A tinnitus treatment option called Spectral Tinnitus Relief Therapy has been developed by a team of researchers at the University of Leicester in Great Britain.  This new tinnitus treatment option uses tinted light to treat the symptoms of tinnitus or ringing ears.  There is a competition in Great Britain that is known as the Great Britain Challenge, and the challenge is used to find pre-market products and inventions that display innovation while developed in Great Britain.  This tinnitus treatment concept has been chosen to be displayed for six weeks as part of the Great Britain Challenge, and visitors will vote for their favorite exhibit.

Unfortunately, we do not have a lot more information on spectral tinnitus relief therapy, so all we can do at this point is make you aware that it is being developed as a viable treatment option for ringing in the ears.  In addition, we can tell you that it used spectral or tinted lights as part of the treatment plan.  Beyond these facts, we just can’t tell you anything further.  What we will do is continue to monitor this possible new option that could be used to cure tinnitus in the near future.

Here is what we found in regards to spectral tinnitus relief therapy as it was posted at www.thisisleicestershire.co.uk.

An invention developed in Leicester to help treat people with tinnitus has gone on display at an exhibition in London.

The idea for Spectral Tinnitus Relief Therapy has been chosen as a finalist in the Make it in Great Britain Challenge, a competition to find the most innovative pre-market products, processes and concepts being developed in the UK.

The treatment, developed by a team from the University of Leicester, University Hospitals Leicester NHS Trust and Orthoscopics, uses exposure to tinted light to treat tinnitus – a condition which causes the perception of ringing or buzzing in the ear.  You can find the rest of the original article here.

We will continue to monitor this along with any other tinnitus treatment options and report more when we have additional results or new information.  We even attempted to find some videos that might discuss Spectral Tinnitus Relief Therapy a bit further, but to no avail.  The researchers are being mum on any real details of this treatment option at this point, but that’s not uncommon for new research options when it comes to any type of medical related treatment, so this is not surprising.

You can find quite a bit of the most recent and up to date information on our website in regards to anything tinnitus related, so if you are interested in tinnitus or would like to find some legitimate tinnitus treatment recommendations, then we encourage you to spend some time reading here.  While there is no sure thing when it comes to tinnitus treatment or a tinnitus cure, there is often help that many people are completely unaware about.  That’s why we created this website and that’s why we try to continually update it and add all of the latest tinnitus information.

It’s not just us normal every day people that suffer from tinnitus symptoms.  This post is going to introduce you to Gaby Roslin.  We hope you an relate as this famous TV personality talks about her bout with tinnitus symptoms.  While the reasons we suffer from tinnitus may vary from person to person, the results are usually the same, and that’s the fact that we all usually suffer from that incessant ringing in the ears that is the most common tinnitus symptom.  In Gabby’s case, her tinnitus was brought on by a severe ear infection that caused her ear drum to burst.  While she doesn’t say she has recovered fully, she does indicate that her tinnitus has subsided with time.

Gabby Roslin Suffered From Tinnitus

We couldn’t help but notice the fact that Gabby believes in holistic health treatments, so we wouldn’t be surprised at all to find out that her natural healing lifestyle has helped her tinnitus symptoms, although we want to be clear and say that she never indicates that to be the case.  She does talk about the fact that she believes in natural or holistic healing options for her health though, and we know that a natural or holistic approach is the one area where many people are able to cure tinnitus or at least improve their tinnitus symptoms.  It is very likely that Gabby’s holistic lifestyle choices have helped her with her tinnitus improvements.

Here is an excerpt from an article that we found at www.dailyrecord.co.uk where Gabby Roslin talks about her ear problems and the subsequent bout of tinnitus that she dealt with as a result.

Broadcaster Gaby Roslin has told how she was left in agony when her eardrum burst following an infection, leading to temporary tinnitus and impaired hearing.

Now the 48-year-old mum to daughters Libbi-Jack, 11, and Amelie, five, follows a healthy routine so she and her family avoid similar ear problems.

Gaby said: “I’ve been wearing great big cans – earphones – for almost all of my 25-year broadcasting career, but before my right eardrum burst three years ago I’d never had hearing problems.

