...When I got tinnitus years ago, my situation was miserable when I didn't find any information about anyone who has been cured. I tried getting information about treatment from doctors first and then mostly on the internet. I didn't have any access to any medicine/pills that I'd take and feel at least momentarily better (similar to when you get a headache). What was the worst part of it, though? The shocking statement I got from doctors that there isn't anything you can do about it. This took all my hope of having silence in my head again away. My life split into life before and after Tinnitus. Back then, I devoured every piece of information about Tinnitus on the internet. I was looking at every possible type of treatment. I addressed many people living with Tinnitus. I addressed healers, but sadly to no avail. No one has suggested anything to help me ease my suffering. The thought of finding anybody like me, who has a personal experience with Tinnitus and went through the path towards a positive change, would be very inspiring and motivating. When someone takes hope away from you right at the start, it takes every bit of energy you need to fight Tinnitus away from you. That's why, based on my experience, I decided to send the message that you can live a happy and fulfilling life with Tinnitus in the world. Even though you suffer from TINNITUS, you can be at peace!

Tinnitus (ringing in the ears) is a prevalent and often debilitating disorder with approximately 10% of people (incorporating ages from children to the elderly) perceiving it continuously, and in 1-3% of the population it seriously affects the quality of life. The most common cause of tinnitus is hearing loss, and its prevalence has surged as a result from the various large-scale military actions in the Middle East in the last decade. Recent advances have been made in the area of behavioral animal models, in the understanding of human brain imaging aspects of tinnitus, and in addressing the long-range changes in human brain connectivity. Furthermore continued exploration of the three major animal models of tinnitus: salicylate-induced, noise trauma induced, and resulting from somatic interactions with the auditory system has further delineated the relative roles of cochlear activity vs. central auditory system changes. Evidence for the role of neural synchrony changes in tinnitus originates both from human EEG and MEG studies as well as from neuron pair-correlation studies in animals.
Tinnitus and oversensitivity to sound are common and hitherto incurable, distressing conditions that affect a substantial number of the population. Pawel Jastreboff's discovery of the mechanisms by which tinnitus and decreased sound tolerance occur has led to a new and effective treatment called Tinnitus Retraining Therapy (TRT). Audiologists, ENT specialists, psychologists and counsellors around the world currently practise this technique, with very high success rates. TRT, the treatment developed by the authors from the model, has already proved to be the most effective and most widely practised worldwide. This book presents a definitive description and justification for the Jastreboff neurophysiological model of tinnitus, outlining the essentials of TRT, reviewing the research literature justifying their claims, and providing an expert critique of other therapeutic practices.

Dizziness and vertigo are symptoms related to peripheral vestibular disorders. These are among the most common complaints in medical offices, and knowledge of the major diseases affecting this system is of fundamental importance to the specialist in otolaryngology. In recent years, great advances have been made in otoneurology, which, coupled with increasing knowledge in the field of neurosciences, have substantially modified the approach of the patient with balance complaints. This book studies the most polemic of these vestibular diseases, the Meniere's disease.
Tinnitus is the perception of a sound when no external sound is present. The severity of tinnitus varies but it can be debilitating for many patients.

The large patient heterogeneity is considered to be the major obstacle for the development of effective treatment strategies against tinnitus. This eBook provides an inter- and multi-disciplinary collection of tinnitus research with the aim to better understand tinnitus heterogeneity and improve therapeutic outcomes.
