I suffered with tinnitus and anxiety about it for a couple of years. I tried all the magic pills and sound machines (to mask the ringing) to no avail. My doctor told me nothing could be done and that I had to learn to live with it. When I got that bad news my anxiety levels went through the roof. The online forums on tinnitus didn’t help matters with their less than rosy outlook on the condition.
Then one day I read how acupuncture might help. I started looking for acupuncturists on the internet and I found Acupuncture of Morris County and David Karlovich. I was skeptical at first but I figured I had nothing to lose. I met with David and he explained the general theory of acupuncture and how it might help me. David didn’t make any guarantees but he felt confident he could help me and I got a sense that he really cared and was very passionate about helping me so I decided to give it a try.
I started my twice a week treatments and about a month later I noticed my tinnitus wasn’t as intense and realized that I felt less anxious with an enhanced sense of overall well-being. After 12 treatments I realized I no longer needed treatment. My tinnitus had diminished significantly to the point where there are days that I don’t even notice it. I have to concentrate on it to hear it.
As far as anxiety, I feel better today than I did before I had tinnitus. As David said my tinnitus might have been a blessing in disguise. David not only gave me my life back he made it better than ever.
David is very caring, he takes the time to talk with you and more importantly he listens to what you have to say. He goes above and beyond what I expected from him. After treatments David would email or call me to see how I felt. I not only consider David my acupuncturist I consider him a friend.
