Over the past few years the ringing in my ears wouldn’t stop and I found out it was called Tinnitus, it got me thinking why tinnitus occurs? So I have put together this website to ask all the questions I can about why tinnitus and how I can explore this topic. So I definitely invite you to join me on this journey, and maybe even help find out the reasons why tinnitus happens and what we can do about it.
I have heard from some that there is no cure and I never believe that kind of talk. There is always a reason that things happen in life and it my also my belief that it is our responsibility to find out why it is and what we can do about it. It is my responsibility to go outside what most think and find the thought leaders, the products the services that will help move this topic forward in a positive way.
Funny enough it may mean that even though my ears are ringing I will have to listen closely to hear what is being said on this topic of why tinnitus and we can do about it.
First of all, you need to understand that Tinnitus affects a lot of people. In fact, fully 10% of the world’s population has Tinnitus. With no official “medical”cure for this disease, many people previously were left with just trying to effectively manage it. While the exact causes of the condition are currently unknown, we do know that the following can cause or contribute to the condition:
- Changes to the bones of the inner ear
- Earwax blockages
- Exposure to loud noises (note that this can be either a one-time, sudden event, or longer term, continuous exposure)
- Age (for many people, hearing problems begin around age 60)
So some pretty interesting information right? Well let’s get started to learn really why tinnitus is such a challenge and what we can do about it for our better wellbeing.
