Blood Pressure and Meniere's Disease

This new section of our Meniere's disease website pulls together articles and links concerning blood pressure. This body function plays an enormous role in anyone's health. We hear number tossed out as the "normal values". Everyone seems to have an opinion. That usually turns into a "treatment plan" related to foods to eat, to stay way from: pills to take or to avoid.


Even exercise and lifestyle choices are involved. In some cases you are trying to increase the blood pressure and in other cases you want to decrease it. But what does it all really mean? We are all a part of nature.. so I want to use an image to help you understand what happens to water (your blood) flowing in a field (your body). Then maybe you can see how blood pressure is "experienced" in your body and how it can relate to Meniere's disease.


Picture a field of green grass. Water is flowing through it nicely. It has all the nutrients it needs and the right amount of water to keep everything in good order. To make any change to this idyllic scene, one of two things have to happen. (Many other changes occur, but for now let's stick with this.) Either the water level increases ( increased pressure) or it decreases. No matter which one happens, everything now is affected. Nothing stays the same. If the field floods, it is like hypertension (high blood pressure). If it dries out, it is like hypotension (low blood pressure). Even the shift itself, can cause symptoms!


With Meniere's disease, we are often told that one part of the body is not related to another: that what happens in the inner ear can't possibly be connected to anything going on in the brain (as an example). How can that be?


Like the grassy field, it is your right to feel "normal". See yourself as one gigantic cell made up of nine different main parts with all sorts of subsections, but still they are all related. So what you do in one cell does has an effect on every other cell. I am sure you have heard that one tiny pebble tossed into the ocean has a ripple effect all over the world. So each action in any cell, has some effect on your entire body. Check out the new section and understand how to measure blood pressure or find good links to other sites, or wade into the salt/sodium debate!


Prevent Blood Pressure Pitfalls - There Can Be A Link Between Meniere's Disease and High Blood Pressure.

Meniere's Disease and high blood pressure could be connected. The dizzy spells, nausea, vertigo, hearing loss and inner ear dizziness may be a result of increasing, or already high blood pressure, interacting with your Meniere's Disease symptoms.  It is important to understand the links between your bodies physiology and how high blood pressure could put a strain on the various systems leading to additional problems.


Could Your Blood Pressure Be Too Low? A Plea For Some Common Sense and Some Sanity


Salt And Potassium: Keeping A Healthy Balance In Your Diet

The amount of salt you use may cause problems, possibly triggering some of your your Meniere's disease symptoms, or an all out attack.  Salt intake should be monitored and controlled and it is best to be informed about the levels of salt found in common, everyday foods.  The levels of salt and the effects it could have on your blood pressure may surprise you.


Meniere’s Disease, Hypertension and Stress: A Different Way of Thinking

Have you ever gone to your doctor and after describing your Meniere's Disease symptoms, you find yourself walking out with a prescription for an antihypertensive drug instead?  It may have been that when you were in the doctor's office, you were under more stress than usual which might have elevated your blood pressure more than normal.  This article may help you to understand why there might not have been anything the doctor could have done about about your Meniere's Disease symptoms at the time.


Anatomy And Physiology (A&P) - The Make Up Of Your Body And How It Functions

Understanding the anatomy and physiology of the human body is very important if you suffer from Meniere's Disease.  It will help you to understand how all of the bodies systems interact with each other and how changes in one area of your body can affect other areas of your body.  Anatomy would be the organs and structures within your body and physiology is the physical and chemical process of how you and your parts move and function as a whole.


Reflecting On Chemicals Going Into Your Body.  Some of These May Be Behind Your Meniere's Disease Symptoms.

If you have Meniere's disease, different chemicals can be a problem and that can even include the medications that you are taking.  Chemicals can come in different combinations and they are even found within your own body.  Chemicals can enter your body in many different ways and they can interact with your own bodies chemistry which might cause a reaction or even trigger a Meniere's attack.  It is important to understand that whatever you take must work with you and not against you and to recognize when something is hurting you and not helping you.


Headaches (Or Head Aches) and Meniere's Disease ...Why?

A headache is simply something that is hurting our brain.  For this to happen, there can be many different reasons which may be either external (outside our body) or internal (inside our body).  When something hurts our brain, we want immediate relief, but it is also important to try and find the possible cause(s).


Who’s In Charge Here? Thinking About Our Body’s Healthy Maintenance

This article is similar to a short course on how your body operates and where to find online medical information so that you can be better informed.  It is important to understand how your body operates, the anatomy and physiology,  and how and why your body needs to be maintained so that you might be able to live a healthier, happier life.  It is a lot easier now to find medical information online so you might be able understand how your body works and what may be happening inside and outside.
