When I saw KT's post, I was gladwilling to try turmeric. I have been taking turmeric capsules off and on because of it's inflammatory properties and had already discovered that it improved my mood. So I began taking two capsules of Turmeric (Curcuma longa) root 1,200 mg five days ago. On the third day, I noticed that I could carry on a conversation with a friend seven or eight feet away sitting on a different piece of furniture and not have to ask her what she said. And she has a European accent! I am continuing the two capsules daily and will report on the outcome. I have had noticeable hearing loss with bad tinnitus for about six years. No injury. I am 67 years old. Thank you, KT!

I was taking turmeric for inflammation after ingesting too much manufactured glutamic acid (MSG). It seemed to open my ears up and I could hear so much better.

It should be noted I had a fractured skull with ruptured eardrums decades ago that reduced my ability to hear well. After ingesting turmeric I don't have to have people keep repeating what they say. Sound is no longer "muffled".