“In December 2009, I caught a really heavy, chesty cough that developed into a nasty ear infection.

“Despite blowing my nose furiously and attempting to clear the blocked sinuses and catarrh, I couldn’t shake it.

“My ear got more and more painful until one Thursday morning I woke up in agony and there was this fluid and blood and yuk stuck to my face and on the pillow. I was screaming in pain. It was like the worst toothache you can imagine, with earache on top.

“I had no idea what was wrong. The pain was so intense, but all I could see was this horrible gunge.

“It must have looked like a horror film. I woke up my fiancé, David, shouting, ‘Look at this blood’, and then the penny dropped. I must have burst my eardrum.

I called my GP who confirmed that was what had happened. The pressure of a big build-up of mucus from the infection had forced the skin of the ear drum to burst.

“You’d think releasing the pressure on the eardrum when it bursts would relieve the pain, but it doesn’t.  You can read the rest of the original article here.

Tinnitus certainly does not discriminate, and in fact, there are many other famous personalities that suffer from ringing ears as well.  Musicians tend to be one of the highest groups in which tinnitus strikes due to the long time abuse their ears receive in the form of loud music.  Because of this fact, many famous musicians claim to suffer from tinnitus or ringing ears.  Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, Phil Collins and Pete Townshend all claim to suffer from tinnitus, and all have exposed their hearing to loud music for multiple years.

The real problem with tinnitus is that there are no warning signs and it doesn’t come on subtly in most cases.  It just appears and you then have it and in most case, you can’t get anyone to help you make it go away.  Because of this fact, most people don’t or won’t believe it can happen to them.  It just suddenly strikes one day and then it’s too late.  The lessons are hard learned, but if you don’t have tinnitus, then protect your ears and don’t expose them to loud sounds for extended periods of time.  If you have a suspected cold or blockage in your ear canal, then see a doctor immediately so as not to have a problem such as the one Gabby experienced.

If you already suffer from tinnitus or ringing ears, then it’s important that you understand that there may not be anything that will help you.  On the other hand, even if you have been told that there is no tinnitus cure, it doesn’t mean that you can not get help.  Spend some time on our site reading our information and suggestions, as there is help for many, even if not for everyone.  We wanted you to read about how this famous TV personality talks about her bout with tinnitus in an effort to educate you about tinnitus if you don’t have it, but also to help those that do have it to understand that they are not alone and that there is often help if they know where to look.

A PHD candidate has received a $10,000 grant and department of defense backing for tinnitus research.  There is probably more research being done on tinnitus at this time than all of the combined research that has been done in the past.  While this doesn’t provide us with a sure tinnitus cure at this point, it is at least a start in the right direction.  If you suffer from tinnitus or ringing in the ears, then you know how important it is that we find a complete cure for this debilitating and often life altering condition that we call tinnitus.

Even though no one has been able to cure tinnitus completely at this point, there are treatment options that can greatly improve your quality of life, so if tinnitus has interrupted your life and if you are suffering are experiencing a decrease in your quality of life as a result, then you have come to the right place.  We are constantly updating our site with the latest tinnitus news and treatment options.  While you may not be able to improve your conditions, we feel certain that you can improve your quality of life with the information that we have gathered here at the My Cure Tinnitus website.

We found an article that discusses the recent grant that Sarah Hayes has acquired, along with some additional information regarding the department of defense backing she is receiving as well.  Here is a small excerpt from the article that was located at www.medicine.buffalo.edu and it discusses this latest research grant.

A PhD candidate in neuroscience has received a $10,000 grant from the American Tinnitus Association to research the condition characterized by ringing or buzzing in the ears.

Sarah Hayes will use the award to investigate the causes of tinnitus, focusing on the 1 percent of people with the condition who hear these phantom sounds regularly at debilitating levels.

Defense Department Also Supporting Hayes’ Work

The U.S. government is so concerned with tinnitus that it is also backing Hayes’ research.

The Department of Defense granted the third-year PhD candidate a National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate Fellowship, which covers her tuition and provides an annual stipend.

