Is there a cure for tinnitus?

Is there a cure for tinnitus? If there is one I will cure myself. What is a cure? TheFreeDictionary.com has one defintion that reads ” Something that corrects or relieves a harmful or disturbing situation.” Using this definition, there seems to be a wide range of possible cures for tinnitus.
