Medical Medium protocol for hearing loss – 1 year update
I’ve now been following the ‘Medical Medium’ protocol for about a year (previous posts here and here) so here’s a little update on how it is going.
I must admit I’ve been getting a little lazy these last few months. I’ve been indulging more often in meals out, more meat, less raw food and not doing my celery juice and lemon every morning. I’ve fallen in love with the warming feel of gluten free oats, raw honey and hemp milk in the morning so my raw till 4 policy lost steam. It’s not like I’ve gone completely off the rails and am gorging on pepperoni pizza and gin and tonics but I know I’m not doing the very best for myself to encourage my healing.
But things have turned around. My second appointment with one of Anthony William’s recommended practitioners (Muneeza) last week inspired me to get right on track again. She thinks that my viral load is down by about 60% since we last spoke in May 2016, but she urged me to keep going and reinstated that it will take time to get to the point where I can really let my guard down about what I eat and the supplement routine.
Muneeza is a medical intuitive and I know there is no chart or science I can see to demonstrate an improvement, but I believe her because my hearing has remained stable for the last 6 months. And whilst my tinnitus is always in my brain like a factory or electrical waterfall soundtrack, it hasn’t elevated itself to levels I can’t cope with like it has in the past.
I’m studying to be a Systematic Kinesiologist!
The other thing that may have been helping is that since summer I’ve been using Systematic Kinesiology to help me identify exactly what supplements I need to be taking and the right quantities. Systematic Kinesiology (called Touch for Health, or Applied Kinesiology), is a way of obtaining biofeedback from the body in order to identify imbalances and what corrections are needed. Corrections can involve supplements, diet, chiropractic adjustments, acupressure or emotional work.
I found it such a great tool that I decided to study it myself. I think it will be immensely powerful combined with the Medical Medium information and I hope to be able to guide people with chronic illnesses through the protocol in future. I’m still surprised to meet so many people who haven’t heard of the book or the link between Epstein Barr Virus and thyroid problems and chronic and/or mysterious health conditions such as hearing loss. It’s the missing piece of the jigsaw that so many of us have been searching for.
I found that I was able to reduce my supplementation because not all of the supplements in the protocol were required all of the time. Kinesiology showed me that the body needs different things sometimes on a weekly basis. I’ve also added in a few other supplements here and there when they are indicated.
The core supplements that I’m taking every day are:
- L-Lysene (1,000 mg)
- Vitamin C – as Ester C (3,000 mg) and Liposomal C (2tbs)
- Licorice Root Extract (2 droppers)
- Ashwaganda Extract (2 droppers)
- Cats Claw Extract (4 droppers)
- Hawaiin Spirulina (x 6)
- B12 (adeno/methyl) (4 droppers)
- Nascent Iodine (3-4 drops)
- ALA – (600 mg)
- Coenzyme Q10 – (200mg)
- Flax Oil – (3 caps)
- Wild Blueberry Powder – (1 tsp)
- Barley Grass Juice Powder – (1 tsp)
- Atlantic Dulse – (6 capsules)
I’ve made a separate page for all the supplements I’ve found to be best value and quality in the UK which adhere to Anthony’s ingredient specification, here.
Diet and weight
I’m sticking to the diet the majority of the time:
- No gluten, dairy, egg, chicken, pork, corn/maize, farmed fish, soya, MSG, citric acid
- Low fat, meat, refined sugar
- High quantities of fruit and veg, preferably raw, particularly of the foods linked to healing EBV and thyroid
And very annoyingly, whilst I’m following what most people would call a super strict diet, I’ve actually put weight ON with this protocol. Muneeza says its one of the most common complaints from women doing the plan. Some women lose lots and others gain. She assures me that as I get closer to healing the virus, the weight will fall off again. All weight gain is to do with the liver as it gets stagnant and lazy having to clear up all the toxins the detox is lifting up.
If you find you are putting on weight with the protocol make sure you support your liver….drink lemon water every morning, incorporate more kale, dandelion greens, asparagus (every day), red apples, burdock root, nettle and rasberry leaf tea. Cut down on fat and obviously, alcohol.
Given that my whole vision shakes when I move, exercise has lost its appeal. There’s no doubt that my my more sedentary lifestyle is also contributing to my more voluptuous profile.
My thyroid nodules still haven’t shrunk and still show as a big lump on my neck, but I’ve seen a few reports now on Facebook from people who’s modules have completely disappeared so I am holding some hope that one day that will be me too. One lady said her doctor confirmed that her 1/3 remaining thyroid tissue has grown in size!
I’ve upped my intake of nascent iodine to 3-4 drops per day and Muneesa recommended I drink red clover tea every day for my thyroid.
So that’s it for now folks. How are you getting on with the protocol?

