    Right now, my biggest issue is sleep and how to break the vicious cycle that sleep deprivation causes. I can cope with tinnitus during the day and have been working on relaxing and letting go. Sometimes, when I go to sleep, I manage to muster a positive attitude and to relax relatively well. However, with rare exception the tinnitus then wakes me after five or six hours of sleep and I find it almost impossible to get back to sleep. This is what makes the tinnitus so threatening to me and — at least in part — what perpetuates my fight or flight state. So, how can think of tinnitus as a “friend” when it’s robbing me of desperately needed sleep? More practically, how can I sleep? (I have the best white noise generator I could find…) Thanks!!!

    Onion Juice
    A very popular home treatment is to put 2-3 drops of onion
    juice into each ear with an eye dropper. Hold the juice in for
    approximately 30 minutes with cotton balls. This treatment
    has proven effective for many people, and the relief comes
    immediately. The best part is that it is a very inexpensive
    treatment option, and can be re-applied anytime you start to
    notice your tinnitus symptoms coming back.

    Hi Jason, for the next few days, along with working on the things form Julian’s eBook, I’ll be cleaning my ears with a bit of thymian oil. Basic cleaning is one thing, though, and the whole “learning to get out of fight or flight” is another…I can now clearly see when I go into fight or flight…and I can see that I haven’t given myself enough of a chance to regenerate.

    I’m glad the onion juice is helping you and thanks for the ipod tip.
