This leaves the non-treatable types permanent.
There are no cures directly for tinnitus, but
because often times tinnitus is caused by a
physical condition that can be treated, the
tinnitus may also dissapear as the physical
condition dissapears. Permanent tinnitus can be
very stressful psychologically to the affected
individual as it distracts them affected from
mental tasks and interferes with sleep. This is
particularly when there is no external
sound. Often times these individuals will use a
device that will generate an artificial noise to
mask the tinnitus sound.This process is called
tinnitus retraining therapy.
It is a widely known and practiced remedy to the

this makes the noise easier to ignore allowing
the individual to concentrate on mental tasks.

much more widespread in the Tinnitus can be
found in one or both like it is coming from the
middle of
ears or sometimes it feels your head.
The Symptoms of Tinnitus Tinnitus is most
commonly found in elderly people although
possibly due to the different lifestyles it is
becoming much more common in younger people
now. Maybe this is due to the fact that people
are living in noisier environments today.
The sounds which are heard vary from patient to
patient. Some patients hear a musical tone,
although most patients hear something which
sounds more like a hissing or whistling or a
buzzing or a ringing noise. For a lot of
patients, it is more of an inconvenience and
doesnt affect their daily lives although for a
number of patients, it is so bad that they need
some kind of treatment to relieve the
symptoms . The Causes of Tinnitus
Tinnitus is (cochlea). brain which
caused by damage to the nerves in the inner ear
These nerves transmit electrical impulses to the
the brain then interprets as sounds. When these
nerves are damaged, the signal becomes
distorted. When this distorted signal gets to
the brain, the brain interprets it as a noise
which is Tinnitus.

them.
The Treatment of Tinnitus For most patients,
there is no cure for Tinnitus. Most treatments
simply relieve the symptoms by masking the cause
of Tinnitus.
Tinnitus is sometimes strongly related to
the patients level of via the use of the
symptoms of
stress. By managing this level of stress
sedatives, tranquilizers or anti-depressants,
tinnitus can be relieved.
Some drugs which affect the conduction of
electrical impulses in the affected nerves have
been found to relieve the symptoms of
stress. There are a number of self help measures
which patients can employ either on their own or
in tandem with any assistance that a doctor can
prescribe. These include listening to soothing
music on a personal stereo before the patient
goes to sleep. There are white noise generators
which can mask the noise inside your head. This
means that you cant hear the noise generated by
tinnitus.

Tinnitus Nearing Epidemic Status Every year,
millions of ordinary people with diverse
lifestyles, develop a ringing in their ears. The
condition is called tinnitus. According to the
American Tinnitus Association, as many as 50
million Americans may be suffering with
tinnitus. So many people are afflicted with

