4-recommended-dietary-strategies-for-menieres-patientsWhen someone tests positive for Meniere’s disease, that person is most likely going to be given medications to deal with vertigo and dizziness. Upper cervical chiropractors, for many years, have provided vertigo relief in Vancouver to people with Meniere’s disease. 

Trademark Symptoms of Meniere’s Disease

  • Vertigo
  • Tinnitus (ringing in the ear)
  • Hearing loss
  • The feeling of fullness in the ear

In some cases, a patient would need to implement some essential dietary changes. These recommendations or strategies for people with Meniere’s disease are focused on attempting to regulate overall fluid balance in the body. 

Four Dietary Recommendations

Reducing or modifying the intake of the following substances will help take the edge off your Meniere’s disease symptoms. What are these four substances that need regulation? 

  • High sugar content foods 

Foods such as whole grains with complex sugars are better alternatives than those with simple sugars, like honey or table sugar.

  • High salt content foods 

Excessive sodium intake can impact the regulation of fluids in the body. Therefore, moderation is good for you. 

  • Caffeinated foods and beverages 

Consider reducing or eliminating your intakes of caffeinated beverages, like coffee and soda. Doing so can help minimize the intensity of tinnitus. Also, be careful of chocolate because it also contains caffeine.

  • Alcohol

Alcohol can instantly affect the fluid within the inner ear negatively.
