We have read about MDMA-and LSD-assisted psychotherapy, ibogaine therapy and ayahuasca treatment for drug addiction, and medical marijuana (http://www.maps.org), now, tinnitus treatment by way of using MDMA is the next astounding news.
As a side effect of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy numerous tinnitus sufferers have reported improvements. However, naturally these reports are not taken at face value by those not affected. Approved studies are called for and could in fact be undertaken in the near future.
At a conference in New Zealand one researcher said, that “looking at what MDMA did to the brain and also looking at how tinnitus worked, it made sense that there could be a connection”. Still, it is a “mystery” why this is so. About which affected people probably could not care less.
