Methods to retrain the auditory cortex and limbic system to ignore or minimise tinnitus noise. Since as yet, there is not cure for tinnitus; any methods of retraining/reprogramming habituation are valuable.
Most methods revolve around a technique for relaxation, often through listening to music (Mozart is good, also quiet sounds from nature). Next step is to retrain or habituate the mid brain to distinguish between “real” sounds (words, a door creaking, a kettle whistling), and “false” sounds that have no real meaning (tinnitus sounds). With practice and by using distracting techniques like masking music, keeping busy, the “false” sounds fade into the background quite a bit.
Stress, agitation, illness, tiredness (not to mention a couple of glasses of red wine) all play a role in exaggerating tinnitus, that’s why a relaxation technique is essential. NOT focussing on the tinnitus sounds using whatever distractions comes next. Keep practising and relief will surely come. We also recognise that the additional sounds created by Hearing Aids also provide a similar and very positive distraction from Tinnitus.
