Some Thoughts On Meniere's Disease and Chelation Therapy; Learning About Possible Metal Toxicity In Your Body

I have had several discussions about chelation therapy and how it relates to Meniere's Disease lately and it caused me to do more studying about the subject. So what I am describing here are the questions from people with Meniere's Disease for which I sought answers while doing hours and hours of research. These are very simple descriptions of my findings. This is a very serious and important subject.

 

Hormones and How They Work Within the Human Body

Hormones are chemical messengers. Most go directly into your bloodstream. Their job is to regulate your body’s activities and its chemistry: hence the messenger role term. It is important to remember that all of these hormones work in unison and interact. Nothing in your body works in isolation.

 

Anatomy And Physiology - The Make Up Of Your Body And How It Functions

 

This Article Has Been Updated.

 

If you have Meniere's Disease, it is very important that you understand human anatomy and physiology. It will help you understand what you are going through and what your doctor is talking about. ANATOMY is the study, classification, and description of structures and organs of the body. PHYSIOLOGY is the study and process of the function of the human. It is the study of the physical and chemical processes involved in the functioning of the living organisms and their component parts.

 

Why Do We Have To Be Healthy?

I received this unusual question a while ago and though it might make an interested in this thought-provoking idea as well as being an interesting article.  Why should we be healthy?  What is the opposite or alternative? The word “health” encompasses several parts of your being: physical, mental, social.  Lives change, and so does your thinking when you face illness with a close family member. Suddenly you realize they have “become” sick. That’s an action word: not just a thing. And this is happening, right now and you wish you could stop it. But you don’t have any idea where to start. Our medical community is still not inclined to teach prevention as opposed to treatment.

Meniere's Disease and the Inflammatory Process

I thought you might enjoy a little more insight into Meniere’s symptoms: balance and hearing problems. The inflammatory process is carries on the same for any irritant.  But for any Meniere’s sufferer, it would be really encouraging to know that the Meniere's Disease symptoms are caused by “something”. That they don’t just exist or go into remission and then come back later on. There always is some underlying cause.

 

In our four years of sharing and learning about Meniere’s, we have found three main areas to be more common as “possible triggers”. First is any dental work including mercury fillings and root canals. Next comes sinus problems. In the article, you will see me discussing things I have learned about using the Netie Pot, sprays, and drugs. And thirdly, chemicals seem to be a possible major trigger for many. Of course there are many other possible triggers.

I was going through the website this afternoon doing some housekeeping when I came across Debbie's and Michael's stories.  I realized that both of these stories had been buried within the website and I was thinking of moving both of them to a new page.  For some reason I stopped and took a few minutes out of my day to read both of these stories and I am very glad that I did. 

 

It has been a long time since I have had to deal with any of my fathers' drop attacks or watching him crawl to bed with a bucket in case he was sick.  I had lost some of the understanding of what it is like for the family to live through this terrible affliction.

 

Reading Debbie's and Michael's stories brought that all back to me.  I thought that it was important for this to be shared with those of you who are looking for information on Meniere's Disease. 

 

I was on the outside, looking into what my father had been going through, I cannot even begin to understand the torment, but these two stories brought back a lot of what I had forgotten.

 

Debbie's Story with Meniere's Disease

My name is Debbie, I am 45 years old and I have dealt with the horrible disabling disease called Meniere's Disease since November of 1997.  The Doctor's told me that I had tinnitus and there was nothing that could be done for it.  I was told I would have to just learn to live with it.

 

Michael's Story with Meniere's Disease

My story began back in February 1996. I went along to the doctor for what I thought would be a routine syringing of my left ear. It had felt full - blocked up. I had also felt very slightly dizzy, which I put down to the blocked ear and wearing my walkman too much.  The doctor took one look, told me there was nothing in the ear then announced that I must have Meniere's Disease.

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

We think in terms of headaches, but in reality, we mean something is hurting our brain. If you meant any other parts of the head, you would mention it by its correct name. An earache, a toothache, a sinus or nose problem, dizziness, deafness. Here we are dealing the brain: the major structure of the head, and how it can ache.

Personal Infection Control - Making Sure You Are Healthy Enough To Withstand Unhealthy Conditions

Personal Infection Control - Making Sure You Are Healthy Enough To Withstand Unhealthy Conditions.

Infection control may seem to be out of place on a Meniere's Disease website, but if you are suffering from Meniere's Disease, the last thing you need is to be down with a head cold on top of the sinus pressure, vertigo and stress you are already under.

There are many unrecognized and potentially-infectious situations. Many times you are exposed to them and don't even know it. But if you suspect something, your choices are to be proactive or to be reactive. Prevention or treatment. Personally I think prevention is healthier, less painful and more cost effective.


To keep from getting sicker, you may want to take some preventative measures. You will need to recognize a possible risk. And if you are exposed you would want to know how you could protect yourself and keep from getting sick. To start this learning process, you need to know what is in place right now to protect you.

 

We hope that through this article we will inform you of the potential threats out there and how to avoid them.

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

This is going to be a short, easy to understand “course” on how your body “operates” and needs to be maintained. I will discuss some “new” developments in how people find medical information for their own use. You will learn some anatomy and physiology and then I will share principles that help you understand why your body does certain things. I’ll include some examples and add questions I have received recently that tie into this subject. I am also going to share some basic principles as to how your body functions.
