I’ve Been Hearing Tinnitus For A Number of Years….
Since my middle 30’s, I’ve had a buzzing, whistling, screeching sound in my ears that I’ve never really been able to totally get rid of. Oh, sure – sometimes the sounds quiet down for a while (or so it seems), and I don’t have near the problem getting to sleep that I used to have – before I learned some techniques that make it much easier to live with my tinnitus.
Through years of research, testing and trying different ideas, herbal remedies and techniques, I have learned how to live a quality life, even though the tinnitus is almost always there. What ultimately has worked for me? Getting enough sleep, more fruits and veggies in my diet (and, just plain LESS food altogether) and more, regular exercise. Plus, some meditation when the noises seem to get too loud. Click here for some great home remedies for relief from tinnitus.
No Medical Treatments Available
Unfortunately, what works for me won’t necessarily work for another tinnitus sufferer. You see, there is a physical and an emotional aspect to our tinnitus. Mostly, the physical part is very small compared to the emotional component – most medical doctors cannot find a single physical cause with most tinnitus sufferers! No identifiable cause, treatments are limited! It’s this lack of a clearly identifiable cause that makes our tinnitus so difficult to treat. And, that’s why there are such a wide range of treatments – what works for one person doesn’t necessarily provide relief for another. If you need more help with your tinnitus than I have here, read these great book reviews.
I encourage all visitors to Hearing Tinnitus to read as much as possible on the subject of tinnitus, in order to get a better understanding of what will work to alleviate their tinnitus. Please beware of anyone who touts a “cure” for tinnitus – unless a physical cause can be found and treated, there is no cure for tinnitus. Is there relief from the noises? You bet – don’t ever give up hope.
