhelming majority of people out there probably will see no difference at all. The crazy thing is that this even has the potential to possibly make your tinnitus worse than it is. How crazy is that?… A product that is supposed to eliminate tinnitus that could potentially make it works…

But anyways, in this review I will be going over what this product is supposed to do, the ingredients and why it simply isn’t going to work as it is claimed to, what other people were saying who have tried it and more.

Tinnitus 911 Review

You are probably suspicious of Tinnitus 911 because it comes off as an overly marketed product, reminding me of Tonaki Tinnitus Protocol (which was a bust). Maybe you saw someone promoting on social media, maybe you got an email about it from someone, or maybe you watched one of those ridiculous video presentations that are out there promoting it.

It it is often provided in a very over-hyped away that just seems too good to be true. I mean can a all natural products like this really miraculously cure your tinnitus?

There are a lot of red flags about this product, most of which I won’t go over. However, if you watch the video presentation then you are probably aware that the person who came up with this miracle product goes by the name of “Charlie Gaines”. However, this guy is likely a completely fabricated character because I found out that the image shown of him in the video presentation is actually taken from a short video clip that can be purchased online by anyone. In other words… The whole “Charlie Gaines” thing is a lie.

But anyways, I’m like going to get much into this. Let’s move on to some of the claims made about this product

Bold Claims Made

Supposedly it can completely abolish your tinnitus and is a verified solution that works in five steps. The five steps that it works and are as follows…

  1. Hearing starts to clear up. Nervous system is being repaired.
  2. Strengthens brain networks and eliminates tinnitus.
  3. Improves memory.
  4. Regenerates brain cells.
  5. Eliminates pain and discomfort.

Okay?… This doesn’t tell you much. Much of what you are told is vague information in there isn’t much convincing evidence supporting it.

Does It Really Work?

In order to determine whether or not this supplement really works, you to take a look at the ingredients inside it. Below is a picture of the ingredient list on the back of a bottle of Tinnitus 911…

tinnitus 911 ingredients

Now if you take your time and read through all of those ingredients you are probably wondering what exactly is going on here. Where is that miracle ingredient that supposedly is going to cure your tinnitus? Most of the ingredients on this list you have probably seen before and many of them you probably consume regularly, maybe without even knowing it.

So can this really care your tinnitus? Well… It depends.

It Depends On Your Situation

It depends on your situation but for the large majority of people out there it probably won’t do anything. If your tinnitus is caused by inflammation then this might work. After all, juniper berry, hibiscus, garlic, and some others are all good anti-inflammatory foods.

That said, the doses here are small and because of this you will likely notice nothing, although you might see some improvements if you have a very mild case of tinnitus.

This Could Even Make Your Tinnitus Worse!

Most if the ingredients you probably recognize, but there are a few that you probably have never heard of before. Uva Ursi is one of these strange ingredients you likely have never heard of. The crazy thing is that while doing some research into uva ursi I found that it can actually cause tinnitus if you take enough, according to Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database. And another source, Ask a Naturapath, states that uva ursi is a food you want to stay away from because it can aggravate tinnitus.

I don’t really know what the people making Tinnitus 911 were thinking when they added this to the list. Out of all the many things you could be eating, this is something you want to avoid if you have tinnitus.

What Other People Are Saying

A product could have all the scientific studies in the world showing that it works in a lab setting, but of course we want to see whether or not it works in real life (not that there is any scientific studies showing that this product works). What or real people who have taken this supplement saying about it? Are they overridden with joy now that their tinnitus is cured? Or are they disappointed that they just got all excited over nothing and wasted bunch of money on something that didn’t work?

Unfortunately it is the latter… It just doesn’t work.

Tinnitus 911 is sold on Amazon so I was able to find a bunch of reviews from people who have tried it. Here is a sample for you…

And there is plenty more where that came from. I am sure this product would have less than a one star rating, but for some reason Amazon doesn’t let people rate products below a one star.

Here are a couple other reviews that you might want to take a look at…

I even found one review from someone saying that their tinnitus got worse after taking Tinnitus 911, and as I have explained with the ingredient uva ursi… There could be some truth to this.

Now I do have to tell you that there are some people saying that this product does work in that it did cure their tinnitus, but I am hesitant to believe that the truthfulness of these reviews. The overwhelming majority of people have left horrible reviews.

Final Thoughts – Avoid

Tinnitus 911 is a good example of an over-hyped product that is marketed in a rather deceptive way and simply does not work as it is claimed to. This is one of those products that people buy and get really excited over by end up in utter disappointment.

