Many people find relief from tinnitus using good tinnitus management techniques, such as sound therapy and CBT.


Practicing positive thinking, healthy dietary and lifestyle habits, and using a variety of the MindEar tinnitus tools, tinnitus relief can be achieved

Let’s start off with some positive thinking – many people find relief from their tinnitus by using a variety of exercises and techniques to help them manage their tinnitus symptoms. This is typically referred to as tinnitus management. How long tinnitus lasts can vary greatly. In some cases, tinnitus can be temporary and go away on its own, while in others, it may be persistent or even chronic. Even for those who struggle with chronic tinnitus, reducing the impact tinnitus has on your life is within your reach.

Whether or not tinnitus is chronic, typically depends on the underlying cause of the condition. If tinnitus is caused by temporary factors such as a certain medication you are taking, it may go away once the medication is discontinued. However, if tinnitus is caused by damage to the auditory system, such as noise-induced hearing loss, or other underlying conditions such as Meniere's disease, it may be more persistent and chronic and take more time and effort to improve. Many people will start to experience some relief from their tinnitus in the first few months when participating in some form of tinnitus management. For others, it can take longer. How long it takes to achieve some relief depends on the techniques you are using and how committed you are to using those techniques on a regular basis.

Regardless of the duration or severity of your tinnitus there are many techniques and tools you can use to help alleviate the symptoms and achieve a better sense of overall wellness. 

Tinnitus Management Techniques: 

1. Sound therapy

Sound therapy can help introduce sound that can help the tinnitus blend into the background and be less noticeable.

2. Relaxation exercises

Relaxation exercises, such as deep breathing, progressive muscle relaxation, and meditation, can help reduce stress and anxiety.

3. Mindfulness

Mindfulness is the practice of being present in the moment and non-judgmentally observing your thoughts and feelings. 

4. Physical exercise

Exercise is an excellent way to reduce stress and anxiety. Exercise releases endorphins, which are natural mood boosters.

It is also very important to practice healthy daily habits, such as getting enough sleep each night and eating a healthy diet, as these healthy daily practices can help reduce fatigue, irritability, and stress, and have a positive effect on your overall wellness.
