Tinnitus

Tinnitus is the perception of sound within the human ear in the absence of corresponding external sound. Tinnitus can be perceived in one or both ears or in the head. It is usually described as a ringing noise, but in some patients it takes the form of buzzing, humming, or whistling sound, or as clicking, roaring, “crickets” and tunes. Tinnitus is not a disease but a symptom resulting from a range of underlying causes. Still, tinnitus is happening in our brain and being a progressive condition is affecting brain functions more and more while making the life of the patient very difficult and a constant never ending struggle.

For years, people who experienced chronic and/or severe tinnitus or hyperacusis have tried everything from acupuncture to drug therapy to try to stop the persistent noises they hear. But also for many years successful TRT treatments let you relieve these severe symptoms completely and reclaim your life.

Standard tinnitus treatment combination ear level instruments usage protocol and adjustment rationale.

In order to allow our brain to recondition tinnitus and label tinnitus process as not important or not significant enough – we need just a bit of the tinnitus presence above the level of stimulation (noise) generated by the ear level instruments. In case where tinnitus is just too low even for the lowest level of stimulation, please follow the set of instructions you were provided with as your individual treatment protocol may require very specific ear level instruments settings. Please avoid masking as this may increase tinnitus intensity. Strength of tinnitus signal depends on its difference from a background.

A year ago today...

I had no idea what my life would look like one year later. A year ago today I was lost and confused, sad and mad and I felt alone as no one could understand what it was that I was “going through”.. I had almost lost my sense of hope and faith that I could ever be helped as the medical community had no answers for me but rather pills that can “ease my nerves”.  A year ago I had to come to terms with the fact that I may never be the “same girl” I was before. A year ago today I learned what it felt like to lose simple things such as the ability to be around people and their voices... click to read more
