Walk for a Cure

As some of you may already know, the ATA is doing a walk for the cure on May 16, 2009. There is a physical walk in Irvine Regional Park and a virtual walk online.  All donations to to the walk or in support of walkers will help fund research, just like the research going on at UCI. Just go to ATA.org for more info.

As I am a student/part time worker, money has always been an issue, so I will be a walker and gathering sponsors as well (if anyone is willing to support my walk i would be eternally grateful).  Whether or not the ATA will ever come up with a “cure” is debatable, but more research and treatments couldn’t hurt.

All the best,

Study for University of California, Irvine

Just letting everyone in the community know that I may be able to participate in a study conducted by the UCI team (lead by Dr Qing Tang and Dr Fan- Gang Zeng). They are interested in my case because not only do I have tinnitus, but I also experience some distortion of sound in my left ear (probably due to cochlear and/or nerve damage). UCI has been doing numerous amounts of research related to tinnitus and hearing/speech in general so I’m hoping by participating in the research I can help out as well. I will let you know the latest as time passes.

Cheers,

Superfoods

Dainis, a question towards super foods. In one of your previous videos, you mentioned how super foods gave you energy and made you feel great! By doing this, was your tinnitus lowered or less noticable? Are there special ingredients/recipes you used? Has anyone else tried specific foods made them feel better or lowered their tinnitus?
