Hi sunfun, so sorry you are suffering. WalkingbyFaith gave you good information as far as which Neuro-Antitox Formula to order (I agree based on your symptoms) which is the Neuro-Antitox CNS/PNS Formula.
For those who don't know about
Hyperacusis: Do you have difficulty tolerating everyday sounds? Hyperacusis is characterized by decreased sound tolerance – an increased sensitivity to normal environmental sounds. This can have a significant impact on many aspects of a person’s life. It can disrupt a person’s career, dismantle their social life, and perhaps even rattle their peace of mind. Very normal activities like talking to a friend, watching TV, driving a car, or vacuuming your home may feel difficult, uncomfortable, or perhaps even impossible. Some people even find the sound of their own voice or their spouse’s voice intolerably loud.
How severe is your hyperacusis?
If you live with hyperacusis, you may feel like the whole world’s volume is unbearably and painfully high. High-pitched noises like alarms, babies crying, and glass breaking can cause pain and anxiety. You may experience physical pain in your ear or a feeling of fullness (pressure) that is especially irritating. In addition, many people find that tinnitus (ringing in the ears) accompanies their sensitivity to sound, and some also lose their dynamic range of hearing (the ability to deal with sudden changes in volume).
Types of Hyperacusis:
There are two types of hyperacusis: cochlear and vestibular. Cochlear, the most common form, causes pain in the ear, frustration, and a general feeling of intolerance to everyday sounds. Vestibular hyperacusis, on the other hand, causes feelings of nausea, dizziness, and imbalance when particular sounds are present. Both types of hyperacusis can cause anxiety, stress, depression, social isolation, and phonophobia (fear of normal sounds).
Lyme is one of the causes of hyperacusis according to this article:https://www.soundrelief.com/hyperacusis/
Inflammation can also be caused by ammonia as well as diet (read below):http://davidjernigan.blogspot.com/2010/12/alkaline-brain-dietary-concerns-in-lyme.html
While there are many people who have been helped by these alkaline diets and alkalinized water, it is likely that they did not have a significant accumulation of ammonia and therefore did not experience a worsening of their symptoms.
It appears that alkaline diets can aggravate the already over-alkaline, ammonia regions of their body: the brain, jaws, heart, and liver. The ammonia conditions must be cleared before addressing the more acidic regions of the body.
High protein foods such as grains and meat contain an amino-acid (the breakdown unit of protein) called L-arginine. L-arginine in foods and as a nutritional supplement should not be taken in cases of hyperammonemia. Research reveals that ammonia (NH3) + arginine + manganese = increased nitric oxide (NO) up to 53% in astrocytes (brain cells), leading to increased brain swelling. “Manganese in excess is neurotoxic and causes a CNS disorder that resembles Parkinson's disease (manganism). Manganese accumulates excessively in astrocytes, which renders these cells more vulnerable to its toxicity.”
Sunfun, if you are interested in reading Dr. Jernigan's free chapter here it is below in which he also writes about
The Neuro-Antitox CNS/PNS formula can be ordered below (I suggest the version based in alcohol unless you have a severe adversion to alcohol then order the ACV base):https://www.jnutra.com/collections/herbal-remedies/products/neuro-antitox-ii-cns-pns
Disclaimer: I have no financial interest in any supplement I have mentioned. I write about
supplements due to the fact that I have taken them which in turn healed me from chronic lyme.
I hope this helps,
