How does Tinnitus happen?
The Hearing Brain – A Sensory Path
- The ear collects mechanical (sound) energy
- Highly sensitive receptors convert mechanical energy to electrical energy
- Electrical energy (signals) are sent to communicate to the brain
Tinnitus = A Misprocessing of Signals
A (normally) benign sound is perceived as a threat, triggering the “fight or flight” response to alert the body of danger.
What can I do about my tinnitus?
While there is currently no cure or remedy to stop tinnitus outright, "learn to live with it" is not an acceptable solution.
