In the last 2 years, new discoveries have been made in tinnitus therapy. Researchers and physicians at University of California Irvine have discovered that certain unique sounds can make the ear ringing sound (tinnitus) to give significant relief for some periods of time. These sounds can be used to reduce tinnitus even when listened to for a short time. The problem that has been found is that finding these sounds was found to require significant time consuming sessions in physician or audiology testing.

In life, there are very few health problems that one can resolve on-line!
If you want to avoid the flu, then you make an appointment with your

infection? Can't receive antibiotics thru your computer's finger pad. It
almost seems silly to contemplate a resolution of any medical condition
via the Internet.
However, through music therapy, some help may be a click away!
"Tinnitus" a condition suffered by millions throughout the world may be
addressed while sitting at home in front of your computer. "Beyondtinnitus"
is a website designed to help those who suffer the "endless ringing in the ears"
or the constant "cacophony of chirping birds."
From Beyondtinnitus.com, we read the following;
"Tinnitus is the perception of sound in the absence of sound." Like the Phantom of the opera, it seems more appropriate to describe it as "a figment of the imagination." For years, tinnitus was thought to be the result of ear damage, specifically located in the cochlea region. Instead, research now suggests that it "affects the areas directly around the damaged zones in the brain. Is it possible to turn off certain frequencies, sounds that appear to be of the imagination? Beyondtinnitus.com suggests that, through music therapy, it is possible and consultation in the privacy of your own home is a reality. This is the new wave of tinnitus treatment, however, results are only now beginning to prove its effectiveness!
