      Has any one tried pranayama?i came across a study done by Indian scientists showing effect of pranayama and brahmari pranayama (type of breathing technique )
      I tried brahmari pranayama while back and if If I remember correctly it did reduce the loudness temporary .I am going to try again and see if I see any reduction .it does provide a very deep relaxation ..May be that helped T.

      Hi, Sean,

      I've tried the alternate nostril breathing (awhile back), but none of the other breathing techniques.

      Here is a link to some pranayama breathing techniques to try:

      Karen - you can google brahmari pranayama and timnitus .
      Scientist who was conducting study had good logic .Since brahmari gives vagus nerve stimulation ( parasympathetic response ) it might help with T.
      There are other studies done in west where scientist have artificially try to Create relaxation response by stimulating vague nerves.
      Btw I am a fan of pranayama so I could be bit biased -:)
