      Outrageous. $100 for nothing... I couldn't really live with myself if I was behind these snake oils. Preying on people who are most likely to try anything they might think could give them relief. :mad:

      That reminds me of the place that sells 2 - $2 bills for $10 plus you get certificates of authenticity. Good racket for taking advantage of morons, eh?

      I truly hate these con-artists who profit from the vulnerable. Though I would have never described myself as vulnerable, in the early days I would have eaten eye of newt or squirrels gonads if I'd been told they could cure tinnitus. (and I'm veggie, too!)

      Now a little older and a lot wiser in this respect I steer clear.

      Just to say there has never been ANY double-blind crossover trial of ANY homeopathic 'remedy' which has shown that the homeopathic 'drug' is capable of treating anything, so it makes me instantly suspicious.

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      At the beginning, I was in a frame of mind that makes people vulnerable to this type of thing. And yes, I bought 2 different products. One from a local drugstore and one online. I spent $28 in total. The one I got online I haven't used yet. The other one, well I figured that since I already spent the money, I might as well use it. No change so far. They're pills you dissolve under your tongue 3x per day. There are 70 pills in a bottle, which would last 23 days. And of course, they say that you need to keep it up for 30-45 days at least, which means you would need at the very least 2-3 $14 bottles. Of course I should have known better. But I would have urinated on an electric fence at that point if I would have thought it would have helped. That's what these scam artists count on. If I would have done any research I would have known that 6X means that an "active ingredient" has been diluted to 1/1,000,000th of it's original potency. After I'd bought it I googled it and saw it advertised on 2 unrelated websites. Some of the "reviews" were identical, word-for-word. That's the last money I spend on this kind of crap.

      When I first saw television ad for this product it gave me hope that there might be something to help with my tinnitus. I looked it up on internet. Then looked at reviews. Most from people on this forum. My hope was gone again. One thing positive came from my curiosity. On their website I found the ability to find a frequency that matched my tinnitus. Then set the volume, up/down/up/then down till I just couldn't hear it. Arms length away I couldn't hear it but my family in other room got upset by "what is that noise... stop that". Unfortunately they haven't been interested to try to understand what I live with. Thus we live seperately mostly due to the anxiety that I carry. I have found other websites that have similar sound/frequency settings that I can use to ask my long time close friends to try to understand why I am distant. But I say thank you to Quietus for catching my attention years ago. For a shot time I had hope.

      The proper answer would be:

      What you are hearing is the 24/7 noise, similar to the noise I hear inside my head, which never goes away.

      I played it only for a couple minutes and already you want me to stop, because it drives you insane.
      Now imagine not being able to turn it off ever.
      Because unlike yourselves, I don't have that fucking option!!!

      I'm being tortured by sound and you don't even give 2 shits about trying to understand what I must be going through.
      You are not my family, you are bunch of self centered pieces of shit.
