If you don’t know what tinnitus is, you probably know someone whose life is affected by it. And if you personally suffer from tinnitus, you understand how it disturbs daily life – sleep, communication, concentration – everything. Tinnitus is more widespread than most people realize, and it is the #1 health care problem that our veterans report when they return from service.
When I started working at Hough Ear Institute, I didn’t know there was a name for that ringing in my ears. I just assumed I was the only one. But years of playing music had taken their toll on my hearing health. Thankfully, my tinnitus isn’t painful or severe – but many people suffer so profoundly that they are overwhelmed with pain and distraction every single day.
The good news is that our researchers are onto something here in the lab. We believe they’re very possibly on track to create the FIRST EVER tinnitus treatment – and could very well be close to a cure. This is a real breakthrough because there is currently NO FDA approved treatment or cure for tinnitus.
What would you do for a loved one to help bring them relief? What would you do in order to get peace and quiet?
We are closer than ever to bringing this treatment to those who desperately need it! Our goal is to quiet tinnitus’ ring, so you can hear the sound of silence. I invite you to watch this video and share with your friends and loved ones. Tinnitus doesn’t wait around for a convenient time to show up, and we’re not waiting on a treatment – we’re creating one!
So thank you for your faithful encouragement and support as you courageously inspire us to keep moving ahead with these life-changing treatments! We are thankful for you!
