Is Tonaki Tinnitus Protocol a Scam? – Yes It Is In My Opinion

August 8, 2018

Tonaki Tinnitus Protocol Scam

Tinnitus is a nasty problem that involves nonstop ringing in the ears, making some people’s lives miserable. Luckily…Tonaki Tinnitus Protocol claims to be able to cure this problem once and for all with an all natural solution that can be whipped up from products at your local grocery store. But is this really as good as it sounds? Is it really going to cure your tinnitus or is Tonaki Tinnitus Protocol a scam that is just going to be a waste of your money and time?

According to MayoClinic, tinnitus affects one out of every five people, but of course most people probably don’t have severe cases. It is a very widespread problem that many people just end up living with because they can’t seem to find anything that works.

It would be great and all if Tonaki Tinnitus Protocol would actually cure tinnitus as easily as it is claimed to, but unfortunately I do not see this happening. In this review I’ll be going over what they tell you vs the truth, discussing the “miracle ingredients” that are in this protocol, and telling you what you really need to know… Which of course is not what you are told.

Tonaki Tinnitus Protocol Review

The Story Behind It All

If you go to the official website of Tonaki Tinnitus Protocol you are greeted with a video put on from a guy named Todd Carson. Apparently Todd’s wife “Jo” had a severe case of tinnitus and Todd then went on a mission to find a cure because he could not stand to see her suffer. What a great husband… If this is true that is.

He claims that the real secret has been “hidden from view” because of the corrupt corporate machine that rules over the health industry, who’s mission is to profit from people as much as possible, sucking them dry of every last penny. This is the typical story I usually hear when it comes to health products like this. You are basically told that the health industry is the devil and they don’t care about your health… All they try to do is keep you sick so that you keep paying them. He tells you that the big health companies profit from selling people bogus treatments that they know do not work.

But what he doesn’t tell you, and what I am going to show you, is that he is the one lying here and trying to suck every last penny out of people looking for treatment… people like you.

But anyways… He claims that tinnitus is all about this “special type of nerve fat” and that he found the secret on some remote Japanese island that can cure your tinnitus in a month’s time.

As you are probably well aware, much of this story that he tells you is complete BS. Below I will go over some of the lies that you are told so that you can see for yourself. And I’m assuming that you made it through the entire video presentation, which was over an hour long… Yes it was very exhausting for me to watch.

Why So Many Lies?

Where to start… so many lies.

I’ll start out with the people that Todd claims have been cured from tinnitus after trying out the Tonaki Tinnitus Protocol…

One guy, named Justin Tims, was supposedly a college student that developed tinnitus after a fire alarm went off in his hotel room. After that fateful day he could no longer concentrate and study. He had dreams of becoming a planetary scientist but could not focus enough to make this a reality. Of course he then tried out the protocol and his tinnitus was cured within a month.

HOWEVER… As you can see below the picture for “Justin Tims” is completely fake. It is a stock photo that was purchased online. Anyone can buy these photos and use them as they wish… I performed a reverse Google image search in order to find this out.

Next up was a single mother named Rosario. The picture he showed of her is also a fake. Yet again… Another stock photo that the people behind this video presentation purchased. This woman’s name is not “Rosario” and she did not ever try out Tonaki Tinnitus Protocol and was never cured. It is all a lie…

Is Todd Carson Even Real?

I also want to bring up that this “Todd Carson” guy may very well be a fake also. I did some digging around and couldn’t find any verifiable information on him.

He could possibly be a paid actor and not really who he says he is. I have seen this type of thing many times before so it is nothing out of the ordinary and certainly not a far-fetched idea. Some other scammy products that I’ve reviewed that do this include The Fungus Destroyer and Fungus Key Pro, which are completely unrelated by the way.

If anyone has proof that Todd Carson really does exist I would love to hear it, but as for now I am very skeptical of the truth here.

The Whole Story About Kyoko Is Likely Fake

This entire protocol is supposedly based around three special ingredients that were originally formulated by a woman named Kyoko, who studied Tinnitis back during the battle of Okinawa. Kyoko came up with this formula to help shield her father from tinnitus during the battle, which many other soldiers developed and had problems with.

Why do I think that the whole story is made up and that Kyoko doesn’t exist? Well… Because during the video presentation Kyoko is first referred to as a woman and then later on is referred to as a man. If Todd Carson really had traveled all the way to some remote village off the coast of Japan and met up with Kyoko… He would not forget whether this person is a he or she. This is just another common characteristic of a scam… Getting the story twisted and messed up so that things don’t make sense.

What Exactly Is Tonaki Tinnitus Protocol?

So Tonaki Tinnitus Protocol is just a digital product that basically gives you a protocol of smoothie recipes to follow, all of which contain the “tinnitus silencing ingredients” that were found by Kyoko, who of course probably doesn’t exist.

Because it is a digital product it can be downloaded immediately after purchase.

What Are These Miracle Ingredients?

Kyoko’s secret recipe consisted of a handful of foods, but according to Todd Carson there were three in particular that stood out to him and really have tinnitus treating properties. These three foods include…

  • Imo (purple kind-of sweet potato) – contains quercetin which is a phytonutrient and antioxidant
  • Kumbo (seaweed) – source of Cobalamin, which plays a rule in the production of myelin
  • Natto (consists of furmented soybeans) – contains lecithin which is a component of myelin

You are told that all of these ingredients help improve the myelin sheath, which Todd Carson says is the main culprit of tinnitus. He tells you that this myelin sheath protects the auditory nerve and when this becomes damaged or degenerates, this is when you develop tinnitus.

What Todd Carson has supposedly done is studied these ingredients that were in Kyoko’s recipe and found 12 very important nutrients, which he has since implemented into this Tonaki Tinnitus Protocol.

I did quite a bit of research into this and found that what he is saying here is actually true, surprisingly. What is also true is that the ingredients listed above do actually do what he claims they do.I found that quercetin has been shown to aid in the regeneration of the mylelin sheath according to this study; cobalamin defficiency can lead to neurological disorders, and yes, lecithin is a component of myelin.

So the myelin sheath is very important when it comes to your hearing and if yours is damaged this could be the reason you have tinnitus, AND… The ingredients listed above are able to benefit myelin regeneration. So all sounds well… It sounds like this protocol might actually be worth the price.

But is it really? Well… Here’s what you need to know…

The Truth… What You Need To Know

Ok… So yes, damage to the myelin sheath has been found to cause tinnitus, or at least is strongly suggested to cause tinnitus. There are plenty of studies showing this in there are also studies showing that the ingredients mentioned above can help with myelin sheath regeneration.

One thing that is for sure, is that the medical industry is NOT trying to cover up this information. You can easily do a Google search and find plenty of information on the myelin sheath related to tinnitus. If they are trying to cover it up than they are doing an absolutely horrible job. The claim that the medical industry is trying to hide this so that they can keep sucking the money out of you is just a stupid baseless marketing tactic that has no truth.

But anyways, back to the ingredients in this protocol… They are nothing special and I’ll explain why.

The Ingredients Are NOTHING SPECIAL

He talks about how Quercetin (found in “imo”), Cobalamin (found in “kumbo”) and Lecithin (found in “natto”), or the three main ingredients that are going to help your body repair your myelin sheath and eliminate tinnitus. But what he doesn’t tell you is that all three of these ingredients are nothing special by any means and are found in many other foods, which you are probably already eating.

Quercetin is found in green leafy vegetables, broccoli, red onions, apples, grapes, and a variety of other foods. Cobalamin is found in meat, fish, eggs, milk and a few others. And lecithin is found in eggs, seafood, red meat, legumes and more.

Are you eating any of these foods mentioned? I bet you already are and guess what… You still have tinnitus unfortunately.

It is unfortunate, but for most people out there this protocol of smoothies that contain these special ingredients really aren’t going to do anything for them when it comes to their tinnitus.

Final Thoughts – Is It Worth The Cost?

Tonaki Tinnitus Protocol is a great example of another very over-hyped product that plays on people’s emotions. “Todd Carson” makes you think that the entire health industry is the bad guy and that of course his Tonaki Tinnitus Protocol is the only solution to your tinnitus.

The marketing tactics used to promote this product disgust me. The video presentation is full of lies and deception.

Now ultimately it is your decision on whether or not to purchase this protocol, but I sure don’t recommend it. It does have health benefits and you might see some improvement. If you wish to purchase it you can click here to do so.

Anyways… I hope you enjoyed my review and found it helpful. If you did, please share it to spread the truth. Also, leave any comments or questions below and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can 🙂

  1. This has been extremely helpful to me. This morning I was perusing the News app on my smartphone when somehow I was directed to this ear ringing information. Since I suffer without ringing buzzing sound, I was completely interested and watched the entire video. I had my debit card out ready, and then I realized that there was no product. It was simply an online download. I started thinking about some of the things said, and I realized at that moment that it might be a scam. It seems so real and believable, and gave me hope. Thank you so much for your wonderful review. This is really answered my questions.

  2. This news is sad as as well as good.. Sad because I was hoping it was real to help my 10 year tinnitus suffering and good that I did not waste MORE money on BS tinnitus cures.. Thxz 8=(

  3. I was casually looking, I have mild Tinnitus, but the Myelan Sheath is also what is involved in MS, which my son has, which is why I put up with the whole presentation.
    Glad to see someone point out the phony “big pharma is greedy” crap. I might pass along the vitamins to my son.

  4. One of my family suffers from Tinnitus, so I clicked and skimmed the ad (it gave me everything in text after I refreshed the page).
    And I realized that it is almost exactly the same as another ad I saw a few weeks ago, claiming that there is a way to cure nearsightedness, but that ‘the eye doctors don’t want you to know because they want you to keep buying glasses, so the industry is trying to cover it up/keep it quiet’. It also talked about finding certain special vitamins/ingredients, had the exact same overall style of presentation, and was also selling smoothies.

    I think both are scams and made by the same people.

    Both have the strategy of targeting a condition which troubles people enough in daily life that they are willing to take the risk on a sketchy product, and give false hope of a cure or improvement.

    I have pretty bad nearsightedness, it has been slowly getting worse since I was a child, and if it continues at this rate, I’ll count as legally blind in just a few years. So having the hope of good vision dangled in front of me as a scam tactic makes me pretty upset. Same with the hope of relieving the tinnitus of my family member.

    If you have not already, please review the related eyesight scam, and warn people not to fall victim to these people trying to prey on people using false hope.

  5. Great points and very true, there is not real secret that a natural high quality lifestyle as God intended helps us all and in the best way possible. We have to remember that our body, mind and soul are connected and it all matters.

  6. I thought it was too good to be true.
    If its such a wonder cure why would the health authorities go against it.
    Thank you for your frank options on this

  7. Thank you. I knew this was a scam, but all the “reviews” I could find were really just veiled advertising. Yours was the only actual legitimate article. Good job. Thank you for looking out!

  8. Saw the comment from Jenny and you asked for the name. I was going to ask you if you saw Outback Vision Protocol before I saw Jenny’s comment. The two stories are so much alike. Appreciate your checking it out and post it to my email. Much thanks.

  9. Thanks Kyle for your review. I have tinnitus so I was interested when I came across this youtube video. When ever I see some presentation like this that goes on and fucking on, I see it is a scam.

  10. Wanted to post to say well done to Kyle for uncovering this and other scams, its sad people take advantage, but people like you help equalize the bad, thanks.

    Its 100% fake and the same people have carried out other similar scams before. There’s a thread on tinnitus talk forum discussing this and others.


    For anyone suffering from T, mine has definately improved after habituation, possibly through eating cleaner and avoiding emf frequencies, though i cant say for sure. Lots of research is going into Tinnitus, a cure/effective treatment will make someone rich someday, stay strong!

    Thanks again Kyle.

  11. If something sounds to good to be true it usually is exactly that. Miracle cures working within a month for a lifetime problem sounds to good to be true. A bit Google search and I saved my money. They should be fined for scamming people.
    Thank you ?

  12. I would like to add that this program for curing tendinitis in 21 days is working for me so I believe it is not a scam. I appreciate Todd Carsons research and work
    thank you

    1. The secret is that it is darn hard to get that 60 day refund. The place that you are purchasing this through, I believe, is an Indian company. I’ve heard of some people getting their money back but others have had difficulty and couldn’t.

  13. Hi Kyle .. Greetings from Singapore.

    Thank you. I didn’t know this was a scam. the video presentation was really very convincing. Thank God I stumbled upon your posts when I started checking out on Google. Good job. Thank you for looking out and warning people like us looking out for “cure” in desperate moments..

    Best regards
    Edwin W.

  14. hi….yes I read this twice over, as have suffered with this with no help from GP as yet, saw this and thought I might buy this product, but then thought it was a bit OTT esp as there was no reviews, and the whole thing depressed me to be honest and made me feel worse and that got me thinking that is how they want you to feel ,,,desperate……so I have decided not to buy this product and will pursue more positive avenues to get my awful tinnitus sorted, its the bane of my life, but even worse to buy something believing it will cure it….

