Meniere’s Disease — Can Anything Help?

Meniere’s Disease — Can Anything Help?

menieres-disease-can-anything-helpMeniere’s disease has been compared to feeling seasick. It is a rare condition, affecting as many as 200 out of 100,000 people. Most people are affected after the age of 40. The vestibular system and the inner ear are the parts of the body that are malfunctioning when it comes to Meniere’s disease. This is connected to the central nervous system, too. It is possible, according to research, that an injury to the head or neck could bring about Meniere’s disease.

Meniere’s can be difficult to diagnose and frustrating to care for. Accompanying symptoms, such as migraines and vertigo, can make it hard to find a way to ease the symptoms. In addition, very few suggested methods actually work for everyone.

Motion Sickness Drugs for Meniere’s Disease?

Drugs intended for motion sickness have been suggested to help those with Meniere’s. This is often one of the first things doctors recommend because they can relieve you of nausea and may be recommended for long periods of time. However, it is now being questioned if this is the best idea. Research is beginning to reveal these drugs may actually hinder the body from healing properly.

Natural Relief for Meniere’s

People are seeking out natural means to care for their health problems, and it is no different with those suffering from Meniere’s disease. Upper cervical chiropractors, such as those here at our office, have seen much success in using a natural, non-invasive method to care for their Meniere’s patients.

It has repeatedly been seen through numerous studies that Meniere’s disease can be connected to a misalignment in the bones of the upper neck vertebrae, particularly the C1. This bone, also called the atlas bone, must be in proper alignment in order for the nervous system to function correctly. A misalignment here can impact the brainstem and cause it to send improper signals to the brain about what is actually happening in the body. A misalignment here also can impact the muscles that connect to the ears, causing fluid to not drain from the inner ears. By realigning the atlas, the body can begin to heal from the damage done.
