      Tinnitus Since:
      04/2010
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Syringing
      I don't know much about this, but the project website is:
      http://www.nanoear.org/index.php

      It's important to remember that fixing/generating hair cells doesn't necessarily fix tinnitus.

      As you know, sometimes even if the auditory nerve is surgically cut, the tinnitus still remains.

      But for some types of tinnitus this kind of advancement in regenerating hair cells etc could be the "cure" or at least an alleviation.

      Fascinating stuff anyways, the future looks promising.

      hearing loss
      This is quite amazing. However, the tinnitus "experts" are strangely silent on this emerging science as if it is like tonaki tinnitus protocol or something. It's like they want to focus on tinnitus as a stand alone issue and not like it's a symptom of some other issue. Surprise!!!

      That's the current paradigm of all western medicine right now, treat the symptoms instead of curing the disease. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
