Menier’s Disease and Acupuncture

– Posted in: Health Concerns
vertigo

Meniere’s disease is classified as a type of dizziness in Chinese medicine. Emotional strain, which can be caused by too much stress or by anger, frustration, or resentment, can lead to health imbalances that over time can lead to chronic conditions such as Meniere’s disease. Overwork or pushing ourselves too hard without adequate rest over years can also deplete the body and lead to health issues. Diet is another important factor, as unhealthy eating particularly the excessive consumption of greasy foods or dairy products or poor or irregular eating habits lead to problems down the road. All of these factors over time contribute to the development of health problems. Meniere’s disease typically develops in middle age.

Acupuncture is a worthwhile option to consider for those suffering from Meniere’s disease.

Western medicine has difficulty treating this condition therefore often people are looking for effective options to help manage the disease. Acupuncture can often help to relieve the symptoms of Meniere’s disease and may also help to improve or resolve the condition. Treatment can help to relieve the dizziness and vertigo, tinnitus, feeling of fullness or pressure in the head, and to reduce the frequency of bouts of symptoms. Over time and with continued treatments, acupuncture may also help to resolve the condition. The combination of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can be of particular benefit to the condition as herbal formulas can help supplement  the results of acupuncture. Due to the chronic nature of this condition, Meniere’s may be slow to treat and may take time to achieve lasting results.

Acupuncture demonstrates that there is hope for difficult, chronic conditions such as Meniere’s disease.
