Meniere's Disease and the
Importance of a Healthy Immune System
A lot of the emails we get
mention the immune system frequently.
We all “sort of” understand what we mean when we talk about the immune
system and how it relates to your Meniere's disease symptoms, but do we really understand its significance? Do we know how to
get around it and get it back to life, your life?
In very basic terms your immune system is your overall body protection.
We have added more
content since 2014 than just this one article, but due to some limitations
in the web design program that we are using, it has been a little difficult
sometimes to keep this page updated properly. We are working on this
and we should have something sorted out soon.

Coping With Meniere's
Disease as a Family
My Mother, Karin Henderson, usually writes the content for the
website and I am usually in the background working on the website and
sometimes answering the phone and trying to answer some of your
Meniere's disease questions. One thing I keep hearing over and over is
that family and friends do not understand, or even believe what some of
you are dealing with.
This is a question that I have no problem answering. As a family
member, I saw how people reacted to how my father used to act when he
was really suffering from his symptoms or when he was going through
an attack in public.

Meniere's Disease Diet and Nutrition Information
We get many emails asking for information about a
Meniere’s Disease diet. People wonder if it is possible to get around
these unpleasant symptoms by adhering to a special diet. Many people,
probably most people, are willing to change their lifestyle if it would
help them to avoid having to live with the very unpleasant symptoms of
this condition. Every day we are told by someone that they are on a low
salt diet, antihistamines and diuretics. Many times, we are also told
these don’t do anything to help that person.
Personally, I really wanted to understand what the main medical sites
tell people about Meniere's disease diets and why they make the
recommendations they do. My purpose for this article is not only to
clarify my own understanding and why the recommendations would be given,
but to also help others understand what they put into their bodies can
have an effect on their health and their Meniere's symptoms.

Left Ear Pain and Inner Pressure as Symptoms of Meniere's Disease
Two of the most frequently asked questions that we get concern people
experiencing pain in their left ear and inner ear pressure, or fullness
in their ears.
To help you understand what is going on, I wanted to bring you an awareness
of where the ear is located in your body and why you might have this
pressure or pain in just the left ear, or feel congested. This makes a huge
difference in how you look at the rest of the balance and hearing

Can Meniere's Disease, or Meniere's Disease Symptoms,
be Considered an Auto Immune Disease?
If you accept the fact that
Meniere’s Disease is an
autoimmune disease, then could you ask yourself why would your body attack
itself? Why it would want to? Its constant and continual and automatic
response is always to heal itself. This is a scientific fact. So, are
Meniere's Disease symptoms such as
dizziness or other
hearing problems part of the cause, or part of the effect?
This is all part the inflammatory process and it is one aspect of your
body’s immune system and response.
If you have been a reader in my articles, you know I am all about “cause and
effect”. By now, we all should know that nothing ever happens in our bodies
without a cause: that is a scientific fact that no one can argue.
So what could be causing the body to attack itself to allow the name
“Meniere’s Disease” to qualify as an “autoimmune disease”?
