About

Something can be done.

Tinnitus Toolbox Hyperacusis Handbook covers currently available international science-based approaches including self-help, professional treatments, clinical trials, and experimental research for people with tinnitus or hyperacusis.

For people in the hearing loss and Deaf communities, coping tools are included that don’t rely on sound or hearing.

This book presents you with the tools needed to cope better and have a higher quality of life.

Excerpt

Noise is unwanted sound. Unwanted because the person doesn’t like the sound, doesn’t like the loudness, or doesn’t like how it’s there all the time. That’s tinnitus and hyperacusis in a nutshell. Unwanted sound.

Treatments for tinnitus were first written on ancient Mesopotamian clay tablets. That’s over 5,000 years ago. They used exorcisms for ear ghosts, spells or prayers whispered into ears, and herbal treatments. Tinnitus treatments continued through the ancient Greeks to the Victorian 1800s. And then tinnitus fell off the radar.
