Tinnitus and the Angry Factor

I get a lot of email and posts to my tinnitus blog from people who don’t like my approach to tinnitus healing. They say things like, “tinnitus cannot be controlled by thought,” and “you should be ashamed of yourself for giving hope to people with tinnitus.”

Well, I must tell you that no matter how many complaints I get, I will not stop promoting what I know to be the most effective tinnitus treatment for many people. My approach is based on my own experience and has helped many more people than the ones who are angry and refuse to try it.

But, why do my teachings make people angry? Because when ego gets in the way there’s no way to reach those people. What is your ego? Your ego is your mind and your mind only knows one thing; the past. Therefore the mind searches its database for all past experiences and comes up with a reason why what I teach won’t work.

The problem is, the mind cannot think of an infinite number of ways that healing can happen. It can only think of a very finite number of ways and all of them are based on past experience.

You see, the mind wants to keep you safe. That’s its only job. And, by trying something new, such as my formula for tinnitus healing, that would require stepping outside its comfort zone and that to most people is very scary indeed.

So, when the mind gets scared, it also gets angry. Why? Because it has to prove that it is right. But, here’s my question to you; would you rather be right or would you rather get what you want? Being right, means mind driven reasoning based on the past. But, getting what you want on the other hand, means shutting your mind down and allowing only what you want to flow easily to you.

Fighting, resisting, planning against or even lashing out in anger will only make what you don’t want worse! You must understand this. Therefore, anyone who lashes out at me in anger is only hurting themselves. Why? Because they’re cutting themselves off from the one thing that could truly empower their lives; the positive flow of energy.

The simple act of letting me know that they don’t agree with me means they are cut off from learning and therefore dying emotionally and spiritually little by little. Every act of anger depletes your positive flow of energy and takes away your ability to get what you truly want.

It’s all about energy. And, when you use up what little you have fighting or resisting your present situation you have nothing left over to focus on creating what you truly want in life which is to be free from fear and worry. Tinnitus breeds fear and worry, but only if you allow it.

Simply do not allow this to happen. Do not allow yourself to get sucked into the drama and fear of the rest of the world. Live your life and do not concern yourself with the negative mind driven know-it-all advice from other people.

Here’s a good rule of thumb. Ask yourself this question when someone wants to give you their opinion or advice; “Does this person already have what I want?” If the answer is no, then you must resist the temptation to listen to them, no matter how hard that may be. This includes well meaning friends and family.

Therefore if you hear advice from someone who says, “positive thought and feeling cannot affect tinnitus volume,” ask yourself, “has this person healed their tinnitus?” If the answer is no, then do not under any circumstances listen to them. It’s just their ego talking and it’s saying, “I know best.” But that’s nonsense if they do not have what you want. That’s like taking financial advice from someone who’s broke.

Anyone who lashes out in anger, in an attempt to be right, cannot under any circumstances lead a completely happy and fulfilled life. Only when they wake up and realize that their resistance to what is, is keeping them stuck where they are. And, only then can they begin to heal the parts of themselves that is keeping them from getting what they truly want.

  1. Alternative treatments for tinnitus

    Conventional wisdom says that there is no cure for tinnitus. There are many other alternative tinnitus treatment methods that have been tried with regard to finding some relief for this debilitating condition known as tinnitus which affects about 50 million people in the US alone.

    There are many alternative treatments for tinnitus options available to the tinnitus sufferer today:

    1. Acupressure: This was originated by the Chinese using this pressure on certain points of the body is thought to help decreasing the level of tinnitus.

    2. The Alexander Technique (This is not really an alternative treatment for tinnitus): Here the tinnitus patient is taught posture and other techniques aimed at improving blood flow to the ears which is thought to relieve the symptoms of tinnitus.

    3. Aromatherapy: Today aromatherapy treats patients as it is believed to help in reducing the tinnitus.

    4. Biofeedback: Biofeedback is a method where people are taught to improve their health by using communications from their own bodies.

    5. Deep Breathing: This is helpful in relaxation and in minimizing the stress. It is advised to take 175 deep breaths constantly every hour until tinnitus relief happens.

    6. Chiropractic: This helps to improve blood supply to the head and ears which can help with tinnitus in certain individuals.

    7. Diet, Vitamin and Nutritional Supplements: diets play a key role in the alternative treatment of tinnitus and vitamin and nutritional supplements help keep your immune system in shape.

    8. Lifestyle: Tinnitus sufferers should exercise regularly to help increase blood supply to the head.

    12. Low Level Laser Therapy: Low Level Laser Treatment (LLLT) for tinnitus has been practiced for about 20 years in Europe and is beginning to be recognized and practiced in Canada.
    It stimulates mitochondria in the cells to produce energy through the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate). Mitochondria are the power supplies of all cells; they metabolize (burn) fuel and produce energy for the cell in the form of ATP. In stimulating the mitochondria, laser therapy can repair damaged tissue and return cells to a healthy state, reversing many degenerative conditions.

