If you do your research, medical advice websites and home encyclopedias recommend that you clean the outside of your ears, and some make sure that you don’t try ear candling.
Here are some questions:
If the passageways from my outer ear to my inner ear to my nasal/sinus cavities are clogged up due to pollution and other factors, why should I not put “anything” into my ears?
If people put oil into their ears and it helps the wax come out, thus supporting the natural process of the ear cleaning itself…why shouldn’t I do that? Also, why would the medical community have so much advice about leaving ear cleaning to professionals? I mean, am I going to jab some kind of object in my ear? I’m not foolish. As a matter of fact, I’m just talking about putting oil into my ears. AND, you can even BUY ear oils. Now just because something is available for sale does not mean that one should purchase or use it, but it seems to me that the whole idea of “leave your ears to the professionals” takes the power away from the person whose ears they actually are.
Why would doctors advise their patients against ear candling? Because they may burn themselves or their home? Well, maybe their patients can handle fire responsibly. What about benefit to the ears?
Doesn’t it make sense that having clean ears and nasal passages is a good idea for everyone, not just people with tinnitus?
Cheers and many blessings!
Were you told that your tinnitus was noise induced? Hmm…
There’s another theory.
Dr. Greuel of Duesseldorf Germany claims that noise-induced tinnitus is generally a “frozen” or “locked” fight or flight response. So, the noise was there, however, the tinnitus itself, whether there was noise or not, is caused by the “locked” stress reaction.
Noise then becomes “just another stressor,” like the ones from our relationships, jobs, and lifestyles.
Kind of cool, huh?
Presents a whole new path to healing for some, as it offers the possibility of “once you unlock your fight or flight response, and it comes back into normal function (your facial skin isn’t drawn back, you can smile naturally, you can handle everyday stressors easily, etc.), then the tinnitus will be gone.”
It’s a theory that Dr. Greuel has used with his patients for decades, and in my opinion, it’s worth considering.

If you have tinnitus, I invite you to ask yourself, “how much of your budget is really for you?” If you know know someone who has tinnitus, but don’t have it yourself, I invite you to assess how much of that person’s money goes to him/herself, and how much goes to others.
There are likely people with tinnitus, who might have “mirrors” or “reflections” of issues with giving and receiving, however, I invite you to contemplate victim and sacrificial patterning along with your treatment of tinnitus or your support of someone with tinnitus. Maybe you have tinnitus, but drive everyone around you into serving you. Maybe you have tinnitus, and you relentlessly serve others without receiving.
So, that’s why I ask, how much of your budget is really for you?
Budgeting is a “result” of your internal patterning…so I could also ask…how much of your time is really for you?
- Do these questions speak to you?
- In what way?
What is a tinnitus victim? Are you a tinnitus victim? What does that make you and what can you do about it?
Folks, I’ve been trying to figure out what to call myself and others who have tinnitus. I’ve tried:
- Tinnitus patient
- Tinnitus victim
- Tinnitus sufferer
- Tinnitus survivor
- Person with tinnitus
…and none of them really fit…and the phrase “tinnitus victim” really got to me, so I looked up “victim” at dictionary.com.
Here are synonyms of “victim.”
Roget’s II: The New Thesaurus
Main Entry: dupe
Part of Speech: noun
Definition: A person who is easily deceived or victimized.
Synonyms: butt, fool, gull, lamb, pushover
Whoah! Are we being called “tinnitus dupes?” “tinnitus pushovers?” Well, if that’s what victim means, then I better come up with something better to call myself…you know?
How about you?
After working with Dr. Greuel in Germany, who has treated tens of thousands of tinnitus patients, I realized that I fit the “character type” for patients that wind up seeing Dr. Greuel. It’s possible that Dr. Greuel’s tinnitus patient character analysis may be accurate, and I will do my best to recount it here. I loaned Dr. Greuel’s books to someone who moved away without giving them back, so I have to do my best to remember:
Tinnitus patient characteristics:
- Business owners
- Serve others at their own expense
- Are sometimes “too” punctual or “too” something, which often leads to excellent results…at the patient’s expense
- Take a lot of responsibility on their shoulders (especially responsibility for others)
- High-stress jobs, lifestyle, difficult to relax
- Have stressors and pressures in their relationships
- High expectations of self and others
There are others as well, but I can’t remember right now.
Instead of lowering our standards, is there a way to have healthy high standards?
Is there a way to take care of others while taking care of ourselves?
Do you fit any of these characteristics? What additional characteristics do you think contribute to your tinnitus?
With going to a doctor and saying “I have tinnitus” generally causing the response “too bad for you, what time is it, I have to go to lunch, that’s a complicated disease, there’s no cure, you have to live with it, now I really have to go.”
Why not try the following strategy:
Cure everything else you have.
- List every disease or condition you have.
- List everything you’re happy and unhappy about in your life.
- Cure all of your diseases and conditions
- Bring yourself into a state of happiness with your life.
For example, I had allergies before I came down with tinnitus. Now I don’t have allergies anymore. I had some kind of pre liver condition. Now I don’t anymore. I still have muscular-skeletal issues to work out…so I’m doing that.
No use crying over my tinnitus, if I still have other conditions to work on…know what I mean?
PS: Of course, the goal is: once all of the underlying conditions are taken care of, the tinnitus will be gone. It’s working so far.
In the early 21st century, we are awakening to the difference between being sick and having been made sick. Do you really “have” a condition or disease if you’ve been exposed to toxic fumes, food, water, air, and products? If your body is overloaded with toxins and parasites, and you trusted the authorities to provide you with a healthy foods, good air, safe products, and nourishing water…does that make you sick, or are you sick because you were “made” to be sick?
