Helping Your Tinnitus

5 simple steps for you to take control and change your tinnitus

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!

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 change their life!

Tinnitus treatment approach

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.

  • Without having to become a medical expert help you obtain the most from your consultation with your physician, GP or audiologist. 
  • Give you the knowledge and confidence to be able judge what types of treatment can help you and reduce the risk of wasting time & money on products, or services that have dubious research or clinical credibility.

Actions & Links to more detailed information

If you have not done it already download and read the Free Tinnitus Guide via this link  The key messages to extract from that document are:

    • Tinnitus is experienced by at least 10% of people at some stage. Although if you have subjective tinnitus (the most common type), no one else can hear the sounds you hear, they are "real" and action can be taken to investigate and help you with treatment.
    • There may be an underlying injury, drug reaction or other medical condition that is causing the tinnitus. That is why we always recommend you consult your physician / GP, because if that is the case there may be a clear pathway to eliminating your tinnitus by treating the underlying cause.
    • If there is not an underlying medical condition, you can still take control of managing your tinnitus and the tools & techniques available through this content website will help you through that journey.