A large number of military personnel suffer from tinnitus—which been linked to noise-induced hearing loss—due to their exposure to blasts and explosions.

Pioneering UB Researcher Introduced Her to Field

Hayes became interested in tinnitus while working in the lab of Richard Salvi, PhD, SUNY Distinguished Professor of Communicative Disorders and Sciences and a member of the international Tinnitus Research Initiative.

“I wanted to do research that is clinically relevant—research with the goal of helping people suffering from a disorder or helping to find cures for different neurological disorders,” she says.  You can read the rest of the original article here.

One of the highest rates of tinnitus is found in military personnel, particularly those that are returning from war time conditions where they are exposed to loud explosions and other war time noises on a regular basis.  The second highest rate of tinnitus is found in musicians, but tinnitus is a growing problem for people of all walks of life, including myself, thus my interest in finding a tinnitus cure.  We are simply excited to report that there is a large amount of research going on at present in the area of tinnitus, so don’t lose hope if you have tinnitus.

We hope that the news of a $10,000 grant and department of defense backing for tinnitus research is as exciting to you as it is to us, and with more research starting up on an almost weekly basis as of late, we feel that a more permanent treatment option is just around the corner.  In the interim, if you are suffering from a decreased quality of life at the expense of tinnitus symptoms, we encourage you to explore our website further, as we have quite a few options that many people are using to help with their tinnitus symptoms, thus improving their overall quality of life.

Tinnitus Research Options

Tinnitus Research Options

Most doctors will tell you that there is no cure for tinnitus.  In fact, most medical doctors will tell you that there is nothing that you can do to help reduce the ringing in your ears that is caused by tinnitus.  However, we are here to tell you that in may cases, you can get help, so get this highly respected doctor’s opinion on how to cure tinnitus, as maybe some of his suggestions might help you!  It’s very true that there is no universal cure for tinnitus, and it’s also true that some people have a form of tinnitus that will not respond to any type of tinnitus treatment options, but that doesn’t mean you can not get help with your tinnitus or ringing ears.

Doctors Opinion On Tinnitus Cure

Doctors Opinion On Tinnitus Cure

Our site is full of information on what tinnitus is, the different types of tinnitus and best of all, we have all of the latest information on how to treat tinnitus or reduce that awful ringing in the ears that comes with most tinnitus cases.  Anything we suggest on our site either comes highly recommended or we have even used it personally with positive results.  If something doesn’t work, we tell you like it is, but unfortunately, most of the options we discuss are hit and miss for different patients, so there is hardly ever a one size fits all remedy to help those that suffer with tinnitus to find a tinnitus cure.  The most important thing we want you to understand is that while there are no guarantees, that does not mean that you can not improve your quality of life and possibly even stop your tinnitus symptoms altogether.

Here is short excerpt as to what Dr. Paul Donohue had to say about a tinnitus cure at www.health.heraldtribune.com.

Your doctor is right in saying that there is no universal cure for tinnitus (TIN-uh-tiss or tin-NITE-iss; you pick the pronunciation you like), but there are remedies that make the noise less of a nuisance.

People describe tinnitus as whistling, buzzing, chirping, hissing or pulsating constant noise whose intensity varies but never completely leaves. It’s tough to deal with, but something can be done for almost all those plagued by it.

Tinnitus often appears when hearing starts to wane. People with normal hearing, when put into a soundproof room will, in a short time, start hearing ear noises. The reason is that the background noise of daily life has been eliminated. Background noise suppresses ear-generated noise. When hearing becomes impaired even slightly, the background noise is eliminated, and people develop tinnitus. A hearing aid restores normal hearing and eliminates tinnitus for many.

If a hearing aid isn’t the answer, masking devices can dampen tinnitus. They’re worn like hearing aids, and they emit a constant sound that blunts tinnitus. At night, when tinnitus always gets louder, turning on a bedside radio to soothing music quiets tinnitus. If that doesn’t work, turn the dial to a position where static comes from the radio. That often makes tinnitus bearable.  You can read the entire original article here.