    Of these, Low level Laser treatments for tinnitus are by far the most successful of all alternative treatments for tinnitus. Low Level Laser treatment is fast being acknowledged and accepted as the only safe treatment that brings positive results. Low Level Laser treatments do not have any side effects and have a long and proven history of relieving tinnitus.

  2. When I first got tinnitus almost one year ago, I became very frustrated and angry. It almost drove me nuts. I fought it every way I knew, diet, rest, meditation, etc, and for a short period became depressed. It slowly sank in that it was here to stay. I made a goal to get through the first year even though I wasn’t sure how it would happen. I had to accept it. I made a list of good things about my life to read at every opportunity. Researching everywhere I could, I found that most people with tinnitus (get ready for this) “learned to live with it”. Of course theirs wasn’t as bad as mine. At times mine was (and still is) quite loud – or so it seemed. Surely theirs was quieter than mine.
    Well, not three months later I burned that list of good things. Yes, by giving up and accepting it, I learned to live with it. I accepted it and quit fighting it. Don’t be mad, don’t fight it. There are a lot worse things. My ears ring all day every day. Some days loud, some days quiet…big deal. Its just a sound. It will never hurt me and it sure as heck doesn’t bother me any more. Oh sure sometimes it bothers me, but sometimes my job bothers me, sometimes my friends bother me, sometimes everything bothers us, it’s part of life.
    I am truly as happy as I’ve ever been, in fact I’m happier than ever. I have seen the beast and beat it. And you can be happy once again also. Set a goal to accept your tinnitus. At first you won’t believe it possible but don’t give up. See you on the happy side.

  3. I’m very glad that you wrote this article as I couldn’t explain it any better.
    And to a certain and further extent, I believe what you said applies to much more things than fighting that illness. Thank you.

  4. I too have been diagnosed with tinnitus as well as Meniere’s Disease without the harsher side affects. You see I lost 50% of my hearing (unfortunately I lost the lower tones of hearing) after an ear infection . Just trying to sit in the same room with a television set was agony for me. I would retreat to a portion of the house that had no noise which in my household is not easy. I remember waking up in the middle of the night crying because my ears were so loud it kept me from sleeping. I thought I never would be able to cope with it. In desperation I searched the internet for a cure. I have to admit I did go on medication for sleep as I am 64 and not as prone to put up with irritation as I was in my younger days but I ordered your program and it has done wonders for me. I remember listening to your first seminar and feeling an enormous weight lift off my shoulders. There was hope for me. I have since passed it along to my two sons who also suffer from severe tinnitus due to job noise. I also mentioned my improvement to my ENT and he wanted to know my new method of coping with my tinnitus and he readily agreed. I gave him your name and also a patient in the waiting room. The first thing I did was try not talking to anyone or complaining about my tinnitus for 2 weeks and believe me it was hard. Then I started to live my normal life again which includes a part time job and taking care of grandchildren. Then I started noticing I didn’t have to complain because I was actually not noticing the tinnitus as much. I was not letting it take first place in my life. Sometimes it is like an old friend, irritating, but something I am learning to deal with. I even have days that I don’t even notice it at all. I am still trying to figure out a main goal for myself which at my age is not easy but when I get a new email with one of your tinnitus articles I feel resurged again and share them with my friends.

  5. When I was diagnosed 10 years ago with Tinnitus my doctor told me that I could help my situation by avoiding 3 things:
    1. Caffeine
    2. Stress
    3. Alcohol

    I honestly laughed when he said it and replied “What are 4 through 6 because those first 3 items ARE my life. And if you tell me that they include sex and air travel we’ve got a real problem.”

    At that moment I knew that I’d have my Tinnitus for the rest of my life. Every once in a while it bugs me, but then I think of that moment with the doctor when he gave me the list and I laugh out loud. There are many days that go by now that I don’t even remember that I have Tinnitus, and frankly I’m just used it now.

    I don’t know if mine is better/worse than anyone else’s condition (how could I or they ever know) but every once in a while people ask me what it’s like. My usual response is “I hear dead people…all the time”.

    Smile folks – there ARE worse things that could happen to you.

  6. Very, very well put! The first step is to get out of ones comfort zone, and believe. Put your trust and faith into someone who has overcome. Without overstepping self made boundaries, one will never choose to concentrate on what could happen if other choices where made, rather than focusing on the problem.

  7. I think stress definitely negatively affects my tinnitus so I assume that tension is one of the causes. Positive thought, meditation, and guided imagery have helped me. I have yet to find a so-called ‘natural supplement’ that has helped in any way. In fact, the FDA and FTC should go after the charlatans.