Tinnitus - The 3 Emotional Stages It is a
vicious cycle because tinnitus causes stress and
anxiety and is also worsened by stress and
anxiety. Worrying over the tinnitus can cause it
to become worse. Lack of sleep due to ringing in
the ears leads to fatigue which makes the ear
ringing worse. These are just some of the mental
and emotional side effects of tinnitus. Expel
tinnitus and the roller coaster of emotions At
times it may be more annoying for people who do
not know what is wrong with them or who have
non-supportive doctors that tell them to "get
over it" or to find a way to live with
tinnitus. It is a vicious cycle because tinnitus
causes stress and anxiety and is also worsened
by stress and anxiety. Worrying over the tinnitus
can cause it to become worse. Lack of sleep due
to ringing in the ears leads to fatigue which
makes the ear ringing worse. These are just some
of the mental and emotional side effects of
tinnitus. Many people with a hissing in the
ears, like me, will discover that it completely
interferes with natural essential functions of
their lives. You may have a hard time
concentrating, remembering things, listening to
others and focusing on tasks. This makes it
nearly impossible to function properly on a job
or in society. Many people with tinnitus go
through the same process as people with other
medical conditions and disorders. At first you
may feel denial, then anger and frustration
(especially if you are being told there is no
cure and nothing will help) and then you may feel
hopeless and depressed. You will think why this
had to happen to you and harp on the fact that
your life will never be the same. Next comes
fear. You may worry that you will never live a
normal life again, fear that this ringing in the
ears will cause havoc with your job and your
family, fear that you will never be able to enjoy
the same things and fear that you are going
crazy or that there is something mentally
"wrong" with you. At some point along the way if
you hope to find relief, you will need to find
acceptance. Acceptance- With acceptance comes
the realization that while you do have this
condition and there is no cure for ear ringing,
that doesn't mean you have to be a victim for
the rest of your life. You will soon come to the
realization that there is hope for your tinnitus
and that you have stopped focusing on the ear
ringing all the time you can allow your body to
start the recovery. Also one should also take
note of the fact that this roller coaster of
emotions does not only effect the tinnitus
sufferer but their families as well.
11
How Stress And Anxiety Are Connected To
Tinnitus Stress can cause many problems and
exacerbate others, including Tinnitus, or
ringing in the ears. Many individuals suffer from
this malady and can deal with it on a daily
basis until stress levels rise and then the
Tinnitus becomes significantly worse. Of course,
there are many different reasons why an
individual may develop Tinnitus, but stress and
anxiety can intensify the effects of the ringing
in the ears. Because of this individuals with
Tinnitus need to manage the stress in their
lives to minimize the effects. In general, when
an individual suffers from tinnitus the body
feels as if it is being attacked at all times.
So, the effects are never-ending and the body
ultimately responds in a physical way with
additional problems like insomnia, anxiety, and
even depression. Once these responses occur they
only serve to intensify the tinnitus, which is
just a violent circle. Because of this it is
incredibly important for sufferers to find a way
to relax and keep their symptoms at bay (as much
as possible) instead of stressing out and
exacerbating them. Of course, this is much
easier to say than to actually implement. But,
nevertheless, it is very important to make an
effort to achieve. Sufferers of tinnitus know
this very well and try their best not to stress
out because the ringing in their ears only gets
worse. It is unfortunate that tinnitus makes
individuals stress out over their symptoms and
then their stressing only causes their symptoms
to worsen. Fortunately, for individuals with
tinnitus there are ways to get stress under
control before it gets out of hand and causes the
individual worse ringing in their ears. One
example of a way to reduce stress is to simply
exercise. It has been proven that exercise really
helps individuals relax, forget about whats
bothering them, and simply enjoy life. Those
with tinnitus should exercise every single day
in order to relax, forget about their ringing
ears for just a bit, and hopefully relax enough
to keep the symptoms from getting too bad.
Another good option for reducing stress is to
take part in yoga and meditation and even have a
massage on a regular basis. Nobody wants to have
tinnitus and those who do certainly dont want
their symptoms to get any worse than they have
to. Due to this individuals suffering from
tinnitus should make all efforts to live a low
key and relaxing life that has as little stress
as possible. And, in addition to this tinnitus
sufferers should do their best to exercise and
take part in relaxation exercises to keep what
stress they do have at bay. Many individuals
suffer from tinnitus and of them approximately
90 experience exaggerated symptoms when
subjected to stressful situations. Because of
this individuals with tinnitus must do all they
can in order to reduce stress in their lives so
they may live an enjoyable life.

Tinnitus It's Not A Disease, It's A Symptom! If
you have Tinnitus then you are most probably
familiar with the most common causes.some
of There is a whole list of them for you to
choose from. Only when you start to analyze the
known facts and their probable consequences will
the whole scope of Tinnitus start to
unfold. There can be a million reasons why you
have Tinnitus. Let's take a brief look at some
of the most common symptoms for tinnitus. How
many of these symptoms can you apply to yourself?
Add more if you have to. Lack of concentration,
Headaches, Fatigue, Social retreat, Depressive
moods, Lack of patience, Nervousness, Panic
attacks, Anxiety, Apprehension, Stress and
tension, Lack of self confidence,
Insomnia, Exhaustion, Devaluation, Other than
the hearing loss which is physical, all other
symptoms listed here are of a subconscious
nature. Let's get 3 important things into
perspective here. I will repeat these 3
sentences until they are tattooed into your soul.
  1. Tinnitus is not a disease, it is a symptom!
  2. You are not sick and you are not mentally ill.
    You are being warned!
  3. You will defeat tinnitus if you accept it as a
    part of you.

