Tinnitus relief and hypnosis
Getting relief from tinnitus by using hypnosis has been shrouded in mystery for some time now, looking on the internet has provided a mixed opinion about the effectiveness of hypnotherapy for tinnitus relief. So can it really help? What are the facts?
Getting relief from tinnitus
Getting relief from tinnitus is the most important issue for tinnitus sufferers. It is a holy grail to find that cure that at the moment seems as far away as ever. Science is making progress in the treatment of tinnitus, but as far as I can ascertain there is still no definitive cause for tinnitus that has been identified as yet.
Perhaps that is because no two sufferers experience the same noises. Tinnitus is different for different people. So it is understandable that everyone needs different treatment.
And with our current NHS cutbacks providing one on one specialist treatment is very often not an option that is offered. Sure you can talk with a audiologist, but are they a specialist in dealing with tinnitus. Many are only trained to deal with general hearing loss. And funding for CBT is also limited.
There must be another way?
Tinnitus relief scams?
One of the recommendations of the British Tinnitus Association is that you do not keep looking for miracle cures, whether that be drugs, vitamins, herbs, alcohol, or laser treatment. None of them have been proved to work for a significant number of tinnitus sufferers.
Different things will work for certain individuals. Much of this sporadic success is though probably down to the placebo effect, where you believe it will work so strongly that your mind makes it happen.
Hypnosis for tinnitus relief
This placebo effect leads rather neatly on to the subject of using hypnosis for tinnitus relief.
Essentially the placebo effect enlists the power of the mind to overcome issues that were once perceived as being a threat or a problem. This just the area that hypnosis works with, helping the subconscious mind to see things in a different way.
Hypnosis is well known for being able to help with pain relief and the same principles can be applied to the sounds of tinnitus.
Is hypnosis for tinnitus relief a miracle? Certainly not!
No is the answer, hypnosis cannot cure tinnitus. There is at the moment no known cure. Hypnosis can help you to come to terms with your tinnitus, to relate to it in a different way.
Acceptance is the first step to being able to habituate to the noise. Once you start to focus on other things than your tinnitus then the brain perceives it as less of a threat and the noise starts to fade into the background.
The other major area is working with stress and anxiety, these often make the tinnitus worse, and of course as you already know hypnosis is very accomplished in getting results in this area.
