About
Meniere's Disease affects the inner ear and is evidenced by tinnitus (buzzing or ringing of the ears), dizziness or vertigo, imbalance, hearing loss, or pressure. It may be linked to swollen chambers in the inner ear.


Notes
  • Make sure you are taking supplements for overall good health. If you are not taking these basic supplements, we recommend Enfuz from Vitabase. When you take a small packet of pills each day, you get all the basic nutrition you need. Each packet contains a multi-vitamin, CoQ10 (for heart health), Omega 3, Vitamin D-3, a probiotic, and a powerful set of antioxidants to help your body fight off disease.
  • Eat a low carbohydrate and high protein diet with this disorder most people have a high blood insulin level, which weakens circulation.
  • If the disease is taking away your daily life you may need to consider surgery.
  • Prescription drugs are most often used in fighting vertigo and nausea.


Advice
  • For 2 weeks you need to try a hypoglycemic diet.
  • Omit salt sugar, MSG, Alcohol, fried foods, fats, and caffeine.
  • Reduce stress.
