No tinnitus patient should ever feel that he or she needs to just live with it because tinnitus therapy is available.

The “Clinical Practice Guideline for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Tinnitus.” (Tunkel ) from the leaders of tinnitus therapy, say that tinnitus treatment must include a full understanding of tinnitus (cognition), relaxation, good sleep, and regular actions known to benefit patients –in other words, treat the whole person. The Whole Person Program for Tinnitus Relief (WPPTR) includes these principles.
Grossan: “Too often tinnitus patients are told to “just live with it.” However, the guidelines and my clinical experience show that there is good therapy available. For example, the Guidelines speak of the significance of sleep for therapy. In WPPRT there are details of how to utilize better sleep for tinnitus relief. (Lasisi)
Cognitive therapy is stressed in the Guidelines. This means that the more a patient understands what tinnitus is (it is not a growth) and his reaction to it, (mindfulness), the better he or she can heal.
It is important that patients understand the many factors that can affect tinnitus. For example, Temporomandibular Joint Disorder can affect tinnitus, and actions to correct this are in WPPTR (Vernon)
The subjects in the guidelines, cognition, biofeedback, stress reduction, supplements are all covered in the WPPTR book, available at http://www.drgrossantinnitus.com. Dr. Grossan has originated the use of biofeedback for tinnitus. (Grossan)
The Guidelines stress that no single supplement is known to cure tinnitus. (Smith) In the WPPTR book Dr. Grossan explains how combining the products of hearing function are used in the Tinnitus Caps.
Dr. Grossan: “It is important to utilize the actions that are known to benefit tinnitus patients. In my book I have explained why they work and how to use them personally for tinnitus relief. By utilizing the whole person – the mind, the stress system, the ear and, cognition, many patients with tinnitus are benefitted. Tinnitus patients do not need to “just live with it.”
