Tinnitus Symptoms & White noise
White Noise & Tinnitus Symptoms
Most people have heard of Tinnitus and in fact millions are familiar with Tinnitus Symptoms at some time or other. How many people though have heard of Tinnitus relief through the application of white noise ? Or indeed used white noise as a tinnitus treatment ? I would dare to say, perhaps not too many !
What is ‘white noise’ ?
White noise is made up by producing sounds of different frequencies, and mixing them together to form a consistent sound. If you add all the different frequencies that the human ear can pick up and shove them in a mixer, then you would have ‘white noise’.
To give a better ‘mind picture’, just imagine that white light is in fact made up from many different colors in the spectrum, a rainbow for instance separates the light back into it’s component colors. In this same way, white sound combines all the different frequencies or sounds to produce just one continuous background noise.
Remember the old style analogue TV sets, when at night the program finished and you had the snow effect on the screen with a continuous ssshhhhhh noise ? that was white noise. Just think Steven Spielberg and the Poltergeist movie scary stuff !
Tinnitus relief through white noise?
The concept of getting tinnitus relief through distracting the brain is not new, in fact it is probably one of the oldest techniques around for ‘curing’ tinnitus. Many tinnitus sufferers have had to cope with tinnitus by playing the radio, especially at bed-time in order to get some sleep. The constant background noise helps to distract the brain from the noise in their ears.
Whilst this may help a little, it is not so good for the partner lying next to them for whom the noise may in fact keep them awake ! However, not to be too negative it must be said that it can be quite effective at drowning out the sound of tinnitus.
A simple way of testing the efficacy of white noise against tinnitus, is to turn on a fan. This is often enough to distract the brain away, and can offer some tinnitus relief.
Tinnitus relief through noise ?
Here is another way to approach it. Say for instance there are a couple of people speaking in a group; you may be able to hear the overall conversation quite easily. What if we increase that to a crowd of 50 people ? This would change the whole scenario and you would find that instead of a conversation that you could follow, you would just have a constant noise with no real focus to it. This is an approximation of white noise.
