List of tinnitus versus scenar participants PDF Print E-mail

This is a list of everybody who has visited me for treatment, or who I have visited, or bought a scenar and bought ZAST for self treatment at home. This list shall be updated regularly. I will not be displaying people's names unless they want me to.

 

There have been a number of problems since the inception of this procedure, but mistakes are to be expected at the beginnings of such things. So please note that unless the following conditions have been met it is unlikely to be the case that there are positive results.

 

i. a range of frequencies is applied. The necessity of which was recognised in Jan 08. 

 

ii. a suitable priming treatment using a probe like Z1, is applied for a few sessions before actual application of probe Z2 (as outlined in "Z1 treatment" of ZAST) This is the stage that I went through whilst experimenting, between Aug and Oct 07 as mentioned in "my story",  but I did not recognise its necessity until around May 08.

 

iii. a suitable Z2 probe is used to apply "Z2 treatment". Although the first (Z2a) and third (Z2c) worked, they were uncomfortable, the second (Z2b) worked OK and was quite comfortable but I could not reproduce it. The forth (Z2d) did not work due to an error I made, but the fifth (Z2e) worked fine. Inferior previous probes have had a strong negative impact on the results in my opinion. The fifth and only truely satisfactory probe was made in Oct 08 and should be the standard for the foreseeable future.

 

Z1 treatment involves using a small probe to stimulate the area around the top of the ear canal; this is repeated around the bottom of the ear canal. I believe this is necessary to free up movement of the nerve fibres, permitting the signal from Z2 to travel with fluidity and without pain. It does seem however that the younger the patient the less need there is for this stage, see here

 

Z2 treatment involves forming a circuit around the middle/inner ear area by putting opposing electrodes on either side of the ear canal, see here.

 Z2aApplied single frequency using only Z2 treatment. Patient found it painful. Patient stayed for 2 days, but the barrier was pain, this was frustrating. Today patient is still in contact and attempting self treatment with ZAST.

Applied variety of frequencies using Z1 treatment, not yet reached Z2 treatment. Unfortunately patient has a number of persistent ear complaints (not related to scenar) and said they wanted to return when they have receded. However, patient stopped coming after 4 sessions. This is a local person.

Applied Raetzel technique twice, but he found some of it uncomfortable, also applied ZAST, got tinnitus reduction during treatment, but tinnitus had returned at the next session. Stopped coming after 3 sessions. This is a local person.

Applied all known useful techniques to date twice a day for 7 days and then once a day for a further 3 days, got no tinnitus reduction (too much treatment too soon perhaps), however has a chronic case, but will continue self treatment. Same as No.42 in table below.

ii
Applied all known useful techniques to date twice a day for 5 days and then once a day for a further 3 days, got no tinnitus reduction (too much treatment too soon perhaps), however a reaction to the Z2 probe caused difficulties, they had a chronic case, but will continue self treatment. Same as No.43 in table below.

Patient made no further contact after purchasing, and I have no information to go on. I assume it didn't work, but the probe was uncomfortable and he may have given up quickly after deciding he didn't like it.

i, ii, Z2c, Z2d, Z2e
Patient reported positive results within a couple of weeks and continued success even though using Z2c. Patient got no results with Z2d, as expected and is now underway with Z2e (as of Nov 08). Many zeffles have been felt and significant tinnitus reduction has been experienced.
004UK 35-50June 08
i, ii, Z2c, Z2d, Z2e

Same patient as No.3 in previous table. 

Today patient is still in regular contact and attempting self treatment with ZAST, new probes (as of Nov 08) and own device. No result, as yet, this may be due to his lack of application of Z1 treatment, the importance of which is becoming more apparent for some users.

Friend who already owned device wants to experiment with procedure to attampt to remove minor tinnitus and minor hearing loss. His probes arrive Dec 08. ZAST no. reserved for him for comedic (James Bond related) value.

i, ii, Z2c, Z2d
Patient made little contact after purchasing, and I have no information to go on. I assume it didn't work, but again the probe was uncomfortable and he may have given up quickly, then I sent a probe which didn't work, which possibly confirmed to him that it was a waste of time. I shall attempt further contact.

Patient found first probe uncomfortable, but did work with it. He found treatment painful, but I then found that he hadn't applied Z1 treatment, and wasn't working according to the instructions. He gave up but has recently decided to try again with latest probe, received Nov 08.

Two other people have reported tinnitus reduction after visiting local scenar practitioners, and receiving a standard scenar therapy technique, see my news articles and check threads at RNID, yuku, and daily strength forums for further information.
