Crowd Sourcing Campaign To Help Those Most In Need (1)

YouTube Preview Image


Hi, I’d like to take a moment to talk with you about the history, present day situation, and the future of CureTinnitus.org.

My name is dainis w michel, and i started CureTinnitus.org when I came down with a severe case of tinnitus, and the only option I felt was appropriate for me, was getting better.

My personal case was so severe that ending my life would have been a completely understandable choice — however — I was able to improve — and I documented the process. To figure out what to do, I traveled extensively, interviewed doctors and therapists, and condensed the information into 5 simple guidelines.

With 28 Cure Tinnitus Shows, several recorded interviews, support videos, articles, and online courses, over the years, CureTinnitus.org became one of the most trafficked websites about tinnitus in the world, serving between 3 and 600 unique visitors per day.

But really, throughout this entire time, I have had, and because of that, the organization has had — one particularly significant flaw.

Now, I’m not sure if it’s really a flaw — but here is what it is:

I get contacted fairly regularly by people who have spent their last pennies, they are broke and desperate, and they are sometimes even suicidal.

Do you think it’s possible for me to correspond with a suicidal teenager and say “hey but go get one of your parents’ credit cards so i can charge you and we can talk?”

Can I charge a depressed musician who may just call it quits if what I say doesn’t help?

Can I charge a woman whose in-laws are so cruel to her, that their treatment of her is clearly one of the reasons she even has tinnitus?

I can’t do it.

How To Participate Here

The first step is to register for our Complimentary 7-day Tinnitus Liberation First Steps eCourse. Registration can be anonymous, and if anonymity is important to you, please let us know. For some members, anonymity is vital, and you can set your display name to be just about anything you like (no profanity of course!). We promise to do our absolute best to maintain your profile as anonymous, though really the statement: “Google knows everything” isn’t a joke. You can customize the appearance of your name to be anonymous if you like, however, a valid email address is required for registration.

If you talk with people about it, you’ll find a lot of people say stuff like: “oh I’ve got that too,” or “my uncle has that and it is killing him,” or “I thought that was normal,” etc. About 10% of the population “has” tinnitus. Of that, for 10% (so 1% total), tinnitus is a horrific experience (it was for me).

So, if you want to be anonymous, please register with a valid email and choose a username. You can use your real first and last names, then go into “Member Details” and modify your profile to set your display name to be your username. Then, we can communicate normally (on a real first name basis) via email, but your name won’t be public.

Then, when you visit, you log in, experience our platform, and get to know us better.

When you register — you agree to leave appropriate and helpful comments for the CureTinnitus.org community. Your presence is welcome, as long as you participate.

The next step, if you feel helped, is to choose a member level.

You can choose “select your own donation amount” and thereby gain access to our Self-Paced CureTinnitus.org Program for a monthly donation amount of your choosing. Donation-based Membership does not include paid downloads such as Julian Cowan Hill’s eBook “Tinnitus: From Tyrant to Friend.”

You can also choose from our standard Self-Paced or Guided-Support CureTinnitus.org Programs, and pricing is available here: http://www.curetinnitus.org/jo...nitus-org/

We are considering offering more intensive coaching packages as well.

Please understand that even though you may be in crisis, so are a lot of people with tinnitus. It does not make your pain any less, but your pain does not entitle you to post inflammatory, angry, or abusive remarks at CureTinnitus.org. Because of the nature of tinnitus, we simply must take the steps mentioned, both financial and with registration — to keep CureTinnitus.org a wholesome, safe, loving place where people can find support, help, and guidance while they improve their well being and thereby reduce tinnitus.

Join CureTinnitus.org

Unwanted Sounds In Your Ears Like Chirps Whistles Pulses and Ringing Can Seem Awful, And Your Situation May Feel Helpless,


Our online tinnitus healing community gives you the power to heal yourself by learning from people who have already done it successfully…

This site will help you understand what tinnitus is, whether it's curable or not, and what you can do right now to start feeling better...

