Toning and Energy Alignment to Heal Tinnitus

This is an excerpt from Positive Health Online Issue 220 – February 2015. The full article can be found at: Toning and Energy Alignment to Heal Tinnitus.

Tinnitus is often described as a noise in the head, interestingly the word is taken from the Latin word ‘tinnire’ which means ringing or a tinkling bell. However, my clients who suffered from tinnitus have more frequently described the ‘noise’ in their head as a continuous loud buzzing, droning, whispering, humming or whistling. The sounds are more audible, seem louder and are more of a problem when it’s quiet, or when they are trying to go to sleep.

According to The British Tinnitus Association, Tinnitus affects 10% of the population of the United Kingdom permanently and affects millions across the world. Tinnitus is the most common injury arising from the conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq and another alarming fact states that 75% of 18 to 30 year-olds who go to nightclubs and concerts may experience temporary tinnitus. It is obvious, therefore that many are in need of both emotional and practical support.

Orthodox medicine describes Tinnitus as a condition that can result from a wide range of underlying causes, which include neurological damage, ear infections, foreign objects in the ear, nasal allergies, wax build-up and more commonly, exposure to loud sounds. Although Doctors may tell their patients that “nothing can be done to alleviate it” and to “go away and live with it” because there is no known cure, sound therapy is now recognized as an important part of tinnitus management.

Scientific research into neurophysiology is currently exploring how tinnitus is generated in the brain and is using scientifically chosen electronic tones to disrupt the tinnitus, the aim being to mask and decrease the intensity of the sound. Electronic sound generators have been patented to mask the tinnitus; according to the literature this doesn’t eradicate the problem but allows sufferers to adapt to their tinnitus over time. Other forms of therapy include sound enrichment, which fills the head with therapeutic sounds such as the lapping of waves on the sea shore; this distracts the brain to a new focus of sound and again helps to mask the tinnitus.

Having studied the metaphysics of healing impairment and the links to memory and consciousness, I have found that toning (an ancient method of healing with the voice) offers a successful way of eradicating the symptoms. The toning process reduces tension within the ear and harmonizes vibrations of sound carried to the brain and to the subtle frequencies beyond. A structured and monitored programme of tones and energy alignment, instils a feeling of well-being throughout the body to enhance the process.