🙁 Whole year and you still have to battle with it. I’m trying to follow his advice aswell..finding it difficult..and now dismayed as i feel there’s no hope me if you been following it so strictly yet still have far to go after 1yr 🙁

Hi Annie, Please don’t think of it that way. For all we know I could have lost all my hearing by now. I’m delighted and I see it as amazing progress that I haven’t had any further hearing reductions for the last 6 months. My viral load is down loads (as Muneeza told me) which means it isn’t causing damage in my body. I’m going to keep on this journey until the fat lady (me now as I’ve put on weight) has sung! I knew from the start that the program can take 2+ years and eventually really it just becomes a lifestyle rather than a strict effort. I’m not 100%…I had chips 2 nights this week but I still feel like my efforts are being repaid in better health. What other options are there? Dont give up. This is no quick fix but look how quickly time flies, 2 years is nothing in the grand scheme of the rest of your life xxx

That’s a great way of looking at it!
January 18, 2017 @ 5:48 pm
Definitely no quick fix. Glad to hear you looking at the positives.

This is so helpful! As I’m dealing with late stage EBV, I find the tinnitus to be the worst part. Glad you’ve come this far!

The same here! Hole the best for you!!

Hello how did you get tested fir EBV, how do you know you have that virus and what are your symptoms. I will ask I thought. Thanks

Hi Letty, blood tests are not very accurate. They just show that you’ve had it in the past as the medical field doesn’t know or sticks around. The best way to check if It is playing a role in your problem is to look at the signs and symptoms. If you want confirmation find a kinesiologist who knows about EBV and Medical Medium. This is what I do (candiceluper.com) but there are others out there to. My symptoms that all add up to EBV are mainly the thyroid nodules, hearing loss, tinnitus, balance issues… and some symptoms are indirectly related and combined with toxic overload… hair loss as a child, mood swings, fatigue, irritability, overheating, bloating, some depression, brain fog, memory loss…as I say it’s not just EBV but the byproducts combined with toxins in the evolvement which burden the system and create these symptoms. Feel free to pm me

Against tinnitus, please try the following:
-1 ml essential oil of Helichrysum italicum, 1ml of EO of Artemisia dracunculus, 1ml of EO of Lavandula angustifolia, 1 ml of EO of Citrus aurantium in 25ml of almond oil (Sorry for the latin names, I just don’t know the english equivalents but all these are common essential oils). Massage the whole ear, and around it, but no drop inside. Three times a day.
You might experience a slight and short spike (<15mn) after application, but no big deal.
+ Oral route:
-1000 mg of Ginkgo biloba in 3 takes daily for at least 100 days (you may “fade in” to 1000mg since Ginkgo is a vasodilator)
-500mg of Ballota nigra in 3 takes daily
-500mg of Melissa officinalis in 3 takes daily
If any success, please report.

Thankyou for this suggestion though I don’t really wasnt to encourage people to take essential oils internally except a few such as oregano oil). I will try the topical treatment though.

Perfectly agree. This treatment is topical. I am currently having some more results with the following for my tinnitus:
-1200 mg Ginkgo biloba daily for the past 60 days (Ginkgo has been more than once signaled as possibly taking effect between month 2 and 3). In my case, after seeing no tangible effect for 50 days, things are now changing. But as you see, my dosage is way more than the usual 240mg…
-22mg Zn piccolinate daily (for the past week)
(-NAC 600mg last three days
-Vit B12 2x 1000 mcg since yesterday)
Between these 4 things, one of the first two is making a real difference, either Zinc, “instantly”, or Ginkgo just as instantly… after 50 days.
Aside: I have a sense of improved hearing as well.

i dont hear anything on my left ear. I had many hearing loss on both ears several times a day for months.
I am doing Medical Medium, but it still gets worse.
I cant drink the Metal Smoothie because of my chronic constipation.
I am doining the Mono cleanse.
Please help me.
what should I do now?

So sorry to hear.
I can’t give personalised advice without knowing more about you and kinesiology testing what you need, but I recommend you go 100% into the MM protocols. Take out ALL of the no foods, Celery Juice, low fat through the morning and afternoon at least, cut out animal products, and get on the right supplements. I’d love to help you if you could book a session with me I will help identify what is needed (see http://www.candiceluper.com). I remember that happened at the beginning of my MM journey a lot and it can feel like 1 step forward, 2 steps back, you may need to do more than you are currently doing, or your protocol may need adjusting..Do you have digestive issues as well? That’s what the mono cleanse is best for. Please feel free to message me. Candice
