THIS WEEK’S TIP:YOU CAN LIVE WELL WITH TINNITUS!
It’s always daunting for people to hear that tinnitus does not have a cure, but there are ways to manage and live well with tinnitus, without any suffering or stress. However, there is often a lot of misguided information out there. On this week’s TIP, Adam Shulberg talks about the importance of seeking out help from professionals and programmes that understand the biopsychosocial nature of tinnitus.
You don’t have to go very far to see that lifestyle practices like mindfulness and meditation are becoming more and more popular for the management of tinnitus, hearing loss and in western medical science in general.

We were really pleased to see this article in the Guardian discussing cognitive therapy and mindfulness as effective tools for the management of tinnitus.
The article discusses the use of mindfulness-based cognitive therapy as a tool for people experiencing tinnitus, helping them to learn how to accept and live well with tinnitus, rather than fighting and pushing it away.

We talk about tinnitus a lot and that is because tinnitus is one of the most prevalent symptoms that humanity faces and it often causes increased levels of unhealthy psychological distress in those who experience it.
It sounds daunting to people to hear that tinnitus does not have a cure, but there are ways to manage and live well with tinnitus, without any suffering or stress. At Cubex, and with the guidance of the British Tinnitus Association, we utilise mindfulness and meditation practices to learn to live with tinnitus in a positive and calm way.

We wanted to share an article written by The Telegraph about the current state of mental health and ways you can look to improve your mental health. One in 10 teenage girls are being referred to NHS specialist mental health services and one in three GP sick notes are for mental health reasons, but we are now in a time of great change for mental health.
There is a much greater awareness of mental health and whilst the health industry is much better equipped to help those suffering, the article discusses putting some of the onus back onto self-care regimes.
At the last Just Breathe London Grand Gathering, Mr Adam Shulberg, Managing Director and Senior Audiologist from Cubex spoke about hearing, cognition and the health precautions we should all consider now to ensure our long term cognitive well-being.
Cubex recently started the UK’s first Mindfulness Based Auditory Cognitive Treatment Pathway to support individuals experiencing reduced hearing ability, tinnitus and cognitive fatigue. In addition to bringing mindfulness into the clinical environment we also partnered with the UK’s first Modern Mindfulness & Mass Meditation community, Just Breathe London to create a space to breath & positively affect the cultural fabric and cognitive health of our city. It provides a place for community, connection & culture with the vision to create an oasis of space amidst London’s hustle and bustle.
At each event real world relevance of a mindful way of living is shared. At each and every Grand Gathering, our community of experts in the medical, health & well being sector share some wise words.
According to an international study in the Lancet, one in three cases of dementia could be prevented if more people looked after their brain health throughout life.
It is currently estimated that 47 million people are living with Dementia at the moment. By 2050, This number could reach 131 million people globally.
The study explores the lifestyle factors that play a major role in reducing the risk of dementia and examines the benefits of building a “cognitive reserve”, which means strengthening the brain’s networks so it can continue to function in later life despite damage.