There are many ways you may have come across this page. A fried referred you, you were doing research online, you are alone and suffering and tired of the noises in your ears, you were searching around CureTinnitus.org and one of our pages redirected you to join our site so that you can read more, etc. And I am very glad you are here. This website is the culmination of almost 10 years of getting better from tinnitus for hundreds of people.

You may be weary of all the info online, positive, negative, hopeful, hopeless -- and I understand you may be in a difficult spot in many many ways. I STRONGLY urge you, if you are suffering from tinnitus, to go through the information below, to AT LEAST take our Complimentary 7-day Tinnitus Liberation First Steps eCourse -- and to consider real membership here at CureTinnitus.org at a price point of your own choosing (you can donate any amount you want).

Though some may criticize the requirement of any donation whatsoever, the volume of traffic, the amount of video content, fending off regular spam and other kinds of online attacks, managing the small but vocal minority of angry and abusive people who make threatening and damaging remarks, along with the construction, planning, and maintenance costs of a site like CureTinnitus.org make our work impossible without your financial support.

We are here to help...

From: Dainis W. Michel

If you are suffering, I understand, I was there too... Doctors, audiologists, and other practitioners saying: "tinnitus is incurable, there's nothing you can do, you just have to learn to live with it" is just not good enough for you, just like it wasn't enough for me.

At the same time, claims like "3 easy steps to eliminate your tinnitus in less than 2 months" sound too good to be true (and for the most part, are). And instead of long-term therapies designed to teach you how to live with it, wouldn't you love to learn how to manage, reduce and eliminate your tinnitus as soon as possible?

That's how I felt, and "learning to live with it" simply was not an option for me. You see, I am a composer and choral conductor, and I used to have howling tinnitus. In fact, when I came down with it, I was living in misery and on the verge of suicide. But instead of ending my life or staying stuck in misery, I flew around the world and learned to resolve my tinnitus issue. Tens of thousands of dollars and miles later, I partnered with a leading expert in tinnitus, and together we created a step by step, doable, proven coaching program to help you manage, reduce, and possibly eliminate your tinnitus. ...you can wind up feeling really really alone I know you want to be rid of your tinnitus as easily as possible.

I've heard from more than a few people that they would cut off a limb to be rid of tinnitus. I had similar thoughts. But with so much conflicting information out there and many doctors just throwing up their arms and unable to help, you can wind up feeling really really alone. Left completely alone. You may feel you've been abandoned by the medical community, scammed by eBook writers, deflated by the infectous grief of fellow tinnitus sufferers, and all you want to do is heal, to get better... But how can you heal?

I am in a unique position to help you...right now...starting today. Basically, because it got too expensive for me to keep flying around the world meeting various practitioners, I started interviewing them via telephone and online. I decided it makes sense to learn from people who'd already healed themselves of tinnitus, so I met as many people who had done that as I could.

During my travels and especially when I started doing online interviews, I met some amazing therapists and people. Tinnitus tends to strengthen character, and people who've come out on the other side are really AMAZING. Every single one made a choice. Every single one went on an individual journey of empowerment and relief. We now call that journey "liberation from tinnitus." Here's our video on the incurability of tinnitus debate:

Is Tinnitus Curable?

Dainis W. Michel of CureTinnitus.org interviews Kevin Hogan, Julian Cowan Hill, Paul Tobey and Dr. Hans Greuel about the curability of tinnitus.

Dear YouTube:
I cannot imagine that YouTube is against wholesome, scientifically grounded, honest, helpful and well-designed information. Quite likely the ban of my “is tinnitus curable?” video was just a mistake, with complaints initiated by angry, jealous, predatory, or lost personalities. Click HERE And Participate

Here is the original video link, which will not play unless YouTube/Google repeal their removal of this scientifically sound, loving, caring, and life-saving information created by experts: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...2uLI4HrzCo


Make your comments at one or all the following websites: YouTube, FaceBook, CureTinnitus.org, Google.

