Your Tinnitus Questions Answered

Hello! So I received the questions from Alex, and here are my answers. I hope you will find it useful:

Question 1

“I’m not actually a man, but I figure tinnitus is a pretty gender neutral affliction ;) My question would be, what’s the best way to get over it?” – Skellie

My answer:

Tinnitus is affecting men a little more often than women. Hearing loss and tinnitus are well connected, and more men than women work in noisy places (construction, industry, musicians) and there also seems to be a slight male overweight in tinnitus cases without noise exposure, also among young people. But lets get back to your question. You will not get rid of it in the sense that a wound will heal or like recovering from a broken bone.

This goes for tinnitus coming from noise or damage to your central nerve system caused by certain drugs and medicines. But there is also the possibility that your tinnitus origins from tension in your neck, jaw, back, or even your muscles in your face. A few very simple but helpful tips:

7 Ways to Pay Less and Get a Better Flight

Why do you never find those cheap tickets? Why do you never get upgraded? This is how you arrive at your next destination with a smile on your face.

1. Book early

Flight Tips
Airline tickets are like Christmas trees: the closer you get to the date, the more expensive they get.

Check prices at 5 different websites and search engines, and order as soon that you have found the price you’re willing to pay.

Don’t wait, prices might change tomorrow.

2. Check the charter flights

If you’re flexible and like to gamble a little, “odd” airlines might have the right deal for you.

Normally, going from London to Istanbul would make you look at ba.com, lastminute.com or expedia.com, but what about checking a few charter websites?

A company like Thomson might just have a flight that suits you, and often they sell tickets at prices way below normal airlines, as they need to fill up the flight.

They already paid for it, and as the departure day gets closer… prices drop.

No. 1 in the series “What everybody ought to know about dating“.

It was a beautiful day. You were walking on the street with a friend, when suddenly you see a gorgeous woman. There was nothing to do, you just had to cross the street and talk to her.

15 Good Practices for Getting a Good Nights Sleep

Many people, all over the world, have trouble falling asleep; they have problems with waking up in the middle of the night, they wake up to early, they don’t feel well-rested when they wake up in the morning, and the list goes on. You don’t want to be one of those people, do you? Here’s a list of 15 things you can do, to improve the quality of your well earned sleep.

1. Wind it down, bro!
Being physically active before going to bed isn’t a very good idea. It stimulates your brain and your blood pressure, making it harder for you to fall asleep!

2. No bedtime coffee
Limit your use of caffeine (coffee, tobacco, chocolate, tea, soft drinks, energy drinks etc.) during the day, and especially before going to bed.

3. Avoid snacks before going to bed
Eating a snack before sleeping is not recommended. It will raise your blood sugar level, and then when it drops, you might wake up and have trouble falling asleep again.

4. Sleep as dark as possible
Even the smallest light in your bedroom can disrupt your sleep drastically, or said in another way:

“If there is even the tiniest bit of light in the room it can disrupt your circadian rhythm and your pineal gland’s production of melatonin and seratonin” – Dr. Joseph Mercola

5. Peeing before sleeping
It’s a really good practice, to go to the bathroom as the last thing on the day, everyday. Waking up in the middle of the night because you have to pee is unbearable.

6. Don’t turn it on!
If you do have to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night, then whatever you do, don’t turn on the lights! As soon as you press that switch, you lose a whole nights production of the sleep aid, melatonin. Continue reading
