Nutrient for Tinnitus Treatment
If you’re suffering from tinnitus, I’m pretty sure doctors and ENT specialists have told you something like: “I’m afraid you’re just going to have to live with it” or “It’s just age-related hearing loss.” What is tinnitus? Tinnitus, the constant ringing, thundering, whooshing or whistling in the ears, is aggravating and nerve-racking. It robs you of sleep. It shatters your focus and concentration. And it drowns out your hearing, because of all the background noise in your head. Tinnitus is not a disease, but rather a symptom of some other underlying health condition. Ma...

The Zen of Tinnitus Acceptance
In the 1980s I absolutely loved punk rock. I lived in Greensboro, N.C. and struggling punker bands traveling from Atlanta to D.C. for weekend gigs would unload their equipment-filled vans into tiny bars for mid-week performances to pay for gas money for the trip. I would move toward the stage to listen to the raging of tatted, bare-chested men, roaring like aircraft engines, their words almost impossible to decipher. You didn't need to. You didn't listen to this music. You felt it. Now in my late '60s guess what I get? Can you say "tinnitus"? When it first showed up a decade or so ago I began wearing earplugs, closing d...

And give you the worst headache known to man. The lack of sound seems almost a relief in retrospect. Thus far, I have ex...
