Misophonia, which literally means "hatred of sounds," there is no known specific cure for misophonia. Tinnitus retraining therapy (TRT) entails teaching people with misophonia how to improve their ability to tolerate certain noises. Cognitive behavioral therapy involves changing the negative thoughts that may contribute to the person's suffering. Another treatment involves adding background noise to the person's environment in an effort to help them ignore their triggers for negative reactions.
