One in ten Americans suffer from some form of hearing loss. Hearing loss is the third most common problem for people over the age of sixty-five.About 85 percent of hearing loss is related to ringing in the ears or tinnitus.

Other causes of hearing loss include allergies, sinus inflammation, chronic bronchial mastoid inflammation, arteriosclerosis, excess ear wax, poor circulation, high blood pressure, metabolic imbalance, low immunity,autoimmune disease, hypoglycemia, and a diet that consists of too many mucus-forming foods.

Hearing loss is defined as the loss of ability to perceive sounds as compared with what would be considered normal, due to tinnitus, ear malfunction, and excess wax.

Symptoms include ringing in the ears and diminished ability to hear.
