Tinnitus Scams – Be leery…

4 Comments »

As with most marketing scams, if there is room to exploit the gullible or take advantage of the desperate, it will surface at a rampant rate.

Tinnitus scams are currently all over the place via internet, radio, baloney infomercials and senseless adverts by way of television.

Tinnitus is the term used to describe “ringing in the ears.” Many people suffer from this condition; to some, it’s a temporary problem and to others, it’s a lifelong ailment.

Many things can cause it, for example: various types of medical conditions, ear infections, even a build up of ear wax, drug side-effects, circulatory issues, aging, albeit the most common cause is from being chronically exposed to loud noise.

Tinnitus from permanent ear damage due to loud noises has yet to be cured, although many of these bogus scams claim to cure such things, they are just out to make quick cash by deception; and these fraudulent folks will stop at nothing to steal your money.

This is not so much of an informative blog post, this is just a warning to the ones who are searching for products that claim miracle cures for tinnitus. Be very leery…

By all means, try lifestyle changes and natural remedies that are free from shams; stay away from aspirin and certain blood thinners that increase ringing of the ears; avoid high decible sounds; experiment with white noise and other soothing background noises (such as air purifiers) to assist you when trying to fall asleep, and so on. But, when you see or read something that sounds too good to be true and has a huge sales pitch behind it, be wary of such things and try to steer clear from bogus products or else you may find yourself minus several dollars along with getting totally duped in the process.

A while back, I noticed numerous, obvious scams and spurious claims while searching for online products that might help my dad’s tinnitus.  Instead of listing them here, I’ll leave it up to anyone who wants to drop down their comments into the comment field – that relates to the falsehoods of miraculous cures for this particular ear condition……

  1. […] vice versa, but they persistently push their “miracle diets” and many other senseless scams. True, a healthy diet may put your levels in optimal range or it may not – depends on the […]

  2. You hit it right on the spot, when talking about this marketing BS that is out there today! There are loads of scams out there and all these quick cures for Tinnitus is one of them! This old saying usually holds true, especially for stuff like this: “if it sounds too good to be true, then it probably isn’t.”

    I just got freaking ripped off! I tried some miracle product from some stupid website and I think it made my damn ear ringing worse! I’m so pissed off right now. I wished I would have did a web search about the tinnitus scams before or seen this page because I may have thought twice about ordering some overpriced garbage!

    @Todd: Yep, there are loads of bogus products out there, which is the main reason I stressed about how people need to be leery when it comes to some of these “miraculous” claims. Just make sure you stay away or go easy on the blood thinners – if possible, and you might want to experiment with “white noise” or other natural, alternative methods if you’re having trouble sleeping. Either way, as you obviously found out, stay away from the miracle pill scams!
