Natural Meniere’s Treatment in Glen Carbon, IL
When a person has Meniere’s, the room may seem to spin from time to time. Other symptoms include a severe form of tinnitus, which is a ringing in the ears, a feeling that the ear is full, and even the potential for short-term or permanent hearing loss. It is a disorder of inner ear function.
What causes this condition? One idea is that it is based on fluid volume inside the inner ear. There are sensors inside the ear, hair-like in nature, that rely on the volume and pressure of this fluid. That makes the delicate balance of inner ear pressure and fluid volume a vital part of the Vestibular system which is in charge of body balance and spatial orientation.
What can cause a problem with inner ear fluid?
- Traumatic head injury
- Drainage problems such as a blockage
- Viral infection
- Vestibular migraines
- Genetics – predisposed to a buildup of fluid
- Autoimmune problems
When a person has Meniere’s, they may find that certain things lead to an episode. Some of these recognized triggers are salt, alcohol, caffeine, tobacco, and anything the person may be allergic to.
Is there a natural means of treatment that can provide lasting relief from Meniere’s disease?
