If you get diagnosed with Meniere's disease, you are familiar with how this condition brings episodes of intense vertigo, ringing in the ears, and even hearing loss. While there is no known cure for Meniere's disease, there are care options that can help lessen the symptoms. This is good news for patients pursuing vertigo relief in Redwood City linked to Meniere's.
Some patients with Meniere's disease find relief from traditional methods like medications or surgery. But for those keen on veering away from the mentioned options, Meniere's disease patients can choose between reducing inflammation to manage symptoms or upper cervical chiropractic care for long-term relief.
Inflammation is a major contributing factor to the development of Meniere's Disease. Simple ways to reduce inflammation through your diet can help reduce your Meniere's symptoms and achieve vertigo relief in Redwood City. Here are some things you can try:
1. Follow a low sodium diet
Meniere's disease patients are recommended to shift to a low sodium diet to ensure a balance of salt in the body to manage inflammation.
2. Avoid MSG
MSG triggers inflammation that can contribute to your Meniere's disease symptoms. This is particularly common in a lot of processed and instant food. Switch to natural, whole foods instead.
3. Avoid other inflammatory foods
We recommend you avoid hard-to-digest food that can mimic allergenic substances. Patients seeking Meniere's disease and vertigo relief in Redwood City may benefit more from consuming easily digested food and avoiding or reducing sugar, saturated fats, trans fat, refined carbohydrates, gluten, and casein.
Upper Cervical Care is a type of chiropractic care that focuses on correcting misalignments in the bones in the neck. This has shown to be helpful for a variety of conditions, including Meniere's disease.
Chiropractic doctors have seen abnormal upper cervical spine misalignment patterns in patients with Meniere's disease. This misalignment eventually affects the muscles that help your ears to drain fluid properly. When your ears cannot drain fluid in the inner ear, inflammation and Meniere's disease may soon follow.
Realigning the upper cervical bones has received a positive response from patients. This is because realigning the bones and joints in the spine helps relax the craniofacial region, improving fluid drainage from the inner ear, eventually easing the symptoms of Meniere's disease.
To help manage your Meniere's disease symptoms through alternative care, consult with Dr. Tsiegleris of Advanced Spinal Care. He will walk you through the procedure to put your bones back to their correct alignment and help manage Meniere's disease and its accompanying symptoms.
