If there is anyone still has this thread turned on after the years absence - have a read of this.

TINNITUS IS FIXABLE, DESPITE CONVENTIONAL MEDICINE NAYSAYERS!

For anyone suffering from Tinnitus, CPS, Miniere's Vertigo, Hearing Imparement, ADHA, Autism, etc, etc then have a lokk at the work and system developed by the French Doctor Tomatis to relieve the hearing problems of the WWII sufferers.

It's known as the "Tomatis Method" system and all sorts of links on the web.

There is a whole other world now around this "Method" connected to all things connected to the 8th nerve - our hearing.

The one that I use to rid myself of the Tinnitus, CPS (Cocktail Party Syndrome - dunno if a technical expression), and apparently just a mild sort of Miniere's Vertigo (a really bad bit o' news!) is a simple extension of the basic method of listening to modified classical music, initially Mozart (hence the Mozart Effect) but now all sorts of music is used, especially for children.

The humble Walkman cassette player was used to feed the ear the Very low level of modded music (can just hear it) and over about 100hrs+, the ears begin to respond.
The system out here is known as the "Sound Therapy International" and uses cassettes (now CDs, i think) and there are also the Tomatis Centres here for those that require full professional help.

Won't go on about it - Look it up and read about it - it works
extremely well.

Did some quick research.
There are some things we can do to ease the effects of tinnitus.

There are also some methods for treatment, that has been tried and have actual effects.

One such method developed and described in a paper is:
Tinnitus Retraining Therapy (TRT)
- En behandlingsmetod för tinnitus
- One treatmentmethod for tinnitus

This PDF Download about TRT is in swedish
and we are severtal that knows this beautiful language.

Yeah, there's a centre in Stockholm called Solgardens Trainingscentre and "www.brainbalance.se" or phone Stockholm 08755 1218 according to the official website

I'll see if I can add some info here for you - It's a lot of other stuff too as "hearing problems" isn't a major focus for them, apparently - it's always been this way - not sure if it's because they all seem to focus on children mostly.

What makes the Oz one a bit different is the cassette approach - the centres use the special headphones that have the bone conduction transducer built in and other stuff - for simple problems like tinnitus and such (yeah, it put me off too!), the use of the modded music works perfectly and only costs the set of cassettes (plus your cassette player) - I've got a tape running now on my Yamaha cassette player next to me.
You need to play it about 3hours/day+, but as it's just audible on the earbuds, or phones, you can do normal daily work.

Can't get the files on here - will send to your address.

Now, Tomatis method is not only used, as I understand it, for this specific problem.
But also can give good things for Tinitus

I check out this centre, too:

Default tomatis

I just spoke to a person from my local Tomatis center and I may give it a try for ADD. ...If I can get over the cost! It sounds very promising.

That ADD is a real pain in the b**!

The cost of the centres is not cheap, as you say - however, for that ADD, the results are excellent.

You will find that the Centre is also very helpful with advice about foods, diet, supplements and a lot of other things.
I think you'll find that the expertise of the centres with something like ADD to be well worth the effort.
Incidently, I use the Herbalife nutritional products for reduction in hayfever, asthma, etc and have found that this also helps a lot with the hearing problems.

The Conventional Medical Professionals aren't very helpful about anything in this area - strange really, as this surely constitutes a health problem.

All the best ...

I have suffered a mild HF tone in my right ear for years , I actually thought it was normal until people replied that they didnt know what I was talking about when I asked "you know that whistle you get in your ears at night ?" !!!

Definitely worse when I'm tired or have been out late. Doesn't bother me that much as I have learned to live with it but I'll check out this therapy.
