Meniere’s disease causes one to have a ringing in the ears (tinnitus) and feel as if spinning (vertigo). It develops due to a problem with the inner ear and can cause a person to be unable to complete simple daily chores during an attack. What triggers Meniere’s disease?
- Too much emotional stress
- Eating a diet high in salt
- Being over-tired
- A recent virus or other illness
When one recognizes what may be a trigger, avoiding these things can lessen attacks. This may include lifestyle changes that help control the symptoms of Meniere’s. Rather than traditional medication, many are turning to alternative, natural care for Meniere’s disease. But, they often wonder if these alternative methods really work.

Natural Meniere’s Disease Help in St. Charles, Illinois
Dr. Burcon, an upper cervical chiropractor, performed a study that involved 139 Meniere’s patients. Each of the participants received an adjustment by an upper cervical chiropractor. Out of the 139, all but 3 (who left the study early on) reported seeing an improvement. Vertigo and nausea were the symptoms most alleviated.
Upper cervical chiropractors understand the link between a healthy spine and overall health of the body. The spine has the vital job of protecting the spinal cord. In turn, the spinal cord conveys signals to and from the brain and body. If a misalignment is present in the top bones of the neck, particularly the atlas or C1 bone, messages can become distorted, and the symptoms of Meniere’s can ensue.
At 1st Place Chiropractic, we use a gentle method to help the bones that are out of place to realign themselves more naturally. By accomplishing this, the process of communication between the brain and body can be properly established once again. Once the misalignment is corrected, the brain can receive the proper signals about where the body is located in its environment, potentially leading to a reduction in symptoms of Meniere’s disease.
