      Hello George, hope you are doing well! I saw a few posts of yours talking about MRI machines and which are the quietest! I'm in the same boat and have been researching like crazy! Do you think the Canon Vantage Galan 3T or the Canon Vantage Orian 1.5T is quieter? Also, have you gone through with the MRI and if so, what was your experience like?
      Thanks!

        I don't know about the difference in noise level between those two canon machines but what I do know is that 1.5T machines are generally quieter than 3T machines and in one study it was 105db vs 128db across all sequences which is a significant difference in loudness. In another study the noisiest sequences were 101-117db vs 122-131db.

        @NoelleMargaret I just realized that I did not answer the second part of your question. No I did not get the MRI, my treatment center would not coordinate with the location with the Canon machine.

      Hi George,

      I have read some of your positive posts which I appreciate.

      Can you suggest a natural strategy for insomnia? I can fall asleep (around 8-9) but wake two hours later, awake for an hour then asleep for two hours.

      Thanks!

        @bigfoot insomnia can come from so many things and I have experienced most of them. First foods. Don't eat past 9 PM, don't eat heavy spicy meals, sugar or alcohol in the evening. exercise routinely but not too late. Turn off all mobile device screens at night, no tv in the bedroom. Cooler bedroom temps, some people sleep better with a weighted blanket. Go to bed before midnight, same time every night.

        Try daily relaxation techniques to quiet your mind like meditation or yoga. Take a daily high quality magnesium supplement. Some people have luck with supplements such as melatonin, valerian, chamomile.Don't watch the news, stay away from toxic people, spend time with good friends and loved ones. Good luck.

      Hey, George! I've been lurking on TinnitusTalk for some time, but I've decided to be braver and get involved more.

      I just wanted to personally comment on your profile that you have helped me a lot when it came to times when I was emotionally distraught. You're a beacon of perseverance for everyone here, and I'm praying for you to find good health.

      Keep being extraordinary!

        Hawaii is magical. Kauai was our favorite place on earth although we enjoyed all of the islands

      2/3: at what I feel has been the "playing down" of our condition and the lack of understanding given to severe sufferers anger at success stories which sometimes do this. I can see you get this, and I appreciate that you are the kind of individual who can empathise even with the person attacking you, as you did me.

      1/3: @GeorgeLG, please accept my apology for attacking your post in the Suicidal thread this week. I'd like you to understand this was not because I have a problem with you, it was more, you happened to be the 1000th (un)lucky caller who took the brunt of my frustration
