Inflammation, Tinnitus, and the IL4R Gene

Written by Joe Cohen, BS | Last updated:

Tinnitus (ringing in your ears) can develop for no reason at all. A common myth that goes around is that tinnitus only occurs when you’re frequently around loud noises. But, that’s not always the case.

Tinnitus isn’t a disease on its own, it’s actually a symptom of an underlying health problem.

So even if you take precautionary measures to protect your ears, there’s still a potential risk of developing it.

But here’s another myth for you that is in fact just a myth: there’s nothing you can do with tinnitus, you just have to live with it.

The truth is, you can make changes that will help you decrease or diminish your tinnitus, and the answer lies within your DNA.

And even if you don’t have tinnitus right now, you can still use the revolutionary technology of a genetics based tool like SelfDecode to take preventative measures!

Tinnitus, Inflammation, and the IL4R Gene

The IL4R gene really highlights how you can be susceptible to tinnitus even with the avoidance of loud noises.

This gene codes for a receptor that’s responsible for inflammation, and has been linked to both sudden deafness and tinnitus. Stress plays a big role in your IL-4 levels.

High stress = high IL-4 levels.

So, if you’ve been under a high amount of stress and haven’t been implementing any stress-reducing activities, you’re actually putting yourself at a higher risk of developing a form of tinnitus.

On top of that, there’s a negative variant of the IL4R gene that drastically increases your IL-4 levels as well.

So if you carry the negative gene variant and you’re dealing with stress, you’re even more vulnerable to tinnitus and for the ringing to be more severe. And this is all without considering your environment, like how often you listen to loud music.

Luckily, the Tinnitus DNA Report analyzes over 19 genes related to tinnitus, and provides you with personalized diet, lifestyle, and supplement recommendations that can help decrease the severity of your tinnitus and your susceptibility to developing it.

You can finally get your personalized solution to your ringing issue in a matter of minutes.

Once you’ve had your genes tested with our DNA kit (or upload a DNA file you already have), you’ll instantly be able to check out your own report to see which genes are a problem for you.

Start the new year on the right foot.
