So far, individual observations suggest that WBC may improve the symptoms of tinnitus. These observations are confirmed by the results of a more detailed study, which can be found below.

In a clinical study involving a group of 80 tinnitus patients (39 bilateral, 20 right-sided, 15 left-sided, and 6 with “tinnitus in the head”) with a duration of symptoms ranging from one month to 23 years (WBC −110°C in two series with a total of 10 exposures of 3 min each), the following results were obtained (according to patient information and audiometric control): in four patients, the tinnitus was completely eliminated; in 47, the intensity was reduced; in 16, a slight improvement was noticed; and in 13 patients, the findings were unchanged. Audiometric analysis revealed a frequency change of the tinnitus in 138 ears and a change in the intensity in 91 ears. A reduction of hearing loss could be detected.

The indication lists for some cryotherapy centers identify even more diseases which can not be referred to here by the author as being treatable by cold for lack of personal experience.


The information on this page is inspired by the book "Power from the Cold" by Prof. Papenfuß. The author states explicitly in his book that the descriptions in his book (and on this page) are not in any way intended to act as a substitute for the careful clinical indication process and the observation of strict safety measures developed in individual cryotherapy centres, or as a substitute for the indication of whole body cryotherapy in combination with other treatments.
