You may have just discovered you have tinnitus, or you may have had tinnitus for a while and been told "there is nothing that can be done, you will just have to live with it." It makes us mad when we hear that, because it is not true! You can take part in our 12 week Tinnitus Transformation program with online advice, information and treatment broken down into 5 simple steps.
Let us be up front, there is no magic cure for tinnitus, although more and more research is being done that may lead to a "cure" and this content site will keep you informed of what research is taking place worldwide.
However, based on over 15 years of clinical experience we know that over 80% of people with tinnitus can receive help and treatment that will significantly improve their tinnitus and change their life!
Also, it is important to understand that in some cases, tinnitus is caused by an underlying medical condition, or injury and treatment of that underlying cause can lead to the elimination of tinnitus.
We will first list the 5 steps and then expand on each step on a separate page.
To be part of the 12 week tinnitus transformation, we do need to understand you and your tinnitus, so we can tailor the information and treatment to suit your symptoms, the original cause (if known) and what triggers or makes your tinnitus worse. So if you have not already done the online tinnitus quiz, please complete the short quiz now,.
