The "John of Ohio" Meniere’s Regimen
Anybody who has been diagnosed with Ménière’s Disease (MD) knows that it’s a struggle. A struggle to be understood; a struggle to find answers; and most of all a struggle to live with every day.
At the beginning of diagnosis a GP will likely refer a suffer to an Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT) specialist who will then request a hearing test, electrocochleography, a CT scan &/or an MRI. Once the results are in the ENT might tell the patient something like this… “Well it looks like you have Ménière’s Disease. Try avoiding salt, caffeine & alcohol. Here’s a script for a betahistine (Serc), diazepam (Valium), prochlorperazine (Stemetil) and indapamide (Natrilix SR). If it becomes really unliveable come back to me and we can look at some options for surgery.” That’s about the extent of advice & support the medical community offers.
Hmmm, which is more frustrating? The dizziness, nausea, brain fog, hearing loss, tinnitus, aural fullness & debilitating attacks of MD OR the incredible lack of understanding in the medical community to find real answers for the cause & cure of this disease, as well as practical solutions for its management? I think it’s too close to call.
Because of the lack of support & solutions available, those with MD must find their own path to better living until the medical community can offer some real answers and better outcomes. One such sufferer offering ideas is “John of Ohio” who posted his regimen here: The John of Ohio Meniere’s Regimen
The following items (or closest I could find on Amazon) are from John’s regimen (the comments next to the items are his).
Best wishes to all those searching for wellbeing and a brighter future, and thanks to John of Ohio for having a crack at a very complex health issue.
