      Hi,

      I found this video to be so complete, informative, and non-biased that I wanted to share it with you. I wish I'd had a doctor explain it to me like that at the start. The guy's so incredibly old-school in a good way it's a charm.

      On a side note, don't know if he's reading an autocue, but he's so eloquent on the the subject and so fluent I'm in awe from that alone. Hope you enjoy!

      You can see from his eye movements that he's reading it from a teleprompter.

      To Barotoli:

      Thanks ever so much for locating and posting this. This is unequalled in knowledgeability, assessment of etiology, causation, a consideration of the whole gamut of variable characteristics, and a bluntly realistic assessment of all of the peripherally, marginally effective, widely touted "treatments" that have been ballyhooed by numerous quacks.

      His presentational style is very engaging and persuasive. I only wish I had had the opportunity to view this before I spent $5,269.00 on Desyncra; he comments that you should receive "a second opinion" when considering such "revolutionary" new treatments (and I'll wager that this would include his assessment of Lenire).

      He also makes a very forthright assessment of the serious limitations of TRT. His assessment of the only partial effectiveness of hearing aids is the best I have yet encountered.

      In conclusion:

      Good News: In only 27 minutes he exhaustively covered the truly impressive, current state of all of the medical / anatomical / physiological knowledge regarding tinnitus, as well as all of the false starts towards a cure.

      Bad News: There is still not a f___king real discovery that would create an approach to any genuinely practicable drug and/or method of sound reduction.

      However, with this much analysis perhaps we can be very much more confident than in the past that such a breakthrough discovery will suddenly be revealed.

      Once again, the sheer laughable rhetoric of Julian Cowan Hill is indicated when compared to this Doctor's erudition.
