New York, NY – According to recent estimates, American healthcare costs accounted for roughly $3.5 trillion. This figure represents nearly 18 percent of the nation’s gross domestic product. In 1960, healthcare costs only accounted for $27.2 billion and were a mere 5 percent of the national GDP.
There are many different reasons why these costs have been rising. The Journal for the American Medical Association observes that Americans, on average, spend more than twice as much for prescriptions as individuals in other developed nations. Changes in insurance policies, government policies, and prescription practices have all attributed to these rising costs.
While many of these rising costs have gone to treating life-threatening conditions such as cancer, others have been imposed on individuals with much more common medical conditions. Tinnitus is a condition that affects roughly one in eight American adults. Like other common medical ailments, the cost of treating tinnitus through prescriptions is much higher than it was just five years ago.
Pushing the Market Towards Alternative Solutions
Tinnitus is a condition characterized by an ongoing ringing, humming, or roaring in the ears, even when there is no external source of noise available. Tinnitus can make it difficult to focus, remember things, and even fall asleep. According to the University of California, Irvine’sHarrison Lin, “Tinnitus is intimately tied to hearing loss.”
Lin goes on to explain (in an interview with NPR), “You hear a sound—a buzzing, hissing, or a tone—and no one else hears it. It’s generated by something in your brain.” Tinnitus can be caused by exposure to loud noises, stress, ear infections, and various types of heart disease. The solutions, however, have not always been so obvious.
In response to the need for affordable Tinnitus treatment options, the past few years have seen a considerable amount of research. Companies such as Tinnitus 911 have focused on creating natural remedies without the costs or complications of previous prescriptions.
While many of these products position themselves as “alternatives”, they were still created through the use of scientific research. After all, the surest way to create a reliable customer base is to provide solutions that actually work.
Carefully Selecting Ingredients
Tinnitus 911 was created by PhytAge Laboratories, a company that specializes in creating supplements for individuals over 40 years of age. Based out of Austin, TX, PhyTage Labs seeks to promote personal wellness via evidence-based treatment options.
Most tinnitus treatment alternatives feature a wide array of vitamins. Vitamin C and Vitamin B6 are among the most common, but Vitamin B12, Niacin and Folic Acid have also been found to be effective.
Additionally, many of these products also feature different types of berries and other natural ingredients. Garlic, green tea leaves, juniper berries, Hawthorn berries, and hibiscus flowers are just a few of the naturally occurring ingredients that are commonly found.
Tinnitus 911 promotes itself as a “hearing relief formula designed specifically for tinnitus sufferers looking to soothe the central nervous system and provide relief for the ringing or other phantom noises in the ears.”
American pharmaceutical prices may eventually reach their price zenith. But until that day eventually arrives, the supplement industry will continue to expand. According to Grand View Research, the entire supplement industry is supposed to be worth $194.6 billion by 2025. Expect brands like T911 to play a major role in this industry expansion.