13
As soon as you are ready to accept that the
tinnitus is a part of you, the sooner you can
expect to make progress. The power of the mind
is extraordinary. Think about this carefully. If
tinnitus succeeded in turning your life upside
down then accept the fact that all it used to
achieve misery was your own mind. That's quite
an achievement isn't it ? That's how powerful
your mind is. If it has the capability to make
your life a complete misery then surely it can be
re-programmed to do the opposite. It's entirely
up to you. The solution lies within yourself and
your ability to learn. What do we know about
the causes of tinnitus?. Where does it have its
roots? Ever heard of social sickness? Me either.
It's a phrase that I like though. Here in
Germany it's called Volkskrankheit ( has
nothing to do with cars ). I once tried to
compile a list of all elements which I suspected
may have contributed to MY own tinnitus.
Obviously, I listed the negative aspects of my
life over a 10 year period. Some of these things
could have been avoided, most of them were
linked to each other. Don't forget, this is only
a list of things that I think should be
mentioned. I've tried not to generalize and I've
tried my best to stay honest, even if it means
confessing to some bad sins. To be perfectly
honest it's not as dramatic as it looks. It just
looks outrageous when written down! Marital
Stress, Heavy smoking, Drug and medication
abuse, (i.e. Valium, Marijuana,
Cocaine) Relationship crisis, unhealthy eating
habits, Loud noises, Lack of exercise, High
cholesterol, High blood sugar rate, Personal
loss, Caffeine addiction ( coffee and cola )
Lack of sleep, Financial Problems, Overweight,
Business pressures, Inclination to worry about
everything. So......there we have it.
14
It looks terrible I know. The worst thing is that
I am one of millions who used to live like this.
If you can't identify with anything written on
this list then you shouldn't have tinnitus. Any
one of these elements on their own would be
harmful enough for any person. Combine them and
you're left with a time bomb waiting to
explode. So now we have two lists. The first one
above describes the symptoms and the second one
describes possible causes. If you look carefully
at the causes it won't take much imagination to
conjure up a "symptom list" like the one above.
What else do you expect?. I dare you......Take a
pen and paper...write down your own "bad list".
Be absolutely honest and write down all the
things that you aren't proud of or maybe would
rather forget. Write down all the things you
would like to change if you had a magic wand. (
My bad list is there for everyone to see. You
can hide yours o) By the way, you don't have to
have tinnitus to create a list like mine. I
would be willing to bet that EVERYONE can come up
with a list similar to mine. I say only similar
because I know that not everyone is overweight,
or smokes or tried drugs. Think carefully about
what you are reading on your list. If you are
very honest, you will find that you don't need a
magic wand to shorten this list. The only person
on this planet that can change this list to
something to be proud of is YOU! I consider
myself to be lucky. Tinnitus gave me a chance to
re-shuffle my life. Once more...Don't forget...
  1. Tinnitus is not a disease, it is a symptom.
  2. You are not sick and you are not mentally ill.
    You are being warned!
  3. You will defeat tinnitus if you accept it as a
    part of you.

After an "auditory crash" two years ago which
left me with a temporary loss of all hearing I
had no other choice than to take action.
15
  • I've been looking for an English Term for the
    German word Hörsturz. In fact this term is made
    of 2 words.
  • Hör (to hear ) and Sturz ( to crash ). I find
    this a fitting term
  • Anyway this "Auditory Crash" of hearing lasted
    almost 2 days at the most and thanks to my
    doctor, I was up and about a week later.
  • After reading many books and collecting all the
    information I could
  • find, I decided to take action. I didn't know it
    then, but the decision to cut out everything
    that was harming me probably saved my life.
  • Did you already write down your own list ? If
    not...let's imagine this is your list.
  • Where do you start?
  • There are some things you can change straight
    away and without hesitation. Other things will
    require great patience, lots of time and the
    will to change.
  • "Let's start at the very beginning, a very good
    place you start" ( Richard Rodgers 1902 1979 )
  • Once more...Don't forget...
  • Tinnitus is not a disease, it is a symptom.
  • You are not sick and you are not mentally ill.
    You are being warned!