Go from tinnitus to liberation. Basically, this letter presents you with a choice to start on the path to liberation from tinnitus and wind up grateful you had it...or remain stuck where you are. Now I want you to be just as amazing as these incredible people, who've healed themselves of one of the toughest conditions to "cure" out there. Tinnitus is so tough to lick, in fact, that many uninformed people will insist that tinnitus is incurable...it can get really really ugly...I know. It's really unfortunate that there are therapists and medical practitioners who actually believe that tinnitus is incurable, and they only try to help you if you accept that "fact." But, you can't argue with reason, and I want to take that head on: if there is just one person in the world who's cured tinnitus, then it's not incurable...that's just sound logic. And guess what? Little did I know, there ARE people out there who've healed themselves. They were tough to dig up, and many don't want the attention, and there is nothing more in the world that would bring me more joy than to add you (anonymous, or otherwise) to the list of success stories here at CureTinnitus.org.

Crowd Sourcing Video Script (Draft 2)

Hi, I’d like to take a moment to talk with you about the history, present day situation, and the future of CureTinnitus.org.

My name is dainis w michel, and i started CureTinnitus.org when I came down with a severe case of tinnitus, and the only option I felt was appropriate for me, was getting better.

With just over a decade online, I’ve been able to take the website from being a simple personal survival blog to offering: 3 online courses, 12 tinnitus support videos, 5 interviews, 28 Cure Tinnitus Shows, dozens of helpful articles, an easy-to-follow process known as the 5 CureTinnitus.org Program Guidelines, and, we get about 500 unique visitors per day.

To date, 168 people have gone through at least a portion of our course offerings, and thousands have gained benefit from our relentless work and dedication to helping people cope with and hopefully heal from tinnitus.

While that may sound grand, and it is wonderful to receive emails and testimonials from people who go so far as to thank CureTinnitus.org for saving their lives, the reality is that the website serves as a safety net for the most desperate among us. Either via email, Facebook, phone calls or Skype, I get contacted frequently by people who tell me that they are considering committing suicide.

Do you think I can email back a suicidal teenager and ask for a parent’s credit card?

What about the frustrated musicians who feel they may never play music again, who directly mention contemplating ending it all, who’ve spent their entire savings on medical treatments and therapies?

What about the stay-at-home mom whose inlaws behavior is so vile that the way they treat her certainly contributes to her stress and illness?

Even when a tired, overworked, wealthy-sounding businessman calls — I simply don’t know how to ask for money in those situations. Maybe even that wealthy businessman needs and deserves — contact with someone who is willing to listen — and give.

Give care
Give time
Give information and attention

…and not ask for anything in return — at least, i mean, at least — until they are out of crisis. When they are off the bridge, off the cliff, when the gun is out of their mouths, the rope is put away, and when the bottle of pills is safely in the medicine cabinet or even the garbage.

Now I personally can’t field the kind of need that there is out there, but I CAN create an organization that can help.

I can’t do it alone, I can’t do it with my financial and energetic resources alone. But with your help, maybe WE can.

As a quick aside, national tinnitus associations like the British Tinnitus Association, the American and Australian Tinnitus Associations, and others, have done a tremendous job at creating public awareness campaigns and spearheading safety regulations for ear protection & tinnitus prevention.

Where CureTinnitus.org comes in, is after the fact, in helping people cope with the onset of tinnitus and figure out where to go from there.

We need at least 12 stable months with at least $2000 USD per month in donations, to stabilize the organization.

At that funding level, I can make sure CureTinnitus.org consistently answers email, phone, and chat inquiries, and I can organize group calls.

After a stable year, we can look at electing a board, and we can ask ourselves whether it makes sense to become a not-for-profit entity.

If we fail to give CureTinnitus.org the funding it needs, I will likely do two things 1. compile the CureTinnitus.org website into a virtual product and sell it for at least $1000 and 2. make access to me personally, to talk about tinnitus, very very expensive.

Maybe I’ve personally done enough for the community of people who have tinnitus, and maybe it is time to end an era. But I personally feel we owe it to our children, our grandchildren, and future generations to provide them with healthy, accurate, healing, life-saving information about what you can do, if you happen to come down with tinnitus.

