Meniere's Disease

Remedies for Meniere's Disease
Typically, an attack is characterised by a combination of vertigo, tinnitus and hearing loss and lasts several hours.  These symptoms have a tendency to vary in frequency, duration and intensity. 
Some people feel nauseated and vomit during an attack (because of the spinning feeling). Hearing loss is common, especially with sounds that have a low tone. Slight vertigo (loss of balance) may occur a few times a year. Others may be occasionally disturbed by intense, uncontrollable tinnitus, (ringing in the ear) while sleeping. Other Meniere's disease sufferers may notice a fluctuating hearing loss and feel unsteady all day long for prolonged periods. Many of these attacks have a sudden onset with no warning making it difficult to be prepared and attacks can be frightening for anyone around the sufferer.

The vertigo and dizziness are described as a spinning or whirling feeling and may cause problems with balance (feeling unstable while walking). Dizziness is not quite the same as vertigo. Dizziness is more like lightheadedness. It's not nearly as severe in its balance problems as is vertigo. Vertigo, often the most debilitating symptom of Meniere's disease, forces the sufferer to lie down. Vertigo attacks can lead to severe nausea, vomiting, and sweating; again, these can come with little or no warning. 

Tinnitus, (ringing or a roaring sound in the ear), causes great frustration. The person can't hear above the internal noise and can often feel left out of conversations and activities. Moreover the noise itself is very irritating which can cause stress.  Tinnitus can be a very difficult problem to treat in many individuals.

Loss of hearing causes many of the same problems as tinnitus along with additional issues. The first stage of hearing loss affects the ability to hear low voices and tones, as it progresses, less and less is heard. This can lead to depression and a feeling of abandonment – issues that friends and family should be aware of.  Not only is the person himself feeling emotional and physical pain, but may feel that they are also placing extra burden on the family; this in itself can lead to more depression. A person's hearing tends to recover between attacks but over time the symptoms become worse.     People also mention a feeling of fullness or pressure in the ear, (or popping, buzzing, or clicking). 

Other occasional symptoms of Meniere's disease include headaches, abdominal discomfort, and diarrhea. People talk about feeling extreme fatigue and exhaustion, nausea, & vomiting, the inability to concentrate, distraction, poor memory, confusion, and disorientation. We hear about extreme sensitivity to noise, light sensitivity, headaches, and night blindness. There are complaints of muscle and joint pain, and malaise due to atmospheric pressure changes. Because of these uncontrollable and depressing attacks, some people experience panic attacks.
Success in treating Menieres disease involves the use of an anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant and a calcium formulation.  In our opinion Meniere's disease has an auto-immune aspect as displayed by the alleviation of symptoms with anti-inflammatory products. In this respect we would therefore recommend Plant Sterols and Sterolins.  These anti-inflammatory vegetable fats are largely deficient in our diet and have been the subject of clinical trials on a number of auto-immune disorders with a high success rate; at the same time they are successful in reducing inflammation.   Plant Sterols and Sterolins may be grown at home – see our Sprouting Article, or purchased as a synergistic blend of young shoots of seeds and beans, freeze dried with all live enzymes intact. 
We recommend that the sufferer of Meniere's disease follow the combination of remedies outlined in the article Factors Involved In Auto-Immune Disorders And Effective, Natural Treatment Protocols. These remedies include other anti-inflammatory nutritional aspects that are relieved by essential fatty acids such as Hemp Oil and enzymes including Serrapeptase.
Zell-Oxygen a live cell nutritional yeast is particularly recommended to improve the immune system and encourage systemic healing; it also has detoxification and anti-oxidant effects. A Calcium supplement can be obtained in full, food state form with balancing electrolyte minerals and trace elements including Boron in our product Capra Mineral Whey with Boron.   Improving the circulation to the head /inner ear area can be facilitated with the use of Circulate Capsules, this combination of herbs aids circulation to the head and have been used in treatment protocols to alleviate Meniere’s disease.

Removal of Blocks to Health, Healing and Wellness

We have defined the major blocks to health improvement which should be considered the number one priority for resolution before one goes on to a more specific healing regimen such as that detailed in the programme above. By removing these blocks one will feel stronger and more prepared for a specific programme and will achieve far greater success with it. Please read this essential article here

The Autoimmune Protocol

Not all of the remedies listed here will neccessarily be needed. We strive to bring you the most effective remedies to resolve your health problems in the simplest supplemental regime possible. We aim to treat the actual root causes of health problems holistically rather than supply remedies that will give temporary or partial relief from only the symptoms. This has been our mission since the founding of Regenerative Nutrition in 1994. As we uncover more fundamental truths about the causes, and therefore the relief, of diseases and health problems we update and revise our product range and recommendations.

Above, we detail targeted remedy recommendations for Meniere's Disease, but we further suggest that you view the autoimune protocol article and supplement pages by clicking here

To achieve overall good health and long term resolution of this health problem the remedies selected here should be combined with the autoimmune protocol remedies for the best results.

It may well be that there is some overlap and that many of the remedies in the autoimmune protocol are listed here also.