While I really hope that anyone, including you, suffering from tinnitus is able to find a cure, this is not going to do it. But don’t give up… Keep looking.

One thing that you have to remember is that there can be multiple different causes of tinnitus, so something that works for one person might not work for another person.

But anyways… I hope you enjoyed my review and found it helpful. Please leave any questions or comments down below and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can 🙂 Also, if you have tried Tinnitus 911 and want to leave your own review down below, I would really appreciate it.

Is Tonaki Tinnitus Protocol a Scam? – Yes It Is In My Opinion

Tonaki Tinnitus Protocol Scam

Tinnitus is a nasty problem that involves nonstop ringing in the ears, making some people’s lives miserable. Luckily…Tonaki Tinnitus Protocol claims to be able to cure this problem once and for all with an all natural solution that can be whipped up from products at your local grocery store. But is this really as good as it sounds? Is it really going to cure your tinnitus or is Tonaki Tinnitus Protocol a scam that is just going to be a waste of your money and time?

According to MayoClinic, tinnitus affects one out of every five people, but of course most people probably don’t have severe cases. It is a very widespread problem that many people just end up living with because they can’t seem to find anything that works.

It would be great and all if Tonaki Tinnitus Protocol would actually cure tinnitus as easily as it is claimed to, but unfortunately I do not see this happening. In this review I’ll be going over what they tell you vs the truth, discussing the “miracle ingredients” that are in this protocol, and telling you what you really need to know… Which of course is not what you are told.


Tonaki Tinnitus Protocol Review

The Story Behind It All

If you go to the official website of Tonaki Tinnitus Protocol you are greeted with a video put on from a guy named Todd Carson. Apparently Todd’s wife “Jo” had a severe case of tinnitus and Todd then went on a mission to find a cure because he could not stand to see her suffer. What a great husband… If this is true that is.

He claims that the real secret has been “hidden from view” because of the corrupt corporate machine that rules over the health industry, who’s mission is to profit from people as much as possible, sucking them dry of every last penny. This is the typical story I usually hear when it comes to health products like this. You are basically told that the health industry is the devil and they don’t care about your health… All they try to do is keep you sick so that you keep paying them. He tells you that the big health companies profit from selling people bogus treatments that they know do not work.

But what he doesn’t tell you, and what I am going to show you, is that he is the one lying here and trying to suck every last penny out of people looking for treatment… people like you.

But anyways… He claims that tinnitus is all about this “special type of nerve fat” and that he found the secret on some remote Japanese island that can cure your tinnitus in a month’s time.

As you are probably well aware, much of this story that he tells you is complete BS. Below I will go over some of the lies that you are told so that you can see for yourself. And I’m assuming that you made it through the entire video presentation, which was over an hour long… Yes it was very exhausting for me to watch.


Why So Many Lies?

Where to start… so many lies.

I’ll start out with the people that Todd claims have been cured from tinnitus after trying out the Tonaki Tinnitus Protocol…

One guy, named Justin Tims, was supposedly a college student that developed tinnitus after a fire alarm went off in his hotel room. After that fateful day he could no longer concentrate and study. He had dreams of becoming a planetary scientist but could not focus enough to make this a reality. Of course he then tried out the protocol and his tinnitus was cured within a month.

HOWEVER… As you can see below the picture for “Justin Tims” is completely fake. It is a stock photo that was purchased online. Anyone can buy these photos and use them as they wish… I performed a reverse Google image search in order to find this out.

Next up was a single mother named Rosario. The picture he showed of her is also a fake. Yet again… Another stock photo that the people behind this video presentation purchased. This woman’s name is not “Rosario” and she did not ever try out Tonaki Tinnitus Protocol and was never cured. It is all a lie…

Is Todd Carson Even Real?

I also want to bring up that this “Todd Carson” guy may very well be a fake also. I did some digging around and couldn’t find any verifiable information on him.

He could possibly be a paid actor and not really who he says he is. I have seen this type of thing many times before so it is nothing out of the ordinary and certainly not a far-fetched idea. Some other scammy products that I’ve reviewed that do this include The Fungus Destroyer and Fungus Key Pro, which are completely unrelated by the way.

If anyone has proof that Todd Carson really does exist I would love to hear it, but as for now I am very skeptical of the truth here.

The Whole Story About Kyoko Is Likely Fake

This entire protocol is supposedly based around three special ingredients that were originally formulated by a woman named Kyoko, who studied Tinnitis back during the battle of Okinawa. Kyoko came up with this formula to help shield her father from tinnitus during the battle, which many other soldiers developed and had problems with.

Why do I think that the whole story is made up and that Kyoko doesn’t exist? Well… Because during the video presentation Kyoko is first referred to as a woman and then later on is referred to as a man. If Todd Carson really had traveled all the way to some remote village off the coast of Japan and met up with Kyoko… He would not forget whether this person is a he or she. This is just another common characteristic of a scam… Getting the story twisted and messed up so that things don’t make sense.


What Exactly Is Tonaki Tinnitus Protocol?

So Tonaki Tinnitus Protocol is just a digital product that basically gives you a protocol of smoothie recipes to follow, all of which contain the “tinnitus silencing ingredients” that were found by Kyoko, who of course probably doesn’t exist.

Because it is a digital product it can be downloaded immediately after purchase.


What Are These Miracle Ingredients?

Kyoko’s secret recipe consisted of a handful of foods, but according to Todd Carson there were three in particular that stood out to him and really have tinnitus treating properties. These three foods include…

  • Imo (purple kind-of sweet potato) – contains quercetin which is a phytonutrient and antioxidant
  • Kumbo (seaweed) – source of Cobalamin, which plays a rule in the production of myelin
  • Natto (consists of furmented soybeans) – contains lecithin which is a component of myelin

You are told that all of these ingredients help improve the myelin sheath, which Todd Carson says is the main culprit of tinnitus. He tells you that this myelin sheath protects the auditory nerve and when this becomes damaged or degenerates, this is when you develop tinnitus.

What Todd Carson has supposedly done is studied these ingredients that were in Kyoko’s recipe and found 12 very important nutrients, which he has since implemented into this Tonaki Tinnitus Protocol.

I did quite a bit of research into this and found that what he is saying here is actually true, surprisingly. What is also true is that the ingredients listed above do actually do what he claims they do.I found that quercetin has been shown to aid in the regeneration of the mylelin sheath according to this study; cobalamin defficiency can lead to neurological disorders, and yes, lecithin is a component of myelin.

So the myelin sheath is very important when it comes to your hearing and if yours is damaged this could be the reason you have tinnitus, AND… The ingredients listed above are able to benefit myelin regeneration. So all sounds well… It sounds like this protocol might actually be worth the price.

But is it really? Well… Here’s what you need to know…


The Truth… What You Need To Know

Ok… So yes, damage to the myelin sheath has been found to cause tinnitus, or at least is strongly suggested to cause tinnitus. There are plenty of studies showing this in there are also studies showing that the ingredients mentioned above can help with myelin sheath regeneration.

One thing that is for sure, is that the medical industry is NOT trying to cover up this information. You can easily do a Google search and find plenty of information on the myelin sheath related to tinnitus. If they are trying to cover it up than they are doing an absolutely horrible job. The claim that the medical industry is trying to hide this so that they can keep sucking the money out of you is just a stupid baseless marketing tactic that has no truth.

But anyways, back to the ingredients in this protocol… They are nothing special and I’ll explain why.

The Ingredients Are NOTHING SPECIAL

He talks about how Quercetin (found in “imo”), Cobalamin (found in “kumbo”) and Lecithin (found in “natto”), or the three main ingredients that are going to help your body repair your myelin sheath and eliminate tinnitus. But what he doesn’t tell you is that all three of these ingredients are nothing special by any means and are found in many other foods, which you are probably already eating.

Quercetin is found in green leafy vegetables, broccoli, red onions, apples, grapes, and a variety of other foods. Cobalamin is found in meat, fish, eggs, milk and a few others. And lecithin is found in eggs, seafood, red meat, legumes and more.

Are you eating any of these foods mentioned? I bet you already are and guess what… You still have tinnitus unfortunately.

It is unfortunate, but for most people out there this protocol of smoothies that contain these special ingredients really aren’t going to do anything for them when it comes to their tinnitus.


Final Thoughts – Is It Worth The Cost?

Tonaki Tinnitus Protocol is a great example of another very over-hyped product that plays on people’s emotions. “Todd Carson” makes you think that the entire health industry is the bad guy and that of course his Tonaki Tinnitus Protocol is the only solution to your tinnitus.

The marketing tactics used to promote this product disgust me. The video presentation is full of lies and deception.

Now ultimately it is your decision on whether or not to purchase this protocol, but I sure don’t recommend it. It does have health benefits and you might see some improvement. If you wish to purchase it you can click here to do so.
