New Website Section - Nutritional Supplements and
When people realize that we are
speaking of nutritional supplements, one of the most common comments I hear
is that they already eat a healthy diet. They exercise. They take
supplements. Why do they still have
Meniere's Disease symptoms?
The basic point is that not all
nutritional supplements are alike. As we mentioned on the front page
of the website, Meniere's is not a disease, it is a collection of symptoms. The
come from an underlying cause. If you have a
healthy immune system,
whatever the underling cause could be, they should not be a problem for you.

Anaphylaxis and Meniere's Disease
represents a “state of protection”. Essentially that means your body is
protecting you against something that has just entered it. Something that
will upset the wellbeing of your entire body. We are not talking about a
little cut or a bruised elbow. This can be a life threatening situation.
Over the last 8 years, it has become increasingly apparent that
not a disease. “Something” is irritating or putting pressure on your
and or hearing nerve(s). What it is is unknown until start to you
The very same
thing happens, but in a much more serious way when “something” invades your
entire body (not just one localized area as in the inner ear). In this local
area you have a balance nerve and a hearing nerve: one “set” for each ear.
Your balance nerve “gives” symptoms ranging from lightheadedness and
dizziness to drop attacks and anything in between.
Your hearing nerve
gives symptoms to do with a complete lack of hearing to horrible disabling
noises…and, again, anything in between. It all depends on the intensity of
the “intruder”. In each case, there has to be an intruder. So I always teach
people to look for the underlying cause(s). There has to be one or more.
Your body is continually trying to protect you. Always! Naturally! In the
case of an anaphylactic reaction, the body is trying to protect you from a
systemic invasion. In the inner ear, it is trying to protect you from a

A Very Simplistic Explanation of Free Radicals
and Anti-Oxidants" & an Antioxidant Tutorial
Antioxidants and free radicals are very important terms, but for
many of us, they are confusing at the beginning. So I have
written one very simplistic explanation and then have used a very
detailed and scientifically-correct tutorial to help you understand
the basic concept. If you don't recognize harmful situations, you
can't make healthy decisions.
It is important for you to have some
understanding of these concepts so you can make conscious, informed
"everyday" decisions concerning your health, and these should
include nutrition, exercise, and lifestyle.
Ongoing research has
found many "things" we felt were safe (and tasty) to ingest, now are
found to be harmful. It takes years for degeneration to create
negative results in your body. Having the knowledge and the tools to
make health-related decisions is crucial. To explain the role
of anti oxidants, we have put together this two part article.

Supplements and Meniere's Disease. Why All Vitamins Are NOT the Same
Generally, “vitamin” is the term that we tend to use in our
everyday conversations. We could be referring to a true vitamin, a mineral
or to the overall comprehensive “nutritional supplement”. Mostly likely we
mean nutritional or dietary supplements. All supplements are not alike! All
vitamins are not alike just as one coffee is not the same as another. We
know they are not. We have our favorites. Please don’t be fooled just
because it seems pretty harmless and says: “natural”. Herbs, including
herbal teas, are the basis of many drugs. If you are not sure, please
consider getting some reliable help.
We have a lot of people asking us
what a good vitamin or nutritional supplement is. This article gives you
some insight on how to choose a good quality nutritional supplement.
