Managing Meniere’s

If you are reading this, you probably already know that Meniere's Disease is a chronic illness characterized by:

  • Vertigo attacks 
  • Tinnitus (ears ringing) 
  • Fullness in the affected ear(s) 
  • Bouts of imbalance 
  • Nausea/vomiting 
  • Progressive hearing loss 

In addition, many people who have been diagnosed with Meniere’s often experience anxiety related to the possibility of the next vertigo episode. 

You may have heard that there is no cure for it. So, what can you do about it? Can you get vertigo and tinnitus relief?

Acupuncture for Meniere’s 

If you have been diagnosed with Meniere’s Syndrome, the good news is you can manage and in some cases heal Meniere’s. Traditional acupuncture, low-level laser therapy, and Chinese medicine are extremely successful in treating Meniere's symptoms. 

Traditional Acupuncture

Meniere’s symptoms are brought on by the large amount of fluid in the inner ear and ear pressure. In addition to treating the ear itself, several acupuncture points are stimulated to:

  • Reduce vertigo attacks 
  • Decrease the fluid in the inner ear
  • Release ear pressure 
  • Diminish nausea
  • Correct imbalance
  • Improve blood flow and circulation
  • Strengthen the immune system
  • Alleviate anxiety by relaxing the nervous system
  • Allow vital energy to flow

Low-Level Laser Therapy

While being treated with traditional acupuncture, clients can simultaneously engage in low-level laser therapy. Low-level laser therapy increases blood flow in the inner ear and regenerates cells to restore and/or improve hearing. In addition, laser therapy can prevent, reduce, and/or completely eliminate vertigo and/or tinnitus. 

Chinese Medicine

There are even Chinese herbal medicines that are specifically used to treat Meniere’s symptoms such as nausea, dizziness, poor blood circulation, tinnitus, and vertigo. 

Next Steps

Through acupuncture, many patients have had great improvement; in addition to having their hearing restored, they have experienced reduced or complete elimination of vertigo, nausea, fullness in the ear, and/or tinnitus. You can too!
