The Cause of Internet and TV Addiction?





·          I have more notes than I can publish at the moment. So, instead of leaving you in the dark until I do publish them, I’ve decided to post them here.

·          Notes will be removed when they become moot.



Tight Socks:

“Do not wear shoes, stockings or socks that are tight or restrict blood flow. If your shoes, stockings or socks leave marks or indentations on your feet, they are too tight.”

**Better to arrange levels in a smooth curve if you don’t know which frequencies you are sensitive to?

**dropping a pinch of salt on your tongue after drinking a glass of water

***this will make you tired if done during the day? (e.g. if it is done to reduce histamine levels)

Frequency hearing loss in one ear, hearing hypersensitivity in other ear?:

“If the cause would be damage to the auditory nerve then why does hyperacusis most often show up in patients who have no hearing loss? One possibility is that efferent fibers of the auditory nerve are selectively damaged even though the hair cells that allow us to hear pure tones in an audiometry evaluation remain intact.

     Others believe the central processing unit which processes sound has been altered. Others believe it is a combination of both. These are only theories that have not been proven.”

Juvenile macular degeneration


The IC and hyperacusis, SMR?

“The olivary body sends the auditory signals to the motor system of the ear and may be involved in reflexes. The inferior colliculus is involved in the creation of motor responses [SMR?] to auditory stimuli and the medial geniculate body which is located in the thalamus, serves as a relay station on the way to the auditory cortex. The auditory cortex lies in the temporal lobe, where low frequency sound is discriminated anteriorly, whilst high frequency sound is discriminated posteriorly. The auditory association areas surround the auditory cortex, and it is here that the brain integrates, remembers and analyses various types of sound input - it takes about 10 milliseconds for sound impulses to travel from the outer ear to the auditory cortex.”

Hypovolemia and the IC


Reducing non-ionizing radiation (NIR) from computer monitors:
