Tinnitus Advice from a non-Guru

Why not all Guru help with your Tinnitus -
And what you can do instead

What do you do when you suffer from Tinnitus? Sure, you open your browser and google: Tinnitus help, or Tinnitus remedies. Most of the time, when you scroll through the results, especially on YouTube, you will find many people promising a treatment method or a magic pill to cure or relieve the Tinnitus. (I have tried the famous  reddit Tinnitus cure myself and it lowers my T for about 30secs. before back to normal).

In my ten years of suffering from Tinnitus, I have tried a lot: Fasting programs, strenouus exercising, gingko giloba pills, Vitamin D pills, many more pills ;D Sound Notch therapies,  Yoga, Meditation, etc.

You name it and find it on the first pages of google or YouTube, I have tried it. And has it helped?: NO, unfortunately not. But I am much better than at any other time now. How come you might ask? 

Well, because I think overall it’s not about the one cure that’s supposed to help for millions of different cases of Tinnitus, but about how you approach suffering from the condition. Tinnitus is a very individual condition, and there can be no single cure for all of us.

There are things we can control however. In my opinion, the challenge of living with Tinnitus is all about the mental hygiene you practice. If you can control the way you respond to your Tinnitus, you have half your rent. So why is the mental hygiene so important? Well, the biggest problem we have when it comes to Tinnitus is not the Tinnitus itself, as in almost 99% of all cases of Tinnitus, it’s not dangerous. (Disclaimer: Please visit a GP and make sure that your Tinnitus is not caused by an underlying condition).

Here is a video from my YouTube channel, where I explain why I believe that your mindset is so important.

So, if you are like me and you have tried so many different things, but non of them have helped you with your Tinnitus, chances are that in focusing desperately on trying to get rid of the sound and resolve your struggle, you might be wasting valuable time you could invest in actually getting better.

Actually getting better huh? Is probably what you think right now while you try not to leave me a comment on YouTube or other social media. Trust me I don’t blame you. I know how hard it is to negotiate living with Tinnitus and trying to get by. I have been getting comments myself that I supposedly had no idea what it is like to live with Tinnitus and that I should not take advantage of people who are actually suffering, I just wonder why people would not even make an effort to find out something about me. 

Anyways, I believe, as I am a living example that you can get help with Tinnitus. Maybe it’s not some magical cure, but rather a set of tools that you can use in order to live a positive and happy life in spite of the ringing, humming, hissing or whatever your Tinnitus is to you. This toolset can be so potent that it allows you to tune out your Tinnitus completely and that you step by step learn how to live with your Tinnitus.

And of course I am happy to share this toolset with you. I want you to get better. As many people as possible actually. Having experimented with Apps, medication, psychology and many more, have developed a whole garage of toolsets that can be tailored individually to you. In my coaching sessions, we mostly evaluate what are the biggest obstacles and challenges you face individually with your life with Tinnitus. Then step by step, as taking baby steps one-by-one is part of the process as a whole, we develop your toolbox that help you to live your best life despite Tinnitus.
