I am the original inventor of the solution behind Advance Ear™. I am also one of the millions of Americans who suffer from tinnitus. Since developing the solution a few years ago, I have used it to treat my ringing on a regular basis. I am pleased to share with you that, over time, those debilitating bouts of endless ear noise and discomfort that I thought would never go away have been reduced to very infrequent flare-ups. When my tinnitus flares up, I administer my solution, wait for it to start working, and then fall asleep without difficulty. After years of using this product on myself and a few family members and friends, I have decided that it's time to share it with the ever-rising number of Americans who suffer from both persistent and intermittent ringing in their ears. If you suffer like I used to, I hope it helps you.
Everybody's tinnitus story is different, and I can trace the beginning of mine to my three and a half decades in the remodeling industry. It is an industry I have had a passion for since I was nine years old. I am a fourth-generation builder and interior remodeler. I joined my father's remodeling business in 1979 after finishing school. Seven years later, my wife at the time and I started our own company. She was very talented in drawing and design, and I brought my technical skills to the partnership. We had a great time working together.
By the mid-nineties, we were designing, building, and remodeling some of the finest work in Minnesota. Our work was featured in Better Homes and Gardens magazine and three times in Minneapolis-St Paul magazine.
A decade into our adventure, we were growing at 30 percent a year and, in 2003, won the prestigious Contractor of the Year award from the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (N.A.R.I.). We were happy, healthy, and blessed with two terrific sons and a fulfilling career.
All those decades of hammering, sawing, and supervising on-site did take its toll. In 2002, I woke up one morning with a loud ringing in my left ear. As the ringing persisted, I followed my wife's advice and sought medical help.
The first doctor I saw put tubes in my ear, which made the ringing worse. Then, a second specialist put me on steroids and Cipro, a heavy-duty antibiotic. Neither of those did anything. After a while, a hearing test showed that I had lost the ability to hear my high-range pitches.
I saw expert after expert, and I was told that there was no cure available. I was told I would have to live with permanent ringing in my ears, just like millions of other people do. I could not accept that. But what could I do?
The genesis of Advance Ear™ stems from my nearly two decades of interest in herbology and natural healing. Let me tell you how it all came about:
In 1996, I developed a bad case of stomach acid. A close friend of mine suggested nutmeg. I was skeptical, so I asked him how he knew that nutmeg would help. He replied that he got the suggestion from a book he had found at the Wedge Co-op called, "Left for Dead". It was written by a Minnesota man, Dick Quinn, who had suffered a heart attack in 1978 at the age of 42. After a double-bypass surgery failed to adequately support blood circulation to his heart, he was expected to die.
After a neighbor suggested that he use cayenne pepper to reinvigorate his heart, Quinn started to make his own cayenne capsules. By this time, his surgeons had told him there was nothing else they could do for him, so he figured he had nothing to lose. As it turned out, the capsules made him feel better to the point of him being able to return to work.
Quinn began to research herbs and natural healing with gusto. He read everything he could get his hands on. Some years later, excited about his progress with cayenne, he founded the Heart Foods Company and published his story of recovery, "Left for Dead".
I read the book cover to cover and became fascinated with Quinn's story and the possibilities of healing the body with herbs and other natural compounds. I began to intensely study herbs, spices, and its use in history. Excited, I went to the Wedge Co-Op and bought a capsule machine and 500 empty capsules. I bought cayenne pepper and nutmeg in bulk and began making capsules.
For about two years, I made capsules for friends: white willow bark for pain and headaches; valerian root for insomnia; goldenseal for mood enhancement; soy lecithin for a cardiovascular cleanse; echinacea root to tamper inflammation and improve immunity. I became the go-to guy for remedies in my circle of friends and even in my neighborhood. Whenever someone would complain about a pain of some sort, I usually had an answer for them.
My frustration with my doctors not being able to alleviate my tinnitus started to negatively affect my work and even my marriage. I was exhausted from not being able to sleep. I was at my wits' end.
As my remodeling business expanded, I had gradually stopped making capsules for friends and family; I had no time. But the knowledge I had accumulated over more than a decade did not go away. One day, out of sheer frustration with my constant ringing, I decided to start experimenting again. I figured It could not hurt, and it was probably my last option.
I knew that a liquid-tincture delivery system would work best if this was going to work at all. So, I made my first formula, filled my ear with it, and I lay down. After about 30 seconds, it began to burn so badly that I had to drain it out and immediately irrigate my ear canal. I then diluted the formula substantially, but that also did not work.
Undeterred, I continued to adjust, experiment, and document everything I did and the results at every stage. After several adjustments, I finally developed and filled my ear with, what is now, the current patented formula. The solution felt warm, comforting, and soothing. It numbed my ear but only temporarily. I applied it before going to bed and found that it helped me sleep. Nothing had helped me to sleep in years. It was a revelation.
It took about a dozen self-administered treatments for me to notice a significant reduction in my ringing. After about 20 treatments, my tinnitus was about half as bad as it was before treatment. I stuck with it and eventually had my tinnitus down to a level where I could function quite well and did not have the constant ringing.
There is, of-course, no cure for tinnitus. I still get occasional flare-ups. The flare-ups can take a few months to recur or as long as eighteen months after treatment. When it happens, I treat the affected ear with Advance Ear™. Typically, after a couple of nightly applications, the ringing goes away.
For me, Advance Ear™ has proven to be an effective method to control and manage my tinnitus without taking useless drugs. The relief Advance Ear™ has given me is tremendously unburdening. I hope it helps you too.
I am excited to share Advance Ear™ with all those who suffer from the annoyance and pain of ringing. I look forward to hearing your stories.
All the best,
