How To Cure Tinnitus In 1 Minute

Tinnitus is usually described as a ringing
in the ears, but it can also sound like clicking, hissing, roaring, or buzzing. Tinnitus involves perceiving sound when no
external noise is present. The sound can be very soft or very loud, and
high-pitched or low-pitched. Some people hear it in one ear and others
hear it in both. People with severe tinnitus may have problems
hearing, working, or sleeping. Tinnitus is not a disease — it’s a symptom. It’s a sign that something is wrong with
your auditory system, which includes your ear, the auditory nerve that connects the
inner ear to the brain, and the parts of the brain that process sound.

There are a variety of different conditions
that can cause tinnitus. One of the most common is noise-induced hearing
loss. In this video we share our top tips to cure
tinnitus. Any extra resources or information will be
included in the description so make sure to check it out. Our first tip is to try to Hearing aids. Most people develop tinnitus as a symptom
of hearing loss. When you lose hearing, your brain undergoes
changes in the way it processes sound frequencies. A hearing aid is a small electronic device
that uses a microphone, amplifier, and speaker to increase the volume of external noises. This can mollify neuroplastic changes in the
brain’s ability to process sound. If you have tinnitus, you may find that the
better you hear, the less you notice your tinnitus. A 2007 survey of healthcare providers published
in The Hearing Review, found that roughly 60 percent of people with tinnitus experienced
at least some relief from a hearing aid.

Roughly 22 percent found significant relief. Our second tip is to try Sound-masking devices. Sound-masking devices provide a pleasant or
benign external noise that partially drowns out the internal sound of tinnitus. The traditional sound-masking device is a
tabletop sound machine, but there are also small electronic devices that fit in the ear. These devices can play white noise, pink noise,
nature noises, music, or other ambient sounds. Most people prefer a level of external sound
that is just slightly louder than their tinnitus, but others prefer a masking sound that completely
drowns out the ringing. Some people use commercial sound machines
designed to help people relax or fall asleep. You can also use headphones, television, music,
or even a fan. A 2017 study in the journal Frontiers in Aging
Neuroscience found that masking was most effective when using broadband noise, such as white
noise or pink noise.

Nature sounds proved much less effective. Our third tip is to try Modified or customized
sound machines. Standard masking devices help to mask the
sound of tinnitus while you are using them, but they have no long-lasting effects. Modern medical-grade devices use customized
sounds tailored specifically to your tinnitus. Unlike regular sound machines, these devices
are only worn intermittently. You may experience benefits long after the
device is turned off, and over time, you may experience long-term improvement in the perceived
loudness of your tinnitus. A 2017 study published in the Annals of Ontology,
Rhinology, and Laryngology, found that customized sound decreases the loudness of tinnitus and
may be superior to broadband noise. Our fourth tip is to try Behavioral therapy. Tinnitus is associated with a high level of
emotional stress. Depression, anxiety, and insomnia are not
uncommon in people with tinnitus. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a type
of talk therapy that helps people with tinnitus learn to live with their condition. Rather than reducing the sound itself, CBT
teaches you how to accept it. The goal is to improve your quality of life
and prevent tinnitus from driving you crazy. CBT involves working with a therapist or counselor,
typically once per week, to identify and change negative thought patterns.

CBT was initially developed as a treatment
for depression and other psychological problems, but it seems to work well for people with
tinnitus. Several studies and meta-reviews, including
one published in the Korean Journal of Audiology, have found that CBT significantly improves
irritation and annoyance that often comes with tinnitus. Our fifth tip is to try Progressive tinnitus
management. Progressive tinnitus management (PTM) is a
therapeutic treatment program offered by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Tinnitus is one of the most common disabilities
seen in veterans of the armed services. The loud noises of war (and training) often
lead to noise-induced hearing loss. If you’re a veteran, talk to your local
VA hospital about their tinnitus treatment programs. You may want to consult the National Center
for Rehabilitative Auditory Research (NCRAR) at the VA. They have a step-by-step tinnitus workbook
and educational materials that may be helpful. Our sixth tip is to try Exercise. Exercise contributes significantly to your
overall well-being. Tinnitus can be aggravated by stress, depression,
anxiety, lack of sleep, and illness. Regular exercise will help you manage stress,
sleep better, and stay healthier.

Our final tip is to try Mindfulness-based
stress reduction. During an eight-week course of mindfulness-based
stress reduction (MBSR), participants develop the skills to control their attention through
mindfulness training. Traditionally, the program was designed to
draw people’s attention away from their chronic pain, but it can be equally effective
for tinnitus. The similarities between chronic pain and
tinnitus have led researchers to develop a mindfulness-based tinnitus stress reduction
(MBTSR) program. The results of a pilot study, which were published
in The Hearing Journal, found that participants of an eight-week MBTSR program experienced
significantly altered perceptions of their tinnitus.

This included a reduction in depression and
anxiety. So that sums up our top tips for curing tinnitus. If you found any of it useful then hit that
