You are welcome to info [ at ] californiatinnitus [ dot ] com links to scientifically based tinnitus and hyperacusis information that you find on the Internet. The best Dr. Olsson has found to date are:
The American Tinnitus Association
Tinnitus & Hyperacusis Center, Emery University – Dr. Jastreboff’s site. Includes discussion of tinnitus, habituation therapy, references and links.
The Tinnitus Retraining Therapy Association
Doctor James Henry of the Veterans’ Administration in Portland, Oregon has written an excellent article on Optimizing Tinnitus Retraining Therapy Success that was published in Tinnitus Today. That article has been reproduced, with permission, on the General Hearing Instruments website. (Click on “Tinnitus” in the links on the left of the page; scroll down about one-third of the page.)
Neuromonics is an advancement on Tinnitus Retraining Therapy. The key difference lies in a more efficient and effective form of sound therapy, one that appears to reduce the treatment time from 12-24 months to 6-7 months, with significant progress typically occurring within 2 months (that’s substantially sooner than is expected with TRT).
The Hyperacusis Site (www.visi.com), the most accurate and informative site Dr. Olsson has found on this subject.
www.tinnitus-audiology.com has a complete list of drugs with tinnitus side effects, plus general tinnitus information.
The Royal National Institute for Deaf People.(www.ucl.ac.uk) Written by Dr. Jonathan Hazell, one of the co-developers of the habituation, or retraining, therapy, this site includes considerable discussion of Tinnitus Retraining Therapy along with academic references.
Southeastern Comprehensive Tinnitus Clinic. Stephen M. Nagler, M.D., FACS (of Today Show fame), Director. Doctor Nagler’s perspective is worth the visit to this site, as are his comments on sleep, homeopathy, and several other topics, including Tinnitus Spouse Survival.
Tinnitus Information and a tinnitus message board (sponsored by a large for-profit audiology and hearing aid chain).
The German Tinnitus-Liga pages
Hearing Health Magazine
Health6.com, a self-proclaimed “Comprehensive Health Directory.” Some of the tinnitus links are to useful sites. Others, particularly those that promise a “cure,” are questionable.
Diseasesconditions.com, another self-proclaimed comprehensive directory. No search feature, & listings do not seem to have been screened for scientific or clinical efficacy.