Understand that Dr. Donohue is a highly respected and board certified doctor with some very impressive credentials.  While he readily admits that there is no universal cure for tinnitus, he goes on to clearly state that you can indeed find relief from the ringing in the ears and often times get complete remission.  So, if your doctor or your own research has lead you to believe that there is nothing that can be done for you, then you should now understand that this might not necessarily be true.  Yes, you could be one of the tinnitus patients in which your tinnitus will not respond to any type of treatment, but in most cases, these people make up a small percentage of those diagnosed with tinnitus.

Tinnitus will respond to your environment or lifestyle, your diet and many other outside variables that you can easily change, so there is hope for everyone to find help until it is proven that your tinnitus will not respond to available tinnitus treatment options.  If ringing ears and other tinnitus problems are reducing the quality of your life, then be sure to spend some time on our website and explore all of the options and information that we have available.

We are constantly updating our website on an almost daily basis, and we are continually scouring the Internet and medical world for the latest and newest tinnitus treatment options, so book our website and come back often.  If you have never tried to use holistic options to treat your tinnitus, then we suggest you read this tinnitus treatment information, as it has helped many tinnitus users.  Remember to read all of the noted article so that you can get this highly respected doctor’s opinion on how to cure tinnitus.  We think you will be pleasantly surprised in many cases.

We talked about how Cognitive Behavioral Therapy was very helpful to many tinnitus sufferers in one of our previous articles, and one of the suggestions that was made in that article was to see if you could find a tinnitus support group in your area.  Since that article, we have done more research on tinnitus support groups, so we wanted to post this article on why finding a support group can help you to cope with tinnitus symptoms.  Research shows that sharing your issues with others alone can help, but by joining a support group you can often learn more about yourself, but you can certainly learn more about how others are learning to cope with their tinnitus symptoms.

Tinnitus Support Group

Tinnitus Support Group

Here is what Sarah Pusateri had to say about tinnitus support groups in a recent article at wusfnews.wusf.usf.edu.

Sal Gentile says sometimes his tinnitus sounds like bacon frying in a skillet.

Other times it’s hissing – like air out of a popped tire. Or it can sound like conveyor belts, or rough ocean waves.

On his worst days, Gentile says, it’s a combination of these things – a cacophony of sounds within his head.

“I was scared. I was devastated. I had no idea what was going on,” he says.

Tinnitus is the phantom perception of a sound that does not exist in the outside world.

Gentile was out for his birthday at a noisy restaurant more than one year ago, when he says he first started hearing strange noises.

“When I came home, I had all these sounds coming out of my ear,” he says.

He soon learned his condition wasn’t uncommon. Experts say 15 percent of the population has some sort of tinnitus.

That’s 60 million people in the U.S. alone, according to Dr. K. Paul Boyev, associate professor at the Department of Otolaryngology at the University of South Florida.

He says there are two types of tinnitus, with different causes.

“It can be sounds that are created by vascular structures such as blood moving through blood vessels,” he says.

“Then there are sounds that originate usually in your nervous system, usually in your auditory pathways that process sound.”

Gentile suffers from the latter. He thinks his tinnitus was most likely caused by hearing loss.  You can read the rest of the original article here.

Most people hear from their doctor or through research that there is no cure for tinnitus, and they immediately shut down and give up, rather than work through their tinnitus symptoms.  Believe it or not, many tinnitus sufferers are able to learn to heal themselves and thus their tinnitus.  This does not necessarily mean that their tinnitus is not there any longer either, it simply means that through learning to cope with it, that they can learn to block it out and not allow it to affect their life any longer.

Tinnitus is really an underlying symptom of some other problem in your body, and if your tinnitus is caused by something other than hearing damage, which many times is the case, then you can often reduce the severity of your symptoms.  Stress and diet can play a major part, so learning to reduce the stress in your life and changing your diet can often lead to remarkable improvements, so don’t give up.  Do some research and see if you can find a tinnitus support group in your area.  You might be surprised at how much it helps.  In the end, you too might discover why finding a support group can help you cope with tinnitus symptoms!
