Here is the latest tinnitus research from around the world when it comes to tinnitus treatment and tinnitus remedies:
- A new telephone-based tinnitus management program was launched and shows very promising results. A pilot study that includes a comprehensive management plan for tinnitus has revealed that participants of the study benefit from a progressive tinnitus management program. This also includes the use of cognitive behavioral therapy or CBT. James Henry, Ph.D., ATA Scientific Advisory Committee member and his colleagues has studied the effectiveness of a Progressive Tinnitus Management program that uses CBT and counseling through a telephone-based system. Their studies show that participants showed better response to a telephone-based system rather than face to face interactions.
- A newly developed combination therapy is being tested at the University of Auckland. Researchers from the Centre for Brain Research at the University of Auckland are busy developing a combination of visual and touch feedback to help participants of the study ignore tinnitus. Their goal is to “provide the means for the auditory system to ignore tinnitus.” Lead researcher Grant Searchfield, Ph.D. Head of Audiology also explains that when people are used to hearing tinnitus sounds they prefer to hear it to other auditory stimulus. Hence their study helps people focus their attention to other things to reduce the intensity of tinnitus.
A recent tinnitus research study is preventing noise-induced loss of hearing in soldiers.
- It has been studied that taking antioxidants and dietary supplements can help prevent tinnitus and hearing loss in soldiers. It was also included in the study that brain imaging can be a new diagnostic tool to help detect, treat and prevent noise-induced loss of hearing in US soldiers. This study was conducted at the Henry Ford Hospital.
- 1-minute tinnitus therapy may help. The students of Ursuline College Sligo have a Young Scientist project with a group of young extraordinary students able to develop a one-minute web-based therapy to clear the ears of tinnitus. This is a clinical trial through their website with the results to be posted in December. This clinical trial is their step to get FDA approval and the students are very confident that there is no equivalent to the effectiveness of their product.
Pink Noise for tinnitus?
- A latest tinnitus research at China’s Peking University has showed the positive effect of pink noise on sleep and tinnitus. Pink noise is described as a type of sound where every octave carries the same power or in other words a consistent frequency. Jue Zhang, Ph.D. describes pink noise as rain falling on the pavement or the soft rustling of leaves on trees on a windy day.
The cellular mechanisms of tinnitus seen.
- A study at the University of Leicester’s Department of Cell Physiology and Pharmacology has identified a cellular mechanism that can be the factor in the development of ringing in the ears after exposure to very loud noises. Knowing the cellular mechanism of tinnitus could lead to the development of new treatments and new drugs to prevent this condition.
Natural Tinnitus Remedies
- While natural remedies are outside of the realm of medical science, they have proven to be a side effect free remedy for many ailments. Tinnitus is no different; the most effective natural tinnitus remedy to date (based on the number of people who have used it and saw positive results) is Tinnitus Miracle.
