Can Supplements Help Meniere's Disease?

Question: I am an 81-year-old man who has been diagnosed with Meniere's disease. Can any natural supplements stop or lessen my dizzy spells?

 

Dr. Blaylock's Answer:

New research indicates that this condition is triggered by inflammation in the inner ear apparatus. At your age, poor blood supply can be a contributing factor, but other causes include food allergies, magnesium deficiency, and exposure to food excitotoxins.

The cells involved in Meniere's disease are very sensitive to glutamate, so exclude MSG, hydrolyzed protein, natural flavorings, sodium or calcium caseinate, soy products, autolyzed yeast, and other excitotoxic additives.

The supplement vinpocentine increases the blood flow in the brain and inner ear, and magnesium reduces the inflammation and protects the nerve cells from excitotoxicity. Avoid polyunsaturated vegetable cooking oils.

Curcumin and quercetin in combination may also help.
