Contacting the Consumer Wellness Center

I thought I would post my message to the Consumer Wellness Center, because there is a bit of a technical issue at their contact form here http://www.consumerwellness.or...ntact.html. This way, I won’t forget to try again to get through to them! 🙂

—————————————————

Dear Mike and the Consumer Wellness Center Board,

I launched a growing membership community at http://www.curetinnitus.org this past December. With about 200 free-subscribers and 12 or so “real” members since then, along with a well-earned strong position in Google for “cure tinnitus,” we are growing in visits, subscribers, members, attention, and responsibility.

There are a lot of things for me to take care of at this stage of the game, not the least of which is ensuring that we survive as an organization. Can the Consumer Wellness Center help in any way? What are the application procedures for grants?

I would be happy to provide guest access to CureTinnitus.org for evaluation purposes. Also, your group may be able to put me in contact with additional practitioners who have successfully treated tinnitus. One of our main missions is to give people with tinnitus the ability to see and hear real success stories. You may also have access to research regarding tinnitus, anxiety, panic, shock, stress, the fight or flight response, etc. that I haven’t uncovered yet.

Looking forward to your response,
Dainis W. Michel
Founder CureTinnitus.org

Open letter to Ellen and John of t-gone.com, about the Cure Tinnitus Community at curetinnitus.org

Subject: Your Potential Collaboration in a Cure Tinnitus Community as an Experiment in Conscious Commerce
———————

Dear Ellen and John,

This may sound unusual, but I’m contacting you to see if you would be interested in considering participating in an online endeavor in “conscious commerce” relating to supporting people with tinnitus. Your participation could be as little as providing a few articles or as in-depth as providing weekly webinars, and there are many options in between. The community can be a platform for you to present your product and results.

I understand that the “open letter” format is quite forward, and I hope that you will accept it as possibly the only way for me to gain the attention of the kinds of experts and organizations I wish to attract to this project. I already sent you an email, to which I received no reply, and I can only assume that my first attempt at contacting you just didn’t get through. Fortunately, your public reply will likely help more people than if we keep this between us.

The social experience will take place at curetinnitus.org, and here are the short details.

1) Support community for people dedicated to curing their own tinnitus
(taking full responsibility for their actions and health)

2) Initial limit of 1,000 members

3) Donation-based commerce

I’ve made the “consicous commerce” business plan available here:
http://blog.curetinnitus.org/c...ness-plan/

If you are interested in talking further, please let me know!

Sincerely,
Dainis W. Michel

Your participation could be as little as providing a few articles or as in-depth as providing weekly webinars, and there are many options in between. As the clinical director of the Oregon Tinnitus & Hyperacusis Treatment Clinic, Inc., your breadth of experience would certainly be a valuable addition to our online community, which would provide you with a beneficial outreach venue.

Dear Dr. Wazen,

Your participation could be as little as providing a few articles or as in-depth as providing weekly webinars, and there are many options in between. Having heard that Neuromonics launched the first U.S. clinical study to assess long-term tinnitus treatment with you as the author of the study, certainly makes me and the Tinnitus Community very interested in your study and your results.
