Tinnitus: It’s not a Disease, it’s a Symptom!
If you have Tinnitus then you are most probably familiar with some of the most common causes. There is a whole list of them for you to choose from. Only when you start to analyze the known facts and their probable consequences will the whole scope of Tinnitus start to unfold. There can be a million reasons why you have Tinnitus. Let’s take a brief look at some of the most common symptoms for tinnitus. How many of these symptoms can you apply to yourself? Add more if you have to.
Lack of concentration, Headaches, Fatigue, Social retreat, Depressive moods, Lack of patience, Nervousness, Panic attacks, Anxiety, Apprehension, Stress and tension, Lack of self confidence, Insomnia, Exhaustion, Devaluation, Other than the hearing loss which is physical, all other symptoms listed here are of a subconscious nature. Let’s get 3 important things into perspective here. I will repeat these 3 sentences until they are tattooed into your soul. 1. Tinnitus is not a disease, it is a symptom! 2.
You are not sick and you are not mentally ill. You are being warned! 3. You will defeat tinnitus if you accept it as a part of you. As soon as you are ready to accept that the tinnitus is a part of you, the sooner you can expect to make progress. The power of the mind is extraordinary. Think about this carefully. If tinnitus succeeded in turning your life upside down then accept the fact that all it used to achieve misery was your own mind. That’s quite an achievement isn’t it ? That’s how powerful your mind is. If it has the capability to make your life a complete misery then surely it can be re-programmed to do the opposite. It’s entirely up to you.
The solution lies within yourself and your ability to learn. What do we know about the causes of tinnitus?. Where does it have its roots? Ever heard of social sickness? Me either. It’s a phrase that I like though. Here in Germany it’s called “Volkskrankheit “ ( has nothing to do with cars ). I once tried to compile a list of all elements which I suspected may have contributed to MY own tinnitus. Obviously, I listed the negative aspects of my life over a 10 year period. Some of these things could have been avoided, most of them were linked to each other. Don’t forget, this is only a list of things that I think should be mentioned. I’ve tried not to generalize and I’ve tried my best to stay honest, even if it means confessing to some bad sins.
To be perfectly honest it’s not as dramatic as it looks. It just looks outrageous when written down! Marital Stress, Heavy smoking, Drug and medication abuse, (i. Valium, Marijuana, Cocaine) Relationship crisis, unhealthy eating habits, Loud noises, Lack of exercise, High cholesterol, High blood sugar rate, Personal loss, Caffeine addiction ( coffee and cola ) Lack of sleep, Financial Problems, Overweight, Business pressures, Inclination to worry about everything. So…….there we have it. It looks terrible I know. The worst thing is that I am one of millions who used to live like this. If you can’t identify with anything written on this list then you shouldn’t have tinnitus. Any one of these elements on their own would be harmful enough for any person.
Combine them and you’re left with a time bomb waiting to explode. So now we have two lists. The first one above describes the symptoms and the second one describes possible causes. If you look carefully at the causes it won’t take much imagination to conjure up a "symptom list" like the one above. What else do you expect?. I dare you…………Take a pen and paper…write down your own "bad list". Be absolutely honest and write down all the things that you aren’t proud of or maybe would rather forget. Write down all the things you would like to change if you had a magic wand. ( My bad list is there for everyone to see.
