Tinnitus Scam Product #2

The Minot Daily I hope is making a lot of money selling space to these people for these ads. As I have noted before there is a product that is "homeopathic" that is suppose to cure this problem. This time the Minot Daily has given them a 1/2 a page. Same BS (basic speculation) as before and nothing new. Tinnitus is a condition where there is a constant ringing or more actually buzzing, like chirping of thousands of locusts, in the ear. This is usually secondary to sound injury to the inner ear. There is no known cure. One can cover it up with white noise, like the little water fall that are sold and you can put one at your bed side. Homeopathy is pure bunk. NO evidence that it works, scientific evidence that is. And nothing new. One interesting point is that all alternative medicine never offers new treatments or research on their favorite theories. Modern scientific medicine has changed and gotten better in the 150 years of its existence. So called Chinese Traditional Medicine, acupuncture and the like, has been around for a lot longer and homeopathy has been around since the 1700's and they consistently haven't improved on anything.
