In cases of Tinnitus the causes can be recognized and completely resolved in the course of 1 - 2 "Health Coaching" sessions.
Acute noises in the ears are common. Current estimates suggest that about 25 percent of the population have had ringing in the ears, although this occurred only temporarily.
Tinnitus (noises in the ear) is generally understood to be the persistent or recurrent subjective perception of a sound or noise which other people cannot hear. Current studies show that in relation to other noises in the ear, this occurs less often, can occur at any age and affects about four percent of all adults, with women being more frequently affected by tinnitus than men.
Owing to the increasing noise pollution in everyday life, but also due to loud music, tinnitus is also becoming increasingly common among adolescents and young adults up to the age of 30.
The causes of tinnitus disorders are not fully understood by orthodox medicine. One factor which is self-evident is the fact that noise pollution and stress promote the development of tinnitus and reinforce existing noises in the ear such that they can become chronic.
In terms of the conventional medical treatment of the symptoms, tinnitus is treated, for example, by regular blood pressure checks and the administration of anti-inflammatory and circulation-promoting active substances in the form of infusions or tablets. Because tinnitus is one of the stress-induced diseases, it is generally recommended as part of tinnitus treatment to learn relaxation techniques which are intended to counteract everyday stress factors and triggers and render the daily management of this disease bearable.
However, many sufferers experience tinnitus as being very stressful, not least because of its accompanying symptoms in the form of insomnia, anxiety and depression, which also restrict the quality of everyday life and may even result in incapacity for work. The continual internal noises in the ear cause the sufferer to become irritable and have difficulty concentrating. As these accompanying symptoms cause further stress, a vicious circle often arises which in turn increases the tinnitus.