Tinnitus Preaching To The Choir In Your
Ears How much screaming will you tolerate before
taking decisive action. I have learnt to preach
to the choir in my ears. I did so because there
came a time a when I realized that no one and
nothing was going to rid me of my
tinnitus. Just a small reminder of some of the
therapies I have tried in order to find some
peace and quite in my life Acupuncture,
psychotherapy, hypnotherapy, infusions, Valium,
Anti-depressants, orthodontic treatment, hearing
aids, masking aids, "Tinnitus Re-Training"
program, etc. I was asked to wear a specially
designed corset to strengthen my back. I was
asked to wear a brace by an orthodontic
specialist. I have been advised to take Botox
and now I am being advised to try a new "Herbal
Tinnitus Formula" which may or may not help
relieve Tinnitus. To add to all this, I spent at
least 6 weeks in a Tinnitus clinic for
rehabilitation measures. I have been off work for
almost 1 year and finally lost my job due to my
absence.
Written down it all looks very dramatic and all
in all, a pretty long story to tell. These are
the negative aspects I had to learn to accept and
forget. These elements are history and must stay
that way. The most common thing that most
Tinnitus victims share is the fact we will do
practically anything to get rid of the screaming
in our ears. We will believe anything we are
told and follow all instructions. We believe
because we trust what we are hearing and we all
look forward to the day when our Tinnitus is
gone. Unfortunately we are often left in despair
and frustration when we realize that the above
therapies don't work and in 90 of all cases,
have to admit that our Tinnitus is going to be a
part of our every day lives. This is hard to
accept for anyone.
If you can established and accept this fact then
you will become aware that the only way out of
Tinnitus oblivion you're your own will. The cure
lies within yourself. Without stepping on too
many toes, I must admit that the medical field
did absolutely nothing to ease my Tinnitus. There
are of course many theories as to why we get
tinnitus and how to treat it but at the end of
the day there isn't much that common medicine can
do for us. There is away out of this hell and
the only person that will make it happen is you.
Ask yourself what you would do to get rid of your
own
17
Tinnitus. We have already established that we
would do anything to rid ourselves of this
torture.
Tinnitus can be ignored. It's a simple trick.
Like most tricks it has to be learnt and
practiced. One of my biggest dreams was learning
to play the Didgeridoo. I went out and brought
one and tried to teach myself to play it. After
much frustration and days of trying to get a
sound out of it, I finally succeeded. I got a
looooong good sound out of it. It sounded really
good. The only problem was that the sound
diminished after 10 seconds because I had to
breath IN The only sound that comes from a
didgeridoo is when you breath OUT. The trick is
something known as "circular breathing". In
other words, breathing in and out at the same
time. Believe it or not, it's possible to breathe
In and OUT at the same time and still live to
tell the story. However, after weeks and weeks
of practice, I learnt how to master "circular
breathing".
I hope you can see the point I am trying to make.
Learning to ignore Tinnitus is like learning to
play the didgeridoo. It needs practice and
willpower in able to succeed. Please let me
repeat this phrase once more because it is very
important you understand this. You can learn to
ignore Tinnitus if you know how. Anyone can learn
to ignore Tinnitus. Your mind has been finely
tuned to ignore things its doesn't want to
accept. This capability is evident in everyone
alive. Think carefully, how many things do you
forget or ignore because you don't like
them. Everyday we are confronted with elements
we would rather forget. Tinnitus is another one
of them. Learn to reduce its importancy and
concentrate more on enjoying quality time. Its
absolutely vital you start realizing that
Tinnitus is NOT a disease. You are not sick and
you are not suffering from a mental disorder!
You must get your life back on track again and
start enjoying your life. Tinnitus is a power
that can be manipulated. Haven't you been
manipulated enough already? Isn't it time you got
yourself back into the driving seat and stated
taking control again.
18
You can't let something so unimportant as
Tinnitus control your life. This defies all
logic! I did the same and managed to change my
lifestyle completely. I stopped smoking I lost
50 pounds in weight. I started to do work outs
and go jogging I stopped worrying about Tinnitus
In fact...I stopped worrying about things I
couldn't change I wrote an e book and created a
website devoted to living with Tinnitus. All
these things I did myself. No help from anyone .I
used Tinnitus as a base of energy and
manipulated it to meet my own needs. You know
what?...I still have the choir in my ears and it
is still loud at time, but here again so is
life. The only difference now is that I am the
preacher and I am in control. Happy preaching!

