Muffling the Ringing

Researchers Use Specialized Music Therapy to Help Tinnitus Sufferers

Ringing is reduced in tinnitus sufferers after listening to music stripped of certain tones.

Ringing is reduced in tinnitus sufferers after listening to music stripped of certain tones.

One of the greatest benefits of subscribing to my weekly newsletter is that it provides you with the most up to date information available in health news.  So if there was something I reported last week about what you can do to improve your health, you can guarantee I’ll add or change those recommendations should it be warranted.   Perhaps an example would better explain what I mean.

Last week I released my tinnitus report.  It had the most up-to-date information on what can be done to reduce that ringing in your ears.  But there’s since been a study that shows how people can reduce the ringing even more.

The findings come on the heels of a warning issued by the European Union Scientific Committee on Emerging and Newly Identified Health Risks on what people can do to better protect their hearing.  Hearing loss has never been higher than it is today, particularly in industrialized countries, with people everywhere blaring their music at excessive levels.

But researchers from Germany are using the very thing that caused so much damage—music—for relief.

Researchers did so through the use of specialized technology that “stripped” music of the tones that the participants heard in their ears.  The participants would do their best to mimic the tone that they heard in their heads, and then the researchers could take that similar sound out of the music being played.

For a year, the participants listened to their songs, each tailored to their tinnitus tone.  And according to the findings published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the music did the trick.  Compared to those who listened to a placebo kind of music (the placebo being a song that wasn’t manipulated in any way), there was a “distinct” decrease in the loudness of the ringing.

The study included 39 men and women who had chronic tinnitus for at least five years.  Each group listened to their specialized music for about 12 hours per week.

The study’s lead researcher, Christo Pantev from Westfalian Wilhelms University, says that the music treatment is low cost and effective, which suggests that this kind of technology is available here in the states.  Talk to your ear, nose and throat doctor about what resources are available in your area.  And please consult my tinnitus report if you haven’t already.  I’m confident it can help resolve your tinnitus symptoms.
