Meniere’s Disease – Wonderful Homeopathic Remedies For Its Treatment

Meniere’s Disease: Symptoms


Vertigo is one of the most bothersome symptoms suffered by people dealing with Meniere’s Disease. It comes in attacks, with sudden onsets. There is a feeling of spinning (to-and-fro or up-and-down) during an attack. The episodes can last from few minutes to hours. At times the attacks are accompanied by nausea and vomiting. Most of the times there are no warning signs of vertigo, but sometimes the sensation of fullness in ears may precede an attack. In severe cases, there may be abdominal cramps, diarrhea or bradycardia (slow heart rate) associated with the episode.

Hearing Loss

Hearing loss may accompany or precede an attack of vertigo. The hearing loss gets better after the attack and usually becomes normal during remission period. This kind of fluctuating hearing loss is characteristic of Meniere’s disease. However, with recurrent episodes, the improvement in hearing loss may not occur during the remission, and one can develop permanent hearing loss. There is slow and progressive hearing loss in most of the cases.


There is ringing or roaring in ears which gets worse during the attacks. The intensity and pitch of tinnitus can vary during and after the attacks. Tinnitus can be a constant symptom in some of the cases. This can further hinder the hearing and also affects the quality of life.

Fullness in Ears

The patients can experience a sensation of fullness or blockage in the ears. It can occur with vertigo or exist independently. This symptom can also fluctuate, and the intensity varies.

Intolerance to Loud Sounds

In some patients, there is an increased sensitivity to loud noises, and it becomes difficult for them to tolerate the same. This because it is hard for them to tolerate amplification of sounds.

Meniere’s Disease: Causes

The cause behind Meniere’s disease is not yet clear. Environmental and genetic factors both seem to play some role in the development of Meniere’s Disease. The disease is thought to run in families.

Meniere’s Disease occurs when there is distention of the fluid (Endolymph) in the inner ear. The function of endolymph is to aid hearing and to maintain the body balance. The distention can be either due to overproduction or faulty absorption of this endolymphatic fluid. Sometimes, both overproduction and reduced absorption can co-exist and cause Meniere’s Disease.

Genetic Factors

Certain abnormalities in the structure of inner ear running in the families can make a person more disposed to develop Meniere’s disease. They are at high risk if they have a strong family history of Meniere’s disease.


Allergies can also predispose a person to develop Meniere’s. In such cases, the offending allergens stimulate the inner ear causing excess production of endolymph.

Sodium and Water Retention

Certain theories relate increased sodium levels as a contributing factor towards the development of Meniere’s Disease. This causes excessive water retention in the ear leading to endolymphatic hydrops.

Vasomotor Disturbance

There is some sympathetic overactivity (the involuntary part of the nervous system associated with constriction or dilatation of blood vessels) resulting in spasm of the internal auditory artery. This interferes with the function of the cochlear or vestibular epithelium (in the inner ear) leading to vertigo and deafness.

Conditions Similar to Meniere’s Disease

Conditions like a migraine and BPPV (Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo) can have a similar clinical picture as that of Meniere’s Disease. An episode of a migraine can have similar symptoms of vertigo, nausea, and tinnitus. In some instances, there is co-existence of both Meniere’s disease and migraine.

BBPV is one condition which can clinically mimic Meniere’s disease. The marked positional vertigo is more specific for BBPV whereas the vertigo of Meniere’s is not related to the position of the head.

Diagnosis: Meniere’s Disease

The diagnosis of Meniere’s is commonly made based on the triad of symptoms. There will be frequent episodes of vertigo along with tinnitus. The audiometry would show low to moderate frequency of sensory neural hearing loss. The hearing loss can be severe in chronic cases. Also, other causes of vestibular diseases should be ruled out.

Foods to Avoid in Meniere’s Disease

Sodium: There is a strong relation seen between increased intake of sodium and vertigo episodes. It causes more retention of water in the body, that can be one of the triggering factors for Meniere’s disease. A low-sodium diet should be followed to limit the condition.

Nicotine: It can cause vasospasm (sudden constriction of a blood vessel) and the attacks of the disease are more frequent in smokers. Excessive smoking makes one more vulnerable and quitting smoking has helped a lot of patients in managing their condition better.

Caffeine: Avoiding excessive intake of stimulants like coffee and tea is beneficial in such cases. These can predispose an individual to an attack. Caffeine can also increase the loudness of noises associated with tinnitus.

Alcohol: It can affect the volume of fluid in the inner ear and increase vertigo and tinnitus. Patients who have Meniere’s should cut down on their intake of alcohol.

MSG: Most of the Chinese foods contains MSG (monosodium glutamate). They increase the sodium levels in the body and can bring an episode of vertigo or fullness in ears.

Avoid canned or processed foods.

Consume low-sugar fruit juices.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Can Menier’s affect both ears?

Meniere’s usually affects one ear initially, but in chronic cases, one can develop the disease in both ears.

2. Should I avoid driving if I have Meniere’s?

In patients who have vertigo as a prominent and frequent symptom, it is usually advised to avoid driving. As it is difficult to predict a vertigo episode, one should not indulge in activities requiring body balance or minute concentration.

3. Who can be affected by Meniere’s?

Anyone can be affected by this condition. However, Meniere’s is more common in males and frequently seen in the age group of 30-60 years.

4. Can stress trigger Meniere’s disease?

Emotions like extreme anger and stress seem to act as a triggering factor in some cases. The episodes tend to be more frequent during a stressful period.

5. Do I have to live with it for the rest of my life?

Though a chronic disorder, Meniere’s is not something that one has to live with. Homeopathy can treat Meniere’s very effectively. Complete recovery occurs in a majority of the cases with the correct treatment. The chances of recurrence post-treatment are negligible.

6. I am taking the medicine vertin; will it treat my Meniere’s?

Medicines like vertin are betahistine drugs which can help in managing the acute episodes of vertigo. They are meant to control vertigo attacks and are commonly prescribed to patients to help them manage the condition instead of treating it.

7. Is the hearing loss permanent?

Usually, there is a fluctuation in the hearing loss, and it gets better after the episodes are over. In a majority of cases, it is the sensory neural type of hearing loss.
It has been observed that the hearing loss is intermittent, which means that it comes and goes in episodes. Early interventions and treatment can prevent the hearing loss. However, after prolong years of suffering one can develop permanent hearing loss.

8. Does the weather affect the condition?

Meniere’s is seen to get worse during the winters. Symptoms like the fullness of ears and vertigo episodes are more frequent and troublesome for the patients in winters. Also, the tinnitus seems to be louder in some. These are comparatively less severe during summers.

My ENT dr that I finally seen last week gave me Triamterrne 37.5 mg. I take a bp pill at night that is 5mg. Anyway I started taking the medication Saturday morning and I didn’t feel really good but I was ok. Sunday I took it and it dropped my bp really low and made my stomach and chest feel really bloated. I’m not going to take anymore because I’m afraid at this point it will drop me to a deadly point.
