      After trying many different "cures" and 1 year of T, I'm going Back to Basics.
      Philosophy: Calm Down and De-Stress yourself, learn to forget.

      I spent about $70 on these supplies
      See attached image ...

      Buy the 5 most well known calming herbs in tincture bottles from a health food store:
      Valerian Root
      Lemon Balm
      Passion Flower
      Chamomile
      Kava Root (careful with this one, I heard it might not be good for your liver).

      Buy 2 types of Tea:
      Peppermint
      Nighty Night (a mix of herbs)

      Around 11AM or NOON
      Make a large hot cup of Peppermint tea.
      Add a few drops of each of the 5 herb tinctures.
      Slowly and calmly drink

      Around 9 or 10PM
      Make a large hot cup of Nighty Night tea
      Add a few drops of each of the 5 herb tinctures.
      Slowly and calmly drink

      Do this every day/night.
      Do not multitask on other things when doing this.
      Make time for yourself to do this.

      I am on day 3 and I do notice a little improvement.

      Stay away from loud noises.
      Stay away from negative thoughts, debates, politics, and any anger.
      Good luck everybody.

      Hi, Lance. You posted about your "relaxation mix" in December 2015. Are you still using this protocol? If so, has there been any additional improvement in your tinnitus?

      I used those herbs a lot for a month and there was some improvement.
      I have not been using it religiously because life got real busy.

      I think what is actually helping more than any pill or concoction is to "force" myself to relax.
      Relaxation and rest is the key.

      Set aside time each day to relax, do breathing, etc ..

      Thanks for the feedback. Someone posted today about the Headspace app, also good for relaxation.

      Lance, here's the link to the thread post where you can follow up on getting this app.

      Thanks for the ASMR tip. The concept is interesting. I did some research on it, watched some videos, but maybe I'm just impervious to the popular videos, because nothing happened. I have experienced the sensation, though, and didn't know it was some sort of Internet phenomenon. :)

      Apparently the videos of Bob Ross, now deceased, are a trigger for ASMR. This video, with over 7 million views, was given as an example. He does have (did have) a nice soothing voice. The scraping of tool against the canvas might be too much for someone with hyperacusis.
