NOTE FROM TINNITUS TALK: Universal Sound Therapy, UST, is very likely nothing more but a scam. The very first thing you will notice is that UST offers CDs for all sorts of ails. That should alarm you. Then you will see that all of the reviews on their site are positive, 5 or 4-star reviews. That should alarm you. There is no treatment for any disease on this Earth that would gather only positive reviews. Finally and most importantly, UST is not based on actual tested science. It does not meet any of the usual guidelines for bringing a new treatment to market. You will do yourself a great service by reading these two following discussions from start to end. They will not take a lot of your time. How to Spot Pseudoscience A Primer on Scientific Testing Always remember that people who are desperate for a cure or treatment, are the most susceptible to all sorts of scams and promises. You are not a gullible person, do remember to think long and hard before you hand out your money. The original message by calin begins below. This marks the end of this notice by Tinnitus Talk. —————————————————————————————————————————————— I just joined you all! HI! I wanted to share this treatment which I started 3 days ago. I believe it is based on cymatics which I resonate with. It makes sense to me! Has anybody tried it? Here is the link which I posted on my introduction thread as well. http://www.universalsoundtherapy.com/products/tinnitus.html You can read the reviews on that page. Also, I spoke on the phone with the owner and he said he beat tinnitus after 4 months using the treatment. I see on the link for the reviews that others found relief or cure in less time though. What I am hearing on the CD for Tinnitis is tones/frequencies. At first, I had to place the headphones just off of my ear. I am ok with them on my ears now, and even feel a sense of comfort while listening to the tones. I am on the computer while listening, so the 45 minutes is no bother. I will be glad to answer any questions about this therapy if I can, but if you call the number listed on the contact page, they are more than happy talking to you. Dick is the owner and is very friendly and helpful! There is some reduction already in the intensity of the TT, but I am not sure if it will be lasting. I have only just started the treatment so I will be patient! calin There has been scientific testing on this technology. This is just a recent couple of links I have found. If you care to do some research on the UST technology.... http://www.elizabethbauerconsults.com/pdfs/EHE'07.pdf - This paper was forwarded (email) to me from UST when I asked to see it. It was mentioned on the UST site. www.elizabethbauerconsults.com/pdfs/Frac1.pdf. This link came from the UST site - http://www.universalsoundtherapy.com/FAQ.html Perhaps the reviews are from honest people making an honest review. Germs could not be seen in the 1800s, and therefore surgeons did not wash their hands for hygiene. Skeptics ridiculed those doctors that advocated washing their hands... http://www.accessexcellence.org/AE/AEC/CC/hand_background.php We have come a long way since then. We can even heal with LIGHT! Why is it so hard to accept sound? You may be a skeptic, but one shouldn't close off the technology until one gets all the facts and experienced it if need be.
