D: In this video, Julian and I are going to tell our tinnitus stories. Should I start or do you want to start?

J: You go first

D: OK, I came down with tinnitus on February 15th at 4:30PM in 2002. We are recording this video on August 6th of 2009. Basically, it was a loud howl. I was lying down like this and when I woke up it went crack, and I had this huge hiss and howl in my left ear. And it got to the point, really for me, I was actually figuring out ways that I was going to write letters to my friends and family, because I did not want to continue living with the volume of tinnitus the way it was.

What’s interesting is that instead of going that route, what I did is I decided to pursue some treatments to see if they would help. I did Neuro-Cranial-Restoration which is a chiropractic technique, and I learned something called BioMental Training, which is something done by a German doctor, and you learn how to activate your body’s own healing reflexes with a meditative technique. And what happened was is that I learned how to directly directly lower the tinnitus. I mean if it was here (high gesture with hands), I just learned how to make it go foof (gesture down to almost nothing). I’ve had many many days where tinnitus has not been in my consciousness at all. I can still hear it when going to sleep and waking up at times.

But I do a lot of studio work and musical work, and I actually do these training exercises before I really need my best hearing, and I haven’t done a test to show this, but I think my hearing is better than when the tinnitus started. I’m pretty sure it is, because I seem to have very accurate and very fine hearing.

So really, that’s my story, and to get rid of just that last little bit, and I think that people will see it in my face, and they’ll see it in my consciousness, that frankly, I actually want to move all the way from tinnitus to complete liberation, and maybe that’s stress that I’m causing myself, but I want to let go of tinnitus completely and that’s a goal of mine, and I know Julian has (done just that), so I put together CureTinnitus.org, frankly, because I was tired of flying around the world.

I mean, I flew to Germany, I flew to Denver, I live in Vienna Austria, I flew to Los Angeles California, and then I went to go visit you, so I flew to London. I mean, it was just getting ridiculous in terms of the cost and the personal effort. So, I thought, CureTinnitus.org, I already owned the domain. I figured I could gather people who’ve healed themselves. And that instead of focusing on studying disease, that I would create an organization that focuses on health and on well being, and that by doing that, it would be a part of my healing process.

So, that’s what it’s been for me so far, it’s been a tremendous amount of work for me, it’s been a labor of love. And that’s how CureTinnitus.org came to be and that’s what it represents for me. So that’s my tinnitus story, Julian.

J: Yeah, and just hearing you say that, it makes me realize that when tinnitus gets much better, when we have many days without tinnitus and we’re not focused on it, letting go of tinnitus can involve letting go of the need to let go. So you are no longer bothering to need to let go of tinnitus. And when you get to that stage, you really know that it’s not a problem anymore.

So with me, my tinntus, I’m 43 years old, and I started to have tinnitus when I was 16. And I went to the doctor, and it wasn’t bad at all, and he just said it was a part of getting older. He didn’t really say anything. It was very unhelpful. About 16 years later, maybe a bit more, I had a very stressful period in my life, and my tinnitus went through the roof, and I went to a doctor again, and he referred me to an audiologist, no, I first went to an ENT specialist, who was appalling, and he said “you’ve got tinnitus, there’s nothing you can do about it, learn to live with it, and by the way, you’re deaf.”

The whole thing was a really big shock for me, and I had a very negative reaction to that. Needless to say, my tinnitus got much worse. Fortunately, a friend of the family suggested going to a cranio-sacral therapist, and I had never heard of cranio-sacral therapy. But I will never forget lying down on the couch and this guy put his hands behind my head and just sat there in stillness, and I felt my body going PHEW Pscheeeiuu, and I felt all these senses of pressure and releasing in my body, and I couldn’t believe that I just found myself settling into the couch and my mind just sort of slowed down, and I dropped into a state of well being…possibly for the first time EVER in my life. I mean I was 35 or something 33 years old, and I got off the couch, and I had to drive home at like 30 miles an hour…really really slowly, and I felt really calm and settled, and I kept on laughing.

And I had an extraordinary reaction. And so I went back for some more treatments, and about 6 months, and my tinnitus changed during the treatment as well, and it backed off. It got much more manageable. 6 months later, I had probably I don’t know 4, 5 sessions. I actually woke up one morning in total silence.

And so after what had been like 18 years or really, I mean having tinnitus, and I had really bad tinnitus, I’m not going to go into all the gory details, it was very bad. To go from that into silence was very very inspiring, and I was so amazed by this process, I decided to train with a cranio-sacral therapist, and when I was a student I started practicing on people with tinnitus, and I’ve just always had a busy practice, even when I was a student. I started helping other people with tinnitus.

And my tinnitus would come and go. It would come back and it would back off and it would spike and it would do all sorts of things. But over these last 10 years, it’s receded into nothingness. And it takes a hell of a lot to bring it back these days. I mean, if I go skiing for 6 hours non stop, or if I drink 3 or 4 cups of coffee or if I have a cold, and that was always a bad thing for me, these days it might just appear in the tiniest way, but it’s very very brief, and very temporary, and it backs off very very readily. And I’ve gone from one extreme to the other.

And that’s why I set up my practice, and I’ve helped loads of people with tinnitus, and I’m very very grateful to my tinnitus, because it has transformed my life, and it has taught me how to listen to the body in a way that I never would have dreamt possible. Before, I used to live in my head. I was in a head space, which tinnitus loves.

But tinnitus said “listen to your body” and that’s what it’s doing, it’s getting you to listen to your body. And by really learning to do that, I’m very grounded these days, and I’m very in touch with well being. And that’s why I haven’t got tinnitus. So this, health-o-meter that tinnitus has become has really led me into a lifestyle that suits me and a space of health and well being that I’ve never been in before. You know, I’ve never been so well. You talk about aging being difficult, but if you really look after yourself, actually, you can feel better, quite a lot better.

So that’s really my story with tinnitus, and because I’ve let go of my tinnitus, I can’t bear it when other people have tinnitus, and I feel like I really want to help them let go of tinnitus, because I know it’s a moveable feast. You know, everything changes and nothing makes me more angry when somebody says there’s nothing you can do about tinnitus, because it is simply not true. I know we can do a lot to help our tinnitus. I know this. You know, doctors have said “that’s nonsense,” and I say “I know. It’s true. I can’t pretend any other way.”

And I also know with clients, having worked with hundreds of people, that other people can let go of it too. So, I’m in this sort of interesting, strangely positive situation, but I struggle when other people have it, because I want them to let go of it too.

Hi [firstname],

Long-term tinnitus is no joke. According to Dr. Hans Greuel from Germany, ignoring your tinnitus and learning to live with it leaves you at risk for further medical complications:

Tinnitus is an illness that stems from specific risk factors, therefore, it is important to learn how to cure it. Learning to live with it means further complications, reduction in health, and even the risk of having a stroke. (Dr. Hans Greuel, Tinnitus Specialist.)
