Genuine help for the tinnitus sufferer.



"Sorry, you'll just have to live with the noise."

Many tinnitus sufferers have been told by their doctors: "Sorry, you'll just have to live with the noise," or, "There's nothing we can do for the ringing in your ears," or "It's just one of those things that happens. I'll give you a prescription for a tranquilizer until you get used to it."



Such statements are neither accurate or helpful.  Any doctor, audiologist, or other health-care professional who makes such statements is simply unaware of what's available today. A great deal can be done to relieve your suffering, and it's my intention  for you to become aware of your options. You have many! So relax, my new friend. Help has arrived. As you will soon discover, I have extensive training, knowledge, and first-hand experience with tinnitus and hyperacusis.


I know exactly what I'm talking and writing about.

You soon will too.


My purpose with this blog is to provide genuinely useful information to anyone who suffers from either of these frustrating  conditions. The section called "Blog Posts" contains individual articles and suggestions which cover many aspects of tinnitus. This  includes  causes, effects, and documented solutions. Because of their frequent association, hyperacusis is discussed in conjunction with tinnitus, as well as on its own.

I invite questions and comments, including your personal experiences with tinnitus and/or hyperacusis.

There are many causes of tinnitus. There are many tinnitus treatments. I must caution you that tinnitus treatments are often unavailable or unreliable. Ringing in the ears is very distressing for millions of tinnitus sufferers. The same is true for victims of hyperacusis, or sensitive ears. You will find reliable information on this blog site, to help you understand tinnitus causes and tinnitus treatment.

Spam advertising is not permitted on this blog or within the "comments" section. This includes  attempted promotion of undocumented remedies or so-called "miracle" cures.
