New Tinnitus study and possible treatment (via Science Daily)

Very interesting experimental results. Don’t know how or when it might be made into a widely available treatments. Details here:

On further searching, it looks like there is a device made by a company called Neuromod. Don't know if it's been prescribed, covered by insurance, etc.

"326 participants? Don't hold your breath."
I follow various early stage Pharma stocks and I can tell you that a 326 participant study is indeed a large study! How many do you think you need to determine safety & efficacy?
Thanks for this info.  Let’s hope trials continue to be successful and clinics open in the states. This ringing is a PIA. The other treatment I read about was literally destroying part of your brain. I did my own version of that as a teen and can’t afford to do more.  :-)
Thanks for that. Tinnitus is an interesting malady and (as someone noted above) a pain in the ass. Progress on a treatment for it is most welcome, I would gladly participate if offered the opportunity. Now, back to my own experiments with ghost peppers... 
Why does medicine always attempt to fix the symptoms instead of the cause. Imagine fixing a roof leak with the house foundation shaking. Attempting to fix the sound in your room by not paying attention to the room itself? Instead of an apparatus for the tinnitus, it should be for those whose bodies have been shown (criteria as stated, not disclosed in the article)) to not be deficient in the mineral copper, have excessive free radicals in the body, toxic overload in the body, Oxygen deficiency in the blood vessels. Now we have a salvage procedure that has possible merit with the device. Until enzyme pathways can function at optimum, organs begin to fail, maybe tinnitus is one of the first recognizable cracks in ones deterioration. Doesn’t necessarily have to be. I’m always reminded of an old definition of an optimist. A person that jumps out of a 10 story building and after each floor they pass, they say I’m OK.  
I've had 4000hz notch tinnitus since I was 25. It affects stereo imaging a bit. But just plain sucks...until last winter I lost every ounce of bass and all of the the upper end. When that happens, there is zero ability to form a soundstage. And little interest in enjoying music.

Lots of visits to result.
After a thorough review with a homeopathic intern as part of a case study, I decided to give it a shot.

A few food restrictions (no coffee was the toughest) later and my upper end came back.
I could hear a solid soundstage! Then it faded away. Now after my 2nd attempt, I have regained everything except the 4000hz notch. A hint of tinnitus remains but it's wonderful to have what I have now.

My point: do something about it. Try everything.
Homeopathy really works.  Understand that it doesn't seek to fix the symptom...but the root cause instead. It just gets your body back to balance. Then your body does the rest.

I'm 53. I also have a better sense of balance now (didn't even know that was an issue).
