As a tinnitus sufferer, you have already experienced the impact this awful condition can have on your life. If you are struggling to cope, it may help to know that you are not alone. Many people are going through the same difficulties as you are and it seems that nobody finds it easy to deal with.
That awful buzzing in your ears, accompanied by dizziness and other symptoms, has a terrible impact on the lives of most sufferers. Stress, irritability, lack of sleep, and difficulty eating are common side effects in people who suffer from tinnitus. For myself, there were times where I couldn’t sleep, it was so bad.
A friend recommended a system called Tinnitus Miracle … a downloadable guide that uses retraining therapy and holistic methods to reduce the symptoms.
I thought it was a rip off and a scam … after all, if it was a “miracle”, wouldn’t science have already published something?
I bought it anyway, based on the experience of a friend (more of that below), and knowing there’s a money back guarantee. I wanted to see if there was something in there that my doctor didn’t mention. You never know …
Here’s my review and experiences with the guide …
At the age of 29, Thomas Coleman was diagnosed with tinnitus. It made his life unbearable and he was determined to find a solution, even though doctors told him that the disease was impossible to cure completely.
Coleman spent 12 years trying to find a way to get rid of the ringing in his ears. He was so determined to beat this that during his research he tried numerous methods including:
Despite doing all those things, nothing worked for him. Even the surgery failed. It seemed to help a little for the first few weeks, but after that Thomas’s tinnitus symptoms got even worse.
After 12 years of suffering and research, Coleman finally discovered a combination of methods that worked for him. He compiled his techniques into a book called Tinnitus Miracle to help other Tinnitus suffers like me and you to beat the nightmare that is Tinnitus.
His cure didn’t involve just one solution. Thomas found success using 5 separate steps. He claims that by using his plan, Tinnitus sufferers can begin to live a normal peaceful life, without the awful buzzing, ringing and banging noises that have become part of their everyday lives.
1. Dietary Changes
Dietary changes are an important part of the 5 step holistic plan. These dietary improvements involve eating more foods that boost your immune system, learning how to eliminate foods that could make your Tinnitus worse, and ensuring that you have a sufficient intake of all the essential vitamins and minerals you body needs.
2. The Immune System
The plan explains the effects that Tinnitus can have on your immune system and gives plenty of suggestions on how to protect it, including the use of herbs, exercises and various activities.
3. Tinnitus Retraining
The 4 point Tinnitus Retraining Program is the third step of the plan. This involves retraining your brain and ears using Neurophysiologic Retraining Therapy. It involves breaking the connection between Tinnitus noises and a particular reaction. This sounds kind of complicated, but the detailed explanation in Coleman’s plan seems simple and straightforward to follow.
4. Detox Plan
The next step of the plan involves a special liver cleansing and detox plan. Coleman explains that a toxic digestive system can cause many other illnesses, which lead to side effects such as tinnitus.
Hypnotherapy is the final part of the plan. After interviewing several tinnitus sufferers, Coleman tried hypnotherapy himself as an important part of the cure, as it can help you to identify the actual cause of your tinnitus.
There is no doubt that Coleman’s plan is thorough and well researched, but does it actually work?
Yes … and no.
First of all, the guide is definitely misleading … there’s no actual “miracle” in this book. (If there was, it would be all over Oprah, debated by scientists, and vigorously researched and debated.)
I did try all the steps, and yes, my tinnitus actually did go down in volume … not completely, but it did help enough that I can sleep better at night. After suffering for six years, this is the first time that it’s gone back down to a point where I almost don’t notice it!
No, though, because it hasn’t completely gone away. But for a cost of a restaurant meal, I would say it’s definitely worth it.
I also have a story from my friend Julie, whom I meant through a tinnitus support group. She tried it before me, and her story is what had me try it as well. She agreed to tell her story:
Julie’s Story – the 9 Year Tinnitus Nightmare
Julie had suffered from Tinnitus for 9 years when she heard about Thomas Coleman’s Tinnitus Miracle. The disease had made her life a total misery. In addition to the horrendous buzzing and ringing in her ears, Tinnitus affected Julie’s balance.
Things got so bad that she was forced to give up work. Her GP prescribed anti-depressants but after six months, the Tinnitus had not improved.
“On top of the tinnitus, the anti-depressants made things even worse”, Julie explained. “The drugs turned me into a zombie, I was sleepy all the time, and the Tinnitus was still unbearable.”
So Julie was desperate when she heard about Tinnitus Miracle, but she was also skeptical. “I never used to have much faith in natural remedies,” she explained. “And I figured that if the medical profession couldn’t cure Tinnitus, it was unlikely that someone without a medical background could help.”
But she was desperate so she decided to give it a go, and within one month of beginning the plan Julie’s Tinnitus symptoms had nearly disappeared. She explains that she was tempted to skip the hypnotherapy step altogether, but it helped her to get to the bottom of what caused her Tinnitus.
“Up until then, I had no idea what triggered my Tinnitus”, Julie explained. She had always believed that her Tinnitus was caused by a physical illness but it turns out that it was a response to a traumatic incident that she had been involved in.
Julie followed all five steps of the plan, although she was not convinced that the dietary changes and Tinnitus Miracle could help. But they did. She explained that the biggest disadvantage to Tinnitus Miracle is trying to re-educate your way of thinking.
“If you are used to relying on the medical profession for health problems, and you’re suspicious about “holistic therapies” it is difficult to convince yourself that the plan will work, Julie explains.
“I forced myself to give it a go, but I’m so glad that I did because now my Tinnitus symptoms have gone completely and I feel much healthier too.”
Thomas Coleman spent years trying to cure his Tinnitus, and I did wonder if his cure was down to coincidence. Maybe his Tinnitus had just gone away? It was only after speaking to Julie and others who had tried Tinnitus Miracle that I realized it worked for them too.
It’s a great system but you have to commit yourself to following all 5 steps of the plan, if you are serious about reducing your Tinnitus. I didn’t say “cure” or “miracle”, because that’s not what the book is about. It’s a series of alternative therapies and the theory that the ringing in your ears is more mental than physical.
If there is a physical reason for your tinnitus (due to years of listening to loud music or some traumatic noise that permanently ruined your hearing), I don’t know if it will work for you. I would try it anyway, as there’s some good tips that could reduce the buzzing.
Given that success rates from surgery are low, and there is no medical cure for Tinnitus, I would recommend this guide to anyone who is looking for a cure for this horrible condition. Over 200,000 people have tried it.
It also comes with 3 months of personal coaching with the author, a 60-day money back guarantee, and bonuses on relaxation and sleeping techniques.
