Tinnitus - My Story
My Story of Dealing With Tinnitus
This site is about my personal journey with tinnitus, how I got it, the pain and suffering I went through initially after I got the ringing in my ears from a loud explosion in Sri Lanka in 1992 and how I now deal with it happily.
I’ve written this site as after 14 years of having extreme tinnitus I didn’t think there was enough good information out there for people who have this intolerable ringing in their ears and ways to reduce the sound..
Or at least information written by someone who has extreme tinnitus and can offer ways to deal with it from a personal perspective. Please be strong as there is hope of a total cure for tinnitus in the coming years.
Or at least information written by someone who has extreme tinnitus and can offer ways to deal with it from a personal perspective. The way I deal with extreme Tinnitus works. I’m fully functional as you can see here ( www.SimonHealy.com)
Importantly it’s brought me in contact with a range of new natural treatments and indeed new friends who also have tinnitus and have found their own ways of dealing with it like Canadian concert pianist Paul Tobey who has written “A Practical Guide to Tinnitus Free Living”
The Extremely Loud Sound of My Tinnitus!!! For real.
You can understand how that noise could have easily turned me into a headcase …… and why I needed to find ways to deal with this extreme noise. This site offers mostly free ways to do so plus very inexpensive ways such as Paul Tobey’s “A Practical Guide to Tinnitus Free Living“..
My name is Simon Healy and you’ll find information on this site that will offer you ways to not only relieve the ringing but in some cases permanently reduce it so you hardly notice it. I am the Managing Director of a medium sized outsourcing firm called OutsourcingTo.uS as well as the CEO of a non profit organisation that works primarily in Asia building and managing telecentre ’schools’ for disadvantaged youth called OrphanIT.org
My Personal Tinnitus Story - “How It Happened” - Asia 1992 - Festival in Sri Lanka. Boy throws huge firecracker which landed next to my head and blew my eardrum causing an extremely loud and constant ringing in my ears (Tinnitus) which I’ve now had for 14 years.
Very few people aside from my close friends even know I have Extreme Tinnitus because quite frankly most people who don’t have it don’t understand it. The explosion that happened in 1992 changed my life irrevocably for the worse initially and later for the better when I came to grips with it.
In fact I doubt I’d have the wonderful life I now have if the accident had not happened.
I am lucky enough to live in a rainforest jungle in Byron Bay in Australia (seriously) and the noise outside my house is a cacaphony of cicadas, crickets, dozens of birds and ocean waves crashing in all day and night. I actually moved here because of my tinnitus in order to mask the sounds ….and it works like a dream. The important thing to remember is that even though I was close to total despair after a few years of living with Tinnitus I came to grips with it and turned the extrordinarily loud ringing in my ears into positive in my life.
I am currently the CEO of 2 successful businesses - One a ‘For Profit and the other a Non Profit or Social Business NGO’
My commercial business is called OutsourcingTo.uS and provides online marketing services for 100’s of clients in Australia and worldwide. My non profit foundation is called OrphanIT.org and it is a multi award winning international NGO which provides sustainable solutions to other non profit (primarily telecentres) worldwide.
Our NGO has raised and implemented programs that have assisted several thousand youth in developing nations helping them achieve a better standard of living for themselves and their families. We’ve been reviewed in the Harvard Business Review, won international awards like the GKP Youth Awards, the Stockholm Challenge and The Global Junior Challenge which resulted in a scholarship to Santa Clara and Stanford Universities in the USA.
I’ve recently sold my education business which provided marketing services for several hundred universities and colleges in 15 countries. (See www.HyperStudy.com and www.EdMedia.info ) so now have more time to develop my own business, writing, travelling, working on www.OrphanIT.org and the new Youth Fund I’ve helped launch with some colleagues in Asia called www.YSEI.org
At the moment I’m writing a book about my experiences which I’m going to release in early 2008 called “Dealing With Extreme Tinnitus”. I’ve found for me THE most effective way of dealing with Tinnitus is to keep focused on what I’m passionate about in my life.
I’m also intending on making this site into the number one resource on the web for tinnitus patients with loads of information about treatments, forums, specialized masking consulting and ways you can overcome the terrible ringing in your ears.
If you sign up to my monthly newsletter you’ll receive regular updates from the book before it’s published. I’m also planning a series of short clips for YouTube which I’ll be releasing over 2008. I worked in film, TV and theatre for 10 years so I’m confident these clips will be of real value to Tinnitus sufferers worldwide.
They’ll be available in multiple languages and my objective is to offer you with relief, the right attitude and self help therapy to deal with your Tinnitus.
Paul Tobey’s powerful tinnitus healing methods.
This is my number one recommendation for healing tinnitus. It’s very similar to how I personally have found ways to deal with my extreme tinnitus but Paul has gone one steps further and put it into a package you can use right now to help you.
Paul’s two tinnitus relief programs for example will absolutely change forever the way you deal with your Tinnitus. Remember I know about treatments as I’ve been researching them for almost 14 years since I got the extremely loud ringing in my ears in an explosion in Asia and his eBook and audio seminar have done wonders giving me relief and healing just over the last few months.
His original healing product is called “A Practical Guide to Tinnitus Free Living“. This is an eBook and audio recording in which he shares some practical and truly enlightening information on how to live a 100% Tinnitus-Free Life.
Tinnitus cures and reduce ringing in ears I highly recommend his easy to use methods. Paul is a Canadian concert pianist, composer, entertainer, motivational speaker and former tinnitus sufferer himself.
I was almost in tears of joy when I finished reading his book the 1st time because I just wished I had this information so many years, anxious days and sleepless nights ago.
I spoke for a few hours with Paul on Skype in early March 2007 to understand more about his methods and he really does have a great system with some very easy to use ways to get rid of your tinnitus or at least make it A LOT easier to deal with. He’s an extremely inspirational and personable guy.
One thing that really stuck out in my conversation with Paul was his philosophy of focusing on what you want spiritually, mentally and emotionally and how the physical changes will follow. This is a guy who’s just walked over 800 kilometres on a trek through Spain over 60 days. Paul filmed about 60 hours of footage along the Camino de Santiago for one of his documentary projects. This was a journey of personal development for Paul and when you read his eBook you will see the sheer simplicity and beauty of Paul’s methods of dealing with Tinnitus.