  15. Thanks Kyle, I was getting my hopes up but after finding your article i was glad i did my research and read your article.. Thanks for saving my money..

  16. Hey Kyle, thanks a lot for your honest review. I was also sceptical when I saw the holograms and sci fy shit he used in the video and was thinking on googling the pictures of the people myself. Im very glad you already did with all the additional research too. Its really sharp. As i listened I was constantly reminded of the ridiculous amount of manipulation techniques he used, its crazy. Its kinda the same thing matthew hussey uses into buying his dating coach shit, i wonder where they learn these techniques, at the army or something? Anyway thanks!

    1. Hi Ines. Ya… a lot of online marketers use scammy marketing techniques like this these days, unfortunately. I’m glad you enjoyed the review though.

      Be sure to share this post to help spread the truth if you can.

  17. Thanks for the truth! Was so excited at first thinking maybe it would help my brother. I really appreciate your advice in helping me not to waste my precious little money I get from social security!

  18. Kyle: Do you know of any recent medications or foodstuffs that can mask or eliminate my hissing sound Tinnitus, which I have experienced in both of my ears the past 35 years. I notice that when I stop having a glass of wine at dinner, it subsides just a little bit. I also take a daily Lexapro [Seratonin Uptake Inhibitor] for the past 35 years which may contribute to my problem. I will be seeking a Doctor to treat me again soon.

  19. Thanks, Kyle, All the way it had scam screaming out to me, though if he had been selling the actual drink I more than likely would have given it a go. As Judge Judy says dumb is forever. 🙂 For what it is worth I have been using the Signia Silk Nx ( expensive) it’s given me some tinnitus free times. For me it was worth it

  20. My son is 50, and has Meniere’s disease. I was seriously looking for help for him, and for myself – I have military related tinnitus. My family is Korean, so we are familiar with all the ingredients, and already consume many of them, but I will start consuming more of the key ingredients. Thank you for your review.

  21. Dear Kyle, I am suffering from Tonaki Tinnitus. After watching his video, I was really hopefule that the Protocol will help me get rid of these nonstop buzzings. Last night I was looking for reviews of those who had gotten along with the protocole smoothies, I read your review.
    You know I am from a developing country where even 37 dollars is so expensive to pay. So I was deciding to ask that man to give me the smoothies recepies without asking me the money…
    I was looking for his email to ask him help me for the sake of God and no money.
    Now dear Kyle, I have two questions
    first, do you know any natural remedy for tonaki tinnitus?
    second, can you share those smothies that was claimed to cure tonaki tinnitus here? In this way no more people will pay for it and they can also try if they work or not.
    Thank you so much

    1. Hi,

      Unfortunately I don’t know of any good natural remedy. There is are a lot of remedies out there but I’m really not all that sure what is best and if anything works all that well.

  22. Thanks Kyle
    I have suffered from severe Tinnitus for 20 yrs.
    PEAKED my interest at “myelination” (FYI moment for me)
    He almost had my $$. Lost me at “I dont know how long I can keep this website up”
    Started looking for reviews ….they are all from July. Smh
    Where are the reviews from 50k people?
    Once again THANK YOU. People like me on a fixed income need to be cautious.

  23. If this is a scam, and I’m sure it is, why doesn’t some public spirited person blow it apart by actually buying the ebook and posting it on social media for everyone’s benefit. That would soon shut them up and take away any profit they are making from exploiting other people’s misery.

    1. I’m pretty sure you can find the PDF for free. But the problem is promotion. Even if someone does expose it, there is no guarantee that it will go “viral” and the truth will spread. Its a problem of the truth getting drowned out by lies and misleading promotions… happens all the time unfortunately.

  24. Your article was extremely helpful, for that I say THANKS! I too, had my card out ready to buy because that guy was so f*@#ing believable. I mean, damn, even his voice would quaver when talking about “JO” who is very likely a goldfish. Luckily my bs meter went off and I found your article.
    The ringing in my ears did appear suddenly, literally overnight but in the last year it has intensified. The thing about your article is that it points out the ingredients are actually helpful and you go on to explain what foods and how they benefit. I am a firm believer in treating the problem rather than the symptom. And the dumbass thing about my situation is that I am not eating those things. I have the mothering thing backwards. Take care of kids first and mom last. My son is a climber, and I make sure he gets what his body needs but not my own. Go figure. So off I go the grab these ingredients and will work to implement them in my own awful eating habits. (That my son pointed out to me the other day) He is literally throwing back at me all the things I say to him on a regular basis. I should have known he would eventually notice!!
    Thanks Kyle
    PS if you could throw out some recipes XD

  25. Hello Kyle, although I suspect this Todd Carson is a fraudulent front for another cure scam, you do yourself a great disservice in the grammatical errors in your post which leads me to believe you are not in a position to throw stones. You have no real proof to substantiate your claims. Other than to simply dislike these unforgivable scams is not enough. I appreciate what you have tried to do in saving many from falling into false hope. As a tinnitus sufferer I would give anything to find a real cure just for the peace of silence and intend on contacting Mr. “Carson” as his email states we can to tell him I think whoever is pretending to be him is obviously a joke and phony.

