Tinnitus... If you do not know what it is let alone how to pronounce it, you probably do not have it! Thank goodness!
For Those of you who know what it is and know how to pronounce it, you either have it now or have some experience with it. The Webster’s dictionary definition of tinnitus is: a sensation of noise (as a ringing or roaring) that is caused by a bodily condition (as a disturbance of the auditory nerve or wax in the ear) and typically is of the subjective form which can only be heard by the one affected .
So now we all know the meaning of tinnitus!
There is no cure for tinnitus, but now there is help! Zen therapy, by Widex is a proven approach to help those suffering from tinnitus. What is Zen therapy? A comprehensive tinnitus management program provided by specially trained hearing health care providers by using Widex technology for amplification and Widex Zen for sound therapy in combination with an educational, counseling and stress reduction program. Patients are able to decrease the degree to which their tinnitus negatively impacts their quality of life.
Depending on each patients needs, the program will include a combination of the following:
