    Is a Quick and Permanent Cure for Tinnitus possible?

     

    The increasing success of a new approach to curing tinnitus offers hope for all sufferers…

     

    Almost 36 million people in the United States suffer from tinnitus, and around 6 million in the UK. Some experience only a mild form, but for many the constant noise in their ears is a serious debilitating condition affecting their concentration, causing depression, and robbing them of a normal quality of life.

    Defined as ‘the perception of sound in the absence of any corresponding external sound’, the noise may be heard in one ear, in both ears or in the middle of the head, or it may be difficult to pinpoint. Commonly it is heard as a ringing, or buzzing, hissing, beeping, clicking, pulsing, whooshing or whistling sound (to name a few).

     

    There are many types of tinnitus – tonal, pulsatile, muscular, vascular, external/middle/inner ear tinnitus, nerve pathway tinnitus, and others – and there are many factors that can cause it…

     

    … And therein lies the problem in finding a treatment that will work. Tinnitus is a systematic condition which is triggered by multiple physical, emotional and environmental factors; and it is also empowered by individual influences. Every person is completely different, and no two reasons for tinnitus are exactly the same.

     

    This means that, sadly, there is no magic pill or fix-it-all product.

     

    Curing tinnitus can rarely be achieved by tackling only one aspect of the condition. Using a one-dimensional treatment like drugs, herbal supplements, or even detox diets or surgery is likely to fail. It might address the symptoms temporarily, but very often the condition returns – and worse than before.

     

    Unless all internal factors which are responsible for tinnitus are treated and eliminated, the inner ear nerves will continue to cause the ringing, beeping and pulsing sounds.

     

    So is there any hope of a permanent cure for tinnitus?

    Maybe now…

     

    If the sufferer can correctly diagnose his or her individual condition, and tackle the real underlying cause and the particular circumstances that are promoting their tinnitus... then there is indeed hope for a permanent cure.

     

    That is the focus of a multi-dimensional, holistic approach that is finding growing success, offering a personalised solution to each sufferer.