    1. Hi Catherine,

      How do my grammatical errors disqualify me from being able to call this a scam? This is obviously a scam. It is full of lies. I showed you the images that were shown in the presentation were completely fake. That was one piece of solid proof I had. True… much of it I couldn’t prove to be a lie, but I think most people will agree that it is.

    2. Hello Catherine Schwartz,

      First of all, it is unfortunate that you are also suffering from this condition. I wish that you find the relief that is right for you.

      Your comment amazes me.
      It seems you are unable to perceive the dozens and dozens of comments from people who felt so moved by Kyle’s apparently futile effort of saving them from falling for a likely scam that they actually took the effort to respond. If you knew just precious little percentage of people respond on sites, you would have phrased your sentence “I appreciate what you have tried to do in saving many from falling into false hope.” as “I appreciate what you have done in order to save many from falling into false hope.”

      About the need for proof:
      Kyle neither intended nor needed to prove that the suggested ingredients did not work.
      What he intended to do was to direct the reader’s attention to the marketing and manipulation techniques being used and the falsehoods that existed in and around the video presentation.
      In order to do that nobody needs to use grammatically correct language and Kyle was perfectly successful in accomplishing said intention as proven by the many comments written by thankful individuals, at times even using horribly bad grammar, as many are obviously not even native English speakers and in some cases elderly folks with growing difficulties. Losing money on this protocol is not going to be one of those difficulties anymore thanks to the work and diligence of Kyle.

      Throwing stones: I do not see in which manner did Kyle do this? Is lying or misleading people has the same weight in your eyes as making grammatical errors?
      I think not. To quote Rudolf Steiner, a great visionary, thinker and reformer: “In our times the main damage is done by people who tend towards untruth. This widespread tendency of people to falsehood is at the base of almost all the problems of our times.”
      One hundred years ago he stated that on December 3, 1919.
      It is a moral responsibility to shed light on falsehoods and untruths and to state the truth.
      Which, by the way, I think Kyle has done well, encouraging the reader to do their own research but also pointing out that some of the statements are corroborated by the medical research that exists.

      I do not think Kyle ever mentions whether he likes or dislikes the video presentation and all it entails about the Tonaki Protocol so I am not sure where you gather your thought that “to simply dislike these unforgivable scams is not enough”. You, on the other, do the judgmental word “unforgivable”.

      I needed to say all of this because I think it remains important to be vigilant in uncovering untruth, falsehood and lies and to declare what is true, right and beautiful in the world. And I think Kyle has done a good job of this.

  26. Actually, remember, it was quite funny, because there was a picture of “Jo” sitting huddled in a corner like a trapped animal….that’s when I knew the whole thing was a scam!

  27. In some countries this guy would be arrested and locked up these con men are excellent at conning people who are desperate,
    Anybody reading I’ve had tinitus for 20+ years and the only thing that helps me are hearing aids ! my hearing loss is mild but they amplify the sound around me and it helps to mask the noise, works for me maybe not for you.

  28. Anyone who participates in producing scam programs or websites like this should wake up with tinnitus…had it for 3 years now and it’s a life changer. Disappointed to know this is a scam but thank you for helping me see that it most definitely is.

  29. I think it’s a little funny that these scammers don’t realize the rage experienced by sufferers of extreme tinnitus, suicide is common among these sufferers and i would think that at some point people might be so tired of the scammers that before they go they might make a list of folks profiting from their condition like this and start taking them with them when they go.

  30. My ears ring 24/7. Funny coincidence, I was born on Okinawa at Uchitamari! I might have kept this in mind. instead I may add a supplement to my diet since it’s identified, but yeah, man, appreciate the head’s up.

