Sleep disturbances, concentration disturbances…

Many of us are victims of tinnitus in their daily lives, sometimes to the unbearable.

Tinnitus are noises – whistling, whistling, … – that are heard in an ear (or both), either temporarily or continuously without having being emitted by an external source.

  • In developed countries, about 20% of the population suffers from hearing problems.
  • More than 10% of people are victims of tinnitus, and the tinnitus is permanent for about half of them, which is more or less 5% of the total population.

Tinnitus is therefore among the most common health problems today, and the trend is increasing.

While about 10% of them may be related to an objective cause, such as vascular disease, most of tinnitus are related to a dysfunction of the hearing nervous system, which may be caused by ear aging, acoustic trauma, or some ear pathologies.

Our ear is a complex organ that transforms the air vibrations received by the tympan into electric micro-signals that will then use the brain’s neuron circuits.

Scientists now agree that understanding and thus treatment of tinnitus requires a comprehensive approach in which the ear and the central nervous system must be considered together.

Until recently, treatment methods only made it possible to ‘live better with’ without providing real curative responses.

But several recent scientific works have led to sound-processing techniques that allow now significant improvements in more than 70% of cases.

Yoga, Sophrology, Hypnosis and different techniques of relaxation and meditation are known to generally bring improvements in the perception and experience of the tinnitus, but not to cure them.