  • Stop Tinnitus Symptoms And Reclaim Silence!
  • Tinnitus may affect more than half of the
    American population. A curable ailment within
    the inner ear canal, tinnitus is noticed by
    continual ringing, hissing swishing noises in
    ears that will not subside. When you suffer from
    tinnitus, you will feel like you're insane and
    no one else can hear the noises.
  • But you don't have to suffer tinnitis symptoms
    are curable.
  • 5 Small Steps To Silence Tinnitus Symptoms
  • Tinnitus symptoms may be common amongst more than
    twenty five percent of the American population.
    A curable ailment originating from problems in
    the inner ear canal, tinnitus is inherent with
    endless buzzing, ringing or swishing noises that
    never subside. When the levels of ear ringing
    are high, it can constitute feelings of insanity
    and leave you feeling all alone. But you don't
    have to feel isolated noises in ears can be
    treated and homeopathic treatments have helped
    many sufferers ease the pain.
  • tinnitis symptoms can come in a single episode,
    temporarily for a few days or weeks, or for
    good. The noises in ears can interfere with an
    individual's ability to concentrate and may also
    cause sleep disturbance with the noises in ears.
  • General tinnitis symptoms and Causes
  • Immense ear wax. When excess wax builds up in the
    ear canal, it can weaken the ability to hear
    outside noises and may worsen noises in ears.
  • Otis media is the medical term for a middle ear
    infection or inflammation of the middle ear. If
    left undiagnosed or untreated, Otis media can
    lead to infection of the mastoid bone behind the
    ear, a ruptured ear drum, and hearing loss.
    Sometimes, tinnitus symptoms begin again
    following a middle ear infection.
  • Brain or head injury. General symptoms of a brain
    or head injury include loss of consciousness,
    confusion, drowsiness, personality change,
    seizures, nausea, headache and vomiting. Roughly
    25 of individuals who sustain a brain or head
    trauma, experience tinnitis symptoms following
    the injury.

20
  • Weak Circulation may be an indication of a
    serious heart disorder. Common symptoms of poor
    circulation include cold hands and feet, white
    fingers, dizziness when standing quickly,
    numbness, varicose veins, migraine headaches,
    tinnitus and noises in ears.
  • High Blood Cholesterol High blood cholesterol
    clogs arteries that supply oxygen to the nerves
    of the inner ear. Lowering blood cholesterol
    levels may reduce tinnitis symptoms.
  • A helpful tinnitus fact
  • Ginkgo biloba has been known to help symptoms of
    tinnitus as well as depression and your memory.
  • 5 Steps To Silence - Ease Common Tinnitus
    Symptoms
  • Avoid all loud sounds and noisy places.
  • Avoid total silence try and mask the tinnitus
    with white noise.
  • Avoid exorbitant use of alcohol, caffeine, or
    aspirin.
  • Wear ear protection when using chain saws, guns,
    lawn mowers, loud music or power tools. Exposure
    to loud noises can make tinnitus worse and can
    also cause additional hearing loss.
  • Control stress levels and learn how to relax in
    stressful situations.
  • Most people with tinnitus also suffer from
    anxiety and lack of sleep. At night when all is
    quiet, the ringing in your ears may sound louder,
    making it harder to sleep. The lack of sleep, in
    turn makes you more tired during the day which
    increases your anxiety and stress. Poor sleep
    induces depression, negative thoughts and a
    resultant higher level of anxiety and tinnitus
    symptoms.

Maidenhair Tree Tinnitus For those of you who
are unaware of what tinnitus is, let me just say
that it is a constant buzzing of one or both
ears. This buzzing of the ears can be a symptom
of something more serious such as the loss of
hearing ability. For people who suffer from this
condition, it is really annoying and they are
trying to find new ways and new medicines to get
rid of their problem once and for all. More than
twenty years ago a doctor carried out a research
to understand the causes of tinnitus and he came
up with a simple and natural solution to treat
the condition. He gave patients a daily dose of
a product that contained ginkgo and he was able
to improve their hearing condition by 35. Some
other patients who were losing their ability to
hear because of their age experienced a
significant improvement in their hearing
condition thanks to the intake of maidenhair
tree products. In a more recent research,
scientists were able to demonstrate that two
doses of 150 mg on a daily basis of maidenhair
tree tinnitus product can enhance the condition
of patients who suffer from the buzzing ear
condition. Maidenhair tree tinnitus products are
the best ally for people because they are
generally not costly when compared to
traditional medicines for the same purpose and
because it does not have any negative effects on
their well-being. The results vary from patient
to patient, but it is known that you will notice
an improvement if you follow the treatment for
twelve weeks or more. The reason why maidenhair
tree products are useful to treat tinnitus is
because they have two vital components vitamin P
and lactone. Vitamin P is good to fight off free
radicals because it works as an
antioxidant. Lactone is good because it will rev
up your protoplasm and you blood circulation
will improve significantly. One thing you need to
consider is that maidenhair tree products are
not always beneficial for everybody. Some
patients will have a good response to the ginkgo
tinnitus treatment while other may not respond
at all. However, as the ginkgo products do not
have negative effects for your health you do not
have to worry because if you do not improve your
hearing condition at least you won't be making
it worse.

