It has been documented in therapeutic studies to greatly reduce symptoms in a large block of people that have been diagnosed to have had long term phantom noises in their head This is the best way to describe the eroding effects most commonly associated with tinnitus. Unfortunately, natural remedies and holistic approaches to healing has it’s fair share of skeptics. Using hypnosis therapy to treat tinnitus is a questionable technique largely because anything that is out of the box or rails against traditional medicine is often thought of as “quack” medicine. However, for the thousands of people who have found relief from their worst nightmare this could not be further from the truth.
There is a delicate balance between medical practitioners who frown upon such methods as hypnotherapy and millions of individuals who swear by such unconventional methods. So, I pose the question – which group is right? The answer to this still remains to be seen. Hypnosis for tinnitus, is regarded as a holistic approach for providing much needed relief for many persistent conditions.
