Hey Precious, How are your new T distractors working for you? My self treatments are still doing well. My treatments are the demag, suppliments, no diet pop or artifical sweeteners, reading and studying inspirational literature. All details and progress in my journals. Please let us know how your distractors are working for you. Thanks.

Hi prec3,

Many run into Arches, specifically, as it's one of the most aggressively marketed T products online but I've not personally known anyone to benefit from it.

Not arches specifically, but many such companies know it pays to be in the top results on google, and are usually just buisiness oriented (looking for some extra bucks), not scientific establishments who've ever researched tinnitus. They put their efforts and funds into marketing, not research.

I'm wishing you very well with the Distractors, please let us know how they work for you whenever you can. Thanks a bunch.

I have tryed several supplements - lipoflavoid, sonarx, ginko,... and found no benefit from these for my T. I do get an email newsletter from Arches Tinnitus Relief and it does have some good information.
I've been a regular on this site for about a year now and have not come across anyone who has benefitted from these types of products.

Thanks for the info on Arches. I should have waited 1 more day to order. I ordered the B-12 lozenges and T Relief Formula. As far as the distractor, I like it except it really does not drown out the T but when the noise is really bad, the softer noise helps and it fits in ear. It comes with several tips to fit ears. What are we going to do??

I realize that nothing works for everybody but I had real success with Arches Tinnitus Relief Formula but it did take time to work... almost 3 months. I was prepared for that though - since they told me that on their website. So you may have some success Precious but they say you need to try 4 bottles to be able to determine total effectiveness. Hope it works for you too.

Without directing comments specifically:

Unscrupulous people with commercial interest in products frequently drop into internet threads posing as sufferers to say "it worked for me, you just need to buy more".

The red flag is always the same: No one recognizes them.

The poster has no friends on their DS friends list, no pictures, no hugs, no comments on other threads, no comments on others' pictures, they refer to the product in full commercial name with capitals per each word and post their "it worked for me" message on or around the same day they joined.

The ATA does not acknowledge Arches as a viable treatment. Incidentally, their research department is available mon-fri (800) 634-8978

Well I am a real person and I came across your group on a tinnitus search. My mistake.

TallG,
I've been a regular on this site for about a year. There have been a few success stories about certain products and devices that have seemed suspicious - mostly under the profile that Snowrider described.

Welcome to the group. I hope you stay with us. I'm glad you've had success with the Arches Tinnitus Relief. Do you have to continue taking this after several months?

Again, please understand and pardon our suspicions.

Thanks JohnK for the support. I've never done this before and not to sure of all the proper protocols.

To answer your question, yes unfortunately i have to keep taking it. It is a maintenance program otherwise they'd have something of "cure." For me my T went down by at least half, after a few months - still some days are better that others. I tried stopping once and the noise went back to previous levels. A buddy of mine tried it (on my suggestion) with no success, but to their credit they told him it doesn't work for everybody - but he tried 4 bottles anyway (their recommendation) .

Me, I'm in my 56 and got T over time playing in rock bands in my youth and standing way to close to the speakers - mine and others. It got progressively worse as I aged to the point of insanity. It much better now - can at least get to sleep easier, though I had kiss a few frogs before I found results from Arches. But that's me.

Welcom TallG, as mentioned I don't mean to imply you specifically. Just a note of caution as, yet again, another success story comes from someone no one here recognizes. And in this case, one of the more comical products so forgive my suspicion.

I've been researching T online since 2002 and it's unfortunately very common for someone to pop in, say "it works for me" then disappear. They create a story behind the cause of their T, feild a few questions, then vacate.

As Google heavily indexes these DS threads, product reps join and post to balance the reputation of a disfavorable and/or known to be useless product so again, please know I don't mean you specifically and will be looking for your journals and fun photos of your pets soon ;)

I appreciate your comments SnowRider, though I take exception to your calling the product "comical." For me there is nothing "comical" about it nor my tinnitus. I am thankful it worked for me and was just hoping to share my experience specific to this discussion based.

This has been an illuminating experience for me. In the future I will be more circumspect before jumping into a group without knowing more about it. I hale from a generation taught not to give out personal info that anyone can access without real good cause. So as for these journals and pets (I don't have any) etc, I think I'll just take a step back. It was not my intention to create any hubbub - just honestly answer a question asked by Precious.

I wish you all well and hope you find something positive that helps.

I see people talking about T distractors. What is that? Also, I am going to order that Arches stuff for my husband. His ENT gave him info on it, so I figured we would give it a try. He promised to try it for at least 4 months before giving up. We are new to this Tinnitus world. My husband had a mild case from years of working in a loud factory but it got super duper bad after he went shooting guns with our son. Apparently, he didn't wear proper ear protection or something.

If this is how one gets tinnitus, then how in the world are our young people going to do after listening to loud music all of the time?

I am so thankful for this website.

I apologize in advance if this sounds commercial, but I do believe I have something to add here. I am an ENT specialist who has suffered (and still do) from very loud T. After MUCH research I felt that the nutritional supplement route was the only way I was willing to go in terms of long term therapy. No prescription drugs for me. There are a reasonable number of people who can be helped by these supplements but not all will have a good result. You must accept that up front. The major problem with many of the supplements on the market today is that they make promises they cannot keep and they are very overpriced. Quality supplements should not be that expensive. You shouldn't have to spend hundreds of dollars to find out if it will work for you. I have brought a product to market and again, I apologize if this sounds commercial. I take it myself and wouldn't give it up for anything. It has made my life enjoyable again. I have tried to keep the price reasonable because frankly this is simply a sideline for me. I realize how stressful T can be. I don't want to offend anyone so I won't give out any more info here. If enough people want me to give the name of my site I will as long as it doesn't break any rules on the forum.

Hi ENT Doc

Welcome. I was very interested to hear that as a medical professional you are now achieving some relief with Arches. Since the medical community has so far been unable to find a cure, you must be very excited to be able to recommend this to your patients.

I showed your post to my ENT consultant here in London and she is very keen to discuss this with you. Obviously you won't want to divulge your medical and contact details via this board, but can I assume you will be happy to speak to my ENT? doctor - to - doctor so that she may investigate this further in the UK?

Thanks - Jason