Tinnitus Therapy? You Are The Cure! How much
screaming will you tolerate before taking
decisive action. I have learnt to preach to the
choir in my ears. I did so because there came a
time a when I realized that no one and nothing
was going to rid me of my tinnitus. Just a
small reminder of some of the therapies I have
tried in order to find some peace and quite in
my life Acupuncture, psychotherapy,
hypnotherapy, infusions, Valium,
Anti-depressants, orthodontic treatment, hearing
aids, masking aids, "Tinnitus Re-Training"
program, etc. I was asked to wear a specially
designed corset to strengthen my back. I was
asked to wear a brace by an orthodontic
specialist. I have been advised to take Botox
and now I am being advised to try a new "Herbal
Tinnitus Formula" which may or may not help
relieve Tinnitus. To add to all this, I spent at
least 6 weeks in a Tinnitus clinic for
rehabilitation measures. I have been off work for
almost 1 year and finally lost my job due to my
absence.
Written down it all looks very dramatic and all
in all, a pretty long story to tell. These are
the negative aspects I had to learn to accept and
forget. These elements are history and must stay
that way. The most common thing that most
Tinnitus victims share is the fact we will do
practically anything to get rid of the screaming
in our ears. We will believe anything we are
told and follow all instructions. We believe
because we trust what we are hearing and we all
look forward to the day when our Tinnitus is
gone. Unfortunately we are often left in despair
and frustration when we realize that the above
therapies don't work and in 90 of all cases,
have to admit that our Tinnitus is going to be a
part of our every day lives. This is hard to
accept for anyone.
If you can established and accept this fact then
you will become aware that the only way out of
Tinnitus oblivion you're your own will. The cure
lies within yourself. Without stepping on too
many toes, I must admit that the medical field
did absolutely nothing to ease my Tinnitus. There
are of course many theories as to why we get
tinnitus and how to treat it but at the end of
the day there isn't much that common medicine can
do for us.

There is away out of this hell and the only
person that will make it happen is you. Ask
yourself what you would do to get rid of your own
Tinnitus. We have already established that we
would do anything to rid ourselves of this
torture.
Tinnitus can be ignored. It's a simple trick.
Like most tricks it has to be learnt and
practiced. One of my biggest dreams was learning
to play the Didgeridoo. I went out and brought
one and tried to teach myself to play it. After
much frustration and days of trying to get a
sound out of it, I finally succeeded. I got a
looooong good sound out of it. It sounded really
good. The only problem was that the sound
diminished after 10 seconds because I had to
breath IN The only sound that comes from a
didgeridoo is when you breath OUT. The trick is
something known as "circular breathing". In
other words, breathing in and out at the same
time. Believe it or not, it's possible to breathe
In and OUT at the same time and still live to
tell the story. However, after weeks and weeks
of practice, I learnt how to master "circular
breathing".
I hope you can see the point I am trying to make.
Learning to ignore Tinnitus is like learning to
play the didgeridoo. It needs practice and
willpower in able to succeed. Please let me
repeat this phrase once more because it is very
important you understand this. You can learn to
ignore Tinnitus if you know how. Anyone can learn
to ignore Tinnitus. Your mind has been finely
tuned to ignore things its doesn't want to
accept. This capability is evident in everyone
alive. Think carefully, how many things do you
forget or ignore because you don't like them.
Everyday we are confronted with elements we would
rather forget. Tinnitus is another one of them.
Learn to reduce its importancy and concentrate
more on enjoying quality time. Its absolutely
vital you start realizing that Tinnitus is NOT a
disease. You are not sick and you are not
suffering from a mental disorder! You must get
your life back on track again and start enjoying
your life.

Tinnitus is a power that can be manipulated.
Haven't you been manipulated enough already?
Isn't it time you got yourself back into the
driving seat and stated taking control
again. You can't let something so unimportant as
Tinnitus control your life. This defies all
logic! I did the same and managed to change my
lifestyle completely. I stopped smoking I lost
50 pounds in weight. I started to do work outs
and go jogging I stopped worrying about Tinnitus
In factI stopped worrying about things I
couldn't change I wrote an e book and created a
website devoted to living with Tinnitus. All
these things I did myself. No help from anyone .I
used Tinnitus as a base of energy and
manipulated it to meet my own needs. You know
what? I still have the choir in my ears and it is
still loud at time, but here again so is life.
The only difference now is that I am the
preacher and I am in control. Happy preaching!
