Michael* had always been cautious about his hearing. As a hunter he was aware of the dangers of hearing loss and took more precautions than most to protect himself. But an accident no-one could have anticipated led to the onset of tinnitus and a desperate search for relief.
I love my job as a first-grade teacher. In 30 seconds, my life changed when I had a headache that was unbelievable. Two days later, I found out that I had a sudden hearing loss in the right ear and then the ringing. That loud, annoying ringing in my ears was so hard to take. The doctor put me on steroids and then told me to live with the ringing. I couldn’t stand it. I saw a tinnitus specialist and she suggested Neuromonics. I had to do something.
After nine months of using the Neuromonics Tinnitus Treatment, I got my life back and I am loving my job even more. I find it easier to concentrate at my job and can sleep through the night.
I have control of tinnitus and it does not have control of me!

A trip to the movies nearly derailed Dr. Penico’s career. The film’s volume was unbearable, and two weeks later, the tinnitus set in, leaving Dr. Penico with a career-altering decision. It was either use the Sanctuary™ or think about quitting his job.
For more than 30 years, Patricia Harrington, Au.D., has been treating many types of hearing problems at her practice in Largo, FL (www.calmthenoise.com). Her interest and treatment of tinnitus started in 2009 after seeing more and more reports of tinnitus across the country.
“The underlying audiological issues of tinnitus were just beginning to be understood,” says Harrington. “There so much more research into tinnitus now than just five years ago. It’s a growing field.”
“Even my wife’s voice became painful to me,” said Tave. “I found myself asking her to “shoosh” frequently. That’s not good for a marriage! We’ve been married almost 52 years and want to keep going. It was my wife who prompted me to seek help.”
