Turn down ringing ears

Are you frustrated by tinnitus? If so, the good news is that real relief is available through a combined treatment approach.

It is estimated that 10-15% of the population experience tinnitus - a ringing, roaring, whooshing or chirping sound in the ears. However, while there is no cure, scientific research has proven that real tinnitus relief is possible.

The key? Treating the most common underlying cause – hearing loss, which 80% of people with tinnitus have to some degree – alongside one-on-one coaching to help you better understand and cope with the noise in your head.

Understanding Tinnitus

Tinnitus is increasingly common in our society. It can be an occasional annoyance for some but a constant frustration for others. Although each person experiences and reacts to it individually, the underlying causes and links to hearing loss are common to the majority of people.

The key to effective tinnitus management

Tinnitus is a very personal condition.

The key to its effective management is to work with a hearing care professional to develop an individualized treatment plan. This may include the use of hearing aid technology along with expert guidance to help you better understand and cope with the noise in your head.

The eventual goal is that you are able to enjoy life again without the annoyance of “ringing ears”.

Essential Advice

Combining this hearing lift with coaching from a qualified hearing expert can then bring even more benefits.

“A hearing aid will do its job in managing someone’s hearing loss,” says tinnitus expert Chris DePlacido of Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh, “but unless the patient understands what’s happening with their tinnitus, the effects won’t be the same. Coaching is about teaching patients skills like relaxation techniques that they can use to break the cycle - helping them reduce negative thoughts and lessening their anxiety.”
