When silencing phantom noises is a matter of science

Discovered by Professor Cederroth and his team at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden, this is a first step to identify the molecules that could be targeted in treatments to silence the phantom noises, and help thousands of people.

What Are Complications of Cerumen?
Discussion Cerumen or ear wax is produced in the outer third of the external auditory canal. It contains exfoliated squamous epithelium along with waxy substances. It is controlled by autosomal alleles and has two main phenotypes – “wet” cerumen which is dominant and common in Caucasian and African populations, and “dry” cerumen which is recessive and found more often in Asian populations. Cerumen protects the external canal and has some antibacterial and antifungal properties including against strains of Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeroginosis, and Candida albicans.

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, cl...

What Is That Noise!?! My Take On Living With Tinnitus
Do you hear that? I often ask my family that question. Sometimes I can't tell if the noise I am hearing is my tinnitus or if the sound is actually there. Usually, it is all in my head. Typically, I know this, to be honest, but I ask anyway, just in case. I have a 40-50% hearing loss in both of my ears, but only mild tinnitus. I am grateful for that. Sometimes I feel that the tinnitus is worse than the hearing loss! Unexplained sounds buzzing and whistling in your head can make you question your sanity. And give you the worst headache known to man. The lack of sound seems almost a relief in retrospect. Thus far, I have expe...
