White noise is interrelated with white light in that is is made of all of the frequencies and sound wavelengths in the sound range. It's an extremely calming sound and is called a flat noise. To better understand white noise, it basically joins with other sounds but does not change when a human ear hears it. Some say that it sounds like a gushing waterfall or a sound of a fan. This will help folks sleep deeper particularly those that are distracted by noises outside their houses like barking dogs or perhaps loud neighbors. When somebody is sleeping or trying to sleep, the barking sound of dogs isn't recognized any more. Do you suspect this is unbelievable? Well, it's correct and is proved by systematic studies. And white noise is also used as treatment for those that have tinnitus and colic. And sound machines are recommended to help babies sleep and stop it from crying. Some noises that don't cause tinnitus in one person could cause severe tinnitus in another.
This could be a transient condition and leave as fast as the stress is relieved. Relieving stress regardless of what the reason for tinnitus can ease the suffering associated with the annoying noise in your ears.
