“ I developed severe Tinnitus 2ys ago which affected my lifestyle and gave me a wake-up call. Tinnitus is a continuous ringing in one or both ears but has no medical solution. The problem that I find is that I have no control over the noise, and this lack of control is very demoralising.
I realised that for me to deal with my discomfort I needed to do everything in my power to improve my general health and wellbeing so as to increase my resilience. I approached Graham who said he was happy to help. He put me on a low carbohydrates diet after we monitored my response to sugars, as it soon became evident that I had very sharp glucose spikes to bread, rice, porridge, potatoes, sweet potato, and pasta, but thankfully not to dark chocolate!. Together we devised a diet plan that kept my blood sugar tightly controlled with no spikes. The reasoning is that perhaps it is the relationship between glucose and insulin spikes that causes the fluctuations in the tinnitus.
I found that there is a definite dampening down of the noise and that overall there are fewer fluctuations allowing me to feel I do have some control. In addition, I lost weight, I feel more confident in what to eat and I do not miss carbohydrates in the slightest and enjoy my food immensely. I not only engaged in his dietary advice but also listend to him in relation to sleep and exercise. I feel more confident once again, able to enjoy life better and am more optimistic.
I am grateful for Graham’s advice which he gives with such professionalism, kindness, and generosity.”
