What is tinnitus?
The term tinnitus means the presence of a continuous sound in the ear which more frequently can have the characteristic of a rustle, whistle, hiss. Knowing what type of tinnitus you have is important in determining which professional to consult.
Acute tinnitus: Sudden onset of ringing in the ears, without explanation, and lasting less than three months. Any sudden changes in hearing or in the ear should prompt you to see an otolaryngologist (ENT). This includes acute tinnitus and any noticeable changes in hearing or perceiving the sounds of the world around you. Many diseases are completely treatable, but you need to do it soon.
Chronic Tinnitus: Constant ringing in the ears, which has lasted for more than three months. It is strongly recommended that you consult a hearing care professional trained and experienced in treating patients with tinnitus. These professionals are knowledgeable about the different tinnitus treatment options and will discuss your needs and possible solutions in depth with you.
Tinnitus is generally so annoying that it can affect the life of the person who suffers from it, for example hearing them during the day may not be a problem at all, but hearing them at night means that the person in question is unable to rest, to the detriment of the recharge energy of rest, with consequent irritations, nervousness, tension, anxiety.
The most severe form of tinnitus is accompanied by vertigo, in which case it is called Ménière’s syndrome. At the sound level, tinnitus ranges from 4,000 to 20,000 Hertz, clearly it can be assumed that, based on the intensity, there may be differentiated disturbances. Statistical studies have shown that more than 10-14% of the world population suffers or has suffered from it. Furthermore, there is a higher prevalence of people over 65 and of men.

Sound therapy and Tinnitus
The sound has a very high healing power, as it was already known in the ancient civilizations of the whole world, instead< /span >a The physics teaches us that sound propagates faster in water than in air and therefore the human body, being composed of about 70% water, proves to be an excellent conductor of sound. Furthermore, the human body, like the entire universe, naturally vibrates at specific frequencies; the disease manifests itself when the balance and the vibrational harmony between its parts are lost: body, mind and spirit.

Any sound or noise is perceived by us in a vibrational movement, since our body and mind react differently to noise, take for example the annoyance we feel with the incessant noise of a jackhammer compared to that of a roaring water from a stream, music, or a chime, etc., etc. In other words, each of us can confirm that some sounds make us feel better than others and have a positive effect on our nervous and brain systems. Numerous researches support the thesis that when some sounds are personalized, favorable to us and used directly, they can help reduce stress and create a deep sense of well-being by promoting natural self-healing, capable of improving physical energy and health. In our center, using various sound therapy techniques, we have obtained important results on users suffering from TINTIN AND RABBITS IN THE EARS, concretely assisting in the reduction or in many cases in the resolution of the disorder.
By presenting additional sounds for your ears to focus on, your tinnitus becomes less noticeable. The purpose of this type of tinnitus management is to help you feel less about it, so you can get relief.
One of the initial goals is to teach your brain to reclassify tinnitus noise as an unimportant sound that blends into the background. A visual analogy helps explain how sound therapy works: Tinnitus is represented by the brightness of the stars in the night sky. The contrast between a bright star and its background in a dark environment highlights the star and makes it difficult to ignore. The star itself in daylight blends into the illuminated background, and even if it’s still there, it’s harder to spot.

Sound therapy techniques as an effective remedy against tinnitus
In recent years, many European countries have been experimenting with various sound therapy techniques combined with holistic practices such as mindfulness meditation, counseling and pranotherapy to cure or reduce the effects of tinnitus. According to holistic medicine this disturbance has to do with the pressure balance of the middle and inner ear, with the microcirculation, furthermore for psychosomatics, “one wonders if we are not putting too much a lot of pressure on ourselves to meet goals or deadlines”.
mindfulness meditation, for example, is the practice of nonjudgmentally paying attention to one’s experience in the present moment, unconditionally accepting it for what it is.
This constantly practiced technique trains our mind to no longer attach or oppose external thoughts, emotions, sensations and stimuli, but to observe them as an impartial witness, therefore not to identify with them but to grasp their transience. This can significantly alleviate the effect of stress and also help us reduce a condition such as tinnitus.
There are also some techniques of sound therapy which constitute an effective remedy against tinnitus because < / b>Listening can relieve the discomfort of the continuous “whistling” in the ear, causing the brain to ignore it, assimilating it to the tones it registers.
Binaural Beats: represent the difference in frequency between the left and right ears. For the brain to detect it, the binaural beat should be at frequencies below 1000Hz. For example, if the left ear registers a 200Hz tone and the right ear registers a 210Hz tone, the binaural beat heard by the brain is the difference between the two frequencies – 10Hz.
Isochronous Tones: An isochronous tone is a tone that is turned on and off at the desired frequency. They create crisp and distinctive sound pulses. By transmitting isochronic tones through headphones or speakers in the frequency range between approximately 0.5 and 25 Hertz, a resonance effect can be created and the frequency of the dominant brain waves can be changed up or down, helping to achieve the desired brain state.
Active listening exercises daily, specially prepared according to the frequency of tinnitus, lasting 15 minutes each. This conditioned listening exercise with positive “reinforcement” aims to accelerate the time needed to realize the plastic rearrangements that take place within the CNS. The active listening exercise consists in making the user listen to an audio recording, who must recognize the number of intensity increments (+2 dB for the duration of 2 seconds) or pauses (lasting 2 seconds) placed inside the within the sound stimulus. The number of increments and pauses varies for each individual exercise, so that the patient is truly “active” listening.
Sound melodies with a relaxing value, also created according to the frequency of tinnitus and with variable duration. These melodies are mostly made up of sounds of nature or fractal sounds (these are non-repetitive stimuli randomly generated by a specific algorithm) and their function is to determine a state of relaxation in the patient capable of deconditioning from tinnitus;
Humming: A very simple vocal technique to reduce tinnitus and stresses.
In practice, a sound is produced with closed lips which internally transmits harmonic vibrations capable of relaxing the diaphragm and easing tensions. And also, as demonstrated by the pathologist Karel Jindrak, the vibrations of the buzz reach the brain, exert a sort of massage that helps to eliminate metabolic waste, accelerating the metabolism, creating the homeostasis in the body.
