Will Stem Cell Research Lead to a Tinnitus Cure?

Some of the stem cell research that’s taking place now is aimed at finding a tinnitus cure.  There is guarded optimism that this research might actually result in a cure for at least some people suffering from ringing of ears and tinnitus.

Basically the stem cells would be removed from embryos and converted to a different cell form.  These cells would then be used to grow new and hopefully healthy nerves in the ear.

Most scientists working in the hearing field feel that the majority of tinnitus cases are connected to being exposed to noises in the environment or workplace that were damaging over time to the ears.

My Tinnitus Was Caused by the Most Common Reason: Noise!

For me this is true.  Loud music lead me down the road to tinnitus.

People doing stem cell research feel that if they can regrow the hair cells in the inner ear, they would take over where damaged cells are no longer able to function resulting in ringing of ears.  Many types of stem cell testing are being done and finding a tinnitus cure is just one area that’s being looked into.

The problem lies in the fact that if the research shows promise then more testing must be done.  After that if the research shows a real cure is available, then there is normally a waiting period to get government approval, etc.

The cure if it comes would probably take another 10 years before it becomes available to the public.  That’s too long folks if you suffer like I did.  I needed something yesterday or at least now!

Many Remedies That We All Try

There are many remedies that are talked about but they seem to work for some people and not for others.  Then there are drugs and surgery which really haven’t shown much success.

Many of us first notice tinnitus when we’re trying to sleep.  My tinnitus when it began was pretty minor during the day but really starting roaring at night.  The result was little to no sleep.  I used ear plugs and for awhile they actually helped me get to sleep.

My tinnitus progressed as it does for most sufferers and pretty soon nothing seemed to work.  Not getting a good night’s sleep just makes it worse and from there it’s a downward spiral.

Not Cured but Getting There

Let me say that I’m not totally over my ringing of ears but I’m progressing towards a tinnitus cure.  The Tinnitus Remedy program consist of holistic, herbal remedies in a disciplined combination that is breaking my tinnitus down one piece at a time.  I hope you’ll go here to read about what’s given me relief and hope for an eventual cure.

Ringing of Ears and Ipods: On the List for Tinnitus Causes?

I sometimes think back to when my ringing of ears first started and how I was surprised that it didn’t go away as it always had before.  You know, yawn or take a deep breath and maybe wait a minute or two and it’ll be gone.

If you don’t have tinnitus imagine how you’d feel if it didn’t go away, ever, and you’ll have some idea of the anxiety tinnitus  causes.  Most of us who have the big T have tried anything and everything.  Let’s see: drugs, devices that mask sound, diet and exercise.  I even know a lady that was told if she ate half a potato and buried the other half in the ground, that would cure her.   She did it.  I don’t think it worked.

What's the Danger with MP3's?

The word is now out that the generation that has grown up with MP3’s is in real danger of ringing of ears down the road.  MP3's are powerful and many use them almost all of their waking hours.

Back in the day you couldn’t walk around with music constantly blaring from the radio.  It just wasn’t right to do that in public.  Now it’s private and it can be played LOUD!

When I was younger playing in bands and going to ear piercing concerts, I never worried about my hearing.  My parents warned me I’d go deaf.  They never said anything about ear ringing driving you crazy.  I doubt if it mattered because I wouldn’t have listened.  That’s part of being young.

MP3's Can be Used Safely

There are some things that people can do to help MP3’s from becoming one of a long list of tinnitus causes.  Researchers say to give your ears a rest and only listen for no more than an hour a day.

If you listen at a high volume, turn it down.  This can really make a difference.  If you notice that your ears are ringing a little more than normal, try not listening for awhile and see if that helps.

It’s hard to put into words how tinnitus changes and can wreck lives.  I wouldn’t wish it on anybody and especially my children.

I hope that reading articles on this site can make people aware of tinnitus causes.  If you suffer from ringing of ears, I hope you’ll read this page to learn about a program that has helped me live a normal life again.  Check out the Tinnitus Remedy.

Ringing of Ears or Tinnitus- My Story

Have you ever lay down to go to sleep and the neighbor decided to mow his lawn, or maybe fire up a chain saw?  It's not a good thing!  Welcome to the world of Tinnitus or ringing of ears.

The Cause of My Ringing of Ears

I've always loved music and learned to play guitar and bass as a young girl.  I loved rock and roll and especially blues and played in bands starting at a very young age.  Loud was cool and I had no thought for the consequences which is pretty typical for young people.

As the years went by I noticed that often I would hear ringing after finishing a gig but by the next morning it was better and then gone.  Then it didn't go away anymore.  My tinnitus consists of 2 sounds: ringing and a sound I can only describe as what you hear if you put a seashell to your ear.   However the nice sound of waves and wind is much louder than is acceptable.

The Search for Help

I went to the doctor and was prescribed drugs.  These worked for a while but never completely gave me relief.  I knew they weren't the answer and then tried various masking devices.  Some of these also helped but again weren't a cure.

Was there a cure?  I didn't hear anything very positive and slowly became depressed and pretty hopeless.  Nights are the worst time for ringing of the ears because the tinnitus condition is at its worst.  It's really no louder but the quiet of night and the attempt at sleep makes it seem worse and it's more invasive.

I read everything I could about tinnitus and a cure for tinnitus.  Doctors say there is no cure for ringing of ears but I'm here to tell you different.  There IS hope!  I found a plan that works for me and I have a few tips to share with you.

Four Tips

1.  Start working out and taking some long walks.  These activities increase the blood flow to your brain and throughout your entire body.  An increase in blood flow has a positive flow on your entire system and can really help your tinnitus.

2.  Drink plenty of water.  Water cleanses your body and will have a positive impact on any health conditions including noise or ringing of ears.

3.  The only way I could come out of the depression I was experiencing was a total spiritual healing.  I had to see my reality in a completely different way and that meant a change in beliefs.  I had heard of others that had reached a cure for tinnitus and so I began to believe in my heart and soul that I would do it also.  I threw out my old self talk that, "This ringing of the ears can't be cured".

4.  I set a goal that I would do something positive with my life.  I wanted to write and play music again.  I knew that I couldn't play in a band but I could do a solo acoustic act.  I'm still not to the point of making a living from my music but it helped to concentrate on a positive goal instead of ringing of ears.

These tips have nothing to do with drugs, masking or doctors.  However I know that they will help with the level of your tinnitus.  I know because these changes and especially the change of focus helped me and quite quickly.

Is There a Cure for Tinnitus?

Is there a cure for Tinnitus?  I'm not cured yet but I'm so improved that I'm living a better life than I ever have.  I'm healthier, in much better shape and happier than I was before the onset of this condition.

I am using a program that combines many holistic approaches. It seems that the proper combination of many areas such as diet, exercise, meditation and other parts of an overall plan is what really makes this plan effective. I know this program can help you and possibly assist you in total recovery from your tinnitus. Click here for more information on a program I consider a miracle.
