Ménière’s disease is a chronic disease of the inner ear with symptoms like dizziness, vertigo, tinnitus, hearing loss, nausea, vomiting, and digestion issues. There is no cure for the condition. However, several natural support strategies can help alleviate symptoms.
Let’s take a deeper look at Ménière’s disease, its symptoms, conventional treatments, and natural support strategies.
What is Ménière’s disease?
Ménière’s disease is a chronic disease of the inner ear. Its symptoms include ear congestion, tinnitus, dizziness, vertigo, and hearing loss. It typically affects only one ear, although it may affect both ears in some people.
Ménière’s disease may cause sudden dizziness, temporary tinnitus, or muffled hearing. Some people will have one attack of dizziness and then a period of time passes before having another attack. Other people can have multiple attacks closer together. On occasion, vertigo may be so serious that it causes a “drop attack,” during which the person loses balance and falls.
About 600,000 people are diagnosed with Ménière’s disease in the United States with about 45,000-60,000 new cases each year. Ménière’s disease is progressive and can be debilitating.
