Hello everyone.How’s things going?
Recently I had been getting quite a few requests on any news on the Vagus Nerve stimulation procedure.
I am happy to announce that there will be a webinar taking place very soon.
The webinar titled ” Vagus Nerve Stimulation- A new Treatment for Tinnitus,” is presented by the American Tinnitus Association(ATA).
The webinar is scheduled to take place on Thursday the 13th September at 8pm Eastern Standard Time.
There are two deadlines for folks to keep track of to register for this webinar.
If you are an ATA member, the deadline is Friday the 9th September.
For non-members, the deadline for registration is Thursday the 8th September.
The Vagus Nerve
The vagus nerve is the 10th Cranial nerve.It is one of the longest nerves and can stretch its fibers and send impulses to almost every organ in the body.
This nerve is said to play an important role in digestion, preventing inflammation and regulating our heart beats.
What is Vagus Nerve Stimulation and how can it help with Tinnitus?
Stimulation of the vagus nerve via an electrical impulse can shift the brain’s attention to this stimuli.The brain is redirected to this learning taking away its focus from the tinnitus. As a result, one becomes less aware of the ringing in the ears.
If you would like to learn more, check out my full article, “ Vagus Nerve Stimulation and Tinnitus.”

Thanks for stopping by
Until next time, take care of yourself.
Thank you for being here and reaching out to others like myself. I woke up one morning almost 8 yrs ago with severe hearing loss in both ears mostly my right and terrible tinnitus. This was unexplainable and scary. I have learned somewhat to live with it but my hearing seems to be getting worse and the tinnitus louder. ENT Dr, audiologists, primary care physician. No one can explain any of it and worse yet offer no solutions other than hearing aids. It’s just nice to know I’m not alone. I have never looked for, reached out to or met anyone else with tinnitus do it has been very lonely. Again thank you!
You are most welcome. I am happy to help in any way that I can. Trust me you are not alone, there are so many folks out there that are battling with the tinnitus on a day to day basis.
I can relate when you say that your hearing is getting worse. I started to panic in the initial stages, because of the fact that I am permanently deaf in the right ear, the Tinnitus was aggravating my one and only good ear.
As much as I did not want to, I had no choice but to get a hearing aid. Perhaps you can also look into that.
Please feel free to stop by at any time.