I feel it is imperative that the organization become self-sustaining so that the information can continue to be improved and can be made available, indefinitely.

Currently donations are made to me personally, because setting up the organization any other way has shown to be too expensive.

If I get the appropriate funding, and if by the grace of fate, we exceed our funding goals, I can promise you that CureTinnitus.org will be a stellar, helpful, kind, and honest resource for anyone who winds up suffering with tinnitus.

Your donations will be warmly appreciated, you can donate below, it can be a one time or recurring donation, and thank you for your time and attention.

Ringing in the New Year With a New Number!

Happy New Year Dear CureTinnitus.org Family,

How are you? Your reports of progress, of healing, of coping, of surviving — are all inspirational and beautiful. Thank you for them. If you haven’t been in touch for a while (or at all), do let me (and us) know how you’re doing.

Also, guess what? Our old number is now defunct!

I really loved that number, it was +1 317 713 1177. I could not believe the sequence of numbers when I got it, but alas, the service simply couldn’t provide much, well, service.

Our new number is: +1 312 273 9505. It is a Chicago number and will function mostly as a voicemail, though I can configure it to ring me wherever I am.

To ring in the new ringer with a celebration, I will be available from 8AM to 3:30PM CET time for CureTinnitus.org calls from Monday January 12th, through Friday January 16th 2015. If I cannot pick up, please leave a message and I will get back to you.

Let’s make this year one of well being and healing!

dainis w michel
Founder of CureTinnitus.org

PS — Stay tuned for our projects in 2015 :-)

Hey, is tinnitus a thing of the past for you?

How are you?

Was CureTinnitus.org able to help you? Are you applying some form of our 5 Program Guidelines in your life?

Also, feel free to get in touch with us on FB right here https://www.facebook.com/curet...nnitus.org

Blessings and as always wishing you all the very best!

what is the deepest desire of someone with tinnitus?

What, in your opinion, is the deepest desire of someone with tinnitus?

Is it to get better?

Is it to “find a cure?”

Is it to “be cured?”

Do you have tinnitus?

If I honestly ask myself what is my most primal desire: it is to receive compassion, to receive pity, to be loved even when I am weak. To be accepted in my state. To have my pain accepted and to be treated with care love sensitivity and kindness.

If you have tinnitus — what is your deepest desire — really?

CureTinnitus.org 4.0 Coming Up!

Dear CureTinnitus.org Family,

I am pleased to announce the upcoming CureTinnitus.org 4.0 Member Website. While the site is under construction, as I have done before, I am making all of the CureTinnitus.org videos, content and information available to all visitors.

The draft website is here: [draft site now active] Soon the normal http://www.curetinnitus.org domain will resolve to the redesigned site, and all of us will have a faster, clearer, and more reliable experience at CureTinnitus.org.

At the time of writing, the site is not yet styled, but it is on a MUCH MUCH MUCH faster server. The member functionality does not work yet, and bits and pieces of the website (like navigation), are missing.

So now’s a good time to come in and comment and make CureTinnitus.org even better for you — and for those who follow in your footsteps.

Upcoming events:

  • indiegogo drive to become a real not-for-profit by 2014
  • a “choose your own donation amount” member level that gives access to the self-paced support program

Let me know how you can help.

Removing Fake Registrations From CureTinnitus.org Call For Funding

I think the core message of this video is: I do not find running CureTinnitus.org as a “business” ethical (so what do i do when a suicidal teenager calls?), but I cannot afford to run CureTinnitus.org as a service without funding. Here are a few vids of me doing stuff like deleting spam registrations at the website, which is what happens when you have a prominent website that serves a good amount of data and has a fair amount of traffic.

Please let me know if you can be of assistance by providing funding for CureTinnitus.org. Also, we have had some programmers come through and offer work, but really, life moves on, people get better from tinnitus, and it is unfair to ask people to work without providing fair compensation. So, basically, I am preparing to create a crowd-sourcing campaign to make curetinnitus.org into a real not-for-profit organization by 2014.

When members join our current programs — they get excellent help. Join if you can afford it.
