My name is Wim van de Ven and I am 59 years old. In March 2014 after having done a job at home (drilling in a wall) I got a high pitched tinnitus for the first time in my life.
It was a terrifying and horrible experience. It went away for a few months but the tinnitus came back in september 2014. I visited 5 ENT doctors in The Netherlands and Germany since then and tried several therapies at high costs but without any results at all. The only thing they ENT doctors did was to make an audiogram. This showed hearing loss especially on the left side and for the most in the high frequency. I was told there was nothing I could about it and I had a terrible time since then.
In August 2015, searching again on the Internet for a therapy, I red by coincidence about low level laser therapy for tinnitus performed by Dr Wilden.
I started reading on the websites of Dr Wilden and what I red was logical and matched with my personal experiences. I contacted Dr Wilden and send in my audiogram. He advised me to start as soon as possible with the home laser he has developed.
End of August 2015 I started using the home laser. In January 2016 I also went to Ibiza for a treatment with high dosage low level laser therapy by Dr Wilden in his practice. Since I started with the home laser in August 2015 my situation is improving slowly but steady.
Dr Wilden was honest from the beginning that the treatment can take a long time (at least a year and maybe more) to come to a good final result. I understand the severity of damage to the hearing cells and I accept this long time of treatment. The most important is the improvement of the tinnitus and also of the hearing capability as I noticed this since August 2015.
The use of the home laser is easy and pleasant. My wife also uses it for improving her hearing and preventing problems like tinnitus. My daughter uses it for her skin problems with eczema. I will continue the use of the home leaser and will also combine it in May 2016 with another treatment by Dr Wilden in his practice. The combination of both treatments is the most effective to my experience. Although the home laser is the most important.
As I told before have tried several therapies without any results and I have heard several totally different and unlogical explanations from doctors what the causes of tinnitus are.
The analysis of Dr Wilden about the inner ear is logical and well documented and matches with my personal experiences with tinnitus. The low level laser therapy aims at the recovery of the inner ear cells and the effectiveness of this therapy is supported by very recent scientific research I have red from Harvard University in the VS and Dankook University in Korea.
And by my personal experience. I can only recommend strongly to try this therapy of Dr Wilden if you suffer form hearing loss, tinnitus, hyperacusis and other inner ear disorders.
