The Who - Pete Townshend Uses Alternative Medicine To Help With Tinnitus

The Who star Pete Townshend has turned to all-natural health remedies to help deal with his ongoing hearing issues.

The 67 year old has been suffering with tinnitus, a ringing in the ears, for many years and admits the condition didn't trouble him at first.

He tells U.S. Tv host David Letterman, who also has tinnitus, "For me it started in a delightful way. I used to wake up in the morning and think, 'I can hear the birds singing! I've never been able to hear the birds singing.' It started with peeps and whistles and beeps so it was very much like birds singing."

The rocker later sought medical attention for the problem, and now Townshend reveals he is doing much better after hiring an alternative medicine expert to aid in his recovery.

He says, "Right now I don't have it badly. I have done quite a lot of new age medicine stuff to help me. And a homeopathic teacher, or a homeopathic doctor, helped me a lot with this, so I would recommend that."