  31. Thank you for pointing a few of the things he said out. The cliche of big pharma hiding this information from the public is total BS. I like the quote, “If any type of alternative medicine is proven to work time after time, then it stops being alternative medicine.” So yes, we would have already heard of this “miracle cure”

  32. How on earth can somebody broadcast something that is believed to be BS when many poor folk, like me, are suffering with Tinnitus and it is beginning to make me wonder if carrying on living is worthwhile. Obviously I want to live with my wonderful Wife but with all that is available in the science world on Medicine there must be SOMETHING that they can invent to combat this horrible complaint. It really is hell, so PLEASE get the drug invention brains working and find out. There MUST be a concoction about to be delivered: no matter what the cost I’ll pay it, PLEASE!!!!

  33. Hi Kyle,

    Thank you so much for taking the time and making to effort to investigate what appears to be a scam….thank you!
    I nearly took money I couldn’t afford to get the product, but thought I had to do research first…..fortunately I found your site!!

    Many thanks and keep up the good work!!

    Kind regards,

    South Africa

    1. No problem Geoff. Share this post to help spread the truth so that others don’t fall victim. Lets shut down these scams!

  34. Thank you Kyle for this review. Most helpful. I suffer fro tinnitus and i eat all foods mentioned regularly and leafy greens and broccoli daily. Still have tinnitus but less intensity of volume than 10 years.

  35. goodness..was sooo close to buying..good thing i gave it a break at researched more abt that cobalamine and stuff..good thing came across this article…thanks kyle for digging into this tonaki protocol..now we know.

  36. I am really so tired of the tinnitus I have had for 2 years that sometimes when I see these kind of videos, even if they seem to be made up, I think that I should give it a try and then something stops me. What stops me is that these fu..rs are trying to play with people`s desperation. Thanks Kyle

  37. Great work, thanks
    I guess there’s no real remedy to cure that, except self work.
    Sometimes I hear a new tone, and immediately I work fast and hard to “shut it down”, mentally, and it always works. Bio-feedback may be the best way to reduce tinnitus.
    As per MY experience with my (40 y/o) tinnitus-
    It was the end of 1981 and the beginning of 82′, I left all back home and went down to Dahab beach, Sini, and lived there for 6 months. All tinnitus rings went off two weeks into that vacation. Later in my life I studied that those Very Low Frequency sounds that prevail in crowded areas (cities etc’) cause anxiety and depression, and that my tinnitus ringings were the “warning bells”, which my body normally uses to alarm me (just as pain does).
    I believe 21 days on such a Japanese Island would do the same to each of us, tinny tuners…(-:

  38. Thank you for all ur insight on this subject. I almost ordered it then saw it was a download not an actual product, so I decided to research n look at the reviews. So glad I did. Thank you so much for your reviews on what looks to be a scam when it sounds to be too good it probably is. Much appreciated. Olga

  39. At first I was so happy that my problem will resolved but when I listen to the end , it s was something illogical , one person can find a solution for tinnitus that major company failed to solve it ,This man should be judged for deception

  40. thanks Kyle. I’vefollowed up on several of these miracle thingies for stuff i have — tinnitus, nail fungus, and a couple more. First thing i do is google “Tonaki Tinnitus Protocol, problems” (or whatever, problems) and google sends me answers mixed in with the trash. When i got down almost to the price, i turned to my wife and said $37 — and a few paragraphs later, $37 popped up as the price knocked down from around $1000. The other sites do the same — a thousand (or thousands) dollars value but being sold to you (and me) for only $49, or $37, or somewhere between.

    Anyway, Kyle, thanks for doing the research and sharing it with all of us out here in internet land. Many appreciations


  41. Thanks for your article. I painfully listened to the video, but several things didn’t make sense. He supposedly waited until the formula was perfect before having his wife try it out. Makes no sense at all. If you really thought you had found something, you would start trying it immediately. You also pointed out several other issues that scream scam. The reason these scams work is because people are desperate. I really wish it was real, but it is clearly a scam. Thanks for your comments.

  42. My wife laughed out loud when she saw the part in the video about the remote island and the lady cooking something, which resulted in a miracle cure. Apparently, she had seen that very same “theme” in some other product video that purported to be the cure. In reality, TODD CARSON is just too smooth and polished . . . not your everyday guy trying to do good in the world. Don’t be surprised if we seen him in some soap opera, etc. in the near future . . . and with a completely different name!!

  43. Thank you — I found this review to be very useful, particularly since I have a background writing educational materials both for MDs and for pharmaceutical reps (so I have some understanding of nutritional support for neurological conditions). The fact that you mention the potential benefits of lecithin, quercetin and cobalamin increases my trust in your report. Although these nutrients (and others) have more anecdotal evidence than rigorous scientific support in alleviation of tinnitus, I may just give them a try — and spend the $37 on supplements rather than on the smoothie recipes.

  44. Excellent article, very professional and well presented. I have tinnitus, not severe, but I have been down the no true cure road. Watching The Tonaki Tinnitus Protocol video, brought one of my Grandfather’s favorite sayings ‘If it sounds too good to be true, it probably isn’t true” Thank you for taking the time to post your article. Regards.

  45. Excellent report. Thank you so much for your hard work. With all the bogus stuff on the Internet, it’s a pleasant surprise to read something really informative .

  46. Thanks for sharing your examination of this. Would be great to have a section that addresses “let food be your medicine” — i.e., for a condition such as this, could it be that a focused, concentrated attention to getting in the 12 nutrients (what are they?) could make a difference.

  47. I was on the fence about this. My policy is to not purchase anything that doesn’t use PayPal. To have to.imput card numbers is the warning sign. He nearly had me convinced until I saw the payment method.

  48. I’m so glad I found your site. I was about to buy this ‘product’ but the presentation was so polished and glossy and ‘Todd’ so believable I thought I’d better research it. When I realised it was an online product the alarm bells really sounded. I’ve had tinnitus for about 5 years and have been eating those foods all my life and they haven’t prevented it. What makes me really angry is that he emphasised that sufferers could end up with dementia, maybe, I don’t know, but that is playing on people’s fear. Disgraceful! Thank you so much for exposing this scam. All the best from London.

  49. I did not time the video but it must have been close on 1 hour of my life lost in the process despite the many hints that it was a scam yet the longer I watched it the more I was intent on going the distance !

  50. Dear Kyle
    Thank you for throwing light on this horrible scam.
    I fully agree that the guy must be an actor .
    The way he connects different part of the story is disgusting.
    It is a pitty how people try to make money these days.

    Thank you again


  51. Honestly, this was so helpful. I have been debating getting this but felt it was such a scam but I’m desperate for the tinnitus relief. Thank you for the honest review.

  52. Thanks for the truth, it frustrates me how people take advantage of others weakness ☹️. If I discovered something that helps I would want to share it without being paid for it. ?

  53. While I suffer tinnitus for many years, I never fall in the trap of the easy solution developed by an obscure local witch -doc character in the other end of the world… I appreciate your investigation and commentary.

    One Q… do the chemicals/ base products you identified, do the trick for tinnitus? are there any honest supplements that contain these products? Thanks again.

  54. This is about the third or fourth time a cure for Tinnitus has been put on the web, there was one about Australia Aborigines also with a fake cure, plus a couple of others. I suggest the people who suffer from Tinnitus get a petition together and send it to the Government to get the Health department to actually find a cure.

  55. I fully agree with Kyle regarding this so-called Tinnitus Cure. If this Todd Carson wanted to reach out and help others with this affliction,, he would just offer the product and not try to add hundreds of dollars of extras material that have nothing to do with the so-called cure. Tinnitus can be caused by many other reason than stated and I truly believe there is no absolute cure.

  56. Kyle, I would like to suggest taking 1/2 a teaspoon of mustard doesn’t matter what kind to relieve cramping. It works for me. Thanks for the helpful review of this cure-all. Kay

  57. My tinnitus is caused by grinding my teeth especially when my father in law acted up. Now that he is gone so is my Tinnitis. My dr said the nerves are very sensitive.

  58. Kyle, YOU ROCK as a brainy man of honor…Tinnitus scams are out there and I have been burned over the last 20 years more than twice. Excellent work with the stock photos……. Cheers to you. Chris / Toronto.

  59. You’re a saint for watching that horrible video to finish. Watching 10 minutes of it gave me tinnitus. The lengthly video alone proves “Todd” is a marketing moron. Dr.’s at UCLA constantly lecture (and tell patients) about (for instance) taking Vitamin D and melatonin (for sleep) etc. which neither big pharma or MD’s make $ from. While there can be glaring ethics issues with big pharma (toxic drugging of our children for ADHD for example) nothing “Todd” claims constitutes this. What a bozo. Wonderful website, so glad I stumbled along.

  60. Thanks for the review. I agree with Amanda I began to watch this video but as a tinnitus sufferer of 12 years I couldn’t manage the insincere droning. Marketing mistake for the company in my experience a lot of people who suffer from tinnitus also, due to the constant noise, have very short patience levels so watching actors waffle on has probably saved thousands of people money as the switch off swearing. Apologies for my grammar I shall castigate myself as my comments are now irrelevant due to poor English according to the rules laid out in a previous comment by Catharine Schwartz. 😉
    On the plus side this ridiculous product led me to this website which will hopefully be helpful in other ways in the future.

  61. I agree with your overview… Unfortunately, this market regime has become quite common. It’s a numbers game. They get about 2 out of every 50 enquiries. It’s frustrating as I have seen this in other ailments like Diabetes, Heart disease, Arthritis etc. Long dragged out story that is always leading to the special ingredient they found. But wait, if you order this? You will get a one time offer of…. Bla-Bla, Bla. ;-). For the record. I bought the smoothie recipe from this site as I was desperate for my partners symptoms. Not bad smoothies. However, I still see a long journey. Ever situation is different for all of our own health journeys. We will stay vigilant! Thank you!!

  62. Hi thanks for this information I have watched so many of these videos over the years not just for tinnitus just basically if there is anything that is there to help me health-wise cause like yourself and alot of others my health is important to me I do have mild tintus I think but it knocks me off balance more and I do get the occasional ringing.
    But as I said I’ve watched so many videos and usually it’s turned off half way through but not with this one this payed actor as you suggested nearly had me because he nearly broke down crying just at the right moments but the thing that was so compelling it was like a sad happy short movie and even though at some points I thought I can smell BS here but I then thought but what if so I stayed to the end but I don’t part with my cash easy lol and like you I done some googling and found your website and got some answers.

    As you said though the video had flaws I never noticed them as easily as you because I was swallowing some of the story but in my opinion the biggest flaw in this video and it bugged me nearly all the way through was this close knit family were falling apart his wife had been to hell and back and made it through not once spoke on camera to say how grateful she was for her husband finding this cure Maybe she was camera shy but even if she was it could have just made it that little bit more believable but instead we were left with a good actor trying to pull the wool over our eyes and just like you i find these videos disgusting preying on inicent people looking for help thanks.

  63. Thanks for the review which was very interesting. Whilst you findings are disappointing for anyone looking for a way to improve Tinnitus, I just wondered whether during your review you found any other products which improve this distressing condition??

    1. Hi Mike. Unfortunately I have not come across any good products for tinnitus at this point. Eating healthy and living as stress free as possible seem to be one of the only good ways to combat this condition.

      But if I do come across anything I will be sure to let all my readers know.

  64. Thank you so much for the information. I have been making these smoothies for months and my tinitus actually appears to have got worse. I agree my diet includes all the ingredients in the outline so none of this made sense to me. I will just keep looking for a way to relieve the symptoms. I have always been a bit of a vitamin freak so will have to keep trying. Kind regards Dale – by the way I am female

  65. Thanks so much Kyle, unfortunately I do have tinnitus, and I did get “sucked in” to this! I really do want to try something to try to relieve the ringing in my ears, but now am afraid to buy into anything. If you have any other solution, please let me know!

  66. Kyle, unfortunately I fell for the trap and ordered it. After reading the complete instructions I felt the Protocol was extremely labor intensive – not to mention the cost in securing all the products required to make the smoothies. At that point, I decided to ask for a refund of my money. I spoke to a young lady (with an attitude) that offered to give me a “partial” refund since they had already given me a discount from $37 to $27. So I got $10 back. Not wishing to debate the issue any further I accepted the small refund. To my surprise, a few days later I got a nice email from a lady of the company (I forget the name) asking me if I was satisfied with the purchase and if there was anything else she could do for me. I explained the issue regarding the partial refund and she answered back to tell me that a full refund would be credited to my card. Sure enough, two days later the remaining $17 had been credited to my account.
    I guess honesty prevailed in my case or else…I dodged a bullet.

  67. Please I don’t want to receive anymore of your mails and ideas PLEASE remove my name from your list PLEASE PLEASE it is a lot of crap

  68. I have done this recipe about 4 times now. NO HELP WHATSOEVER. I do not recommend that you even try this or pay for it. Sorry but it doesn’t work.

  69. Thank you for this honest appraisal. You went to a lot of trouble to investigate this product and it is enormously helpful to a prospective buyer to be able to read an objective analysis. Based on the lengthy on-line presentation and on your summary, the reader can make up his own mind. Keep up the good work. The internet needs people like you.
